August Magazine Challenge - Cosmo Cricket!

This month's magazine challenge asked us to use Cosmo Cricket products and the Cuttlebug to create something fun and exciting!
I used the Double Deck pack on my project.

I started with a fun shaped toolbox looking holder from the thrift store and a piece of 2x4 I cut.

I have been working on getting my new craft space set up and this toolbox will hold my extra adhesives. The block is just a fun decoration for my area! I used 2 of the papers from the Double Deck pack - the yellow and the red starburst - LOVED these papers!

I used a script folder for my emboss on both the bird and the white sheet on the block. I then inked in red and embossed so the ink wouldn't smear when I Mod Podged everything.

Organized Chaos is what I call how I craft!

This shelf is another thrift store find that I'm mounting on the wall above my station. As you can see, my walls are red, so the white, black, yellow, and red compliment it well!

This is my favorite, and if I do say so myself, my most ingenious part. I wanted a way to affix the flower on the wood block easy and glue and I and the flowers are not getting along well. So, I used a yellow thumb tack! I added some Stickles to it to make it shimmer and it works perfectly!

I am so thrilled with how they turned out - I love everything about it. Carts I used were Flower Shoppe, Nursery Rhymes, and Sophie - all new carts for my blog usage!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
