THE TIME OF MY LIFE TAG MINI ALBUM
I say that one can never have too many butterfly shapes in their collection!
For the cover, I've used the Elegant Butterflies Dies. I cut the same shape twice, embossed the top
piece and then layered together with a foam dot. I colored in the antennae with a brown ZIG marker.
I just fell in love with the cute shape of the Banner Day Die #1 and arranged it
(upside down) as a nice accent piece to the little focal point.
A woodgrain butterfly! This is the larger shaped butterfly from the same set as
mentioned above. I embellished his center with a mini clothespin and one of the tag stickers
from the "Lively" Collection by Authentique.
Next to butterflies, one can never have too many styles of leaf shapes...I adore this Leafy Branch Die.
I have all ready used it on a couple of different projects and changed up the look by clipping off
small pieces of the vine and tucking them behind flowers. Or, cut a few of the shape and make a
trailing vine on a scrapbook page or card!
Ah! An example of cutting the leafy branch die apart and fashioning them in fun ways.
I attached the pieces to the page using a small square foam dot for the larger leaves and then a
dab of glue on the stem and smaller leaves.
All of the pretty papers are from the Lively Collection (with the exception of the butterfly
motif paper that is a part of the Carefree Collection)...I'd never realized how well these two paper lines
coordinated until I spread it all out together! #sometimesyoujustneedtolook :)
I really like using these mini tag albums for small gifts or for brag books. There are several shapes
available at Scrapbooker's Emporium at Etsy...at a fantastic price too!
Thanks so much for joining me on today's hop!
