"Paper Bag Mini Album" Project (before)

For creative fun, I thought I'd do a quick share of what I have planned for my next mini!!

still trying to use up some of my stuff from my 'left-overs scrap' bin and I LOVE doing paper bag albums so that's what I'm doing! I went through my tags first and found the funkiest vintage lady! I'm using this tag as my inspiration for my mini... I'm not sure how or what the mini is going to end up looking like!??? .. Anyways, I got my 6 paper bags, glue sticks, scissors, papers, tags, ribbons, left-over scraps and I'm ready to begin!

AND.. FYI.. If it turns out ok... I think I will giving it away as 'blog candy' :) but only if I like how it turns out! hee don't want to make UGLY BLOG CANDY happen! LOL

  5. I usually inspired by events in my life, events that I don't want to lose the memory of, and of course my wonderful family!
    I had to laugh out loud when I saw your pink lady, as a child growing up in Phx some of my fondest childhood memories was going camping in the summer up in the white mountains, to escape the heat!! I swear that pink lady is my Aunt Pearl!! ♥ her!!!
    Thanks for sharing and as alway have fun creating!!

  7. Hey, I can not wait to see how it turns out!!! You are super talented im sure it will turn out beautiful!! The $7 paper pack is a series i am doing...... I will take 1 paper pack and make layouts cards and other projects.... the idea is to inspire people to know that you don't need all your tools and all your goodies to make a great page or card. I hope you like all my up coming projects!

  8. Hi Steff! Great looking product. You are so talented and wont have a problem making an amazing book! My inspiration has been the vibrant colors of the trees and mountains I enjoy as I drive to work in the early morning. The elevation increases quite a bit, so I am blessed with an amazing show of dark greens and purple mountains.

  9. Steph, Inspire me, Inspire me, HE HE HE you always do :-) I can't wait to see,

  10. When I'm shopping I love to look at the Home Design Books they always have cool trendy Color Pallets!
