The gorgeous colours in Basic Greys "Hello Luscious" line certainly lives up to it's name. Vibrant and pretty, this double sided paper has one side mainly floral in design and the other the gorgeous shaded plain colours that Basic Grey is famous for, Caz started with the Title Sticker and built the page around it. Cutting out daisy type shapes as embellishments and anchoring them using stems to the title.
Then adding the journaling in brief strips to the top and bottom of the page. The photo is not a great one as it was taken into the setting sun but it's a fun memory of Mothers Day that Caz wants to remember in years to come.
Jane has used the BasicGrey Life of the Party ice cream headache paper as the card base, then layered getter bigger and block party papers on the front, she then cut out a banner strip from house party paper and placed this at the bottom. BasicGrey Alphabet stickers was used for the sentiment and string was tied that the top. Jane found that the woodgrain design in all these papers made it easy to keep continuity.
Jane was inspired by the tape measure design in BasicGrey Life of the Party How you've grown paper and created this card. Hero Arts HAS-CL452 Sew Stylish stamps were used. The other elements that Jane used were an old dressmakers pattern paper for a ruffle down the card and a bow that was placed under a Prima flower.
We may have said it before, but it wouldn’t be a BasicGrey post without some Nic Howard mastery. These are some of her CHA layouts from earlier this year. The above layout makes stunning use of the teals and oranges in the Hopscotch range. We love how she has made each individual circle stand out by matting them on black, which she carries through with black matting throughout the page.
If you like the brights, then Lauderdale will be right up your alley! Wonderful for showcasing those summer photos we might not have got to yet and perfect for teens and preteens. Clearly Nic found great use for them on her boys above.
Sweet Threads is as pretty and soft as Lauderdale is bright, but Nic says it has deeper tones in it that you can pull out if you need some contrast in your page. And see the accordion flowers? They come pre-made. They’re called Wheels and you need to see them in real life to see the detail in them! Clever, BasicGrey, clever!
Special thanks to Aussie scrapper Nerida for sharing this gorgeous layout using Basic Grey's "Hello Luscious" line. The photo is such a dreamy one and the handcut flowers and leaf sprays, stitching, misting and distressing frame it beautifully.
We would like to say a big thankyou to Jenny from Texas for letting us share this fun Easter layout with our readers. Jenny has used the "Hello Luscious" range from Basic Grey which matches the photos of the bright eggs and the outdoors perfectly. We love the unusual layout design which Jenny has managed to incorporate 6 full sized photos in. Giving a great overview of the Easter Egg hunt.
In this sweet nostalgic layout, Jenny from Washington, USA shows us that those same papers that make vibrant Easter layouts also work well with more subtle vintage photos. Gorgeous layout Jenny, thanks for allowing us to share with our blog readers.
Helen Jolly does the most wonderful fussy cutting - the patience of this woman amazes us. Helen really gets the most out of her BasicGrey Eva collection sophisticated girl papers by cutting around the images and layering them on her cards. This technique makes the intricate designs stand out beautifully.
Here is another set of delightful cards by Helen, not so much of the fussy cutting but another great way to get the most out of the BasicGrey Cappella collection of papers.
