Christmas In July...TE Style!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! I am SOOOOOOO excited to show you something AWESOME today!! Welcome to the Christmas In July Blog Hop from some of the Baker's Dozen (and a guest or two!!)!!

Today we get to show you a FABULOUS new product in the Taylored Expressions Store!! Take a gander at the new rectangle Perfect Packages!!! These boxes ROCK my world!!!

The new Perfect Packages are just that...PERFECT! They a new rectangular size...perfect for cardmakers to present their A2 (standard size) cards in an elegant, professional way!

The boxes come flat for storage, and this also makes them SUPER easy to decorate! They are a heavy, smooth material, and they shut with a magnetic closure! The are delicious all on their own...but then when you decorate them...yummy!!

You can see here how I decorated the front "flap" of my box! It was SO easy and super fun too!!

For my box, I decorated it with some Ski Slope DSP from SU! and I used this SUPER sweet cuppie image from A Year of Sweets 3 from Taylored Expressions. I just love these cuppies...they all make me smile!!
I stamped my cuppie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I colored the entire scene with Copic Markers and then framed it with Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities.
The sentiment, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, is from A Year of Sweet Sentiments (my FAVORITE sentiment set ever!), and I used one of the Ribbon Tags Trio by Spellbinders to frame it! I LOVE the look of that with the Baja Breeze Striped Ribbon from SU!
Now...you can fit quite a few cards and envies in these boxes! You all know how much I LOVE my layers, and I was able to make 10 cards, 5 each of the cards below, and they ALL fit in my Perfect Package along with 10 envelopes!! Score!!

My first card is practically the same as the top of my Perfect Package. On my second set of cards, I used A Year Of Sweets 1 from Taylored Expressions, and once again, my sentiment is from A Year Of Sweet Sentiments!! Once again, I framed my cuppie with Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, and on these, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the "snow" with my Two Way Glue Pen!
Please go and hop around to these super talented stampers and see what they did with this AWESOME new product!
and our special guest Rachel!
