Have you seen the sneaks of the 2 new lines? I blogged 'em HERE. Can't wait to see more!

What do you think of them?

I read that too. It wouldn't surprise me. That's how they released "Serendipity" and "Shine On." I don't have a Joann's anywhere near me. Last time a very sweet Pea was so kind to pick some up and send it to me. She even used coupons, got a great price, and refused to take full retail from me

I may be asking for a favor again Peas!

It's more like one line with two paper collections in it, because the embellishments seem to be in common. We'll see if it's only going to be sold at Joann's and Studio Calico kits, or if BG are going to extend the distribution. I hope they'll sell it to all retailers.

Thanks Margreta! I will update my blog post. The site I saw it on had it listed as sneaks for 2 separate lines but it does indeed look like 1 line with 2 paper pad choices.

I hope it's sold to other retailers, not just Joann's. That said, if Fact & Fiction and Serendipity and Shine On are somehow designed differently/exclusively for Joann, I say keep it exclusive! These 4 have been my favorite Basic Grey by far in recent years. It reminds me of "old school" BG and all the reasons I became a fan in the first place.

Seems like the trend is moving toward the Studio Calico look....which is - sadly - not me in the paper realm. I am sure they will be great for someone....

Some of the embellies look really neat though.

I agree---they look just like Studio Calico--which is NOT my style at all. Yuck.

WHAT has happened to my Basic Grey!?!?!?

I guess I better start hoarding what collections I have left.....

I love them both! I really LOVE the embellishments. I had grown tired of Basic Grey for a few years but the past 18 months has really brought me back around!

The only drawback is that my JoAnn's didn't carry the first two exclusive lines so I never got to see them. So, I hope either they aren't exclusive OR my J's gets them in this time


Have a great day!

OMgosh...LOVE the fact portion of the line. Sort of like clippings with the fun snip-its. And those flair stickers! I already see one that my son will want me to use!

I'm not in love with it, I like the SC trend, but I will have to see it in person. I like some bits and pieces but I don't think I will be buying the entire collection.

I've really liked these exclusive lines.

I also missed out on the Serendipity and Shine line but I will not miss out on these too hopefully. But my local J's is very small so hopefully I can find these online somewhere.

Does not seem like BG at all, but most of their newer lines have felt that way for me. I like some of the papers, but not many.

I am not typically a BG fan (at least since the olden days of Obscure), but I love these lines. The embellishments are wonderful. I am really hoping our J's has one of their 30 or 40% off of scrap stuff when they finally get this in!
