Tag Mini Album Tutorial

Hi there crafty friends! I am over on Lori Whitlock's blog today sharing this tutorial. 

I know this project isn't anything we haven't all already seen before, but it is a great reminder of all the great basic shapes Lori has available.

I used several cut files. 12 Tags (SVG, Silhouette) Tag Mini Album (SVG, Silhouette) Pine Trees (SVG, Silhouette) Fill Life with Adventures (SVG, Silhouette) and Fish (SVG, Silhouette).

Once I ha everything uploaded I resized everything to fit 3.5 x 2.5 inch picture. I wanted some varying sizes on the tags so I made some a little smaller and some a little bigger. 

I got everything cut out and glued the tag pieces together. I cut 12 tags and printed 36 pictures so I needed a way to include a few picture on each tag. 

On a couple of the tags I stacked 3 or 4 pictures together, punched a hole in the top left corner, inserted a brad, then flipped the tag over and added washi tape to the prongs so that I wont have to worry about snags or tearing on the next tag.

Another way to add several picture to a tag is to create a washi tape hinge. Place a strip of washi tape at the top of each picture, stack the pictures in a cascade, turn over and adhere to the tag, flip each picture over and apply another strip of washi tape to the back of the picture.

Embellish each tag. I used stickers, washi tape, die cuts, word strips, and twine. I also did a little mixed media on a few of the tags for added texture.

I printed the Fill life with adventures not things on a transparency and placed it on top of a group picture.

The patterned papers and ephemera are from the Gone Camping Collection by Carta Bella. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Lori Whitlocks July Creative Team Blog Hop

Hi there and Welcome to the July Blog Hop!
Our blog line up this month is Lori, Kathy, Brandie, Brigit, and Ashley.

I am sharing the Twist Pop Card Back to School. (SVG, Silhouette) I can't believe it is already back to school season in my area! I love seeing all the new school supplies in the stores and have a hard time not buying a box of crayons for my little guy every time I go shopping. I'm sure I will end up with one box before it all goes away.

I used the new Echo Park Back to School collection for my papers and embellishments. This collection is darling with its bright colors and fun images.

Thanks for hopping along with us today! Bright is up next. Also be sure to check out all the new images and deals at Loris store today!
