For the love of Cosmo!

Hello! Happy summer... I'm thrilled to be a guest designer today at Die Cuts R Us! The line I chose to work with for my projects was Joyride by Cosmo Cricket. I don't know many people who don't LOVE Cosmo Cricket! Their papers and chipboard are happy and fun and I can always use the collections in a project. The Joyride line is super great for vacations, road trips, days filled with fun and guy themed projects... like Father's Day... wink, wink! So, enough blabbering and on with the good stuff!

This is a layout I made... it's pretty silly, but a very funny, good memory for me. And hey, isn't that what scrappin' is all about? We were making the long 12 hour drive back from the beach and my mom took these pictures. She thought I was driving too fast and put on Anna's bicycle helmet. We laughed until we were crying!

Next up, a Father's Day card for my dear, old Dad. I told you this is a great collection for guy themed projects! :) I used some ancient foam stamps to ink "dad" and used the same mist as above.
TIP: rather than spraying your mist, unscrew the cap and tap the ink off the tube. That way, you get a more concentrated inked area.

Lastly, an easy "Hi" card that you could whip out in 10 minutes to send to an old friend. The inside message is "It's been too long..." A sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink.

See?! I told you the Joyride Collection was awesome! It's so versatile and fun! I hope these projects inspire you to make something crafty today!

I'm beach bound today! My whole family is making the trip to Hilton Head, SC for a week. We go this time every year and we absolutely love it! So, this is probably my last post for the week. Have a good one!
