Big Bitty Bag Album / Journal Tutorial

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and I have the tutorial that I promised you on my last Really Reasonable Ribbon Post.
Here is another look at the Journal I did using the Big Bitty Bags.  The tutorial will show you how to create the basic journal / mini album.  I used the Scor Tape in 1/4 inch size to but my journal together.
I usedthe new Jumbo leavesJuliet Lacegreen leavespink crochet lacechampagne ribboncotton candy baker's twinethree brown buttonsaqua shimmer satin and Big bitty bags to create my journal.
So...grab yourself your favorite beverage and a snack and get comfy while you watch my tutorial here.
I also created a few Gift Card holders, some for Birthdays and a few for Christmas.
I used the following goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon on the top one.  The pink crochet laceJuliet lacemoss green leavespink diagonal ribbon , Candi foam fix it pads (to elevate the sentiment, so I could tuck the ribbon under to tie the piece closed).
On the bottom one, I used  Champagne organzagold pom pom trim, another pink crochet lace as well as the moss green leaves and Juliet lace.  I even added a tiny button from the Latte collection and some cotton candy baker's twine.  The images on these are from Gecko Galz.
Here are the Christmas Gift Card Holders
I created a collage sheet which you can purchase in my Etsy, which will allow you to create both gift card holders and two tags.
On this holder I used the same moss leaves, Juliet lace, cotton candy baker's twine as above, but this time I tied it with the Moss green Gingham ribbon.
Here is the other gift card holder from the collage sheet. I decided to go "vertical" with this one.
On this one I used the same leaves, large pink crochet lace (most of it is hidden), cotton candy baker's twine and mocha button (love the flower shape)!
Here are the same gift card holders done another way (I did these on Sunday).  I used the Parrot green leaves and red diagonal ribbon on this one.
Another vertical one.  This one has the same as the one above, except I tied it with the Champagne organza.
And I decided since I had the time to do a tutorial on the gift card holders as well.  So today you are getting a Twofer....LOL
You can watch the Gift card holder tutorial here.
Hope you enjoy the videos and are inspired to create something fun using some of Bonnie's Bags, Ribbons, and Trims!
Thank you for visiting!!
