The beginning's of an altered paper bag album!
Several weeks ago I attended a scrap booking convention and saw some altered paper bag albums. I really liked them, but haven't had the time to make one yet! It is, however, #3,467 on my current to do list! While browsing some of the many wonderful blogs out there I stumbled upon some really beautiful altered paper bag albums on Stampin' D'Amour's blog. (I am sorry I have not learned to link yet...that is #3,466 on my list!!) ((Pamela, if you happen to read this please let me now if it is ok to add you to my blog roll!)) : ) Anyhow, her albums are gorgeous! I thought I would attempt to start one of my own! So far...I have just this one page! : ) The cover! I used three brown paper bags and some miscellaneous ribbon scraps to tie it together. I used Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stock. I used the Fabulous Flowers Stampin' Up! stamp set and Old Olive and Pink Passion ink. I embossed the flowers and used pop dots to layer for a 3d look. I put a Fire Ice Brad in the center and added some flower embellishments for some sparkle! I haven't decided yet what I am going to use this for but am looking forward to working on the insides! I will post more as I work on it!
