Scrapbook Tag Album

Next weekend we will be visiting with my mother who lives in another state.  I decided to surprise her with a small photo album.  I really like the look of small random bits put together to form a whole. 
For this project I used three different shaped scrapbook tags and one pocket with insert.  Each was use two or three times to make the album.  For each album page, I cut two tags of the same size and shape from two different papers then glued them together.  The pocket made its own page.  Each album page was two whole punched for the binder rings.  Then I added the photos and other random bits.

This project I cut with my Silhouette Cameo but it could easily be done without a die cut machine.  Each album page is 2.5" high.  I purposefully made the length of each page/tag a little different so that elements would show down through the layers.  In general the album pages are 6" long.

The front page is a simple rectangle tag with trimmed corners on one side.  This tag came with my Silhouette Studio software but I have several similar tags among my scrapbook templates and punches.
The second page is the Cut Out Tag 1 from Bird's Cards which can be found here
The pocket with insert is the Library Pocket Tag from the Silhouette Online Store which can be found here
 The photo above is upside down and for the life of me I cannot make blogger load it correctly.  Does it drive anyone else crazy that blogger takes it upon itself to decide which way is vertical for a photo?  This was the first time blogger put the darn thing in 180 degrees wrong though.  No matter how I change it, save it, and upload it again, blogger sticks it in upside down.  So I give up but I like the page so I am keeping the upside down photo in the post.
 Here is another pocket (and this picture loaded 180 degrees upside down too). Happy crafting.
