Beach tag

Tim Holtz/Sizzix Patchwork Texture fade snippet

I was inspired by C. who used the Graphic 45 paper from the On the Board Walk line.

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.

Gold embossing

The xtra tag with gold embossing

Dry embossing and glimmers

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

Vintage haberdashery

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.

My favorite: daiper pins "Curved for Safety" 

Below you can see some more of the backing card.


Plastic buttons

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...

 Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Kit Give Away 

So go check out her  

Obviously a Tim Holtz fan

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.
