Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 3



Hey everyone and welcome back to Day 3 of the sneaks...leading up to the big release just tomorrow morning! Are you getting excited to see more sets and to shop tomorrow morning. Valentine's will be here before you know it...you saw how 2011 just flew by, right?! So today we are sneaking 2 new full sized sets as well as 3 more a la Cartes. Let's start with an a la Carte, shall we? :) Last year TE released Animals in Love a la Cartes, and since they were such a big hit, TE is releasing 3 more today! I get to share one of the oldies but goodies, Fishes in Love. :) You may remember this project I did with them last year.

Ack! It's still so cute this year!!  The newest a la Cartes are, once again, illustrated by the super fabulous Nancy McKinney for her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps.  Would you like this a la Carte for FREE??  Make sure to stop by Taylor's blog for the details on that, and also make sure to hop around so you can get a peek at the ADORABLE new additions!

Now, I love having the kiddos work on their own Valentine's...just like I did last year.  And boy did they LOVE working on their Valentine's this year!  They played with one of the newest full sized sets, Love Monsters.



They worked diligently on their masterpieces...and as a matter of fact, my daughter Catie has created about 10 more since then, lol!  She LOVED doing this project!


Masterpieces, right?!?!  I just think that these monsters are the cutest things and I love, love LOVE the sentiments!  CUTEST EVER!!  These adorable little boy and girl monsters were illustrated by Emily Burger for her Embracing Grace line of stamp sets.  There are 19 images/sentiments here and they are perfect for the young and/or young at heart!  But I have to share just one more that Catie was especially proud of.....


Meet...NINJA MONSTER!!  Catie was so proud to have colored her monster in special NINJA outfit...I laughed so hard!!  That's my girl...thinking outside the box at 4!  I totally would have never looked at her that way. ;)

So there was a lot to share today and I hope you enjoyed what you saw!  Please hop around the Bakers blogs to see more!

Love your kids' valentines - seriously, how sweet are they?!! I think your ribbon weaving through the eyelets around the edges of the fishie card is spectacular! Reminds me of a real porthole or the window on a cruise ship. Very pretty!
