Holly Jolly Blog Hop

Hi Everyone... Welcome to the Holly Jolly Blog Hop. This hop is hosted by Kristen of Fantabulously Pink. We have a full line-up of talented paper crafters. Make sure you visit everyone's blog for lots of fun.  If you arrived from Christine's site site, you're in the right place.

For my project I made a Matchbook Paperbag Mini Album. It is a fun and easy project to put together. It can be done in a few hours and it will look like you spent a great deal of time on it. I got the inspiration from Kathy Orta. she made one last year and I had bought the paper pack. I had too many projects to do then, however I found the time this year.

The cover of the album resembles a book of matches. Inside are 6 pages made out of the paperbags from Michaels. Inside each page is a pocket on the top which holds a large tag. you can use any page or tag to add photos or journaling.


Recollections Kraft Paper
Celebrate It Paper Bags
Pattern Patter -- K & Co.

Here is the complete line up in case you get lost along the way.

Ken’s Kreations
Darcy Beeler

Halloween Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Halloween Blog Hop. If you are just visiting, please stay and join us today. This is one of my most favorite holidays and I wanted to do a hop with some great ladies who have agreed to be a part of the hop. They are very talented so make sure to stop by their site and see what they have created.

For today's project, I created a pocket page Halloween Mini Album. This is a super easy album to make and you can make it as elaborate as you want. The person I'm giving it to doesn't really like too many embellishments so I kept it super simple.

This book has 6 pages plus front and back cover. 

There are 12 mats for photos or journaling. These
tuck inside the pages.

There are also 6 larger mats for photos and journaling that
tuck in the top of the pages.
