October Studio Challenge

Hi Everyone,

It's time for the Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge.  Each month there is a different challenge that allows us to create different projects around the the same theme and this month: the theme is:

Good things come in small packages!  The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors.  Please show us something you'll be giving this year.
I used this challenge to create a little treat bag for my son's teacher. She is truly awesome - I feel very blessed to see how much my son has grown under her love and nourishment. I always enjoy seeing his face when he describes what he learned in school that day - what a gift it is to have a wonderful teacher. I had some pumpkin chocolate popcorn (SO good!) that I bought at the pumpkin patch from our field trip there this week and created a little treat bag using the Love Grows Here stamp set and the Large Kraft Bakery . I love that these bags come in a set of 10 - so its easy to create a bunch at the same time, or have some on hand when you want to create a special treat for someone:

Here is a closer look at the coordinating card that I created using the October Key Ingredients : I colored the sweet little leaves with fall leaves color and then popped it up on the card base with some chipbaord, bling and twine. I added some grass with some Split Pea Taylored Expressions felt using the Grass Border die with a little adhesive on the back:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: October Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Love Grows Here stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Teal Zeal, Memento Tuxedo Black inks
Accessories: Split Pea Taylored Expressions felt , Grass Border die , corner chomper, dimensionals, bling, copics, Taylored Expressions felt, Grass border and cloud chipboard

I love making little treats my loved ones! And making this little treatbag for my son's teacher was such a happy crafting moment. Here is a picture of my son with his teacher - isn't she just the cutest thing! I love his smile when he is with her! Teachers have all my respect - they nourish and nurture the very tender strings of a child's heart - what an amazing profession!

Can't wait to see all the lovely treats that the amazing artists on the team have created for this month's challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,

PS - Here is the Grass Border Die from Taylored Expressions that I created:
