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.

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

Hi Friends!  It's Sneaky Peek week, and this month we have four new stamp sets and four CutUps dies available Tuesday, May 29th  at The Cat's Pajamas Store. 

This month I chose to mix it up a bit and created all tags using this fabulous new release.  Truthfully, I'm a cat person (okay, I confess, I've been labeled as "The crazy cat lady" by my well intended friends).  However, I also love dogs, pretty much all dogs, I'm just not fortunate enough to own one.  I use kitty products in a lot of my papercrafting projects, but I don't have much in my stash in the way of doggies.  I was so happy to see all of the canine goodness.  In fact, it was difficult to choose which ones to use first.  I hope you enjoy this release as much as I have.
 


For my first tag, I used the new Whee stamp set for the cute little napping dog, while I used the sentiment from the new Pawprints stamp set.  I finished off my tag with the new Eyelet Die, the Heart Rosette die, and the Easy Stitched Bow die.  

 

This tag is so sweet and reminds me of those long summer days when I attempted to fly a kite.  I could never get the darn thing to stay in the air for longer than a few minutes.  I would run around like a fool trying to beat my three minute record!  Ah, Good times!  These poochies from the new Live More stamp set sure make it look easy! New to The Cat's Pajamas Store is the Big Grass die.  I also used the Spring Tag Duo die for the base of my tag, as well as the Stitched Clouds die for the sentiment.



 For my last tag, I used the Lick to Bowl stamp set and the Smile CutUps die.

The Cat's Pajamas April Release & Blog Hop


It's release day at The Cat's Pajamas and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop!  Available today are four super cute stamp sets and three Cut Ups die sets.  If you came here from  Deborah's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, you can start at the beginning at Julie's blog.


I'm always looking for good masculine products.  The new Welcome to the Funny Farm stamp set will be my go to set for Father's Day this  year.  It's quite a versatile set, and could be used for any general masculine themed project.  I chose to use only one of  the five penguins in the set, masking my paper to just stamp this little fella.  







Now hop on over to Wendy's blog and she what cuteness she has created!

Hello Friends.  It's that time again, Sneaky Peek Week for The Cat's Pajamas.  Available tomorrow are three dies and four stamp sets. 



Do you love wine or martinis? Both? Maybe you know someone who does.  Send them a little love with the new Tini Time stamp set, the Wine & Martinis Cutups, and the Cheers Cutups.




I have a confession to make.  I was totally out of my comfort zone on this one, but I'm so glad that I used the Asian Spring stamp set and the Mountains Cut Ups die. It made me think outside of my little box.  I'm happy with how my card turned out, and I know a few friends that will love it!




Last is my favorite bunny, back to celebrate graduation.  He does it in style in the new Change the World stamp set. He's so cute and the sentiments are so clever.  I chose to create my shaker card in my local high school colors to make it unique.

It's release day at The Cat's Pajamas!   We're having a Blog Hop to show off  three new stamp sets and three die sets.  If you arrived here from Deborah's blog you are right on track. If not, you can start at the beginning at Michele's blog

For this card I used the Oval Scroll Duo CutUps die.  I cut it twice and modified it to create the small oval scroll in the center.  I see many uses for this die, and am sure that I'll use it often.  I also used the Butterfly Trio CutUps die as well and the Spring Tag Duo.  I finished off with a sentiment from the Special Delivery Stamp Set.
