Another Basic Grey Kit


These pages were made using the Basic Grey Sweet Threads Page Kit.  It was another splurge for some quick, easy, and different pages.

Layouts from Basic Grey Kit

Spring has Sprung:

Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit, 3D foam tape, Prima Inspiring Creativity flowers, and KaiserCraft Pearls.
Fussy & Fancy Challenge #43 – Use a Lot (pearls!)


Heaven Sent:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and KaiserCraft Pearls.


Bloom & Grow:
Supplies used: Basic Grey Kioshi Page Kit and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

These pages are all from the same kit and that’s all you get but I do have lots of diecuts, rubons, and chipboard left over to make more pages or cards.  For me it was a worthwhile splurge because it made some quick, easy, and cute pages.

May 2011 CTMH Blog Hop – Buttons

Welcome to yet another Close to My Heart Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring buttons.  CTMH has many new button shapes that are absolutely adorable!

The hop forms a circle so if you are starting here, simply continue until you make your way back.  If you are coming from Nikka’s blog you are on the right track.

Supplies used are all CTMH: Cherry-O Paper Pack, Love Letter Rub-ons, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon, and Buttons-Pink Assortment.

As you can see from the supply list, this was a very simple page.  The scattering of buttons draws attention to the title.  The idea came to me in my sleep – just drop a handful of buttons and let them be.  This turned out to work well, giving a greater sense of randomness.  The button at the top of the page with the ribbon is strategically placed to cover up a person in the background of the photo.

Now hop on over to Tracy’s blog!

If you get lost along the way, see the previous post for a list of all the participants.

Makin’ a Splash Layout

Supplies used: KI Memories Surprise Collection paper, Making Memories chipboard flower, Fiskars border punch, Provo Craft alpha rubons, and K&Company adhesive chipboard.

This was my layout from the March Challenge at Scrap Our Stash that I forgot to post.  The  challenge was “Spring Cleaning” – meaning dig something out from your stash, dust it off, and use it!  I pulled out all the stops with this layout.  Everything I used is old, old, old and I literally had to dust off my border punch!  I used a sketch from My Little Sketch Book.  I just love sketches!  I’ve found some great sites lately and plan to use them more.  They make scrapbooking so quick and easy!

Summer Swim Layout

Supplies used: DCWV The Glitter Stack papers, Recollections Glitter Adhesive Borders, PC Stand-Outs, Heidi Swapp rubons, Me & My Big Ideas chipboard stickers, and misc buttons and dew drops from my stash.  I used a Sketch Inspiration Sketch.

The Monthly Challenge on Scrap Our Stash for April is “Bring in the Sun”.  I don’t know why this was so hard for me but I am very happy with the outcome.  First, I was stumped for what I was going to do.  I looked through my stash and didn’t have “sun” anything.  Then I found swim pictures and thought I would focus on the color yellow (one that doesn’t make it into many of my layouts).  Then, I added my own little mini challenge to not use pink. 🙂  In the end, I love the layout.  I think because it is so different and that will make a nice addition to my books.  Go over to Scrap Our Stash and join the challenge!
