Welcome to the BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop **CONTEST NOW CLOSED**















****CONTEST WINNER ANNOUNCED AT BOTTOM OF THE POST****

Welcome to the BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the blog of the talented Shannon Tidwell and I know she had something amazing to share with you!

The Serenade Collection captures the refinement of bygone years, where tea was served with crumpets and your dinner guests retired to the parlor for sparkling conversation. Full of refined grace and delicate simplicity, you’ll love adorning your projects with Serenade’s layers of petticoats, bustled tea gowns and prim parasols.


Supplies: Serenade Patterned Paper, Mixed Brads, Petals, Element Stickers. Other: Pen, Adhesive, Mod Podge, Scalloped Heart Punch

I made this super-fun project using the gorgeous SERENADE Collection and one of the BasicGrey unfinished 7x7 frames. As a side note I adore these frames anhd have several in both the 7x7 and 12x12 sizes! And while I'm not usually a home-decor type, I absolutely adore the colors in this line (that that they match my office/craft room is a double bonus!) and wanted to give something different a try. I created the rosette from the Petals package and clustered them with a few more Petals flowers for a totally feminine feel - See! VERY different for me! ;)

And I can't share a "coming soon" project without giving you a chance to win some of your own. So how about the chance to win a full Serenade collection pack  or 6x6 paper pad + embellishment of your choice if you prefer! Simply leave me a comment here in the comments section to be entered to win!

If the chance to win a collection pack is exciting, what about the chance to win one of each product in the Serenade collection?  We thought you might be interested!  Simply head over to the BasicGrey Facebook page and let us know your favorite product in the Serenade collection!  A winner will be selected at random from all comments received today.

Next, it's time to hop over to our last blog for the day, the amazing Shari Carroll and see what she has in store. Remember, if you find a link that doesn't work, you can always hop back to the BasicGrey blog for a list of direct links to all of the blogs in the hop.

Have a wonderful day and good luck!
xoxo, 
k.
