Paper Bag Mini Album

If you visit my
 blog regularly, no doubt you know that I'm in love with Prima's Engraver collection. Here is another project I've made using Engraver plus two tiny paper bags...

No kidding... 
the base of this album is just two black 3.5" x 2" x 6.75" paper bags (I bought the Celebrate It brand from Michaels). A while back, Stephanie Miller announced on her blog that she would be making a super cute and easy mini album with Engraver March 29th on Live with Prima. I assembled all my "ingredients" and anxiously waited for the date. Stef seems to have an amazing amount of energy and puts it to good use pumping out one fabulous mini album after another. 

There are so many
places in this little mini to put photos or to journal... and you actually can add more wherever you want.

Photo spots.

More photo spots.

A tag pocket.

The back section
lifts up to reveal more pockets and space for photos... and the size is just perfect to tuck into your purse and pull out at a moments notice to reveal photos of your grandchildren (for those blessed) to unsuspecting friends.

I made this one for
my future daughter-in-law, and put in a couple photos to get her started.

Another pocket for 
journaling spots and space for a photo.

If you're interested
in making one of these, here are the complete instructions on Live with Prima .
