Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

I can't believe it's time for another Taylored Expressions release! This month, you are in store for some exciting new things! It's Day 1 of the Taylored Expressions February Release Sneak Peeks and we have something EXTRA exciting to share today - a whole new line of rubber stamps called Apple Doodle Ink! We are launching this FUN new line with two stamp sets designed to coordinate perfectly together - Window Shopping and Bakery Business. I just LOVE the fun, cartoon style of these images.

I have two projects to share with you today. The first is using both Window Shopping and Bakery Business to create a bakery bag gift. When I was thinking of how to use my Window Shopping set, I thought "I wonder if one of these windows will fit over the bakery bag window. . .and it did! First I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the window onto the bag. Then I stamped the window on various pieces of patterned paper in order to paper piece. I mounted the awning using dimensionals. I used the sign from Window Shopping, but a partial sentiment from Bakery Business for my little "sign in the window". I also added the display plate and cupcake from the Bakery Business set. I stamped the cupcake all over the bag to personalize it. The cupcake on the plate was colored using Copic markers and I added some Stardust Stickles. The bag is filled with Apple Cinnamon muffins that my daughters helped bake.



My second project is a card that I'm sure so many of us can identify with! Thankfully, I think the "diet phase" of my life is over. "Anything in moderation" has been my mantra since having kids. It's so much less frustrating that way! LOL This card uses only the Bakery Business set.

Be sure to stop and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up for you:

Stop back tomorrow for more peeks of what's to come!
