As I gear up for my Fall craft shows, I am completely mesmerized shopping for Fall and Halloween. I just love the colors of Fall. My favorite collection so far is Boo to You by My Mind's Eye. This is an adorable Halloween line using muted colors. The little monsters are just adorable!
Check them out at:
Also a bit non-traditional, I have found spider web place mats and table runners. Cut them up and use them as web accents on your crafts and/or scrapbook pages.
Check back for some pics of my completed projects:)
1. Start off with 3 paper bags. There are generally two sizes but I prefer the largers ones. Folded they will be approximately 6" x 6". Alternate the bags and fold in half. I use a 3-ring punch to punch the holes about 1/4" from the fold.
2. Theme: I've made bags celebrating Mom, Halloween, Birthdays, Weddings, Baby, Recipes--just about anything! They are also a great personalized album to give to a child to keep their own photos.
3. I adhere all of my background cardstock/paper first. I measure the size of the folded paper bags and crop my paper to those specifications and adhere. I then go through the "inside" pages and add embellishments, ribbon, quotes and photo mats. The front of the album I save for last and the back I only use cardstock.
4. Make use of the openings of the paper bags! I use them to tuck journaling tags, extra photo mats and recipe cards.

My name is Heather and I'm a working Mommy of three little ones. For the past few years, I've been able to release through paper crafting. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing. I am looking forward to sharing my ideas and life happenings with visitors to this site. Thanks for stopping by.
