Tried a bit of a twist this time on a paper bag album--instead of the brown paper bags, this one uses two medium size gift bags with handles in a natural color. The bags are folded in half and the two bags are glued together forming a pocket in the middle AND still have the ususal paper bag opening on each side. Staying in the vintage theme of things, I started with a great two-sided paper in a vintage travel scene. I added a stamped compass in the middle and heat embossed it to create a shiny, slightly raised image. The images on the paper of the key, clock, bicycle, and butterflies are all rub-ons (my favorite way to embellish, btw!) Other cool embellishments came from various monthly kits from my friends over at Swirlydoos.com--they really find the greatest "extras"! Love the Paris postmark wood die-cut, vintage brads, and the black key! The title letters were inked and coated with "Glossy Accents" to make them "stand out".

I tried to make the "Jouney Album" look like a vintage suitcase and was quite happy with the result! TFL!
