The paper bag mini album - so far

Hi! Since I found Kathy on YouTube and USTREAM I've become addicted to her creative projects. The current project is a paper bag mini album (with a difference!). I've never seen a paper bag mini put together like this so I just had to make it! Not only does Kathy show us how to make the album, she also shows us the embellishing process too.

I really wanted to make the black paper bag mini album using the Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper collection, but I am unable to get the black paper bags anywhere here in Australia. So...I opted to go with the plain brown paper bags, using the K & Company Wild Saffron paper collection.

Well, the mini's not finished yet but I thought I'd show what I've done up to now. Let me know what you think :)

  1. I never liked that paper line...but seeing it in that mini...I wonder if I can find it somewhere! lol....nice work..I am following along with Kathy's Project as well. but I am using the LOVERLY pack by g.c.d (I got it at BigLots for 4.99)

  2. Hi Wynn
    I think any paper line would look good with this mini - it's awesome! I've loved Wild Saffron since it came out - it took me quite a while to be able to have someone from the US get it for me though. I so wish we could get all those beautiful papers easily AND cheap!!! Can't wait to see what your mini looks like with the LOVERLY paper :) - what a bargain! $4.99! Sooooooooooo jealous. Anyway, I'm off to see if Kathy's posted another episode of this mini.
    Thanks for your comments :)
    Take care

  3. Beautiful album Jen! I'd love to recreate this design of Kathy's as well, which Ustream/ youtube title series is it? Thanks so much!
