The paper bag album I created as part of Nancy Maxwell James' "14 Hearts" was my first.  I have a genetic disposition to avoid doing what everyone else is doing at the time they are doing it..so never fell in love with them until now LOL

My friend Gayle has just had her first grand, a girl!  This small album (I used 3 bags) is a place for her to keep mementos of her trip to LA to meet Grace for the first time, tuck in a few snaps and journal her thoughts.


  1. Its a gorgeous book Sandi and am sure your friend will adore it. Happy Easter, Annette x


  2. A beautiful present for little Grace! Valerie
    Happy Easter to you!

  3. Very sweet and thoughtful album. I think I have some of that DNA of not wanting to do the current popular trend. I am thinking of making a paper bag album for an upcoming event. Happy Hopping...

  4. Sandi this is adorable! You did such a great job on it! If you're enjoying making them and would like to join a swap, we are hosting a mini album swap at the CDAC. Come on over and take a peak and see if you'd like to join us! We'd love to have you! The deadline for sign up is today so hurry on over.

  5. Sandi this is just gorgeous and a great way to store keepsakes!! I've never made a paperbag book - I really should try it!!

  6. Beautiful little album. I've done one, really need to do another. This inspires me. As you can see, I'm getting around to all your blogs....fun.
