CONTEST !!

Last summer I created this paper bag album for a class I was to teach!
I ended up not being able to teach the class and have 8 kits all
ready to go. Enter your name in the comments section for this post and
on Monday the 27th I'll do a random drawing to pick winners of the kits.
Good Luck!

Cover- You'll have to get creative and find a solution for the 6 in 2006 unless you are as far behind in your scrapping as I am and are just now doing 2006 pictures!

The white paint pens used for the doodling isn't included in the kit..but, can be purchased at any Arts & Crafts store.

The metal looking star accents were made by covering chipboard with silver duct tape and then cutting out the hearts with a die cutting system. To give them the stained glass effect I added doodles to them using permanent markers. (markers not included)

The circles were made by dipping pieces of PVC pipe into acrylic paint and then using them as you would a "stamp". PVC pipe is included in the kit...paint is not.

These are the pull-out pages that slide into the open ends of the paper bags.

I just ran across you blog today, lucky me!!! Actually Lori McDonald sent your link to the scout knife. I LOVE your site, I'm a collector of treasures myself. I'm just not quite as good at making use of the items. I'm bookmarking your blog for inspiration Thanks! I'd love to be added to your contest.

Lori said...

Wait, is this from the Michael's nonsense? :)

You know I'm more than willing to take one off your hands. If I'm lucky and feeling charitable maybe I'll give it to my sister and she can put some baby photos in it (her daughter was born in 2006.)

I was browsing your blog again and am still loving that vintage glitter you picked up at a roadside stand a while back. Have you used it yet? If so, post the photo!!

I found your blog through a link on Lori McDonald's blog, which I don't remember how I found hers. I love to read crafty blogs to get motivation and inspiration!

Thanks for the great giveaways!

Alice said...

I'm jealous! Not only of your creativity, but our Goodwill charges $1.00 for hardback books and $0.50 for paperback. Have to admit I'm just getting started with scrapping so keep up the good work with your helpful hints. Should I win, I'm sure this project would be very beneficial in getting me started.

O.K. Lori sent us over so if you get overwhelmed with post', it's Lori's fault. LOL
I'm am not a lucky person when it comes to contest, (family, hubby, kids, dogs and grand daughters, is where all my luck is used up)
So, when I don't win, would you show us how to make the little book that you did.
I have never really gotten into the "Paper bag" albums,because, well, because they always looked like a paper bag.
Yours don't and I would love to know the secret if you are willing to share.
Thanks for this, and love, your blog.
(As long as I am not drinking anything at the time of reading.) You post' don't come with a "spew alert."
