Happy June everyone!! Can you believe that we are half-way through the year??! Not only that, it's my favorite time of the month...sneaking new Taylored Expressions sets for the big release this Friday! Taylor has another big release for you this month, so you get a special treat of...count 'em, FOUR days of sneaks!! Let's get started, shall we? I have a lot to share over the course of the next few days. :)
The first set the Baker's Dozen is peeking for you today is called Pet's Place! I was just thrilled to see this set as I am such a HUGE animal lover! Yep, you can park me in front of the Animal Planet channel and I'm happy as a pig in mud. :) Except the sad stories...then I just sob uncontrollably. But anyway! We were lucky to add to our family, a special little someone, who was only 8 weeks old when we brought him home in February...
....meet...DUG!! Yep, Dug as in the cute Labrador from the Pixar film, "Up." This was taken on the long trip home from the breeder's home. He's a bit big to be a lap dog now, but HE still thinks he's a lap dog, LOL! :)
And another reason why I love this set....
...is that it is a part of the TE Giving Tree Program!!! A portion of sales from this set will go directly to the Humane Society of the United States. I LOVE THAT!! Here is some verbage on the TE Giving Tree Program for those unfamiliar. :)
Taylored Expressions supports various charities through the TE Giving Tree Program. There is a new stamp set introduced every 3 months to support a new charity. We are proud (or excited or happy) to bring you Pet's Place, the newest set in the Apple Doodle Ink line, to support The Humane Society of the United States. The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization. The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will also benefit people. They are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond. HSUS is also the lead disaster relief agency for animals, and they provide direct care for thousands of animals at sanctuaries and rescue facilities, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and mobile veterinary clinics. Read more about HSUS here http://www.humanesociety.org/about/overview/ Pet's Place will be available in the TE Store on Friday morning at 8 am PST. $7 from the sale of each set will be donated to HSUS. Please remember that sets in the Giving Tree Program are the same high quality deeply etched pink rubber on EZ Mount as all other TE stamp sets, however unlike our other setsyou will need to trim these images yourself. This allows us to cut production costs and donate more to our charities.
Neat, huh?! I always love the Giving Tree sets...always such GREAT causes...and who could resist my little Dug's face up there?! So many friends of his out there need our help!
And so...about my projects I've shared! Well first, you probably noticed a trend in patterned paper and accessories, etc, right? They're all matchy, matchy...and this is because I used all the papers and accessories from the Pet's Place Project Pantry Kit!! Yep, this set has a super cute Pantry Kit to go with it featuring Basic Grey's Max & Whisker's patterned paper. Tooo stinkin' cute and just a perfect match with this set.
And how about those doggie treats? (The treat bag is sold separately from the Pet's Place Project Pantry Kit) A little something for a friend of yours getting a brand new little "someone" in their life? I sure would have loved that!! You know us animal lovers love our pets like family (sometimes more at times), LOL!
And I couldn't neglect all the cat lover's out there...I know you're out there, and I KNOW that sentiment TOTALLY applies to you, HAH!! Ok, I'm still laughing about that because it's so true! Oooh, and check out my paw print punch!! I got it new in the TE store, HERE! Another item that goes PERFECT with the set. :)
Back to the Pet's Place Project Pantry kit...I just have to mention how it is a steal and can be purchased WITH the Pet's Place stamp set at only $44.90 OR alone at $22.95. And the kit is just more than cardstocks, papers, and ribbons. Taylor packs them up NICE! This kit comes with all these adorable paw print and bone brads and clips, sparkly fluff, rhinestones, AND sticker sheet! Definitely enough to make close to 20 cards, or even use some of those stickers and embellishments to make a scrapbook page. Oh, YES, you will be seeing something using all this in a page in the near future. :)
So what do you think?? Well, while you're thinking on it, be sure and check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen's fabulous creations with it! They sure don't disappoint!
