I started with a 6.5 by 6.5 inch paper pad from Kaisercraft called "The Class of '87". Love it. I can't remember where I found it but there was nothing to go with it, no stamp,stickers, rub-ons, chipboard, nada. The great thing was that this pack (and I think all Kaisercraft pads have this) includes is four sheets of diecuts in the back. Love it when a paper pad comes with built-in embellishments. More bang for your buck, I think.
I used some of the border strips and created a pocket so that I didn't have to cover up the paper. Tags are made with the designer paper and SU Real Red cardstock mounted on Kraft.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch as a belly band to hold those tags in place. Here is the first half page as well. More SU tags using Bashful Blue, Elegant Eggplant, and Only Orange (?).
Acetate is so fun to work with and I love the challenge of figuring out how to keep my adhesive covered. Large photo mat is created using a 6.25 x 4.25 piece of SU Crushed Curry popped up on foam dots with two Kraft tags tucked beneath.
Second half page tied up with ruler twine to offer a place to tuck special notes and such. Same photo mat as the last page but with SU Wild Wasabi, one of my favs.
The envelope page that I completely forgot to take pictures of the tags inside. You can see that in the video HERE. (same ones that I used in the Rainbow Mini)
Love the multiplication and counting charts!
Some of my favorite things about doing projects like this are the small details. Like Glossy Accents and strategically placed cuteness.
Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
