The very talented Gwen Casteel did a lovely tag mini album where you can put your tags. She then at the end gave a challenge for us to make one, so I did lol.
I used the Prima Finnabair Vintage Vanity paper pad, this is a lovely paperline which you can do a lot with, I have used it as a base for stencilling, gilding flake it (of course) etc.
I had made a tag for the Scrapadabadoo Crafts Facebook Challenge and thought this would be fab on the cover of a tag mini album.The tag base is from the bottom of my spray box (I put kitchen roll at the bottom to catch overspray) and I get lots of yummy stuff from it. The one above i mostly Lindys Stamp Gang Cowaabunga Copper and My Mojito Green. The flowers are the Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur Precut Set and matching die. I sprayed the flowers with Prima Color Bloom Cotton Candy, I had a little piece of ribbon from my stash and the postcard charm came from the charm packs Scrapadabadoo make up.

For the matt I used Prima Crackle Stencil #564247 (I wish they would name their stencils !) with Walnut Stain distress ink.
Pages 2 and 3
Left side I used Tim Holtz Stencil Dots Fade and Frayed Burlap distress Ink , the one on the right is Prima Art Deco stencil #569471 with Lindys Stamp Gang Cowabunga Copper spray.
Pages 4 and 5
The tag on the left is another kitchen towel overspray this time mostly Prima Color Bloom Cotton Candy and Soft Teal, the right hand is matted with the paperline.
Pages 5 and 6
Left matt is Tim Holz stencil Stripes with walnut stain distress ink and droplets of Lindys Stamp Gang Cowabunga Copper, and on the right is Balzer Designs Butterfly Bits, I had sprayed Prima Color Bloom Soft teal and there was a lot of spray left on the stencil so used it like a stamp on the matt.
Pages 6 and 7
Tag on the left is TCW Rebekah Meier Mini Ring Doily with Prima Color Bloom Cotton Candy well sprayed., on the right I used strips of the paperline to make an uppy downy belly band.

Tag I used the Butterfly Bits stencil and sprayed it with Prima Color Bloom Soft Teal.
Loving the color bloom sprays so yummy.
Spine dangle - I made a mini tag album to hang from the top.
Inside you can put a secret message. The covers are 1" square, the tags are about 3/4" x 3/4". I cut a piece of patterned paper 1 1/4"" width x length as desired and scored 1/4" for turn up and every 1" to make pockets, you can seal the bottoms of the fold pieces to allow a miniature tag to be inserted in the top.
Thanks Gwen, had a blast making this.
