Hi Everyone!!

There is SOOO much to show off this month over at Taylored Expressions! Taylored Expressions is celebrating its birthday and to celebrate - there are 17 new stamp sets and 7 new dies and 5 days of inspiration peeks on all of our blogs!! Its definitely the biggest release yet!

I am so excited to celebrate TE's birthday today because its also my birthday :) I LOVE September and there are so many birthdays and already I have missed a few - and TE has sooo many cute Belated Birthday A La Carte stamps for which is perfect if you are like me and constantly forgetting and trying to keep up with everyone's birthdays :) We are adding more cute little animals stamps to the Belated Birthday stamp sets - and I used the previously released Ducks in A Row stamp set to create this card today:
I loved stamping these cute little ducks in a row (and will I ever get my ducks in order? I hope so :) I also had a lot of fun decorating the little duckie inside :)

Here is a close up of the little duckie holding a ballon using the Make A Wish Balloon Dies (set of 3) to which I added some twine and then "tucked" under her wing :)
I love all of these cute little Belated Birthday A La Cartes - check them all out here:

All customers will be able to get one of the above FREE with a $50 purchase through Monday September 10th!! How awesome is that!!

For my second Project today, I am so excited to show peeks from this new stamp set: You Take The Cake which is our first ever stamp set that showcases the designs of all of our illustrators!! This set will not be available for purchase until after the October release - but of now,it will be FREE with any purchase of $150 or more! This is a total must have birthday set that combines all the super cute sweetness of TE from all the different designers! I LOVE all the sweet cakes and cupcakes and sweet images and the fonts and sentiments are so perfect! 

I made a set of 7 birthday cards featuring the simple cake stand with that delicious looking cake! I added sentiments on 3 cards and kept 4 cards blank:

I used the new Curly Border Die to decorate the bottom border of the 4 blank sentiment cards - I tried to keep the design a bit more CAS ish so that it was easy to mass produce them - I love the look of a simple Kraft CAS card and the My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday 6x6 design paper :
I love the new Curly Border die - it makes such a festive look - and I love how detailed it cuts the paper:
I also created a set of 3 cards with the sentiment: You Take the Cake: I kept the design the same but just added the sentiment at the bottom:

Here is another angle of the cards:

Here is a picture of all three of the sentiment cards - I love how it turned out:

Check out Taylor's Blog to see all the contest details about how you can get two stamp sets FREE of your choice by entering a contest to guess which designer contributed which images - and hop around to all the designer's blogs to see more images from this awesome stamp set!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
Please hop on over tomorrow for more of the birthday bash celebration!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
