Taylored Expressions Release Day!!

Good Morning everyone!  It's finally release day at Taylored Expressions!  All of the sets you've seen plus the sets you'll see today are all available right now at the Taylored Expressions store!

Today we are showing you Father's Day A La Carte which consists of two image/sentiment combinations from the Apple Doodle Ink Line!  I also have another project made with the new sets designed by Taylor, Garden Party Blooms and Garden Party Critters!  So why don't we get started!


This card uses the one of the new Father's Day A la Carte images, Real Classic.  I actually made this card for my BIL who celebrated his birthday on May 5th.  This A la Carte set comes with two sentiments.  I only used the one seen on the card and then used a Happy Birthday sentiment from another TE set on the inside.  All of the DP and cardstock are from the Garden Party Pantry Kit.  The twill is from my stash as is the button.  The car was stamped in Memento Black ink and colored in with Copics.  It was cut out with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities.  I love making cards for my hubby's family because they all appreciate the work that I put into them and they display them for a LONG time!  

 





My next project is this cute little 3x3 box!  It will house my girlfriend's birthday gift (a gift card) with a couple little candies!  I love making these boxes because they are so easy, but they really pack a punch!  I used the new TE sets Garden Party Blooms (flowers) and Garden Party Critters (sentiment) and just LOVE how this turned out!  The dp is a mix of the new October Afternoon Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite.  The flowers were die cut with the same dp with the smaller flowers popped up for dimension.  I will be making a card to match this, so be looking for that soon!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen and their awesome projects!


Thank you for stopping by!

Love your gingham-patterned top on the box! All the little flowers compliment the design perfectly too! That red car reminds me of a really old Milky Way advert, lol!

Fabulous! The box is just darling. It's more than just a box holding a gift, it's a gift by itself. The card is gorgeous in a more manly sort of way. lol
