Freebie Friday – BasicGrey


Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Hello and happy end of the week! I don’t know about you, but I am doing a happy dance that today is Friday. It has been a long week and I am ready for it to be over now so I can spend some downtime with my wonderful family!

This week, I have the privilege of sharing with you projects from the amazing BasicGrey design team. These projects feature products from their latest releases Saturday Morning, Urban Luxe and Hillside.

Before I get started with the design team projects, I want to tell you about the watercolor paper die cuts in the Urban Luxe collection. These die cuts include 3 full sets of alphabets plus more.

Urban Luxe Watercolor Alphas

I wrote out the word ‘laugh’ and grabbed the large heart. They are fabulous! I haven’t added them to a project yet, but they are colored and ready to go! Sweet!



These design team projects feature the Saturday Morning collection.
