Tag Book Art

I just love making tag books to use to display photos in...I will add photos from a day trip with the kids to this one...for now, I have the covers finished and the inside pages ready to work on...
I used chipboard tags for the covers and cardstock pages, I cut 4 textweight tags to stamp and cover the chipboard with...I used Ranger Distress inks to color the white cardstock and textweight paper before stamping...
I stamped each of the textweight tags for the covers, then glued each onto either side of the chipboard tags...Notice, how just dragging the ink pads across the tags gives you a faux fabric texture effect...I like that as a background to stamp on...I used Ranger Adirondack inks to stamp the beautiful Innovative Stamp Creations images you can see these and all of Betsy's store at http://www.innovativestampcreations.com
I used Butterscotch Adirondack ink to sponge the edges of each tag...Butterscotch is one of my favorite ink colors and I use it regularly...This pad is over 10 years old and all I do it reink when needed...
I added a closure and some fibers for added interest...I will add my photos and some other stamped images and verses later...

I love these tags... they are so beautiful I had to go view the stamp company images with the link you provided and I was drooling all the way through. Their images are gorgeous. Did you design the window image because it mentions your name?
Thanks for sharing Debbie
