Tim Holtz/Sizzix Patchwork Texture fade snippet
Memo pin with star shell holding mini post card
Little Glimmer Misted Sizzix sea shell die
Pic and almost invisable punched border
I adhered the pic like a pocket so the tag with the gold embossing could be tucked in.
The xtra tag with gold embossing.
The upper part of the Beach Tag shows a vintage holiday ad for the Mediterrané.
I tried making a video with my webcam, but don't know if it will upload to my YouTube channel.

I found some haberdashery items some months ago at our local flea market.
Saturday I found some plastic buttons to add to my growing collection. They have a rose in the centre.
The Buttons reminded me of the Favorite Findings Lace Treasures buttons. The buttons on the card are see through with some gold paint accents. Love my buttons.
Below you can see some more of the backing card.
The ribbon has an elastic cord you can pull to gather.
I'm not sure how they used it in those days. It will make a nice touch to a mini album one day. I just love these soft colors.
Doesn't October Afternoon got the colors of the thrift shop stickers just right compared to the real thing? I need to get me the according paper pad aswell I guess...
Added accents with Stickles
Tag (the ones you can buy over here) stamped with Archival and clear embossing ink. I used the clear embossing powder as I don't have a lot to choose from yet LOL I kinda messed up, but now it think of it as a shadow effect. I used stickles glitter glue aswell.
I used the rusted grunge technic from the Compendium of Curiosities by Tim Holtz
on the chipboard I cut with the Hardware Findings die.
I embossed the cut out with tea dye as I couldn't fund the vintage photo powder. Could you believe I used my toaster? Ah, forgive me being a newbe. I just bought my heat gun and Crop-a-Dile last week. It's more expensive in Europe and we don't have those % off coupons.
