Exciting News!!!

Welcome to the BasicGrey Design Team Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the blog of Lisa Dickinson.

Someone pinch me! I have been asked to be a part of the BasicGrey Design Team! I am soooo excited! Like happy-dance-around-the-house excited! It’s all I could do to keep this inside and I’m so happy that I finally get to share this great news. BasicGrey makes the most beautiful products ever … the kind that you just want to run your hand across over and over and have a hard time cutting into because they are so beautiful on their own. I love how they elevate my projects and make my photos feel as special as they are in my heart. I am THRILLED as can be to be joining the BasicGrey team.

BasicGrey Lucille Collection: Collection Pack, Patterned Papers (Capri, Mini Skirt, Shift, Wrap Dress, Indigo Ink), Element Stickers, Printed Chipboard, Vintage Buttons, Snippets, Garland

I wanted to share a page with you that I created with my FAVORITE new BasicGrey collection… the Lucille collection. I adore the warm colors and vintage feel of this collection. On this page I clustered together the doily element stickers around my photos along with several of the printed chipboard pieces. How cute are those chipboard stickpins?!

I LOVE the vintage buttons in this set and sprinkled several of them around the page. The journaling spot was trimmed from one of the Snippets sheets. I used a small hole punch and my scissors to make the notebook edge look real. Finally, I used one of the smaller garland borders to weave everything together.

To celebrate the new design team, BasicGrey is allowing me to give away the amazing Max & Whiskers collection. I love this collection! The colors and patterns are PERFECT for all of your fall scrapping. For your chance to win, be sure to leave a comment on this post by 9:00 p.m. Mountain Time tonight.
