Happy Holiday’s Crafty Friends! Hope everyone has made it safely thru the holidays. I had previously started this ATC Tags album I created using Graphic 45 Le’ Romantique Collection from Graphic 45.
Beginning The ATC Tag
I began by choosing 6 tags from the package of 12 of the ATC Kraft Tags from Graphic 45 that was sent to me along with this gorgeous collection. Then, I chose the papers that I wanted to use on this album. Starting out by tracing out the tags onto the papers , I then cut them out then used my EK Success 1/2 in. circle punch for the top hole of the tag. Once I had all of the pieces cut I distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink with a dauber.
Finishing The ATC Tags
I then used liquid adhesive to adhere the papers onto the tag, once I finished adhering all of the pieces, I went over them again lightly with the distress ink. Then I began to embellish the tags by first adhering a piece of thin ivory lace from my stash, then added some Melissa Frances resin keys on every other page. Also using a couple of the chipboard pieces from the collection propped up on foam dots for dimension. Doing the same with the stickers I used but before adding the foam dots, I adhered the stickers onto plain white card stock from my scrap box, for added sturdiness.
I then added the dots then onto the tags also added some Prima Marketing Say It In Crystals onto some sticker/chipboard pieces. I had some black crocheted flowers in my stash so I adhered them on some pages then added chipboard to the centers of those. Finished off by taking one of the the stickers from the collection and adhering it onto Prima Marketing Memory Trinkets (Bourdeilles) charm & adding it to the album ring.
On the back of each ATC Tags, I added a piece of ivory card stock that can be used as a journaling spot or for a 2.5 x 2.5 photo. This project makes a wonderful gift, maybe altering a gift box using the same paper collection and some coordinating flowers would be great! I hope that you enjoyed and feel inspired by what I created. Till next time!! Happy New Year everyone! Stay Safe!
