    Time to play! (16-Aug-07)

    I just got my Recess Basic Grey and have almost used the entrie pack. It's great paper of course but the colors are just awesome. My daughter is not in school yet but I used the papers for some fun park pics I had of her. If you have school aged children this pack is absolutely perfect-I love the notbook paper look on some of the paper and the die cuts are all school directed. There are math equations and other school related stuff on the paper, too. This is a great collection pack for all those school day pages-especially great for back to school since the paper has an "autumn" feel to it. You'll have lots of fun playing with this pack.

    GREAT DESIGN (31-Dec-07)

    I LOVE THIS NEW DESIGN BY BASIC GREY. I LOVE THAT THE PAPER IS HEAVIER THAN YOUR AVERAGE SCRAPBOOK PAPER AND HOLDS UP TO EVEN YOUR ROUGHEST DISTRESSING TECHNIQUE. THE DESIGN IS PERFECT FOR SCHOOL LAYOUTS, BUT I HAVE USED THEM FOR OTHER THEMES, JUST CHECK OUT MY GALLERY. THE RICHNESS OF THE PAPER LENDS ITSELF TO A PERFECT LOOKING LAYOUT. I LOVE THAT THE PATTERNS IN THIS PACK LIKE ALL OTHER BASIC GREY PAPER PACKS ALL COORDINATE WITH EACH OTHER, IN ANY MIX. ADD THE OTHER BASIC GREY EMBELLISHMENTS THAT COORDINATE WITH RECESS AND YOU WILL BE GUARENTEED TO HAVE A WINNING LAYOUT.

    Excellent for High School LOs (21-Dec-09)

    I knew I couldn't go wrong with this product when I ordered it and I was right! It is an awesome collection, especially for older kids, when you may not want to use the cutsy apples and big pencil papers. I will enjoy making LOs of my high school kids using this paper collection. My only regret is not ordering 2 kits, since I have 2 kids in HS.

    I am never disappointed when I order stuff from scrapbook.com-great stuff at great prices and easy ordering!

    Basic Grey always as colorful, quality paper (13-Dec-09)

    I love BasicGrey. I always make sure to get the matching cardstock and as many embellishments that match the whole set for making cards and scrapbooking.

    Recess Collection pack (13-Dec-09)

    This pack of recess paper was very bizarre and not at all what I thought recess/school paper would look like. I realize all school paper can't look the same, but this was not at all what I thought it would be and I will probably return it even though the price was great!! I have been extremely happy will all other purchases I have made, but this one just didn't click at all. I hope I don't deter someone from ordering as I am sure their style of scrapbooking just isn't as Matchy matchy as mine. The quality of the paper was great-just didn't care for the designs.

    Love this collection (21-Dec-09)

    The Recess collection is very versatile with colors and patterns that can easily translate to several different themes or events not just a school theme.

    not my style (22-Sep-08)

    I ended up using the back of the paper (white) for framing of pictures. The pp's were not pleasing at all.

    Biggest waste of money ever (15-Jan-10)

    I've heard so much about BasicGrey, so when I saw this paper was a 12 Days of Christmas deal, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a try. I have never been so disapointed. This is the ugliest paper I have ever bought. I bought 2 packs so I would have 2 of each pattern. I tried to return it, but the return shipping was going to cost me more than the paper did. The only reason I haven't thrown it in the trash all together is that I plan to use the plain white side as white paper. Don't make the mistake I did and waste your money with this pack.

  • Wonderful Collection (08-Nov-07)

    I used this pack of BG to do a trip to Washington DC and New York City that my son and choir (with mom) did in the spring. It fit great. The colors are wonderful and even though I was doing a travel type album this fit so much better with the Middle Schoolers I was scrapping. I was able to mix up bits and pieces for a unique look on many pages.

  • Good for older kids (10-Mar-08)

    I bought this because somehow I thought this would be good paper to use for scrapping pages about my older son, age 8. But many of the pages have math equations and other images that are really appropriate for older kids, not younger kids. Of course it's great designs, I just wish that I had looked at it more closely before I bought it. I would recommend it for parents of middle or high school kids, but not really younger.
