Tag Book Kit-How To Ideas-Tutorial

This is a sample of how the cover can be embellished using pattern paper and die cuts...I colored the tag page by rubbing an ink pad over the tag...then I tore the pattern paper tag in half and sponged ink along the torn edge...I like to use brown for this, to make it look more like the torn edge was old...I color all the white die cut embellishments with inks, either by rubbing the ink pad directly on the die cut, or using a sponge, or color duster or stipple brush, or even a waded up piece of plastic wrap...
I used a mini envy die cut as a pocket on this page...along with a photo holder die cut to accent the pocket
Here I have used some of the frame center cut outs as places for small photos or journaling, accented with a photo holder die cut, cut in half...small tags, and other small die cut shapes, make perfect embellishments...
Here is another example of a pocket made from another mini envy die cut, I also used the domino die cut as a mini foldover with the heart for the cover...The small scalloped squares on the tag are from a punched shape
The back cover can be used for an extra photo, or a place to add a sentiment, etc if you are giving this tag book as a gift...These books make wonderful ways to share those photos that aren't quite up to our big scrapbooks...my favorite thing is to get wallet sized photos made to use in these books...the wallet size photos work great in the two frame sizes in the kit, with very little cropping needed...For a more custom look use pattern papers that help enhance your photos...such as Christmas, birthday, summer, etc...
See the special offer on this tag book kit in the next posting...I will be sharing the books I am working on soon...

What a great booklet. I like the colours. I received the triangle and surprise mini box and mini punches. Thank you. I'm going to Ohio for the week, but when I get back I will have to get right on my box.
