Basic Grey Warehouse Box
It is a bittersweet day in my craft room. My Basic Grey Warehouse box arrived!!! Yeah!!!
And it will be the last new BG collections I recieve. Boo hoo!
Basic Grey is leaving the papercrafting business. I happened to read about this on one of the message boards back in January. They had just announced that day along wit an offer to buy a warehouse box for $39 + shipping. I couldn't get signed on that night so I called them the next day. There were only 9 boxes left when I ordered. Yikes, I almost didn't get one!
The boxes were not to be shipped until mid-February as they would contain brand new product from their new lines. I only found that out because I asked if the boxes were different. Anyway, that was still fine by me. So for about $50, I would get $130 worth of product.
Late this week, I've read many people saying what was in their box and frankly I was set to be disappointed. Some of the selections didn't sound that great. I think I got a good one though.
Today the box arrived and I'm sharing in this YouTube video. You'll see that I did indeed get product from all the new lines. There isn't much from Saturday morning. I may order a few other pieces while these products are still available for purchase at scrapbook.com or acherrryontop.com (and maybe other places, I don't know).
All in all, I'm very happy with my box. It does not contain the promised Best of BG pad but they sent a lot of the new 12x12 paper so I think that more than makes up for it.
I hadn't realized how well Dear Heart and Hillside go together. The colors are much the some so I'll be mixing these.
Now I just need to figure out what to do with those wooden plant stakes???
