Raining Cats & Dogs Square Album

By Marina Blaukitchen


“Square albums are perfect for storing many photos. You can decorate each cover with a different collection to store photos of different themes. In that case, I decorated the square album with the beautiful collection Raining Cats & Dogs for my friend Olga who has a new four-legged member in her family, the beautiful little dog Arya.



Surely she fills it with beautiful family scenes from the first days at home with her lovely daughters and special moments.



I love this collection, the designs of the pages with precious and very appropriate for the albums of our beloved pets.




Here you can see how the spine and its back are. I have incorporated an elastic band to complete the closing of the album.



You can add tags in the inside pockets and in the pages of the album to have much more space for your photos.


Here is a video to see inside.

The Bees’ Knees Tag Mini

By Kathy Clement


“I’m a huge fan of G45 Staples Tags!  They come in many styles and sizes, which means you can use them in a near endless variety of ways.  The beautifully shaped edge and vintage metal grommet make them the perfect layering element on a card or layout.  You can string alpha tags together to make a pretty banner that spells out a special greeting, tie a decorated tag onto gift packaging to take it to the next level, or tuck a decorated tag into a card to be used as a bookmark to turn a card into a gift.  I’ve even used Staples Tags as pages in my mini albums.

I'm crazy for the 'Off to the Races" collection. I'm originally from Upstate NY and regularly went to Saratoga for the races. I'm not much of a gambler, but in Saratoga it was mostly about fashion, MaryLou Whitney events, and of course all the people and horses to watch. Love this collection. And as an animal rescuer for the last 25 these sweet albums made up with Raining Cats & Dogs paper. TFS!

Marina's album and Kathy's tag are pretty! Nice job ladies. I have the G45 Raining Dogs papers and plan to make a similar album for my son's new dog.
