When Cosmo Cricket jumped on the scene I think I missed the memo. La, la, la I went on about my life without knowledge of the Cosmo. And then one day I picked up some paper, started scrapping with it and someone asked me what it was. I nearly fell out of my chair because I didn’t know off the top of my head – because there may be some people with minds that can count the number of toothpicks that fall to the ground, but I can merely spot patterned paper brands at fifty paces – and I had to look. ‘Well, it says Cosmo Cricket!’ and no one at the table had ever heard of that company at all. So we all went back to the shop where I found it, had a look around and pretty much bought everything else that Cosmo Cricket place had put out for sale!
Years on I am loving Cosmo more and more. Woodgrain in bright colours! Woodgrain on chipboard letters! Paper airplanes on patterned paper! Amazing colour schemes like the Girl Friday collection! Seriously, it makes me use lots of exclamation points! You can find daily inspiration on the Cosmo Cricket blog too.
Also, Cosmo is even better when enjoyed with party tunes!
