On this page I added a insert that can be written on inside of both pages and on the opposite page I used the glitter, stamped the sentiment, ran a little banner that repeats let it snow and left the top of the oval open to put a pic in.

The Pink Elephant Challenge
The Pink Elephant Challenge today is to make something in your favorite Christmas colors. Mine is burgandy and creme. I made one of my favorite things a paperbag album that I will be giving to a friend. I took pics of several of the pages. This is a waterfall album. I tea dyed all my papers before starting. They look pretty white in the pics but they are definately a warm creamy color. I used burgandy paper from colorbox for much of it. I made pockets on many of the pages and there are lots of tags for journaling on or putting pics on. I used lots of gold and diamond dust glitter and sewed the pockets on with gold thread, I punched some snowflakes and the star for some added embelishments on the front. I punched out the little circles and then stamped the letters on with burgandy ink.

This is such a beauty. I love all the fibers you used!
I'd forgotten how much I love these paper bag albums, but this is just lovely with all the pretty details! I love all the fancy stitching on each page and the drop-down page for journaling and a photo! Beautiful work in stunning colors!
What a unique paper bag album Davi! I love the overall vintage look & all those pockets! :) TFS
Some of my favourite colors too! It looks like you put a lot into this album! So pretty!
