Time to hammer out another PCS Hop!!

Hello, fans of Pretty Cute Stamps! 
Thanks so much for joining us for the April 2015 Release.
I'm sure you'll find all sorts of goodies to add to your shopping cart today.

You should have arrived her from Raven's Blog.
Isn't so so creative!
I am sure her girls loved that project.
If you didn't come from her blog, be sure to start at the very beginning with Lisa 

Once you comment and follow our six blogs, you will be in the running for a $15 Gift Certificate to the PCS Store!

 For extra chances, 
1. You can "LIKE" Pretty Cute Stamps on Facebook
2.  and/or sign up for the Pretty Cute Stamps Mailing List 
A random winner will be chosen for the prize on April 17th.

My projects today use the new Such a Tool set by Pretty Cute Stamps.  With Father's Day right around the corner, it will be a hit for the man in your life! But with the clever tool images and sayings, you'll be pulling this handy man set for any masculine project.

I stamped the tools and nails/nuts at the bottom of each page of this
4.25 x 2.5 inch pad of paper. It's a great size to tuck into a tool box or tool belt or glove compartment of a car for jotting down measurements or hardware store shopping lists.

A nifty tag is easily adhered using a Removable Glue Dot ® that won't mar the surface of the first page of the note pad.

If your guy is handy, he'll enjoy this card which mimics a tool belt!
The screw brads on these projects come from The Eyelet Outlet.

Here is the blue print of the entire Such a Tool set:

All New Releases will be on sale through April 21, 2015 and you can save even more 
by purchasing the April 2015 Stamp Bundle in the Pretty Cute Stamps store.

Pick up all your tools before heading on over to Karla's blog.

Its Taco Tuesday...

...and a sneak peek of Pretty Cute Stamps' to be released set:
Taco Time!

It has some spicy sentiments! Be sure to zip on over here tomorrow 
for our Release Blog hop to see them all!!

Boy, all this taco talk makes me want to something Mexican for dinner tonight.
Don't you think this set will be perfect for Cinqo de Mayo?

To get my mojo revving, I created this Taco Envelope card!
The 4 inch square insert tucks into that altered envie.
And so could a gift card or small treat!
I used Craft Glue Dots ® as well as Glue Lines ® to secure the Jute Ribbon from 
3 Girl JAM.  While I tied up the red seam binding ribbon with gold cord, a Craft Glue Dot ® keeps it all in place!  

Before you go, what is your favorite Mexican dish?
Wanna share your recipe with me?

Oh...and remember to you will want to take a whack at the PCS Pinata...
a FREE SVG file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon!  


Nesting Dog Thanks!

Matryoshka Mom is a darling new set from Pretty Cute Stamps.
The sentiments cover pregnancy, gratitude, Mother's Day...
and general adorable-ness!

I kept this layout simple so your eye is focused on the dolls and the colors combo.
Remember, Mother's Day is in a month. Don't be last minute in a gift! 
And..thank you mom any month...not just May!

Remember your Mother!

It's that time of year to show your mother that you care for her,
cherish her, and love her.  You might not be able to afford jewels and rings...
but you certainly can afford the Stick Back Bling from the Eyelet Outlet!

Does your mom like a contemporary style?
Show your mother you miss her...
by the color of your heart!


Is your mom more traditional or flowery?
Here is a lovely card to let her know of your love for her!


Thanks for visiting the Eyelet Outlet blog today.
Come over and visit my blog, Sunnyside Up, for more paper, bling, and ink-spiration!


Ruffled Thanks

Don't you just love the contrast between jute string and the seam binding?
I love it!

This is Lemon-Lime ribbon from the LG bundle.

I tied and knotted the Coffee Jute String.
Mini Glue Dots ® work great at adhering your 3 Girl JAM jute string to your card front!
I used double sided tape...and pleated the seam binding for the ruffle effect.
So pretty, so lovely, so happy!

That's what you want when you are making a card to say thank you to someone!

I used Craft Glue Dots to adhere the button b/c of their strength.
The bling comes from The Eyelet Outlet.

For more inspiring ideas, check out the 3 Girl JAM blog today!

A bit of spring...

Welcome, welcome...to day 2 of sneak peeks!
This new set, called Gnomies, is such a sweet outdoors set that is perfect for spring!

I made a Pocket Letter using the Gnomies set for my sweet little niece.
I had sent one to her older sister a couple of weeks ago...
and I could see the wistful look in her eyes.
She is a fairy loving sort of girl.
But any one who appreciates a fairy will appreciate a good gnome!

I tucked in extra images of gnomes...and images from tomorrow's sneak peek.
You will want to check out what the designers unveil tomorrow!
There is some ribbon for her hair in spring green.
Washi tape, stickers, colorful band aids, a fox pin...all tucked behind the ATC cards.

 That middle tag is a book mark...
and to its right is my letter in book form!

Are you getting into these fun Pocket Letters? 
Once you start, you won't be able to stop!

Amble on over to the Pretty Cute Stamps blog...
and gather up this free cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.
It coordinates with the new stamp set being peeked today!
