National Scrapbook Day-Frank Garcia DT Blog Hop




Hello Friends!


Welcome to the Frank Garcia International Scrapbooking Day Blog Hop! 

We have some surprises in store for you in this hop! We are featuring some of our favorite Frank Garcia projects from the design team and we also have a giveaway up for grabs! We will be starting on the Prima Blog, simply follow along on each blog, leave a comment and/or follow each of the fabulous designers to be entered to win! 
Winner will be announced on May 15th! Good luck and have fun!

Start at the Prima blog and make your way through all of these fantastic blogs and then end where you began!


Today, I wanted to share one of my very favorite projects to date: 

Tales of You and Me Tag Book: 

I created this album using 4 large chipboard tags by Prima-they come in a packge of 12, so that works great if you want to make a few of these little beauties as gifts!




I made the pages in accordian style tied with seam binding. The silky ribbon makes it easier to fold and unfold without catching. 



If you would like to take a peek at how this was made-see the class right here! I created the project during the class from start to finish, along with fun ideas and techniques to try for your self! 
(Please excuse my babble-LOL)
