Release DAY: Taylored Expressions!!!!!!!

 Hi Everyone,

I am so excited for today - where over at Taylored Expressions - today is  Release Day where everything is available for purchase! YAY! There are so many wonderful sets, dies and card kits that are available for purchase today! Woo-hoo! Check out all the items that are in the store ready for purcahse:
    This release is really full of some amazing items for our crafting pleasure! Today, I have a quick project to show you - don't want to keep you here on my blog when you could be shopping ;) lol! I used the gorgeous Dream Big stamp set and decided to make a longer graduation card (one that can be stuffed with money :) for one of my friends who will be graduating from highschool this year! (say whaaa? when did that happen??!)

    I don't possess the kraft magic gene - but after seeing Karen G's. kraft inspired graudation card - I wanted to try my hand at using some kiraft - so after scoring a longer card, I stamped the row of little graduation hats along the top and bottom and then in the middle, i created a little black frame that I popped up and on the inside of which, I popped up some circles with a stack of books and a graduation hat that I cut out and placed on top (oh- my! this might be the longest sentence I have typed - I don't think my english teacher would be very proud of my accomplishment with sentence structure! :)

    Card Ingredients:
    Stamps:Dream Big from Taylored Expressions
    Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black ink
    Papers: kraft, black, blue and from stash
    Accessories: liquid pearls (of course! :), mini scallop punch from EK success, ribbon from stash, copics and dimensionals.

    I loved creating this card - it was sooo much fun! And the best part is giving it to my sweet friend in just 2 months! (ohmygoodness - and then she will be going to college :((((( waaaah!) But anyhow - I think I might have to create a scrapbook page from her grad pictures to give her to take with her to college so she will always remember everything that she has accomplished and will always continue to dream big!

    Please check out all the gorgeous creations from the Baker's Dozen and friends below and check out the amazing ways that they used all the items from the release in their creations!!!

    This is the prettiest grad card I have seen. Makes me wish I had someone graduating just to make it and give it to.
