more fun with Cosmo Cricket Togetherness

One of the best parts about being on the team at SRM Stickers (besides getting all of those fun stickers!) is being able to work with fun, FREE product from some of SRM's friends like Cosmo Cricket.

I was so excited to find out that we were going to receive some of Cosmo Cricket's new CHA release and was even more anxious as I found out that we'd get two collections. WE all received the Togetherness collection, one of my favorites from this CHA release, and Pixielicious as well.

Thank you SRM and Cosmo Cricket!

Today we are all featuring the Togetherness collection so make sure and check things out on the SRM blog to see everyone's work and then check the individual blogs for more detailed pictures. You will find the links for these on the right side of my blog. On Friday we'll be showing off what we did with the other collection we received.

First off, here's the layout I created using the Togetherness Papercrafting Kit.

I used SRM Stickers from the new Everyday Girl collection- so fun!

One of my favorite techniques in scrapbooking is hand cutting elements from patterned paper to use as embellishments. I made everything you see on this page from the Togetherness Papercrafting kit though you might wonder if I had more than that. With a little bit of time and some careful cutting you can have some great embellishments to enhance your page even if you didn't buy any of the other embellishments from the collection. You can see a few examples of this in the following photos.

I added some dimension to the red polka dot bird with some foam adhesive.

I cut out and added some doodling around the edges of the clouds and then popped one up with foam adhesive again. For the butterflies I simply put adhesive right in the center so that I could bend up the wings a bit and give a sense of motion. It also adds more dimension to the page than if I'd just glued it down flat.

Aren't those little pinwheels cute? I cut them from one of the journaling cards and added a brad to the center.

If you take a look at the sentiment that runs across the group of pictures you will see that all of the wording is in black. Originally one of the "watch me" parts was in green, but in order to make it stand out more over the top of my picture I simply cut the same phrase from another sticker sheet and layered it on top and voila!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Check back tomorrow for more with Cosmo Cricket and a great new card sketch from Jen. 

p.s. Make sure to stop by the SRM blog for a chance to win some Cosmo and SRM Stickers!
