Taylored Expressions December Sneaks - Day 2


Good morning! It's time for our second day of sneak peeks before all of our new products are available tomorrow morning at 8am PST! I hope you enjoyed the calendars yesterday and today the Baker's Dozen and I are bringing you inspiration using 4 new cards kits along with our sneak peeks from the 12 new Petite stamp sets. Here's what you'll want to know for this release:

December Release At a Glance
  • Tuesday is Calendar Day as we showcase FOUR new TE calendar products - all perfect for gift giving!
  • Wednesday is Card Kit Day as we introduce FOUR new Taylored Card Kits available just in time for the holidays!
  • All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, December 1st at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
  • Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.
  • PETITE-A-PALOOZA SPECIALPurchase any 6 Petite Stamp Sets (new or old) through Friday December 9th and receive a Petite Storage Case absolutely FREE!
I thought I'd start today by showing you a picture of all four of our new card kits:


Each card kit features one of the following patterned papers (from top left to bottom right): My Mind's Eye Happier, Basic Grey Indie Bloom, October Afternoon Sidewalks, Echo Park Times & Seasons. We've paired the patterned paper with 10 card bases, 10 image panels, 10 envelopes, 3 yards of ribbon, and a package of Kaisercraft Pearls/Rhinestones. Each card kit is packaged up with a full color supply list and inspiration sheet in one of our new Petite Storage Boxes! Yep... you read that right! We're now offering a storage solution that's perfect for keeping your Petite stamp sets in order. Each storage box holds 6 Petite stamp sets:


If you read the December Release at a Glance then you know about our Petite-a-Palooza special! For every 6 Petite stamp sets you purchase, you'll receive a FREE Petite Storage Box! YAY!

My first project uses the Indie Bloom Card Kit along with the new Fly Your Flag 1 stamp set! Each Fly Your Flag stamp set offers a uniquely shaped flag with a coordinating die. All you need to do is stamp the image, trim with the coordinating die, fold the flag in half, and string along a piece of ribbon or Baker's Twine! Each flag image is double sided allowing you do decide if you'd like to spell out a word in the opening or just string a plain flag. The Fly Your Flag stamp sets coordinate with the previously release You're My Type Upper and Lower alphabet sets. Let me show you just what I mean. Here's a photo of the Fly Your Flag 1 stamp set and coordinating die:

The die trims out the entire flag shape and you can either cut them in half and pop up your pennants on foam tape or fold them in half and string them along a piece of ribbon or twine. Or maybe you'll find a new and clever use for the diamond die shape on its own! I'm super excited for all the possibilities with this series of stamp sets!


My next project uses the Happier Card Kit and the new Simply Magical Petite Set. It just doesn't get better than Cuppie and Unicorn! Wouldn't this make a sweet set of cards for a young girl? I also used the Medium Scalloped Border die and an Ice White Pearl Pen on each scallop for more detail. And the clouds are covered with glitter for even more sparkle and shine (just like the sentiment says!). :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Our fabulous Baker's Dozen is sharing sneak peeks using the card kits and even more new stamps. You don't want to miss Polar Pete, Sky's the Limit, and more Fly Your Flag so make sure you hop along to check 'em out:

Taylored Expressions December Sneaks - Day 1


Good morning and welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for our December Release! I can't believe how quickly the months have been flying by, but I've been so excited to show you the new products in our December release that you won't hear me complaining! 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! In addition, we're introducing a Petite Storage Box, 4 new calendar products, and 4 new card kits. This release has everything you need for gift making and gift giving in the upcoming year!

If you want to be 'in the know' for this release, then keep on reading!

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:
