Well, I decided to do something about those bits (mostly so I would not have to re-file them! :-) ) Usually I find it quicker and easier to create with a specific manufacturer line but today I threw caution to the wind!
Here is my very quick layout using Pink Paislee, Imaginesce and American Crafts!
Supplies: Pink Paislee (pattern paper, die cuts); Imaginesce (chipboard); American Crafts (rub ons, alphas, pen), ribbon (source unknown), googly eyes (source unknown)
So I encourage you to mix and match between manufacturers - you may be surprised by the results (like I was!)
