My Other Creations: Scrap Tag Book using Inky Antics' Circles and Frames

"Frame It" is this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog theme.  I decided to stack up circles to create the frame opening in the center of this scrap tag book.

I started by cutting a tag out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and stamping/cutting out a circle and a frame.

I added acrylic paint and cut the circle down smaller.

I stuck some Tim Holtz Washi tape on the background, then glued the text frame and circle frame on top.

I stenciled on some white paint using Simon Says Stamps' Falling Snow stencil, then I cut some scraps out of Dina Wakley's Collage Collective book. I added more white paint back on and also added some bright pink paint and some teals/blues.

I glued on the scraps from the Dina Wakley collage book.

I wanted this to be a small booklet, so I needed to cut some pages.  Using the same tag die, I cut some pages out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper (black and white), Tim Holtz patterned paper, and a book page.  Once my pages were cut, I lined them up and punched holes in them with my Crop-A-Dile.

I used wax thread to bind my book together and it was done!

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
