Aimee's "Christmas-land" Mini Tag Album

Hey Fairytale Club Fans, this week our Design Team Members will be sharing some of their favorite projects they created this season using our 2 Christmas Kits “December Dreams” & “Christmas-land”!

First off we have Aimee with a Mini Tag Album using “Christmas-land”.


Hi there, Aimee here!

Have you all seen the Christmas-land kit? You know the one Andrea and Carolee did a workshop with.

Well it’s even better in person. Like way better! It’s so awesome, I made my husband take me to Disneyland on Christmas Day, just to take pictures so I could use the christmas-land kit and make this Album TRUE STORY!

And this mini tag album came out WAY better than I could have ever dreamed! For this album I used 2 of the 12x12 papers from the kit “Christmas at the Park” and “All I want for Christmas is a castle!” and some bookmark tags from my stash.

I printed all the photos I wanted to use with my Instax share printer. I cut up the 12x12 papers into the 3x4 journaling cards. I also used a few of the tags too.

I then placed the 3x4 cards with the bookmark tags and photos. Once I was happy with which tag went with what photo and what card, choose die cuts from the die cut pack that went with each pile of cards. When everything was placed, I adhered the photos to the bookmark tags. You can find a video of this on my YOU TUBE Channel.

I then stamped each photo with a different sentiment form a roller stamp. I also embellished each card/tag with puffy stickers and stickles to give them some added depth. Once I was happy with all of the embellishments, I punched a hole in the top of each card/tag.

I choose the “all I want for Christmas…” Journaling card as my cover for this album.

I attached a decorative pom pom paper clip to the top. I then placed all the cards on to a large binder ring and this created the album.

To create the bell dangle, I used a tassel from my stash along with some jump rings. I added 1 or 2 bells from the Christmas-land Variety pack to each jump ring and continued until I had used all the bells. I just love this addition to my album.

I also made some shaker tags (with my fuse tool and all the goodies from the Christmas-land Variety pack). OMG I love these. I think by far this was the best addition to my mini. This was the first time making this type of tag, and I think it turned out so AWESOME. I just traced the bookmark tag with a sharpie, I then ran my fuse tool (against a ruler to keep my lines straight) on the inside of the sharpie, I fused 4 sides before adding all the goodies, and then sealed the tag from the top. To make the hole (so it would be closed and the glitter wouldn’t come out) I burned a hole through the sleeve with a rounded tip.

Do you enjoy making Mini Albums?

Solange's "December Dreams" Tags

Hey everyone, Solange here with another project using the “December Dreams” kit. I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season with tons of crafting.

In today’s project I made two tags which you can use as decor in packaging or include in a tag flip or just send as a goodie to a penpal.

To create the tags I simply cut them out of the 12x12 papers using another tag from my stash as a guide. Tags are super simple to decorate because they are small and therefore you’ll only need a few things to dress them up.

For the first tag, I fussy cut the reindeer from the cut apart sheet and then just added two ephemera pieces to finish it off .

For the other tag I fussy cut a tree from the cut apart sheet and the big tree from the dashboards. I glued the big tree right onto the tag but I added foam tape to the smaller tree to make it stand out and give the tag some dimension. I also added the cute fairy from the ephemera pack on foam tape to make her the center of attention. To finish it off I added the beautiful tassel that came in the kit which gives the tag some texture and an interactive element.

I hope this has inspired you to make some cute and easy tags using your “December Dreams” kit and I’ll see you next time.

Xoxo, Solange .

Aimee's Tag Flip Mini Album

Happy New Year! Aimee here, and today I have a super cute little mini album for you.

1.JPG

I can’t resist a mini album! And when I saw the 12x12 “Key to the Kingdom” and “The Fourth Realm” Papers from the “December Dreams” kit I knew I was going to make a mini!

The point of my mini is just to highlight some of the magical moments from the Christmas Season. Plus, I love to print photos with my Instax Share Printer. These little minis are a great way to use those photos.

I started by cutting up the 12x12 papers into the 3x4 cards. I then paired each 3x4 card with a bookmark tag.

I laid out all the 3x4 cards with the bookmark tags. I printed my photos and placed them on the tag of choice. I then embellished each photo and bookmark tag with die cuts and little bits and pieces. I dated my photos with a date roller stamp. I also love using my tiny stapler to attach things, it’s the perfect scale.

I choose one of the cards to be the cover and embellished it. I bedazzled all my 3x4 cards with stickles {glitter glue} to make them POP!

The pom pom paper clips are great for extra embellishing. I actually cut the back of the pom pom off so it would sit flush when the album is laying down. I also stapled it to the cover so it was secure. Don’t forget the Key to the Kingdom, I added a spilt ring to the key so it could be a charm

For reals, this is the easiest project! The whole album only took me an hour to create assemble {minus the dry time for the stickles}!

Do you enjoy creating mini albums?

XOXO Aimee

Project Life Instax Album - December Daily, with Aimee

Happy Saturday all, can you believe that there is only 9 days till Christmas. Wow!

This year for my December Daily, I’m using The Project Life, Instax Album. This is a fun size to use because you can use all different sizes of page protectors. The biggest bummer about this album, is that it’s a traditional album style, and there are no pockets for extra little trinkets like tags etc.

When I saw the Library Card Pocket form the “December Dreams” Kit, I just knew it was perfect for the inside of my album.

I used my typewriter to fill out the card, and it’s perfectly imperfect. Just like a library card would be. I choose myself as the author, cause I’m the one creating this book {look I totally messed up and put my name on the wrong line, did you even notice?}.

I choose the title of the book to be “December Daily 2018”. And for all the check-out days I but my name and date that I worked in the book. I love how I mixed it up with the red and black writing {you know, as if someone else was doing the checking out?}. I even forgot to capitalize the A on one of the lines.

I also made some tags to slip in my DD using die cuts and the sequin mix from the “December Dreams” Kit. I just used my Fuse tool, metal die cuts to trace. I placed the “ingredients” inside of the fuse sleeve and placed my metal die over making sure all the “ingredients” fit within the die cut, and just fused around it! Viola . . . some custom tags!

Are you using the “December Dreams” in your December Daily?

XOXO, Aimee

Solange's "December Dreams" Happy Mail Tag Flips

Hello crafty friends! Today I am showing you guys a happy mail project using the “December Dreams Kit”.

Tag flips are one of my favorite ways to send happy mail because it’s easy, fun and super cute! All you’ll need to make your own is a metal ring and your “December Dreams” kit, that’s it !

If you do not have any metal rings on hand you can just tie the tags with some pretty trim which will work just as well.

To make this tag flip I used the dashboards that come in the kit and fussy cut some of my favorite images such as the ballerina, the house and the pretty blue Christmas tree. For the pieces that I fussy cut, I simply punched a whole and added it to my tag flip, simple and super cute.

Then I added some extra pieces that I cut into tag shapes and decorated them up using the beautiful ephemera pieces.

Super easy and cute project, can’t wait to see what you guys will make with your kit. Until next time, Solange.

Michelle's Halloween Banner

Hey there, crafty friends! Michelle here, and I’m back with a new project using the Magical and Mischievous kit from The Fairytale Club! I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to be one of those people whose home is decorated for every season. And since I spend so much time in my home office, I thought I would take this kit of magical Halloween goodies and make a cute banner for my bookshelf!

I started by selecting five patterns from the 12x12 sized pages and cutting them into the banner pieces. Then I selected three cards from the cut-out sheet that coordinated well with the patterns I chose.

Then it was time for the fun part, which was to add all the trim and ephemera! This step always makes the biggest mess but it is also the most fun! I spread all the bits and pieces across my desk, and through trial and error, I see what works best.

I really like to play with different textures, which is something you can see in this project. Most of the banner pieces have cute ephemera bits, as well as some sort of textured elements, such as ribbon or the ever-so-cute pom poms!

After each banner piece was all done, I laid them all out and used hot glue to attach them to the orange and white string I happened to have on hand. Being a crafty lady is so fun! You never know what kind of supplies you may find in my stash.

The final step was to add the mini pom poms to the strand, and hang it up! I love how this came together, and it adds a little seasonal touch to the office!

I hope you enjoyed this fun and festive project! It demonstrates just how versatile paper crafting can be and I hope this inspires you to try something new. Happy crafting!

Making a Tag Album with Kellie

Hi there everyone, Kellie here.  I'm back again to share a little creation I made using the new "Hello Beautiful!" Kit.

