Mini Tag Album with Karen Reategui

Hello shiny friends! Today I'm over WOW! Embossing Powder sharing this mini tag album where I used WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and lots of scraps and ribbons.

Let's shine! I started by die cutting several different sizes of tags and bookmarks. The largest tags were from Pinkfresh Studio Essentials: Classic Tags with Fillable Elements Die Set. I used a patterned paper pad Bible Journaling from Recollection.

I used many stickers that I added in almost every tag. Some of them were glued at the back with cardstock to make them more firm.

I'll have a video on my Instagram showing every single tag and you will notice that I applied  ink at the back of some tags. Stay tuned. 

I love using ribbons on my projects and this was a perfect time to add some texture and contrast to these tags using ribbons.

I die cut the word love and applied on top WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it using WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter, then I added a stripe of acetate at the back.

Additionally, I heat embossed a piece of cardstock using WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and die cut the Jesus Loves You from Mighty Stamps. I also die cut the shadow die from white cardstock.

To add more sparkle to each tag I added different butterflies.

I used a stencil and applied WOW! Embossing Pad in top and heat embossed it using WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter. I added some stripes of sentiments from Illustrated Faith and some butterflies also heat embossed using WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter.

I die cut the word Kindness and placed it on top of this bookmark.

The tassel and the Swivel Claps was the perfect touch to this mini tag album. And to finish it I added six different types of ribbons to the ring.
I hope you liked my project and give it a try. You will enjoy all the process of this fun album. Have a wonderful day.



  1. What a lot of tags Karen and a labour of love I can see. I love all the sparkle added to sentiments and butterflies and also through the stencil, all great ways of adding that extra something to a project. Great work! x

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
