I used the Taylored Expressions Luggage Tag (largest size) die to create my album. To make sure that this is sturdy and will hold up to handling, I used chipboard as my base. Each photo was edited, cropped and printed. The edges of each tag were inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink. Since I will be adding to this album as years go by, I simply tied the tags together with some twill ribbon.
For the cover, I used the backpack image and sentiment from Mischief Maker - Back to School. I've used this set quite a bit, and I still love it! The backpack was stamped onto Choice Watercolor paper and colored with watercolors. I then fussy cut it and popped it up with foam tape. A tiny wood veneer star was added to the backpack.
Each page features a photo of Sabrina's first day of school, starting with preschool in 2006 and ending with the latest photo of her first day of 6th grade last week. I used Simple Stories DIY stickers (typeset) to add the grade to the bottom of each photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
