How To Create a Tag Book With Emerson Lane
Breathtaking Emerson Lane showing itself off in this newest tag book.
Today I am sharing with you a new mini album, or tag book, if you will. Emerson Lane is the most stunning of collections sitting on my work table right now. I love it’s soft feminine vibe. Yet it’s bold colors that are great for any story needing to be told.
My love for tag books is deep. When I discovered these little gems of memories and journaling so many years ago they have since held a special place in my creative heart. All those layers and textures loosely fitting together. Definitely a crafting feat I need to return to more often.
This particular tag book is in remembrance of something Heidi said to me a long time ago. Take beautiful pictures of your children for those days when you need them most. An ode, if you will, to my kids looking their best right here. Right now.
In my harried parenting I need this curated collection of photos + words just to remind me that…it’s all going to be OK. Does that resonate with you? Well. Then. Take those pretty photos. And pair them with pretty paper.
This tag book format is one I reach for often. I have not really recreated the wheel from one to the other. They are each similar with a different paper collection flair. The dimensions are right about 4×6-inches. And starting with the first ‘tag’ at the front, each one getting slightly larger as the mini progresses. This allows all the pages to peek out if only a little. Each layer of Emerson Lane invites you to keep discovering the next.
For this tag album in particular, I used the Emerson Lane Envelopes that are part of this awesome little book. The order of this book is as follows:
One tag holds a photo. These are about 3×4-inches. I embellished with the vellum and die cut from the Ephemera pack. I also trimmed words from pattern paper to use as embellishments. And then a heart was popped up on each of the photos. Either one from the Ephemera or from the Cardstock Stickers.
An envelope is found next. The envelope is embellished as well. On this navy square one I added some of the floral pattern from the Stencil pack. This was splattered with gold metallic paint. A label from the Cardstock Stickers was layered over that. And then a pretty pink vellum Details die cut finishes the layering.
This envelope here was made with the WeRMemoryKeepers Pocket Punch Board. I needed an extra one and so I put some pattern paper to work. Gee I love how this is coming together.
All the tags are different. I will include a link to the tag downloads. You can use as a template to create your own book. Or convert on your digital cut machine and let it do the work for you.
Emerson Lane practically makes this tag album for a person. It’s just not hard to make pretty stuff with such a pretty collection of paper, ephemera and stickers.
This is just one way to show off photos well worth remembering. Stunning Emerson Lane is one of many Heidi Swapp collections that makes it all so beautiful. Take some beautiful photos. Download the tags. And be inspired to create your own tag mini album book.
