Paper Bag Album featuring My Mind's Eye and mostly Unity Stamps!

I am not one who usually stamps while creating layouts, so... I decided to start small and try my best to incorporate stamps in my first ever paper bag album! I had so much fun making this little album! It was a great project for the Memorial Day weekend.

I am just going to share these projects through my pictures. Take a look, if you like! :D

I would suggest working on one. I used a 6x6 paper pad which is the perfect size and amount of paper to create one of these!


Here is the cover. It is embossed with a Unity "Could I Be Any Cuter" stamp. I used several stamps from that kit, as you will see! he he!

Here is the inside. For the page on the left, I used Unity's "Could I Be Any Cuter" kit, and the page on the right I used American Crafts and Dear Lizzy stamp set and embossed the banner using American Crafts embossing powder. 

For these two pages, I was in the album where the bottom of the paper bag was showing, so I scrored the paper and created a "dual" page. You can see the inside portion just below this picture. For the page on the left, I used Unity's "Shine On" Collection. And for the page on the right, I used American Crafts "Sentiments" stamp collection, and repeated the image several times to make it look like a "field" of flowers, and I fussy cut that grass! That was a chore! And then you can see inside of the page on the left!

For the page on the left, I did not stamp any images, but I made the little ribbon flower with Glue Dots, I love Glue Dots! For the page on the left, I stamped and paper pieced Unity's "Could I Be Any Cuter" kit, again... This kit is perfect for spring or summer collections! 

For this double page layout, I stamped the left side using Unity's "Stitched Greetings" and paper pieced using some patterned paper. For the right side, I stamped and paper pieced more "CIBAC" stamps, and I drew the path of the butterfly! 
For this last page, I didn't stamp, but I wanted to use scraps of patterned paper and cardstock, and some cute twine!! 

I hope to get pictures in this paper bag album soon! Hope you enjoyed! 
Have a wonderful day!
