Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek ~ Pet's Place

Hi there everyone!!  Welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions sneak peeks!  We've got four days of incredible peeks lined up, you won't want to miss a thing! 

Taylored Expressions supports various charities through the TE Giving Tree Program. There is a new stamp set introduced every 3 months to support a new charity. We are proud to bring you Pet's Place, the newest set in the Apple Doodle Ink line, to support The Humane Society of the United States.

The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization. The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will also benefit people. They are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond. HSUS is also the lead disaster relief agency for animals, and they provide direct care for thousands of animals at sanctuaries and rescue facilities, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and mobile veterinary clinics. Read more about HSUS here http://www.humanesociety.org/about/overview/

Pet's Place will be available in the TE Store on Friday morning at 8 am PST. $7 from the sale of each set will be donated to HSUS. Please remember that sets in the Giving Tree Program are the same high quality deeply etched pink rubber on EZ Mount as all other TE stamp sets, however unlike our other sets you will need to trim these images yourself. This allows us to cut production costs and donate more to our charities.



Here's the card I made with this DARLING new set, Pet's Place!  There are so many CUTE images in this set and I finally, after much deliberation, used this image!  The sketch is this week's sketch from Mercy Kerin. MTSC76.  I paired it with the soon to be released AMAZING Pet's Place Project Pantry featuring the Basic Grey Max and Whisker's line!  The Project Pantry Kits give you enough supplies to make 12-20 cards!  Taylor hand picks all of the products that go into the kit to coordinate perfectly.  I love that all of the thinking is done for me!  All I have to do is sit down and create!

The Project Pantry kit includes all of the following for $22.95:
20 sheets 6x6 double-sided patterned paper (Max &Whiskers)
~12 sheets of cardstock (Buttercream neutral)
~5 yards of ribbon
~Dog Bone clips
~Fish/Paw/Bone brads
~Coordinating mix of buttons
~Basic Grey Brads
~Basic Grey 12x12 cardstock sticker sheet
~Clear Rhinestones
~Sparkling Coffee Fluff

You can also purchase the Max and Whiskers Project Pantry Kit along with the new Pet's Place Giving Tree Set for $44.90.  Such a deal.....
