Introducing ORIGINS & SUGAR RUSH by BasicGrey

It's here! Today's the day! It is my honor to introduce you to the two newest lines by BasicGrey - ORIGINS & SUGAR RUSH! We have quite a few new products that we're super-excited about so they are highlighted following press release! I am also going to share the entire Q4 catalog as well as some layout samples with you for your viewing pleasure! I hope you enjoy! :)

ETA: These lines should begin shipping in mid-December - just in time for the holidays!! :)

*************************************************************
All the Things You Love with the new BasicGrey Winter Release!

Is there anything better than being in love? The happy feelings, the smiles, the knowing looks? We feel the same way about our new winter product release! Fall in love with our two new collections, new additions, exclusive limited edition Delta stamps, new Bling and Opaline designs, and much, much more!

Pucker up and prepare for Sugar Rush™, a double-sided paper-crafting collection of bubblegum pink and zesty orange with delicate and decadent blue and green icing. Add your own ingredients for a burst of savory style. Tasty treats.Sophisticated sprinkles. There’s nothing sugar-free here.

Origins™ is a naturally unique blend of enticing colors that are basically, purely beautiful. Good-for-you greens meet lively
lemon yellow and artful, earthy browns in this double-sided paper collection that incites happiness and comfort. A healthy back-to-basics dose of creativity never hurts!

Both collections contain favorites like chipboard, brads, buttons, rub-ons, stamps, Woolies, Canvas, Pops, Epoxies and more (including some new items… read on below!)!

Each paper collection contains eighteen double-sided papers.

Ready to get attached to something new? Don’t be embarrassed to show off the new Bloomers! Fabric meets flower with these modern, stitched and buttoned, ready-to-add embellishments for your next project.

Got Writer’s Block? You’ll want some because our Writer’s Block is a journaling set with two temporary-adhesive note pads, two stacks of die-cuts and a mini-note pad, the perfect combination to help anyone journal soft-hearted sentiments.

Why go with boring office-supply embellishments? Our new Clips are decorative coordinating paper clips that come in all types of unique epoxy finishes, perfectly matched to our newest collections.

Don’t fall to Pieces just yet… Because our Pieces collection will leave you breathless. This set of seventeen die-cuts for journaling, titles, or decorating fun may be more than your heart can take…

Endlessly-useful, unique and fun to play with, new Varnish stickers are pink-tinted transparent stickers coordinating with Sugar Rush in swirl and heart shapes--perfect for layering over patterned papers, titles, and photos for a sweet and subtle spot of color.

You’ll be passionate about our new Page Kits! Available in new Origins and Sugar Rush, these time-saving, purely-professional looking creations are ready to go. Each kit includes die-cuts, rub-ons, chip shapes, stickers and detailed easy-to-assemble instructions to make one double-page and two one-page layouts. These kits will leave you with plenty of extras leftover to play with as well.

Our rub-ons have been favorites for a reason… so let’s add a twist this season! How about some sparkle! We’re rolling out our new Sparkling Rub-ons, your favorite rub-ons now with self-adhesive rhinestones taking your creativity to the next level.

Could we possibly include more to love? Of course! How about our new $1.50 6x12 Mini-monograms and Micro Monograms! Yes, for just $1.50 retail, you can add our fun new fonts and new teeny tiny ½” micros to any layout. Good things come in small packages!

Since Valentine’s is just around the corner, how about a sweet treat? We’ve developed some lovable creations like our new Lover’s Coupon Book and Love Notes – eight mini note cards with envelopes, perfect for sending a quick “I love you” to someone special.

What can you get for $1.80 retail? More than you can imagine (and everything you always wanted) with the new Bling It, Opaline, and Bling It On creations. Bling is the thing – self-adhesive rhinestones in favorite charming shapes like flowers,
hearts and doves. For a little more pizzazz, try Bling It On – a rub-on/rhinestone blend. Or go for the adorable Opaline, half-pearls in shapes like hearts, flowers and stylish free forms.

Another $1.80 retail deal? How about our Limited Edition Delta series stamps? All three of our previous collections sold out in record time, so you’ll want to grab these lovable collections FAST! Perfect mini-sized stamps equal large sentiments on your next project.

You can check out all of these new products and much, much more at our website, www.basicgrey.com. BasicGrey prides itself on creating innovative, value-driven, high-quality product. Simply the best – that’s BasicGrey.

Here are a few samples using ORIGINS! I adore how versatile this line is! Where else can you scrap a girlie-girl layout, then turn around and do one of your boys collecting fossils??! Well you can with this line!

