shabby chic paper bag scrapbook album

When I was really into the shabby chic craze, I made this paper bag album. I used brown lunch bags folded in half and stitched together for the base of this album. (There are many ways to bind a paper bag album).
I used primarily pink, rose, patterned paper; a vintage book for its rose sketches and vintage greeting cards for their rose images; charms; paper clips; playing cards; buttons; vintage photographs (reproductions); book pages; beads | beaded trim; silk flowers; coffee stained tags; and various fibers (yarn).

The gorgeous photo charms in this book were made by Dawn at Tomorrow's Unknown.
See more of my paper bag albums here. If you're interested in making your own paper bag album, I have tutorials here and here.


  1. I LOVE your style of scrapbooking. So beautiful. I posted another comment under your post with the buttons thinking I was commenting on these pink, beautiful collages, so if you read my comment about victorian stuff and it doesn't make sense just apply it to this post.

  2. What a beautiful album! I just love your romantic style!
