Primrose Paper Bag Album

Happy Sunday everyone!! 
Here is a paper bag album I made using DCWV's "The Primrose" collection. This collection is a beautiful vintage shabby chic. It has become one of my all time favorites.

 Michaels paper flowers on the cover along with a mini picture frame.
 A coffee stained doily adds some vintage flare.
 I added lots of seam binding.
 Love all those mini booklets and tags.
 Check out the paper bag edging.
 More tags for journaling.
 Beautiful colors in this collection.

An ABC Primer Paper Bag Album

Happy Sunday once again!!! It is just a BEAUTIFUL day here in Missouri. I hope you all are having a blessed day!!
I have been trying to finish up some projects that I had started in the past and have been sitting around undone for some time. Here is a paper bag album that I started around 2 years ago using leftover scraps from the "An ABC Primer" collection.

 I love this paper collection. 
 I have placed several wallet sized photo mattes in this album.
 Check out the ruler belly band.
 I stapled the tabs on these two mattes.
 A side pocket holds this little booklet.
 Personalize this mini with your name on the back cover.

Sweet Sentiments Folio Album

I have finally finished one of my albums that I had started some time ago and had to set it aside for one reason or another. It's a great little album to make. It was quick and easy. It is a great way to use up some of your left overs. Be sure to check out MySistersScrapper on YouTube. Enjoy!


Folio / Waterfall Mini Album

Great Sales at Michaels!

Happy Sunday to everyone!!!! I hope you have a BLESSED day. 
I wanted to share a couple of sales items that start today at Michaels. They have the 65 lb. cardstock on sale for 5 pkgs. for $10.00. That's a great buy at $2.00 a package. You can buy one or ten and only pay $2.00. Also the adhesives are 40% off and their craft storage system pieces are 60% off. You can get the 12 x 12 plastic cases 3 for the price of 1 which makes it 3 at $9.99. These are some good buys. I know where I will be headed later today.
