The next item I made for Nicky is a little tag booklet with small concertina pouches inside. This project was in the Craft Stamper magazine and I just had to have a go at it. I must say mine didn't turn out as I wanted / thought it would - but it was my first time, so maybe I will have another go sometime in the future.

I cut the tag booklet template out of some card which already has a sort of bluey mottled effect to it and then I used a little distressed ink on it. I decorated this using Cat's Life Press stamps and rusty brown stazon ink.

For the concertina flaps inside, I made 5 little folders/pockets from the same mottled cardstock and then used some green distress inks and gold glimmer mist to colour them. I used some chipboard letters which I covered in distress ink and then I triple embossed them - spelling out NICKY. I attached these onto the front of the little folders. For the inside of the little folders I cut some white cardstock into squares and used blue distress ink to colour them. I used various Cats Life Press stamps, mainly pictures on the front and words/quotes on the back.
