It's From Her Treasure

My Treasure Stash!

I love the german scrap!

Not too long ago my fellow tea drinker, friend, and blogger bud, Gerri (It's All Treasure) sent out some lovely packages of mixed media goodies to see what others would come up with from her stash of treasures. I was blessed to received some of those treasures, and was anxious to play. We only had to use a few of the items, but I got a bit carried away and used quite a lot. I ended up creating a tag booklet out of a manila folder...with lots of pockets to hold tags. =)

Blogger is being difficult and not letting post some of the photos of this project, but I'll have another post, hopefully this weekend, with a tutorial for making this booklet, and more photos.

The booklet first opens up to this 2 page spread.  The left & right side open outward to a 4 page spread, which is the photo Blogger isn't letting me post for some reason. 

More pockets for more tags!
I made the tassels on the tags from the metallic threads on the card from the stash.

This is the left side of the 4 page spread.  The lighting makes this page look pretty yellow for some reason, but its coloring is a closer comparison to the next photo.

And LOTS more pocket space.
The mini tags were actually black & white post-it notes.  I added some vintage color distress ink, stamped some flourishes, & matted them to black cardstock.

This is the right side of the 4 page spread.

With more tags, of course. 

There were several more photos I wasn't able to add due to a problem with Blogger, but hopefully you get the idea.  Make sure you take some time to stop over to Gerri's blog, "It's All Treasure", to see what the others made with their treasures.  And thank you for popping in to see mine!

Enjoy today!  Lisa
