Taylored Expressions December Sneaks - Day 1

Good morning and welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for our December Release!

We're celebrating this month with a Petite-a-Palooza as we introduce A DOZEN new Petite stamp sets from every stamp collection available at TE!

If you paid attention to the release points above then you already know that today is calendar day! Each of the Baker's Dozen is featuring one of our new Petite stamp sets along with a calendar product. Today we're sharing new stamps from the Whimsical Wishes & Moka Collections illustrated by Nancy McKinney. The first project I want to share uses our new Desktop Calendar Set:

Our Desktop Calendar Set comes with both the calendar case and the monthly calendar inserts ready for you to personalize with your choice of stamps! We're filling in our Seasonal Wreath series with 3 new wreath stamps this release so now you'll have a full-year of wreaths to fill a calendar. I decided to use all of the wreaths to create 12 unique calendar inserts:

Here are the wreaths that I used for each month:

January: Snowflake Wreath (NEW)
February: Wreath of Love
March: Wreath of Luck
April: Spring Wreath
May: Strawberry Wreath (NEW)
June: Summer Wreath
July: 4th of July Wreath
August: Sunflower Wreath
September: Apple Wreath (NEW)
October: Spooky Wreath
November: Autumn Wreath
December: Wreaths of Joy

The second project I have to share uses our new Mini Tear-Off Calendar and magnetic acrylic base. I've always wanted to have these cute mini calendars without having to download and print them and now we're bringing that to reality! Each little cutie measures 2 1/4" x 3" and the possibilities are endless. I decided to start January off with the sweet new Moka Kristie!

But wait, there's more! This next calendar product is even more exciting because it helps keep me organized (which I need a lot of help with these days!). This is the Perpetual Occasions Calendar! Decorate it once and use it for a lifetime to help you keep track of birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. Just decorate the small insert that separates each month and hang the calendar on the wall. Wouldn't these make a great gift too!?

I decided to do a different Bible verse for each month so not only will it remind me of upcoming birthdays, but it will be a constant reminder of some of my favorite Scripture. January features a verse from the Rest & Renewal stamp set and February features a new Petite set that we're introducing during this release... I'll be sharing more about that tomorrow!

And last, but certainly not least, is a long-time customer favorite...our 6x6 calendar download and Frame Your Imagination Stand. While this isn't a new product, some of the Baker's Dozen will be sharing new and inspiring ideas for creating a fabulous calendar using this stand. Here's a project that I made last year and you can find all of the months of my calendar HERE:

Whew... that was a long post, but I hope you see some new ideas that inspire you to start creating for the new year! The rest of the Baker's Dozen also has some fabulous sneak peeks to share with you today so check 'em out:
