Hello again friends!!  Happy beginning of April!  Can you believe that there are only 8 weeks left and then it's summer??  Geez, where has the time gone?!  Well, I always look forward to the beginning of a new month, cause that's when the Taylored Expression's sneak peeks begin!  I just love this release...filled with stamps for the fun and quirky, to the downright elegant. Just the perfect mix!!  Speaking of, let's start with fun, shall we?? :)


All of us are sharing two projects today...one of which features this super adorable set of Fruity Friends! Oh goodness, I just can't stand how cute these fruits are!  I couldn't go with just one of the images from the set, so I went with a few. :)  This set features 20 images/sentiments and was concepted by our very own, Wanda Guess!  With Emily Burger illustrating for her Embracing Grace line of stamps, it just couldn't go wrong!  This is a full sized set of pre-cut RUBBER stamps already mounted to EZ Mount and ready to stamp with on your acrylic blocks.  Don't forget, for those who enjoy organization, they also fit perfectly in the Mini Binder Boxes.  Cute right?!  I can't wait to see what you guys will do with these cute images and punny sentiments.

And for my second project for today....totally switching gears...


...a beautiful set of botanicals and butterflies entitled, Make it Amazing.  Now, this set has THREE coordinating dies...and I love them all!!  Only used one of them here, but I just LOVE how the die matches the gorgeous butterfly.  I really hate fussy-cutting around antenna!  It's usually pretty inevitable that I just end up chopping them off anyway and my butterflies go antennae-less, LOL!  Not anymore!!
This set features 19 beautiful images/sentiments and was illustrated by our fabulous illustrator, Nancy McKinney for her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps.  Just beautiful, am I right?! Also, gorgeous papers and ribbon, yes??  That's from the new London Market Project Pantry....I will be showing you more of it later this week!
I actually loved the layout that I used for my first card, so I thought it would be neat to use a very similar layout for this card.  Two totally different styles of card, but same format, easy peasy!

So has your appetite for more been whetted? :)  Well, be sure and visit the many more projects being offered up for your viewing pleasure!  And I hope to see you right back here tomorrow...and leading up to the big release on Thursday!
