It's The Cat's Pajamas Release Day!


Well, today is the day. The Cat's Pajamas has just released their two new sets--Happy Camper and Nightie (the first alphabet set)! Today I have my favorite project that I mentioned earlier in the week that I could not wait to show ya'll! Sorry to gush, but I just love love love this project!

It started out as an idea for little postcard notes that a "happy" camper could send back home, but as ya'll know, sometimes a project takes on a life of its own. So it became a little journaling album that you'd send a little "happy" camper off to camp with in hopes of it being completed and brought home as a keepsake.

The back of each card (not pictured--so mad I forgot!) is reinforced with more of Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Campy papers and could totally accomodate a picture to go with the facing card. It makes me happy just looking at it! Don't you love the Nightie Alphabet set?

I only used it for the main words, and handwrote the others on each card for variety (and so it'd fit on some of the cards and they all had to match). However, the letters are just the right size for this kind of project or scrapbooking which I used it for HERE.

I put all the cards together on a binder ring to make it more of a little book and it fits perfectly inside the tin. I didn't do anything to the tin itself. I liked it plain for this theme. I did make the band that goes all the way around it in the middle and it just slides right off to open the tin.

The ribbon, vine ribbon and button are all from The Cat's Pajamas as well. Yes, Alma is now going to sell her exclusive ribbon and button collections on her site. These two are from the new "Great Outdoors" collection which are fabulous! Anyway, I hope you get a kick out of this fun project and check out the new stamp sets for yourself. While you're at it, check out some of the other Design Team members and see what they've done with these sets for your viewing pleasure. You can also go to the TCP Gallery HERE. Drooling is totally acceptable.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When doing an intensive project like this, keep it on the simple side (to whatever degree you see as "simple"). Use repeating themes and layouts to save time.
