Before we get to this week's challenge, let's take a look at what you all did last week and congratulate our lucky random winner: Janet Lebeau. To try and become a lucky, random winner yourself, please read on!
Nikki Blair pulled out some Garden Variety from our winter release in 2010. It's still fun, bright and perfect for spring.
Jan Garber went all the way back to our first-ever Cosmo Cricket release. This is Storytime from 2006. I can't tell you how in love I was with that sky paper when it came out. It's great to see it again!
Mandi used our second most popular line ever, Early Bird from 2009. (Our most popular line ever to date is Wanted.) Don't you love the randomness of this!
Lisa Sumpter made a card with Twenty-Three from 2012. Wait just a second, how can something from 2012 be in our "Somethine Old" challenge? Well, those chipboard pieces on the front are from so long ago that she can't even remember when she got them. Way to use them up Lisa!
I don't think KimberlyRae Ford even knows about our challenge, but she posted this project to our facebook fan page and it's so cute that I wanted to share it with you. She used Material Girl from 2010.
Janet Lebeau used a spinner card from 2009 (I think). I wish I still had some of these, they were so fun, especiall for making album covers with.
Patricia Moussatche posted this double page layout to our fanpage lamenting the fact that she was a week behind on our element challenge. Well, what she didn't know is that she was right on time with our Something Old challenge using Snorkel from 2009.
Lowri McNabb used Circa 1934 from 2010. It's a little over a year old, but her take on it is so fabulous!
Irit Shalom pulled out our third most popular line ever Mr. Campy from 2008. I think part of this is a digital layout (it's the paint spots that are giving me that feel). If true, this would be our first digi-scrap challenge entry ever.
Kayla Dupont used Salt Air from 2011. Doesn't she look fabulous in that photo? I guess a cruise is what I really need!
My sister-in-law Tami Comstock used a layout featuring Haunted from 2008. Not only is the product from a few years back, the layout kind of is too. Tami started it when Haunted first came out and got inspired to finish it up for this challenge by adding last year's Jack-O-Lantern photos.... although I noticed she still has some journaling to do.
If you weren't inspired to use up some of your older projects with this challenge, may I suggest another idea. Get together with some of your friends to exchange your oldies. It's amazing how someone else can have a vision for something you just don't see yourself using... besides it's super fun to have a scrap-swap party!
For this week's challenge, let's use some banners. They've been a trend for quite a while now. Make them for titles on layouts, embellishements on cards, out of paper or fabric for your home, etc. Show us your ideas. Inspire us with your talents.
Simply create a project featuring a banner or bunting, take a pic, put said pic on the internet and post a link to it in the comments on this blog post. You can also post it to our fanpage or email it to me directly julie at cosmocricket dot com. Whatever option you choose please, oh pretty please, put Banners and Buntings challenge in the subject line or description so I can find it. On that note, if I ever forget a project please let me know ASAP so that I can correct myself!
Thanks, you guys are the best!!!
We will play this week for a Baby Jane mini deck and stacked stickers. (As always it will be a random winner.) Good luck everyone!
