Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 3.....


It's day three of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and there is A LOT to tell you about today!  The Baker's Dozen is peeking three new sets today plus a new Kid's Valentine Card Kit!!  I have many pictures, so I'll get right to it!


First off is a DARLING new set called Kid at Heart.  This set was designed by Taylor herself for the TE Collection.  It's PERFECT for kids or adults who are kids at heart!  I made this card with my hubby in mind, because you know.....He Floats My Boat!  LOL!  I don't know how he'll feel about pink ribbon, but I'm sure he'll love it because he always says I never make him cards, so this one is for him!  I used the sailboat image (1 of 22 images/sentiments) and paired it with this month's Valentine Project Pantry Kit.  I LOVE this kit!!  I made the "waves" using an EK Success Border Punch.  The bottom portion of the "waves" is popped up on foam tape.  A little machine stitching and a sentiment flag finishes it off!

Next up on the menu is the Kid's Valentine Card Kit!  Taylor asked all of us with kids if our kids would like to be a "Tiny Chef" and make some samples with the Valentine Kid's Card Kit and my girls were ALL OVER IT!  LOL!

Here they are with their finished projects:


This is Lauren!


This is Sarah!



The Valentine Kid's Card Kit  has enough supplies to make 20 kid's valentines.  There is patterned paper, ribbon, adhesive gems (round and hearts), colored cardstock and white cardstock.  Lauren made these two cards (and plans on making more) with the card kit and the new Kid at Heart stamp set.  See that frame?  It's part of Kid at Heart, too!  It's hard to tell from the picture, but the white background on both cards were embossed with the new Heart Impression Plate


These two were made by Sarah using the all of the supplies from the card kit with Kid at Heart stamp set.  Her sister, Lauren, tied the bows for her!  They thought up the layouts and everything on their own!  It was really fun to watch!  Don't you love the tilted panel on the card on the right!  A girl after my own heart! 

I think this might have been the best my girls got along all of Christmas Vacation!  They were complimenting each other and everything!  LOL

Okay.....now onto one more project using another new set called A Little Love.  A Little Love is a mini stamp set to coordinate with the favor frame die. This set was illustrated by Taylor as part of the TE collection and is great for sweet treats and tags!


I made a SIMPLE set of clear bag treats with Valentine M&M's for my girls to give to some of their best friends.  I personally don't like to go all out for the kids valentine treats because I've seen those kids just rip all of my hard work to shreds!  LOL. 


Here is a close up.  I simply filled a clear bag with some Valentine M&M's and finished it off with a tag I made using A Little Love.  I cut the frame out with the Favor Frame Die and layered it on a From The Heart Frame Die that was embossed with the Heart Impression Plate.  It was attached to the bag with some baker's twine and a button.  At the end I added a stamped heart from the set.  It looked too plain so I simply added some red glitter with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen to the center portion of the heart.  My girls loved them!!

Whew......I hope you made it to the end!  Thanks for sticking with me!

Now don't forget to check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up for today!!!


Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous projects, Jackie! I love how you inked the portions of the sailboat differently! And your little treat bags are super cute!

Lauren, your teeny, tiny bow is super cute and I love the knotted strand of ribbon too!

Sarah, way to get creative with the offset panel and the three little hearts under the love birds sentiment are the perfect touch!

Thanks for joining the Tiny Chefs, girls! You did a great job!

These are all fabulous as always Jackie--I really love the sailboat card and I'm sure your hubbie won't mind the pink bow, the boat makes up for it, right?? :) I LOVE the girls projects too-- wow, they are already majorly talented little stampers!! I can't wait for my daughter to get old enough to really enjoy it-- she had fun coloring and pushing the stamps down, but I can't wait to see the creativity! (Oh and totally agree on simple treats-- I have had that cringe moment watching kids rip into my hard work too!
