Hello everyone!!! So happy that you are here today for the beginning of sneaks for the February release of stamps and accessories at Taylored Expressions! Just a reminder that everything I will be sneaking for the next few days will be available for purchase beginning Friday, February 4th at 8 AM PST....so sit back, relax, and enjoy the sneaks we have to share with you until then!
Today is a special day of sneaks as all of the Baker's Dozen are sneaking the newest Giving Tree stamp set, which is a special sets who's portion of sales go to various charities. I love that Taylor does this every quarter, and she always chooses such wonderful charities to support each time! This one is certainly no different!
So I sneak for you the latest Giving Tree set... COZY COTTAGES!
I have been in DIRE need of home/neighborhood stamps and I'm sooo happy these came along! The houses are cute and some are even along the fairytale-ish line. :) This special set was illustrated by our own Nancy McKinney to join in her Whimsical Wishes line and I know that we all just adore it!
Another special little surprise here are that there are THREE new dies that coordinate beautifully with this set! Now, I've only used one of the dies on my card (look for a project later this week to incorporate more) :) I'm betting you will be able to guess which one!
Now, for the months of February, March, and April, Taylored Expressions will donate $7 to Habitat for Humanity with the sale of each Cozy Cottage stamp set!!! How awesome is that? Habitat for Humanity, through the help of Churches, community groups, and volunteers, have successfully tackled the issues of poverty housing - having built over 350,000 homes and sheltering over 1.75 million people over 3,000 communities worldwide. They are absolutely amazing and I am positively thrilled that the sales of this set will benefit them!
Those of you who are accustomed to Taylored Expressions sets are already familiar with the pre-cut high quality rubber that the stamps are received as. These Giving Tree sets are still made from high quality, deep etched rubber, however they will need to be trimmed as they come in sheet form.
And there's another special treat for you today that I am excited to share! Remember the Tiny Chefs from last month?? They're baaaaaaaaack!!! :) This month, Taylored Expressions is releasing a special COLORING BOOK filled with the adorable images from the Cozy Cottage set!
Catie was sooooo thrilled to be a spotlighted Tiny Chef of the household this month and couldn't wait to be photographed with her newest coloring book!
She couldn't WAIT to color in it too...mommy was taking too long getting the camera ready (and table cleaned off) as she wanted to color in it the second it was taken from the mailbox!
And, of course, the first page to be colored HAD to be the cupcake house!! Think this girl likes to color much from those collection of crayons? (Yes, that 3 year old keeps them THAT neat and orderly!!!)
And we can't have a photo without the tongue hanging half out. She's going to love seeing this one when she gets older...LOL!!
The coloring book sells for $2.99, and your little Tiny Chef won't be disappointed!
Now, let's check out what the rest of the Baker's + Nancy have to share with you with this set. Can't wait to see as I KNOW they will create something super fabulous!!
Thanks for your visit and hope to see you back here tomorrow for even more peeks!!
