A Yummy New Line from Basic Grey: Two Scoops

Send to Kindle

You know, I need to find out what’s behind the name of the company, Basic Grey. Because when I see their scrapbooking lines, Basic and Grey are two of the LAST things on my mind! Here is their new line called Two Scoops…

BG 2 Scoops

Here are some threads on 2PEAS and CKMB where this new line is being discussed. The 2peas thread has links to all the samples I’m showing below. Here is what Ms. Kelly Goree from Basic Grey says in her 2peas post:

“Hi, everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to introduce you all to BasicGrey’s newest line, Two Scoops! It’s yummy, sherbet-inspired color palette really lends itself to all types of layouts from birthday to Valentines to Wedding or anything in between. For me, though, it’s the adorable embellishment stickers that come with the collection pack that really makes the line. And just you wait – it gets better….this line will also have some gorgeous stamps, a rub-on book with such super-cute phrases, and much more! This line will be shipping soon to a store near you, so be watching. I bet you can’t stop at just Two Scoops!”

Use with inkpads, paint, or scrapbook-safe markers to add playful accents in any color.” Here they are:

I love about 80% of this line. If they would please stop using that weird flower on everything, I would be 100% happy! (See the Flower Swash Stamps?? That big flower in the top middle…). That same flower was in the Infuse line too, which was the only thing I didn’t like about that line. Time for a new iconic flower, Basic Grey! (Oh, lordy, please hear my plea so I can be totally infatuated with BG again). Do YOU like the goofy flower they use now?

Other than that, I LUH-HUH-HUV this new line by Basic Grey. Even the names are cute and oh-so-sherbet-y. My favorite items are all of the rub ons, the Sweet Sentiments Stamps, the Glazed Brads and the Chipsticker Alpha. Let’s hear your reviews – give us the scoop (sorry, it had to be said…).

    Whoo-hooo! My thread made your blog!! Yeah, baby!!!

    I love their new line. I do wish that I had more use for it though. With just a son and hubby it’s not that useful. I will be buying some of the blue and green stuff. Love that Watermelon Ice!!! :D

    Yup – I do like the looks of it…..but yeah – what’s with just the girly rub-ons?? Pastels in terms of paper I think there is lots of use for and that is cool…. but I don’t like how those rub-ons are only girl phrases. I know that there must be phrases out there that could be used in conjunction (………..not that I can actually think of any myself right this very second! :lol: )
