Pink Cat Studio Release!

For the next 3 days we are offering 
At the checkout just enter the code "MegaSale" 
and your order total will be cut in half.
Today we are releasing a bunch of 
adorable digi stamps! They are Christmas,
 Winter and Hanukkah themed.

Aren't these adorable?!!!?
I fell in love with
and decided to make a treat box
to put a few pouches of
Hot Cocoa Mix in.

The template Boxed Lunch is from
 My Time Made Easy
and though this is cute...easy it was not!
Of Course I had to cut all the pieces out 
by hand so that was half the battle.
It is with a sad heart I must share
this is my last dt posting with 
I have taken on a  role
in life that allows little time
for me to create.
 I know I will find time it
is just going to take some time
to figure it out.
Have a great day and 
happy shopping!

pucker up and get a handle on it!

Happy Tuesday, did you have a great weekend?
Mine flew by with no crafting so today I 
hopped over to Feline Playful to grab some
challenge inspiration and went to work.
The first challenge to catch my eye was 
Oh my gosh check out this
inspiration piece by Kryssi Ng:
I have more cards than I care to discuss so I created 
a purse style gift bag showcasing Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket, using the
Pucker Up template from 
My Time Made Easy. 
Adding a handle 
gave it a fun twist
as well as made it easier to transport.
I used some pewter brads as accents and 
photo hangers (CTMH)to attach the handle.
(detail image)
The beautiful butterfly is a Spellbinders Die as well
as the window cut and other paper accents.
I cannot remember where I purchased
the 3 square buttons but it feels great knowing
they are almost gone!
The hemp, sentiment and two toned
Terracotta accent paper behind the butterfly is CTMH.
Well that's about it thanks for
stopping by!

Gobble Gobble Gobble!

The title post translates into sale sale sale!
Yes sir for the next three days you can stock up 
on all the amazing digi's! That includes the newest releases
for Thanksgiving!
Oh aren't these just great!
If you love them all now is the time to pick these 
up because the value pack is 24.99 but don't forget
for the next three days it's half of that...
I wanted to try something different and created 
a decorative sleeve for a champagne glass.
Wouldn't it be fun to do up a whole table like this?
Of course if no alcohol is at your table 
then napkin rings would work too.
is wonderful.
As a special gift to all of our digi stamping friends
 we are giving away a free digital stamp!
 No purchase necessary.
 Just visit this link and you can download this cute stamp.
 It comes in both black & white and in color.

How cute is that, I think she's pushing
pies to help us forget about
Roasted Duck with Apple Dressing.
Thanks For Stopping bye!

Desert Island Crafters Challenge # 19

So, are you suffering from
any sort of a candy hangover today?
We have 3 giant bags of candy in
the house and I am scared!
We have a great itinerary for this weeks
1) Fall theme
2) Lace
3) Leafs
4) Glitter
5) Stitching (Real or Faux)
6) Bling
7) Punches
8) Kraft card stock
9) Pumpking
10) Distressed
With all these options I created a 
Happy Birthday gift bag using the 
My Time Made Easy template
Carry Clutch:
I used options 4,5,6,7,8 & 10
Here is a close up of the glittered button.
This is a pretty good sized bag,
I am certain you could fit 3 of those
smaller sized lotions and sorts from
Bath and Body Works.
Now all I need is a Birthday!
Have a great day!
PS I am going over my Candy Participants and will 
announce the winner soon!
