Planes and Owls....TCM Sneak Peek 3

This is my second post for today. Scroll down or click here to check out this week's CASE Study!


Told ya I'd be back (though not in a Arnold Schwarzenegger kinda way!) :)

So back we're back on track with day 3 of the super sneaky peeks of the April release from The Craft's Meow.

The Craft's Meow

Remember that there's a total of 6 fabulous sets being released this month! Today we get to give you a sneaky peeky of 2 of them, (You can check out the previous peeks, here and here!)

First up today is a fabulously fun set by Nina.B called Vintage Rides. Vintage Rides contains a variety of transportation, illustrated in a fun style along as having some great coordinating sentiments! I couldn't resist the sweet plane from this set:

Happy Birthday

Too CAS? Well just open that card and things should get more a little more interesting...

Happy Birthday
Apologies for the pic: it turns out that this only just managed to squeeze into my photo tent!

A simple tri-fold card that features not only the sweet plane but the banner too (FYI: Vintage Rides contains a number of sentiments to fit into that banner!). I got the idea to continue an image over a few folds from one of my Pinterest boards (where else?!)

More fun now as we introduce the second fabulous set for today. Yup. The owls are back! Jenny Suchin has rustled up a sweet set called, Owl Journaling. This super-cute set is fabulous for both cardmakers and scrapbookers alike, and features many li'l stationary/office images that my heart skip a beat! To showcase this set, I decided to do something a little different from your regular card and rustled up a fun gift:

Owl Photo Strip

I decided it'd be fun to create a photo-booth style strip along with a coordinating holder (it's attached to a peg if you're wondering!) ready for some fun photos to be added to it. Let's face it, you didn't wanna just see pics of me on there, so I intentionally left it blank *wink*. The photo-booth style strip was simply stamped using a masking technique of the original Polaroid-style frame so you can customise how many pics to have on your strip - bonus! (FYI: The peg will stand on a table too so you can easily attach that li'l owl the other way around should you have no-where to hang this!)

Well that's your lot for today! I hope you've enjoyed the sneaky peeky and that you'll check out what the rest of the TCM DT got up to with these sets! Remember - there's a chance to win one of today's sets by leaving a comment over on the TCM Blog (comments must be left before 9pm Pacific Time) so go on, what are you waiting for?!

Thanks so much for stopping by again! I'll be back tomorrow to share a sneaky peeky of the final set up for the April release - I can't wait! :D

Catch ya later!
