Gojumpinalake

Honestly, that's the name of this patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. I laugh every time I think about that name. Makes you wonder how they come up with the names. I wish they would do a behind the scenes where they explain them. More Cosmo rub-ons on here (I can't get enough) with some Making Memories Passport letters:



Well, I haven't cut my fingers (or my arm) off yet with the Tonic paper trimmer. And I'm klutzy like that, so no promises. When you run your hand over the blade, it's not really that sharp to touch but I'd hate to be on the receiving end of that thing with some speed on it. That's for the professional test dummies, do not try at home. I'm still learning how to line up the paper, it does cut straight if you omit user error. Unfortunately, user error appears to be a key part of my technique. I'm not in love yet, but there is potential.

Thinking about running up to Tuesday Morning today. They have Ott lamps on sale for $15, regularly $50. I sure could use that since my only light in this room after dark is a desk lamp. I went to Walmart Monday and got 2 Martha Stewart punches-a butterfly and a heart. I'm so excited about the heart, love that. Plus I finally found the cutting mat that goes with my Martha roller, and it works awesome. I'll post something tomorrow with it, love that thing. I was so disappointed after I spent $25 at Micheal's to get the cutter, get it home and it doesn't work without the mat. Went back to Micheal's and they didn't have the mat. Grrrr. I also walked around the card section in Walmart for a while, that always inspires me. So, feeling better.

J is still eating lots of rice, and is now using my corner rounder as his newest car. I don't know about you, but I always say Vrroom went I use that thing. :)
Happy Tuesday.

ETA: Jill at Memorable Seasons is getting all 3 of the new Cosmo Cricket packs in stock within a week, but she does have individual sheets to purchase now.

What a darling page. I love it. You will learn to love the Tonic...especially if you start trying to cut with your old cutter, then you will realize the wonderful-ness of the T.
Thanks for the update about the sets...I may just wait now, as I would rather have the sets than get the paper individually.

I'm sure the user error issue will resolve itself soon. Punches sound wonderful! I'll have to check those out here.

Really cute page there! I love hearing of your shopping trips! LOL! I haven't checked out Tuesday Morning in years, really. I liked it but hardly go up the way of the location. That's a great deal! Hope you get it!

Yes, I would think I would want to use that paper just for the name too!!! CUTE grouping of pics!

Love this page and how the photos capture him at different ages! The Tonic rocks, but you must really line the paper up and hold down the clear plastic thingies pretty firmly! Good luck!

Oh, no Chatterbox yet. I am dying over here! Can't wait to see what they have in store for us!

Love your layout! Beautiful photos and vibrant colors! I'm on the market for a new trimmer so I'll have to see how your learning curve goes :)

i would love to see a 'behind the scenes' of paper naming at CC. that would be a hoot, especially if it's anything like Jon the warehouse guy!
