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 […]
