The secret crafter saturday challenge is Recycling and the
Creative Inspirations challenge blog have set the 2nd challenge-Thrifty...reduce,reuse,recycle.Nothing new you have purchased.
I have used paper bags that you get from the gift shops{yes,i am a hoarder when it comes to paper},free magazine paper pack and ribbon from raks.
With help from the old iron for the creases in the bags,glue,foam pads and photos- my little sisters 30th a few years ago{wont say when or she,ll murder me}i made it all into a little bag book,my first attempt at this.The top of the paper bags have been left open for more photos and hidden journaling.
I have to say i never ever thought i would use such vibrant papers as i luv shabby papers but once i got going..loved them and will try more brights in the future.
The book my sister is reading was my first attempt at scrapbooking and as you can see from the pictures we couldn,t stop laughing at the memories.
