Old New Supplies

I'm going through a bit of a Basic Grey phase right now. I want it all. I'm searching wherever possible for it. I may have just had a rather large box with 15 pounds of BG paper arrive at my house...but that's another post!

In early February, I found someone selling Hey Girl! They had most of a paper pad and a whole ton of embellishments. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see all the different embellishments were a mix of things I would have purchased on my own as well as some things I would usually purchase. (I'm looking at you, chipboard letters!) The seller had also included her scrap pieces. I was a little surprised but happy to have as much as possible. I set off to challenge myself to use those scrap pieces first. I was so happy with the two layouts I created. The only full sheets where the background pages. Everything else was from the set of scraps. 

Almost everything on both layouts is from the Basic Grey Hey Girl! collection. From my own stash I added Stickles, brown ink, some twine, staples, and one letter sticker (which isn't too noticeable sadly).

Thanks for stopping by my blog today :) YES! the washi tape on those magnets for the MISTI works like a charm. Esp. when they "kiss," it's easy to pull them apart.

Great use of scrap papers and those BG papers. Glad you are finding them - I'm sure I have a stash of them somewhere in my studio...if I ever clean...sigh. LOL!!
