Create-n-Connect | Make + Take

BasicGrey | Capture

 

Today I thought we would do something a little different and share a peek into the make + take that we are creating at our booth at the Create and Connect convention. Our whole goal for the project at this trade show is to allow our visitors to really get a hands-on experience with the Capture system using a variety of our latest collections (RSVP, Persimmon, and 25th & Pine). Here’s the sample project:

 

BasicGrey | What a Week | Ann-Marie Morris

 

The mini book is comprised of three different divided page protectors and a vellum paper with an Attach-Me sticker bound together with twine.

The first page features some of our latest and greatest Capture products, including the never-expiring calendar stamp, label and alpha stickers, and a die-cut photo frame for housing photos taken at our booth. We are encouraging our lovely guests to take as much creative liberty as possible with these pages; my sample is merely a jumping-off point!

On the left page, the photo frame die-cut from the first page was folded over to cover both sides of the protector sheet. On the right page, I used a few of my favorite new + old supplies, including the tracing ruler, my favorite Snippet, and a binder clip, in addition to some fun new additions from the RSVP collection. The pinwheel on the upper right was glued directly on top of the page protector so that it would be quick + easy to attach with adhesive and top with a metal stud.

And finally, for the last spread, I used a mix of 25th & Pine papers (holiday paper has never been so Summer-friendly!)label and alpha stickers, vellum tape, and a smattering of metal studs.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek into our time at Create and Connect! Be sure to follow us on Instagram at @official_basicgrey for even more behind-the-scenes photos!

BasicGrey To Go : Memory Jars

Memory Jars | Kim Jeffress

I absolutely love the itty pieces on the layered stickers sheet from the Picadilly line. They are so sweet. I wanted to create a memory jar set for a little friend of my son’s and the layered stickers were perfect for creating my project.  I found a sweet photo of the two of them and I went ahead and played.
