Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2!


Hey everyone!! I'm so glad you have come back again today! Did you enjoy the sneaks from yesterday? It was a lot of fun seeing what the rest of the talented ladies came up...I just have to pinch myself that I get to play along with them!

So anyway, we are on to Day 2 of the sneaks and today is dedicated to the Belated Birthday a La Cartes! There are SEVEN of these adorable mini sets available and most of us are sneaking a different one, so you'll DEFINITELY want to check out what the rest of the Bakers have in store for you!

As for me, I was a lucky duck (total pun intended here) and get to show you the a La Carte set, Ducks in a Row.


Oh my gosh isn't it A-DORABLE?!?! Now, I don't know about you, but I am ALWAYS late sending birthday cards...ok, if I even send them at all, LOL! Ok, totally not funny, but I'm working on being more prompt! Either way, I've always NEEDED a belated set and this totally fits the bill (PUN AGAIN!) LOL!


Yes, I think that sentiment was created specifically for me! One of these days I'll have it all together! :)
And I'm so excited to share that the genius who concepted all of these belated a la cartes is none other than our very own JAMI SIBLEY!!! Now, I don't know if you know Jami, but this lady is just brilliant with brainstorming ideas for things, so it's no surprise that she came up with these cute little critters and all of their adorable sentiments to match. Always so awe-inspiring to me!

So the patterned paper I used here came from the Thrift Shop paper pack, but I'm not sure if you noticed, there are a couple of patterns that are NOT from the paper pack! I actually created them using the other NEW set, Borderliscious! The "make a wish happy birthday celebrate" was embossed in white on cardstock using the new set as was the argyle border stamped on a strip of white cardstock. Totally cool, if I say so myself! I also had to use that new Eyelet border die. :)

Now it's time to get "quacking" and see what everyone else has cooked up for you today! See you tomorrow for Day 3 of sneaks (*hint* think Halloween), WOOHOOO!!!
