Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 3 !!!!!!





Hi Everyone!


Welcome to Day 3 of Sneak Peeks over at Taylored Expressions, where today we are previewing some amazingly cute and adorable stamp sets being sneaked! - ALONG with some super cute LITTLE designers who are joining us today (more on that to come!!)  We are previewing three super seriously adorable stamp sets: A Little Love, Sweet Friends and and Kid at Heart. All of these will be available on Friday at 8am PST!


The A Little Love stamp set is a mini stamp set that coordinates with the Favor Frame Die and was illustrated by Taylor for the "te" stamp line and is perfect for sweet treats and tags! I altered a Tea Tin using the Valentine's Project Pantry Kit that Taylor will also be releasing tomorrow. I thought that this would be perfect for holding little candy treats and totally love the cuteness of this DP, it was so easy to cut one of the image panels from the DP to attach to the Tea Tin:





The Valentine's Project Pantry Kit along with DP, cardstock, ribbon, brads, heart pins also comes with chipboard - I used the large postage stamp chipboard and embossed it in silver and the inner square I covered it in DP and some ribbon through which I put the Baker's Twine with the tag attached. 




The second card that I made uses the Kid at Heart stamp set that I know you are going to fall in love with because of its BEYOND cuteness! This set is perfect for both kids and all the adults who are also kids at heart! This is the perfect stamp set to create homemade Valentine's for classroom exchange - but it is perfect for birthdays, little love notes and just  because cards. I used one of my favorite images from the stamp set - this cute little dinosaur - with the sentiment: "You're Dino-Mite!" LOL!!!! I used the super cute frame in the stamp set that I inked up in red and then cut out and popped up. I created a little scene for the dinosaur to climb up a mountain and added a little sun to the top of the mountain. All the papers in this card and embellishments are from the Valentine's Project Pantry Kit.. I distressed some of the edges of the papers to give it that "dino" feel :)) It was such a fun card to create!





And now for some exciting news!!!


Awhile ago, Taylor asked us if any of our children would like to be part of a Tiny Chefs Design Team to create some samples for the Kids Valentine Card Kit that she has created. My 6 year old son was super excited to create some cards and he was totally beyond excited to get his OWN Kids Valentine Card kit and to use Taylor's stamps (he by the way - thinks that these are his stamp sets and I have to ask him if I can use them! We spent an afternoon crafting and it was so much fun to see him create these cards. Each card kit comes with image panels, cardstock, cut pieces of DP, ribbon and embellishments and envelopes all ready for 20 cards! He created 6 cards in a row and is ready to create more! I tied little bows and attached them to a glue dot for him to use - but other than that - he did the rest! Here is a pic of my Tiny Chef with his 6 cards :)




And here is a closer look at his cards. He made the one with the purple cupcake for his sister because she loves purple! So cute! And I think one of my faves is the turtle image - where he stamped the sentiment upside down :) He was upset that it was upside down - but I told him that it was perfect that way and totally unique too! I think the best part of making these cards with him was getting to craft together - we had so much fun and he totally cracked me up!


I thought that I would make a quick video of him crafting away - so here is a little video that I created of his craft process :) Please excuse my messy craft space - (how can a craft space ever stay clean is my question?) He loved watching this video and wants to make more cards and our 3 year old daughter who didn't really want to do it in  the beginning now wants to make her own cards too!!! 





We are planning another craft afternoon this weekend and I can't wait to snap some more pics of my two tiny wee ones stamping!!! 


I can't wait to check out all the creations that the Baker's Dozen has created along with all the Tiny Super Cute Chefs that joined in on today's creations!!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
Please stop in tomorrow for Release Day!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
