Paper Bag Christmas Albums

Well im back and first thanks for all the lovely messages of support youve all sent truly appreciate it.Dad is doing so so we are still waitng on results and he's having to go back for bloods regularly .The shadow on the lung tests were also waitng for and the heart echo to see whats going on.He's got strict instructions to take it easy as still very breathless but now home.So im ringing him daily to make sure hes taken his tablets!

Anyway now im back time to catch up on some crafting time ive had 6 orders for my paper bag albums the christmas ones and one baby girl .Which i shall show you once camera has charged so please pop back to view them.I have only one more to amke for 22nd Nov before the customer goes away and needs it.This is the first one i made .I know some of you dont know how these albums are made but they are simple.

First you start off with the big american lunch bags.3 Bags will make an album of 6 pages including front and back.

I then press them and fold so it looks like a book when im happy i then sew down the centre.Then use my big bite to punch relevant holes into the front.
Then the worlds your oyster.Ive made many over my time in crafting and this one is christmas but ive done babys first christmas,wedding ,baby,16th,40th birthdays and 25th &golden wedding album.So they can be used for any type of occassion.Now the albums ive made are acid free so the photos dont discolour over time.I hope you enjoy looking at my album.Any questions please ask or instructions happy to help.I also take orders for any occassion.
Christmas 2011

The above piccy is the front cover

Pages 2 &3 with secret pocket and additional cards for photos or journalling

I love this vinatge look double page .In between these two pages theres a pocket which holds more extra cards decorated for photos or more journalling

The night before Chrsitmas page room for photos and also secret pocket with tags and to hold ticket from santa.

sorry piccy not good the light terrible this am so dark and damp right dismal day.Here ive done some stamping and added the tildas with 3d pads to the frame on left side .Right hand page is for family photo.This is custom built with requirements for customer

Here on the left hand page i have made an album so when you lift the snowman page up it all folds out you can see how big it goes in the following pages below.

Thats the first one i shall be back tomorrow or later with the Baby Girl Album and my Chrsitmas album ive just finished this moring.This album is 8x8 but the bags do come in 6x6 and 4x4 .I like to use the larger ones for occassions.The 4x4 are nice for children as keepsakes.
