I was recently given a Basic Grey scrapbook page kit. Now these kits are not something I would normally go for as I'm a bit of a free spirit and do not like to be dictated to about how to go about creative projects. My mother of course would say that's my self willed character coming out ( ha ha you betcha) Well this time since it was a gift and it was quite nice, I thought why not?
|This is the kit with the page layouts given. Below you can see what the kit included.|
The kit included enough paper and embellishments to create four pages, though two were meant to be created to be seen face to face, to give a two page spread. The kit also included detailed instructions of how the page was to be assembled I have made up one page as you can see below.

I'm afraid though I used the kit I did not follow the instructions to the the letter and I also added additional embellishments and lettering. I am pleased with the end result and have got to say that using the kit was not too confining. I think such kits would be great for the new scrapbooker.
This kit particularly is one of the better ones I have seen and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I thought the paper was good quality and well printed and the die cut embellishments were easy to use and of a similar robust quality.
I will be using the rest of the kit in later projects so look of for them.
