Basic Grey Page of the Month Layout Program

The Basic Grey Page of the Month Program will begin this week with complimentary classes on Thursday evening from 6-8pm and Saturday from 1-3pm.

Pictured here is the 1st layout designed by Basic Grey designer Vicki Boutin.

After putting all of the kits together you will be happy to know that you will also be going home with lots of extra product. When taking a Basic Grey kit class, if an embellishment has been used in the layout, you not only get the exact embellishments they used, but you get the ENTIRE package! On this layout for example they used 4 pieces from the Paper Pieces package. With 17 pieces in a package, that's quite a number of extra pieces. An additional bonus here is that you can choose what paper pieces YOU want on your own layout. So look at this layout a bit closer. With the kit you get 2 sheets of 5 different patterned papers. I'll let you figure it out, but that's a fair bit of extra paper that you will also go home with! Pictured to the right are only some of the kits that I was organizing! Note the full packages of clips, paper pieces and instruction sheet!

If this program interests you, we still have a few spaces left. Anyone signing up by Saturday March 27th will also get the other incentives that Basic Grey offers as well as our own special incentive for you! Don't hesitate to contact us for more info! 250-590-1266

Show Time!

Why is there a picture of Bill Cosby and "The Cosby Family" on our blog?! I just had to share my news with you.

While I was growing up I think that I "grew up with the Cosby Family". Well, not in person of course. But it was a show that was watched religiously in our house. The humour, laughs and lightheartedness of the show pleased many while still covering many subjects that really hit home with almost anyone. Just the vision of Bill in the kitchen makes me smile...and an apron at that! Looking at the picture with the family at the table is a reminder of how "family" is a stronger unit when they come together and work as a unit. I always love being around families with this strong bond: happiness and joy abound!

My news: I am going to see Bill Cosby tonight as I won tickets! YEAH~~ I can really use a good laugh and I'm sure that won't be a problem~....see, it pays to watch the news. THANKS /A\ NEWS!

A VERY lucky and happy Stacey!

Wedding Display & Baby Cake

Pictured on the left is the wedding display that I made for the Sewing & Craft Show March 11-12, 2010. Teresa helped out by making the card that is on the stand on the left-hand side. The display was complete with the following: wedding cake, bridal party boxes, wedding card, invite and thank you cards, table place setting card, topiary table center piece as well as extra hand-made flowers.

The cake and bridal party were all completed with industrial dies that we have. If you are interested in a bridal package such as this, please let us know. We are in the process of putting together an order sheet to order kits. This display would also be good for a birthday party, bridal shower, prom party as well as many other occasions. We can alter it to suit your needs.

I am also posting a Baby Shower cake that Mily Avon completed. Mily informed me that both her and her friend Trish hand-cut every cake slice! The hours to complete both of these projects is well worth the effort. Thanks for sharing your creation Mily!
Hope these spark your creativity!

ATC Police

I'd like to share a photo of our newly appointed ATC Police Officer, Marilyn. She enjoys creating ATCs and policing all the creative activities during our monthly ATC social (1st thursday of every month)! Thanx Marilyn, what would we do without you!


We were a small group but we had a great time at the STIMMA funraising crop on Saturday, February 27. We raised $280.00! Thank you to all that participated and a special thank you to the BCGEU Cross Component Committee who provided funds for lunch and door prizes. Congrats to Karen McLaughlin who won the big door prize of a Sizzix cardmaking & embossing 91-piece beginner's kit.
