Tuesday Trigger: Soup to Nuts

I haven’t played with a Tuesday Trigger for a looooooong while now, but as soon as I spied the Soup to Nuts trigger on World Cardmaking Day I just had to give it ago! Why? Because it instantly reminded me of this BasicGrey paper!

First off, the trigger! Love. It. Seriously.

And, here’s what I came up with!

I used my typewriter to type “hi there” on some graph paper — to go with the graph paper behind the letters in the trigger. Then I cut up the BasicGrey paper to spell out “Chris” — this is a card for my sis. We’ll see if she is reading this, HI CHRIS!!! ha.

I put it all on a long kraft notecard that I stamped with polka dots — to bring in the circles from the trigger. Next I used a new Kelly Purkey stamp to stamp “with love from me to you”. And of course I had to add a little wooden typewriter. :)

I’ll try to get a better photo tomorrow — had to get this one to make the deadline! Now I’m off to bed! Zzzzzz….

    This is super cute! All the different elements just came together perfectly. I like the background and the wooden typewriter, especially! As for the typewriter, I had a pale green one similar to yours. It had it’s own cute little case and I used it in college and it traveled with me to my first teaching job!
