A few Cosmo Cricket goodies........

We have one store in town that carries a LIMITED supply of Cosmo Cricket products (supplies listed at end of post). Even though they carry very few products. I'm happy!! The kits go a LONG way and several projects can be completed with the kits. I completed ALL these projects with 1 kit and two cardstock sticker sheets. To top it off.....I have plenty of stuff left. Now, who can beat that?! lol

I thoroughly enjoyed creating each and everyone of these projects!! I hope you don't get bored....this is a LONG post! (:

I bought this birdhouse at Wal-Mart for less $2.62. I spray painted it and covered it with Cosmo Cricket Twist and Shout PP.

These little vellum envelopes were turned into good-y bags. I used more Twist and Shout PP.
The little bunny has a "cotton tail". Also, I used some of the cardstock stickers to dress them up.

The PP and die-cuts on this card are also from the Spring 08 line. The PP in this line is Twist and Shout. It was love at first sight when I first laid eyes on these little chick!!!!

This is my second favorite card I created with this kit!! I love the butterflies and the way the cardstock sticker and PP sentiment work together!! :D
Your a trooper if you've made it this far! lol I used more of those super cute cardstock stickers on this card! Cardstock stickers glam up a card in no time flat.....they take the work out or cardmaking and SB'ing. I made the flowers with some lace my mom bought for at a yardsale. Don't ya love a bargain! :)

Here's a quick and simple card using a die-cut from the Spring 08 collection......As you can see.....many projects are to be had from one kit!

This little number here has a clear base (yep, it's acetate baby). I punched out the little chicks with a circle punch and pop dotted them to the front of the card. The large panel in on the inside of the card.
For this project, I first cut the top off of a little brown bag. I then, punched holes around the top and weaved the ribbon through the holes. To dress it up. I added some PP, lace, a tag, pearls, a silk flower and lightly sponged the edges. I had some cellophane bags that will house some candy as part of my little nieces birthday present this coming weekend.
If you look closely (if you're still hanging with me lol) the notebook paper PP is handmade. I used some fine tip markers, graphed project protector paper from SU, a crop-o-dile and a ruler. It was easy.....I'm sure I'll be making more.
This card goes with the project above that I'm giving to my niece. I'll just add a birthday wish to the front of it (somewhere). lol

Hi Lori! It's been a while since I've visited your actual blog since I have you on my google reader. Anyway, I love your layout. I scrolled all the way down to the bottom to see that you used an Our Blogger Template. Was this hard to do and did you need to customize a lot? I recently tweaked all my spacing, margins, and wrappers and don't want to do all that again.

I love all your Cosmo Cricket projects. There were so many, I have no idea how you found the time to make them all.

PS. You comments are showing up with a black background so can't read them.
