It's the very first day of Sneaky Peek Week. That means that a week from now is the first day you can get all the goodies in this collection on The Cat's Pajamas website.
Ready?! Snow Days features the ever popular Bunny, except this time instead of riding his bike, or flying his plane, he's taking advantage of a snow day and engaging in a little horseplay. Or should I say, bunnyplay?
Take a look at this soft and pretty card by Jackie Pedro. Who would've thought that a snowball fight could be so elegant? Did you notice the pretty little snowflakes?
They all come from our NEW Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps die. It's our riff on the Doily Die. Not only does it cut a wonderful lacy doily, but it cuts out 3 different sizes of snowflakes, too. It's like getting four dies in one.
Now take a gander at this card by Susan Liles. I'm loving the color combo here. Very Sugarplum Fairy.
It's the second day of Sneaky Peek Week. And it's Big Bear's turn to come out and play in this brand NEW set, "Merry Christmas, Honey".
This set and all the sets and CutUps Dies you see in our NEW Fall Collection will be available Nov. 29.
First, up is Leigh O'Brien. And not only is she showing off "Merry Christmas, Honey" and a snowflake from our Snowflake Lace Paper, but she's showing off another one of our NEW CutUps, the "Anywhere Ribbon Slide" with the tried and true Big Scallop Border.
Punched ribbon slides have to be cut on the edge of the paper, with the "Anywhere Ribbon Slide" you can put it anywhere on the paper you are die-cutting, like right above a fancy border like Leigh's done.
Even I had to get into the act and use "Merry Christmas, Honey". I paper pieced the tree and colored the rest. Really a simple card, when you think about it, fancied up with the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps.
Happy Thanksgiving, to everyone in the United States. I hope you are full of Turkey and relaxing before you start on the leftovers. It's Day 3 of Sneaky Peek Week and today we are bringing you a stamp set featuring one of my all time characters, Mr. Penguin. Or Larry, as I like to fondly call him. This little guy is wonderful to paper piece or color.
Take a look at this card by Jenny Peterson. It's just darling, don't you think? Just a sweet little image that you can dress up or down. And that sweet bit of ribbon is actually a brand new color of seam binding, Cranberry. Just right for the season and soft as can be.
And you see that pretty cut out under the sentiments, that's our third NEW CutUps, the Gift Card Envie. Not only can you make a gift card with it, but you can do what Jenny did. Take a peek at her tut.
Here's another take on "Best Fishes" by Leigh O'Brien and another look at the yumminess of the Cranberry seam binding with our NEW Anywhere Ribbon Slide. Along with Cranberry, we're bringing in 3 NEW colors, Evergreen, Cornflower, and Tinsel, just in time for the Holidays. And she sprinkled in a couple of snowflakes from the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps for good measure.

It's Day 4 of Sneaky Peek Week. Hump day. The bunny is making another sweet appearance in this NEW stamp set, "Freezin' Season". "Freezin' Season" and all the stamps and CutUps dies we are previewing during Sneaky Peek Week will be available on November 29.
One of the reasons to love this bunny is that he is do easy to "do up". Like in this card by Amy Rohl. She stamps the bunny, paper pieces him and then colors him. Paper piecing is an easy way to bring color and pattern to your cards. Then Amy finishes it off with our NEW Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps and a twist of our NEW Seam Binding in Cranberry.
Here is the bunny "done" up simply on this card by Jenny Peterson. By keeping him and his little friend simple you can go all out with the background. She also uses the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps. The CutUps is very detailed, so you may have to pass it through your die cut machine several times with shims. Unless, of course, you want the look of the center tree. You can run it through without cutting all the way through, or do what Jenny did and through with an embossing pad. Either way works, but using the embossing pad gives you a more consistent look.
And, Jenny uses the Anytime Ribbon Slide CutUps, too. Designed for 1/2" ribbon, you can use it with a smaller width and get this look.
In this easel card by Lori Tecler, she keeps the bunny and company, simple and clean. She doesn't dress him down, but up, in elegance. Love that she uses the Anywhere Ribbon Slide at the "base" of the card with our New Seam Binding in Cornflower.

It's Day 5 of Sneaky Peek Week! Wow, we are more than half over with Sneaky Peek Week. Time certainly flies. PJ the Bear is making his Holiday appearance in "Peeking" Having unwrapped a couple of presents before Christmas in my day, I certainly know that look. It's the "What? I was just admiring the bow on this present, really", look. Do you know it? "Peeking" and all the stamps and CutUps dies we are previewing during Sneaky Peek Week will be available on November 29.
Even though it's the Holidays, "Peeking" is one of those classic images that you can use all year long. Just by changing out the paper and embellies, you've got a different look, for a different time of year, different occasion. You really can't go wrong with this sweet image for any time where there is gift giving.
Like this card by Leigh O'Brien. She makes make the perfect Holiday card by paper piecing the gift, coloring PJ and tucking in the Snowflake Lace Paper CutUps behind him. A little snowflake embellie from the CutUps and it's done.
Like this gift bag by Nancy Thomas. She does a simple tag but makes it "Holiday" with the color palette. It's a fast and easy way to dress up a gift bag. I know I have a TON of these to make.
