BasicGrey HIGHLINE + FREE Cut File

Hi, all!!

I'm here today to share my new layoutthat is up on the BasicGrey blog today! It features the gorgeous Highline collection and our fun new wooden shapes.  As an added bonus, we've included the fun cut file I created that I used as the background mat to this project. It's my first one so I'm pretty excited! Click HERE to download it.

Highline was one of my favorite collections we released this summer at CHA. I adore  how trendy it is with the brush script and bold colors but I also love how it's a throwback to vintage BasicGrey and one of our very first lines, Sublime. It just couldn't be better. My only dilemma was that it was so pink that I wasn't sure how I was going to use it for my boys. But trust me, friends, when it comes to something I love, I find a way!

The Highline collection was such a fun choice for this photo - the bright colors and whimsical feel of the papers  and unique embellishments like the wood chalkboard shapes just set off the Valentine's Day theme.  I don't get many Valentine's photos anymore, so when I do I cherish them! This year was most likely Carson's last year of school Valetine's parties and I was sad...and then even sadder when school was called off early because of the weather. So to cheer him up, we made these fun cupcakes for everyone.

Supply List: BasicGrey Highline PP, 6x6 pad, diecuts and overlays, wood chalkboard shapes; BasicGrey alpha stickers, enamel dots 
other: Cut file by Kelly Goree, Cardstock, Thread, pen, adhesive

I love how the reds and peaches in these papers made his skin glow.

Check out those fun wooden shapes. They have a chalkboard like finish and the alphabet stickers really POP when placed on them. I love how it adds a special element to the title.

And a bit more of the cut file details. Don't forget you can download one to use for yourself HERE. If you use it, I'd love it if you'd link me up and show me what you did with it!

And one more thing, BasicGrey is once again doing their retailer Page of the Month (and Card of the Month) kits! They are awesome classes (recognize one of the cuties in the below photos? ;)) and you don't want to miss them! Call your local LSS to see about getting the classes near you!
