Shabby & Vintage Tag Brag Book

This is the cover of the album. It measures 3 inches wide by 6 inches tall. I attached a silver ring at the top and then added lace, fibers, and jute twine. I also attached charms using these fibers.
Next I will show you the pages, one by one so you can see all the details...... 

12 page tag board (12 pages including both sides & cover along with the back). It is joined together at the top by a silver ring with tons of fibers and lace. The cream lace is vintage (along with the trim inside the album). I have also attached charms with the fibers.

The theme of this album revolves around love. The cover says it all with the vintage looking image of the boy and the little girl. It says at the bottom, "Birds of a feather" and below that is a feather and I stamped a little bird on a pink scalloped circle. There are also pearls, lace, buttons, stamping, diecuts and chipboard. Everything has been given a vintage and shabby look to it.

All the pages are sewn all the way around in this album.
The first page has a photo mount, a tab for easy flipping from the cover to the first page, a stamped bird, stamping at the top, a stamped & embellished cupcake and a glittery embellishment that reads "love birds." On the second page there is a paper doily, a crocheted pink butterfly with a pearl in the center, a stamped LOVE banner at the bottom and at the top says "Sweet." There is vintage trim at the bottom.

On the next set of pages there is a handmade stained paper photo tag, a stamped embellishment with a green button in the center and then I created a crown tag with a vintage feel. There are also journaling lines on this and the next page. Below that is a photo mount wrapped with jute twine then has pink fibers with a chipboard embellishment attached that reads "delight." There is an embossed owl at the top. He is inked to bring out the details.

On the next set of pages there is a hand stamped damask photo mount, a "vintaged" heart and then below that is a genuine vintage ticket stub (you can get these on here at the shop COZYCORNERCRAFTS - Great shop!) Below that is another green photo mat, more vintage trim, two "vintaged" hearts, and I stamped an awesome flower at the bottom. There is also a pink button in the corner along with more stamping at the top.

On the next set of pages there is a layered photo mount with a pretty green button, a flocked embellishment. With the flocked embellishment, I distressed the edges with my distresser tool & ink to give it a cool look. There is more stamping on this page. Below that is another paper lace doily (I love these things!) and a chipboard embellishment with twine at the top. Towards the bottom of the doily, it has an embellishment that reads "THE ONE I LOVE." There is also a green button. There is a stamped butterfly above and there is stamped journaling lines below.

On the last set of pages there is a distressed paper photo mount, damask paper torn corners, stamping, and a little embellishment inside the swirl that reads "You & Me." Below that is another pretty green photo mat, distressed scalloped edges, a paper damask torn corner, a butterfly with a pearly center, a tag with a sweet cupcake in the middle, lace at the bottom along with stamping and an embellishment of a letter with a heart "seal."

The back is plain for laying flat, but there is journaling lines if you would like to date or add any special notes.
