Wishful Thanks...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 1!


Happy Tuesday! It's day one of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and I have two projects to share with you today. 
The first one is a Christmas card I made with my mom-in-law in mind. I gave her one of these very cool Shadowbox Card kits for Mother's Day and I got to create one for this week's Release!


The inside of the kit is so lovely because of the depth and dimension. I used one of the beautiful sentiments in the new Rejoice! stamp set. 


Here is the outside of the assembled card. I used the new Label Stacklets 1 and another sentiment from Rejoice! 


The opened card is very striking -- the green holly and the cream holly are cut from the gorgeous new Holly Cutting Plate. I added some red Stickle holly berries and it really pops!



I just know that my mom-in-love will love this at the holidays!

Next up is a card I created with a really fun new set, Best Nests


This set is full of darling birdhouses and I used the sweet autumn house. Isn't it sweet? I created this card with my parents in mind. Thanksgiving is the most important holiday of the year to our family -- we always try to spend it together. I colored in the image with Copics and I cut it out using the Labels Stacklets one from the papers included in the new Handmade Holiday Project Pantry Kit.

Come back tomorrow for another sneaky peekie! Today, be sure to go check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen's creations. All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, October 4th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.

SUPER super cute Regina! LOVE the shadowbox card!! Your fall birdhouse card makes me smile as well, great papers!

Jami said...

Love what you did with that shadowbox card. I hadn't thought about using only sentiments on it, but it's perfect. I also had not thought of cutting pieces from that holly die, which seems so obvious once I saw what you did! Your birdhouse card is so cute - love that it's fall, but still has a light color scheme.

Love how you used only portions of the holly plate on your shadowbox card! Such a great idea! And I love your fall bird house. Clever to cut the larger frame and pop the image inside of it!!
