Off to see a Scrapbook Convention!

It is that time again...time for Jackie and I to hit the road and go to the Creative Keepsakes Convention in Seattle!!  I made a mini album to commemorate the event, and I wanted to share it with you!

 I got the tutorial off of YouTube, from My Sisters Scrapper.   It's called a "Vertical Paper Bag" mini album, and it is awesome!!
 I put a punch of charms on the spine, a lot of them given to me by my BFF, Jackie!  They were just waiting for the perfect project, and this was it.  I also added (later) a penny, from 2013, to the charm assembly. I thought it was fitting for this book.
 The papers are by DCWV, called Vintage Collector.  I used flowers and leaves by Recollections, Prima, Petaloo, Bo Bunny and Shabby Chic.
 I added a few kraft paper pockets by Paper accents, the tags are by Inkssentials.
 I used buttons by Bazzill, and BLink by Zva Creative, Recollections, and K and Company.
 I am not showing it, but the pages on the right actually flip open to reveal two more pages of space for photos.  This teal envelope is by Recollections.  It has mats inside for photo use.
 I love how this book came together.  There are so many pockets to put things.  The bags are open at the top, for more tags.
 I used the bobby pin by Crate Paper to hold this tag flap closed.
The last page is a waterfall page for lots more space.  All through the book I also used word/phrase stickers by My Minds Eye.

I hope you check out her tutorials on how to make this project.  It was soooo much fun to do, and I know I will be making more.

Now, off to the convention to collect photos, ephemera, and most importantly, memories to fill this book.

Stay crafty, my friends!

Have a fantastic time at the convention. My daughter and I went to Lancaster in July and as always it was a blast. Though the vendor faire has gotten so small and all the big companies have disappeared. Love you album.
