BasicGrey CHA Summer '09 Releases!

It's here, it's here! Today is the opening of the Craft & Hobby Association Trade show which means I can FINALLY share some of what BasicGrey has coming your way!

I have to start with my favorite of all the lines (I've been waiting a LONG time for us to do something like it!), here is BasicGrey's first ever HALLOWEEN line. This is EERIE! Eerie is DOUBLE-SIDED and features some cool new products - awesome epoxy stickers and our 3-d pops with glitter and bling....and seriously, HOW cute are those skulls for Trick-or-Treat favors?! I'm all about those! Not to mention this lines comes with some fantastic laser cut cardstock sheets (Doilies) AND some wicked designer bling that range from spiders to cobwebs and so much more!

Eerie










Here are a few of my samples using Eerie:






How about a little Eskimo Kisses? (I adore the name of this line!) I have to admit, I don't scrap the Holidays unless I'm forced to. I just can never seem to get into it, but these papers are the first in a while that really made me want to find those cruddy pictures from Christmas morning and get them in an album! ;) Again, like some of our Holiday lines in the past, Eskimo Kisses is again DOUBLE-SIDED and comes with a variety of new products like Eerie - including the Pops, Epoxy stickers, these precious little favor boxes and so much more.

Eskimo Kisses



I just have to pop in there to talk about this product! This is new for us and will be coming out in both Eskimo Kisses and the Nook & Pantry Line. They're called "Stitched Brads" and are basically tapestry on a larger (1/2" or so) brad. They are totally divine! Just look at these designs!






Here are a couple of samples using Eskimo Kisses:





Believe it or not, this precious, vintage-inspired line was my favorite non-themed release. This is NOOK & PANTRY! I loved how the patterns went together on this line, how incredibly versatile it was (boys, girls, birthday, everyday) and that once again, we're doing a DOUBLE-SIDED line! (And seriously - those cupcake favor boxes? Could they BE any cuter? (read that as I was Chandler Bing speaking! ha!!))

Nook & Pantry









Here are my samples using Nook & Pantry. (See what I mean about it being so versatile? Love this line!):




And a little mini recipe album:





And finally a little Indian Summer! I love love love the colors in this line. LOVE them. They are rich and bold and absolutely perfect for fall or anything where you want a little drama! And the Element Stickers in this line? I am completely in love!

Indian Summer








These are my samples using Indian Summer. I want to frame the first one to use as wall our in our entry way. I love the "home-y" feel of it!


And a little mini album celebrating my love of fall!





I hope you have enjoyed this peek and it's been worth waiting for! Stay tuned tomorrow - I'll be back with a few final products to share along with the one that has been "my baby" the past couple years. I can't wait to share it with you but I think it deserves a post all it's own! (hee!)

Have a fantastic day!
xoxo

Just read that BG is coming out with a 2010 calendar. I loved the 2009 one and am thrilled to see it make a comeback this year! Can't wait!

Finally, could you please tell me what font you used on your recipe book? I think it matches some American Crafts rub-ons that I have and would like to know what the font is. Thanks!

Kelly, I was wondering, how you do make the shaped paper? I noticed on one of your first layouts using Eerie you have an orange shaped background. Do you use a template to cut it that way?
