i thought of sheila

For Stephenie's I Thought of You Swap, we were to send our partners vintage treasures that made us think of them. Sheila thought of me by sending me this package. :)

And I thought of Sheila by sending her this package. Sheila mentioned she decorated in the colors barn red, mustard yellow, and soldier blue, so I went with that color scheme.

Sheila blogged about what I sent her, too.
I had some fabric leftover from that paper bag album I made (and shared here); I used it for this project. I made Sheila a pocket organizer. See other pocket organizers I've made here.
I made Sheila a paper bag album scrapbook portfolio. I've made a few of these before.

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.

I also made a book using coin rolls.  I personalized the book by adding Sheila's blog name "Blessed and Distressed" as inspiration. I got the idea from my friend Jen.
I made a gift tag set, too. All the tags I used were bought from my friend Blanca.
I sent Sheila some vintage lace trim on a bingo card:
and ephemera: I also sent Sheila a whimsy jar with buttons and other embellishments.
