Throwback Thursdays: Basic Grey

Just like most girls, I like to get the latest and greatest, especially when it comes to scrapbooking supplies. Are you like that too?  While that is loads of fun, there is still something to be said about the many treasures that are hiding away in our stash.

This new series, "Throwback Thursdays: Using up the Crafter's Stash" is geared to give you inspiration to use up some of the older paper and goodies in your stash!  You may have some of the same supplies that I do -- and we can craft it together!

Your challenge this week is to dig out all your older Basic Grey supplies.  In the video below, you will see what items I combined for a great new layout.

After the video, look farther down this post to see the additional Basic Grey supplies I found in my stash, plus two more completed layouts and a simple greeting card appropriate for masculine birthdays!

Visit my new Facebook Page -- join this challenge and share what you created with your Basic Grey supplies!

I found more Basic Grey supplies, including some Fact & Fiction chipboard pieces (not shown here)

This layout used a combination of PB&J, Cupcake and Fact & Fiction.

This layout is mostly PB&J with Fact & Fiction chipboard.  The "Delight" saying is a G-Studios chipboard piece I got at Michaels ages ago.

Here is the masculine birthday card -- I was able to make 3 of these.  I used the "Simply Sketched" stamp collection from Stampin' Up.  

What did you create?  Go to my Facebook Page 
and show us your project!
