Flashback.... Paperbag album

Some of you will recognize this album from when I posted it on the cricut forum. It's made from white paper lunchbags. I look back on this and wonder how I ever created something so detailed with out using DS. LOL

Aaaah... Just a quick walk down memory lane.... Lots of pics on this post. Not lots of commentary.
Just Cricut (baby bug), George and Base Camp

And.... If I can pass a single lesson on to you that I learned from this project should you decide to make one... DON'T do as many pages as I did. I will never make a bag album with this many pages again.

Q: What paper did you use?
A: The paper came in a kit by Creative Imaginations called "Dena"

  1. Wow, cute mini album. I saw something similar like that before using brown paper bags. But white paper bags is definitely a lot better. Another thing added to my creation to do list. Thanks for the inspiration.

  15. I've seen the brown paper bag ones but haven't seen the white paper bags. How sweet! I want to make one. We are expecting twin Grandchildren and I'm thinking this would be a great book for the new babies - with ALL those pages. You can never have too many baby pictures. Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. Hi Jen,
    This is a great project. I've seen bag books in person and think that I'd like to try one ... haven't yet but if I get to it I've bookmarked yours for inspiration. How many hours of each day are you creating? :) Thanks for file the other day.
