Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2


Are you ready for some more sneak peeks?  The project I have to share with you today uses the Make the Grade and Extra Credit sets from Taylored Expressions, to be released tomorrow, Thursday, April 8th at 8am PST.  It also uses the Apple Jack Card Kit.  If you haven't purchased one of the card kits before from Taylored Expressions, you can view the video on Taylor's blog to see what value is packed in there!  This is what you'll receive in the card kit:

10 Choice Cardstock A2 card bases
10 A2 envelopes
15 sheets of patterned paper sized for cardmaking at 4" x 6" (3 sheets each of 5 double-sided patterns)
20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock (4 sheets each of 5 colors)
1 package of Kaisercraft Pearls
8 panels of Choice Cardstock sized 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (for images and layering)
5 yards of ribbon (2.5 yards each of 2 different styles)
1 Perfect Package Card Box

Everything you need to create a gift package is included!  (except adhesive and a paper trimmer, of course) Each of my cards only uses supplies that came in the card kit. 

With Teacher Appreciation Week coming up, I thought I would create a gift for Savannah's kindergarten teacher.  Savannah ADORES Miss Mackey and she loves to give her homemade gifts, so I know she'll love giving her this gift box filled with cards. 





I made one extra card to go in the set.  This card uses one of the a la carte Cuppie images, Chalkboard Cuppie. It does not use supplies from the card kit, so that's why I say it's "extra".  I used the cursive alphabet image from Extra Credit to create the little piece of patterned paper.  The image was colored using Copic markers. 


So, how do you like the Apple Jack Card Kit?  Hopefully I've inspired you to create a gift set for the teachers in your life!  Don't forget to stop and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created using these sets!  I can't wait to see!
