This year I'm hoping to make a concerted effort to get that stuff out and use it more frequently.
(Full disclosure, I also have a lot of new stuff that I haven't used either....we'll talk about that another day.)
So lots and lots of oldies here, but interestingly enough my jumping off point was the two leaves. They are from my new Calathea set. They are the inner images associated with the leaf from this card. But here I'm using them more like leaves for the flower, which is an old Webster's Pages embellishment. The leaves were stamped on some patterned paper (also old) with rock and roll stamping for the first layer and then a sold dark color for the inner layer.
The next piece I picked out was the journaling card, from an older Maggie Holmes collection. Then came the little envelope (super old Studio Calico), with an acetate heart (even older Heidi Swapp) stapled in place with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
I wanted to dress up the journaling card a bit, so I added some old MME Luxe rub-ons. The sentiment is from my Dala Horse set and was stamped with Versafine. To make sure it didn't smudge, I heat set it and a fun surprise, the heat caused the rub-ons to bubble up a bit. I loved the fun texture it added, so I went ahead and heated up the rest of the rub-ons.
I added a few patterned paper mats and stitching to finish things off.
So fun to get out the old stuff and put it to use! I'm hoping to do this more often this year.
That's all for me today. Have a great start to your week!
