As Promised - NEW BASICGREY!

Whew! It took me longer than I hoped, but internet access was sporadic and let me tell you, I was wiped at the end of the show days. I finally arrived home lateeeeee last night, so here it is, as promised - the NEW BASICGREY! (Click any image for a larger view)

URBAN PRAIRIE

This is BasicGrey's new line URBAN PRAIRIE which is a folk art inspired line - complete with beautiful flowers, butterflies, bumble bees and birds. It's got a folk feel with a modern twist and has such wonderful colors as pinks, teals, black, yellow and a beautiful green.
The little sweetie on the left is Anna, my friend Shelby Valadez's little beauty (THANKS SHELBY!!!). I had such fun doing a little doodling with the frame and bumblebee trail and focusing on that sweet little face. Again there is our new microchip font in white (white chocolate chip! ;)) as well as some new buttons and chip sticker shapes from the line.
The layout on the right features my friend Jamie's little girls Hayden and Hayley. It uses the blue/green/yellow combination of the papers along with the new rub-ons, chip sticker shapes, buttons and again the white chocolate chip microfont.

OFFBEAT

This line is called OFFBEAT and it's one of my favorites! It's very hip and trendy and incredibly versatile. The colors are bright and happy primaries with a punch of brown and white which makes it really fun to work with. Also shown on these layouts are our new microchip fonts - the 1/2 - 3/4" size letters that take titling to a whole new level - mini stamp sets which I used to create a border for the "What you Eat" layout, element stickers and coordinating buttons. (I crack up that I had pictures of the boys as veggies that I've been dying to scrap but couldn't figure out how before!;))
The unique thing about the Offbeat line is that there are 18 PATTERNS and no official "solids" to this line though some patterns are tone on tone or a color with white only. I think that offers so many more options in your scrapping!

EVA

This new line is called EVA (soft emphasis on the "e"). Eva is a European inspired line from the time of Marie Antoinette. The color palette includes beautiful deep plums, pinks, gorgeous greens and touches of black. It's extremely sophisticated, romantic, soft and lovely.
The beauty on the left is my friend, Jamie Harper's young lady, Maddy. Isn't she a beauty? The gorgeous little girl on the right is my friend Jamie Cottrell's daughter, Hayden. Thank you so much ladies for lending me photos of your stunning daughters!
Featured in these layouts are our new Microchip alphas in black (Dark Chocolate Chip), the element stickers from the collection pack and a few Ambrosia rub-ons as well as some Sultry Olio Rub-ons (Sultry blends beautifully with this line).

(and yes, Aly D., we're so going to make sure you get a prize for your correct guess over on our Two Peas post!

AMBROSIA

This is BasicGrey's new line AMBROSIA! Ambrosia is a mix of warm oranges, reds and even deeper, redder reds (is that a word??!) coupled with the wonderful neutrals of cream, basic grey and basic black. The patterns all work so well together with some beautifully designed papers. For those of you that have been craving a "replacement" for Black Tie, Ambrosia is it for you!
On the left layout, I featured Ambrosia Rub-ons and a hint of the dark chocolate chip micro alphas. The layout on the right features more Ambrosia rub-ons mixed with a few from past lines and some coordinating brands.

GRANOLA

This is BasicGrey's new line GRANOLA! This is an earthy line full of rich textures and patterns including wood patters, animal prints, floral and rain patterns. The colors range from the deepest purple-y blue to a light blue, soft brown and cream. Perfect for photos of your little men or anyone that loves that earthy look.
On these layouts I have used not only Granola, but the brown microchip alphas (chocolate chip), the new granola alpha, Chip sticker shapes, element stickers,and more.

And please, for more projects/layouts created using the new BG, please also see the galleries/blogs of Nic Howard, Cindy Tobey, Tammy Tutterow, Marla Kress, Erikia Ghumm, Linda Albrecht, Margaret Scarborough, Allison Kimball and Becky Fleck.

As for CHA itself, it was such a fabulous time. I was completely exhausted after not sleeping at all the night/morning I was leaving and then having booth set up, but I loved meeting so many new people and getting to see so many old friends. I have to say after a few days/nights of it all, my voice is gone, my throat is sore, I have the sniffles and I'm glad to be home. But I can't wait to do it all again in a few months! Thank you thank you thank you to all who took the time to stop by, do a make-n-take, sit and chat with me or just rush by and give me a hug. And to Linda, Summer and Kelly, especially...save me a spot for the same time next show, ok?? :)
