Paper Bag Mini: MARIPOSA

Hello Crafty Friends!

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:

Gave them the matching tag that I made for May:



And, here is the whole matching set:

That's all folks!
