Basically Bare News, And A HUGE Prize Too!

Ridiculously Humongous Prize Alert! Keep reading for details!

It's a drab Monday morning here in Ohio, but regardless of the weather I'm starting my week off with awesome news! You know I love Basically Bare, right? I've been working with them for six months, and I have enjoyed every single moment of it. They recently announced a design team call, and I am so very honored to say that I have made it into the "Final Exam" round! Now, I've been out of school for a long time. A really long time. Tests used to make me nervous, so I hope I do well today!

For my "Final Exam" I am going to share with you my three favorite Basically Bare products. While I love them all, there are certain things I find myself using over and over.

Signature Series-Fanciful Frames



It should come as no surprise that these land on my top three list. The Fanciful Frames set is one of three I designed for Basically Bare and it was released last summer. Why do I love them though? A package of these frames can take you so many places. They are not just for framing up photos, you can do a title or journaling in them. You can layer several together, using different colors and techniques to make something ornate and magical. The truth is, these are a must have in my stash, and I never want to run out of them!

Bare Basics Gears



Ahhh, Bare Basics Gears, where have you been all my life? These beauties just make me smile! I love to dabble with Steampunk from time to time, and these gears are an absolute no-brainer for that! I have used them for heritage and "passage of time" projects as well. I love having these on hand when I am scrapping photos of my four year old son, they are a fabulous boy embellie!


Bare Basics Buttons



Let's face it: EVERYONE likes buttons. In fact, if you don't, I'm not sure you're human! I jest, I jest! But let's be real here for a minute. We all have buttons in our stash. Heck, I know some people who hoard them and might just need some professional help. (They know who they are, hee hee.) The best part about Bare Basics Buttons is that you can customize these to fit your exact needs. Use patterned paper, paint, or ink. Distress them with scissors and sandpaper, dry emboss them, heat emboss them, run over them with your car... Well, OK, that might be a little crazy, but hey! That is what scrapping is about for me, and I need ample amounts of these buttons on hand in order to be happy.

Where to buy Basically Bare? Check out Scrapbook.com today!

Now, I bet you want to hear about this prize I mentioned way up at the top of my post, right? All of the Basically Bare design team finalists are doing "Final Exam" blog posts like mine here. One lucky commenter from all of those posts will be chosen by Basically Bare to win a ridiculous prize package!

WHAT DO YOU WIN??
The ENTIRE Basically Bare CHA Winter release! That's right, ALL the new albums and ALL the new embellishment sets!

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?
Just leave a comment right here on this blog post by MARCH 15th. The winner will be announced the next day, so keep an eye on Basically Bare's Facebook page. (Hey, while you're there, go ahead and "Like" them!)
