Hey everyone!! Welcome to Day 1 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions May release! I am especially excited to sneak for you two new sets created for the FIRST TIME by our very own Taylor VanBruggen!!!! She has created the most adorable sets and I'm like having ants in my pants anxious to show you!! The new sets are Garden Party Blooms, Garden Party Critters, and a 5.75 x 5.75 big background Cloudy Days!
So without further gabbing, here's my first project to show you.
This card features all the items from the NEW Garden Party Project Pantry kit! Remember the Key Ingredients? Well, they are still there (available only by subscription), and this is the PURCHASABLE kit with each new release! This kit features:
• 12 sheets of cardstock (10 colored, 2 Choice neutral)
• 20 sheets of 6x6 double-sided patterned paper from the We R Memory Keepers 72 and Sunny collection
• 5 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles)
• 1 jar of Easy Green loose glitter
• 1 sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers
• 4 coordinating charms (1 each daisy, ladybug, butterfly, and bee)
And it can be purchased with or without the stamps at the deal of $22.95... OR, you can get it all (the kit and both stamp sets) for the 10% reduced price of $59.95!
That cute little turtle and more of the paper is from the kit as well. And check out the rick rac stamp at the top...YES!! I love rick rac and it's definitely a hot trend right now. :)
And finally....my last project...and this is one that I just L-O-V-E!!!
The girl...yeah, she's not the project (because she was completed about 2.5 years ago, LOL!) The apron is completely created using BOTH Garden Party Blooms AND Critters!!! Can you believe a simple little $4.99 children's apron could be so cute?! :)
And would you believe this entire apron is completely washable?! You know my little model up there isn't going to keep it clean. :) All images were stamped with Palette inks and any images that were line art (like the butterfly, clouds, and caterpillar) were colored in with Copics! I used my Slice to cut out fabric letters that spelled out "Catie's Art." What do you think?! I just think this set is sooo adorable and now Taylor's latest creation is wearable art. :)
Now, let's move on to the rest of the Baker's Dozen and see what they've cooked up for ya! :)
