TAC Scrapbook Minis

I finally got around to taking photos of all my TAC scrapbook mini kits that I have put together. These kits are decieving in the catalog and aren't showcased very well so I figured it was about time I got what I have done into a slideshow so if you haven't seen mine in person yet, you could see how each kit can come together. These kits are all on double-sided cardstock so you choose your cover and how each page layouts with the next page. Even the cardstock embellishments are double-sided. This means everyone that puts a kit together will be a little different based on the choices you make. You also choose how to bind your kits. I have done mine with book rings and ribbon but there are other options like a wire binding using your Bind-it-all machine or get extra creative and look at what you might find to work in an office supply store. The great thing about these kits is they really are easy to put together and won't take you more than an hour or two. For those that have bought TAC kits and have yet to get to them here are some tips:
1. When popping out the parts from the large sheet it comes in, be sure to pull from the side and not push down or pull up as this could tear into the paper.
2. Sand off any nubs to make it look more polished
3. Look at other embellishing options to enhance the cardstock embellishments and/or to add more texture and interest. I used paper and felt flowers, brads and ribbons.
4. Don't forget you can add an even more unique touches to it by using some coordinating inks and stamps that fit your photos.
If you have any questions or would like some suggestions while you are putting your kits together, please call or email me! :)
