In a Jam?...TE Sneak Peek Day 2!...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo

I have to admit, I am not that handy in the kitchen. There are a few things that I'm really, really good at making and then the rest usually ends up a very mediocre mess. So, instead I put what talent I do have to good use by dressing up yummies cooked up by other people! Today is Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions Release Week, and we have a darling set and sentiment set to share that are just perfect for giving handmade and "homemade" gifts. From the Heart and From the Heart Funnies are for your friends and family who have a good sense of fun and who doesn't love a gift made from the heart?

When we went apple picking a couple weekends ago, I picked up a jar of pear preserves made right at the orchard. I thought is would make the perfect gift and I was so excited to use these new stamps to create a pretty and fun card and gift set. Plus, do you see the cute tag on the jar of preserves? It's made with a coordinating die! So whether you are a whiz in the kitchen, or a champion knitter, or you just like to give gifts, it will be hard to resist dressing them up for the holidays!

  • Stamps: From the Heart and From the Heart Funnies (Taylored Expressions)
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko); Rose Red (Stampin' Up!)
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red (SU!)
  • Patterned Paper: Bon Appetit (Doodlebug)
  • Accents: Buttons (Basic Grey)
  • Coloring Medium: Sketch Markers (Copic)

I hope you are getting into the gift-giving spirit! Tune in tomorrow for a little "pick-me-up" gift for all you coffee lovers.
