"Just the Basics" - June edition

Hello, everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic Friday!

I have a few things to share with you today, the first being that our June edition of BasicGrey's "Just the Basics" is now available for your viewing pleasure. :) Simply click here or if you prefer, you can get the newsletter directly to your inbox starting next month. To do that, either visit our Facebook page and click the "Newsletter!" tab or visit our website and sign up there. Any back issues you've missed can also be accessed at our website via the link provided.

This month we featured the gorgeous wedding-inspired line, Cappella. But I want to show you that it doesn't just have to be limited to weddings or special occassions. For my sketch, I used it to scrap Turner's 1-year smash cake portraits. I love how this line looks with black & white photos. So very rich!

Here's my Layout:

Supplies: BasicGrey Cappella, Bling it on, Element Stickers, Mini Mono Stickers, Micro Mono stickers, Lace doilies, and chip sticker shapes; Pentel pen.

And the BasicGrey Digital template it was based on. There are about 15-20 digi templates in our digital section and they're awesome. We even include a tutorial in BGTV for those of you new to using templates.

I also wanted to put out there that my friends at Bazzill have let me know that they still have some spaces available for this year's Creative Escape. By visiting www.creativeescapeaz.com it is easy to find out info about the event and how to sign up. They have some absolutely spectacular teachers, fabulous projects, unbelievable sponsors, delicious food, wonderful surprises, and really good times. As a past teacher, I can tell you that this is an experience of a lifetime! You'll love every minute and I do hope they'll see you there! :)

And last but not least, I'll be teaching locally this weekend and there are still a few spots available. If you're in the Louisville/Lexington/Frankfort area in Kentucky, I hope you'll come join us at Memories ala Mode - the best little LSS around! You can contact the store at (502) 695-3477. Tonight's class is a Boy's Triple Double - three double-paged boy-themed layouts featuring BasicGrey's Max & Whiskers. Tomorrow is an all-occasion card class and an all-about-me mini album class!

Have a wonderful weekend!
xoxo,
k.

FYI, I tried to visit the site for Creative Escape and got a big ol red warning message from my anti-virus software! The site is considered "unsafe!" I just thought you, kelly, might want to let the Bazzill your friends know that people might be trying to sign up, but are afraid to go on the site.

Thanks for sharing that with me, Steph. I just went out and checked the link myself and didn't get a notification at all from mine. It goes directly to the CE website. I'm sorry that came up for you. I'll definitely let them know, however.
