To celebrate today's sneak of Jolly Days and the full reveal happening tomorrow, we'll be giving away these Odds and Ends fabrics.
But before we get to all that, let's take a quick peek at Jolly Days. We asked our facebook fans what type of Christmas line they would like to see from Cosmo Cricket and the overwhelming majority choose "vintage, whimsical, fun."
This line is super fun with loads of quirky characters, but I was really drawn to the gold tones. That's what's so great though... Jolly Days can be all grown up and fancy or young and fun. You'll see what I mean.
First up some altered glass ornaments. Like I said, I really love the golds. The glitter patterns were made with Glubers... yep they come in strips now for making ruffles. You actually saw them on yesterday's layout too!
But the line isn't just golds. And, with these fun embellishments, you'll definitely want to use the other colors too!
We can't create a whimsical line without a few quirky characters... we are Cosmo Cricket after all! Take a look at Eric's Santa, Elf and super cool blue reindeer!
I have to be honest, I have no idea where any of my Christmas photos are. Well that's not true, they are in a box. I just don't know which one. That made this project a bit more difficult to complete, but I wanted to give at least one layout example to you all!
I'll let you in on another secret. There are stamps with all the lines. I tried one on this card and ended up smudging it a bit. Stamping is not a technique I am skilled in!
Leave a comment today to be entered into our random drawing for the fabric. We'll announce the winner tomorrow morning when we reveal the full paper crafting release for CHA summer. I'll bet we have some prizes too!
