I ordered two sets of this collection pack. One for myself so I could make a small photo scrapbook of my first newborn grandson to give to my son and daughter-in-law and one to give to them so they could add on to the album and we could work together on it. Since they live in Lake Tahoe, CA., and don't have a lot of options for scrapbook supplies, I thought this was a good way to introduce scrapbook.com to them. I live in the San Francisco bay area and try to visit them as often as I can. As my grandson grow and I use up my supply of this paper, I'm sure I will order more. I LOVE BasicGrey paper and products!!
I am getting ready to scrap a lot of photos of my grandsons, so I purchased Basic Grey's Oh! Baby Boy pak before they discontinue it. When I received it, I sat down and went through the whole pack, sheet by sheet. I buy a lot of my paper in "collection paks" and I am used to loving most of it and then there are a few sheets that I don't care for and use just for layering or accents. But I love each and every sheet of Oh! Baby Boy. It is so awesome that I ordered one for my daughter who also scraps. I am very, very happy with Oh! Baby Boy and I highly recommend it!!!
I feel madly in love with this paper pack as soon as I saw it! It's gorgeous and perfect for any and all little boy pages. After I used up almost all of my paper on a little boy album, I found that the scraps were super easy to convert into any gender/event pages. I bought another pack just to integrate into my other event scrapbooking pages. I even used some in a wedding album! I love the versatility of Basic Grey! It's my favorite brand of paper!
I have bought this paper twice since it came out and used every single scrap. I've made many mini albums for friends new babies and countless baby or child birthday ards with my scraps. The papers are VERY easy to use for other projects as well, not just babys and not just boys. I am very sorry that this pack is being retired. Sure hope I can get another before it does.
I've used this paper on quite a few pages - baby related and not. I've loved it so much that I've rebought the papers I've used so that when I need them again, I have them. The paper material is high quality. The designs are beautiful and versatile.

This paper is perfect for "little boy" layouts! I was trying to find a paper set that was good for boy layouts but I didn't want bright bold colors. The pastels in this pack fit my photos perfectly!
I highly recommend this set for anyone doing "little boy" pages!
My only drawback to Basic Greys sets are that they only include one sheet of each paper instead of 2. Since I scrap mostly 2 page LO's, having 2 of each sheet would have been nice.
I found this packet in the clearance section, and I'm sad to see it go. These papers are perfect for the baby boy album I am working on. I've looked for other papers, and they are either solid cardstock, or very boy-themed. These are a perfect blend of boy-ish colors, without being solid or too "theme-y". The patterns used are darling and vary from boy themes to just stuff you can use for a boy.
