Our last challenge is to make a Brag Book of the nine tags that we created over the last nine days. It can be bound by rings, as displayed by Dymonz, or by using a Cinch or BIA or other wire binding device. The tags must be in the Brag Book in the order in which they were created over the nine days. There must be a way in which you display/provide the recipe for each tag. You must have at least one cut from a die-cutting device -- Cricut, Cuttlebug, MS Punch, etc. -- whichever one you use doesn't matter. You must create a cover which utilizes a sentiment and an image stamp and the acrylic paint resist technique.

For my brag book, I cut chipboard and covered it with Prima Marketing Paper CoIllection. I used an Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Snow Cap for the edges. I inked the sentiment with Frayed Burlap, the flourish in Faded Jeans, then inked both the front and back covers with Wild Honey. On the words "Enjoy the Journey, I used Glossy Accents over them. I double stamped the sentiment phrase on the patterned paper and adhered it to some chipboard and pop-dotted it off the cover. I added some rhinestones and mulberry flowers layered with a brad. To bind my book, I used Tim Holtz Grungeboard hinges fastened with brads.
For the inside of the brag book, I made pocket inserts that I cut patterned paper , used a MS border punch for the edge.
I made one pocket for each of the 9 tags and taped them together with red liner tape. I also made recipe tags for the pockets so the that I can write down how I created each tag. If someone wants to look through the book, the can find out how each tag was created.
I attached a Metal Key that says "Journey" with Hemp Cord.
You can see it in the left of the picture of the book below.
