It's time again for another release from Taylored Expressions and wait to see what we have to show you this month!
Every 3 months Taylored Expressions introduces a new set in the TE Giving Tree Program. Each set supports a different charity for 3 months after release. The newest set in the TE Giving Tree Program is Discover Your Wings designed by Nancy McKinney. This set will be available for purchase Friday December 4th at 8:00 am PST. I just LOVE the TE Giving Tree Program. Taylor always finds wonderful charities to support through the sales of these stamp sets. This quarter's set, Discover Your Wings, will help support the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation. The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation is a charity that administers a network of almost 7000 photographers in the US and 25 other countries who volunteer their time to gently provide a helping hand and healing heart to families who have suffered the loss of an infant by offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner. NILMDTS is there for parents and families to help them in their healing, bring hope to their future, and to honor their child. They believe that it is through remembrance that a family can truly begin to heal. Taylored Expressions is honored to help support the work of this wonderful charity. I encourage you to go to their website and learn more about their wonderful work.
I never knew this charity existed until now. I wish I had as my sister had a stillborn daughter nine years ago. The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation does beautiful work! When you go to the website, make sure you have tissues with you. . .the photographs are absolutely beautiful and so very touching. $7 from the purchase of each Discover Your Wings set will be donated to this amazing charity.
I created a card set that I could give as a gift. I cut down an acetate box to make a clear card purse. For the handle (which you can hardly see in the first picture) is made from cutting a strip of acetate from an 8.5"x11" sheet. The handle measurements are 1"x11". I attached it at either end with glue dots. It makes for SUPER SIMPLE and fast packaging. . .and it shows off your cards since you can see through it! No decorating the box needed! I used the Blue Hill Collection from Crate Paper for the cards.
Come blog hoppin' with me to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have cooked up with Discover Your Wings today.
