Hi everyone! Helen here today to share with you a fun little album I made recently, using the new Thoughts Keeper Collection!


I just love this collection in real life. Seeing it in person was honestly a heart-stopping moment for me. It is just.so.beautiful. It is also so versatile & just perfect for unisex & family pages.



Recently I discovered a local (to me – in South Africa) online printer that prints your photos straight from your Instagram account, either as a 9 x 10 Polaroid style print or as a sheet of mini-prints like you see here. I was so excited about it that I got ALL my Instagram photos printed in different configurations & I JUST LOVE THEM! They work perfectly for a tag album but of course

you could print your own at home using the Picasa Collage function or something similar.



Rather than make a post full of photos I have collaged the front pages {fronts of the 4 tags I used} & collaged the back pages {back of the 4 tags I used} & below are some close-up shots collaged together. My tags measure 31/2 by 8 inches & I used large Tim Holtz tags & covered them but you could just as easily make your own tag template. Covering a cardstock tag base would be better than simply gluing 2 patterned papers together as the album is now really firm & strong.

I have made this Sewing book for a person who is addicted to sewing, moreover I added some sheets for making the tracings and sketches. I guess that such a person loves everything about lace, ribbons and so on.
also I added some folded books for keeping the photos of a beautiful dress she has sewn or the customer shared with her.
So I tried to be attentive to every detail such lady loves.
