Basic Grey New Release- On the Shelves!- Sugar Rush & Origins

Sugar Rush is their 'Valentine's' release, but many of the papers are non-specific and can easily be used in spring, baby and summer themed layouts. There are many smaller prints that will work wonderfully for our card makers. These are deliciously double sided cardstock weight papers and we have a lovely selection of embellishments to coordinate, including the luxe fabric covered brads, pops, and fabric tags.
Origins is their other new release and it has a very rich, earthy feel. These papers are also double sided cardstock weight and have a variety of pattern sizes (which we LOVE!) It's a hot palette for weddings right now too and the inclusion of black gives these prints a very classy, upscale feel that would make it wonderful for invitations, thank you notes and more. We've also brought in a nice selection of coordinating embellishments for this line. Additionally, Basic Grey released several new designs in their matching Bling and Opaline stickers. Some are designed to coordinate with the new lines while others are just nice, basic staples that can be worked into pretty much any project!

Holiday Wreath Class: Saturday, Dec. 12

Festive Holiday Wreath Class
Saturday, December 12 @ 10:30 AM
Cost: $27
Instructor: Alissa
(note: this is a workshop length class)

You asked for it! Alissa’s Autumn Wreath class was a sellout hit, so she’s brought the class back bigger and better for Christmas! This time, we’ll make an even larger Holiday wreath using a beautiful mix of Graphic 45 papers in classic Christmas home decor colors. You’ll learn how to make not one, but FIVE different handcrafted paper flowers to cover a foam wreath form. This gorgeous wreath is sure to impress your guests and add festive holiday flair to your home! We also think it would make a great gift (if you can stand parting with it)!

In addition to your basic tool kit, please bring an assortment of glue dots (mini & medium/craft), a strong holding quick drying liquid adhesive (like Scrappy glue), chestnut roan chalk ink and an edge distresser if you have one (such as the one made by Heidi Swapp or Making Memories).
