Dear Basic Grey {a love letter}

Dear Basic Grey,

You have held me and my budget captive since the very first release. I remember clearly grabbing up the last packages of it at a hot summer expo, and feeling that same NEED with (most) every release since.


You gave me the sanding tools I never knew I always wanted, the fabric covered brads I adore, heck – I even buy products with “bling” in the title from you despite my severe dislike of that word & usual boycott of it.


I use your products endlessly so I don’t know how to explain the growing stash. I just know that I have kind of, well, a LOT of your stuff. I love it so. It doesn’t hurt that the super awesome & fabulous Kelly Goree is on your team. She’s such a beautiful scrapbooker and I love how she inspires me to get the stash out and use it.


This is a layout with the new Nook & Pantry. I’m so very fond of this line and that you’ve gone to double sided papers. I adore them, and creating with your stuff is always a pleasure. Should you ever need a product tester or anything else, I’m very much available. Ah but you probably know that since I jumped at the chance to be in your newsletter (coming soon blog readers – I’ll tell you when it’s up).

Keep up the good work Basic Grey, and keep putting out fabric too – the sewer in me LOVES that.

All my love,

May Flaum

  1. I LOVE all of BASIC Greys products too and am very excited that they have double-sided papers!!

  2. May – you crack me up … thanks for a much needed giggle today! ALso I am in LOVE with that pear paper!!


  3. I love basic Grey too. I also love your layout. Those photos of the girls with their dad are just precious!

  4. Yup! BG has such COOl stuff. And Kelly Goree – the best. She taught the BG classes at Scrapbbok Expo in Sacramento last week with all the new stuff and I took every one of them. I’m working on her Eerie mini album today. Delicious fun and her inspiration has given me several ideas to use with my overwhelming stash!
    Love what you’ve done with the BG on this post, May!

  5. that was hilarous May! I totally feel the same about BG & the inspiration that Kelly Goree gives with her scrapping magic. I’ve been collecting ever since they started too yet I’ve been a “good girl” lately. Their new Christmas line is calling my name and it’s been hard to resist.
