RELEASE DAY -at Taylored Expressions!!!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

Well - the day is finally here!!! It's release day at Taylored Expressions - where Taylor is releasing 2 new stamp sets: Berries and Cherries and Chillax - along with a new coordinating Key Ingredient Package called the Berries and Cherries Key Ingredients (complete with coordinating DP, Cardstock, strawberry brads, ribbon, etc) and she has a whole LOT of new stuff at the store (Check out the Section: Fresh Out of the Oven) and now you can get your Copics at Taylored Expressions as well!!!! How exciting is all of that???!!! 

Well - before you head out shopping at Taylored Expressions - here are a few more samples from newest release - I seriously SERIOUSLY LOVE LOVE LOVE these new stamp sets (okay - I know I say that about all the TE stamps - but I adore these fun images and sentiments!)


Here is a fun Margarita Madness card "Cheers" using the Chillax stamp set and using the SCS Sketch 40 . I loved stamping these fun Margaritas and coloring in the different flavors and then adding some clear glaze to make it all glass-y. 

Here is a close up of the glasses and the bling and the rub ons:

Card Details:
Paper: Doodlebug, Bazzill basics
Ink: Stazon' Black
Accessories: K&Co rub ons and bling, ribbon from stash, circle cutter from CM, EK success punch, orange stickles, dimensionals, spellbinder's die


If you haven't tried Taylor's Perfect Packages - you have to check them out - they come folded flat and have strong magnetic clasps for closure and are a snap to decorate - and you can put whatever you would like in them like: giftcards, chocolate, knick knacks, etc. I went with the chocolate route - because.... well.... its chocolate!!! I used the papers in the Berries and Cherries Key Ingredients to decorate it along with the sweet flower and strawberry image in the Berries and Cherries Stamp set:

Here's what it looks like when you open it up --- yum!!! 
(Maybe I should give myself the present! ha!)

Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Spellbinders, bling, dimensionals, ribbon from stash, color pencils and of course Chocolate!

Check out the  perfect packages  and also all the different favor and treat boxes and bags that Taylor has - its really such a great thing to have on hand and decorate when you need a quick thank you or birthday present, etc.

6 x 6  CHILLAX-'in'  LAYOUT

I snapped this pic of my kiddies on the porch having strawberry popsicles after a hard day of riding bikes and swimming (oh the hard life of a kid!) - I loved this picture of them just relaxin and chillin' --- also known as CHILLAXIN' :) on the porch with their popsicles. I couldn't wait to use this sentiment from the Chillaxin' Stamp Set for my layout! I used the Scrappy Sunday sketch from Jen Tapler this week from PaperCraft Planet for this layout:

Here is a close up look at the sentiment and the details:

And then thing that I LOVE LOVE LOVE about making these 6 x 6 layouts is that they are simple and quick! AND that I can display them right away in our living room for all to see using Taylor's calendar stand. The kids love seeing themselves!

Layout Details:
Size: 6 x 6
Sketch: from Jen Tapler: Scrappy Sunday Aug 5th
Papers: black from stash, ki papers, Cardstock from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: bling, K & Co. rub ons, pink lemonade swirl ribbon from Taylored Expressions,

Taylor is also offering special Bundles on these two stamp sets:

Cheers indeed! The bling is fantastic and the glaze really makes the glasses pop! I think I need those boxes after seeing all the creations made with them. I'd fill it with treats, but I fear I'd end up keeping them!

Savitri said...

Just perusing your stuff and you did a scrapbook!! Love it. So pretty and your kids are adorable!!!

I miss visiting your blog regularly. Things are better in the home front and Jovie is actually sleeping in her crib. But, still tired and sometimes, all I want to do is just sit down and stare at the wall :P

Hope you had a wonderful summer my friend!!!
