Mini Paper Bag Album


Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!! Michael was at his best for he got to see Alex, Coralee's son.
Coralee and I got a chance to catch up and really enjoyed our time together. 

Today I am showing you a paper bag album that I started before I moved my craft room, it got misplaced therefore forgotten about but as I was digging through my boxes in the basement I found it and decided to finish it! I will be filling this album with pictures of Michael.
I didn't take a picture of every page but you get the idea!


I inked all the pages with brown black distress ink along with the tags that each have a flower added to the top so they can be easily pulled out. The tags are also inked on both sides. Tags are fantastic to add a journal or pictures! I don't remember where I found the paper bag tutorial because it has been too long but there are many on youtube!


Each page has flaps and slots to add tags, tickets etc.This makes the album fun for whoever is looking at it!








Have a terrific day!!!

You have excelled yourself here, my goodness this is beautiful Naomi. I have a weakness for beautiful albums, and I can see this full of beautiful memories, and photographs. I adore the colours you picked, and how you decorated with various opening areas. I need to send you a package of bits I have here.... :-)

GASP! How much do I love this?! I've had it on my heart to make a mini-album and I really, really hope I get the chance in the next month or two. I'm a bit fearful, but every time I see a gorgeous creation like THIS ONE, I get further encouraged to give it a whirl. :o) Every detail is so beautiful and I am simply in love with the tags. Sensational creation as always, my talented friend! You and your creations always make me smile. :o) :o) :o) (See?!) God and I love you, my dear Naomi!!!

Hugs and blessings!
