I used 3 paper bags for the album.I had never made one of these before. I was pretty easy to do and I think they are just so cute!! There isnt' a whole lot of cricut on it. This was the first time I had tried embossing those brads you can get from Wal-Mart. I also did some tin foil pan embossing via the cuttlebug for the words on one of the pages. I used some Walnut stain on some of the paper to give it an aged look. I used some vellum die cuts also. I stitched on some of the pages. You can click on the pictures and make them bigger if you would like to see more detail.
