BasicGrey Featured Designers!

I think this is a super fun idea that BasicGrey is doing at a couple of great websites. We have introduced a brand new feature we're launching both at and Two Peas in a Bucket. At each of those respective sites each month, we will select a different talented designer whose work with BasicGrey papers and products really catches our eye. We think great work deserves great recognition and we want that person to be you! To become one of our featured designers, here's all you need to do:

* Become a "friend" of BasicGrey if possible or if you haven't already.
* Post your projects or layouts to your gallery on their website.
* Relate the BasicGrey products you use to your project post.
* That's IT!!

It's truly that easy! We'll do a search by a random product line or product and find all the wonderful talent out there using it. And if your design catches our eye, YOU could be next! How fun is that?!

We found some amazingly talented designers during our first search and I hope you'll join me in congratulating the first round of Featured Designers.

From SCRAPBOOK.COM, we are pleased to announce SIMONA MONTANARI, Satriales Girl for her gorgeous use of Lime Rickey!

We absolutely loved her use of so many different patterns of Lime Rickey (there are five – count them, FIVE!) into one cohesive design. The beautiful thing that ties all of them together is the large scalloped yellow square that gives the eye a place to rest visually yet still imparts wonderful color and style! To find out more about Simona or how to be a featured designer for BasicGrey at, please visit our blog.

Thank you so much, Simona, for sharing your talent with us!

And from Two Peas in a Bucket, we are excited to showcase this amazing designer, ALLISON (Ally) COPE, thecircleguru, for her amazing use of the WISTERIA line!

We absolutely love Ally's use of WISTERIA in this amazing circle format. Those rolled the paper strips really allowed her to create wonderful dimension to her design that gave not only great texture but the ability to use so many patterns without overwhelming her photo or project. Incredible! And check out the detail - even her owl is made up of the Wisteria paper!

Thank you to you, too, Ally, for sharing your incredible talent with us. To find out more about Ally or how to be a featured designer for BasicGrey at Two Peas, please visit our Two Peas blog!

Remember, the next featured designer could be YOU, so get to linking up those projects!
