Master Detective DIY Tag Album

By Lena Astafeva

 

“Today I’m showing my work where I’ve used three products from Graphic 45. These are: Large Tag Album, Metal Clock Keys and Master Detective 8x8 Pad.

I’ve made an album out of tags. I like to make mini albums very much because I can give them to my closest friends as a gift.

3x3 Craft Challenge - Travelers Journal & Diary 

By Olga Heldwein 

"I created travelers journal/diary using large Tag Album and Children's Hour calendar collection. Each page is for one month of the upcoming year, for me to add comments, pictures, and some kind of year end summary in one book. I left all tags blank as I want to add some writing on them in the future. I even put one of the events that is coming up in January already. This Album is great for diaries as well because it has a lot of pockets that will hold all your precious ephemera, photos, and small souvenirs.

I wrapped string through tags and mounted keys on them. I’m planning to add some small souvenirs tickets etc and wrap them with string tag and key and keep them in those large side pockets. I will slide a ll photos into page pockets, but tags fit there as well." ~Olga
