We have LOTS of new products to show you this week!  Are you ready?  The two projects I have for you today use the Woodland Winter set and the Snow A la Carte

First up is Woodland Winter.  This set has the cutest little crietters that create the most darling Winter and holiday scenes!  AND the tree even has a matching die!  :)  This is a full sized set containing 21 images and sentiments.  It was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink Collection.  The coordinating Trim the Tree Taylored Die Set contains 8 dies to create Christmas trees and woodland scenes.  I create the tree on this card with the dies and patterned paper. 

The patterned paper is from one of TWO Project Pantries that are being released this month!  This is the 12 Days Project Pantry!  When you want to bake up a yummy dessert you head to your pantry for the ingredients. When you want to create a sweet papercrafting project, you can head to our Project Pantry for all the coordinating elements. We've found that some of the best cake and cookie recipes are the ones based around a basic batter or dough recipe with lots of options to spice it up according to your tastes. Taylored Expressions is offering our Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.

12 Days Project Pantry - Basic Recipe Kit and Spice it Up Optional Ingredients
The 12 Days Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:

My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 pad
12 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in coordinating colors
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:
  • Christmas Button Mix
  • Doodlebug Holiday Brads
  • Rockin' Pink Sparkly Fluff
  • Rhinestones (Red, Split Pea, Island Lagoon)
  • Coordinating Copic Markers
  • Additional Cardstock Pack
  • Additional Ribbon Bundle

I also used the 12 Days Project Pantry on my second project!  This card uses the Snow A la Carte stamp.  This stamp was illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  It is an adorable addition to the Word A la Carte Collection!  I also used the It's a Banner Day 1 set and It's a Banner Day 1 Die along with a sentiment from the NEW Banner Holiday set!  Banner Holiday coordinates with the popular It's a Banner Day Collection originally concepted by Iwona Palamountain.  It was designed and illustrated by Taylor VanBruggen for the *te* Collection.  It is a mini set containing 15 holiday sentiments. 


Another exciting addition this month is the Moka Hope set.  October is breast cancer awareness month. TE will donate $1 from the sale of each Moka Hope set to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. 
This little set is perfect for all types of encouragement cards and while it was designed with breast cancer in mind, her ribbon can be customized to any color for any cause or disease.  It contains 7 images/sentiments and was designed by Nancy McKinney for the Moka Collection.  TE is a proud sponsor of the Hope You Can Cling To card drive.  Play the challenges on SCS during October and donate your cards to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.
