Join a Pajama Party!

Mark Your Calendars for a Pajama Party on January 30

Close To My Heart is doing it again. They are teaming up with Big Picture Classes to bring us another Pajama Party. It will be on Thursday, January 30, 2014 from 9:00 pm to 10:30 pm Eastern Time.

The event is free, but if you want to participate in the chat, complete challenges, download files or enter to win prizes, you must log on that night. If you are not registered at Big Picture Classes (registration is free and you will not receive any unwanted mail), you will find a link to register at the Pajama Party page. You can register today and just sign in that night.

Here is the layout we will be creating:

The layout is the Bottom Border—Title™ pattern from the Reflections™ Scrapbook Program (9037).

Based on the supply list, and the photo above, it looks like the cardstock colors used on this layout are: Cranberry (2 sheets), Hollyhock, Cotton Candy and White Daisy (you might want to wait to cut any paper until the night of the Pajama Party just in case… ).

The (3) photos are 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

You will use one 12″ x 12″ [Cranberry] cardstock for your base.

You will need the following pieces of cardstock (the labels in blue on the photo above correspond to these letters):
A  2 1/2″ x 12″ [White Daisy]
B  9″ x 6″ [Cranberry]
C  7″ x 12″ [Hollyhock]
D 5″ x 12″ [Cotton Candy]

One piece of washi tape covers a scrap of White Daisy (upper left and above the photo on the left). A scrap of Hollyhock is stamped and used in the lower left. “Lucky” and the flower are stamped on White Daisy; the cardstock was cut using the Artiste cartridge.

If you would like to create this layout exactly as pictured above while watching the Pajama Party, the supplies you will need are:

  • G1066 Workshops on the Go™ Sarita Scrapbooking Kit — for the stamp set
  • X5935 Adventure Cardstock Combo Pack, or
  • 1272 Cranberry Cardstock
  • 1246 Hollyhock Cardstock
  • X5760 Cotton Candy Cardstock, plus
  • 1385 White Daisy Cardstock
  • Z2106 Blush Exclusive Inks™ Pad
  • Z2170 Ruby Exclusive Inks™ Pad
  • Z1826 Hollyhock Zipper Lace
  • Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems
  • Z1850 Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape
  • Z1294 Sanding Kit
  • Z1151 3-D Foam Tape

Of course, you can make this layout uniquely your own by substituting other colors or stamp sets using supplies you have on hand at home.

The Sarita WOTG stamp set which was used in the layout pictured above is no longer available. (Check out my CTMH website for the list of retiring items and already gone items).

If you don’t already have the Sarita WOTG stamp set, here are some great alternatives to create your own version the layout:

  • D1595 Cloud Nine (coordinates with the Artiste cartridge; only available until January 31 or while supplies last whichever comes first)
  • D1559 Geometric Backgrounds
  • D1544 Distressed Backgrounds
  • D1540 In the Background
  • A1121 A Blossom (coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge)
  • C1540 Hello Blossoms (coordinates with the Artiste cartridge)
  • 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)

Now is the time to go through your stash and create your own twist on the layout, thinking outside the box and using materials on hand.
If you want to think outside the box with me…create your own version of the layout and bring it to my Open House on this Sunday (see my Open House post for details) or send me an picture of your creation and I’ll post all entries, with prized awarded…

I plan to join the Pajama Party Thursday, and I hope to see you there!
