Tag book

Good Morning all,
Sorry I'm a little late posting but Blogger was playing up with my photos. Today I thought I would share with you a tag/swap book I've made. The tutorial for this mini album can be brought from Following the Papertrail. On the Docrafts site I'm in a tag swap. This is going to happen each month of this year. This album is to store these tags and any other swaps that I receive. Above is the front cover of my album. In this album all the pages are made from DCWV La Creme stack.

This rose was made from Tim Holtz tattered pinecone die. You use two of the pinecones to make this rose.
This flower was made from the mini tattered florals.

Here is the first page of the lbum. There's three styles of pages throughout this album. There's a pocket on the front and the pages form a pocket at the top.

This is the page open. Two of these makes one page. I thought I'd share with you the tags I've received so far.
This tag is January's. The theme was 1950's women. This was made by Svetlana.

February's tag was all about Love. This was made by Fiona.

March tag has a Mother's day feel to it. In the U.K we celebrate Mothering Sunday in March. This was made by my very good friend Kay.

Here is the other side of the first page. You can see out it mirrors itself to form a pocket at the top.

Here it is closed.

Page two has a pocket at the top agin but opens differently. Again you make two of these and stick them back to back.

Here it is opened. Plenty of space for journalling and to add more pockets.

Here's page three open.

Here's page three closed.

I have also got band that I brought for a £1 to work as a closer for the album. It can be removed easily and is quite stretchy. I need to make another one of these but with a few less pages and with a christmas theme for the December tag swap which will be lots of christmas style tags.
Thanks to Pam for having me today at The Bugbytes. Come back tomorrow as I'm taking part in a blog hop. The theme is all about me or Green. There will be a little bit of candy too. It starts at The Bugbytes tomorrow.
Enjoy the sunshine.

This is such a fabulous idea, Kelly! I belong to an ATC swap group and I need to do a book to keep all the ATCs. Mine will probably be 3 ring binder size since I have 9-pocket sheets for them. I'm going to steal some of your ideas! :-D
