This paper bag album uses the trees from A Walk in the Woods. It was my example for the girls in my Learners for Life group. They made paper album scrap books as our Tuesday night project. They loved this project. They especially loved the stamping. It was their first experience stamping.


I stamped the two side trees first, then I masked them and stamped the 3 tree. I then did the ink spray smash technique. After the paper dried, I stamped the trees again. I really like how this card turned out.




I love cardinals. I saw one just this morning in the tree by my house. I love their bright red feathers as well as their melodic call.
