The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peeks Day 1

Happy Tuesday!  I am so over the moon this week because its Sneak Peek week at The Cat's Pajamas and I get to play along with the Cat Pack!  Meow!  We'll be peeking a new stamp set each day through Monday and ending with a Blog Hop on Tuesday November 27th...my birthday!  What a great present for me... he he he

Before I show you my peek today, here's a word from Alma...

The Cat's Pajamas is now 10 years old! Alma started making rubber stamps at her dining room table, hand cutting rubber and cushion and attaching them to wood blocks to sell to the local stamp stores where she was teaching.

So much has happened to stamping in 10 years. But our love of stamping is still going strong. So this release, we are excited to celebrate the way we started. With rubber stamps. Not just any rubber stamps. Cling Stamp sets for easy storage and positioning. Perfect for those who love rubber, but also love the convenience and ease of clear. Limited Edition because these stamps are extra special. Lovingly assembled at Alma's dining room table. Just like she did 10 years ago. So snap them up, because only a small number will be made. Her table is only so big.

OK, so are you ready to see the newest penguin on the block??  This little cutie is from the new set "Snow Love".  Is he not the cutest little thing ever??  I used this month's TCP sketch (see the sketch HERE to play along) for my layout and some new Bo Bunny papers.

I also used two of the new Cut Ups dies from this release!  The circle element is actually a new Star Rosette that I left flat and tucked under the olive panel.  And the snowflake border is art of the new Holiday Toppers die...just wait til you see this!  Here's what Alma shared about the awesome new dies:

There are Five CutUps Dies in this release. Along with some "classics" that belong in every die collection, we are so excited to introduce our "Toppers" line. They are shapes that you can use the positive and negatives of to create borders and panels. They are open-ended so that you can create panels of any size using the toppers. You can place them individually or use them together. Endless possibilities!

Here's the link to today's sneak peek thread in the Split Coast Stamper's Forum.  PLUS be sure to check in the "In it to win It": thread to find out how you can win something from the Winter 2012 Collection!
