Cosmo Cricket Showcase

Cosmo Cricket is having a Design Team Call and I am throwing my hat in the ring! I consider myself a late comer to their products; before the last few months I'd only used their papers once before: on this layout (which was published in 601 Great Scrapbooking Ideas by F&W Books),

and then I used the scraps to make this birthday tag for a friend.

(The papers are from the Wanted Line)

But this year, I have fallen in love with the recent products. I got papers, rub-ons and diecuts from the Cogsmo line in my May DT kit from A Walk Down Memory Lane. I confess these were difficult papers to work with at first because they really scream BOY! Since we don't have kids (yet, according to dh Lucas) , he's the only boy around here so I started with that

But the cogwheel papers made me think of that saying about seeing the wheels in one's head turning, and led to this page about how much I am a thinker and usually lost in my own world

I used some scraps to make this card, the sentiment was cut off from the throw away strip!

I love the circuit board patterned paper as well, and it was perfect for a page about a spam email I got that promised me $500,000. I love to document things like this, they will be fun to look back on!I also used the Tank Diecuts and some blackboard chipboard on this page. Not only am I a confirmed chipboard lover, but I love using raw chipboard, so this stuff is perfect for me!

The Get Happy line plus the blackboard chipboard (which is to die for!) were part of the April kit from Scrapbook Takeout and I so loved the bright funky colours! I used the papers in this minibook about the three kittens we had last year. They've now gone off to new homes (happily) and this album helps us remember how cute they were!

I'm in the middle of working on another minibook using one of the Ruby blackboard chipboard book and the Get Happy line, so be sure to check back soon!

I've really enjoyed working with these products lately, they are a pleasure!
