BG Brag Book: Evergreen Metals





Just like a snowflake, the new metal designs in our Evergreen collection are so delicate and refined.




Whether you layer them together, combine them with other embellishments, or attach them one at a time on your projects, you’ll love the look of these snowflake-inspired embies!






What will you do with these gorgeous metal embellishments? Please share!


Gift Card Holder with Melissa Phillips



Melissa Phillips: Too early for a little Christmas cheer?  Nah!  Not when I get to share the sweet new Evergreen Collection from BasicGrey.


The colors speak to me as I love the traditional Christmas colors mixed with soft pink, yellow, and aqua blue.  I’ve whipped up a few gift card holders to share with you using elements from this collection.

I love that the patterned paper is double sided because it’s so fun to combine with my gift card dies and get pattern on the outside and inside, and there isn’t a pattern in this collection I don’t love so it’s fun to be able to show them all off.

I embellished the tags cut to fit inside the gift card holders as well as the outside using die cuts, transparencies, brads, metal snowflakes, sequins, and glitter.


Christmas will be here before you know it and I love starting early on my cards and gifts. Evergreen is a treat to create with!

We cased the Two Peas gallery one last time and found this incredible layout created by Paige Evans.




Using the Capture collection, Paige had this to say about her layout:


Paige Evans: The Capture collection by BasicGrey? Amazing. Seriously, they’ve been knocking every line out of the park lately. The colors are a bit bolder version of the 2Peas April moodboard but that’s where I drew my inspiration – the colors. And then I used one of my favorite techniques: punching patterned papers and piecing them together! Regarding the “milestones” theme – I think 18 months is a big milestone! A year and a half is when kids can enter Nursery at church and really it’s just the cutest and most fun age of babies in my opinion. I dressed Jane up and got lots of pictures of her to scrap!







Great layout, Paige and thank you for letting us share it with our readers!


Blueprint | Becky Williams | Second City





Becky Williams: I used a PageMaps sketch from May 2014 that used the ever-so-trendy frames as a backdrop for the page.


PageMaps sketch for assignment




I decided to follow the sketch but have my own take on it which I did by cutting the frames in a couple of different sizes using a metal die and lots of patterns from the Second City collection.






I finished off my page using some of the cute chipboard pieces from Second City, printed tape from the Capture collection and some Candy Buttons.
