Nothing kickstarts a card quicker that having a good sketch.  This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA111) offers you the perfect foundation–a classic sketch by PPA Design Team Member Margaret Moody.  Be sure to play along this week . . . use any brand of products you want!  See Pals Paper Arts Design Team Cards and Inspiration.

Holiday Mini Catalog on Sept. 1, the PeekABoo Frames Bigz L Die has been one of my hottest  Big Shot accessories.  I'm lovin' the way it works for an advent calendar (see p. 36 of the mini) . . . however, it's a multi-tasker far beyond that.  Think about all the surprises you could tuck behind the little "door!"  Images of birthday cakes, punched hearts, sweet sentiments, a little photo . . . endless possibilities.

  • Stampin up owl builder punch holiday mini catalog halloween idea When I layered the Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper Pattern over the PeekABoo Frame door, I recropped the opening slot with my Itty Bitty Shapes Circle Punch for a clean finish.
  • Create the flagged end on the banner in a flash with a 1" Square Punch.  Watch this quick video to learn how.
  • I love the little Halloween Owl from the Warmest of Wishes Hostess Rewards Set (Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog).  It coordinates with the Owl Builder Punch.  What a hoot!  DID YOU KNOW that you can earn hostess rewards with your on-line product order of $150 or more?
  • Dazzling Details Glitter Glue (new in the Holiday Mini Catalog) adds a delicious touch of sparkle to the owl's eyes.  This cute idea was shared with me by Susan Dyas when she sent me this Mini Milk Carton Box and card.  Did your jaw drop as wide as mine?  Visit Susan's blog and get the details.

and it only gets better with goodies waiting inside . . .

  1. Hi Mary, LOVE your Peekaboo Frame Card!!!! So Darling !! I too LOVE the New Peekaboo Frame Die! The possibilities are endless. So I guess it’s back to me to keep the theme going. I’ll be thinking about the next project. Many Thanks to you for the shout out and for also sharing my Halloween gift to you with everyone!!! Hoping that you are having TONS of FUN at Founders Circle!! Sue 🙂

  2. This is SO cool! I LOVE this die and can’t wait for mine. Super cute, Mary! XOXO

  3. I recropped using the itty bitty punch because my square of DSP covered part of the original opening slot. The die cuts it’s own “slot.” I may do a video . . . however, the peekaboo die is super easy to use. Thanks for the suggestion, Chris! Hugs, M

    So cute both yours and Susan’s. I had already put in my order for this die (thinking outside the box already) plus getting that hostess set. You mentioned you recropped the opening slot with the itty bitty punch. Was this to make it easier to open up? Just curious. Now, do we need a WOW video how to use this die?

  5. What cute Halloween projects – you are so creative and patient! Thank you!

  6. What a great set of projects. Love the box made out of the milk carton die and love how you kept the theme going!


  7. I keep wondering about that die – but I don’t think I will wonder much longer! Great effect with the frame – so many possibilities for it!

  8. Ok…I’m convinced…I must have the PeekABoo Frames Bigz L Die! Love it!

  9. Hi Carla: I take full responsibility for “enabling” you 🙂 I originally debated on the peekaboo die, too (thinking it wouldn’t be versatile enough). Now I see it as one of my “go to” dies. Love your idea of jokes and riddles . . . Woo hoo! Hugs, Mary

  10. OK, so I had decided that the Peekaboo frames die was something I could skip, and then you do this! I am not so good at “thinking outside the box”, but love it when others do. With two grandchildren, this made me think of all kinds of things to do for them: birthday cards, riddles, jokes, valentines. So I blame you for the extra big item on my order, lol.

  11. Good morning, Mary: Oh, this is just to cute. I just got the Peekaboo Frames die and I LOVE IT!! This is one amazing die, because you really can use it for any occasion. I totally recomend it.

  12. OMG what a great project! Love it. Hugs

  13. Adorable card! Bonus too … you get to open two flaps!

  14. Mary, your cards are awesome! So cute and clever too! Love it all!

    Great card! How ingenious to put the mini card on the front of the big card. I bet it’s big enough to hold a tea bag for a get well card, too! that die is on my wish list!
