Cosmo Cricket: Spotlight on Dee Dee

Here are a few layouts I recently designed for The Crafty Scrapper. :) 

For this 12x12 layout I used Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air collection. 

Bathing Suit Beauty: I built her a headdress from flowers, coral, and sea life. :) 

I embossed and misted Maya Road chipboard to finish out the design. Then I went over each piece and accented with a variety of Stickles. I also added Glossy Accents to the bubbles so they'd have a nice dimensional look. 

For this funky 8.5x11 layout I used Cosmo Cricket's Upcycle Collection. 

I rolled ribbon to make this handmade pink striped flower, and threaded the chipboard buttons with the new colored twines that The Crafty Scrapper now carries. 

Then I outlined everything with a black Zig marker, and added rub-ons. 

Chub - Chub is another 8.5x11 layout using Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air collection. 

I punched butterflies and cut flowers from one of the patterned papers, and added Stickles and self-adhesive pearls to the centers. 

I added Maya Road rub-on letters and Jenni Bowlin alphabet stickers for the title. 

I started the layout by spraying Maya Mist over a Maya Road sheer screen to create the white and orange paper. 

So many fun details. Be sure to check out these layouts when you're next at The Crafty Scrapper!
