Texas Paper Bag Album

I am going on a road trip, heading south to Texas, with my friend Liz and I made us each a little scrapbook to document our trip. This was so much fun to make and I actually googled how to make a paper bag album and found this GREAT tutorial. 

This is the cover of the album. I crumpled up the card stockand then rubbed my ink pad over the card stock togive it the appearance of leather. I wanted it to look like this was a leather bound book.

My friend Liz had a Cricut cartridge that I used to makethe hat and the word "Texas". The piece of wood that the word Texas is on, I used a piece of card stock and stamped it with a background stamp that looks like woodgrain. I used mini brads to look like nails.

 Each page has a tab that when you pull on a page comes out so that you can add more photos or maybe some hidden journaling. The two pices of cardstock that have the flowers on them are not adhered down, these are removable so that you can add more photos or journaling behind them. I taped the side of the bottom of the bag so that I would have a pocket in which to place the card stock.

 On the left page I added a photo mat using tied corners. I attached it to the far left side so that we could journal about the photo on the right. 

The left page I used a waterfall technique that I learned many years ago from a scrapbooking kit I purchased. I thought that this would allow us more photos as well and couldn't resist using the jeans pocket from an old retired stamp set that I have had for many years. This pocket is an actual pocket and we will be able to add a photo or some journaling to it as well.

 The reason for this trip is that we are going to visit Liz's son Chris who was signed on by the Dallas Jr Stars hockey team and is staying there while playing hockey for them. The left page has the Dallas Jr Stars logo on it so we will be able to add photos of Chris's games that we will get to see while we are there. I made the logo from chip board stars and alphabets that I had purchased several years ago and never got around to using them. If you go to the Dallas Jr. Stars website the actual logo looks exactly like mine!

This is the back cover of our book


I am super excited to go and I know that we will have so much fun when we come back putting all of our great photos in our album!

I am on my way to Washington state for a great week of sightseeing and scrapbooking! This is my third year spending a weekend somewhere with the great people from Quick Quotes! Each year this company sets up scrapbooking weekends at various places across the united states and this time my friends and I chose to go to Washington state. I have been to Novi, Michigan and St. Louis Missouri to scrapbook with these great people and am I super excited to be able to do the scrapbooking weekend and a vacation all in one this time!



Quick Quotes is a scrapbooking company that is based out of the great state of Washington and they put on a FANTASTIC weekend of scrapbooking that includes an entire 12x12 scrapbook, a 16x22 decorated canvas, a variety of other great scrapbook pages and various other great projects where the proceeds go to Coats for Kids!

Poster Tidings Recipe Card

Here is a great idea for using the September stamp of the month, "Poster Tidings". I used this to make a great 6x6 recipe card for my 6x6 recipe book and since I used the "Fall" stamp, I used a recipe for pumpkin fluff.

This could also be used as a great addition to a scrapbook page featuring photos of you and your kids cooking the recipe that is used on the recipe card.  This would also make a great gift using this card on a 6x6 greeting card and having the gift be some or all of the ingredients for whatever recipe you choose.


So what are you waiting for, start making memories with your family and using this stamp set is a great start!

Don't forget this set is only available until September 30th so click HERE to see this and all the other great stamps, paper and embellishments that CTMH has to offer!

Hardware Scrapbook Swap

My group does swaps every month and this month our swap was a "Hardware Swap". This swap was designed to make us think out of the box and we had to use items found at a hardware store. The items that I found were: Washers, Screws and Dry Wall Tape and using those items here's what I came up with.

I found this layout on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect
 for the items I chose to use. 


 I used the dry wall tape and centered that over my B&T paper.
The great thing about using that is that it already had 
adhesive on the back!


Here I used a large screw and inked up the end and used it
as a stamp! I really didn't think that it would work
but it worked really well.
 
  
The washers I attached with ribbon and glue dots. I
didn't put a title on this layout so that each person could
customize it to their specific photos.

I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
