phew...last post

Dear Cosmo Cricket,
Please pick me.
From, Hailey AKA the minibook mama

Here are some more "favorites" from my man-ly coworkers :)

Please look down at my older posts, some feature Cosmo Cricket in simpler designed layouts and mini's.

some of my best work...

WHAT....how does someone pick their best work....I had a hard time so I had some coworkers help. PS - I work with almost all men so this was a challenge :) Here are a couple more mini-books (they are slowly taking over bookcases across michigan).
Also, my office does not make for spectacular photo studio, so please bare with me...hehe.

Please look down at more layouts with Cosmo Cricket products.

seriously 30 people....

ok so I went into the store last night ( http://www.scrappychiclivonia.com ) to teach my class (grungeboard quilt) and looked at the sign up sheet for my upcoming class and WHAT 19 people signed up 1 with a question about a kit, 5 kits for ladies in Grand Rapids (2.5 hour drive from the store) and 4 more that cannot come to the class but want a kit. I was soooooooooooooooooooooo excited. Well I must thank Cosmo Cricket for designing such super cute paper (a little suck up since I am trying out for the design team) but I guess the recipe book must be pretty cool too.....here are a few picks. I will be ordering more stuff for the kits as the order coming in today will not fulfill the new wave of kits so if you are interested check out the kit in my etsy shop!

PS - It will come with a PDF with about 40+ recipes from our swap so you can use them too.

pick me, pick me.

well sorry for some of the picks, it was quite windy on the deck. I am known as the minibook mama. I have them everywhere. Cosmo Cricket crafting kits have the perfect amount of paper and treats inside to make them quick, simple, and stylish right down to the cut off strips. :) Take a peek below. I also have posted some quick and simple layouts with crisp style because I don't always have hours to spend on one layout. When I actually scrapbook I want to be able to get a lot done while not comprising an eye catching design. These are projects and layouts that were already complete (and made at a weekend retreat approximately at 2am where quantity not necessarily amazing was the goal) hence the simplicity.

enjoy, Hailey

PS - take a look at my Early Bird Recipe book post from June 16th. The sample is in the store so I cannot get anymore pics before July1st.....And the link to my flickr account for more crafty business. http://www.flickr.com/photos/paper-and-glue/

Upcoming Classes and Kits # 2

OHHH no posts forever then 2 in one day...watch out I am on a crafting roll. Anyway I am teaching this super cute recipe book at http://www.scrappychiclivonia.com/ on Sunday July 12th. We will be doing a recipe swap and pot luck too. It will be a lot of fun. Sign up fast as we are almost full!

The book has chipboard covers, 5 chipboard dividers (labels include Appetizer, Salad, Main Dishes, Drinks, and Dessert. I will also email the recipe template with sample recipes when you purchase the kit. The kit will include all the paper needed to create the book as well as coordinating stickers and ribbon to embellish the book. The book also has 20 page protectors for the recipes. Color instructions for each page can be emailed or sent with the kit.

Those of you interested in a kit. I am putting together instructions and ordering supplies. I will be doing a pre-order of kits only.

Please purchase from my etsy store if you are interested. The kits will ship out by July 10th at the latest. (this is when I will be kitting my class kits) http://www.haileymann.etsy.com

Hello June. Holey crap. The month of May flew by. I have 2 awesome classes coming up at Scrappy Chic ( http://www.scrappychiclivonia.com ). This Sunday I have fun with Alcohol Ink where we will make several mini elements to add to your scrapbook and altered art projects using some off the wall stuff.....hehe. There is a sample in the store. Then on June 15th, back by popular demand, I am teaching my 3rd class of the Altered Canvas, this class is a hit every time. Then Thursday June 18th the BGPOTM Class.

Hope to see you there! Hailey

PS - A little Anthro inspiration.....seriously I could totally see this in front of the window in my scrap room to do a little creative thinking on. Love, love, love it!
