DCWV/Xyron – Tag Mini Album

Hello my crafty friends! I am so excited to share with you today’s post because the Xyron design team is teaming up with DCWV.  My project today is an inspirational Tag/Mini Album, using stamps from my stash, showcasing this beautiful paper pack by DCWV called “Meet Me in Paris”.  A huge “thank you” to DCWV and Xyron for all of the amazing products we got to play with. They are extremely beautiful!

 

Here are the supplies I got to play with.

I started out by die-cutting my tags using the beautiful paper packs and a tag die by Kat Scrappiness.  I distressed the tags with my distress ink using my sponge to make the tags look a little more vintage.   I also used my Xyron mega tape runner to adhere both tags to make it a little more sturdy.

 

For my tag below, I used an Eiffel tower die from my stash that I die-cut in gold.   I then used my Xyron Creative Station Lite to adhere the die-cut on my first tag.  I did the same process for all of my tags.

 

Here are the photos of the individual tags.  The first one is a shaker tag:

Here’s a photo of all of the tags.  I really love how it turned out:

Here’s what the tag mini album look like with the binder clip.  I also embellished the album with a gold tassel and a silver key.

I hope you got inspired today and like my project.  If you are interested to purchase DCWV paper packs, they are available online at http://www.joann.com.

 

My Once Upon A Time Chipboard Album

I am so happy that I finally finished my Once Upon A Time chipboard album. This has been an 8-month process and I almost gave up and didn’t finish the album. After putting it away for a few months, I decided to start on it again and somehow found the inspiration to finish it.

The album is 9.5 x 11 inches and it is very heavy. It will be kept in a keepsake box to protect the decoration on the album. I used a lot of Tim Holtz and Stampin’ Up! dies to decorate the pages. It was too difficult for me to cover the DCWV paper that I used in the whole album, because the designs were just too pretty.

I know that compared to some of the albums that you see on the internet, mine is not even as beautiful as what the others have posted on YouTube; but I am quite happy and proud of what I have achieved in the whole process of putting it together.

I hope you all check it out and see if you like my album. Hopefully it will give you some ideas on how to decorate yours.

Do some crafting with your kids, grandkids, etc. and create some great memories! XO!
