So off to search for paper and chipboard I go! The first thing I did was adjust the tag to the size I wanted. Then, for the envelope, that had to be tweaked quite a bit. The original size of the envelope is quite large, so I had to reduce the size quite a bit and make some test cuts until I got it just right.
I cut both the envelope and the tags out in a mid-weight chipboard. Now the easy part was cutting the paper to cover the chipboard! All I had to do was load my paper into my Cricut Explore and cut it at the same dimensions as the chipboard. I think the most difficult part was choosing the paper I wanted to use haha.
Once the chipboard and paper were cut, I glued it all down, then it was time to embellish. I used paper to give this album a vintage look, so my embellishments will follow the same theme. On the envelope cover, I used a stencil and some modeling paste and added the hexagons on the bottom left. I'm a big fan of texture and use it whenever I can. I then went through my stash and found some Tim Holtz elements, as well as a Prima flower.
I used Theresa Collins paper for the tag album, and some embellishments from her same collection. Next I will show you several pages in this album.
The dress form is a Cottage Cutz die cut. I have used this die soo many times! It fits in with a lot of different themes.
I added this pocket and made some tags to go inside. You can either place a picture or journaling on the tags.
This was specifically for a picture of my husband and I.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my little Tag Album and Envelope. Get out your Cricut Mini Album cartridge and take a look! There's some really cute things in there!
Hope you have a crafty day ~ Deb
