*****************CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU!!*********************
Today I get to share something really exciting with you! Not too long ago, the amazing Jennifer McGuire at Hero Arts asked if BasicGrey and I would participate in their upcoming "All-Star Paper Week." And of course, we both jumped at the chance and said "yes!" And now that time is here!!
Not only are we going to be sharing projects and showing awesome ideas for using our products in conjunction, but we each will have awesome giveaways to share on our respective blogs! Be sure to keep reading to find out more!
First, is the project I created using BasicGrey and some awesome acrylic stamps from Hero Arts. As alot of you know, I "faux-stitch" on my layouts all the time (no sewing machine and too lazy to hand stitch anymore!) and when I saw these border stamps, I was immediately in love! How easy-peasy do they make it??! I especially love that they can be curved to create a wavy pattern like I did here with hardly any effort at all! And these owls? Who could resist those? Definately not me! They made the perfect compliment to the quirky, fun vibe of our Offbeat line!

Now, here are some projects from the uber talented Hero artists. Tami Hartley created this with BasicGrey and Hero Arts. Tami said: "I fell in love with
this large scale pod-branch patterned paper from Basic Grey's Offbeat
line when I first laid my eyes on it. I wasn't sure how I was going
to use it on a card, but once I got it home I decided it might be fun
to use for a holiday themed card. (I think the colors from Shari
Carroll's fabulous shabby chic creations were still fresh in my mind!)
To achieve the look I added a strip of stamped snowflakes, a seasonal
framed sentiment, a few pearls --- and voila -- a quick holiday card
with lots of impact!"

Jennifer said: "BasicGrey continually amazes me with delicious papers
that I just have to have. And many of their paper lines work well
with Hero Arts. When I saw their new line, Urban Prairie, I couldn't
wait to use it. And the Hero Arts background stamp is perfect with it!"
