SunKissed Layout

     Graphic 45's "Sun Kissed Collection" is used here to scrap some Destin Beach pictures.

     An unusually shaped tag is made using two stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet. The "Set Sail" and "Fun in the Sun" tags are from the pattered paper. All three buttons from the sticker sheet were matted and ivory seam binding added .

     A faux postcard was made using one of the 4 x 6 pictures. I place acetate over the picture, then used Stazon to stamp a postmark. I mounted a stamp sticker on a stamp die cut. The collage under the picture is made up of fussy cut images, mounted stickers, a bottle cap, a button with seam binding, and a couple small sea shells.

     For the title I used a journaling card cut from the patterned paper. Another collage under this consists of matted stickers, burlap flower, a punched button, purchased flower, and a sea shell.

     I trimmed a 1/2 inch ecru strip with fish tail cuts at each end and placed several banners across it. I used a strip from the patterned paper "Building Sand Castles and Memories" over the top of it. I finished it off with more flowers.

     Two tags made using the patterned paper.
