Christmas Paper Bag Album

Today I am going to show you a mini album that I made last Christmas. It was before my blogging days. After an entire year- I am still in love with this little album. And all my customers like to look at it when they come to class. The Dashing Designer Series Paper that I used in the book is retired- but if you want to recreate this- you could use any of the Holiday Designer Series Paper packs in the current Catalog or the Holiday Mini.

Here is the cover:

And the inside pages...

And here is a picture of the tags that I put inside the paper bags....

I gave these albums to the kid's grandparents and godparents last year and they were a hit! I know that I displayed by copy all year long!

So here are some details....

-I buy my paperbag albums from ebay. I buy the 6x6 albums and I like to buy the ones that are sewn together as they stay together much better!

-The albums already have the holes punched in them- but if you just add all the pages and then try and punch through them with the crop a dile- it will be too thick. So make the pages and punch the holes before you glue them into the album!

-I used lots of punches and ribbon in this project. The only stamp set that I used was Merry & Bright (still available) for the little reindeers. And the patterned paper is called Dashing- but it is retired.

-I got these pictures taken last year at Portrait Innovations. The outfits were purchased from ebay.

Happy Stamping!

This is beautiful! I'm sure the people that got it were very blessed by your true labor of love.
BTW - found you by "Googling" the I Wis kit.
