Altered Scrap Book Class

My last Altered Scrap Book Class was held on July 19, 2008. We made a 12 page paper bag album. This book is much bigger than most of the projects that we do, and the biggest paper bag album that I have ever made. These are always so much fun to make, and very easy to make. Here are the pictures of this month's projects.

This is the first page of the album. We used Spring Song as our stamp set.

Here are the second and third pages in the album. This album has a total of 6 inserts to use for journaling or potential spots for photos.

This is a picture of the second insert. I actually forgot to take a picture of the first insert, which lays inside the bottom fold of the bag. (It is the insert in the 2nd picture with the green tag.)

The fourth page was designed just for a small photo or a little pause for journaling. The fifth page I decided to just have an element. I tried to mirror the pages with the colors that were used.

The sixth and seventh pages kind of resemble the second and third pages. These two pages include more inserts, which I really love!

Here are the two inserts that are part of the sixth and seventh pages.

This is a picture of the eighth and ninth pages. I decided to design these pages to leave a lot of room for pictures and journaling.

This group of pages has a simple insert.


The tenth and eleventh pages bring in a design element from the first couple of pages. This page also includes the last insert of this project.

Our last insert actually has a saying stamped on the page. Throughout the album I tried to keep the sayings out so that each customer could personalize each album to their own needs. For this insert I just couldn't resist.

And, finally, our last page. Instead of leaving the page blank I decided to add a few pieces of cardstock to help make this album last.

This album did take about 3 hours to complete, once all the cardstock was cut. This is a little bit longer than my classes normally take but this was a larger project.