2018-05-12 16.19.55

A little tag album!   Have you tried one of these?  They are so fun to make.  This is only my second time making a tag album and won't be my last.  Not only that, I also got to use a bunch of older instax photos I'd been hoarding for years of my three girls.  Almost all were taken with my instax camera before I got the instax printer that, may I add, I absolutely LOVE to bits.

2018-05-12 16.21.14

Where do you start when making a tag album, you might ask?  for me it was all about the photos first. I start by grabbing a bunch of photos.  After I know I have enough photos, I sit with the kit and photos and work out what suits what and which matches and get the idea on how I want to go about it.  Then the fun part really starts - cutting up the pattern papers to make the tags!

2018-05-12 16.21.47

I work section by section or tag by tag.  I like to have everything laid out in front of me on my desk - all the ephemera, die-cuts, stickers and flair.   I really do make quite the mess, but having everything laid out helps to see what I have, making it easier to move things around until I'm happy with the result.  The "Hello Beautiful!" kit all works together so beautifully, I loved working with it to make this album.

This mini tag album came together so well and the kit is absolutely beautiful, which made working with it super easy. 

Dianna's Monthly Planner Spread and Tag Place Holder

Hello beauties! It’s Dianna, and I’m back this week to show you how I used the “Hello Beautiful” kit to decorate my monthly spread. I also made a tag page marker!! Here we go: 

For the left side of my monthly spread I started by filling the empty spaces with some yummy layers of paper from the kit!  At the top I used a piece of the Fairytales paper and two die cuts (the pink flower and the word die cut "Spring"). At the bottom I used some of the vellum and layered it with aqua and a “You are beautiful die cut”. The vellum is a new addition to the kit this month! It’s gold foiled and gorgeous! Under that I glued some frilly laces and then added some washi above and a couple of stickers where I had important dates. 

On the right side of the monthly calendar I used those flower die cuts. They are my all time favorite!  Under them I layered more of the Fairytales paper (both sides! It has a wonderful handwritten look text). Some more trims below, washi and a bow die cut I used as a sticker to mark a date! Here’s a look at the full spread: 

I also created a tag page marker! 

This tag is super cute! Used my favorite Fairytales paper again! I just measured it to be a little smaller than my actual pages. Layered on some of the black polka dot and the back of the aqua paper. This flower I cut from the “Enchanted Forest” paper and of course added some more lace! Above the layers I added the word die cuts and that cute birdie(another fave!)  I punched a hole in the top after adding a heart punched from one of the papers and strung some pretty trims through! These look lovely coming out the top of my planner!!! 

Here are a few detailed shots: 

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!! 

Xoxo,
Dianna
 

Lilly's Tag Flip Book

Hey guys!! This is Lilly coming to you with my very 1st design team project!! Yay!!! "Hello Beautiful!" has def made me step out of my comfort zone. I don’t normally use reds and blues in my creations... But you guys, I love how it turned out, and I hope you guys do, too.  I decided to create a tag flip book since those are always so much fun to make.

So for the first tag I used the white and black polka dot paper and inked the edges with pink because I love doing that to a bunch of my projects. I added a mint green doily in the center to give it a pop of color, then placed the the die cut words “hello beautiful“ on top and also added some ephemera pieces. I took 2 butterflies and sewed them together for some dimension. I almost forgot! I also sewed a zigzag line all around the tag - I just liked how it looked. To finish the tag off I added some enamel dots and bright yellow pom pom trim..

Next tag I decided to go with a sewn tulle shaker because it’s quite popular in the crafting community, so why not.  I used the pink with red roses card stock because I love it so much and it stands out. Finished it off with a cute bow and a Pom Pom in the middle and the die cut word "fairytale."

Tag #3 is a pocket I created with the gold foiled vellum sheet and added two ephemera pieces to decorate it .. I also added some gold sequins to the middle of the rose. Doesn’t it look so cute??

Tag #4 I used the lovely deer paper.  I also inked the edges like all the other tags and decided to give a pop of color using royal blue crepe paper, some rhinestones, and a bow ephemera piece. Then I added a mini doily and placed the big deer on top. Finished it off with enamel dots and the word "beautiful."

The last tag is pretty simple but I still love it so much!  It’s using the script card stock paper, with one of the card stock cut-aparts and a mini yellow doily sneaking behind.  Finishing touches are word cut aparts and some enamel hearts..

Well I hope you guys enjoyed my 1st project! Stay tuned for many more.. Happy Crafting you guys!
