RSVP by Valerie

Valerie Mangan loves working with our new Glassine Bags on her layouts. Valerie says, "SRM has a size for every project - that is the answer to my crafty prayers! On this page I used a bag to store a collection of little printed notes I put in my son's lunch box everyday. Each day I put one in the lunch box with my own little handwritten note on the back. I never expected him to write back to me but he did. Now I look forward to them. They are sweet little notes that I can't bear to part with - so I'll use this layout to collect them."

"The glassine bag was perfect for storing the notes and my sheet of journaling. I embellished the bag with a die cut frame, twine and SRM school-themed stickers."

"Here is a detailed photograph of what is inside the bag - the collection of notes and my journaling sheet. Love that the bags offer a location to hide journaling; I don't need to worry about squeezing it onto the layout if I have a lot to say."
