1-France Tag

The tag pocket contains journaling and information on the photos. I added Gold Stickles Glitter Glue by Ranger Ink to the edges of the pocket.The layout and tag was scanned with an Epson scanner.

How to make tag pockets on and for tags.
You can find some of the templates on my Pinterest board.

I traced some of my templates with a permanent marker on opaque flexible plastic cutting board sheets as used for cooking. I got them at a Dollar-store. I then cut them out.
I punched holes in them with a hole-punch and hung them from a shower curtain ring. You can see more of my hints here. Nikon D70 ©


I scrap-booked three 12″ x 12″ pages in February 2016. The photos are of my husband when he went on a business trip to France in August 2002. The third page has a pocket for mementoes and a tag pocket. My inspiration was “Paris at Epcot ” by Susan Stringfellow, from the Better Homes and gardens. Scrapbooks etc.magazine of August 2004. I used rubber-stamps to make the background pattern. Nikon D70 ©


Some of the Wood mounted rubber-stamps that I used were Stampin’ Up! Travels Abroad (Retired Stamp Set). World traveler, Text, Disney Castle, “Time Flies”, etc. by Inkadinkado, Musical Score by Recollections, “Memoir”, excursion”, “Forward”, “Archive” and “Autumn” from Acey Deucy, “Vision” by Stamper’s Anonymous.The clear acrylic stamps I used were International Intrigue” by All Night Media-Plaid.

Some of the other supplies I used were Gold Stickles Glitter Glue by Ranger Ink, postage stamps, ink-pads, Cardstock, ribbon, brads (brass paper fasteners), Fridge magnet, 3 D pop dots, etc. The font I used for the title is Bradley Hand ITC.

Some of the tools I used were acrylic blocks, paper trimmer, a scoring board (optional), hole punch, a bone folder (optional), paper piercer (optional), ruler, scissors, etc.



I always try out my stamps on a piece of scrap paper before stamping onto my projects. You can see more of my hints here. Nikon D70 ©

I always sign my work at the back, and cover the backs of the Brads (brass paper fasteners) with adhesive tape, so that I don’t damage my scrapbooks. Nikon D70 ©

  1. I love the clever idea of making the background out of rubber stamps. You would never find a background paper that suited so well.

    • I have actually done this a few times before, the secret is to buy stamps that you can uses in many different layouts, like text, musical score, etc. I am thinking of doing a post about it. Rubber-stamps must be one of my favourite tools.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
