BasicGrey Clippings + Paper Cottage Blog Hop



 

*********CONTEST IS NOW OVER! Winner announced below!*********


Of the 210 entries submitted within the time frame, the winner is SARA GARCIA!! Sara, I've sent you an email! CONGRATULATIONS!


Welcome to the BasicGrey Blog Hop to celebrate the release of our Q2 lines - CLIPPINGS and PAPER COTTAGE! To launch these gorgeous lines in style the BasicGrey design team along with a few special guests are sharing with you their favorite collection + embellishment and then giving you the chance to win them! Fun, right?!
So as much as I truly adore both collections, I can't be a mom of three boys without the scales dipping in favor of CLIPPINGS! The alphabet paper, the grids, the gorgeous colors...oh how I love this line....
Secrets, drama, intrigue—BasicGrey’s Clippings line reads like a mystery novel you can’t put down. Filled to the brim with ransom notes, typewriter keys, wool herringbone suit, a blue floral dress pattern, and deep red lipstick, you’ll want to read every note and memorize every detail.

Do you SEE that alphabet paper?! And the typewriter keys....and the grid?! (swoon).

Probably my favorite embellishment (but I don't want to give anything away ;))

And let me tell you, these mini envies are even cuter in person! I think I need a special drawer to hold my collection!

Element stickers are always one of my fave embellishments...and just LOOK at these! The tabs, labels & typewriter..oh, my!

Hello, scrabble tiles!

And if these aren't the cutest alpha stickers ever!
So as I mentioned to celebrate my love of Clippings the release of these two amazing lines ;) I get to give away some goodies!! Up for grabs is a 6x6 paper pad of Clippings along with the adorable paper garland you see above (one of my faves!)!  Simply leave a comment here by 12:01 AM EST TONIGHT, May 15th, telling me what you love best about this collection (or Paper Cottage - I'll take those too ;)) and you're entered to win! Please only one comment per person!
Now to get in on even MORE wonderful Paper Cottage or Clippings goodies, hop on over and visit the talented BG Design Team member Els Brige and see what she has in store for you! Remember, if you find a link that doesn’t work, you can always hop back to the BasicGrey blog for a list of direct links to all the blogs in the hop.


*********CONTEST IS NOW OVER! Winner announced above!*********
Have a great day and good luck!
