RELEASE DAY At Taylored Expressions!!!


Good Morning Everyone!

Today is the release of all the new Taylored Expressions stamp sets that you have been seeing in all the sample peeks this week!!! woo-hoo! You might have noticed that there was not a Key Ingredients kit for this release - well, the reason why is because Taylor is introducing something *NEW* called the: Taylored Card Kits!!! You are going to LOVE these kits - I know what I want to see in my stockings :). Each is card kit is $14.95 & will contain the following;
  • 15 sheets of patterned paper cut to 4" x 5 1/4 " and there are 3 sheets of each of the 5 patterns
  • 10 Choice Cardstock card bases (totally love this cardstock for coloring with copics or color pencils-they are so buttery smooth!
  • 10 envelopes
  • 20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Prism cardstock that will be a total of 5 colors total with 4 sheets of each color
  • 1 package of Kaisercraft Pearls
  • 8 sheets of Choice cardstock (cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" for images)
  • 5 yards of ribbon (2.5 yards each of 2 different styles)
  • 1 Perfect Package Card Box

Can you BELIEVE all of that in one kit!!! That is awesome!! Today the Baker's Dozen is showcasing how you can put together one of these cardkits that can make up to 10 cards by showing you a decorated a Perfect Package and 10 cards that will fit in there! Each card is an A2 size and comes with envelopes to match! I love that this box can hold all 10 A2 cards PERFECTLY!

Here is a picture collage of my Perfect Package Box , the front of it and how it opens up (I love the fact that it has a magnetic closure so that it shuts tight and is so sturdy!) and a group shot of all of my ten cards :) using the Crafty Cuppie stamp set and the Crafty Cuppie Accessories stamp set.


The Taylored Card Kit that I am used to make ALL 10 cards is the GIRL FRIDAY CARD KIT (Click on the the link and you can see all the papers, ribbon, pearls and cardstock that come with this kit ALONG with a Perfect Package Box!!! NOW THAT is awesome!!!) I adore Cosmo Cricket and I love the papers in this kit - so fun and bright and cheery!) Also what I love about the Crafty Cuppie Stamp set and the Accessory set is the variety and versatility of this stamp set - you can mix and match sentiments and images to create the perfect card for that special "crafty" someone in your life!!!

__________________________________________________________

CALLING ALL STAMPERS!

Here are some cards for that special crafty stamper in your life: I LOVE the sentiment Inky Hugs!!! :) So excited to be able to send some cards with this sentiment to my fave blog buddies :)

Or this awesome sentiment: "The worst day "Stamping" is better than the best day at work!! LOL! (there is a space in this sentiment so that you can choose which craft you want to substitute in (whether its quiliting, stamping, knitting, etc.)


__________________________________________________________

CALLING ALL KNITTERS!

Here are four of my favorite cards for all of my knitting friends! I am so excited to be able to make these cards for them!! :)

I LOVE this sentiment that you can substitute with different craft sentiments: "I *heart*... and in this case I put in "knitting" - I love the image of Cuppie knitting on this couch :)

Or this sentiment: "Knitting is Cheaper than Therapy" - and again you can substitute this with any other of the stamps in the set - so it can be "Quilting is Cheaper than Therapy, etc...." I love that versatility!!!

This sentiment always cracks me up: "Housework or Knitting? Guess which one I chose?!" hee!!! (and again you can substitute the word knitting with another craft) and if you know me - you know that I never really ever choose housework!!! LOL!!!

And my favorite substitution phrase: "I'd Rather Be..."and in this case - I put Knitting: but I love that I can use this phrase with any of the other sentiments!



__________________________________________________________

CALLING ALL SEWing LOVERS!

These Two cards below are for all the Sewing Peeps! out there :) I love the sentiment: "You're so Sweet!" sooo cute and just the fact that Cuppie is sewing just always cracks me up! I love the fact that you can paper piece the cloth that is being sewn to match your card:


Here is another one using the Sewing Cuppie Image with the sentiment "Housework or Sewing, Guess which one I chose?" How totally cute is that sentiment and this image :) I just love it!


One of my other favorite sentiments from this set (that the top of the Perfect Package Box is Decorated with) is the sentiment: "Do Something Creative Everyday": I LOVE how you can mix and match this sentiment with all of the images in this set or even with some of the accessory images as in the next card! LOVE that versatility! I totally ADORE this image of Cuppie painting - and I especially LOVE what he is painting!!! :)

And here is the last one - its one of my favorite cards (its the same way I decorated the front of the Perfect Package Box): is this card using the sentiment "Do Something Creative Everyday"

After creating ALL of these cards from ONE card Kit - I STILL have ribbon, and DP and cardstock and pearls left over for more!!! It is such an amazing new product that Taylor has put together!!

And GUESS WHAT?! She has 3 Taylored Card Kits that will be available today!!! Check out the Baker's Dozen Blogs today to see all 3 Card Kits: Girl Friday Card Kit, the Bloom and Grow Card Kit and the Pretty Please Card Kit!!! I can't wait to see - come and hop with me (LOL!!! I crack myself up with my rhyming skillzzz!!!)

I love the fact that it is so easy to coordinate making cards, and having the ribbon and cardstock, DP and even an awesome BOX to put them in!!!

These are so amazing, Sankari! Are you sure you did these all last night!?!? I'm starting to wonder if you clone yourself during your crafting time...one Sankari cutting, one Sankari coloring, one Sankari glueing, etc. etc. I don't know how you do it! Each of these is so cute and amazing...what lucky recipients!
