Basic Grey Life of the Party | Monday Card Madness #49

Do you feel like your creative life is a little lackluster? Then today’s steal, the Basic Grey Life of the Party Collection can definitely bring some of that inspiration back!

I don’t know what it is about Basic Grey and their amazing 6×6 pads, but I truly couldn’t not stop at one or two, or even four cards for today’s Monday Card Madness. Instead I had to create five cards with this inspiring collection.

I love the mix of not only patterns and colors — embellishments and buttons, but the fact that this kit is sporting some wood grain just makes me smile!

Wouldn’t you have to agree that the Life of the Party collection is definitely one that is packed with goodness?

If you’d like to be eligible for our next monthly drawing, your cards will need to be posted and linked by Friday, September 30th, at 11:59 pm MST.

Also full details on the next holiday-themed card swap will be posted next Monday, so start thinking crafty vibes along the Thanksgiving  / winter / holiday / Christmas theme. As always it will be a 10 card swap.

We’ll see you tomorrow for our next amazing How To’sday!

Have a great Monday!

Basic Grey Jovial | Mid Week Mojo

Topaz Club — Layout 6

Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner? Today’s steal, the Basic Grey Jovial 6×6 pad and embellishments would be the perfect addition to your collection to get a jump start on your Holiday cards.

While I’m over the moon thrilled to get to use these papers on my cards this season, I wasn’t quite ready to give up the fact that we still have a few weeks of summer weather left. When I was considering what photos to scrap, I realized that the back to school photos that I took of my daughter a few days ago would work perfectly with the Jovial collection.

I love how rich the colors are in the papers. Perfect for the feel of my layout. I also love the chipboard letters which are included in the steal. Perfect for adding a title!

The collection comes with some amazing embellishments. I’m quite fond of the lace borders and paper clips.

You have just got to love a collection that is versatile enough to multi-task your projects with!

Now it’s time for this week’s winner! Congrats goes out to Venetia Holbrook.

I absolutely adore her take on the Topaz #5 sketch. Venetia, if you’ll send your address to service@scrapbooksteals.com, we will be happy to send a prize out to you!

Don’t forget that we only have a few more weeks until our next big drawing for the Topaz Club series.

For any of you that have questions regarding Mid Week Mojo you can check out all of the rules and details here. Also, as we continue week to week, bookmark this page for your quick reference to Mid Week Mojo links.

Now go get scrappy!

Oliver | Monday Card Madness #35

Oliver | Monday Card Madness #35

If you feel like you’re seeing a little bit of deja vu, then you’re not mistaken! Today’s steal, the Oliver collection by Basic Grey is just what you mommies to little boys have been waiting for. I was beyond delighted when I realized I’d be creating with this fantastic collection for cards since I had so much fun creating with Olivia last week.

Just like the Olivia collection, the Oliver collection is filled with amazing distressed designs and fantastic embellishments. I love how the patterns go together with ease, so I decided to create a sketch that allowed snippets from five different prints.

I flipped the sketch on the side and created a couple of more cards.

I loved the papers so much that I ditched the sketch and created one more card that allowed more of the cute monkey paper to be seen.

I hope you’ve been sending out joy! All of these cards will be finding their way to someones mailbox or they will be a part of the card swap that ScrapbookSteals is hosting. If you haven’t heard the news, here are the details.

I have always been such a fan of Basic Grey and the deliciously distressed papers that they offer. Olivia is no different and it was a blast using it to create cards for this weeks sketch.
