Merry October Christmas, Everyone! It's the second day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and today I have a fun set to share with you. It's never too early to get a jump start on all those holiday tags and so here is the perfect set to get going: Totally Tags Holiday. Illustrated by the fab Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line, I was able to put together 9 tags lickity split! And, guess what? There is a coordinating set of dies that really make these tags easy to create!

I was going for a bit of a more rustic look and so stamped and colored on mostly kraft cardstock. I added a little fun Christmas cheer with a clear glitter pen and some baker's twine from the TE store. Then, I decided they would make a cute gift for someone who may not have much time to make their own tags this year and so I decorated a little tin using papers and ribbon from the new 12 Days Project Pantry kit! Taylored Expressions is offering a Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice it Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.
