Mariposa Paper Bag Album

My sister-in-law loves flowers and rich colors like red and gold.  I crafted this paperbag album for her as a surprise birthday gift.  I used a little bit larger paper bag to allow for lots of pictures, journaling and deep pockets for all the "extras".  She loved it!!  I chose the gorgeous Mariposa richly embellised paper line from DCWV for this special gift.  Hard to go wrong when you start with quality basics.  My focus whenever I create is to compliment a photo or patterned paper, not to overwhelm my pages or layouts with embellishments.    

Another little trick: Instead of tossing those scraps into box for "another day", use those scraps  right away for a card or to decorate a gift bag or tag, keeps those scraps down to a minimum.
