I'm not just *happy*, I'm absolutely JOVIAL!

How about a little Christmas in July??!

Introducing JOVIAL, a new collection by BasicGrey:
Snuggled in a flannel blanket by the glow of a fi re, watching the snow falling through the frosted window, BasicGrey’s Jovial collection is a warm celebration in white snow, velvet black, pomegranate, evergreen, and emberglow. A tapestry of holiday tradition—just like we always dreamed it could be.


For these layouts, I selected two entirely different color sets so you can see how versatile this line can be. This first one (of my precious boy under our tree this past Christmas) uses the more traditional and elegant papers in this range. The poinsettias are classic as are the beautiful reds, greens and ornament accents. (And I'm dying over how that green paper looks quilted! so cool!)

This second layout I went with a little more kitschy feel. I adore (read: love love love love looooove! I think it's the eyes that get to me?! Anyhoo...) these snowmen and wanted to put them front an d center in this layout about my boys' snowman, aptly named "Frosty." I know, clever, right?! I think this blue ight just be the most heavenly we've ever put out (next to the one in Marrakech!) and I find myself using it over and over again! And did you see that stitched brad? Serious cuteness!

Check it out! You get the snowmen on the element stickers! Love that - and like I said, the cute little faces on these stitched brads make me giddy! Truly there's so much about these releases that just make me happy (er, Jovial?!)
And those stamps? Build your OWN snowman? Come on! Love! I also these these office tabs are beyond precious and while they're holiday-ish, they aren't overly "Christmas-y" which extends their versatility.

And can you believe we're just half-way done with these sneaks?? Soooo much more to come. Stay tuned for Marjolaine and Curio!
I hope you're having a fabulous CHA kinda day!

I am NOT ready to think about Christmas yet, but this line has a great variety of color and intensity. Will be fun to work with.
