Good Tuesday Morning!

This is going to be a GREAT week. We are here, kicking of December with BasicGrey!

If you haven’t heard, we have a BasicGrey Core Impressions line that we just LOVE! There are TWO Core Impression packs in this line that are fabulous.  The Whimsy Collection is full of bright colors and whimsical patterns that match BasicGrey papers and embellishments. And the Ornate Collection has beautiful blues, greens and pinks that coordinate with BasicGrey papers and embellishments as well.  You will be seeing both of these collections in action this week along with LOADS of BasicGrey goodies, too!

Each pack has FOUR embossed patterns in FIVE colors totaling 20 unique sheets and we sell certain sheets individually as well.

AND if you haven’t seen it yet…we have our Tim Holtz Kraft-Core giveaway going on NOW! THIS GIVEAWAY ENDS TODAY!!!! We are giving away 50 packs and THREE signed copies from Tim himself.

Well, it is Tuesday that means we always try and give you a fun tip or technique and today Design Team member Melissa Oliveira is sharing two gorgeous layouts with us with some great ideas.  Melissa got to use the awesome Indie Bloom collection and isn’t cool how she made it festive for us? BasicGrey is SO versatile.

Melissa sanded the background of the BasicGrey Core Impressions to highlight the photo. She made the banner by cutting triangles from the back side of the BasicGrey core impressions, then mounting ot to the brown side (the right side) and trimming a scalloped border using Fiskars deco scissors.

Next up…a TREE from TORN paper!!! SO  COOL!

Melissa cut the small presents at the bottom of the LO  from the front packaging sheet of the Indie Bloom collection.  The prints are smaller on the cover art so they worked well for the look Melissa was going for (the full size prints would have been too big). The tree was made by tearing strips of the BG core impressions, then arranging with repositionable adhesive (from the Glue Glider Pro) and machine stitching in place.

    Really cute baby layouts! I like the way the paper is sanded more towards the middle not the edges on the greatest baby layout.
