I found myself happily working at the scrapbook store today, looking at Basic Grey's Halloween line, called, Eerie. I just stood there looking at this paper thinking, "Wow, I wonder what I could make with you?" I pulled all the racks off the wall and set in the floor looking at the different patterns and colors thinking about the endless possibilities this paper could create. I rearranged the paper and put it back on the wall in order of it's product code number and now I am happy with how it looks and I made room for more new Basic Grey paper that I was getting ready to put out.
I saw a really cute candy box on Basic Grey's online newsletter and decided to create my own for the store to display. Here is how it turned out. I have it up high on a shelf but it is filled the mini candy bars.
It's Basic Grey's newest release, Nook & Pantry. A very 40's and 50's kitchen themed line that is so dreamy! It has cupcakes, strawberries,doilies in every color, tea pots and bright fruits!
As I was making room for this paper line I found a lonely little bag hanging alongside packets of brads, as I got closer I discovered it was a Napkin Holder. Needless to say I knew immediately it was perfect for this paper!
Here it is! I have it supported on to hooks on the wall next to the line of paper.
A couple weeks ago I had to do my first product demonstration. I was teaching ladies how to create these beautiful tags! I really wish you could see the shimmer that they have! They are incredible! I don't personally own the tools to create these tags but as soon as I do I will show how to create these on the blog. Tim Holtz is the designer and creator of these products and techniques so you can hop on over to his website at timholtz.com to see a video on how to do this if you would like to try it too!
