here is a pic that they posted on FB.

do you get everything that is shown in the box? or do you just get the bundle that's packaged in one plastic package? see how there are a bunch of packets in one box? do you get one packet or everything in the box? i'm just curious because it would be an awesome deal if you got everything you see in one box

I'm pretty sure you get everything in one box. UPS says mine will be here Friday...so I guess I'll find out then.

can someone ask on the FB page? that seems like the best way to get an answer and put us all out of our suspense

{I don't have FB or I would do it and report back}

From looking at the picture, I would assume what you see in a plastic sleeve bundle is what you would get. That is an AWFUL lot of product if you get all that is in that one box. But I didn't order nor have I ever ordered any boxes in the past from anyone, so what do I know?

I bet it is the one sleeve too, and there are several of people orders in one brown box.

I would say per sleeve, too. NO WAY are they shipping a box like that for that price.

I just pitched the question on their FB page. I'll update if there is a reply. They also indicated they would be doing another one in the spring. Love me some Basic Grey! Can't wait to get my box!!!

i didn't see the question answered on FB but yeah, i bet it is just one packet too. my rational mind said it was probably just one packet but my wishful, hoarder crafter mind hoped it would be the whole box. LOL.

when people start getting their "boxes" i hope someone will post a pic of the actual contents.

I would think it just be the bundle in just one of those plastic sleeves.

It's got to be just what's in one little plastic sleeve. It's about $120 worth of product , right? We all know you can spend $120 at the LSS and carry it out in one hand. There's NO way you get the whole box for $38.

I'm totally trying to convince myself that its the whole box. This is what I'm thinking (dreaming),
a. Its a warehouse box sale and they showed boxes. A+B = C

b. If 1 collection is $18 - $20 and you get $150 in stuff, then you would receive 8 packs - how many are in each box in the photo?

c.I really want it to be the whole box because that is super fun and exciting.

Ta-dah - that is my case. Anyone convinced?

Gotta be one packet... for instance II see 2 chip stickers in the front of one of those sleeves- that's $16 right there

It has to be the little one. They posted on their FB page that international shipping was $50. No way they're shipping that whole huge box outside the US for $50.

jillien--i like where your head is at. let's go with your theory, if only until reality hits and we find out it really is just one packet.

I work for a scrapbook paper company and my guess is that you get what is in a "sleeve", not the entire box. I have not looked on their FB page or website, but if they are selling $120.00 worth of product for $38.00, the sleeve looks more like $120.00 to me, rather than the entire box.

Our recent sale included over $120 of product for $30 and it all fit in a pizza sized box, so the plastic sleeve makes more sense to me.

Hey everyone! Your box will contain the contents of "one sleeve". The photo is of some of the orders before boxing. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for the reply, Melanie. Much appreciated. I can't wait to see what's in mine. Have to say, 99% of my layouts are made with BG paper & products. I Basic Grey!

Just to let you know, when they have their sale at the same time as the scrapbook convention, the boxes that they sell are pizza style boxes. So my guess would be that you would be receiving a sleeve of what you see.

UPS. i bought 2 kits and they are both amazing. they come with 50 sheets of paper (some double sided but not all), 2 kit packs like a card kit and a mini album, 6or 7 packs of embellis plus 3 sheets of alphas and a 12x12 sticker sheet plus a doilie overlay of some sort. It is a TON of product. Just a few duplicate sheets of paper in one and more in another but the duplicates were mostly double sided. They shipped UPS. Totally worth the $$$. The paper is yummy - a few sheets here and there that were not my taste and a bit of stuff I already have because I *LOVE* basic Grey. hope that is helpful!

Mine came today, too. Unfortunately, I left my camera at school so I can't show pictures.

I bought two and they were completely different assortments. One of them is absolutely amazing and I love love love all the goodies! The other had fewer packages of embellishments and letter sticker sheets, but included a board book and wedding and baby themed items. The second one had more repeat papers as well.

I would have been disappointed had I only received the second set of supplies, but the gorgeous goodies in the first sleeve makes the order totally worthwhile!

I hope everyone loves their stuff.

My BG warehouse box came today!! Yah!! I have been so anxious to see what I would get since I have never ordered a warehouse box from any company. I was hoping I would feel like I got a great deal.

Well, BG did not disappoint! Love all of it! Some of the papers are duplicated but I have to say the dups are of papers I would have bought 2 or more of anyway.

Very pleased. Can't wait for the spring warehouse box sale!!
