Well, I must admit I've never created anything outrageous with Basic Grey myself. I do love to alter though and I think I would cover just about anything with paper if I could! Thanks for all of your kind words for my mom's gazebo! She'll be happy to read all of your wonderful comments!
Did you know the new Basic Grey is in the store? You didn't? That's because I haven't mentioned it just yet. We have something extra special going on with a certain Basic Grey collection starting tomorrow, May 1. The newsletter will be going out shortly... you are definitely going to want to watch for it!
In the meantime, I'm going to share with you two layouts I created using some of the new Basic Grey collections!
Happy (birth) Day - by Me!
This is from my youngest daughter's (Ericka) 10th Birthday. I used Basic Grey Max & Whiskers! This collection is very versatile! You can still use it even if you don't have pets! I used the back side of Mittens and Elvis as the base of my layout. I also used the front side of Gretchen and Patches and punched the flowers from scraps of all of papers I used! I just love how it turned out - the colors are fantastic!
Cousins - by Me!
Another very versatile collection - Cappella! This is a picture of my daughters and my nieces taken at Christmas. I printed the photo in antique to soften the colors a bit for the vintage -inspired papers. Sepia and black-and-white photos would work really well with this collection as well! I used the back of Sonata as my base and added strips of Interlude (front & back), Mezzo (back) and Venetian (back) for the photo mat. The flower stickers are from the Cappella Element Stickers that I layered together and adhered with foam tape. Both layouts are adaptations of Basic Grey sketches.
