Wrapping It Up with a Few More May Projects

The last day of the May Papertrey Ink countdown for moi. I'm here with a few more projects using my new May products for you. Just having some fun creating over here in my little office.

Sweet Dreams tags and Pajama Patch Dies by Papertrey Ink, works for both pajamas and ugly sweaters

How about a few Christmas tags for you using Sweet Dreams and Pajama Patch Dies? That little touch of felt just takes them over the top. 

Sweet Dreams and Pajama Patch Dies by Papertrey Ink

Christmas pajamas are a big deal around here. I set them out on December 1st for the kids and personally enjoy that cozy sweetness all season long. Of course, I included a sentiment in Sweet Dreams that would work well with the whole Christmas pajama concept. 

I used the coordinating Sweet Dreams dies to create a white base that I stamped the long sleeve pajama top on. I also stamped the same image onto patterned paper (All Through the House paper pad) and hand trimmed the pajama top minus the cuffs and then glued on the base for a paper pieced look. I stitched in a felt Christmas tree using the Pajama Patch dies. Sweetness. Sentiment is stamped on a Tag Sale #10 die

Sweet Dreams, Pajama Patch Dies, and Come All Ye Faithful Additions by Papertrey Ink

I did the exact same thing on this tag, but used a sentiment from Come All Ye Faithful Additions. Now it isn't a pajama top, but can be used for an ugly sweater theme. Just another way you can stretch your stamps a bit. 

Use Sweet Dreams by Papertrey Ink to put together the best kid gift ever that every parent will appreciate

Today's a big deal here with my littlest nephew's birthday party. It's a doggie themed celebration. I went with it with this gift. 

As a parent of a bunch of little kids, I'm overwhelmed a little bit with the toys. So a gift like this would be SO VERY APPRECIATED. If you are needing a gift idea for a child, I'm telling you with all honesty, this is the way to go.  A new set of jammies and a new bedtime book. And of course a card to match. Really folks...this is the best gift! Works for any kid. And you will be beloved by the parents for not contributing to the toy avalanche. 

Sweet Dreams, Tiny Treats Valentines, Tremendous Treats Valetines, and Stitched Banners by Papertrey Ink

And the thing is, with the Sweet Dreams stamp set and dies, you can make your paper pajamas match the actual pajamas you're giving! Which is just so very fun. I colored the jammies here to match the ones I'm giving, all the way down to the doggie on the top. And how about that sentiment? It's a fun one to tie it all together.

Colorful Words, Marquee Cover Plate, Stitched Shamrock, and Pajama Patch Dies by Papertrey Ink

One last card using Colorful Words. I matched it up with the Stitched Clover. On top of that, I used the heart from the Pajama Patch Dies. And the Marquee Cover Plate adds some interest to the background. A special card that I can't wait to give. 

All these new products will be available tomorrow night at The store is updated at 10 PM EST. I hope you'll be adding some new goodies to your collection. Make sure you send me a link to your creations, I'd love to see what you are creating.

More inspiration on Nichole's blog with the new Make It Market Mini Kit. Yeah...that will be coming home here:).
