Finally!

We were so excited when the manufacturers told us stuff was shipping 'as soon as they got back from CHA'.
Well, we waited and waited and FINALLY - stuff is starting to trickle in.

We received a lot of boxes from SEI today that contained 2 of their new lines - Bridgeport and Mimosa.






I can't tell you how excited we are to get these 2 lines in. They are FABULOUS! I know people aren't big fans of SEI but you need to take a second look at these! The beautiful Spring colors and patterns will win you over. And the embellishments have only gotten better. They offer several different kinds of chipboard embellishments with glitter and foil accents, epoxy brads, rubons and even acrylic stamps to match the lines.
And the papers! Oh man the papers! Glitter, varnish and foil. Each paper is 12x12 and double-sided. The front has some sort of foil, varnish or glitter accent on it while the backs are plain paper.

The possibilities are endless with these lines.

You can see more of these lines in the CHA Gallery HERE.

And just when you thought that was all for today - American Crafts dropped off a nice big box for us too. New Thickers, Remarks stickers, rubons and a fresh stock of Slick Writers!

A surprise favorite from CHA for me was the new screen printer from Provo Craft. I thought I wouldn't be interested, but I SO want one! LOL!

Anna said...

My favorite is the all the new Basic Grey lines. The small sneaks weren't enough for me to fall in love but now that I've seen the whole lines, i want them all!

Sue said...

I quite liked what I saw of Basic Grey's Porcelain but was apprehensive about the colours being washed out. But the photos really don't do justice to the real thing. They're gorgeous!

Kimmie said...

im not sure...i really did like them all but i would say the Basic Grey Lime Rikey. I wasnt fond of it at first but now i think i need it

Denise said...

I didn't think I'd like Marrakech but after seeing some close-ups I can't wait to get my hands on it.

..feli.. said...

I love almost anything Basic Grey! Their Marrakech line is just great!!

Ailei- Adeline said...

I thought I will never like Basic Grey's lines cos I find them too flowery and I am terrible at coordinating patterned papers, but after seeing the Marrakech line, I am definitely sold!

Lime Rickey is definitely my kind of thing ! Marrackech I wasn't sure at first but after looking at the photos, I think they will be prefect for some beach layouts !

YourScrapbookStash.com said...

Basic Grey isn't one of my faves but after seeing these lines in person, I definitely want these new papers.
Lime Rickey is fun! The rubons and other embellishments that go with this line are perfect. Some of the cute (easy) cards I saw on display make me want the entire line.

Good news - the first teo BG lines are shipping soon so your wait is almost over.

Denise said...

Also I wanted to tell you that I have been spreading the word about your store at Willow Traders. I'm hoping you get lots of new and repeating customers. I need you to stay in business so I can get all your great deals.

Alyssa said...

I like the new BG lines. I can't say thay are my favorite, but haing them in my hands might change my mind. :)

Samantha said...

Yup, I pretty much love them all. :-) Mimosa is a great name too! If I didn't like it already I would buy it just because it's named Mimosa.

I love Basic Grey! It would be great to win a set.

Erika M. said...

Wasn't too sure about the new Basic Grey lines but I've seen so many great projects - it's definitely grown on me!

Corey said...

oh the discounts!!!

I honestly have to say that SEI has shocked me. I've only used their Dill Blossom line and never liked anything else - now I want BOTH of their new collections!

Joli said...

I am really not a Basic Grey fan, I fell like it is all the same. My mind was changed when I saw the Marrakech line, the colors are so rich! I love it and can't wait to get my hands on some.

Whozz Me???... said...

Joyce said...

I'd never heard about Webster until seeing all the posts about CHA. Of course, I always love EVERYTHING Basic Grey!

Renoa said...

I was totally blown away by the new range of HAMBLY!! Their screen prints are soo adorable! Made me want to have a child straight away! lol

Catherine aka ScrapsOnABudget said...

I am surprised I like Sassafras's Vintage Yummy. I'm not usually one for "vintage" anything, but this one I really like!
Thanks for sharing
God Bless

Tanya said...

My fave Basic Grey line is Lime Rickey. I love the bright colours and the pure energy that the papers have. And those buttons??? MUST HAVE!

Kate said...

BG Lime Rickey has been a fave ever since i saw it.. it's just so fun with that burst of colors! i've already thought of LOs and projects for it once I get my hands on them!!

Keiko said...

Cosmo Cricket's Everafter line.
I couldn't expect such a beautiful design from Cosmo, cuz' their items always cute. I really love it!
BG is the one always makes me feel whichever photos are I can find a solution, I love this winter season design, too!

I am a huge Basic Grey fan and they never disappoint, I love all of their newest releases!

I also agree with what "Denise" and "Ailei- Adeline" said in their comments! Totally agree... so I guess I will say I was surprised just as they were! :-)

As always, thanks for the opportunity to try and win some awesome stuff!

Happy Valentine's Day!
