Tag Book Construction Made Simple

I was asked to make a simple tag book as a sample for a group of scrappers to use as a template for making their own...This is what I came up with...I started with my favorite tag die cut...
Some photos I made at a local zoo and the brochure from the zoo...I used my Acrylic Templates from Evolving Images to crop and layer my photos with...
I used a distress ink pad to add some color to the tan cardstock die cuts...kinda give the effect of fabric...just by rubbing the ink pad across the cardstock...
This is the cover of the book...it uses a cropped and layered photo as well as part of the brochure as the title...
Here I used words from the brochure to label the photos on each tag page...
I chose not to use any stamping or lots of other embellishments, as this was for a group of new scrappers...so I was asked to make it very basic, yet complete...
I think the tag book tells its story rather well...I am working on an updated version to share in the future...Be sure and check out my studio blog for die cut kits and some new kits coming soon http://thestudioinprestont.blogspot.com and as always...if you have any questions email me at debbiesdiecuts@yahoo.com
