Release Day!


Happy Fall my crafty friends!  I know that for some of you this means crisp days and chilly nights, but here in Northern California, the heat has returned.  We were blessed to have a mostly mild September, but then, voila, 100 degree temps are on the forecast! Oh well, enough of my pity party, let's get on to the reason we're all here.

It release day at The Cat's PajamasThis month is all about Halloween and Christmas.  Available in the the shop today are 4 new dies and 3 new stamp sets.  As always we're celebrating with a Blog Hop. 

If you came over from Deborah's Blog, you're in the right place.  If not, you can start at the beginning of the Hop by going to Michele's BlogMake sure you check out all of the creations from the entire Cat Pack

For my card I chose to keep it simple to really show off the new Round Tree CutUps die set.  It's so beautiful and elegant and reminds me of a quiet winter day.  It comes with two dies and is very versatile.  I picture cutting it in black and using it for spooky Halloween trees.  The sentiment is from the adorable new Better Not Pout stamp set.  I added the Dove CutUps die and a small metal snowflake to finish off my card.




 I hope that you love our new release as much as I do!  Now hop on over to the Leader of the Pack, Alma's Blog, to see what creative goodness she has for you.

Here is the entire Blog Hop Line Up.

Hi crafty friends!  It's Sneak Peek week at The Cat's Pajamas.  Available on Tuesday, September 25th are four new CutUps die sets and three new stamp sets.  The holidays are coming, so we're revving up with some adorable new products you'll just love.

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!!  Sorry, I had to get that out!  It's my favorite season to create for, so for my Sneak Peek I chose to create for only Halloween.  Come back for the Blog Hop on Tuesday and I'll have some Christmas goodness to share with you.

New to The Cat's Pajamas store are these super cool Kraft Pop-Up Tubes.  They're large enough to fit a gift card, plus additional goodies and are so easy to put together and decorate.  I used the new Halloween Tag Duo CutUps dies to create the tag that adorns the Tube.




 I again used the Halloween Tag Duo CutUps dies to create the tag base.  The grumpy ghost, bats and sentiment are part of the new Faboolous stamp set.  Oh my, this set is so darn cute!  Just a little creepy with plenty of personality. 




 Check out the full release.

Sneaky Peek Week



Hello my crafty friends! It's Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas and this month it's all about birthdays.  We all have them, and let's face it, secretly, we all like to to be a little fussed over, even if it's only from our closest friends and family. 

Available tomorrow in The Cat's Pajamas shop are 2 new stamp sets and 4 new Cutups dies.  This entire release is super fun!  This cute little kitty is my favorite, and I know that I'll probably overuse him!  He's part of the new Let's Party stamp set.  I used the new to the shop Balloon Frame die in the center of the card and the new Wish Tag Duo Cutups die for the sentiment and the tiny star embellishments.




 This sweet card was made using the fabulous new Birthday Cake CutUps die and coordinating It's All About the Cake stamp set.  I love this set!  There are soooo many ways to mix and match the stamps and dies in these sets.




 For my final card I used the new Wish Tag Duo CutUps die set to create the tag and Wish sentiments.  
 




I hope you liked my creations today.  If so, leave a comment here and on Instagram (lynnsprinkled) to win a $10 gift voucher to the shop.  A winner will be picked each day and will be posted on the Cat's Pajamas Blog and Facebook page.

The Cat's Pajamas Release Day & Blog Hop


Hello my crafty friends!  It's Release Day at the Cat's Pajamas and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop. You'll see some beautiful projects by some very talented ladies, so make sure you hop through the entire lineup.  If you came here from Deborah's blog, you're in the right place.  If not you can start at the beginning of the Hop at Wendy's blog.


This card did not photograph well for some reason. I hate it when that happens!   It is much richer and brighter in person so just imagine it lighter and brighter!  This was a really fun project for me.  I used new Liners CutUp s die and the new Oh Buoy stamp set.  I also used the Square Stamp CutUps die.  The magenta marbeling was created using Yupo paper, alcohol inks and an Alcohol Lift Off ink pad. 


 Now hop on over to Jessie's blog to see what she has created for your inspirations.

The Cat;s Pajamas July Sneaky Peek Week



Hello my crafty friends!  It's that time again, Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas.  Available on Tuesday, July 31st are three new stamp sets and four new CutUps dies, including a free die with purchase. 

One of my favorite types of cards to make is a card in a box.  You can pack so many elements into this small project and bonus!, you can totally mail it as it folds flat.  Talk about impressive, your recipient is sure to be happy.

 I used the new Critters CutUps dies and the new Critter Camp stamp set. They are both simply adorable and are very versatile.  I also used the new Liners CutUps dies and the Stitched Clouds, the 3x3 Stars, and the Big, Little Alphabet Cutups.




Look at this sweet bunny coasting on his bicycle!  Carefree, ears blowing in the breeze, he's part of the new Oh Buoy Stamp Set.  He's riding atop the new Rolling Hills CutUps die.  The sentiment is framed with the Square Stamp CutUps die.


For my last  project, I made a set of tags with the new Liners Cutups dies. I really feel that these cute little dies make a strong statement on their own, which is why I chose to keep it simple with my tags.  The new One Liners stamp set are the perfect tiny stamps when you don't want your sentiment to steal focus.  A little gold glitter paper, gold ribbon and sime embossed dots are my finishing touches.
 

For a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to The Cat's Pajamas store, please leave a comment on my blog, as well as each designer during Sneaky Peek Week.  You can also leave a comment on my Instagram page @lynnsprinkled.  Winners will be announced each day on The Cat's Pajamas Blog  as well as Facebook Page.

Here is the full release available on Tuesday, July 31st.
