On top of using that CutUp, I also used the Stitched Cloud CutUps, and the Fancy Flips Frame CutUps. My paper is from the Kaiser Craft paper pad, Little One. I paired it with MFT cardstock in Soft Sky, Sour Apple, and Orange Fizz. The only other embellishment I had room for were Michael's brads...and I just realized that as I typed this.....

Today, we are peeking an amazing new sentiment set called Stacked Sentiments, and I snuck in a couple of the new CutUps, too! 


Along with the Stacked Sentiments, I used the new Birthday Balloons and He Said, She Said CutUps. I paired them with some Echo Park Pirates paper....that may not be the name of it, but it certainly was the theme(and I bought it at the Kraftin' Kimmie Store). I used lots of buttons, some hemp cord, and various colors of cardstock from MFT(Nightshift Blue) and Bazzill(Lipstick and Banana Split).

TCP Peeks Day Three-Seas The Birthday



I honestly don't know how I got so lucky to get to work for such amazing companies, but every release, when I see the new sets, I just get even more impressed with their products, and more excited about how lucky I am......seriously, don't pinch me.....I don't want to wake up, and let's face it, I don't sleep enough anyway.

So anyway, today at The Cat's Pajamas, we are are peeking the AMAZING new set, "Seas the Birthday"...it is TOO much fun!!


I paired my set with some Simple Stories Summer paper, and used the Dots CutUps to create my background....between it and the buttons from MFT, it makes me think of bubbles. For my image, I used Copics, then cut it out with and Oval Stax, then used Michael's brads, spiral clips, and some MFT Orange Grosgrain.

Here are the TCP products I have used:

Peeks for this month's The Cat's Pajamas Peeks started yesterday, and although I didn't play along yesterday, I have a peek for you today....so ENJOY!!

Today's peek features the HE-LARIOUS new set "Lemons." I gotta say, I have never been more inspired to finish the inside of a card in my life, lol.


I used Penny Black paper for my card. My cardstock is Lemon Tart from PTI, Berrylicious and Kraft from MFT, and White from Michael's. I threw this all together and embellished it with MFT buttons in Banana Split, Sweet Tooth, and Berrylicious, a spiral clip, some Kraft grosgrain. The CutUps I used on my card are the new County Fair, Apron Border, and the Stitched Clouds.


I love this sentiment so much, it's super snarky, just like me. :)

First of all, we got a sweet new BABY set from Cheryl Grant called WELCOME TO THE WORLD, which I am using today!!




I paired my super cute image from the new Welcome To The World set with a paper pad from Penny Black. I used MFT Cardstock and buttons in Orange Fizz, Blu Raspberry, Bubblegum, Lemon Drop, and Sweet Tooth....and some Orange Fizz grosgrain. My brads are from Michael's, and I used spiral clips as well. My image was cut out using the MFT Circle Stax, and I used the MFT Fishtail Flags to cut out my flag panel. I also used this month's sketch!!


Here are the details for using the KKS Sketch:  
The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card!  You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if ya need it!
