Lets talk embellishments!

Hey Magpies, welcome to June! It’s Rachel here to start the month off and I want to focus on embellishments this month. I love embellishments, it’s the fun part of the layout aren’t they. When I’m building my layouts I pick my photo, choose the papers and build the foundation up, do the title and then I […]

May Sketch with Jillibean Soup and Basic Grey

This month I have a two photo sketch for you, although it could easily be adapted for a filmstrip style of several photos, or for one panoramic image. Theres plenty of space for a title and journalling, lots of embellishments, or just showing off a favourite patterned paper. I’ve used a selection of products from […]

Basic Grey Hillside

Basic Grey’s latest releases for 2016 came with the bitter-sweet news that they were going to be their last releases for papercrafting. I was especially sad to hear this as I just loved their Christmas release in 2015 – the style of it was really up my street. Happily, however, among the new collections was […]

Basic Grey – Urban Luxe

When Basic Grey announced that they would no longer be producing products for scrapbooking, it felt like losing an old friend. They’ve always pushed boundaries and been adventurous and often surprised me with some of their more strident and eclectic collections and the scrapbooking world has been all the happier as a result. Well I […]

Working with a theme – By the Sea

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my February blog post.  This month I decided to create a kit of supplies using the new My Minds Eyes By The Sea collection as the main focus.  I had the perfect set of photos from my trip last year to the US, when I went whale watching.  I had […]

Hi there Ladies, Sheena here again. Today i’m sharing 3 layouts i’ve made using the Basic Grey range Type Set. It’s no secret that I am a long time fan of their papers but if I had  1 wish it would be that I would really like them to produce ephemera for all their ranges. […]
