Sneaky Peek Day Two from The Cat's Pajamas

Well, hello again friends!  Getting sick of me yet?  I'm about back to the way I used to blog (everyday and then some), just like old times.  I hope ya'll don't mind, although it always strikes me as odd when I get to blogging on a regular basis and all of a sudden I get a few unsubscribers.  They don't like it when I post, or what?  Things that make you go, "hmmm".  Anyway, I'm super glad YA'LL are here--today is the second day of Sneaky Peeks from The Cat's Pajamas!
Today, we are featuring the new set called Key Phrases.  This one is actually a set that our very own (and my very own bestie) Jen came up with.  The best part?  The coordinating Key to My Heart CutUps die set!

For my card, I used both the stamp set and the dies to come up with a hodge-podge/scrappy little design that I love!  I'm pretty sure every single piece besides the card base came from scraps I had in my scrap basket on my desk.  I love it when that happens.  Want to see more inspiration using this set?  Noelle, Wendy and Lori have some super cute things they've designed that will "unlock" so many possibilities!

When you've finished at their blogs, head on over to our SCS Forum and leave a comment on our "In It To Win It!" Thread. You could win the "Key Phrases" stamp set just by leaving a comment over there.

SUSIE Q-TIP:   I am not accustomed to "blank space" on my cards.  So I of course felt like the space under the word "key" needed something.  However, that would have looked dumb and cluttered to add another element right there.  It just didn't work.  BUT, by sewing the card around the edge and doing a little zig-zag step on the side, it kind of looks like I'm addressing that blank area with a little something to make it not so stark.  Try that the next time you sew on your cards.  You could even do it with a little piercing.  Isn't that what ya'll do?...Address your "problem areas"?  I do.

  1. This has so many fun elements...I love it! I've switched up stitches on my cards before, but haven't really been very strategic about where I switch. Next time, I'll pay more attention. The zigzig stitches on your card are perfect.

  2. Super cute scrappy card Susan. Very fun and I really like the kraft background.

  3. wonderful card and love the papers and dies used. The stitching and the zig zag here and there is perfect. Wonderful card.
