As you know by now, if you hopped along from Stephanie’s blog, we were to choose any of Basic Grey’s new collections as our inspiration kit. As soon as I saw Basic Grey’s Prism collection, I was enchanted. Nearly 3 months ago, I pinned the collection pack to my Scrapbook Supplies I Like Pinterest Board.
It was very unlike me, that I had not purchased it. Just as my willpower was fading, my sister-in-law gave me some of Stampin Up’s Best Year Ever paper line, which was featured during Saleabration this year.
|Style:||The Prism line is based upon triangles, diamonds, and angles – as you would expect given the name. I think I especially like the bright freshness of the colors played against the limited amount of black elements. |
I started with the Stampin Up paper, and then hunted down other elements that would work with it using the sticker sheet as my guide. At first, sticking to the prismatic look, and then filling in gaps with other items in the correct colors.
My attempt to recreate Basic Grey’s sticker sheet uses elements from various companies, punching out the file tabs and circles from journal cards, using rub-ons to decorate tags, covering chipboard with paper or coloring chipboard with my markers, etc. I came pretty close in the end.
For further additions of white and black you can see the alphabets I added along with those bold black rub-ons.
Now for the dimensional items, matching buttons was well as a few wood buttons, ribbon, washi tape stamps, brads, coated paper clips, small doilies, journal cards and transparencies.
I have included matching Stampin Up markers so that I can color many of the white items in the kit to match, if desired.
And finally I added embossing folders in four petal, diamond plate and art deco designs. Last but not least, a stamp set called Peachy Keen (which is something I often say).
|Star:||“Through A Peachy Paper Prism” is the name of my kit.|
