I've been busy lately, taking card making classes to learn new techniques and I'm really excited with all the things I've learned so far, I cannot wait to post tutorials.
I've also been spending more time with my Crafty Friends and wait 'till you see what they've come up with. Misty Grosse, my most awesomest and creative crafty friend, got all the girls together last Sunday for a potluck and she showed us how to make a recipe paper bag album inspired by Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomenon. She makes the most awesome albums out of ordinary paper bags. I'm not kidding when I say AWESOME!!! --- thou wilt not believe thy eyes!!
Here's the link of her tutorial that shows you exactly how to make this fabulous album:
Kathy Orta Paper Bag Tutorial
Misty re-created this album to hold recipes in a Hawaiian theme and then taught us all how to make it. It can hold at least 50 recipes, if not more. It's got pockets EVERYWHERE!
here's the front:
and the inside pages, every single page has a pocket:
funny how I didn't notice the sandal all wonky when I took the picture
Since it was also a pot luck, we all brought a dish to share with everyone. Robbie, one of the ladies, made this delicious turkey salad. You have got to make this for yourself, super delicious!!
look at the "bite", how cute is that! it was done with a scallop paper punch
besides all these little pockets everywhere, you can store recipes inside the paper bags
I just love this little album, can't wait to make some more. At first I was going to give it to my sister (I hope she doesn't read this) but then I decided to keep it pour moi, para mi, for me. Wouldn't they be cool Christmas gifts??? and I definitely have to make one for Halloween!!
Hope you're having a cool Summer!!
