BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop!



Welcome to the BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the blog of the fabulous
Kelly Goree: http://kellygoree.blogspot.com/

The Serenade Collection captures the refinement of bygone years, where tea was served with crumpets and your dinner guests retired to the parlor for sparkling conversation. Full of refined grace and delicate simplicity, you’ll love adorning your projects with Serenade’s layers of petticoats, bustled tea gowns and prim parasols.



Tip: Stamp images with soft tones of ink on light paper. 


Love Love Love this collection!!!  I wanted to do something a little different so I went with a circle card. I cut two 4 1/4" circles on my Silhouette, then covered the front with pieces of 6x6 Serenade papers.  The colors of Serenade are very calming to me, easy to work with and are my go-to muted tones that I have always adored. Oh and the stitched garland??? How cute is that!!!
