VC Rocks BLOG HOP!!

HEY EVERYONE! Welcome to the first VC Rocks blog hop of the season!!


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!

  9. Love this - she will be so happy with this album! I have not made a paper bag album or card for a few years, so time to get busy again - I have lots of older scrappin' kits that I could use for this.
