You should have arrived here from the awesome
Brenda's Stamping Corner- http://www.brendasstampingcorner.blogspot.com/,
but if you've stumbled upon my blog from somewhere else, you'll want to start at the beginning: http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com/.
After you've checked out my blog, please subscribe or click follow to be entered in my drawing for some awesome BLOG CANDY. I'm giving away a collection of color-coordinated Stampin' Up! products, designed to help you with all your card-making and scrapbooking projects. Also, leave a comment on THIS post to be eligible for a special VC Rocks BLOG HOP prize!
So...my blog hop project for you this weekend is a paper bag album. You've probably seen them before (this particular version came from Candace Anderson), but I thought it would be a cute end-of-the-school-year gift for my oldest daughter who is 12. She's all about friends and social activity, plus this is her first year of middle school, so what better than her own little place to collect all her memories?
Here are some pictures: sorry for the poor quality...between the lighting and my older-than-dirt camera, things just weren't working out for me today!
This album has 10 pages where she can put pictures, journaling, or whatever she likes. Plus it also has 3 slide-out pages (last photo) with more photo mattes on the front and back of each-essentially, 6 more pages for memory keeping!
I used a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit to complete this project because I wanted it to suit my daughter's particular style, but there are many Simply Scrappin' Kits available in a variety of themes, with new ones surely coming in the new catalog in July!
Let me know what you think...and don't forget to leave me a comment! Winner will be drawn by random.org on Monday, May 17!
OK...you're next stop on the hop is right here: http://www.stampinldyglfr62.blogspot.com/
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

I usually try to make several of the cards or projects featured in the catalogs if for no other reason but to show my customers that those projects CAN in fact be completed by a regular person like you or I. I had someone ask me once "Why do they show such complicated samples that only professional Stampin' Up! gurus could make? I wanna see some stuff REAL people can do!"
Another Summer Mini Catalog CASE-VERY EASY TO DO! I thought this card might be tricky to get the measurements right because it's a different size than I normally make, but it was quite possibly the easiest card I've ever made.
Stamps: Kind and Caring Thoughts
Paper: Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Ruby Red
Ink: VersaMark, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie Marker
Accessories: Crop a Dile and grommets, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon
The next card I have for you is one I whipped up today for the CropStop National Scrapbooking Day BlogHop Challenge. If you'd like to participate, hop on over to http://www.cropstop.com/ .
These are my (relatively) new paper trolleys. I ordered them from my local craft store while they were on sale. I have 6 of them, which gives me 60 drawers that hold 8 1/2 x 11 materials. That's plenty of space for all my Stampin' Up! colored cardstock, plus a few extra drawers which I use to store things like printed templates and tutorials, my Stampin' Success magazines, and past catalogs that I use for inspiration. There's also space on top for things...but I haven't decided for sure what I'm going to keep up there yet.
