I'm digging deep!

I am going back into the files to find some things that I haven't uploaded. All of the recent things I've made have been the hurry up type...therefore no pictures. Things like birthday cards, Easter baskets, etc...all made and out the door the same day! This is a little tag scrapbook I made at a retreat back in August!! We are going again this year and I CANNOT WAIT!!!! For this book, you use two pieces of mat board for the cover. My mom was and X-ray tech before she retired, and she gave me a box of thin cardboard that came with her films. I cut two pieces 6x6 and covered them with the DP. I used paper from a retired Simply Scrapping kit by SU!. Actually the whole thing uses pieces from the SS Kit.



The binding is an accordion folded piece, with ribbon through it to keep the book from flopping around. On the inside there are eight tags where you can put pictures, journaling or embellishments. What ever you choose.



I was really quite surprised how easy this went together. Let me know if you'd like to see a tutorial and I'll see what I can do! Remember you can click on the pictures to see a closer view. Thanks for looking!
