I wanted to make something for Sharon's birthday. She's such a lovely, kind-hearted person and she's been a good friend to me over the last few years - even though I've actually only met her once - isn't the on-line crafting community wonderful?
Anyway, I wanted to say "Happy Birthday" and also "Thank You" to her for always being just an email away - I'm very thankful that I have a friend as trustworthy and reliable as Sharon, and I hope she knows it!
So what could I make for her?
I'd got the Bubbly Funk June Kit for making a clever "Travel Keepsakes" Album and as I alsobought the Add-On Extra bit I had enough paperbags to make the album (well, I might get round to it one day, you know....) and still have some spares, so I decided to have a bash at my first paperbag type book.
Actually these bags aren't the gusseted sort they seem to use for paperbag books, they're just regular ordinary ones so this is a "KathysWaffle" version of a paperbag book!
I just folded the bags in half and aranged them like they tell you to do, but there aren't the "hidden" flaps that you get with bags with gussets.
I used Basic Grey "Blush", "Pheobe" and "Perhaps" papers throughout, plus various colours of Bazzill card. As well as the big pockets made by the bag openings I added a few tag pockets too
I'm going to show the photos in two lots as even with just 3 bags you get 12 pages, so it would be a long post - I've used the small size setting for the photos so you can click for a bigger version if you want to.
So if you want to catch up on the rest of the book, tune in tomorrow for the second installment!
