Hugs {The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek}

Woo hoo! We've reach the final day of Sneak Peeks for the new TCP release. And what a fun set we have for you today. Build-a-Bingo features a bingo card stamp that you can personalize with special days and dates as it also includes several milestone type icons. You've probably spied some of the stamps in this set combined with previous sneak peek stamps. It really is such a versatile set.

I've been seeing decorated envelope pockets all over the internet (Pinterest is a major time suck for me), so I decided to make one using a Valentine theme. I started out with a ready made envie from a notecard set. Using the envie as a template, I covered the back with this fun, graphic paper from Ki Memories and also lined it with some Echo Park paper from the new Yours Truly paper pad. Of course I needed something to go in my envie so I stamped the bingo card image onto plain white cardstock, added the heart within a circle (both included in the set) and placed in the free spot. I used the Queen of Heart Border Cutups to cut the border piece and also stamped the extra word up at the top. I then used the Heart Rosette CutUps to create a second piece; this time I just used the flat rosette, adding a button/pearl combination in the center. I went back to the Gimme Sugar Set revealed on the first day of sneak peeks and stamped the circle and letters spelling out HUGS. And since it was an envie, some postage stamps seemed appropriate so I used the Love Letters and Stamp Trio CutUps to create two of them which I then attached to the top of the flap. I wrapped two ribbons around it and tied in a bow, adding the Ki Memories puffy heart and a few pearls as embellishments.

All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog as well as the list of the Cat Pack members who have a sneak peek today! And, don’t forget that Alma is giving away a set a day to someone that posts on the IN IT TO WIN IT thread on the TCP forum on SCS.

We would also love for you to join us tonight (Monday) at the Pajamas party at Splitcoast Stampers, 8-10pm EST, 5-7pm PST. There will be some chatting, more projects using products from this release and some fantastic prizes.

Now I'm going to be honest with you. I will be at the pajama party for at least a little while but I will have my mind and eyes on something else. I'll be glued to the TV for the BCS National Championship game. Roll Tide! Go SEC!
