BasicGrey Aspen Frost Blog Hop

Welcome to the BasicGrey Aspen Frost Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the blog of Kim Jeffress.

Charming and familiar, wild and sweet, a juxtaposition of Christmas past and present, Aspen Frost by BasicGrey holds all the joy and tradition of a homespun holiday. In neutral birch, iced cranberry, red hot cinnamon, dazzling white, glacier blue and green apple, Aspen Frost is the comfort and blessing of yummy pies, sparkling drinks and a warm flame burning in the hearth. 

The colors in this collection are my favorite for the holidays -- some traditional red and green with some light aqua blue mixed in. The stamp sets to go along with this collection are awesome and I couldn't wait to ink them up! The "merry frame" is great for many types of projects -- a journaling spot on a layout, a tag for a gift or use it on your holiday cards like I did here.
