Mojo With Love

Things have been crazy here for last couple of months and I haven't been able to play along in the Mojo Monday Sketch as much.  I had some time here over break, so I thought I'd join in this week!  Maybe this week's sketch will get YOUR mojo going too! 

I used the Chevron Love set for my card.  The papers are from the Here and Now Collection from Echo Park.  I used the Jotted Heart Die for this big hearts and just stamped, embossed and cut the medium heart by hand.  The little hearts up in the right hand corner were die cut using the Heart Quartet Die.  I added some White Opal Liquid Pearls and some twine to finish the card.  Hope you find some time to be creative today!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Bucketful of Love

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!  We had a great time with family and friends and we're really enjoying the time off of school!  ;)  I have a card to share with you today.  It uses the December Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions called Going Places.  We've had a little snow lately, so I thought I'd use this set in a wintery way. 

I used some papers from the Bundled Up Project Pantry, which contains the Bundled Up Collection from Crate Paper, and made a winter fun card using the bucket image from Going Places.   I stamped and bucket onto red cardstock and colored it with some red Copic markers and added some white accents with a gel pen.  As for the "mound" of snow in bucket?  That is one of the clouds I die cut using the coordinating Enjoy the Journey die set.   I also die cut a few more and placed them at different points on the patterned paper to look like little snow mounds.  The sentiment was stamped on a piece of Kraft cardstock that was die cut with the frame image die.  To finish the card off, I added some ribbon and a little curly piece that was die cut using the Curly Border Die

So, the card doesn't really look like what you'd expect from the Going Places stamp set, but it sure does work.  For more information on the Stamp of the Month Kit, visit Taylored Expressions and see which subscription might be right for you!!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

TE December Stamp of the Month

It's time to feature this month's Stamp of the Month at Taylored Expressions!  Today I have a new Stamp of the Month and Key Ingredients Kit to share with you from Taylored Expressions!  This month's set is called Going Places and it is a lot of fun!!  There is a coordinating die set available sold separately called Enjoy the Journey.  

The images in the set really are adorable.  They have coordinating sentiments that make this set perfect for a variety of occasions!!  I just LOVE this little bicycle image and I love it when it's die cut!  It makes for creating adorable embellishments!  :)  This month's Key Ingredients coordinated perfectly with the Stamp of the Month as well!  I cut the "endurance" and "trust where your heart leads you" out of the patterned paper.  I thought it went well with the "you are going places" sentiment from the stamp set.

Taylored Expressions December Spotlight Day: Bugs and Balloons

Have enjoyed seeing all of the new sets available at Taylored Expressions?  I hope so!  I've really enjoyed creating with the sets.  In case you missed yesterday, all of the new products are now available in the TE Store!!  I have one last project to share with you today.  It's uses the adorable Bugs and Balloons set.  If you visited my blog for any length of time, I'll bet you can guess why I love this set so much!  ;)  Yep, that adorable ladybug!!  Bugs and Balloons come with 5 dies. 

I created this little box which I think is perfect for a little girl!!  The box was created using the Gift Box Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.  All I did was decide on my box size, cut my paper to size, stamp the box and assemble!  I used the dots to decorate plain white cardstock.  The ladybug was created using the coordinating dies, as were the hearts. Pure cuteness!!  :)

Thanks for stopping by all this week!  I hope you've been inspired to create!  Be sure to stop and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you today and have a wonderful day!!

Taylored Expressions December Release Day: Max & Muffin

It's RELEASE DAY!!  All of the new products we've been featuring this week are NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store!!  I have another project to share with you today before you shop!  :)  It uses the Max & Muffin set.  Max & Muffin is an adorable set.  It is the first in a Pawsitively Purrfect series of petite stamp sets featuring canine and feline friends, and it was concepted by Jen Shults! This set comes with 2 dies. 

I created a little card set using this set because I couldn't decide on which sentiment to use since I love them all!!  :)  As with all of the petite sets, this set works very well with clean and simple cards.

I stamped, colored and die cut the cat images and then paired them with coordinating sentiments.  Isn't this set just the cutest?  It just makes me smile!!

Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks: Petite-a-Palooza Day 2

Welcome back for Day 2 of the December Sneak Peeks for Taylored Expressions!  I have two more projects for you today using two more ADORABLE petite sets!!  The first card uses the Showered With Love set.  Showered With Love is an adorable set containing a big whale and a little whale along with some accessories to make them even cuter!  Showered With Love comes with 4 dies that make creating effortless.

For my card, I used papers from the I Heart Summer Collection from Simple Stories.  I stamped the waves from the set in two different colors onto the card base and then added the patterned paper blocks.  Once I decided on placement of the whale, I stamped the "fountain".  The whale was stamped and then die cut using the coordinating dies.  I added an "eye" using some black liquid pearls.  Isn't he adorable?!  :)

For my second card, I used the Dig In set.  Dig In is an adorable boy set.  I see so many little boy occasions that I can use this set for.  Dig In contains different tractors along with punny sentiments to go with them.

It comes with 2 dies so you can have perfectly die cut tractors every time! :)  The papers I used here are from the Smarty Pants Collection from Simple Stories.  The tractor was stamped, colored with Copic markers and then die cut using the coordiating dies.  On the bottom of the card, I added some chevron stripes using the Chevron Borders Dies.  Isn't this set perfect for those little men in your life?  So cute!!

The rest of the Baker's Dozen has even more to show you today, so don't miss those creations!!  Remember that everything we're featuring will be available for purchase tomorrow, Thursday, December 5th at 7am Pacific!!  If you can't wait to see what's in store, the Facebook Preview Party is tonight at 6 PM Pacific!  Thanks for stopping by today!!
