Boys & Toys Scrapbook Page with ECD!

Hi, it’s Angela and today I want to share with you a fun & easy scrapbook page that can be created with the tag die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. My friend Nicole created this super cute boy layout. It has a waterfall of tags with pictures of her son Caden enjoying his ATV. Let me share with you how she created this great page!

*Die cut out the number of tags for the waterfall, all tags need to be the same length, then score at 1/2” on straight edge
*Apply 6 mm ECD double sided tape to each scored edge and remove the liner and apply the first tag on the page and then line up the next one under the first butting the scored edges next to one another to create a waterfall effect on the page front.
*Continue to add tags the length you want, then the last one can be used as a visible photo mat or to show patterned paper as Nicole did.

*As a finishing touch, die cut hexagon cut from shimmer sheetz were added to the holes in the tags
Embellishing the page:

*Die cut from the new ribbon & jewels die, a metallic element was added at the bottom of the page that looks like a chain

*Using the metallic shimmer sheetz, gears were die cut and added to the page
*Take a toy car and “drive” it through an ink pad to create the tire tracks on the page

*A metallic clip was also die cut and added to the top of the waterfall

*a wooden “boys & toys” was added to the page

For fun, I am adding a photo of what the table looks like when Nicole, Darcy & I get together to create! We have dies, shimmer sheetz, glitter, paper, Big Shots and adhesive everywhere! Call your friends, invite them over and create something together. Scrapbooking is a great way to enjoy  spending time with your friends. And I am always the most creative when I am around creative friends! I hope you give this technique a try!

Halloween Fun With Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi, it’s Angela and I am so excited to share this project with you. My friend Nicole created a festive Halloween project featuring pull out tags. Let me share with how she created the project using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, peel-off stickers and glitter.
photo a
*A piece of cardstock 17 1/4 x 11 1/2  was scored to create four panels, pockets & a flap

*Inside view of the book with the tags in the pockets

*Four pieces of pattern paper were cut to decorate the back of the book
*Letter & numbers were die cut from black cardstock to create the front title of the book “October 31st” and it was glued on the front cover
*A pumpkin peel-off was placed on double sided adhesive, glittered with diamond glitter, burnished, then colored with copic markers and the cut out
*A magnet was placed between the pumpkin and black cardstock circle to create a magnetic closure for the book front

*Panel # 1 has a pattern paper tag that has been scored twice and it creates a pull down tag which was decorated with a stamp image and metal skeleton

*The tag has a journal spot and pictures placed
*Panel # 2  and panel # 3 have tags folded once and google eyes and photos were used to decorate the tags

*Inside the book was decorated with patterned paper behind the pockets and on panel #4, a patterned tag was placed on the pocket front

*Four back cardstock tags were die cut from assorted tag dies
*The cardstock tags for the pockets were decorated with photos of the kids in costumes and ECD double sided tape was applied to the tags and then  ECD silk micro fine glitter was applied and burnished in

*On the other two tags, glitter was applied and ribbon was placed on all tags

*The names of each child were die cut and glued to the tag back along with photos

*The positive and negative images from the alphabet dies were used to create “Brody’s” name and a gold metallic marker was used to write “My boys 2013”
Nicole did a wonderful job on this cute tag book! Creating one is easy and fun to decorate and embellish. Pull out your photos, dies & glitter and make a tag book keepsake for yourself!
