Here is my latest creation! It's a paper bag mini album using red "Celebrate It" paper bags from Michael's. I used DCWV's "MARIPOSA" paper stack. I followed the tutorial by Kathy from Paper Phenomenon, *with my own adjustments*. I will also be posting a video shortly. Enjoy!
I embellished the cover with flowers from I Am Roses (altered with "Gold" Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels). The charms are from Prima (Marion Smith's "Vintage Trinkets"). The sentiment is a stamp by My Creative Time (You Had Me At Chocolate), with an overlay of "Gold" Glimmer Mist, stamped onto a die cut from My Creative Time (Fancy Frame Stamp and Die Set). I used some "Say It In Pearls" by Prima. The book is bound using sheer green ribbon.

I made this album for my sister & brother-in-law's 12th wedding anniversary. So in addition, I also made a matching card:
Wow has it really been four months since I've posted? This Summer was just full of doing fun family things that I didn't have a moment to scrap. I did finish some projects that needed completion, so as I find the time to blog again, I'll be getting those up as soon as possible.
The first up is the Baby Boy Mini Album that I made for my friend's little boy. It's a very simple chipboard album from Clear Scraps, that I just covered in different patterned paper and cardstock from my random stash. I also added some 4x6 chipboard pages and made Simple Paper Bag Envelopes (inspired by Stephanie from With A Grin).
Keepsake box houses the mini album.
Used my Cricut for the title, and "Create A Critter" (Cartridge) for the dinosaur.
"It's a Boy!" is a sticker, that I backed with cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive. "Welcome Little One" is a stamp from Fiskars. I cut out the name, "Jacob" using "Storybook" (Cricut Cartridge).
Pages 1 & 2. "Just Arrived" is a wood-block stamp.
Pages 3 & 4. "Mother" is a 7Gypsies stamp. The onesie and footprints are cut from "New Arrival" (Cricut Cartridge).
Pages 5 & 6. "Sweet Dreams" is a Fiskars stamp. Here is the first "Simple Paper Bag Envelope". The sentiments are also stamps from Fiskars.
Pages 7 & 8. More stamping from Fiskars.
Pages 9 & 10. Second "Simple Paper Bag Envelope" and more Fiskars stamping.
