Little Bits of Christmas... for ScrapbookUSA Expo
Basic Grey sent me the most gorgeous box of goodies for my ScrapbookUSA Expo projects this month. It was like having my own little early Christmas! They sent me the "Aspen Frost" Christmas/winter collection, and I had a grand old time scrapping with it. Here's my first layout:
As I looked through my pictures from this past Christmas, I had a lot of little moments but no great "this is Christmas" shots. Then I realized -- all the little moments are what make up a wonderful Christmas! And the Aspen Frost collection was perfect for that theme -- I was able to use the patterned paper, letter stickers, tags, pre-sewn pennant flags (how cool is that?), and mini-envelopes to put together a fun, eclectic layout highlighting all the little "bits" we enjoyed so much.
Basic Grey is definitely a favorite booth at the ScrapbookUSA Expo. They sell their big collection packs, card kits, and tons of little bits and bobs that you don't often see, all for great prices. (Psst -- they've always had a one-hour sale on their collection packs during the day on Friday that makes them only $5 each. DEAL!) I may or may not have bought at least 10 different packs in September... and a ton of adorable flower clips... and labels and rub-ons and alphabet flashcards and more. Oh, the awesomeness.
Thanks for stopping by!
PS I also used red velvet chipboard letters from My Mind's Eye for the title.
