Another Basic Grey Card Kit: Marrakech Collection

Well here I am again sharing with you these awesome Card Kits from Basic Grey. Today is Marrakech Collection and let me tell you... the cards are beautiful!!!!! When you get the kit you see the cards on the front and say "oh cute" but when you start doing them... well, them come to life!!!

Another thing I love about these kits is the different sizes they come in. For example this kit had:
(2) 5 x 7
(2) 5 x 5
(2) 4 x 5
(2) 3.5 x 9 

More things to share with you about the kits:
* Everything is pre-cut!!! You do not have to cut anything!!!!
* Extra rub-ons, in case you want to change the sentiment

For these cards I did use something extra on some... I will share that under each card.

All cards were inked with Color Box/Burnt Sienna

Added bling and added more rub-ons

Added ribbon and bling on the flower

Hope you like what you see!!! Please don't forget to keep checking for more Card Kits from Basic Grey!!

I will giveaway a set of your choice from the ones I have made!!

Basic Grey Card Kits!! LOVING THEM!!

Hello all!!  If you follow me and follow my BFF Gaby you know that we are crazy for Basic Grey (she is more than me, don't tell her i said that!)!! We do the POTM (page of the month) and we LOVE it!!!

I had seen their card kits before but never gave it much attention. Well, I decided to buy some kits and help out my son's school as a fundraiser for a trip they are doing to DC.

These kits are awesome!!! It comes with everything you need! Each kits comes with enough material to create 8 cards and easy to follow instructions.

I started with the Wisteria collection and followed the instructions like they come.... but, I need my ribbon! For the next ones I will use some ribbon, bling, and maybe some stickles.

For now here are the three I made.

Don't forget to check out tomorrow for more Basic Grey cards!!

Lil Abby Scrappin!

Happy Monday everyone! I was doing some scrap cleaning and Abby (my daughter) was trying to help out but kept messing up my stuff. So, I sat her on her high-chair and gave her some stuff to keep her busy!

All I did was put glue on the ribbon (and folded sides), put glue dots on the buttons! Oh and the cuts were already done! She placed everything herself!!! Not the best.... but hey! it's her very first card!!!! I love it!

Can't wait till we can actually scrap together and ohhhh the shopping we will do!!!!! How FUN!!!!

Forgot to tell you, she is just 2 1/2!!!!!

Thanks for taking your time to look at my blog!!!

I am in the middle of doing some chipboard albums.... yep, that was an S at the end of albumS!!! 4 to be exact!!!
