Graphic 45 
Sun Kissed
Beach Tag Album 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Happy to share with you another 
#SimplyG45 project for this month, a cute 
Beach Tag Album featuring 
the fabulous Sun Kissed Collection!

I just adore any beach/sea themed projects.
 This collection is one of my favorites! 
Love all the pretty patterns and elements and 
especially the ephemera cards and 
chipboard pieces. They are pretty neat and 
make great embellishments!

I have used cutting dies to make this project as
well as the amazing matching Graphic 45
Tag dies. I love matting, and can you just
 imagine my delight when these were released!
The tags look so pretty with that
border around the matted piece.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Graphic 45 Supplies used:
Sun Kissed Collection 
Sun Kissed Chipboard
Sun Kissed Journaling and Ephemera Cards
Regular Ivory Tag Album
Regular Tag & Gears Metal Dies

Other Supplies:
Spellbinders Die Sea Animals
Spellbinders Die Seashells
Amy Design Die African Border
Flower Die
Making Memories Ribbon Punch Tool
Adhesive Foam Squares

Cut 2 tags from the patterns sheets and ephemera
cards for the back and front for 5 of the Ivory
tags using the matching regular tag die.

Cutting tags from the ephemera cards.
Tip: Use masking tape to keep tag in place 
when cutting over an image thus making 
sure the die doesn't move when putting it
 through your machine.

Cut a few die cut shapes using the dies mentioned.
Tip: Using one or two of the tags from the album, 
cut the border and sea shapes. This will make them 
stand out or 'pop' when adhering all the elements.

Cut strips from the pattern sheets for the
 ephemera cards. Punch a slot in the corner of
each using the ribbonpunch tool. Cut the strip
 in half, pull through slot,fold and glue.
Tip: Easy to slide the card in and out 
of the border pocket on the tag.

Cut the strips with wording from the pattern sheets.
Adhere the strip to the border pocket and add these to 
the pattern tag before adhering to the ivory tag.

Adhere the die cut elements and chipboard pieces 
with adhesive foam squares.
Tip: Adhering these with adhesive foam will 
give the elements more dimension.

Add sequins to the center of each flower.
Tip: It just looks pretty and it will give it 
that extra bling.

The back of the tags have not been decorated, 
thus you can add a photo or use it for journaling. 

Cut two small tag elements from the
 pattern sheets. Add string and make a bow. 
Tip: Add string to some of the other
 elements too for that finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Papercrafting!

  1. These are gorgeous. Love the die cuts. Got to find them. I live at Pensacola Beach, FL so I'm always on the lookout for beach related items and crafts. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.
