Basic Grey Inspiration and a Sneak Peek!

Happy Wednesday! I thought I would share some inspiration with you today from our talented design team! Designers Sandi Clarkson and Leah Schaeffer have been playing with the new Basic Grey Oliver and Olivia collections and have created some beautiful stuff! Take a look:

Celebrate - 2 Page Layout by Sandi Clarkson

Sandi used some Basic Grey Oliver papers (Austin, Greyson, Joey, Keagan & Tate) to create these fun pages! I love the simplicity of the design! It really helps the photos stand out and the papers she chose are absolutely perfect for her theme!

Now let's see what Leah did:

Congrats from Beauty School by Leah Schaeffer

Leah made this card for one of her sister's friends that is graduating from beauty school. Leah used the Basic Grey Olivia 6x6 Paper Pad to create this card. The 6x6 Paper Pads have smaller designs and are absolutely perfect for creating cards, mini-albums and home decor projects! Leah chose the Candice design for her background layer because it reminded her of water drops! She also used her Cricut to cut the silhouette, scissors and title. Let's not forget the i-Rock for that bling!!!

Little Birdie by Leah Schaeffer

Leah had so much fun making the first card, she decided to make another one! She used Eliza for the background layer of this one. She stamped the little bird (Imaginisce Snag 'em Stamps) on McKinley, cut it out and adhered it with the flower on the die-cut. I love how Leah used Marabelle as the border on her die-cut; it adds some contrast and interest to her card. Great job, Leah!

Thanks so much for looking at Sandi's and Leah's work! They really did a great job with the Oliver and Olivia collections... what? You want me to get on with it? All right... check out what I spotted on Facebook yesterday! For those of you that have not seen:

Here is a sneak of some all NEW Basic Grey coming soon! I can't give away too much right now, but definitely be watching for more!

Happy Crafting!
