My favorite idea in the Basic Grey newsletter would be the cards. They're so beautiful, fun and colorful! I love it :)

Stacy said...

I loved the layout with the vampire! It was so cool and that pic was wicked!!!!!

I loved the story "Becoming Mrs. Cleaver." I feel the same way that Maggie does/did. My mom and grandmother are fantastic cooks. My 2nd daughter loves to cook. I'm glad she got the itch. I have started to collect family recipes for her. This collection would be a great way to present them to her. Right now they are paper/notecards-nothing fancy. I will have to look at this collection a bit more closely for this gift.
Thank you for the giveaway!

I really liked the recipe box and the containers that are decorated!! They would make great gifts!!

Donna said...

I have to say I think the little outfit made by Heather Bowser using the Figgy Pudding fabrics was the cutest thing I've ever seen! Plus, I just love those papers...too bad they're discontinued :-(

LISA said...

I just love that precious little outfit!!!! I have some Basic Grey fabric by Moda, and it is so beautiful!! I made a gorgeous apron!!

Abby said...

I love the page Basic Inspiration...the altered tins turned out so cute! I also like the tags on the first page. Thanks for the chance.

Great cards and layouts in this newsletter. I LOVE their papers and products.

Pam said...

My favorite is the chicken pot pie recipe- looks like I'll be making that this winter!

Brenda Lubrant said...

I just love the Nook and Pantry line. I especially liked the mini recipe book and the story of daughter becoming like mother. I think that is so true!

holly said...

I went to the Basic Grey newsletter and they had plenty of really clever and cute ideas. I think the one I thought I would enjoy the most was the class teaching you to make a collection of 8 original cards. Awesome.

Love the Offbeat cards - very cute and the sketch rocks. I am going to give it a go!

Linda F. said...

I love the new line, Nook & Pantry. And the little mini-book right at the top of the newsletter is just adorable!

Created for this... said...

what great ideas but my favorite is the recipe album on the first page.

Margo said...

Loved the outfit sewn with Basic Grey material!
And also the Mrs Cleaver story. Sometimes I think I have becomed my mother-and it happened overnight-so it seems. Maybe the realization comes over night and the transistion isn't so quick!?

Paper Dolls said...

The adorable little mini book... and the paper!

sweet craf-tea chick said...

I liked the basic sketch and samples of scrapbook pages made using the sketch. TFS!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

I always love the sketch they do every month and how they use the paper. I am a BG fan and always love seeing the newsletter.

Laura said...

I loved the recipe box. Great gift idea!

I liked the recipie book and the altered tins. The baby outfit was adorable also - too bad I don;t sew well.

Natalie said...

I loved the tins at the end! They are really cute and like the article said they can be used for gifts. I am going to have to try that now.

Laura said...

I liked the picture of the recipe mini book that accompanied the first article and the cool altered recipe box. Something like that would make a great welcome-to-the-family gift for a new sister-in-law, etc.

Vijaya Siddharth said...

Shantha said...

I really like the altered tins. What great gifts they would make. The card class is something I would definitely buy if they go up for sale.

Wanda said...

I loved everything in the newsletter, but my favorite thing was the article by Maggie Koller and her delicious recipes! I, too, am finding myself becoming more and more like my Mom as I grow older :)

Thanks for the opportunity to comment on the newsletter.

I Love the canister idea, especially since out kitchen is mostly mute colors. So this is a great way to bring some life into the cooking area!

klasickewpie said...

I enjoy their "Eye Spy" to see what neat things they've spotted. I like that they are searching blogs for great ideas just like the rest of us.

divester said...

I liked the basic inspiration. The tins were really cute. The whole newsletter was really good.

Carole Stirrat said...

It's a tough decision between the card class and the figgy pudding fabric that made that adorable girls outfit!

Sophia said...

The cards were totally beautiful...

lillianchild said...

Favorite thing? the glimmer mist and Tim Holtz stickles - the flea market kit - what's NOT to love??!!

Michelle W. said...

Love the cards. I have my Nook&Pantry paper so I can play at making cards too! Fabric...I didn't even know Basic Gray patterns came in fabric. Where do you purchase this fabric? Thanks for the give away!!!
