Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge

This month, Taylored Expressions is launching a new feature for the design team, the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge! Each month, the design team will be creating projects to share what makes our stamping studios hum with a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

Here is July's challenge:

You're stranded on a desert island. The good news is that you find a fabulous stamping hut well-stocked with papers, inks and other stamping supplies, however you only have the 5 stamp sets you brought with you in the luggage you managed to salvage. So tell, us what stamps sets did you bring and why?

Yikes! How to choose? Well, I managed to do it though it was really hard! Here they are:

Obviously, I created my card today using the adorable Bugabee set. It's been one of my "go-to" sets for happy cards. I also chose A Year of Sweet Sentiments and Borderlicious because they are really terrific for using on a wide variety of projects all year round. Love Grows Here would be great to have on the island because it, too, can be used any time of year and for so many different projects. And last, but not least, I chose Delightful Day because it is just so darn cute and I love the sentiments and conversation bubbles!

Stamps: Bugabee (Taylored Expressions); Patterned Paper: 100 Days of Summer (Simple Stories); Fibers: ribbon (Stampin' Up!); Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Accents: Fabric Brad (American Crafts); Dies: Bugabee Dies (Taylored Expressions)

Be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to find out what sets they would bring to keep up their stamping mojo!
