Another Paper Bag Album

Thank you so much for all the welcome backs! Really made my day :) !

I made another paper bag album after we got back from Nationals for a young 15 year old girl who is a friend of a family that we go to church with. Sadly, her momma passed away from breast cancer, leaving three children and a husband :'(. I wanted to make her something that she could put photos of her mom in and write special memories that she shared with her. Even though she's a teenager right now, it won't be many more years before she is grown, so I made this album with an older girl in mind. 

This wasn't completely made with Stampin' Up supplies. I used K&Company paper, all Stampin' Up! card stock and inks, and some Stampin' Up! dies, plus, I made few elements on my Sizzix eclips. The paint for the cover is Martha Stewart and the ribbon is... I have no idea :D. It's 1/2" double faced satin though.

The front cover- Cherish the Moments

Inside cover with pocket and tag

Pages 2 and 3. Between each page is a flap.

Pages 4 and 5.

Page 8 and back cover page

There are a total of eight pages, 17 pockets with inserts, and several smaller tags throughout the album. This album will hold up to (40) 4x6 photos. I also added a few small die cut envelopes for her to put little keepsakes into and several journaling blocks. With the album, I gave her a zip lock bag filled with additional die cuts, journaling blocks, tags, etc., and some adhesive. It was really nice to be able to use some of my stuff to bless someone and help them along in their journey of healing. I'm hoping I will get to see the finished album after she gets all her photos into it, but it's okay if I don't. It's her special place for keeping special memories of her momma in and I hope that it will be a blessing to her for many years to come. 

Blessings to you!

BEAUTIFUL,I'm sure she will treasure it. After checking my email this morning and seeing all your sweet comments, I just knew you had been on here and was hoping you had posted a project. So you were my first (and only) stop this morning - I have to work today.

As always thanks for sharing.
