Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am ready to get in the Christmas spirit! We put up our Christmas tree and decorations. I am getting so excited! I absolutely love this time of year. I am also ready to start mailing out my Christmas cards. I always leave it for the last minute but not this year. I am having so much fun with my new The Cat's Pajamas stamps that I have almost all my cards done. For this card I used the super adorable set called You Suit Me. Isn't she adorable?! I colored her in with Copics and added some fun 3d snowflake stickers. I also pulled out my new Big Scallop Border CutUp die. Well, that's all for me today but make sure to check back for more holiday cards. I have tons to share with you!

It's getting so close I can taste it!! I'm so excited for you guys because I know you are going to fall in love with all The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps that will be released on November 23. Before I get into the stamping I wanted to let you know about an awesome special going on at TCP. Yup, you read right free shipping for almost a whole week! So, now that you know about that amazing deal let's get to the card. Today, we are featuring the set called Your Gift. I think it's so whimsical and cute. I paper pieced the tree and added some glittery present stickers and Zva Creative rhinestones to complete the card. I tried to go for a whimsical vintage feel. Well, that's all for me today but make sure you head on over to Sony, Susan, and Joanne's blogs. They have some more sneak peeks to share.

It's day six of our TCP sneak peeks and we are getting closer and closer to the release day! How exciting! Today, we are featuring another adorable set called "Jingle Bells". The set has the cutest little girl who is all bundled up in her scarf. I had so much fun coloring her. I also used another new CutUp die that will be released on Tuesday, November 23. I love the swirly border. I know this will be on lots of my cards from now on. The layout was last weeks TCP sketch challenge. I loved the sketch when I saw it but didn't have a chance to play last week so I saved it and made a card with it today! Well, that's all for me today but make sure to check out Tracy and Amy's blog for more "Jingle Bells" eye candy. Also , don't forget to join us at the SCS release party. Check out the forum of Alma's blog for all the details. Have a great weekend.

So, I'm sure everyone is enjoying all the TCP sneak peeks going on this week. If you don't already know The Cat's Pajamas is releasing some awesome new sets and CutUps on Tuesday, November 23. You guys are going to love them. Today, I am featuring the stamp set called 'Merry Wishes". Isn't she adorable?! I paper pieced her dress. The snowflake is a one of the new CutUps. I love it! I decided to hang some little glove punches from the flake. I think it brought the whole card together. I decided to use this patterned paper from My Minds Eye for this week's TCP Tuesday inspiration challenge. I took the lined circle patterned as my inspiration. This week's hostess is the amazing Toni Armstrong! The layout is from Jen's SFYTT. It was so much fun. Well, that's all for me today but make sure you hop on over to Susan and Joanne's blogs. They are also showing some sneak peeks today. Also, make sure to check out Alma's blog and the SCS forum for all the release party details.

Hi all! Today I have a fun little project/candy holder to share with you. I was pretty excited when I got my hands on the recently released The Cat's Pajamas pendant dies. My head started spinning and I saw so many possibilities. So, I can up with a little witch hat candy holder. I used the large and large scalloped pendant dies for this treat holder. All I did was punch out 3 pendant die cuts. Then, I scored about half an inch on the lower (unscalloped) part of the die cuts and the scalloped edges. After that, I glued the scalloped sides together leaving the top half unglued so it can open and the bottom scored part to circle die cuts. Then, I added some embellishments to complete the whole project. I tried to get better pictures but for some reason it was hard to photograph the hat. So, I guess these will have to do. The stamp is also newly released from The Cat's Pajamas. She is so cute with her little witch hat and cat. I colored her in and then cut her out and placed her on the hat with 3D glue dots. Well, that's all for me today but I have more cards to share with you soon.

Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting in such a long time. Life as always has been busy busy busy!! First, I want to say that buying a car is one of the worst experiances ever! The whole process is exhausting and draining. I'm just glad it's over with and we finally have a new car. Sorry for the vent but I just had to let it out. LOL Well, today I have a fun The Cat's Pajamas car to share with you. I used the set called Little Bird. Isn't she adorable. I had so much fun paper piecing her little coat. To complete the car I added a big PTI ribbon bow. I really like how it brings it all together. Well, that's all for me today but I promise to come back sooner with some more cards to share. Have a great weekend.

Happy Friday everyone! I am so ready for the weekend. This week has been so crazy. Let's just say that yesterday afternoon our car's engine caught on fire! Yup, there goes our car. I must say though that nobody got hurt so we are grateful for that. Luckily, Josh is finally adjusting to kindergarten. I honestly didn't realize how stressful kindergarten could be. I thought they were still playing at that age?! I was so wrong! So, now that I've bored you with my hectic week let's get to some stamping. Today I have a card featuring one of the new sets from the new release over at The Cat's Pajamas. The set is called Just Chillin' and I happen to think it's ADORABLE! It was so fun to paper piece and glitter up. I also used the new TCP CutUps. This is the the inside pinking CutUp. For the glitter I used TCP chunky German glass in Glitzy. I warned you that I would be using it a lot! To complete the card I added some ribbon and some snowflake die cuts. Well, that's all for me today but I have tons of cards to share with you. Hopefully, you stop by to check them out. Have a great weekend!

Welcome everyone, if you're coming from Beate's blog you're at the right place! So, are you ready for some shopping?! I hope so because all the new sets and dies are now available online at The Cat's Pajamas. I promise you are going to love all the new goodies! So, today we are having a TCP Tuesday blog hop! I love these. Our hostess is the uber talented Amy. She is challenging us to use plaid on our cards. I am a huge fan of plaid so I knew which paper I wanted to use for this challenge. The plaid comes from last year's Basic Grey Christmas collection. I combined it with the new set called Deep Breath. Isn't this bunny adorable?! I seriously can't get enough of them. I decided to also pull out my TCP Glitzy glitter again for the bunny hat. This card also features one of the new dies. The die used in this card is the Large Pinking Border. The dies are to die for!! I love how they complete a card. To finish everything off I added some bling. Well, that's all for me today but your next stop is Carole! I bet she has something amazing in store for you!

Wow! I can't believe that Taylored Expressions is celebrating their 2nd birthday today! It seems like yesterday that I got an email from Taylor asking me to be on her Baker's Dozen design team. I was so honored! Unfortunately, I had to eventually step down in order to focus more on my family but I still hold Taylored Expressions very close to my heart! I am so thrilled to see how much success has come to this amazing company in such a short time. So, you can imagine how happy I was when Taylor asked me to be part of Taylored Expressions 2nd Birthday Bash Blog Hop. So, if you can over from the super amazing Amy Sheffer's blog then your at the right place! When I got my stamps in the mail I couldn't wait to get inky with it. This A La Carte set is called Belated Birthday-Fashionably Late. (All new sets are now available online at Taylored Expressions) So, isn't this hippo the cutest? When I saw the dress I just knew I had to paper piece it with something very fashionable. LOL I also had to add some bling to her hat feather and necklace. I used Taylored Expression glitter in Starfire on both. I love that stuff!!! It's soooo sparkly! To complete my card I added an inside panel with the rest of the sentiment. It cracks me up every time I read it. A few other things to add before you leave and move on to the next stop are the specials going on right now in the TE store. They are....
