Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month!


Hello!  I'm back with another card that I made with this month's Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month stamp set called Made With Love! I also used the coordinating die set called Stitched With Love!

I am having so much fun with this stamp and die set! For my card today I used the Deconstructed Sketch #146 (LOVE Jen's sketches!!!) along with some Doodlebug Sugar Shop dp.  I cut the fishtails with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die and cut the buttons out of some chipboard and then some dp which I adhered to the top. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. 


That's it for me!  We are going to paint our bedroom today (again!)  I just got some new bedding which of course calls for new colors:)  My hubby is thrilled LOL!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!


Hello!  It's time for the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! I LOVE this month's adorable stamp set called Made With Love and the coordinating die set called Stitched With Love!  So fun!  I am also loving the colors in this month's Key Ingredients Kit which contains dp from the Carta Bella Sew Lovely Collection.

For my card today, I used the Stitched With Love die set to cut out this gorgeous sewing machine.  I stamped the spool of thread and cut it out so I could pop it up with Foam Tape.  The Sew Lovely sentiment and the stitching were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I used Copics for coloring. I had to add some stitching and I also used the Lace Chain Border Die to cut the pretty border.  The layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #145



The rest of the Baker's Dozen and Key Ingredients DT have inspirational projects to share with you today, so make sure you hop along and check them out!  I can't wait to see what they came up with:)
Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Tuesday!

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: A Life She Loved and Sunshiny Day


Hello!  It's Day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions and all of the new products will be available tomorrow!

First I have a home decor project to share with you:)  I made this for my craft room and I just love it!  Taylor has gotten several new frames and other home decor items in the store.  I used the Kaisercraft Beyond the Page Photo Display-9 Frame. I painted the frame white and then added the pictures of my kiddos to the 3 larger frames.  I cut pieces of Basic Grey RSVP dp to fill the other frames and added some images and sentiments from the new A Life She Loved stamp set.



I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The butterfly was cut with the Flutter-bys Die Set.


The "love" sentiment was cut with the Pockets and Pages February Script Die Set and I layered it over a paint stroke that I stamped with the new Stroke of Genius stamp set.


My next card uses the new Sunshiny Day stamp set along with the new Label Stacklets 8 Dies.


I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and this time I tried out my new Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir Markers!  These markers are fabulous and make coloring so much fun!  I love the way the colors blend and they have several colors that I don't currently have with my Copics:)

When I saw the images in Sunshiny Day I squealed with excitement!  These images are sooooo CUTE and right up my alley:)  I cut them out and popped them up with Foam Tape over a frame that I cut with the new Label Stacklets 8 Dies.  The sentiment was cut out with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die. I used the Deconstructed Sketch #143 for my layout and some Basic Grey RSVP dp once again.


Check out more peeks from the rest of the Baker's Dozen!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with one final project for release day!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
