I adore birthdays and this week's release for Taylored Expressions is a special one -- TE is celebrating three wonderful years of providing sweet creativity for the stamping and creative soul and I'm so proud to be a part of the celebration! This week we have lots of fun projects and today I have two to share. The first uses everyone's favorite cupcake, Cuppie, surrounded by a bevy of sweet treats. Did you know that Cuppie was the star of TE's very first stamp set? Well, as they say, "You've come a long way, baby!" Sweet Party (designed by Jessie Oleson) is the perfect way to party on!

So let's keep the party going with a sneak peek of a darling new set, Build a Treat Borders (a perfect companion to the soon-to-be-released Build a Treat) that has a coordinating set of dies! Concepted by my talented team member, Sankari Wegman, these fabulous stamps create adorable "buildable" treats like ice cream and cupcakes. I've been wanting to create a layout to commemorate my son's very first ice cream cone, so I did a little dance when I saw this set! How cute are those cones and the dies make them so easy peezy, this page was done in no time. By the way, the title was created with a portion of a sentiment from Build a Treat and the previously-released TE set, You're My Type-Upper!)
