New Arrivals- Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon and Reminisce

Reminisce has introduced two ADORABLE lines- Monsters and Barnyard Buddies. Both have three sticker sheets that coordinate, words/phrases, journaling spots, and a full 12x12 self-adhesive sheet. There are 6 double sided sheets in each line! The Barnyard Buddies line is perfect for those trips to the Petting Zoo or for 4-H projects.

October Afternoon also has a barnyard themed line- Farm Fresh. (it's the one on the right) Their school line has delightful vintage elements that make it perfect for scrapbooking grandma's 6th grade picture as well as your own little one's yearbook photo.

We were just complaining about the lack of good fall papers (not that we don't LOVE BasicGrey's Indian Summer) when Cosmo Cricket's 'Nutmeg' preview showed up in our inbox. The colors are rich and fresh- nothing less than you would expect from Cosmo. The patterns are also adorable! We are all big fans of the cute critters. :) There are Paper Crafting Packs, Ready-Set-Chip, stickers, Mini-decks and all 6 papers with the borders and elements here. The patterns are great for mini books and cards too because they're smaller.

Options by Pine Cone Press

September was the first month we participated in a new program by Pine Cone Press called Options. They send us two kits a month - one is a project using their papers and blanks, the second is using another company's paper (September was My Mind's Eye).

Sometimes they're mini books, layouts, or cards, but they always give you Options of other things you can make with just the materials in the kit!

October's kits arrived yesterday! The first is lovely card box with matching cards that would make a wonderful gift and it uses their new Donna Salazar winter papers that are in soft and fuzzy blues and grays. The second is an adorable layout using Cosmo Cricket's new Jolly by Golly line. There are also ideas for some great cards!
