Tuesday Tutorial with Wendy

Hello everyone!

It's Wendy here today sharing up my Tuesday Tutorial with you.  Sometimes I like to break it up from the typical scrapbook layout and add a little something extra and unpredictable into my album. Let's just call it a 'scrapbook layout tag' that I created to use in my 9x12 album using only the February 2016 Main "Stories" Kit.

Have no fear to be random!

So, I went 'off the page' in creating my tag to add into my album.  Sometimes I like to hang a 'scrapbook layout tag' onto my inspiration board in my art room before inserting into my album.

Let's get started with making the 'scrapbook layout tag'.

I cut the tag base from white cardstock (included in the February 2016 Main "Stories" Kit) to 5 1/2" x 12".  Then, using preferred colors of mists to spritz the tag.  There are some nice colors of mists available over in the shop here.  I like the 'less is more' approach in using mists. 

I mounted my picture under a striped frame (included in the ephemera pack).  Several frame choices in the package this month.  I found this frame appropriate as my husband is 100% Italian and well, we say 'ciao' A LOT. Ha!  

I added a tag "me + you" (from the ephemera pack) to the edge of my frame.  I mounted the photo with some mini staples over the small doily.  There are two doilies included in the February 2016 Main "Stories" Kit this month, a large and small doily. 

I finished off the photo with a phrase stamp under the framed picture.  For the record, I can't say enough about the Citrus Twist Kits stamps but in short, I'm an instant fan and they are superb quality.  I'm one girl super picky about my stamps. 

I added some of those fun and sweet puffy stickers from the February 2016 Main "Stories" Kit at the bottom of my tag along with the stamped stars from the exclusive stamp set in the kit.

You can finish off your tag with those 'oh so clever' cork shapes from the February 2016 Main "Stories" Kit sprinkled randomly along the misting.

There you have it!  

A simple, quick and easy tag you can use in your scrapbook album, as a card, or even as a bookmark, if you choose. 

I hope I inspired you and you enjoyed my Tuesday Tutorial!
