Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Begin with Love Everywhere!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the AWESOME new releases from Taylored Expressions!!

The Bakers Dozen are sharing peeks today of a FABULOUS new set called Love Everywhere!! I had a blast playing with this set, and as you can see, I couldn't stop!!

ALL of my creations today were made using the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients, which are being released, along with all the new sets, on Thursday, January 7!!

Can you see the patterned paper on my cards? Yes, that's right...Be Loved by My Minds Eye takes center stage for this awesome Key Ingredients!! Does it get any better? The hottest paper out there with the cardstock, ribbon and embellies to match??? Heaven!

For my first card, I began by staming the tree in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock (the Choice Buttercream is included in the Valentine's Day KI!!) and I then stamped the hearts in Memento Lady Bug. I stamped the hearts again on a separate pice of paper, cut them out and then popped them up on foam tape! The layout is an old SCS sketch from a few months ago, and I stamped the sentiment, "Happy Heart Day" in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto the patterned paper. I finished this off with a double ribbon and darling heart stick pin, all of which are also included in the Valentine's Day KI!



For my second card, I stamped this darling hot air balloon in Memento Rich Cocoa and Memento Lady Bug onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and then cut it out with Classic Oval Nestabilities. Can you see the AWESOME frame around my image? These are, in my opinion, the latest and greatest product in the stamping world and I have a feeling that they are going to explode!! They are called Frameabellies and they are created by my friend Jamie Pyles and will now be available through Taylored Expressions! I am just THRILLED about these and I know you will love them too!!

To match my card, I wanted to try my hand at a little Valentine's Day treat!

I created this darling little Matchbox Candy Holder and I followed the super easy tutorial on SCS HERE.

This was SUPER simple to make and will be quite easy to mass produce as well. I plan on making these for Meredith to pass out to her classmates on Valentine's Day!!

I just love the images in this set and you can see how easy they lend themselves to sweet little Valentines!
