Stampers with An Attitude March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with An Attitude March Blog Hop. I bet you are wondering, just who are the Stampers with An Attitude?????   They are a Close to My Heart team of consultants lead by my awesome upline, Kimberly Moss.

Each month the Stampers with An Attitude Blog Hop focuses on a different theme. Our theme for March is focusing on the Penelope Paper collection or Boxes.  For this month's Blog Hop, I am following Karen Scott . So whether you arrived here from her hop or are just getting started, you are on the right track. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found at the bottom of this post. Thank you for stopping by and happy hopping

Here I have made a mini album using lunch size paper bags.

I think these are so cute!!

I just love making these little albums!!

I used six lunch bags to make this mini album and cut them at varying lengths.

Inside each bag is an insert made from cardstock to hold more photos or journaling. Also you can put memorabilia in the bags.

They make great gifts for kids and adults alike.

You can make one of these albums with any size paper bag. You can cut all the bags the same length rather than in varying lengths like I did this one. There is no end to the creativity you can achieve with these mini albums.

It is my hope that you enjoyed this post & that it gives you some inspiration. Should you decide to make one, I would love to see what you create.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Paws'ing for memories, crafting, and good times with family and friends.
