Another Page from my Graphic 45 Album.....

Hello everyone and welcome to Monday!  I have been battling a tummy bug so I'm hoping to get back in the groove today.  To get things started I'm sharing another page from my album.

I made a diagonal pocket and trimmed with a retired Spellbinders die (Grand 12" Classic Lace Border)  from my hoard .  I cut a strip of the G45 Secret Garden paper and glued it down the side of the pocket (Such pretty flowers).  Next I made a tag and covered it with a piece of the green paper and cut out a journaling spot and put it on the top and I also cut out a piece that had a sentiment on it and I used pop dots to pop it up from the rest of the tag.  I tied a piece of off white seam binding and edged the edges with distress inks and that tag is finished.  I did a large photo tag and slipped it down in the same pocket.  On the front of the diagonal pocket there is a small pocket with a little tag I cut out of the papers as well.  I put a little bling as well as the ticket that says "Spring" on the outside of this pocket.  Next comes a few pretty flowers (Out of my hoard and I cannot remember from where).  I cut out a butterfly and glittered it up and then I glued him to the bottom of the flowers.  I also added some glitter to the daisy flowers on the background sheet.  So you see, I continue to use items from my hoarded stash on my projects.  I think I might be on a roll!

This page was a lot of fun but I must confess I need some ideas for more pockets for tags for the remainder of the pages.  I'm thinking I will check out YouTube for some ideas.  Who knows what I might try next!

OK, that does it for me this morning.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed making it.  This is truly addictive and I will probably do more, but I have to confess, I truly miss my card making.

Oh one more thing!  This morning at 9AM EST go check out the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog Gloria  is featuring some of the favorites picked from their entries and showcasing their creations. How cool is that?  Be sure to go and leave some love.  We all love hearing from you!

Hi Glenda,

What a pretty page. I love the tags and the bling that you've added. I would think you could make any of these pages into cards... using the same techniques?

Happy Monday.
