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!



Cover:
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.

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