Today marks the first day of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September 2015 release, but more than that…this week we celebrate TE’s 7th birthday! That’s crazy! It seems like just yesterday that Taylor was telling me about her vision for her first stamp sets! TE has come a long way, baby! This release is all the evidence you’l need. I got started stamping and I couldn’t stop! I’ll have samples to share all week. I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun stamping!
Today, my card features a fun new cutting plate and the newest Matched Kit (patterned paper and solid cardstock.)
The Presents Cutting Plate gives you the stack of gifts inside the border. It also comes with the pieces to put behind each gift so you can make them any color you want. The Happy Birthday Banner comes separately and I know I’ll be using it a A LOT! So many possibilities to make quick and fun birthday (AND Christmas) cards with this. Just change up the colors and it works for gals, guys, kids, anyone really!
Dies: Presents Cutting Plate, Happy Birthday Banner
Paper: Hello Happiness Matched Collection
Embellishments:Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles – Lily White
Thanks so much for stopping by! There are a ton of new products being introduced today, so I know you’ll want to hop over to the TE Blog to get all the new product info and to get links to the Creative Team playing in the hop today!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty time over at Splitcoaststampers! If you’re not familiar with this, it’s a week of fun challenges for Fan Club Members hosted by the Dirty Dozen Design Team and Dirty Dozen Alums. Lots of people set aside the entire week to play, play, and play some more! If you’re not already a Fan Club member, it’s easy to sign up. Today I have a sample for my sweet friend, Lori Craig’s challenge. I can hardly believe it has been 9 years since I had the privilege of being on the DD design team. I don’t get over to SCS very much anymore, but it was once a huge part of my daily life and I made so many friends throughout those years. When Lori asked me to make a sample, I had to say YES!
I had actually colored this image a couple of months ago when we were on vacation in our 5th wheel up in Morro Bay and it had been sitting on my stamp table ever since. I knew right away that it would fit with Lori’s challenge. You’ll have to head over to SCS to get the challenge details and play along though!
Of course I got all the supplies at Taylored Expressions. The stamp image is from the set In Other Words – Tea. I doodled the border and hand-wrote the sentiment as well as added a little bit of doodling to embellish some of the images.
A huge thanks to Lori for making sure I got involved! Love you, Girl!
And thanks to all of you for stopping by today. I haven’t been stamping as much as I would like and I’ve been blogging even less. Maybe I’ll get back into a more regular swing of sometime, but for now I’ll just be happy to check in whenever I can!
