These little tag books are great - they are the perfect size for wallet size or smaller pictures. Plus, they are quick to make, and they look beautiful! Here is the front cover:
For this first page, I used the Graphically Speaking cartridge for the 24/7, the heart, and "U" box. Incidentally, the Graphically Speaking cartridge is fantastic! It has some really unique images on it!
"Oma", which is what my kids call my Mom, comes from Opposites Attract. I embossed the background using Cuttlebug folder, and I slightly inked the raised areas and the edges of the paper. For the edges of the acrylic, I used a similar technique on all of the pages - I ink the edges with whatever kind of ink I have in the preferred color; then once that base ink was dry, I added clear embossing ink; then dipped the edges in Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). This creates a really cool effect on the edges. This effect also softens the edges literally! These little acrylic books have sharp edges, and by embossing with the UTEE is takes those sharp edges away while adding a nice color or just shiny effect. This is a closer picture of the embossed edges.
Here are the subsequent pages:
When I make these little acrylic books, I like to make sure that anything that shows through on both sides of the acrylic is pleasant on both sides. For instance, I typically don't have words that show through on the other side of any acrylic page because it will be backwards on the other side, and I don't care for that. But on the "D&K" page on the right, I put a scalloped border, and I put stickles in the little holes, and all of that will show on the back of the page too.
I also use double sided paper so that it looks nice on both sides of each acrylic sheet. On the family picture on the left, you can see the patterned paper and the scalloped edge showing through from the previous page. I cut the scalloped oval using Nestabilities.
I used the Soccer Solutions cartridge for the soccer cuts. On the right side, the little hearts came from All Mixed Up
