Anyway, enough of that. Let's get to some Cosmo shares! This below is everything that I made for the Cosmo CHA booth (although the little gift tag holder I spaced it and forgot to send!) :P
When I first opened The Boyfriend line I took a look at the stickers. I saw this one below (Got Tunes?) and totally thought of an iTunes Gift Card we got a while back! I thought this would be perfect for holding one of those gift cards! Only problem is I didn't make the slits right, so now I can't get a card in. :P Never made one of these before so hopefully next time will be easier.
Paper-Cosmo Cricket, Kraft cardstock
Brads-stash (I am not sure where these came from?)
Ink-Color Box Cat's Eye Chalk ink
Ribbon(?)-This is actually the old drawstring to a pair of my sweat pants. (Don't worry, I remove the string before I even wear them the first time!)
This LO was also made with The Boyfriend line, but it is not boy themed at all! We wanted to show the versatility of the lines, so I did a LO about my sister and I when we were little. No journaling, just us. I don't know or remember anything from this time, we lived in Flagstaff, AZ for a year and I don't remember a bit of it, so I really wouldn't know what to say in journaling anyway. I just thought we looked cute and happy. Good times. :D (BTW doesn't that carseat look ancient??!!!!)
Supplies: Everything on here is Cosmo Cricket (Except for the dark teal cardstock, also I used an EK Success border punch)
This next LO I made using the Jolly by Golly line, and it totally looked different in my mind. I spent hours upon hours on this LO, only for it to not turn out at all like I wanted it to! Urgh! Don't you just hate that?! Well, I couldn't just abandon it, or even start a different one, I was so crunched for time and so spent on trying to make this vision come to life in this LO that I just needed to get this one done. I am ashamed to say that I let that happen, but sometimes you just gotta give and let it go, knowing full well that you will come back again another day and give it another try. I read a quote a long while ago and I can't remember who said it, but it goes-If you throw enough things at the wall, something is bound to stick. So You can full well expect to see me give this another try real soon!
Ink-Color Box Cat's Eye, Stazon
And it is no surprise that Cosmo had some of their older, yet still popular, lines featured at this last CHA. For things that their new lines did not cover (end of summer, halloween, traditional Christmas colors and so on), their older lines make up for that in abundance!!!
Supplies: Everything above is from the Girl Friday line by Cosmo Cricket (except the blue velvet scallop trim, that is from Get Happy by Cosmo Cricket).
This last LO was actually the first one that I made (I was waiting for the new realeases embies to arrive). I used the Haunted line for this LO. Cut my own shape and stitched the circle with my machine. The pictures of Creedence here are when she is about 2 months old. Man I miss her being that small! Where did the time go?!!! *tear!*
Supplies: Everything above is from the Haunted line by Cosmo Cricket (except for the pumpkin brad (Making Memories), the orange flower (Michael's) and the pearl pin (Maya Road).
Ok well I have all lined up a Prima post for next time, so stay tuned!! Also I just received the September Build-A-Page sketch and OMGOSH is it stunning!!! Can't wait to get started on that! Hope you are all well! Take care!
