Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Campaign

Hi Everyone,

Today is a special day over at Taylored Expressions! Earlier this week Taylor launched her new web-store Taylored Expressions and today she is introducing the Share Joy campaign which is an invitation for all of us to share our happiness when we craft a handmade card! Here is more about this campaign in Taylor's words:

The Share Joy campaign is an invitation to celebrate the joy of card making and to share that joy with others.  The gift of a handmade card can bring a smile to anyone’s face, and we want to bring as many smiles as we can to the faces of people around the world!  Please join us in creating and sending handmade cards that will make a difference in the lives of others. 

I love this campaign because it is all about focusing on why we create handmade cards and projects in the first place - to share joy - to bring joy and to let our words be of comfort and joy. I think my most favorite thing about creating cards to give to someone is to see the look on their face when they open it - just their smile makes me so happy :) It makes the whole card making process so sweet and so much fun! 

Today, I made a fun little encouragement card using the Make the Grade stamp set: I love the simple sentiment: A+!!! Who wouldn't want a card with straight A's - I know that I always did in school - and couldn't wait to have my mom put it on the fridge!!! LOL!

Card Ingredients:
Stamp: Make the Grade stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Papers: scrap pieces from Simple Stories and Bazzill
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red inks
Accessories: dimensionals, corner chomper, green grosgrain ribbon, bling, EK success mini scallop punch and liquid pearls.

Check out Taylor's Blog today to see how you can participate in this campaign and Share Joy where you can donate your cards to a different charity - the first one will be to donate cards to hospital chaplains - and if you use TE stamps and send them in by August 16th, your card can be featured on the homepage for the September release! Learn more about this Share Joy campaign and  start by sharing the Joy!!! Check out all these amazing designers who are sharing the joy!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - you are an A+!
