Before we jump in, as you know every Monday we have a new blog contest. What a great way to start the week! Here is the French Country prize pack you could win this week:

Let's start the day of beautiful projects with Sharon Ngoo's Olde Curiosity Shopp Star Tag Book! What a clever way to use the new Regular Tag Album from our Staples!

Let's follow Sharon on a tour of her album: "Here's a fun little book to make from the G45 Staples - Regular Tag Album. It looks pretty ordinary from the outside:

But flips open to form a star shape when viewed from the top:

Next, we have a gorgeous and meaningful mini tag album from Denise Hahn with a quick and clever tutorial.  "Last year I attended a mixed media art class with some of my closest friends. I realized the project I created was titled Secret Garden...so what better papers to create my little memory with? And you are going to love the new mini tags! For this piece I kept it simple. I just covered one side using all of the panels from the Secret Garden May Flowers sheet, and the other side just sprayed with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. This is a great project to use all of those little bits of trim you can't bear to throw away." ~Denise Hahn

Now, follow along Denise' Ribbon Binding Ring tutorial. Such a great idea!


1. Cut about 1 yard of ribbon. Start with the ring on the tags. Tie in a knot leaving a long enough tail to make a bow.

2. Start wrapping around and pulling snug.

3. As you wrap, the end with the know will naturally start to go through the holes.

Thanks for the inspiration this morning! I have 2 hours before work and thinking I will spend it in my "office". This collection will go very nicely in my kitchen redo.

I can't wait to get my hands on both of the new collections (am pestering my local stockist on a daily basis to see if it has arrived!) and I desperately need some tag albums! Would so love to win this collection xx

The tag album is a must have. What wonderful ideas to incorporate in my own scrapping!

Such wonderful ideas! And super nice paper! Thanks for the tutorials!

Really gorgeous tag books, love the papers and they are both so stunningly decorated, fabulous attention to detail
