Congrats! You’ve made it to Day #6 of Sneaky Peek Week. I’ve been wanting to do a celebration set for a while now. Besides graduation, there are so many other times we celebrate in our lives. A new baby, a promotion, getting a new job, being accepted into college… how about the New Year? And, who better to help us celebrate, but the long- eared bunny! Presenting “Winning!”
We picked a WINNER from the comments on Brenda Nakandakari’s blog. And the winner is:
Annette :)! Congrats Annette :). Please contact me at email@example.com to claim your prize.
Day 3 is here! It’s the last the last Sneaky Peek Week of the year and this time of year I tend to feel a little nostalgic and surround myself with people I love and really miss the people who are not around. So, this set celebrates them. This little set is called Hugs Needed. You can get the entire release on November 26. But, if you just can’t wait, the set is available now.
This sweet little card by Kerry Urbatch is just too adorable. This little boy and girl are two separate stamps, but work really well together. Kerry adds some doodles here and there to customize her card.
Beata June creates a scene on her card. It’s simple but, really tugs at the heartstrings.
Am I the only one that let out a great big sigh when I saw this pretty from Rebekah Weckerly? I love this little dog waiting for his person. The delicate clouds she created in the background just add to the whimsical quality of this card.
Finally, Julee Tilman gives us her spin on this set. The background is created using the NEW Pattern Builder and the Stripes and Plaid Stencils. You get 3 different sizes of them when you get the Pattern Builder that you can mix and match. A swatch of grass really brightens up the card and ties the whole thing together.
I hope you really liked the cards The Cat Pack created. Now, go to their blogs and let them know by commenting on their blogs. You could win a $10 gift voucher. We’ll pick a winner each day this week from the comments on the blogs and post the winners here and on our Facebook page.

Today is Day 2 of the last Sneaky Peek Week of the year and today we are sneaking peeking a sweet little set called Hello Darlin’. You can get the entire release on November 26. But, if you just can’t wait, the set is available now.
Even flamingoes and ostriches need love. Brenda Nakandakari gives a vintage twist to her pretty card. Is it just me, or are you waiting for ukulele music to start?
I really, really dig Rebekah Weckerly’s card using the same stamps. Same stamps, totally different look, especially where googly eyes are concerned. Googly eyes add sooooo much.
I like this card by Julee Tilman a lottle. Julee uses the NEW Shakey Serif Alphabet Stencilz to create the “Hi” in her card. Since it’s a stencil, it’s a fantastic way to personalize your cards and projects with your own message for a great price. The stripes are custom too, made with our NEW Pattern Builder. You get 3 different sizes of stripes with the Pattern Builder to get you started. It’s a great way to create custom stripes and plaids. And those darling drops on either side of the sentiment? They were made with the NEW Hand drawn Scrolls Stencilz.
Here’s a little video that shows you how the Pattern Builder works.
I’m so excited to announce that The Cat’s Pajamas is sponsoring the Bella Crafts LIVE Event! Join us tomorrow at 10am pst on their Facebook page. It’s sure to be a lottle fun!

I can’t believe that the year is almost over. Stores are ALREADY putting their Christmas goodies out in the stores and we are putting out Valentine’s Day 😉 Lucky for all of us, every day is the perfect day to tell the ones you care about that you love them.
Today is the very first day of the last Sneaky Peek Week of the year and today we are sneaking peeking a sweet little set called “Stuck on You” and the matching die. You can get the entire release on November 26.
I don’t know what it is that I just love about succulents. They are so cute, but prickly too. Hmm. Kinda sounds like me. This first card is by Wendy McGaffey and her card is just beautifully colored. This stamp set also has a matching die available, to make it easier to arrange your little succulents. Purchase the bundle and save.
I like the way that Cristena Bagne thinks. Her sweet little porcupine/hedgehog just needs some love.
Kerry Urbatch puts a festive twist on these sweet gift bags, stamping the cactus and doodling sweet colored lights on the cactus and at the top of the card. All it needs is the gift and it goes right up on the tree.
Here’s a look at the other. Love the touch of white for a spatter of “snow”. These sweet cards are perfect for those of us that don’t get snow for Christmas.
Deborah Anton creates easy little 3 x 3 cards. They may be small, but they’re mighty.
Don’t forget our TCP Tuesday Challenge. It’s all about November, December and January Holidays.
These cards are just too sweet, don’t you think?! I could only show a few of the pretties The Cat Pack created. Take a gander at the rest of The Cat Pack’s goodies, and then comment on each of the following blogs and you could win a $10 gift voucher. We’ll pick a winner each day this week from the comments on the blogs and post the winners here and on our Facebook page.

