Mini Brag Book Using Tags

Monique, Misfit Crafter here to share a quick little project using the DCWV DIY Project Stack-Tags.


So I am really bad about sending pictures out the the in-laws and other family. So I usually end up just making a photo book or mini album instead to catch them all up with family photos. So here is a really quick Tag Brag Book I made for my MIL. 
I printed the pictures using the Polaroid Zip Printer. And used the Tag DIY Project stack and this little book came together rather quickly. The only other supplies I needed were a pair of scissors, binder ring & some Beacon 3 in 1 glue. The pictures are self adhesive so score! And all the little embellishments etc are all in the tag stack. 

Here is a closer look at all the pages in the book.
And I am thinking I may add a few more since I can keep opening the binder ring.

Oh Happy Day Mini Album featuring DCWV

Oh my gosh I am so in love with all the new DIY project stacks now at Michaels.
The project I am bringing you today uses two of those new stacks.
The first is the Mini Album Stack which is used for the bones of this Mini Album.
The second is the Tags Stack, which I used to fill in the book. 
Here is a quick little video showing a flip through of the Mini Album I made.
And I still have space to add more pictures.
The size is perfect for all my Polaroid Zip Printer pictures.
And everything was bound using my The Cinch binding machine.

The supplies are simple...
You need these great DCWV Project Stack available at Michaels

Paper Dream Catchers

Hi There!
Monique here to share my DCWV Design Team project.
I want to share with you this wonderfully fun project I made using DCWV's Paper Lace 6x6 stack, In Stitches Stack and Watercolor Stack all available at Hobby Lobby, List and link to supplies will be at the bottom of the post.

This Dream Catcher was made using a 6" round wood cutout where I glued on the butterfly paper from the DCWV In Stitches Stack to the front. On back I glued on various ribbon, ripped scrap fabric, yarn and the Feather cut outs. The feathers where cut on my Cricut Explore. Here is the project link for the feathers.I then used a piece of ribbon at the top in a loop to use to hang. I cut another piece of cardstock from the Watercolor Stack to glue to the back and to hide all the bits from the ribbon and twine. Lastly I added this fun orange yarn to the top to sides and back edges to complete the look.

For my next Dream Catcher I used a 5" Dream Catcher ring and the DCWV Paper Lace 6x6 stack. I first wrapped the ring in a fuzzy yarn to help adhere the paper easier to the ring and it looks cute. I next attached the paper lace page with glue then trimmed off the excess paper. Next I glued all the ribbons, yarn, fabric strips & twine to the back of my piece then added a loop at the top using the fabric strips. And finished it off using a mini pom pom trim.  Again I used the Cricut Explore to cut the feathers.
