Handmade Paper Bag Book

Hello there, I've been working on my project for 3 days and finally got it finished...this is one of the last page in it....as you can see that I have a pull-out pocket with a flower embellished circle tab and one of the few stamped images of flourishes

More pages with tabs that have pockets using the label punch from Stampin'Up!    Did you notice that I have side tabs as well as upper tabs for hidden pocket?

The pages with dotted pink are the only pages that I added some embossed black sentiments to them, here you see the lined page on the inner part of the pull-out tab page

The Front of my book.......gorgeous paper I found and the rose is idea is from a sister blogger and she got it from a video that I watched from here and I'm giving credit to Valita for her wonderful videos!       Tho one thing I did different was use decorative scallop scissors to cut my center scallop to add more dimension to the center of the flower.

Here's a close up of my rose the paper that I used was rather thick and kind of hard to mold but I got it all together........I hope you take the time to watch Valita's video using the Stampin'Up! punches....  I am also entering this to a challenge for The Crafty Pad

Thanks for coming by for a look see, I so enjoying hearing from you!
