By the Sea ATC Tag Album - Graphic 45
Happy Good Friday everyone.  It's a lovely warm and sunny one here in the UK.  
Following on from yesterdays post this is the little ATC tag album that hangs in the bottom of my Punch and Judy box.  Its so cute at 3 1/2" tall and was great fun to decorate.  I used elements from both 8 x 8 and 12 x 12 papers for the front of each tag and then the stamps and Denim Blue Adirondak ink to add a little detail to the back. 

Here's a few more pics of each tag:  


and here are the backs.



We had a great time last night celebrating with Sian & Amie.  Oh to be 21 again lol!! Here they are with their Birthday Cake that Andy (the Crafty Elf) had arranged for them.  I've never seen one like it and it tasted soooo good. 


I'm off to Colemans Craft Warehouse in Rushden tomorrow to run a couple of workshops.  Looking forward to seeing you all.  
Enjoy your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again soon :-)

  8. Hi Clare, like many others I too haven't seen the tags album before either and it looks so cute. Before i try one of those i really must finish off a larger one that i am doing for my great nephew of his visit to Beamish at the end of last year.!!! The lovely Graphics 45 Sea papers and stamps arrived the other day and i can't wait for my eye sight to improve after an op so that i can get cutting and sticking as my partners refers to my 'crafty attempts'. Happy Easter. Hugs Pauline A x

  9. Good evening Clare, I'm just loving the tags album and have to say your Punch & Judy "theatre/box was just fab. I'm pleased to say I now have my full set of By The Sea "stash" and intend to make good use of it over the coming couple of months once I've drooled over it and stroked it a couple of hundred times. Thanks for sharing this project and your photos of course (both girls look stunning). As you say Oh! to be 21 again - I just wish I could remember that far back. Enjoy the rest of your evening and Happy Easter to you and yours.

  11. Hi Clare, Very pretty tags for the album, By the Sea is a gorgeous collection, and edged with denim blue it complements perfectly.
    Beautiful piccies of the Birthday girls', and the cake looks fabulous, I echo your sentiment 'Oh to be 21 again', it seems such a long time ago but 'only yesterday' if you know what I mean !!
    I'm in full swing Church mode this week, I have been helping clean the Church today, it looks gorgeous in readiness for tomorrow. I will be up very early for the dawn Service at 6.30, then we have breakfast at Church afterwards, then home and get ready for the 10.30 Service, I really love the Eastertide services but they are so 'emotional'.
    Have a lovely Easter.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
