Collaborations ROCK!

So I have to tell you - one of my most favorite things about the Craft & Hobby show this past week was all the COLLABORATIONS I saw. So many of the top manufacturers were teaming up with other leaders in the industry to produce something extra special. It was such an amazing thing to see!

And we at BasicGrey consider us especially fortunate to get to be a part of such a collaboration. Introducting the new BasicGrey inspired CORE'DINATIONS collection of cardstock! Aren't these patterns just incredible?

I absolutely ADORED working with these papers. The added texture they gave without being overly busy was just divine. And YOU get to control just how much of the texture you want to be visible simply by sanding more or less. Fantastic!

Here are a few samples using these beautiful papers combined with some of BasicGrey's new releases:

Stay tuned for one more AMAZING collaboration still to be announced. If this one didn't drive you mad and running for the scrapbook stores, the next one will ;)

Happy Thursday!

I'm so glad you posted this. When I saw your layouts featuring this new product, I thought it was the colors that coordinated with the different paper lines, kept wondering how the coordinating embossing was added. LOL!
