At least, I *think* this is Hopscotch. The Peas are TALKING ABOUT IT. All it says is “Coming Soon,” so I’m not sure if that’s the one the original poster was referring to.
So far, a lot of them are passing on it. I’m actually diggin’ it. I love the color combo … seems very versatile for lots of layouts. I also like that background they show … classic BG white background. It’s like cardstock but 10 times better :)
ETA 11/19/10: Well, it’s later the same day and much has changed, LOL. You can now see the entire “Hopscotch” collection HERE on the BG website. I highly recommend that you watch THIS VIDEO for a great look at each and every piece of it.
After seeing the whole thing, I’m going to give it an 8 out of 10 on the “Scrapbook Obsession How Much Do I Love It Scale.” I still do love the color palette … very pretty and soft and versatile. I assume it’s a Valentine’s Day collection based on its release date, but it’s not over-the-top, lovey dovey, Valentine-y so you can definitely use it for other things.
I adore the hopscotch paper, stickers, and rub-ons. I also love the word search paper and some of the smaller patterns. Personally, I don’t scrap with a lot of flowers and butterflies, so that’s my only holdback on this collection. But there’s definitely enough other elements I can use to say that I’ll be buying this it.
When does it come out, you ask? At the end of the video, they said it will be shipping to stores in December. Just in time for your Christmas pressie! You know, the one you buy for yourself because no one in your life knows the full extent of your Basic Grey Addiction. Go ahead, you deserve it ;)
I’m going to assume that Memory Works will be carrying it, if you’d like to purchase it online … here’s my WEBSITE.
Okay, now that you’ve seen the whole thing, what do you think?
Not sure what I think about Hopscotch-I think I need to see more of the papers to decide.
I so don’t need more Basic Grey paper but they keep making cute stuff, and I keep buying it. :)
Basic Grey is going to bankrupt me! I still need to see more, but even for lines that I’m not in love with, I still buy a few papers and one or two embellishments. Can’t wait to see more.
love it. of course. i love anything bg. but, I have no idea what i’d use it for. It will prob go in my BG Paper sorter for me to keep and look at lol.
I really like it. I’m not sure what the peas don’t like about it.
Hey, just stopped by to say “hi”. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving holiday!!
