Paper Bag Mini Album

This Mini albums was made using Paper bags, I haven't used the paper bags before because its very hard to get hold of them here in the UK, the bags I got aren't the best as the aren't perfect in shape but after a little adjusting they turn out pretty good to work with.
I used 6 paper bags on this album, the paper stack i used is by melissa Francis they were 12 x 12 sheets, each page has photo mats, and in each pocket page there is large tags 8.'' x 5.5.
I used my alternations die to cut out some letters to add the words CHERISH & SMILE.
The front cover has been embellished with a stamped sentiment, I have added I Am Roses ,WOC flowers
Flat back pearls,Lace Trim and a Martha Stewart Butterfly.
I have used Vinyl for the spin binding and 2 chipboards for the front and back cover.
The over all size of this album is 8.5'' x 6.5''
I had fun making this album as the paper bags were a treat to work with.
I would really like to get hold of some smaller paper bags to try making smaller albums, i have got lots of 6x4 photos i would like to get into an album and small paper bags would be better.

Tags Desk calendar & journal

just a few tags and journals i have made, I was really just experimenting with the tags, after making some homemade glimmer mist.
The journals are fun to make, I just use my scraps of paper to fill the journals and use chipboard covers and do some stamping, quite easy and simple.

Forever Friends Mini Album

Using the 6x6 Prima paper pad ''Reflections''
 Front cover has been embellished with I Am roses,martha stewart Butterfly,prima bling
a handmade charm with various beads, ribbons on the binding.
I stamped a scalloped circle with ''friends are forever'' and put it on top of 2 larger scalloped circles.
A few of the pages i have left plain as the papers
are to beautiful to cover or hide.
