Mini Tag Album

My latest craze it mini albums from tags. Sooo fun, soooo easy, and sooo great for new scrappers. Sometimes it can be daunting to think about scrapping a big 12x12 scrapbook. A great way for newbies to start is with a smaller version; such as this.

Watch the video for details on how I covered the tags, created embellishments, and messed some stuff up - ha. 

Papers I used are mostly from My Minds Eye - however there are a couple of them from Jillibean Soup as well.

My video stopped for some reason in the middle so I ended up with two parts. Yeah, I finally figured out how to merge the two together in YouTube. Enjoy

I haven't totally finished the one I started during the video. I am however up to 6 tags so that's 12 pages total. I was about half way thru when my cutie patootie 5 yr old grandson bopped in and wanted to help. Needless to say - we got side-tracked. I'll finish in the next day or so and take pics to show you how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.

My First Tutorial - My Humble Beginnings - ha

Owl card using Sizzix & Stephanie Barnard matching stamps and dies. I figured I would start my first video EASY - ha.  So, given that I have no idea what I'm doing, or how to edit it you get all the extras; like putting my clear stamp on backwards and getting a blog, my fat arm swinging thru the camera area, and basic fumbling around; but all in all, I'm thinkin' for my first try, not to bad.

Feel free to leave comments - and be brutally honest ;-)  I know I would.

Here's the card I'm making
