Santa Paper Bag Album

This is a paper bag album I made last year. I finished out some of the pages that just weren't working for me.

On the cover I just changed to a bigger ribbon on the tags. I still like what I did before. You might see some small changes in style.

I dressed this page up with more layers on the paper strip, added some flourishes, and that yummy flower. If I could do it over again I might emboss the cardstock. Alas, my glue was not letting go. ;)

This was the only page that had to be completely redone. You ever have one of those, what was I thinking moments? Well, I glued over one. Haha. This is on eBay if you want to see more pics.

Is everyone else playing with Christmas crafts now? I have some altered projects I want to do as decorations around my house. I used to put my decorations up on my birthday (Nov. 29th), then the day after Thanksgiving, but now I have a hankering to get all mine out now. Is it too early? :) What if I promise not to play Christmas music yet?

Happy Scrapping! Dee2

I have the same problem Dee Dee! I usually wait til after Thanksgiving too, but I sure have the hankering to pull it all out now :)

Gorgeous album as usual! I thought I saw a little bit of a style difference... I love the B&W title and the little "to be jolly" is a perfect accent!

This album is another fab creation! I hope to have time to do some christmas decoration this year - and that my daughter and my cat won`t destroy it;)

DeeDee, to me, its never too early for Christmas! I love this album. I had to check back and forth here because I actually made a paper bag album and my hats off to you for doing such a fabulous job each time - these are truly unbelievable! The time you put in to make it so crafty and creative is really a coup. Whew...Beautiful!

Hi Dee Dee, well, I'm just now learning about those laser mice. My husband has been holding out on me! LOL And no, it's not too early for Christmas, I'm having a really hard time sticking to turkeys right now. I always love hearing from you!
Hugs, Debra
