Manufacturer Spotlight: Basic Grey

Scrapbook Circle kits always include a variety of manufacturers, and this month Good Cheer includes a bit of Basic Grey that we knew you’d love. I asked creative team member Rebecca to share with us how she used Basic Grey in the main kit to create a layout, and I joined in the Basic Grey love with a holiday card. But first, Rebecca’s fun layout (controversy-free!).

Rebecca cut four 5×5 squares from Basic Grey patterned papers and created this cute grid. Two squares for the title, one for the journaling, and one for a photo. Easy-peasy! The machine stitching gives it great texture and added detail. And don’t those papers look great with the red cup?

These gold glitter dipped tags are also Basic Grey. Perfect for journaling or gifts!

In the Count on It add-on, there is a package of Basic Grey Juniper Berry embellishments – washi tape, jingle bells, cording and twine, plus sequins. I used a little bit of everything to create this Christmas card:

I used the gold twine to string jingle bells across my card front. If you tilt the card side to side, they slide back and forth and make a sweet tinkling sound!
