Haunted House MIni Album | Simple Stories | Spooky Nights

Tuesday 21 September 2021


Hey everyone! I have a really cute teeny tiny mini album to share today for Simple Stories using the Spooky Nights collection.

I was really inspired by the 2x2” squares on the 2x2/4x4 Elements paper. I cut them all into squares and distressed the edges of each. These became the pages of my mini album. I wanted to intersperse some plain pages amongst the patterned squares so I cut some squares from black card the same size.

To make the album I took a long piece of ribbon and laid it out flat on the table. I then applied tape to the squares and sandwiched the ribbon between them. I left a small gap between each square to allow for the to be concertina folded. Upon adding the black squares, I also attached vellum overlays to these squares.

I machine stitched around each square using black thread on my sewing machine. This is decorative but also serves to hold the ribbon securely in place.

To make the front cover I used the haunted house ephemera piece from the Bits and Pieces pack. I decorated it with gold glitter detail and I backed it with black card. I attached one of the squares to the front cover. At this point I also had to attach a second length of ribbon to act as the closure. I made a back cover too by sticking two more pieces of ephemera back to back. These were from the Journal Bits pack.

To decorate my little pages I added all the small things I could find: enamel dots, small chipboard pieces, and Cardstock Stickers. The pages are so tiny that they didn’t need too much embellishing! I added my photos to the flip-up pages and either added more photos to the overlays or embellished those as well. There are eight photos in this cute book!

I really hope you have enjoyed seeing this teeny tiny mini book come together, it is super cute!
Happy scrapping
