I will completely own up to the fact that I hoard scrappy supplies for far toooooo long. Like these adorable journaling cards from Crate Paper’s Toy Box collection, circa spring 2011.
Yes….I still have them.
But you just never know, right? Sometimes old stuff comes in real handy. Take now, for example….when my brother was young, he was fascinated by trains. He spent countless hours building ho scale model railroad layouts, complete with trains, tracks, and scenery with villages. My dad even built him a wall cabinet that folded down into an elaborate train table, and after that, he expanded into the rafters of the garage. So when I needed a birthday card for my brother this week, these long lost accent cuts seemed just the ticket. Sometimes I’m glad that I hoard.
This card truly is a bit of a hodge-podge. Besides the Crate Paper journaling card, I used three collections by Authentique. The papers are from their new Anchored line.
The Celebrate All Day stickers are from last year’s 4th of July collection, Pride.
I saw so many adorable designs based on Retro Sketches #101 last week, that I couldn’t resist playing along. You all are just SO inspiring!
