TCP New Release Blog Hop

Well, who got their SHOPPING on at THE CAT'S PAJAMAS release party?  What did y'all get?  I'm loving the entire release.  I hope to have more projects to showcase really soon using more of the stamps.  I also have a big plan for something cute with the ORNAMENTS die!  They all have gotten me a little bit pumped for some pre-Christmas cheer (I know, I'm weird like that!).

So today, the Cat Pack has one last dose of inspiration--our new release BLOG HOP!  The hop started over on NANCY'S BLOG and if you made it here from NOELLE'S BLOG, you are moving along in the right direction!  

I am in LOVE with the new DOTS CutUps Die.  I had cut it from the green cardstock just as soon as I received it just to make sure it was going to be a new fave of mine (LOL!) and it was, imagine that!  So the full size green polkadotted die cut sat on my desk and waited, and at that time I didn't know what I'd do with it, other than I didn't want to throw it out just yet.  Then it hit me.  I put the solid red cardstock behind it.  Hmmm.  LIGHTBUUUULBI got out my large PENNANT CutUps Dies and a Christmas tree was born!  I wanted to keep the tree as the highlight of my card, so I kept is super simple and just added a couple of the sentiments from the new SIMPLY HOLIDAY set.  The "happy" and the "hohoho" are two separate stamps.  Alma's smart like that.

Ok, that's about it from me!  Your next stop on the hop is my ultra crafty friend, LISA!  See y'all soon!  Y'all can check out all the new stamps and dies right HERE at THE CAT'S PAJAMAS NEW WEBSITE.