This is my darling niece in her Easter Dress. I've saved these pictures since APRIL waiting for the perfect paper and it's finally arrived! This layout was based on a super cool sketch by my friend Becky Fleck. (LOVE that girl's sketches and you can visit her at www.pagemaps.com!)


This layout features our new BLOOMERS as well as element stickers from the collection pack! (I adore our element stickers!)

And as promised, here are my boys at the Falls of the Ohio hunting for fossils and generally being rowdy boy s! :)


The above layout features the new MINI MONOS and MICRO ALPHA stickers. LOVE LOVE LOVE these! And I just have to mention the DIVINE GRAPH PAPER solids that this line offers - they line up perfectly for the micro alpha stickers and it just makes me happy!
This album is being offered as a class to local retailers! Check with a retailer near you to get in on this fun "With Love" album! It's got pockets and pages galore!


On this project you can see our new PIECES as well as the Clips! So much fun!











Here are some examples using Sugar Rush!
This layout features my boys and a recent trip to Steak-n-Shake for old fashioned milk shakes! We're working out a "reward system" to promote good behavior in our house! ha!


This layout features our Sugar Rush CLIPS and some awesome element stickers from the collection pack. I seriously can't get enough of those and hoard several sheets from each line!

This is my best friend and her adorable daughter. I miss them so as they live so far away but they are two of my favorite people in the world! This layout features the Chip Sticker shapes as well as some of our new rub-ons. This is such *fun* line!



And finally here are some cards that are part of another class being offered to retailers! Check with one near you to find out how to take this double-page layout class with 3 bonus cards!


These cards features some of the new BLOOMERS, MINI MONOS and VARNISH stickers as well as some WRITER'S BLOCK! I threw it all in there and it worked!

TGI (even thought it's the 13th!) Friday! It's going to be a lucky one, I just know it!
xoxo,
k.

Keri Lee Sereika said...

MMMM deliciousness.... :D

Dale P. said...

Oh, I just love the new origins line. But I had a question - if we don't have a local retailer how can we get the class kit for the Origin album??

Kelly Goree said...

Hi Dale - I'm afraid you can't as this is going to retailers only at present. You might consider finding an LSS that is offering it and seeing if they will order you/ship you one. Sorry I can't be of more help!

marla said...

WOW those new collections are truly dynomite!!! LOVE THEM!!!

Patti said...

Origins... OH YEAH!!!!

SF said...

Hi Kelly
Totally amazing collections! Thanks for sharing.
I am a retailer, and would like to know if the retailer class kits come with step-by-step instructions? And are they packaged individually for 12 students? I really love the Origins mini album. Thanks!

Kelly Goree said...

Yes, it comes with full color instructions exactly like all the other classes BasicGrey offers. They are sold in increments of 12 which provides you all you need for the class, however the final kitting (ie: putting in the 6x6 pad, the album, a package of the clips, etc.) falls to the retailer). HTH!

Romy said...

Wow, these collections are both stunning, especially the Origins series. I totally love your work with the new collections. You're always doing the best scrapping!

Jane said...

Oh......I just got brain freeze!!!! So much SUGAR on this post!!!! Basic Grey NEVER disappoints!!!

Lorelle M said...

I love these lines!!
And I love your creations with them .... seriously, you rock :)

Amber said...

Kelly I always like to see samples to see if the product will really work, and yours are beautiful- thanks so much for posting those! I like both lines but I think I favor Origins. Very nice!

Lisa VdV said...

jennmom2000 said...

Fleursbydesign said...

Both lines are awesome!

Kelly in Cincy, GO BUCKS! said...

I love your LO's, Kelly! I have two boys and I loved seeing how you used the Origins collection for the Falls page.

Tabitha K said...

I Love, Love, Love the Sugar Rush line! Perfect for lots of baby girl pages!

Emily Pitts said...

again, i think i'm rather happy with these new lines. i loved june bug. like lemonade way more than i thought. loved nook and pantry. i'm thinking these new ones are going to be a part of my stash sometime soon. thanks for the peeks. :)

Kirsty Wiseman said...

That Origins line was made especially for me, I know it....so Thank BG for thinking of me!!!!

Beth Marchitello said...

How can we find which retailers will be teaching the Origins book? I must have it! :) Would Archivers be one of the retailers?

Thanks!!

Kelly Goree said...

Hi Beth. Unfortunately I don't have a list of retailers who have bought this class. You might have some luck calling the offices at BasicGrey (801.544.1116) and see if they could provide you with that information. Archiver's most likely won't do this class as they develop and teach their own for the most part.

HTH!

Carmen O. said...

OH MY such yumminess! Love the versatility of both lines. Can't wait to my my mitts on these!

Kristine said...

both of these collections look fabulous! I really love the mini album ;-)
