When I saw Tim Holtz’s post this morning, with his August tag, I knew right away I would need to be creative. I did not have most of the supplies he used, but he is a great encourager of creativity, so I determined to make do with “what I have.” And, in all honesty, “what I have” is quite a lot. (She who dies with the most crafting supplies wins, right?—just kidding of course.)
I started with a black #8 tag as the background. On top of that, I used a sheet of Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (Cut & Emboss Series). I embossed it with a bookplate texture fade in the Vagabond. I sanded it lightly, cut it to fit the tag, distressed the edges, and then inked it with Vintage Photo. I made my own sentiment on the computer, printed on kraft paper and inked the edges.
I used my Cricut Heritage Cartridge for the silhouette cameo, cutting from black card stock, covering it with Distress Embossing Ink, and heat embossing with clear powder. The Prima flowers, baubles, trinkets and lace were pulled from my stash.
Loving vintage, heritage-type projects, and this tag will likely make its way onto a larger project in the near future.
