Retro Rubber and the Retirement List!

Project Life, Stampin' Up!, Sale-A-BrationHello Stampers! It has been so much fun playing with my old embellishments again! Brads can really add that extra little touch to your cards. When did you last use your old stash of brads?? Well, I enjoyed it so much that I made another one and thought I would let you see it. This time I used some Project Life Sale-A-Bration cards and actually made a card from them. Don’t limit Project Life to just memory-keeping! I added texture with the Spring Flowers TIEF on the background. The focal piece is one of the 3’x4″ cards that coordinated perfectly. Then another card with the AWESOME sentiment was trimmed down to fit across. Once everything had a nice layer behind it to assist in making it pop, I added a current Candy Dot with the brad base onto one of the background flowers and added two retired brads to the sentiment layer. Sadly, I cannot find the name of these brads because they got mixed into a container of others when I consolidated my embellishments. There is always an upside and downside to keeping your beloved craft supplies! HA! Here is the inside that also used the Project Life card collection:

  1. Love the bright colors & flowers. Great tip to use the Project Life cards already sized for beautiful layers. I enjoy embellishing with brads, too. I still have some left like you used on the card. They are from the Everyday Enchantment line with one of my favorite retired In Colors, Poppy Parade. Great design, Debbie!

  2. Such a bright and cheery card, Debbie! I still have some of those brads also, just waiting for the perfect project!

  3. This is so cool Debbie, I love the bright cheery feel of your card and the inside was a wonderful surprise! Cx
