This & That Friday + Winner!

Happy Friday, all!

I don't know about you, but I am SO excited it's almost the weekend. I'm looking forward to a little R&R and soaking up some sunshine.

I have a bit of odds and ends to share with you today.

First, I wanted to share that the latest BasicGrey newsletter, Just the Basics (July, 2010), is available for viewing! There are tons of good things to see in there and this month's featured collection is OLIVIA! For my part, I did a fun little twist on such a girlie line using my boys, cupcakes and a fab sketch from PageMaps by the awesome Becky Fleck! I absolutely love all the fun details in this line from the banners to the ribbon sticker and everything in between. My boys on the other hand just loved the cupcakes!

Supplies: BasicGrey Olivia PP, Small Details, Element stickers, alpha stickers; Fiskars border punch; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

And as always, we featured our regular sketch column. This month's sketch came from our digital template section of where they are available for just $1.00 each! Since banners are all the rage right now in the craft industry, I thought this adorable sketch was particularly appropriate! There I was joined by three other fabulous designers - Candice Greenway, Jamie Haley and Cari Locken. I really hope you'll check out their work here as well!

This is my take on our sketch. It features the fabulous Oliver line (a new fave!) and my new advanced scouts.

Supplies: BasicGrey PP, alpha stickers, Pieces, Element stickers, clips; Fiskars border punch; Uni-ball signo pen; Pentel pen; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Moving on...I am also thrilled to announce the lucky winner of the super cool Green at Heart Canvas & Candle kit from Paper Fashions Boutique. A huge congratulations goes to: Kelly (from Minnesota)! If you would email me at kelly(dot)goree(at)gmail(dot)com, I'll send your information right on to Lisa! Enjoy it!

But don't feel discouraged if you didn't win! I have something that will cheer you up - a little something JUST for YOU from BasicGrey. Right now, for about the next 4 weeks, BasicGrey is offering FREE downloads of all our blog backgrounds and blog headers! Yes, I said FREE! How fun is that?! Simply click here and load up your cart...and have a ball blinging out your blog!

And finally a little PSA:
BasicGrey (or at least the Maddy, our Sales Manager and I part of BasicGrey!) will be at Archiver's Scrapfest at the Mall of America on September 17th & 18th! We would absolutely love it if you could join us. From what I understand we'll be doing make-n-takes as well as full classes. I'll be teaching a three single-page layout class featuring the awesome Max & Whiskers line and on rinse & repeat for the two solid days! Here is just one of the layouts that Archiver's featured on their blog:


Oh...and you didn't think I would go without adding this, did you? :)

Have a fantastic weekend!
