Sneaky Peek Week: Toni's Tea Set

Sneaky Peek Week

Hi again, I'm back with another sneaky peek of a new set being released by The Cat's Pajamas on July 20th. Today's set is Toni's Tea Set--sweet as can be and just perfect for tea drinkers like myself. I love to take my tea with me to work in the morning, so I thought it would be the perfect time to alter one of these stainless steel travel tumblers using the set along with the new TCP Cut-Ups dies. I saw the same tumblers at my local Archiver's store as well.



Just a note about the tumblers: there is room for some layering, but you need to be very careful when inserting the cardstock layer. I made a second tumbler today (which you'll see in the near future), and I rolled a transparency over my insert in order to prevent the layers from getting moved, bent or crumpled when inserting it, if that makes sense. As I pushed in the insert, I pulled out the transparency...clear as mud?

Here are a few more shots...





Ok...now get yourself over to Toni's and Sony's (blogs) for more sneaky peeks of this sweet set! Oh, and don't forget to leave a little love on each of the sneaky peek week blogs this week to be eligible to win all 8 sets being released on the 20th!

You're brilliant! I've made some of these mugs for teacher gifts and never thought about using acetate to help make the sliding in of the insert easier (smacks hand on forehead)! Thanks for the tip!

Your insert is totally adorable too BTW! Love the kraft with the bright pops of color!
