Paper Bag Book

Today I'm sharing an inspirational paper bag book I created for a 
friend who is going through a difficult time in life.

This little book includes encouraging and uplifting 
Bible verses and stamped inspirational sayings.

I used the Hannah Scrap Pad from K & Company. 
The paper pack includes stickers, die cuts, tags, folders, frames and more.

I've uploaded all the verses used in this book.
You can access these FREE PRINTABLES by clicking here.

Supplies and tools:
Clipart: Free Scripture Printables from WAW
Dies: Circle & Scallop Circle Nestabilites (Spellbinders)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento)
Misc. Paper Bags, Twine, Mini flowers, pearls, lace, ribbon
Paper: Hannah Scrap Pad  (K & Company)
Stamps: Bible Journaling Stamps (American Crafts), Blue Ridge Impressions verse

What an adorable little book! I love how it is put together and the pockets! I finished a wedding album a few weeks ago and have started another wedding album (beach themed). They are fun to do!
