My First Christmas Project This Year!

Okay, I know Christmas is more than three months away but someone told me today that it is only 14 Fridays!  Oops, better get started on preparations! lol!

Here is my second attempt at the Vertical Paper Bag Mini from Paper Phenomenon.  The first one is here.

Lots of great BoBunny and Simple Stories Christmas paper here!  I used a variety of techniques to make the decorating more interesting and challenging.  I have been mostly using the wonderful designer papers in my mini-album creations, but this time decided to add  "card making" techniques like pressure embossing, glitter heat embossing, paper piecing, and die flower making.

Generous front and back pockets for memorabilia.

I used three kinds of ribbon and several rubber stamps.

Two kinds of dry embossing enhanced with Stickles.

I added Glitter pen to this stamp.

I added Ink Gold - Red to the brick wall embossing.

Stamps, paper piecing, ribbon, and Stickles, oh my!

Two of the 12 tags in this album

This is such a great tutorial and I have really enjoyed making it now for the second time.  It is a super easy way to get a jump on your Christmas gifts this year.
