I did a fun little acrylic tag album Tag # 05 for my project. (You can order this from Creative Cuts and More, and if you don't see them on her website, be sure to contact Terry to get it!) I know that some of the photos really don't show the acrylic very well, so please excuse my camera work. However, I assure you that it is a fabulous acrylic album!! I wanted to use some photos of my daughter. I chose fun summer paper from last year's exclusive Archiver's line by We Are Memory Keepers. The photo above is one of the front of the album. The large ring at the top has different ribbons tied on it. I also used flower punches to punch out the daisy shapes. The label, which I cut in half, I got from CC&M and used Doodlebug letter rub-ons on it. The word "Cute" is actually on the second page. The letters are from Doodlebug also.

On the left hand page, I designed this to cover up the adhesive that showed through from adhering the label to the front page. On the right , I used two different flower punches for the flowers.
On the left page the glittery letters are from Doodlebug. On the right page, although it isn't acrylic, it is a library pocket with a photo inserted. I used a the pocket and cut it to the shape of the tag album. The label on the front is the other half of the label from the front page of the album and the letter rub-ons are from Doodlebug. The flower sticker is from Adorn-it, and the little hinge on the corner of the photo is actually a photo corner/tab from CC&M that is folded in half.

The left page is the back of that library pocket, with a small pocket and tag adhered to it. The flower is punched with a Fiskars punch. (This pocket is one of a set of three. If you like it, contact Terry and ask her about it. Pssstttt....it is Accucut A1003.) The flower on the right page is blinged up with jewels from Doodlebug.

The left page of this layout is another library pocket and tag adhered to the acrylic page. I inserted an acrylic tag into the pocket and used Fancy Pants rub-ons to decorate it and the front of the pocket too. I placed the glittery letters "Fun" behind the tag on the back panel of the library pocket. The letters "girl" on the right page are from Making Memories and they are soft felt. The round yellow circle is decorated using Fancy Pants rub-ons.
The left page is decked out in a girly fashion using Bo-Bunny chipboard swirls and flowers stickers from Adorn-it. The buckle on the right page is from CC&M and is covered in Diamond Glaze, even though in this photo it's not very shiny.

Here is the back cover and the letters are Doodlebug rub-ons and the buckle is from CC&M. These buckles were a blast to work with. I know that you will be seeing them again on other projects!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little album! For more great projects and ideas, not-to-mention blog hopping fun, head on over to Kim's Blog and see what fun projects she has posted!
