Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 1

Hello!  It's release week over at Taylored Expressions and we've got so much to show you that we added an extra day of peeks!  I can't even tell you how thrilled I am with today's set - it's SO cute and I couldn't put it down last night.  Today the Baker's Dozen is showcasing Make a Wish, Borderlicious, and Bubble Big Background all designed by the fabulous Nancy McKinney and will be available for purchase Friday, September 3rd at 8 AM Pacific - let the countdown begin!

Make a Wish is the newest Giving Tree set and during the months of September, October, and November, TE will donate $7.00 to a national children's charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.  This set does not come pre-cut, so you will need to trim the stamps when it arrives.  The reason Taylored Expressions does not die cut the Giving Tree sets is so we can keep the overall cost of the set at a minium in order to give more to various charities.  So, not only are you getting a fabulous stamp set, you are also giving back too!  I chose to use the topsy-turvy layered cake along with balloons on my card today and did you notice the balloon die cuts?  TE is releasing more Taylored Dies this month, and Make a Wish has coordinating balloon dies that make cutting out those shapes super fast and easy.  This set is loaded with fabulous birthday sentiments and images that will be perfect for any birthday - girl, boy, young, old, as well as those in denial about getting older, haha! 

Also available this month is the Make a Wish Project Pantry Project Kit, which has the most amazing patterned papers, ribbon, baker's twine, AND get this....  Espresso Dimensional Pearls!!!  You know you have wanted to get your hands on that amazing chocolate frosting in bottle, right?  Here is a little look-see at said frosting...

Ooohhhh, so delish! I also used the new set, Borderlicious, to create that really fun stitching border around the edge of my card.  Since I don't have a sewing machine, I LOVE this border!  There is also a Make a Wish Copic set, which I've used in my card here.  Love the colors!  The layout is Mercy's MTSC88.

Thanks for hanging in there with me - there is just so much to see and show you this week, you won't be disappointed in the least!  Hop on over to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have created for you this morning...
See you back tomorrow for another fantastic sneak peek!
