Basic Grey Marjolaine

Greetings and Happy Thursday! Today we have some inspiration for you from Designer Nanne Harry using the beautiful Basic Grey Marjolaine collection. I must admit, blue and green is my favorite color combination and I just love the bold, floral prints in this collection! What I really love about it is the versatility! It can be used for either masculine or feminine projects depending on what embellishments you pair with it! What's better than that? Let's take a look at what Nanne did with this collection!

Simply AJ who said...

My family always made sure to send out Thank-You cards or made special in person Thank-you's depending on the circumstances. I tried to raise my children with the same values and they have passed this belief on to their children. You are absoultely correct in saying "Never Underestimate the value of a Thank You"! Your cards are so beautiful and the recipient will definetly know the sincerity behind the words "Thank You"! AJ - queenofmynest(at)gmail(dot)com

Please send us an email with your shipping address by this Friday, January 21 and we'll send out your Basic Grey Green At Heart goodies! Thanks again everyone for playing along!

Never underestimate the value of a Thank You!

Hello everyone! I hope your holidays were absolutely amazing! I'm sure you've noticed that we've made a few changes here at Generations Crafting! It was a tough decision, but with our extra time we will be able to concentrate on customer service and doing everything we can to best serve our customers! We will continue to post specials, giveaways and our monthly contests on both our blog and Facebook so make sure to keep watching!

When I was a child, my mom would always force me to send a thank you card whenever I received a gift. I would come to loath the dreaded 'thank you' since I never knew what to say. I've grown to realize that it's not what you say that is important, but rather that you took the time to say anything at all! I've learned the value of the all important thank you note (thanks, mom!) and now I make sure to ALWAYS have thank you cards on hand!

From a simple thank you...

To more extravagant ones. Never underestimate the value of a Thank You!

So, let me know! Do you make thank you's? Do you simply call and say thank you? Did you learn the value of a thank you from your mom or mom-figure? Leave me a comment and tell me your own thank you story and you will be entered into a drawing to win one of everything I used to make my thank you's!

The winner will receive:
  • 5 Sheets of Basic Grey Green At Heart 12x12 Paper (Apple, Basil, Moss, Sage & Veggies)
  • 10 Sheets of Basic Grey Green At Heart 6x6 Paper
  • 2 Sheets of Basic Grey - Basic White 6x6 Paper
  • 1 Package of Green At Heart Cozy Posies
  • 1 Package of Basic Grey Bling It Rhinestones
  • 1 Sheet of Basic White Labels
  • 1 Sheet of Kaisercraft Thank You Rub-ons
  • 1 Embellishment Bag with a selection of Basic Grey Marrakech Buttons, Green At Heart Painted Brads and Bo Bunny Sheer Double Dot Ribbon
Leave your comments by next Monday, January 17 at 11:59 pm. We'll have a random drawing and notify the winner right here on the blog Tuesday, January 18.

Good luck and Happy Crafting!
