spotlight on BasicGrey's "Second City" line at Paper Issues

morning, chickens!  how was your weekend?

i had some fun checking out our town-wide yard sale, some drinks with the hubbin, volunteering at a cat adopt-a-thon, and some seriously late-night crafting, which i hadn't done in a LONG time!

well today, i'm sharing the fruits of my labour on Saturday night...  i grabbed a slew of the new Kelly Purkey line, "Second City", from BasicGrey and it came in one of my most recent Paper Issues orders.  WELL!  there are some gorgeous, bold patterns, and for someone who is generally TERRIFIED of purple, i'm kinda loving it in this collection! 

i'm up on the Paper Issues blog today, along with my super-talented teamie, Jen Chapin, and we're showing you how it's done, Second City style...

here's what i made into the wee hours, using one of my fave Origrami prints, the Limba White Woodgrain cardstock (my absolutely fave white!), and various items from the Second City collection (plus a couple of Highline items and VERY old brads and alphas from BasicGrey mixed in)...

i wasn't planning to go all bright and colourful with the photo - it just happened!  but i loved how it turned out!  the transparencies are my favourites from this line (that little HOUSE!):

and page flags!

i have two cards up on the blog, too, but you'll have to go there to check them out!  besides, you won't want to miss the fabulosity of Jen's pocket pages using this line!  CLICK HERE, check it out, and to see all the fun Second City (and Highline!) goodies, CLICK HERE...  if any of it happens to fall into your shopping cart, i've got a code for you!  20% off all of it, anytime.  yep, everything!
