Did I Miss the Deadline?

(lol) Just kidding-- I never miss  a deadline;) It just took me a while to decide to go for Cosmo Cricket's design team call-- I just kept going back and forth, back and forth, back and... (you get the picture). I've been a Cosmo Cricket fan for a few years now-- ever since I filled Campbell's 1st year album with the Dutch Girl collection. My hesitation about going for the design team revolves around the fact that my strength lies in my card making, and since I've mostly been scrapping with Cosmo Cricket, I had to put together a few things for my audition.  So anyway here's what I have to share.

Lets start with my most recent Cosmo purchase... Girl Friday Crafting Kit--of course! What would this girly, girl household do without a collection like this? 

Inside reads: "Congratulations on your engagement!"

Mini note cards-- the perfect gift accompaniment 

Why not send a cute invite to a girlfriend to join you for a night on the town?

Here is a head's up to all of my girlfriends out there-- a few of these may be heading your way;)

I was thrilled to find some dp from CC's Jack's World collection in a kit from SIS Boutique (their kits are so smart). It is such a bright and happy collection- great for passing some love on to a friend.

Inside reads: "I'm so joyful you are in my life. Hugs, Windy"

Another mini...

Some finishing bits (aka using up the scraps on my desk): 

a few quickie stick puppets to keep my girls entertained for a few hours

Lastly, here's a little throwback that I dug out of storage from the Hey Sugar collection. I bought the kit it to scrap a Florida vacation album- thought the pink and teal would match my tropical girly pool and beach photos perfectly, but it also make adorable cards.

Inside reads: "A Toast to You. Congratulations on Your Big Day!"

Yet another mini (yes, I'm a card miniaturist)

A little love and lace

You can also find a few sketches with CC here: 2 Sketches 4 You and here: CPS.

Well, this is the end... as you can tell, my top product picks are dp, ribbon and my scissors/punches. I'm paper crafter who would love to be a card maker for your design team. While I'm relatively new to the paper crafting scene, I'm not afraid to submit to pubs, nor am I shy about posting to my blog and participating in online communities.

Thanks for your time and consideration. I not only LOVE your designs, but also the honesty and sense of humor at your blog. Best of luck with your search!


Psst-- for my awesome Card and Page followers, I will be back later with some page ideas for you using these collections. I've been so inspired by creating these cards, I can't wait to let it flow in my pages:)
