Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Father's Day a la Carte

Hey everyone and welcome to the big release!!! I have one last set to show you that is released by the time you read this!! Just in time to start making those Father's Day cards...we have Father's Day a la Carte!


Now I totally fussy-cut all those letters, but you certainly don't have to! I just thought it would be neat to show all those tools popped up! I colored the letters in with my Copics and then used Silver Stickles to mimic the metal in the tools. Looks really sparkly in person! It's not wrong to have a little sparkle in a man-card! :)

AND....Remember the baby card I made yesterday with the set Hangin' Out? Well, I have another card that I am just DYING to show you!


Banners are super hot right now and I've been just dying to get a banner set! Well guys, Hangin' Out has the banner!! WOOHOOO!!! I gotta say, this is my MOST favorite card I've made for the release. Such a shame too because it took me no time at all to make it! LOL! (Cards usually take me for EVER to make!) OH!! And the background is made with the new large backgrounder Cloudy Background. LOVE IT!!! The sticker came straight from the Garden Party Project Pantry Kit. How simple is that? The patterned paper on my banner came from various pages from the Fly a Kite paper pad available in the store! To add a little more interest to my flags, I topped them with Crystal Effects. Ahh...I just can't stop looking at it! Doesn't it make you long for summer?!

Alrighty, let's check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show. AND...we also have a FABULOUS new guest designer...Sandra MacLean!! I'm so thrilled she is joining us...be sure and stop by her blog to see her beautiful creations with this release!

Thanks soooo very much for stopping by and happy hopping/shopping!! :)

Melissa, Melissa,Oh such wonderful cards. Of course, I love all your cards!

The Dad card is impressive with all the cutting you did, but simply loving that banner card. I happen to love simple, straightforward cards. It seems the card that takes me the least amount of time happen to be my favorites also...
