Retro Christmas

Hello friends!
Are you thinking about Christmas yet?
I am! I love all styles of Christmas, but my favorite is retro! So, I created a paper bag album using fun new retro scrapbook paper.




This album has a mixture of paper by Reminisce, Cosmo Cricket and Jenni Bowlin.
This cute paper on the first page is from the Reminisce collection. It's so cute!




Most from these pages are from Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Claus line.
It has a fun retro fell to it too!




This album was so much fun to make, but it was so hard to cut the pretty papers!
They really were lines that I could just hoard in my paper stash just to look at!




Maybe I should go get some more?




If you have never tried making a paper bag album, I highly recommend it! They are so fun and easy to make. I love the sense of fulfillment I get when I complete a whole album.

Wishing you a wonderful day, Lindsey

Hi Ladies,

Beautiful job Lindsey. I bought all those papers about a month and a half ago, and like you, I don't want to cut into them either. I, however, did buy extra's....I got 4 of each sheet so that I could keep some in a stash to savor over time.

Hugs,
Meri

Oh gosh, Lindsey! This is just adorable!!! They come up with the sweetest lines of paper, don't they?! Love what you've done with it, of course--always do!

Wishing you both the most wonderful weekend, dear friend...

Oh this is so sweet. I am going to have to find those papers. I so hate not having a local scrapbooking store and Ac Moore, Micheals, and Hobby Lobby never get the new lines in at Christmas!!
of to ebay I go!!
Hugs,

LOL! I know exactly what you mean about hating to cut into pretty papers! I feel the same way! But you certainly did a beautiful job on this
project. It is eye candy from front to back!

Lindsey, I enjoy looking at your beautiful books. I really like the retro Santa. It looks like the one on Christmas cards that my grandmother used to send. You do a fantastic job putting these together.------Shannon

Dear Agravette,
The Santa image comes from Reminisce's new Dear Santa line. It's from a sheet called Santa Collage.