It probably is a no brainer that The Cat’s Pajamas is a sponsor of the 2019 Cat Lover’s Hop. If you want to play along, just head over to HerPeacefulGarden.blogspot.com and find out how to play. Here is the main post.
One of my very favorite sets is the “What the Froth?” stamp set. And, it’s what we are giving away as a sponsor.
So, I thought I’d go into the archives and show you what you can do with this set. It not only features a couple of really awesome cats, but my favorite drink, at the moment. 😉
For this card, I thought it was perfect for a wobbler. Not familiar with a wobbler? Check out this how-to video.

Is it just me or is the month of October just flying by? Appropriately, the October TCP Tuesday challenge is all about Fall. Fall activities, Halloween, Thanksgiving or just simply fall colors. You still have the half a month left to submit a project and there is a $50 gift card to the TCP store in play.

Who wants a Trick if you can have a Treat? That’s what I always say. Stick a “gnome” in there, and it’s a no brainer.
I’ve been loving all the gnomes EVERYWHERE! So, I decided to create these sweet treat holders with gnomes in mind. (If you don’t have a crimper, add glue with the tape)
- I started with a 6” x 6” sheet of Christmas paper and added double-sided tape to three sides on the “bad/other” side of the paper to form a “u” .
- Join the bottom of the “u” to the other side forming a tube.
- Then, insert into a crimper and crimp about 1/2” and fold over.
- Fold the bottom of the tube together and crimp trying not to place the first crimp from #2 in the center
- Add the treat, and press the top of the tube together at a 90 degree angle from the bottom and crimp
It’s that simple. Now you can spend your time decorating. I used our Beard CutUps Die and embossed it with our Woodgrain Stencilz to give the impression of hair. Place the beard in the bottom section of the holder with the top part of the treat holder forming the hat.
I added a nose cut from our Rudolph die, but you can use an oval or circle punch. I put the nose over the mouth hole in the beard, so the mustache became eyebrows. Then, embellish to your heart’s content. For this gnome, I finished it off with a felt Poinsettia and button.
I think that gnomes are not just for Christmas, so I created a couple of different gnomes for different times of year.
Here’s my Halloween Gnome. I added a spooky eye sticker and big black nose.
How about a gnome for your sweetie? I had this metal embellishment and added “hands” made from folded black ovals. A plaid bow completes the look.
Spring is Gnoming. This sweet gnome has a plaid bow and felt flower for his hat.
It’s such an easy project to make and it leaves lot’s of time for embellishing, which I think is really fun. Give it a try.
I’m loving all these little tiny villages and houses I’m seeing everywhere. But, I don’t love the price. You have to pay for each component of the land and they also take up lots of real estate. So, I took the TCP Tuesday Challenge, and made it my own by creating my own little worlds using the NEW Hey Boo! Stamp Set.
I found the lantern at the Target Dollar Spot and knew that it would be perfect. I also hit the Dollar General and Dollar Tree for some supplies, like pumpkins, and floral picks.
I painted some of the pumpkins white and after they dried I used double-sided tape and glue dots to embellish them with glitter.
I used the FREE cutting files to cut 3 of each of the witches from the Hey Boo Stamp Set. I stamped one of each and layered the rest with a wire between two of them. And, inserted them into the pumpkins to decorate. I added them to the lantern along with fairy lights. Easy Peasy.
I did, have 2 little witches left and lots of pumpkins left. So, I decided to make another world with a cloche to hold it.
I actually made 2 cloches from soda bottles and Christmas ornaments and had them rest on these pretty pedestals. I think they are AWESOME! I love the little rat checking out the witches.
Here’s a closer look what is under the cloche and the glittered up pumpkins. I may add fairy lights, because, why not?
These guys were so easy to do, I hope you give them a try.
