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.

 Here is the entire Blog Hop lineup:

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.

The Cat's Pajamas Release Day & Blog Hop





It's release day at The Cat's Pajamas and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop.  Available today in The Cat's Pajamas shop are 3
stamp sets and 4 dies.

I am first up in the Hop this month.   I used the new Sweets Cutups
die set to create the ice cream cone.  It's a very sweet set, no pun intended.  The new Big, Little Alphabet is a new found favorite of mine.  It's so clean looking, and the large size of the letters allow them to be the focal point of your project.




Now hop on over to Wendy's blog to see what creative inspiration she has for you.

The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek




Hello friends!  Summer is officially upon us, at least here in California, and with the temperature over 100 degrees I'd rather be inside creating pretty things than out in the hot sun.

Available on Tuesday, June 26th are 3 stamp sets and 4 die sets, including a free with purchase stamp set.  Make sure you check out what the other ladies in The Cat Pack have come up with for your creative inspiration.

For my first card I used a die set new to the Shop, Going Round and Round.  In this set, you get the two scalloped circles, plus two interactive dies to create movement on your project.  You can see how to use the interactive dies here.  The cute little penguin and sentiment are from the new Penguin Summer stamp set.  This set screams summer and is such a fun set. The Stitched Clouds and County Fair stamp sets are already available in the Shop.  I embellished with a few sequins to give it some sparkle.


Bright, fruity drinks are a definite summer icon and for my next project, I went with a bright summery color combination. For my fruity drinks I die cut the glasses with the new Margarita CutUps, and stamped the color with the matching Liquid Therapy stamp set.
The sentiment is from the new (free with purchase)  Need Glasses stamp set.  I used the Pinking Border CutUps to border the pink layer, and embellished with some bakers twine and buttons.




For my last project I made a very simple card by die cutting burlap with the new to the Shop Big, Little Alphabet CutUps. The sweet little sentiment is from the already available Words of Love stamp set.









Are you In It To Win It?  For a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Shop, comment on each of the designer's blogs on a daily  basis including mine today.  Winners will be announced on The Cat's Pajamas Blog and Facebook page each day.

The Cat's Pajamas Release Day!


 Hey friends!  It's release day at The Cat's Pajamas, and boy, you are in for a real treat.  I absolutely LOVE this entire release.  Available today are four new stamp sets and four CutUps dies. We're celebrating with a Blog Hop.  If you came here from the very talented Deborah's blog, then you're on the right track. 

I decided to wrap up this release with another tag. Tags are so much fun to make, and they make great little gifts.  Just make up a few coordinating tags and gift to family, friends, teachers, etc.  

For this adorable tag, I used the new Paw Prints stamp set for this goofy pooch and the sentiment. She's so playful, and just look at her with her teddy bear and blanket!   Do you see how cute the top of the tag is?  That's the Topper CutUps die, which has a few great choices for using on your tags and photo mats.  Lastly, I made a pinwheel from the Pinwheels CutUps.  This is the perfect size pinwheel for your projects. 



 I hope you liked  my projects this month.  Be sure to check out all of the projects from The Cat Pack.  They're sure to inspire you.  Now, hop on over to Christine's blog to see what she has to
