I've Been Playing Tag

I haven't posted many cards lately, because I haven't made many.
I've been a little bit busy with this...........

I have entered this for the Bramwells Paper crafting Challenge. The paper was lovely to work with. It was full of foiled cogs and robots. I've called this book 'Boys Toys' and I'm going to fill it with pictures of all the 'boys' in my life and their various 'toys'. My brother, dad, and hubby always seem to have some kind of machine or electronic gadget to play with.

It is made from 5 A5 office envelopes bound with a punched border and then bound with my Bind it All and it has huge tags in each pocket. It was a challenge for me to make a book on a more masculine theme, but these papers were just great to work with. Many of them were really fun images and it was a shame to cover them up. That's the real challenge of being a confirmed Paperstroker  I often can hardly bring myself to cut these gorgeous papers up, let alone cover them when I do!!

There are lots of envelopes and pockets for tags and spaces for journalling. Here are e few more pictures showing the various pockets, tags, flaps and pull outs.

The papers are called Blips and Beeps. Other than the papers in the kit, all I used was Bazzil , a few Kaiser craft rub-ons, some HOTP journalling stamps and a few brads and page flips.

So, there you have it. It just occurred to me, that it fits in with the OCC challenge 'Tag you're it' since there are at least 20 tags in it!

Right, what next..........
