Sneak Peek Taylored Expressions Day 1

If you read Taylor's blog post from yesterday, you know that Taylored Expressions is "branching out" in more ways than one! Not only has Taylor added a new stamp designer and 6 new people to the Baker's Dozen, but she's added a new stamp line called Whimsical Wishes! Don't worry, those Stamp a Sweet Impression Cuppies aren't gone, they're just getting some "company"! :)

Today's peeks use Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates - two adorable new sets to kick off the new Whimsical Wishes line! Taylored Expressions will be donating the proceeds from sales of these two new sets to a wonderful charity - Eden Projects. There will be new stamp sets introduced quarterly for this on-going charitable program. Unlike other TE sets, these sets DO need to be trimmed when you get them - this cut the manufacturing cost in order to give more to charity.

So what do you think of the new sets? I think they're adorable! They're perfect for so many different occasions. The first card is perfect for a friend, or maybe a family member with whom you have some fond childhood memories. I just LOVE the coordinates that you can add to the tree. . .so many possibilities! The second card is perfect for a friend as sort of an "in thick or thin" kind of card. Later in the week I'll show you how these sets can also make something perfect for a child! Be sure and check back!

To see more sneak peeks, please visit the blogs of the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see their fabulous creations!
