My bundle includes items from the Retro Fresh collection in the 2014 Occasions Catalog: Peach Keen Stamp Set (#133113), Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape (#133001), Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags (#133526), and On Film Framelits Dies (#132969).

Using these items, I created 3 fun (and quick) cards for you:

This card was created with one of the Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Cards.  I'm not sure why the term "Huzzah!" hits home with me (maybe it is because I still remember it as one of my spelling words as a kid), but I just love it!  I wanted you to see that the journaling cards don't have to just be for scrapbook pages or pocket style scrapping.

 For this card, I used two of the stamps from the Peachy Keen set.  The "frame" is from the On Film Framelits Dies.  If you look carefully, you can see the texture the die left on the frame.  Just one more little element of texture.  :-D

My last card features the washi...all of them in the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi collection.  I also used the dies from On Film in this card (including popping one of the set of arrows up a little).  

I hope you have enjoyed a few different ways to use some of the Retro Fresh collection.  Don't forget that with every $50 spent - the approximate price of my bundle - you can choose 1 free Sale-A-Bration item.  Can you tell what is my favorite item?  The Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  It even made an appearance on a couple of my cards here!  

Now it is time to hop on to Bree's blog and see her wonderful creations!  Thank you for visiting!!!
