Want a classic look combined with vibrant colors? Look no further than BasicGrey's Sultry collection This collection combines BasicGrey's classic worn look with a combination of pinks, green and rich chocolate brown. The bright colors bring energy to every layout.

Solid and Patterned Papers. The key colors of light and bright pinks, green and brown are featured in the solid papers. The patterned papers include floral designs for a beautiful spring and summer appeal, plus geometric designs. While working with colorful photographs, I turned to a floral paper (Dressy) and combined it with stripes of the vibrant pink (Fandango).

Letter Stickers. The letter stickers come in green and pink. Both are great colors that work well with the papers. They are also large which helps with big titles. The font style is curly and feminine. They work well but I wanted more stickers of each letter. In my layout I was able to use the capital pink letters for a bold and vibrant title.

Design Stickers. The pack also comes with some stickers for design elements on the page. Examples include buttons, photo corners, borders, hearts, tags and journaling spots. The borders are 12 inches, which allows it to fit fully across the page. These are easy to incorporate on any page with the other Sultry items. My "Grizzly" layout includes a star-shaped journaling spot and a bright pink border.

Of course all the items mix and match together. Use whole sheets of paper, scraps of paper or the embellishments. Inking the papers contribute to the feel of the BasicGrey worn look. Have fun mixing them all together.
