Beach Tags on the Graphic 45 Blog

Today I'm up on the Graphic 45 blog today with some fun beach tags featuring the new ivory square tags and Voyage Beneath the Sea paper.  You can head over to the Graphic 45 blog to check out the rest of the photos of my project as well as fellow design team member Sandy who has also created a summer themed project.

For this month one of our projects was creating a project that took under 60 minutes and with it being in the month of  July, summer and heading to the beach was the first thing that came to mind. Even though the first official day of summer is in June, but here in Calgary, Canada, we have had summer weather since May. These beach themed tags, are perfect to dress up a gift bag or give as a card to a family member or friend. By mixing the different patterns from the Voyage Beneath the Sea paper pad, it gives each tag a unique look. When the tags are side by side they compliment each other beautifully. Hopefully these tags will inspire you to dig into your paper stash and create a few of your own.

Tip: Add Glossy Accents to eyes and other parts of the images on the tags to highlight certain areas.

Tip: To get the base paper on the tag to go around the eyelet at the top, use a ½” circle punch to punch a hole. That way the paper will go right over top of the eyelet.

Supplies Used:

- 8x8 Voyage Beneath the Sea Paper Pad
- Voyage Beneath the Sea Ephemera
- Staples: Ivory Square Tags
- Distress Ink: Vintage Photo
- Blending Tool
- Edge Distressor
- Glossy Accents
- Seam Binding Ribbon: Dark Turquoise
