Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Day 3 of release week sneak peeks - where today we are sneaking peeks from an awesome new set called Green Acres - filled with the cutest farm animals and scenes - with HILARIOUS sentiments and cute little says (oh Crop!),  also we will be featuring a new addition to the seasonal wreaths collection concepted by Jami Sibley - with the Patriotic Wreath and the cute little penguin Uncle Sam - along with introducing two awesome new plates in ONE- the chicken wire and woodgrain impression plate - one impression plate with two sides - how awesome is that?!

For my Green Acres card - I just fell in love with all these cute animals - and so I decided to stack them all up and use the sentiment: Happy Birthday from the whole herd :) I created a little scene by cutting out some rolling hill with my scraps of DP and then dotting it with liquid pearls. The animals were colored and cut out and then stacked upon each other with dimensionals - (aren't those animals so cute?!) and then I finished by adding some haystacks on the bottom corner. 
The sentiment was punched out and then I added some ribbons to the back of it and finished it off with some stitching around the edges.

My second card is using the Patriotic Wreath - which coordinates -as do all the wreaths with the Seasonal Wreath die from Taylored Expressions. I love the stars in this stamp and decided to pair it up with the super awesome woodgrain impression plate - I love how beautifully it leaves an impression. I think my favorite thing are those half ruffled banner flags - so easy to cut them out and create a sweet little patriotic border edge - I added a little bling to the in between areas of the ruffles:
And also added a little baker's twine coming to the middle with a little punched star with some liquid pearled edging. I love how all the wreath stamps and wreath are so beautifully interchangeable - and I think this new woodgrain impression plate might be my favorite!

The Tiny Chef Design Team from Taylored Expressions are back!

Taylor is also going to be releasing a little Kid's Summer Fun Pack - each of the pack contains a TON of cardstock, envelopes, card panels, designer paper, ribbon and embellishments galore - AND a chipboard Notebook for their creative pleasure. My little Tiny Chef was SO excited to create a little summer journal with the chipboard notebook. He wanted to create a journal that he could take with us on our travels this summer and write down his favorite summer memories (this is really exciting because he is learning to write - and he creates his own spelling for how he thinks things should sound - which is pretty much the cutest thing:)

We covered each page of the journal with the cardstock in the kit ( I glued the papers  - and he cut it out - I didn't want to give him full control of the glue - because the notebook would then be one big glue blob!) Here is his page about our upcoming trip up to the cabin (or as he says it: Caben :) he used the beach house from the from the Day In Paradise stamp set and colored a night time scene:

Here is his page of our trip later this summer to Baltimore -  we always go to the beach or/and the aquarium there - so he wanted to use the star fish for that page from the Day In Paradise stamp set to be released tomorrow! - I love the way he stamps - and I love that he wanted to write down the "the best fun i had" and numbered it (with matching number of dots! lol!)

We live in Iowa - in the heartland - and the Green Acres stamp set is probably his favorite! he LOVES the bull in this stamp set - and colored in a page (with spaces to write down the fun in iowa) and then my favorite is his page on tractors (or Tracktors).... we see so many different kinds of tractors that go down our street everyday (we live out in the country) and he loves telling me the different kinds of tractors that there are.... I think this tractor stamp is his favorite one!

The best part of the kit is how much he loves creating from it - he loves all the papers - he even counted how many brads there are (he used two brads for the tractor wheels) and I loved seeing him cut and color  and create his journal - he was SO proud - and he can't wait to make more!

It was so much fun to craft along side my Tiny Chef and I had so much fun creating with these awesome stamps and impression plates - Please check out all the lovely ladies on the Baker's Dozen today and their amazing creations  and also their adorable tiny chefs!
