I made a personal history mini album, working out a new way to join the bags and get some extra flaps and folding pockets. I love how sturdy something as ephemeral as a paper sack becomes once it is laminated with papers and cardstocks.

Letting the BGE get tacky on metal embellishments -
time to scrub cutting board with some baby wipes!
I'm hoping to demo this kind of thing at CHA 2012 as part of the big cross promotion ScraPerfect is creating with a bunch of other cool tool companies. I'm thinking of stepping into the modern world and making a How To video for You Tube. Reportedly, You Tube is now the second biggest search engine after Google.
Meanwhile, you can see other photos (more of my baby pics) of the finished project on the ScraPerfect blog.
