Just Clownin' Around -- TCPTues212


Have you seen this week's TCP Tuesday challenge, #212? Julie Masse is our host this week, and has challenged us to incorporate paper pleating into our project. If you've never tried paper pleating, it's really easy. Amy Rohl has a tutorial on SCS showing just how easy. No special supplies needed, although a scoring tool and bone folder do make the job much easier. 

I was flipping through some new-to-me, unused paper pads, when the bright colors and fun patterns of Cosmo Cricket's Baby Jane line jumped out. I thought they looked perfect for a circus theme, and have been itching to play with The Cat's Pajamas circus -themed stamps and dies anyway.

The adorable penguin is from Clownin' Around, and the circus tent was done with TCP's Big Top CutUps die. Along the bottom, I used the Circus Border CutUps die.


1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keyword TCPTUES212 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged.
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.



Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
