TAGS TAGS AND MORE TAGS~ My book is chunky...just like my minis I create

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to shared with you what I did with my beautiful tags. The tag book is popping, can I turn the pages easily? NO! But it's fun and still can pull the tags out when I want to use one in a mini album. You'll also see a basket behind one the book pages, those are hung with a silver mega ring. I have so many tags and I love them all. Thank you.... to all of you that keep me going, especially when my mind takes me back to sad and painful memories....but I have a million beautiful Memories too! You guys keep me busy!!! And that's a good thing. Enjoy the pics! Hugs, Velma


This is a great book, it has kraft paper pages, page protectors and also black pocket pages. With the book being so chunky (I still love it) maybe I'll think about taking the black o-wires out to put in a larger one.

My beautiful tags!
There's a ton of kraft pages, I didn't even use all the pages.
I love my swappers tags so much!
I think I'm a "tag collector"

The Valentine Tag here...I made for my Beautiful Mama last year using a Velma Flower on the bottom of the tag.

 Here's the black pocket pages I was talking about, great to keep my goodies in so I know who they came from. And also the beautiful cards and notes I receive.


Here's the page protectors I was talking about (above)


Some of the packaging for our swaps are so awesome, maybe we should have a "packaging swap", just kidding, but they are beautiful.
I just posted this pic down at the bottom, opps, I wasn't paying attention!

Is this tag book chunky or what?
Below, here's the duplicate pic

All the tags are just beautiful! Thank you to my swappers...you are what makes my Tag Swap successful! I have more and more tags from a few years ago, I have tags everywhere...just not in my book. I saw a couple of videos where the person hung string/ribbon on her wall, attached each tag with a a piece of ribbon going through the hole, they look awesome hanging. Then on another video I viewed, this person hung all her tags from a chandelier........can you believe that? Does she have to climb up a ladder to pull a tag~ it looked beautiful! Can you believe we have to get ready for the March Tag Swap? Omgosh, it will almost be Spring Time, we're in a new year, where has the time gone? Happy Creating!

What a wonderful idea! I have one of them books only with white pages inside. How do you make the tags stick to the pages and still be able to use them. I can't wait to get mine from you. It is my first swap. And can't wait to sign up for the next one.

Hi Virginia~ I used my ATG adhesive gun, put a small strip on top and bottom, when removing the tag use your finger to roll of the excess adhesive off the back of tag. I've found that this is the only adhesive that you can remove, only if you use a small amount, Hugs, Velma
