School's out for Summer

Welcome to the School's out for Summer Blog Hop.
I want to first thank Jessica  and Nancy for allowing me to be a part of this Hop.  


If you are coming from Jess then you are on the right Track and making your last stop here.  If  you just happened by and want to start at the beginning of the Hop please start with Jessica .  


Now for my project for this Hop.  I made a Paper Bag Mini Album titled Summer Fun.
it consist of 10 pages plus the front and back. It has 3 big pockets to add fun things like the ticket stubs to the Zoo or more picture.  All three of these pockets have a pull out to journal on or again add more pictures.   It has two small pockets on the inside as well. All the embellishments are hand made. I really loved making this little book.  I kept thinking about that first day of school when the teacher asked us to write about our summer vacation and viola' the pages were born lol.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. I would so love to read your comments on what you think of this little mini album.  It is also for Sale just email me for info.  Thanks and here it is. 

The book is made with a #10 Paper Bag.  It is larger than a normal lunch sack and measures approx. 6 1/2 x 6  


- Front Cover -
Cuts are from the Cartridge, "A Childs Year"

This page has a small pocket - the green check you see is the pull out.

The ice cream cones and ice cream  are a free  hand cut.
I popped the cones with pop dots.

The Popsicle's were a rectangle and I used a corner Punch to round the edges  and then did a free hand center dip
(pop dots used here also)  

- Page 5 -
The clouds are cut from Create a Critter and I used my gypsy to change the shape by stretching it  some.


- Page 6 -
The Sun and the Clouds are cut from Create a Critter and I just changed the size of the clouds to give a variety to it.
The Sun I just added Google Eyes to it to give it a little more character.
Clouds have been raised with pop dots.

  11. Love your mini album Linn! i love paper bag albums - have only made one myself but plan to do lots more! i love all the diecuts and free cuts you added - those popsicles look real enough to eat! That Child's Year cartridge is quckly making its way to the top of my wish list. i had thought that since my kids are teens and I have already scrapped their younger years that i did not need this cart but i am definitely wrong about that - I want it now! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful book :)
