I am addicted to these paper bag albums. This gate fold design found at followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com allows for 32 4x6 photos and 20 2.75x4 inch photos. I used CTMH Emporium paper pack and coordinating stickease. I love how it turned out. This is the tag pulled form the small pocket. I attached photos on the front and the back. This is the tag pulled out of the pocket created by the open end of the paper bag. Its approximately 5x7, I did a border punch along one end and a scrap piece of paper edges the other end. This is the tag pulled out of the pocket created by the open angle of the page attachers. I did the border punch along one end again for continuity. I didn't do a lot of layers of paper to frame the photos because it would add to the overall bulk of the album and I didn't want to burst the sides. It closes nice and flat because it is not over stuffed with embellishments or paper layers. I had made this album a few weeks ago, but I filled it with the photos this weekend at my friend Karyn's Creative Memories national scrapbook day event. Thanks Karyn, I had a blast and am so happy with the projects completed there. This is a fun lil' mini album to make. I hope you give it a try. Enjoy!
I am addicted to paper crafting. I have been scrapbooking since 1995, but have recently become hopelessly enamored with card making, mini album making, and gift box making. I dabble on the Cricut Expressions machine and the Pazzles but no one item or process defines or confines my creative process. I must admit I spend too many hours perusing Pinterest, but I frequently scraplift the great ideas and inspiration found there. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to go create something fun and fabulous.
