Southern comfort, mini Album for Dragons Lair

Hello everyone,  I have been working with the gorgeous 'Southern Comfort' range
From the Dragons Lair store

Find these shown above and lots of others on the website to be found  Here

This is my Inspirational project for September , I did get a bit carried away with
This mini tags album ,
but everything is so lovely it's hard to stop !

I made the book a little bigger than intended , but it meant I could get more in it :-)

This is the back view

So , I started with heavy cream coloured card , cut and folded as below
                                                    It's 6 1/2 " high, I forgot to write that in !

I made 4 tag holders to fit  as shown below

                          I used my Tim Holtz die to cut out 4 tags in 2 different patterns

             As is my fashion, everything is distressed, torn and inked within an inch of it's life !

 This is a section of the inside below

The photo below is the outside , showing the rounded flap with a cream semi circle die cut

Next I started on the 4 tags , laying out papers and elements to see what looks good
See below

I decorated the tags and holders, doing 2 different designs

            These are the holders decorated below 2 photo's

And here below are the 2 different tags 

I couldn't resist a bit of spritzing ink in places 

Then here above and below are is the tags in their holders

I made a little strap inside for my tags and here they are -  as above

Below is a view of the front with one of the lovely fans cut out . I used a 
Big brass button & ribbon as a tie fastener but also Velcro dot inside.


I do appreciate you taking the time to add a comment, thanks i love reading them all :-)
