The Places You'll Go is the next set in the Taylored Expressions Giving Tree series of special stamp sets to support different charities every quarter. For the months of September, October and November when you purchase this set you'll be helping to support the Books for Kids Foundation. Their mission is to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children. Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. For each The Places You'll Go stamp set sold during the quarter, Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to the Books for Kids Foundation.
As a mom of young children, I have loved the opportunity to read to them every night before bedtime. My husband really gets into it and makes all the voices and can really dress up the ABC's, let me tell you! It's that bedtime routine that helped my oldest learn to read with incredible ease in school last year. Giving every child an opportunity to learn to read is so very important and that is why I'm so excited to help promote the Books for Kids Foundation.
When I recieved the coordinating Key Ingredients to this set, I instantly fell in love with all of the elements! Let me tell you what you'll get in this incredible kit:
- 2 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of Prism card stock in each of these fabulous colors: Intense Kiwi, Papaya Puree Dark, Desert Coral Dark, Island Mist Medium, Candleglow Medium and also 2 sheets of Choice Buttercream card stock.
- The patterned paper is My Mind’s Eye - a combination of the Stomp and Round & Round from the new Abbey Road collection.
- 5 yards of coordinating ribbon.
- Matching buttons (lots of them!).
- 1 Maya Road chipboard book.
I used these elements in my card today and I'm using the layout from MOJOMARY. I stamped the rocket ship image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. The ribbon tag is sewed on with Ecru embroidery floss (not included in the kit) through a button. I added Dew Drops (not included in the kit) to the corner of the card. All of the squares are cut out with Nestabilities.
The Baker's Dozen has some fabulous eye candy for you to see today, so hop on over to each blog and see more from The Places You'll Go!
