  1. Yippee! A blog from Basic Grey. That’s great.

    I would like to see many layouts for example from Kelly Gorree and Nic Howard! And I like double layouts!

    You made my day.

    Greetings from Germany,

    BasicGrey has a blog!
    I can’t wait to say WHATEVER you have to offer but would really like some inspiration on mixing up your paper ranges. I have lots of odd sheets left from so many different ranges and I’m not quite sure how to mix and match.

BasicGrey has been my favourite paper manufacturer for as long as i have been making cards, and this is LONG overdue! i can’t wait to see your designers in action, and i’d love to see fan ideas and submissions, but mostly i’m anxious to get the first sneaks at new products and lines, because i need ’em all! :D congratulations on the new blog, and WELCOME!

  9. Yeah! Finally a BG blog :)!! I’d love to see an occasional “retro” BG post where all the featured products use older lines. I think I have almost *EVERY* line ever made so it would be nice to see some of the older stuff being featured once in a while.

  10. I of course want to see projects using Basuc Grey and see all the new stuff coming out. Love giveaways and I would really appreciate being able to subscribe so that I get each new entry as an email. That way I don;t miss anything by forgetting to come to the blog. Thanks for asking what we’d like to see!

  11. I loved your “old” e-magazine “Just the Basics”. I REALLY miss it so I’m looking forward to this new venue and seeing what it has to offer. I love EVERYTHING Basic–ideas, tips, techniques. Guess I’m just a BASICS kind of gal!

  14. Since I have soooo much BG paper, etc. in my stash, I’m so stoked to see a blog focussed solely your goodies. Yay! Like others, I’m excited to see the new products used in projects that will inspire and generate excitement in my own projects, but I’d also like to see features where the older stuff is highlighted and we are challenged to use it in a new/different way. Anyway, welcome to blogland!! xx

  18. Scrapbooking layouts and card ideas. I’m a big BG fan. I bought many BG products and never able to use them up. So it’d be great if you could show us how to use up all the BG leftovers (like projects made using a few BG collections together).

    Hope I’m not too late for the draw! =)

I’d love to see a very wide verity of paper projects on your site… anything you can use paper for :-)

  23. Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    at the net the easiest thing to consider of. I say to you,
    I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks think about issues that they plainly do not recognise about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also
    outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , people could
    take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.


  24. Open the valves for the drain to remove the excess water that may fill the region above the pipe.
    Most wringer washers use a drain hose, to drain the lake out.

    When my Kenmore 600 series automatic washer wouldn’t agitate recently, I spent of a week searching the ‘net for a DIY repair guide.
