Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

Howdy everyone! I am sooooo thrilled to be with you here today on the first official day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions September release!!! This release is a big one and, if I may be so bold to say, my most favorite one to date! And if you saw Taylor's post yesterday, you noticed we have some new faces to the team...YAY!! Although I am very sad to see Alex, Carolina, and Jeanie go, I am also very excited to be teamed up with Danielle, Regina, and Tori!

So, lets get this party started, shall we??!

Today, the Baker's Dozen and some very SPECIAL guests are together giving you some sneaks of TWO new stamp sets, Make a Wish and Borderlicious, the Bubbles Background, coordinating Balloon and Border dies, AND the Make a Wish Project Pantry. WHEW! That was a mouthful! And if that wasn't enough for you to take in, the Make a Wish set is also the new Giving Tree stamp set of the quarter! Absolutely all of these lovelies were illustrated by our super-fabulous illustrator, Nancy McKinney!!!! I am sooo excited for all of these new sets and dies and I just know the new Giving Tree set will be my latest and greatest "go-to" sets!

How about we show some pretty pictures while I chat with you, yes?? :)


Oh my goodness I just ADORE this cake!! I love how whimsical and fun it is and that it completely lends itself to getting all glitzed up. :) And notice those felt balloons? Yep, those are new balloon dies!! They coordinate PERFECTLY with this stamp set and will definitely be a must have in your crafting arsenal! Now, I didn't show you how the dies coordinate with the balloon stamps, but I DID use some of the new felt just for fun and texture. I know!! I love it too!


Everything that I have used on the card came straight from the coordinating Make a Wish Project Pantry...the papers, ribbon, twine, AND yummy Espresso Dimensional Pearls! Now, since this set is a giving tree set it will come on a rubber sheet (and need to be trimmed before use), as this saves on the manufacturing costs and allows Taylor to be able to donate more to the charity!


With the purchase of this set, not only will you be getting a super adorable and versatile birthday stamp set, you will also be giving to such a profound organization. Need I really say more?! :)


So what do you think so far? I am just IN LOVE!! How about we hop along and see what everyone else has in store for you?? I know they will ALL be just lovely!!


Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you back here for even MORE fun sneaks leading up to the big release (and available to be purchased) on Friday, September 3rd!
