Paper of the Week; BasicGrey

It's Monday, time for another Paper of the Week Feature! Virginia Lu is here with her projects using SRM Stickers and;

BasicGrey
"
Out of Print"

Project #1: Layout with paper-weaving. This photo was taken when my son David, his piano partner and friend, jumped up in triumph when they just finished a spectacular performance at a piano concert.



Project #2: Birthday Card. My son turned 17 this month. He LOVES kite flying! So this is for him! The Our of Print graphic is newspaper-like, great look for a homemade kite.



Project #3: Flowery birthday card. Lots of cutting and no stamping needed.



Project #4: Tubes. I needed to make some thank-you gifts for a lawyer's office.



Project #5: Princess Wands. My friend is going through a tough time as her husband is newly diagnosed with cancer. Her two teenage daughter are under a lot of stress and heartaches. I want to give them these princess wands (with bath salt) to cheer them up a bit.
