Basic Grey!

I loved reading all of your comments about recycling and being GREEN! It even gave me a few more ideas of ways I can better help the environment! Thanks ladies for your input! CONGRATULATIONS to: Anna Jordan! You've won the Basic Grey Earthy Granola collection! Send us an email with your shipping info so we can send out your goodies!

Speaking of Basic Grey... We are expecting the new Basic Grey in stock very soon! Have you had a chance to get your hands on the "springy" collections of Green At Heart and Kioshi? I just love the colors of both collections and love how they pair so well with each other!

Designer Andra Hoffman has been working with both of these collections and I just love what she has done with them!

This is a picture of Andra's adorable granddaughter at 3 months old! I love how the Basic Grey Green At Heart papers really match with the photos of Ella!

Andra used both Green At Heart and Kioshi for this layout and I absolutely love how it turned out!

Break A Leg Layout - by me!

I used Basic Grey Kioshi for this layout of my daughter in her high school musical - Honk. The colors were perfect for the theme! I used a Basic Grey sketch and modified it slightly to make it my own (as usual!)

Stay tuned for more Basic Grey projects! To celebrate the new collections coming soon, we are going to have Basic Grey giveaways this week! Leave a comment below about your favorite Basic Grey collection - old or new and you will be entered into a drawing to win:

  1. I have to say the Basic Grey Earthy Granola is so beautiful. Nice subtle colors.

  2. Floren, I love how you did the title, and those flowers are so cute! Great layout!!

  3. Love the layouts - so pretty! I would have to say Sugar Rush is one of my favorites, although I do love Nook & Pantry, too.

  4. I've loved Basic Grey forever...you will still find original collections of Dawson, Black Tie, etc on my shelves. However, I've been doing projects (recipe books) using Nook & Pantry. Love your blog & great ideas.

  5. Fab layouts, ladies! I dearly love Basic Grey and don't think I can pick a fave but let's see probably Mellow is an all time fave plus Wassail, so yummy, and Porcelain and can't forget Blush and Scarlet's Letter .. shall I go on? LOL No need to enter me in the drawing though. I did have a couple of projects posted on the BG gallery before they changed it recently. I used Archaic and Indian Summer on those!

  6. Great layouts, I'm always interested in others uses of the fab BG. Sultry was the first collection to really catch my interest. Luv the florals and the color scheme.
