The Cat’s Pajamas Blog Hop!



Welcome to The Cat’s Pajamas Winter Blog Hop!  All of these awesome new sets and dies are now available in the TCP Store, and today we’re pulling out all the stops to show off the sets again in a Winter Blog Hop!  This also kicks off our Winter Customer Blog Hop, where you can play with any of our new TCP Goodies and be entered to win even more!  

You should have come from our fabulous leader Nancy Thomas’ blog, but if you get lost along the way be sure to pop by the TCP Blog.   

I thought I’d get creative and put together a spinner card with our new set Penguin Joy!  

You know, I don’t know if I’ve ever made a spinner card like this before, and I have to tell you it was so fun!  I just squeeled when it all came together because it’s so cute!


Alma put together the cutest elements in this set, including images of our sweet little penguin from the front and the back, as well as some snow angel lines.  All together it works perfectly for a spinner image because you can show his front and back as it spins.  Above is what the card looks like closed.

I wanted to create the spinner to partially flip open as a frame when you open the card, so I have a lot of pictures to show you what it looks like.  I used TCP’s Framed Up 2 to create the circular frame that extends beyond the fold.



I stamped the penguin front and back, trimmed him out and added him on each side to the snow angel outline.  I placed those onto a circle of vellum with twine in the middle.  You wind it all up before you put it in the envelope and then when you open it.....



He spins like crazy!  




Gah, just look at his cute little penguin bum!    Here’s another peek at the set, where you can see all those cute little penguins.  



Hope you’ve had some spinny fun here today, now I’m sending you on to the lovely Stacy Schafer for more of the Blog Hop!    Thanks for joining us this week, it’s been a blast!
