Just A Note To Say ...



I recently did a huge paper purge that included going through years of various monthly scrapbooking kits. I've subscribed to one kit or another for the better part of the past seven years, so there were a lot of remains to sift through, plus a few kits that admittedly hadn't been touched at all. Most of the embellishments had already been removed from the kits and stored with their kind in various places throughout my studio, but I did stumble upon a few random items, including a fabulous acetate film strip. I love it, and couldn't wait to incorporate it into today's card!

The felt stem is also an oldie-but-goodie, from Prima I believe. I threw in a ticket strip and some torn vellum for an eclectic look. The sentiment, from Reverse Confetti's new and fabulous LOTS TO SAY set, is stamped on a label die-cut, also an old kit remnant. Kind of nice to put some forgotten things to good use! In fact, the background paper, from Jillibean Soup, is the only new/current thing on the card.




Here's a closer look:
