BasicGrey's 3rd Quarter Release: SECOND CITY by KELLY PURKEY

Hello, everyone!!

I just wanted to share one of my last projects as a design team member at BasicGrey. I am so thrilled this is the line that I got to do my final projects with. I am absolutely, completely in love with SECOND CITY, the new inspired by Kelly Purkey line. Knowing Kelly like I do, I was quite sure she'd have the city angle covered for any sample, so I wanted to go someplace completely different. The awesome skyline papers as well as the addition of purples and black made this just call out for a HALLOWEEN layout - yes, HALLOWEEN!! 

Am I right?!
Here are my youngest monkeys a few years ago trick or treating...and keeping our city safe!

Look at that city flair and the chipboard! SO much fun! I am over-the-moon excited! 

I couldn't completely this layout without a bit of Kelly's own font on here - SP Purkage! It was the perfect finishing touch! 

Hop on over to the BasicGrey blog for your chance to win not only this collection, but their new Christmas collection, Evergreen!

Have a great weekend!

So Long, Thank You & My Loss is YOUR Gain!

Hi, all....

As I'm sure many of you might have already heard or have just been gradually figuring it out, I have made the extremely hard decision to take a step back from professional scrapbooking.

I have been in this amazing industry for many (MANY!) years now and I am so grateful for all of the opportunities and experiences that have come my way as a result of it - truly they are too many to name. But my life has come to a sort of crossroads with everyone going different directions and I want to make sure that I am as present as I can possibly be for the next phase of my family. I promise that I will continue to scrapbook for me, though maybe not as frequently, and will continue to post perhaps here but especially on my scrapbook-related Facebook page.

And if you'd like, I'd love it if you would continue to support me in my brand new adventure! I have started my own photography business. You can keep tabs on me here: KELLY GOREE PHOTOGRAPHY or on the Facebook version of that site HERE. I'm crazy excited about this new opportunity and am looking forward to capturing some amazing memories for others.

As I'm sure you have guess/hoped, I am cleaning/purging my scrappy space to make room for photo equipment and such! I hope my LOSS is YOUR GAIN!

***********Edited to ADD: ALL BOXES + CLASS KITS ARE NOW GONE. What is still available is listed on my yard sale post in the link below. THANK YOU!!!***********

I have available my final FOUR Flat Rate USPS priority boxes full of all kinds of amazing goodies. Each one contains not only a brand-new collection pack of paper from a well-known manufacturer but many brand new embellishment packs as well - things such as enamel dots, diecut packs, alphabet stickers, chipboard alphabets and on and on.
Each box can be YOURS for $50. 
That includes the priority shipping. 
First come, first served. Please message me at kelly(dot)goree(at)gmail(dot)com for any questions, or to claim a box for your own!

I also have three remaining CLASS KITS. The cost for these is $20 plus shipping. The shipping will be priority and will vary depending on where you live but you can estimate $8. I WILL combine shipping if you want more than one kit! Email me at the above address for images of the projects. I will tell you both kits are girlie in feel and one is 3 single pages, the other 2 singles and a double.

Also, I still have the items in the previous post (Link HERE) available if they aren't marked out. Those are a bit different but everything listed is BRAND NEW and 75% off retail! AMAZING deals to be had!

And finally, I want to thank each of you, my loyal blog readers and friends, for being so supportive for the past few years. You are AMAZING and I thank you for thinking enough of me that you kept coming back for more! ;)
Much love,
