Debi Ryan: Tag Book

Hi everyone, Debi here; today I'm sharing with you a tag card book that I created for a colleague leaving work. These tag books are pretty simple to make, and easily can be adapted for lots of different uses.
Front cover 
I've used the absolutely gorgeous and pretty unique Graphic 45 Voyage Beyond the Sea Papers. I just love this collection, vibrant in colour and details. 
My English colleague is returning back to the UK, so it felt appropriate to use lots of voyage and Kiwi symbols.

I also decorated the back inside cover with a few details, all the details have been added with chipboard and then painted and sprayed to blend in.

Inside Back Cover

Then onto the inside, I've decorated each tag, by sponging with Distress inks, various stencils and sparkly watercolour details to really make them pop. I used various sentiment stamps from my collection to complete the look.

I added a few photos of his time here in New Zealand, and left plenty of space for everyone at work to leave their farewell wishes.

Everyone loved it, and I love how it's created a real memory of his time with us.

Have a great week, as the leaves are falling and autumn is truly here.
