This year at CHA, Craft Critique decided to think a little differently when reviewing our favorite scrapbook companies. We figured since our readers are from multiple genres of craft it would make sense to feature companies that have a larger cross over potential.
Jewelry, altered objects, cards, and many a variety of crafts can be created with the help of beautiful and stylish paper. And it takes a beautiful and stylish woman to sell some hot paper!
Introducing Julie Comstock, owner and trend maker at Craft Critique favorite Cosmo Cricket.
Not only did we, with the lovely ladies owners of Lizzie Anne Designs (pictured above), Tricia and Meridith, learn all about CC new paper, we learned how to take photos of ourselves that made us look skinnier!
One foot forward, weight on the back leg, arm on the hip, twist to the side; and if you manage to do this and stay upright you will look thinner. Btw… Dana and I are opting OUT of posting our photos here. We know our limitations, and standing next to Julie, Tricia and Meridith isn’t doing anyone any favors.
Needless to say we had a ton of fun at the CC booth. This next shot might explain part of Lindsay’s last blog post on the always entertaining and inspiring Cosmo Cricket Blog.
Unfortunately many of my in booth photographs aren’t doing these lines justice… So here are some favorite papers from the CC website.

And our personal fave, Earth Love:
How about these new Spinners! Cute right?
