Cosmo Cricket CHAW 12 sneak peek_ tea for two

Maybe you want something a bit more graphic. Let's turn to the artistic stylings of Eric who designed this ultra-cool line, Twenty Three. You'll notice his modern 60's design influence with a bit of vintage flair. (FYI: This layout was made with "proofs", not actual product. The color is off a bit and the actual papers will look more like the images below the layout.)

If you are expecting a little one and feel like getting your domestic goddess on, then Baby Jane is perfect for you. Even though there is a baby on the layout, this line's paper designs are versatile enough for almost any photos.

Or, maybe you're a romantic. And what with Mother's day and Easter coming up Evangeline's spring motifs may just sweep you off your feet.

Here's some things I'd like to bring to your attention that are new and different for us.

Element Decks Think of our Element sheets done as, well, a deck. Each line has one. Each one contains 24 sheets that are ALL unique! Each line's shape is a little different. They are super fun for cards, layouts and journals!


Washi Tape I like this better than any other adhesive! There are two different patterns in each package. One set works with Evangeline and Twenty-Three which share two colors in common. The other set works with Baby Jane and Tea for Two.

Stacked Stickers These make doing layouts so easy, I almost felt like I was cheating! Fun embellishments, pre-cut, stacked with foam adhesive, embellished with bling... what's left for me to do??? Just peel and stick!

You already know about our mini decks, but now they are printed on an even heavier weight paper. 

Our cardstock are just the same, FSC certified, double-sided and beautiful. The following pattern is one of my personal favorites!

Our cardstock stickers are even heavier and have more precise cutting. 

The chipboards are back in 6" and peel and stick just as good as ever.
