Design Team Wednesday: Basic Grey Persimmon with Suzanna

Suzanna here to share with you today! With Fall right around the corner, what better way to show off your Halloween and Thanksgiving pictures than with Basic Grey's Persimmon collection?! This is my all time favorite Fall collection, I just love the non-traditional color palate and the patterns. The navy blue with the persimmon orange-y red are just perfect together!! I have two layouts to share with you; a 12x12 and an 8.5x11. One Halloween and one Thanksgiving.

First up, Halloween! After all, it is the first of the two holiday's to occur. One of the many fantastic things about Basic Grey these days are the waterfall packs; you get a little bit of everything! A few die cuts, some journaling spots of two different sizes (also perfect for Project Life!) and some letter stickers. This line has a matching waterfall pack that is the perfect compliment to the collection kit.

Boo! Don't be frightened by this little fellow peeking out from an Ikat layer!

Though the patterns from the Persimmon collection are very different, they are the perfect compliment for layering on your project.

I have this "thing" lately for using large pictures. That place setting card and the turkey die cut from the waterfall pack are the perfect embellishments for our Thanksgiving dinner. Between those embellies and the large picture, don't you feel like you're there, in the dining room with us?

The collection pack comes with letter stickers. I can't say I'm the biggest fan of the circle stickers... I always end up cutting them down and creating something better suited to my needs. So don't go looking for the navy blue rectangular letter stickers, there aren't any. The fussy cut triangle "bits" found at the top of this layout are remnants of the border strip at the bottom of the page. The various complimentary color mists and Distress paint splats add just the right touch of color to the white space at the top of this layout.

Be sure to stock up on Basic Grey's Persimmon at Scrapdoodles today! I guarantee you, there won't be much left, it's a hot ticket item! Think of the possibilities for Halloween pictures with older children who don't want all those cutesy ghosts and trick or treater's on their layouts! Timeless Thanksgiving greetings. I even think this collection would make amazing masculine cards... Hmmm... Off to explore some more possibilities!
