New Additions to BasicGrey Staff AND a Television Debut!


(Kaysville, UT. January 18, 2007)
March, 2007 will mark the television debut of BasicGrey as The Home Shopping Network (HSN) welcomes BasicGrey to their impressive on-air roster.

Along with this TV debut, BasicGrey is proud to announce two fantastic additions to their team of enthusiastic employees! Both employees bring years of scrapbooking experience, and their assets will assist in meeting the high-quality demands of HSN.

Kelly Goree joins the BasicGrey team full-time as a Staff Designer, a position where she will be a driving force in designing layouts, classes, teaching events, and trade shows, as well as HSN events. Kelly was a 2006 Memory Makers Magazine Master and has had over 200 published works in major scrapbooking publications. She has served as a freelance designer at BasicGrey since 2005. Kelly resides in Kentucky with her husband and three sons.


Dana Smith is slated as BasicGrey’s new on-air personality and spokesperson. Dana has been a designer at BasicGrey since 2004 and has taught scrapbooking classes all over the United States. She has been a guest on Suzanne Walker’s “Fiskar TV” show, and she received an Honorable Mention in the 2005 Creating Keepsakes Magazine Hall of Fame contest. Her enthusiasm and energy are assets to BasicGrey! Dana lives in Minnesota with her husband and three energetic children.


BasicGrey disregards all conventional standards of design, with patterns and page elements that are edgy, stylish and ideal for the on-the-go scrapbook artist. Our innovative designer collections are anything but basic,
combining pure inspiration with craftsmanship to create an exceptional portfolio of high-quality, unique and creative products that will inspire all levels of scrapbookers and paper artists.
