August Air Tag Kit

For my project I made some super easy tags using the Multimedia Crafts Digital freebie kit called, “August Air Tag Kit”.  Print out these three tags and combine them with other mixed media pieces.  To access the kit click here.

I also made a matching envelope that you can find on the Multimedia Crafts Digital Facebook page.  It is called, “August Air Envelope Kit.”

I included moss, a stick, and rope for my three prompts.  I garnished the envelope and tags with sewn dictionary page snippets glued to old Amazon packaging.  The tags were also glued to the same recycled brown packaging.  I used Tim Holtz Distress oxide inks to add color to the fussy cut out images.

Afloat Mini Ephemera Kit

Some of the embellishments were from the Multimedia Crafts Digital Etsy shop.  I used the kit found in the $1 Deal section called, “Afloat Mini Ephemera Kit.

I garnished the tags with some recycled fabric from an old shirt tied to the top with a jump ring attached to it.  Then i took some beach theme “spare parts” and let them dangle off the jump ring for each tag.

 

I formed clusters for pockets and added just a touch of sheen using Glossy Accents on the wine glass fussy cut and some Nuvo Drops on the sunglasses.  These tags and envelope made a cohesive unit of beach themed fun.

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
