Stamperia Brocante Tag Mini Album Tutorial for Wonderful Wednesday Tag of the Month

Hello, Friends!  Today’s Stamperia Brocante Tag Mini Album Tutorial is our Wonderful Wednesday Tag of the Month.  In case you missed my announcement last week, I will no longer be doing Make & Take Tuesday or Throwback Thursday videos on a regular basis.  Instead, we have initiated Wonderful Wednesday tutorials.  We will continue our Tag of the Month, Banner of the Month, Birthday Card of the Month and Flower of the month tutorials in this new schedule.  This way, I can enjoy weekend activities with our grandchildren.  It’s a change I’m very excited about!

Stamperia Brocante: An Antique Shop on Paper

If you’re a fan of “junkin'” or “picking” at flea markets, antique shops and thrift stores, I think you’re really going to enjoy this new collection from Stamperia.  It’s just like visiting an antique shop on paper.  Filled with images of old silverware, china, teacups, teddy bears, pocket watches, cameras and millinery, it’s a treasure hunter’s delight.

I wanted to create a sense of joyful adventure right from the start, so I “antiqued” a resin frame with paints, mists and wax.  Then I turned it into a shaker element filled with old keys, pearls, beads and sequins.  Should I dress up the cover with an antique silver spoon?  Why, yes!  I think I should!   What a fun way to begin this crafty adventure.

Flip Down Tag Album

Tags make me happy.  They are versatile and lend themselves to all kinds of crafty ideas.  For this tag mini album, I wanted to create a really fun binding system that opened in an unexpected way.  Hence the spine on the bottom design of this flip down album.  There are some fun surprises on the inside, too, as you will see in the video tutorial below.

If you’d like to see more of this lovely paper collection and follow along as I create this fun tag mini album base, you’re in luck!  Grab a cuppa and a snack and join me for a tour and a tutorial over on my YouTube channel.

Did you enjoy that?  I certainly enjoyed creating it!

You can find a linked supply list below.  And if you’d like to purchase the finished album, you can find it in my Etsy Shop.

You’ll also find a lovely TAX RELIEF sale in my Etsy shop from now through April 15th.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!

    Oh my Kathy, what a wonderful project! The tiffany lamp is a blast from the past. The hinge mechanism is perfect for dimensional tag pages, one can play with layering ephemera etc. I particularly like the way you used soft pretty ribbon closures, it is like opening a parcel on every other page, a lovely idea indeed.

    Didn’t realize how amazing and beautiful this tag album really was until I watched the video. Thank you for always giving us such great ideas! Come June, you’ll really want more free time to spend with even more grand children!

    Wow Kathy! This tag mini album is absolutely stunning. I love the depth and richness of the colors and images. I especially like your beaded spoon and dress form with the fancy tassel. The inside is just as exquisite as the outside and the vintage sentiment is just perfect! Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation! Hugs!

    Hi Kathy, good for you. Making the decision to spend more time with your grandchildren is the best, I am so sure that you won’t regret it. Also it’s not like you are giving up your passion for good. As usual your tag is absolutely stunning. I spend hours with you, watching your YouTube videos and they have inspired me so much. Enjoy your grandchildren as they grow up too soon.
    All the best to you Kathy,
    Kindest regards
