Main Kit – Shaker Pages & Hand Punched Confetti by Angela Tombari

Hey friends! Angela back on the blog with you with a brand new project I made using my February 2020 Main kit. I made a ‘Never-ending’ mini album! Yes, because it can be leafed through from the front and the back cover, indiscriminately.






The structure is an accordion. I used three pieces of 5 x 12 patterned paper from Bloom Street collection by Paige Evans. I scored each piece every 4 inch so to obtain three pages. Then, I adhered one piece to the other, overlapping one of the three pages of one strip to one page of the second strip.






Before placing the photos and any embellishment, I stitched all around the pages of the mini, to add a bit of texture.






Our today assignment as design team member, was to add to our projects pocket pages with hand punched confetti. So, I incorporated them in different parts of the mini. Below is a star pocket page filled in with tiny stars. I punched them with a mini and hold star punch I had in my stash.





Across the star, I adhered the word Celebrate. This is a puffy sticker by American Crafts from Hello collection. I also added a few glitter gold confetti I punched with two different sizes of circle punch.






Using the same same word as a guide, I hand stitched Celebrate on the following page and I stitched between the page and the photo, to add color to the black and white photo.






I added just a few small embellishements to finish the pages.






The first side of the mini album is finished. The page with the star is supposed to be the back cover but, at the same time, is the cover of the back part of the pages.






Since the mini album is about my son 7th birthday, I had cut the number 7 to create a fun charm. I used the embellishment packaging to create it. I filled it in with some hand punched confetti and stitched with my sewing machine to secure.






This is my preferred page because we are arrived at the cake time! On one side, I adhered one of the pockets from Pinkfresh Studio and on the other side, I created a collage of photos with an empty spot that I filled in with a layer of embellishments.






Here I created a pocket where I placed a Pinkfresh Studio tag and another tag I made with a leftover of patterned paper.


Here is another shaker page whit hand punched confetti and a heart window.






Voilà last page. Closing it, you’ll find yourself at the beginning of the mini album, again. Fun, right?






Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you liked the project and feel inspired to create with the gorgeous Hip Kit Club kits.

Love, NG
