Random Memories Tutorial- Tim Holtz Lost and Found

Random Memory Paper Bag album Using Tim Holtz Lost and Found papers. This is a completely different take on the paperbag album. It is updated and has a lot of room for full-size picutres and Journalling. See Video below if you want to see what the paper bag look like assembled

Check my Shop for tutorials.


  1. wish I had found this when you originally did this! I have done 1 so far doing some of the inserts to give as a baby album to new parents. I now am going to make one using the Tim Holtz papers and try to do all the neat pocket inserts you have done. I just love this album. You are so talented and inspirational.

  2. Kathy, I wish I would have found you earlier, but I was searching for Tim Holtz paper projects because I had the pad and I came across your site.This is the best mini I have even seen! WELL…. I just had to make this mini-album even though I never did a mini before, I fell in love with this. I loved listening to you on the videos, you gave great detailed instructions and very entertaining through the non-instructional parts. (I felt you were my best friend for days!) I cannot wait to try another grunge mini. I am watching your blog daily, because I don’t want to miss out on another one of your tutuorials. Everything was perfect, still need to buy a few things and I changed some things around if I had certain supplies I had, but basically the album is almost like yours. Plus I ran out of paper because I had used some sheets from the TH tablet. Love all your different pocket ideas too! I could rant and rave all day about this project!!!

  3. I think i must have read wrong..just the kit isn’t avail anymore? I just ordered the tutorial and template.

  4. Is there any way just to get the tutorial and measurements? I don’t mind purchasing the supplies on my own since your pre-order for kits is closed now.

  5. Kathy–I just ordered the Tutorial and Template via PayPal…is this a download? Can you send via email? I hope so…I want to finish my project this weekend….I SO LOVE THIS PROJECT….I started with your you tube videos, but want the tutorial now to make more of these in the future…Please let me know if you can email the files…name is Donna Renee Arrington…Smooches!

  6. I am so disappointed that I found your site now and I am too late to order the kit. On the bright side at least I found your site. I do hope you will offer the kits someday again.I am dying to make this. (I can’t find a lot of Tim’s stuff local.)

  7. Precious Kathy,
    I’m so excited that I can order the written instructions for some of your albums now. I love to work on your minis at our mountain cabin where a feeble Internet connection makes it impossible for me to go back and forth and watch your videos over and over. I just ordered your Random Memories instructions–can’t wait to finish up my album.

  8. Kathy, I ordered the tutorial and templates. Can’t wait to get started – I have a collection on Tim’s stuff I can use.

    The ning site: http://paperphenomenon.ning.com. It is is free to join. It is a site to share our crafts/inspirations and more. you should check it out.

  11. Kathy, yes my son in law’s name is Roy. What is Ning? You said you will keep us posted on that about the progress of the book but I cannot figure out what that is.


  12. I could order only the tutorial with templates and paid by paypal. THis was the 21st. How will I get this? Is it downloadable? I wish I could have afforded the kit but I’m on medical leave for next 2 months so $$ is tight. Will make with what I have on hand. Won’t be a great as yours. Thanks for the inspirations!

  13. LOL, Ms. Kathy! By the looks of all these comments, you are busier than you had planned! Try to relax!

  14. Hi Cindy– I think you were my last order before I closed it? Is his name Roy?

  15. Nancy– I would need to know what is your paypal address? And I havent’ received and email from a Nancy. email me at kathy_orta@yahoo.com let me knwo you are the lady that left the comment on my blog. I get many many email that way I will know. Thanks

  16. I know I am late but I hope I got my order in before the ending time. I could not afford it but my son in law got it for me.I cannot wait to try this book, it looks awesome. Thanks for doing this.

  17. Kathy, I ordered a kit, but don’t know if you got the order. I have also emailed a couple of different ways as well as left comment with no answers. I hate to ask this on the blog, but did you get my order and if you did could you email after you get all the orders together and ready to send out so I know it’s coming. Thank you so very much for your talent and time and sharing your creativeness with us your loyal followers.

  18. Do you have the gypsy file for the envelope you used in the album to hold the tag? I believe you mentioned it in your video number 3.

  19. Paper– not sure what you mean?

  20. Your so awesome. I love your creations. Do you offer discounted crafts?

  21. Please count the grommets… I believe you used some after the clock page to close an insert. I have stock in grommets and want to make sure you order lots. FAB project and kit.

  22. I have tried to purchase the kit and my pay pal has reached my spending; I don’t want to miss this kitm please, please, please give another pay method. I would like the entire kit.
