Couture Swatch Book

It was so simple to put together this little swatch book of tags for Alpha Stamps with the lovely new Couture paper from Graphic 45.  For a complete list of supplies I used you can take a peek right here.

There are so many lovely prints of paper in this line.  I really love all of the darker papers, they make the imagery pop.

As I often do in my work, the edges are colored with black distress stain to give each layer dimension and make for a finished piece.

The ribbons used throughout the project are mostly from Alpha Stamps.  They have a great selection of seam binding which is super affordable.

The postal stamp images made for quick embellishments on these very simple tags.

To keep my book together I added vintage metal eyelets to my tags to reinforce the holes.  A book ring was then used to string it all together.

Thanks for tuning in!  Sorry I have been off the map for a while, but I am hopefully back and in the swing of things.  My creative mojo hit a little slump for a bit, it happens to the best of us I suppose!
