Summer 2011 Bucket List Mini Album

Hi!  Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway filling in at ShesASassyLady today!

I saw this tag book months ago and had to figure out how to make it!  It was on my list for a while.  At the beginning of this summer, I saw a cute article about a Summer Bucket List for kids.  I got to thinking about what would be on my own list.....and I remembered this project.  It was only fitting to use the book as my own Summer Bucket List mini album!

I started with a 6x12 piece of cardstock.  I scored it at 2", 4", 8" and 10".  The top of the paper measures 2 1/2".  I marked my center point and went 1 1/4" to either side and made a dot.  I trimmed from the dot on the top to the bottom corner on both sides to make this shape.

I used this K&Co. paper pad with 2 sided papers for my album.  I used two of each sheet and alternated folding them.

I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".

Here are all of my pages.

I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in each page.  With the Crop-A-Dile, you can punch through several papers at once.
I cut out some tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More at 5.25".  I hid the slit in the tag.
I used my ATG gun to glue down the flaps.

I also glued down the outer flaps.
I cut out summer 2010 from Lyrical Letters Loop Dee Loo at 1".

I put one tag in each pocket.  I tied ribbon around each pocket and stapled ribbon to each tag.  I also tied some ribbons to the rings.

Here is my Summer 2011 Bucket List Mini Album.  My tags will be filled with memories from Baseball, T-Ball, Organizing, 4th of July, Crafting and our annual vacation to the Ozarks!
