Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Begin!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks of the AH-mazing new Taylored Expressions release! I am SO excited about today!!!

We have TWO awesome new product lines to share with you today, and I just know you will LOVE them as much as I do!! Taylor has been a stamping hero of mine for ages, and I am SO excited to announce a BRAND new line of stamps available at Taylored Expressions, TE, designed and illustrated by Taylor herself!! The two sets we are peaking today are the first two sets in this brand new line!!!

For my first card today, I used the SUPER cute Garden Party Critters! This set has OODLES of darling images...I can't wait for you to see the entire set! For my card, I started by stamping the beehive in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I also stamped four of the bumble bees, colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out.

The layout is one of Jen's SFYTT sketches, and get a look at the GORGEOUS papers I used...I am SO excited to be able to share ANOTHER new line at Taylored Expressions, Project Pantry!

The Project Pantry line are kits that are a variation of our ever popular Key Ingredients. They include all of the ingredients you need to create darling cards that are perfectly matched with Taylored Expressions stamps! We will be releasing the Project Pantry each release and you can purchase it separately, or in a bundle with stamp sets!

The Garden Party Project Pantry includes the following:
• 12 sheets of cardstock (10 colored, 2 Choice neutral)• 20 sheets of 6x6 double-sided patterned paper from the We R Memory Keepers 72 and Sunny collection• 5 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles)• 1 jar of Easy Green loose glitter• 1 sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers• 4 coordinating charms (1 each daisy, ladybug, butterfly, and bee)

For my second card today, I used the other new set in the DARLING new te line, Garden Party! This set has the perfect mix of both solid and line art images, and the sentiments are just SO sweet too!!!

Once again, I used one of Jen's SFYTT sketches for my card, and ALL the cardstock and ribbon is from the Garden Party Project Pantry. Do you see the cloud panel behind the sun? Well my friends, that is NOT patterned paper!! That is an AMAZING new Big Background Stamp designed by Taylor, Cloudy Days! SOOOOO fun!!!

I added some Stickles to the center of my sun to make it pop, and the sentiment, "sending you sunshine" was stamped directly onto the patterned paper. This stamp set, along with Garden Party Critters and Cloudy Days Background Stamp, are sure to bring a smile to your face and to the face of the recipients of your creations!

For my last project today, I wanted to show you this ADORABLE little flower box favor box that will also be available at Taylored Expressions on Friday, May 7!! These will be sold in packs of 10 and contain the same colors as the cardstock in the Garden Party Project Pantry kit!!!

This literally took about 3 minutes to stamp and put together! I took the smallest solid flower stamp from Garden Party and stamped the base and the flower of the favor box. I stamped the sentiment, "Thanks of bunch", also from Garden Party, created a little tag, and adhered it to the favor box with Foam Tape!

How CUTE would these be for a shower, summer party, kids party, etc. LOVE them!!
