Taylored Expressions Release Party!

Welcome to the Taylored Expressions release party!!  Be sure to read this entire post because you have a chance to win something scrumptious!!  Today marks a very special anniversary - one year ago today, the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps was first released in the TE store.  To celebrate, Nancy McKinney has designed four fabulous digi-stamps called Whimsical Wishes Through the Year - one digi-stamp for each season.  I'm thrilled to show you the summer butterfly - isn't she marvelous?!  I printed her out on a piece of Spring Fling paper and again on Choice Snow White cardstock and layered the pink butterfly on top.  The flowers on the butterfly are colored in with a white gel pen and I added more of those lovely hot pink rhinestones from the Spring Sampler.  The layered panels are cut out with my Curved Rectangles Nestabilities - you should see all the Nesties currently available in the store, even those cute little eggs!!

To celebrate, Taylored Expressions is giving away these wonderful digi-stamps!!!  With any purchase in the TE Store through Monday March 8th you'll receive a FREE Whimsical Wishes Image Sheet - Whimsical Wishes Throughout the Year that includes 4 never-before-seen seasonal images and 4 coordinating sentiments. These are open line images ready for you to color with your favorite medium.

Anniversary Sale - the first two sets released in the Whimsical Wishes family last year were Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates. Each of these 2 sets are on sale for 25% off only through Monday March 8th. Note: since these two sets were originally part if our Giving Tree charitable program they come in sheet form attached to EZ Mount. You will need to trim them out when you receive them.

New in the store today are:  You're My Hero, Favorite Peeps, Easter Blessings, Easter Key Ingredients, Rock Star Key Ingredients, and the Spring Sampler.

Also, Taylor has hand-picked 2 Copic sets that match each Key Ingredients -  

Collecting Copic markers this way help keep the guess work out of choosing which markers to start with.
