Make A Page With Ali : Tag Scrapbook Kit Number 02

My new Make A Page With Ali series continues today + I'm actually sharing two pages in this post/video. 

This one starts off using another pattern paper from the Tag Scrapbook Kit to create a fun, interactive tag page telling a little story about Anna right now. After I finished that one up I decided I wanted to add a story to the back of the tags right away vs. leaving it for another time (so fun to be in a groove).

Let's dive in to the video: 

Here's a closer look at the pages: 


This page started off with a full page photo and two of the pattern papers from the Tag Scrapbook Kit. The photo of Anna + her friends walking towards my car after school was the jumping off point for this story and I knew I could use the tags to tell more of the story whether I used the full size pattern paper or cut out the tags. 

I decided to cut out the tags and use a 6x8 page attacher as the base for the story.  

After cutting out the tags from the pattern paper I started the process of figuring out how this was going to come together. I decided to use a stamp with large scripted words (I think this one was offered with Week In The Life™ last year) as a title on the top of each tag. 

To create the tag flip ups I used the blank tags (the ones I stamped "remember" on to) as the base and then used a strip of cardstock to create the flip up. The strip of cardstock is folded in half and adhered to both the top tags (the one with the numbers + then the tag photos) and the bottom tag to create the flip. 

I dove into my stash of circles to add embellishments to the front of the tags. I grabbed two puffy circles and one fabric circle. 

Along the outside edge of the tags I added ribbon. 

You can see here how I printed and cropped photos that go on the underside of the number tags. 

This is such a fun way to create an interactive story-focused page!

Make sure to check out the video to see the full step by step on how I set up this tag page. 


Story number 02 is built on the back side of the tags (I did use a little scotch tape to secure them together before I started this process). 

For this page I decided to go with another full photo foundation + sized my image to be 5 inches wide x 8.25 inches tall and then I cut it with my craft knife to fit around the background tag shape. 

I cut a small piece of Grafix Transparency and stitched it to the background photo and also added some more of that scalloped washi tape I can't seem to stop adding to my projects. 

For this page I used one of the vellum tags from the subscriber Add On options this month as the base for my journaling. I measured a text box, did a test print on white paper, and then used washi tape to adhere the vellum tag to the same location on that white paper. It did up coming out a little crooked (I should have used more washi tape to hold it in place) but I'm using it because I really like these vellum tags + it's good enough! 

The tag then slips into the pocket that's built on the photo foundation. On top of the pocket I added a chipboard circle from the January 2023 Stories By The Month kit and then used a POSCA Paint Pen to draw the circle on top. 

The other thing I added when adding the ribbon on the top was a chipboard 3 from my stash (you can see it through the vellum). The three goes along with the story I'm telling about me + Anna + Simon watching a movie together.

    Thank you for this great new series!
    Wanted to grab the stamps of the story play collection to play alongside you and make something in community this year - but unfortunatelly I was too slow.
    Will think about joining in "making a page" each week instead.

    How fun Ali! It felt like a December Daily video that I got to enjoy with my morning coffee! ….will you keep us updated on how the page attacher does? I used one in WITL and the plastic pieces kept wanting to separate and not stick to each other. I’m trying to think of what I could use to hold the 2 sides together. I may try super glue. 😂 I’m hoping yours doesn’t end up doing that - so keep us updated as you’re flipping through your album this year. Thanks so much!

      …or maybe you cut your page attacher in half? I folded mine over to sandwich the photo. I need to play around and see if I can find a solution so I can flip my pages easily.

      I cut them in half - less bulk that way!

    I like watching how you decide to add “one more thing.” Like the #3 and then the Posca paint pen detail. Inspiring. Teaches me about design. Love these pages! Going to use the 1-2-3 tags to tell another story about my 3 year old son a la Laura Wonsik.

    I have an input regarding the page attacher. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed after receiving them. For now I cut it also in half. I thought they are ready to use and have glue on both sides. Also the wholes are too small in order to turn the page without hassle.

    I made this page too. Today I created the back of it. To be honest. It turned out not so perfect. I really thought about it to make both pages again because of that. But your sentence "it's good enough!" encourages me to accept imperfection. Thank you.
