Our Story Tag Album

I purchased a $5.00 Colorbox paper pad from Wal-Mart and I challenged myself to make a tag album using only the paper in the pad. Please check out my video to see if I succeeded. I have provided measurements below for each page. Hope you enjoy the video!

The tag is from page 79 of the Tags Bags Boxes and More (TBBM ) cartridge. I cut the tag at 5 ½ inches and I also cut the shadow. The flower is from Forever Young p 71 and is cut at 3 ½ inches. The tag packet is on page 113 of TBBM and cut at 6 inches. The inside tag is on page 79 and is cut at 3 inches. Our Story tag is from the paper pack. The rest of the tags are cut using the shadow feature. I inked all edges using Tim Holtz’s walnut stain distress ink.

Back of Cover:
I used two flower punches and attached pearls. The rectangle is 2 x 3 inches with rounded corners. The tab is from the paper packet.

Page one:
I cut three rectangles, one 2 x 3 ¼ and two 1 ¾ by 1 ½ inches. Back of page one is blank.

Page two:
I cut a 3 x 4½ rectangle and a 2 ¾ x 3 ¾ rectangle. Back of page two is blank.

Page three:
The bird house is from the Cindy Loo cartridge and cut at 3 ½ inches. I cuttlebuged the birdhouse using the Swiss dots folder and glittered the heart. The tag packet and tag are cut the same as the ones on the cover.

True Love was cut at 2 ¼ inch using the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge
