Christmas Paper Bag Book

I'm terrible at remembering to take photographs over the festive period, so this year I have created a paper bag album especially! The pages are all ready for my photographs and I can slip my Panto tickets and gift tags from the children into the pockets...
The album is very easily made using block bottom paper bags, simply stick the bottoms of the bags together and then embellish with papers, ribbons and buttons.
The photographs are to be the main features of the album, so I have stamped onto luggage labels and used punches, buttons and ribbons to simply embellish my pages.

I have thought about the photographs I would like to include...I just need to remember to take them and complete the album after the festive period!

Thanks for popping by

Garage Days Scrapbook Page

I couldn't wait to use the new Kaisercraft Garage Days scrapbook papers...they are perfect for the special men in your life!
I cut 2 different sized circles and distressed the edges to give a more worn look, the co-ordinating papers are perfect for adding sentiments, and I love that even the strip at the bottom of the page is useful!

I'm currently exploring using paint on my layouts and was very pleased with this effect using bubble easy and effective.

A kaisercraft sentiment was perfect for the page and as always I couldn't resist drawing stitching around the elements!

I stamped the tags using a Kaisercraft background stamp. Two were stamped using versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, before applying blue ink. The other was stamped with blue ink and finished with a kaisercraft rub on. Twine was tied around the page and finished with a gorgeous metal button.
