HI Everyone!

It's release day over at Taylored Expressions, where you will find all of this month's release ready to come to your craft desk!! Today, I am so excited to use one of the sweetest holiday sets that will be so versatile with all of your sentiment needs: the Banner Holidays Stamp set which coordinates with the popular: It's a Banner Day 1,2,3" sets originally concepted by Iwona Palamontain. You can use the banner frame images from these sets and they also coordinate with the Banner Day 1, 2, 3 die sets as well. This gorgeous stamp set was designed and illustrated by Taylor VanBruggen for the TE collection and is a mini set made of 15 holiday sentiments - it might be mini - but its maximum on super awesome holiday sentiments! All of the Taylored Expressions stamp sets are made from top-quality deeply etched rubber in a cute shade of pink with EZ mount already trimmed and ready to be stamped with your acrylic  blocks. 

For my project today I created a little door hanging for the holidays using the Banner Holiday's Sentiment: Merry Christmas with Darcie's Acrylic Shadowbox Frame - Addison Small from Taylored Expressions. I used the super cute owls from the Woodland Winter stamp set to create a little scene - my son wanted me to make two owls - just like him and his little sister - so I created two little owlies sitting on the branch. The Shadowbox frame was painted and slightly glitterized and I used one of the DP's from the 12 Days of Christmas Project Pantry for the background of my box. I  stamped the sentiment from the Banner Holidays Stamp set and then adhered it to the top of the frame before I put the clear vinyl frame over it:

I adhered the ribbon to one of the layers of the shadowbox frame and then created a larger bow at the top  of the door hanging hook. I love that these two little owlies (much akin to my two little owls) are going to welcome us home during the winter season! Here is how it looks hanging on our door:

The Banner Holidays stamp set has all kinds of awesome sentiments in all different shapes and swirls ready for holiday card making! I have loved this release and enjoyed playing with every single cute stamp set - and have been blown away by all of the amazing creations from the DT! And today is no different - Check out all the amazing creations that these amazing ladies have created today!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
