Cosmo Cricket - 3 new lines

New this week... THREE new lines of Cosmo Cricket papers, stickers, alphas, paper pads and embelishments. Can we say.... YAY!?!?! Here are some close ups of each of the paper pads, to give you an idea of what the lines are all about.

Material Girl is a fun, whimsical line featuring all things sewing... scissors, patterns, tape measures... you name it!!

Joy Ride will be PERFECT for all of those Summer Road trip pictures!!

Garden Variety is for all of those with a green thumb or who love all things organic. This set comes complete with the cutest smiling tomatos!!

Cosmo Cricket never lets down. Come in and see all of the coordinating pieces to these three amazing lines!

Cosmo Cricket Alphas

Cosmo Cricket has just released several new alphas. Some coordinate with their new paper lines and many more that are versatile and could go with just about any project you could dream up. The first pic shows their "ready-set-chip" alphas that coordinate with the new paper lines. I especially love the woodgrain one on the top right!

These are teeny tiny alphas that come in six versatile colors:

Along the bottom of each sheet are word stickers!! Here's a close up:

Each color has it's own set of words... how cool is that??

Flowers and Lace

More Prima!! These new flowers are stunning with lots of detail and glitter:
See the packaging? It is designed so that after you use your flowers, it become an embelishment all of its own!! These flowers are also new at Scrappin' Time:
The colors and textures are fantastic and it coordinates beautifully with their new lace/ribbon:

Want to get more use out of your flowers? Love them too much to shut away in a scrapbook? Hot glue a pin back and use them on your lapel, headband, hair clip or hand bag! (just make sure not to get them wet)


Lots of new Prima in this week!! And, as usual, it is BEAUTIFUL!

Prima's Umbrella Line

We all know that Prima makes GORGEOUS and girly flowers, papers and embellishments. But have you seen their new Umbrella line?? It's bright, fun and funky!!
Crocodiles wearing rain boots? TOO CUTE! And look at those pebbles that coordinate! Almost makes me want to wish for a rainy day and a yellow rain slicker...

St Patrick's Day

Scrappin' Time has stickers, paper, ribbons and more to help with your St Patrick's Day projects. Need some inspiration? Pick out a few sheets of paper (mix prints, stripes and solids that color coordinate) and cut out shamrock shaped die cuts (or cut by hand using a pattern). Cut a long piece of coordinating ribbon and either pin, staple or sew the shamrocks across to create a fun and festive garland for your home. Accent with stickles, stickers or buttons.

Here's a simplified example to give you an idea of where to start:

Start with the shamrocks and dress it up with the embellies and you'll have a totally festive, unique decoration for your home!

Just Rite Stamps

Have you seen the wall of Just Rite stamps at Scrappin' Time? Take a look:
There are so many fantastic choices!! And what makes them really fantastic is that they are interchangeable!! What does that mean? Look at this close up...
Each set comes with different borders and/or centers. The borders have everything: vines, scrolls, flowers, stars and more. The centers... there's too many to list!! And all of the stamps (of the same size) can coordinate with each other so the more sets you buy, the more you can experiment and make your projects your own! Scrappin' Time has several sets that you can come in and try out, just stop by and Karen would be happy to give you a quick demonstration!

Hippity Hoppity

Another new product line at Scrappin' Time! The "Hippity Hoppity" line from We R Memory Keepers (isn't that name fun to say?!)

Those bright, spring colors will grab your attention from across the room! Bright yellows, bold pinks and blues and rich oranges make this line practically edible:
See that piece of pink cardstock? See those white lines? That 'aint no rub on, sister! Those are actually SEWN borders!! There are a few colors available (in the "Vintage Blue" line as well). Can we say GENIUS??This bunny die cut is so cute I may just have to tuck him in my pocket and carry him around with me! I can definately see these raised embossed die cuts being my "go to" embelishment this Spring!And the embellishments live up to the cute-ness! The stickers in the middle (with the white background) are also raised/embossed! Exciting!These glittered "lace" stickers make quick work of any layout or cardLast (but certainly not least!) STAMPS! Six different sets featuring flowers, bunnies, baby chicks and the cutest bumble bee ever!

Be on the lookout for some projects from this (and the "Vintage Blue" line in the post below) in the next week or so.

Have you bought any of this line at Scrappin' Time yet? Have some new projects all whipped up and ready to share? Click a pic and send them to and we may feature them on our blog! Make sure to include a link to your personal blog (if you have one) so that we can link you up. I know our readers would love to visit!

