Bags of Fun with my new Basicgrey Bittersweet papers

I have had Bags of fun this weekend making this 20 page Handbag shaped chipboard album.
The new Bittersweet papers from Basicgrey are sooo lovely, rich chocolates and pretty strawberry pinks and lovely classic pattens and plain distressed solid colours make them really yummy.
I cut the pages with a die that I designed myself , that cuts a square handbag , I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder to emboss some of the card pages and I used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch the pages and I made pockets for 2 of the pages for tags etc.
Embellishing them with all sorts of stash (This was the fun part ); prima flowers , Bo Bunny antique brads & clipz, doodlebug gems, May arts ribbons were just a few of the things I used .
Then I punched holes with the big bite enabling me to bind the book using binding rings and added more ribbon to finish it off.
I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Love Susie xx

Easter Bunny Business !!

Easter is a few months away yet but it won't be long before all those naughty yummy Chocolate Easter eggs are on the supermarket shelves!!! so to get you in the mood for Easter I thought you might like to see this Easter themed paper bag album I have made.
I used a 6"x6" paper bag album which I made with 3 brown paper bags , the papers I used are by Bo Bunny and so are the cardstock stickers, the die cuts are cut from custom made designer dies which I chalked and the ribbons are from May arts .
