Going Grey with ScrapCreations


I am SO excited to share with you that my friend Kristen is now hosting a weekly blog which I am going to be a part of.  We all love patterned paper, but Basic Grey is one of our favorites!!!  Kristen's new challenge is called Going Grey with Scrap-Creations and each week she will be issuing a color, theme, sketch, etc. in which we will use our stash (or newly acquired) Basic Grey papers.



This is our first week and we were challenged with the theme "Celebration".  How could you not want to celebrate with us and Kristen's new venture with this fantastic challenge?  Join us and you may have the chance to win two packs of the newly released Basic Grey paper packs Green at Heart & Kioshi which is being provided by our sponsor of the week, Hope Stamps Eternal.

For this second card I incorporated two other challenges which was from Joanne B. for her blogaversary to  "Fold It Up" and from Allison & Sue to break out a neglected tool for the Everything Old is New Again Challenge.  I think I had to wipe the dust off my crimper to use it for this card, but I now have it out and vow to use it more than every 5 years.

Make sure you hop on over to the other Design Team member's blog and leave them a little love.  We hope you will break out your favorite Basic Grey papers and create with us this week!


Card details:
Stamps:  You Say it's Your Birthday from The Cat's Pajamas, Birthday Darling from Clear & Simple Stamps, Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink
Cardstock:  Basic Grey Off Beat, Bashful Blue, Real Red
Accessories: nestabilities, crimper, round tab punch

I totally love your cards. I really like the balloon off the main frame - so cool. I'll have to take a look at this blog. I do have a stash of Basic Grey dp. Love the crimping. I think I'll get mine out today and use it. Thanks for joining our challenge, too.

Love both of your cards. Had to laugh at the comment about dusting off your crimper. I used mine not too long ago when I made my paper flowers. It needed some dusting too. :) I'll have to break out some BasicGrey and join the challenge.

Both of your cards are sooo cute. I just love the penguin and the striped BG is a perfect choice. I could never have too much Basic Grey, I love the 6x6 packs! I have a crimper hidden somewhere too! Can't wait to see what you create for the next challenge.