Vintage Blue

New this week: the "Vintage Blue" line by We R Memory Keepers! This line is rich with blues, purples and greens. Take a peak at the collection as a whole:A closer look at some of the papers:And the rest of the papers. Lovin' those plaids!These die cuts make a simple (and extremely affordable) embelishment for cards or layouts:These "flocked lace" stickers add a lot of bang for your buck:And don't forget about the stamps and tag pad!This line is so versatile, it would make super girly projects but also transition perfectly to "boy" layouts as well!! Personally? I invision a mini album incorporating all of the papers, embelishments, stickers and stamps!

What's better than card stock?

Polka Dot cardstock!! This line is by Bo Bunny:

Most are "tone on tone" (ie a dark paper with light dots of the same color family) but some are delisciously different. They add a subtle touch of depth and interest to projects. Here is a layout by Erin who used the black and blue Bo Bunny papers:
Don't you think it adds a lot more interest than solid cardstock? And look at all of the colors it comes in!!

New page and card kits!!

This week we received SO many fantastic page and card kits! Take a peek:

These are super great kits for beginning or "time crunched" scrappers because the pages are COMPLETELY assembled, just add your photos and write your journaling. Easy Peasy

And here is the new card kit:

See that row across the top? It makes EIGHT cards!! And they are so simple (but stunning) that you complete all eight in an afternoon!! These would be perfect for upcoming Spring Birthdays, graduations or holidays (Easter, etc). And... the colors are so rich and vibrant in person... stop by and check them out!

Cardstock Pads

Are you as in love with all of the gorgeous colors of cardstock available as we are?? Scrappin' Time is carrying more and more cardstock options including pads of assorted cardstock!

Stop in and check out all of the options, located on the "book/magazine rack" by the front door. An added bonus... if you divide out the price per piece of paper it is a real bargain!

Embossed Cardstock

Have you seen the EMBOSSED card stock yet?? See if you can see the embossed patterns on these three papers:

I know that it's hard to see in a photograph, sorry! There are lots more colors and designs but these ones just sing out "Spring"! The green and white have a leaf embossed on them and the pink has embossed flowers. How gorgeous would your Spring project look with these??!!


Are you working on an album all about your family? Check out this line of stickers that are dedicated to all of the special people in your family. The best part... the papers are decked out with flocking and foil accents!!

and a close up:

Class in a Bag - you're gonna love this one!

There are a few (and we mean, a few... get 'em while they're hot) of the new "class in a bag" sets still available. Remember that you get enough papers and embelishments to make a double 12"x12" layout with plenty of pieces left over to make several cards or to decorate an altered project. Here's a sneak peak:

hugs and kisses

Just in time for Valentine's Day! These new "XOXO" punches from Martha will make super cute Valentines.... and with just a week until the big day of love.... they arrived with perfect timing!!

Here is a super cute card that I found from 2 peas user, RebeccaLeighann:

Doesn't that xoxo border just add a punch of personality (lol, I know, I know... punny, right??)?

Brad Bundle

Have you seen this brad making set at Scrappin' Time? For less than $30 you get three circle punches in graduating sizes, tons of brads that are ready to be decorated with your favorite papers, letters or photographs and the clear covers to give your brad a custom look... all in just a few seconds!! Here's what the set looks like:

There are thirty seven pieces in this fantastic bundle!! Here's an idea of a brad that you could create for your next project:

I love that you can take any scrap of paper and match your brad to your project!! These are also super cute with a photograph of your kiddo, pet or favorite vacation spot. Add a stamped image or text to really snazz up and customize your work.

And what happens when you have used up all of the brads included in the kit? You still have three high quality punches to play with!! Use them to create layered flowers (like THESE), cover standard brads (like THESE) or custom backgrounds (like THIS). The possabilities are endless!


American Crafts has a GORGEOUS line of stickers called Remarks. Here's a peek of some of the ones carried at Scrappin' Time:

Look at all of those choices! And each one is double-sided!! Here's a look at a few random packages:

These stickers are a little bit thicker (and sturdier) than normal. But else could we expect from the creator of thickers?? The colors are bright and the designs are versatile. Here's a peek at the back of the packages:

Project Ideas: The birthday banner (at the far left) makes me crave a cupcake and party hat just by looking at it! The vintage cars (second from the left) would make a great Father's Day card and the critters on the top one are simply charming, no?
