A love affair with BasicGrey

anyone who knows me from my paper scrapping days know that I have a bit of an addiction with BasicGrey.....I bought every single paper they released, and alphabets - I have plenty.  As I made the transition over to digital, I started to sell, donate or give to family many of my paper supplies, but one of the few things I could not get rid of was my BasicGrey.  It still sits in my paper rack, just begging me to use it.  I still do, creating a few cards or mini albums occasionally, but digital is really my creative outlet.  Naturally when BasicGrey started releasing digital kits I knew I could get myself in trouble with my credit card, but started picking up a few kits anyway and incorporating them into my designs.

The new BasicGrey Blog was introduced by Melanie with the announcement of a BasicGrey design team opportunity.    I sent in my application and waited (like many of you).  Well today, the wait is finally over.  I am a member of the BasicGrey Digital Design Team, and I am thrilled!!  I can't wait to share with you all of my creations.






here is a layout I did as part of my application....






Credits:  BasicGrey digital collections: Hang 10 Patterned paper, Vagabond Patterned paper, Perhaps Element, Phresh & Phunky Flourishes, Skate Shoppe Elements, Sweetpea Alyssa Notes.   Designer Digitals: Katie Pertiet vintage frame.

How fantastic Mary!! I did buy a BG digi kit just to see what it was like, but haven't used it yet! I LOVE the beautiful rock colors in that paper. There's nothing to match BG!!
