Welcome to the BasicGrey Knee Highs and Bow Ties Hop! You should have arrived here from the blog of the fabulously talented Shannon Tidwell!!

Awe, those playground days—a time full of wonderment and imagination. BasicGrey has captured that energy and excitement in these two coordinating lines. The rough and tumble look of Bow Ties will liven up your crafty toy box, with its vibrant shades of leap-frog green, red-rover red, freeze-tag teal, and more. And the playful motifs in this line, which include tools, cars, creepy-crawlies and rocket ships, will rev your creative engine and as your project ideas soar to new heights.

Looking for a bit more sugar and spice? Knee Highs will put a smile on your face with its rainbow brights and fanciful florals.






Since I'm the mom of boys... It was only natural for me to use the Bow Ties selection of papers and goodies.  I also wanted to create a card for a 16 year old teen... showing the versatility of the collection!!! The Cars & Trucks Silhouette Background stamp used with Soft Sand Shadow ink sets the stage for the papers and stickers.  A quick card to make on the go!

Want a chance to win your choice of a Knee Highs or Bow Ties Collection Pack OR 6x6 Paper Pads of both collections? See the giveaway box below:


If the chance to win a collection pack is exciting, what about the chance to win one of each product in the Knee Highs or Bow Ties collection? Your choice! We thought you might be interested! Simply head over to the BasicGrey Facebook page and let us know your favorite product in the this collection! A winner will be selected at random from all comments received today.

Next, it's time to hop over to adorable and extremely creative Kelly Rasmussen's blog. Remember, if you find a link that doesn't work, you can always hop back to the BasicGrey blog for a list of direct links to all of the blogs in the hop.
