Happy Sunday once again!
I hear the sound of lawn mowers all around the neighborhood as I set and write this post. We have had so much rain this past week that the grass is growing by leaps and bounds. I love Spring, but I have to admit that mowing is not one of my favorite things to do.
Anyway, I have a recipe paper bag album I did for a friend and wanted to share it with you. I used Graphic 45's "Parisian Cafe" collection in the 8"x 8" pad size. I really liked how it turned out.

 I found this crochet lace at Tuesday Morning.
 The cake stamp came from Michaels $1.00 bin.

 Mason jar tags can be used to write recipes on.
 I stitched lace on the tags.
 Seam binding is tied to each recipe tag.

 I pulled some tags for a peek of what is tucked away that you can't see.

Wild+Free/Love Clippings Mini Album

Happy Sunday!!       What a gorgeous day here in the Ozarks!! 
I wanted to share the album I finally finished up. I used Frank Garcia's new Love Clippings and his Wild + Free collections. The colors are simply beautiful and the collections work so well together. I dug out the cinch to do the binding, then tied some seam binding and twine on the coils. What a fun little mini!

 I used some pretty pink doilies through out the album.
 Scalloped envelopes are just too cute.

 I also used these cute little 3x3 cards and envelopes.
 Lots of pockets and tags.
 All the photo mates are 4x4 in size.
 Back cover.

Travelers Notebook

Happy Sunday!!
 What a beautiful day it has turned out to be! I am sooooo looking forward to Spring. It's my favorite time of year simply because everything starts to come to life. The flowers, the trees, the bushes and even the grass. COME ON SPRING!
 I wanted to share the travelers notebook (a new product) I picked up at Michaels a few weeks back. Of course I used a 50% off coupon as these little books are a tad expensive ($12.99). It came with an insert that held just a few pages that were really thick, so I took that insert out and added 4 not so thick inserts that I already had in my stash.  The cover is absolutely gorgeous. Here are a couple of photos of the notebook.

Sophie's Notes

I hope everyone has had a GREAT Sunday!
I wanted to take a moment and give an update on my new Facebook group called Sophie's Notes. I have deleted Scrapbook Junkies fb page along with my personal fb page in order to separate the two and for them to have separate accounts. Here is the link to Sophie's Notes:
I hope to see you there!

Graphic 45 "Safari Adventure" Paper Bag Album

What a week!! It started with spring like temps that lasted all week long. I even broke out the capris and flip flops. Temperatures hit as high as 81 degrees and setting a new record high for this time of year. Today it is raining, very cold and has even spit a little snow now and again. CRAZY weather!!
Anyway, I wanted to post the last paper bag album that I made while I was on that paper bag craze. I used Graphic 45's "Safari Adventure" collection.

Front cover has a burlap flower that adds a nice touch.
 Tags and pockets through out.
 Love the colors in this collection.
 Photo mattes are wallet size and 3.5" x 5".
 Elephants, tigers and zebras, oh my!

Prima's "Heaven Sent" Paper Bag album

 WOW! Where has the time gone??? I cannot believe that it was October that I last posted. I hope everyone has had a wonderful past few months with the holidays and all.
While I was gone,  I purchased a few new toys, one being the We Are Memory Keepers Tab Punch. I might really enjoy this punch and mini is in the making.
 I have had this paper bag album done for sometime and am finally getting it posted. I also have another paper bag album finished that I made with G45's "Wild Safari" that I will be posting next weekend. Until then, HAPPY CRAFTING!!

 On the front cover I have added a little bling.
 The colors in this paper collection are gorgeous.
 The acetate pocket on this page adds a bit of sweetness.
 Photo mattes are wallet size and 4"x4".
 I placed a couple of journaling booklets throughout.

MY "Tulsa Vintage Show" Junk Journal

Happy Monday!! I hope that you are having a blessed day. It has been a beautiful day here in the Ozarks.
Over the
Labor Day weekend, my sister and niece and I went to the Tulsa Vintage Show in Oklahoma. The shopping was GREAT!  While browsing through the booths, I picked up several cards advertising upcoming Junk shows. I decided to make a junk journal with my finds, cards and the few pictures I had taken with the phone. I had a blast making this.

Junk Journal
 I used my Cinch for the binding.
 Tim holtz "Wall Flowers" used on the front and back cover.
 Junk Ranch - Oh how I want to go!
 I used the We R Memory Keepers typewriter to journal.
 Old Air Mail envelope that I picked up at the show.
 This is a large card for an upcoming show that I cut in half.
 I used brown lunch bags for some pages.
 Kept several receipts and stapled them in the journal.
 More receipts and awesome finds.
 Love the manila tags.
 My niece shopping here.
 I did some journal on the back of an old post card.
