I Love Basic Grey.....

Well don't we all???? I have just bought 4 new 6x6 pads and I just love them all. But what I really love about BG is that is doesn't seem to date - I still love the older ranges -fruitcake papers for Christmas cards, and Infuse is one of my very favourites. Here is a card I made with this range;


I am on a mission to use up some card and paper scraps so I have been stamping to use up some card, and these papers were in my scraps box - which is constantly overflowing.

The next card was made using one of Sue's templates and a bit more BG. She insisted we use something sharp and some lace - such a hardship - these pins are my very favourite thing at the moment!


Have you popped over to Sassy crafts yet? It's a fabby website, very reasonable and Emma provides great service. Go check it out.

What a terrific way to use up the scraps, Sarah - fab cards - and as you say, BG papers are so 'undated' - love them!
