Happy Tuesday! Today marks the first day of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions October Release. October is always my favorite release of the year because it’s when we do Christmas! Today I’m playing along to showcase a fun new Christmas stamp set as well as a set of dies that are super duper cute! Be sure to hop around (link list below), because the Baker’s Dozen has a ton more new products to show you!
My first project is a card featuring the new stamp set Christmas Doodles illustrated by Nancy McKinney. This continues the theme from previous Doodles sets (Valentines, Easter, Halloween and the original Doodle Notes.) There are a bunch of super cute images in this set. For some reason I immediately gravitated to this long curly doodles image to use a branch for the ornaments. I kept this card super simple and just added some fun bling. Here’s the inside.
My second project is a set of tags featuring a new Taylored Dies set – Christmas Treat Toppers. After seeing all the adorable things the team did with the Birthday Treat Toppers last month, I just had to get my hands on the Christmas version. These will be perfect for all types of treats as well and as cards, and as you can see from my project – tags!
I used TE Label Stacklets 3 dies for the base of my tags and added some cute Doodlebug papers and the Christmas Treat Toppers. I used a 1 3/4″ punch for the layer right behind the tag – it’s a perfect fit. I had so much fun playing with these tags. I added a little stickles and liquid pearls to some of them for an extra special touch.
I think these would make a great early holiday gift or maybe a hostess gift. I might just need to play with some packaging ideas now. I can hardly wait to see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up for today. Let’s go hopping!
