Day One of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions!!!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

It’s that most wonderful time of … January!! The Taylored Expressions sneak peeks have begun!!! There are A LOT of new things that are going on at Taylored Expressions! A new look (check out the Taylored Expressions Storefront, the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog all of which have gotten makeovers and are simply dripping with yumminess! Also check out the our page in Facebook and stop by Taylor's blog to read all of these new announcements, including the biggest one: 2 new Design Team Members!!! A huge welcome to the two new members of the Taylored Expressions Design Team: Alex Maldonado and Melissa Sauls and the Guest Designer for January: Jeanie Winters! A huge toot toot, highfives and hugs and congrats to you all!!! YAY! Each one of these ladies is a shining star of amazing talent and I am so excitexd to be able to work with them!!!

Speaking of which, I am SOOO excited to show you some sneak peeks of all the new stamps that will be released on Thursday. This first stamps set is called Love Everywhere and uses the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients (for those who are not familliar - The Key Ingredients are a kit that contain designer paper, coordinating cardstock and ribbon as well an assortment of embllellishments - its a fabulous way to create a great set of cards, papercrafts)!!! Okay – for real – I am in love with this set – it is so easy to create a card that is either a CAS card or something maybe with a few more “yummies” on them. ☺

Project 1 - Love is In the Air (Cardset and Favor Boxes)
With Valentine’s day coming up , here is a fun idea of giving some treats to your favorite people wheather co-workers, classmates and friends & family. I made this set of four treat boxes with matching cards. I LOVE this hot air ballon with the sweet heart in the middle. I stamped it twice so that I could pop a dimensional on it:
Each of these treat boxes are from the Favor Boxes from Taylored Expressions (this one is called box with a lid) and are a cinch to create some treat. I stamped the sweet little parachute and then filled it with the stardust stickles. I made 4 cards to go with each of the treat boxes:

Here is a pairing of a card and a matching Favor Box:

And here is a picture of the card by itself (I used two different Spellbinders for the cards:)
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Valentine's Day Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Love Everywhere from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Expresso and Tuxedo black
Accessories: Everything is from the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients except for the rhinestone bling, also has dimensionals, spellbinders, sakura glaze pen, corner rounder, embossing folder

Project #2 - Puppy Love
The second set of cards that I made were super quick and simple (I mean ridiculously quick!) but I wanted to create some really simple and easy cards. Because these stamped images are silhouettes - you can just stamp, stamp a sentiment and add ribbon if you would like too (I still can't believe that I created one layer cards!!!
I thought it would be so perfect to create a set of these for my kids for the class:)

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Love Everywhere from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Expresso and LadyBug Red
Accessories:Heart bling and ricrac ribbon from the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients

Project #3 - February Calendar
This third project uses the beautiful calendar downloads that Taylor has in the store. With one purchase of the download -you can print it in your house again and again for all of your different projects. I printed it out on Buttercream cardstock and then decorated it using this stamp set and am so happy to be able to display it in the home office desk when February rolls around.


Here is a closer picture of the images:

Project # 4 - Bursting with Love:
I don't usually have favorite projects, but this last card makes me so happy :) Using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped all of these images to create a scene (in this card, there are 5 stamps from the stamp set that are used) I love that these stamps can allow you the versatitlity to work on them individually or to pair them up with each other and all of the different sentiments to create so many different card ideas.
