The Pajama Party Meets Cloud Nine (and other stamp sets)

Today I am going to tell you how I am "blending" Cloud Nine and other stamps with the Big Picture Classes Pajama Party layout I have been telling you about for the past two weeks.

I just learned that the Sarita Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go® is no longer available for purchase. The WOTG included this stamp set that was used on the above layout:


Since I first learned about the Pajama Party I have been thinking about different stamps that could be used to create a similar layout and if you recall my January 9 post, I had already suggested a different stamp set to use. Why? Because I know not everyone has the same tastes and might not want to have an identical layout (except for the photos of course) to the one shown above. I also think not everyone may want to purchase the WOTG just for the stamp set. In addition, I understand after the December holidays some people do not have extra funds to purchase non-essential (gasp, crafting is not essential?) purchases. Finally, in all honestly, shipping at the beginning of this month was a little delayed for several reasons: the weather, the end of the 4th quarter (where Consultants have to meet minimum sales to remain a Consultant) and January 1 was the start of the preview period for new CTMH products (this is when a Consultant can order new product from the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book). Consultants, including me, want to get those new products so we can show you the great new papers, embellishments and stamp sets we have to offer you. I did not want anyone to feel that they had to order this WOTG to create a similar layout; I also did not want anyone be disappointed in the unlikely event their items did no arrive prior to the Pajama Party.

That said, these are the stamp sets I shopped from my stash to use (I put a pinkish outline around the stamps I plan to use):


These stamp sets are:
  • D1595 Cloud Nine (coordinates with the Artiste cartridge; only available until January 31 or while supplies last whichever comes first)
  • D1559 Geometric Backgrounds
  • D1586 Ivy Lane Cardmaking WOTG (coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge and available to order February 1)
  • E1027 Framework Alphabet (to stamp "Lots" where "In Love" appears)
I hope to carve out some time this weekend to create my version of the layout. I hope you like my idea for shopping your stash.

If you want to think outside the box with me...I will be posting details in the next few days about a drawing for a stamp set that I will be sponsoring. Please stop back for additional information.

If you do not have a CTMH Independent Consultant yet, I would be happy to help you learn more about CTMH products. If you are ready to place an order click the Shop Now button below to browse the products available.
