Kelly Purkey: Hi everyone, it’s Kelly Purkey and today I’m sharing a peek into a Capture album that I created using my Mon Ami collection.




I am a big fan of the Capture albums and the pocket page protector system, it makes it really easy to get things documented in a fast way. It’s especially great for using on travels, which I did here with a trip to Austin, TX.




I had saved a lot of memorabilia from the trip like business cards and menus, along with some cool greeting cards and postcards I’d purchased there. Basically a ton of paper came home with me!

The pockets made it super easy to slip things into and I added things in with the great Attach-Me stickers.

The Mon Ami line is perfect for using on travel projects, the stickers in the collection really say it all sometimes. I hope you’re enjoying using Mon Ami on your own adventures!

Alexes Brown: Hello there! I’m pretty excited to be here today with you to share yet another great Capture two page spread! I also want to show you guys how easy it is it blend together a few of the most recent BasicGrey collections.


Today I’ll be using Fresh Cut and Mon Ami, two really fun but different lines. Normally when I scrapbook I tend to stick with one collection so when I got this assignment it was a bit of a challenge, but after I got started it was super fun and easy!

Basically I started by picking a color scheme that incorporated the two lines. After a while of thinking, I decided on navy, grey, teal and yellow. I’m really pleased with how it turned out too!

The vellum tape stickers from the Fresh Cut collection is so easy and fun to use! I love the fact that the colors are really vibrant and add that special touch to your page!

These little wood veneer words are seriously the coolest. They give such a fun look while also adding dimension and texture to my page.


Thanks for checking in and hope you all have a fantastic day!

Kim Price: I am head over heels for the new BasicGrey Spice Market collection; everything from the color combinations to the intricate patterns drew me in from the moment I first saw it. I can see myself creating with this collection over and over, with a different look every time.

Today I want to share a layout which features some hidden journaling behind my photograph using the fun Capture Attach Me stickers. I’ve simply added two of the self adhesive tabs to the back of my photo using them as “hinges”, and adhered them to my layout. I’ve then added a third tab in a coordinating color to assist in opening and closing the journaling.

I’ve also used a couple of Painted Stamped Metal Shapes in the top left corner adding that little bit of “extra special” to my page.

For my title I have used the coordinating Spice Market Printed Chipboard Alpha, carefully adding a black border around each letter using a permanent archival quality brush marker for some added definition, and replacing the letter “O” from “love” with a sweet little flower chipboard embellishment from the Printed Chipboard Shapes pack.


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you enjoyed some of my ideas using the Attach Me stickers.

BasicGrey | Blueprint | Inspired by Breanna Rose

Tina Aszmus: What I love most about participating in a Blueprint is that it doesn’t have to follow along the inspiration exactly. My favorite part of this Blueprint are the photos that are cut at an angle with blocks of color.

I went the minimal route and chose to do just a row of angled cuts on a 12 x 12 layout using a few photos and patterned papers from the Capture collection. I used the Today Was stamp as my title because the scale was perfect and fit nicely between the angles.
