Taylored Expressions...Much Appreciated

Happy Sunday Taylored Expressions Fans,

I am just popping in for a quick post. I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, TURKEY and family. I cannot believe how quickly Thanksgiving is over with. *Sigh*

I have one more lovely card to share with you using November's Taylored Expressions Release. I created this card with my son's teacher in mind (you can never say "Thank You" enough for all the hard work a teacher puts into creating a wonderful learning environment).

Happy Tuesday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I am so excited to spend time with family and friends. I am always amazed at how quickly time flies; however, there is always time for crafting. Today, I am showcasing a "Thanks" card  featuring crafting goodies from Taylored Expressions' November release.

Hello Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week! With that fact in mind, Just A Scrappin' is getting into the thick of things with a Thanksgiving Challenge. Go ahead, step into your craft room before the guests arrive and the festivities begin and join us in a challenge to create a card, project or layout celebrating Thanksgiving.

Moxie Fab World Challenge...Let Me See Your Workspace

Monday, November 17, 2014

Happy Monday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I came across this week's Moxie Fab World "Throwdown Challenge" and thought, "Hey, I can do that!" I love seeing what fellow crafters have on their crafting desks. Here is what is currently on my desk: a stack of cards I need to send out; and two, my latest Taylored Expressions's order.

Thank you for stopping by.



Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge No. 34

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Happy Thursday fellow Scrappers and Crafters,

I recently came across a lovely, creatively inspirational blog called Fill Your Paper With the Breathings of Your {Heart}. Every Monday, Taheerah, post a weekly inspirational picture to get the creative juices truly needed on Mondays. This is my first time playing in a challenge where a picture inspires me to create and I was honestly looking forward to playing along. This week's picture inspiration, Child's Play, is filled with geometric shapes and lovely pastel colors...a true eye catcher.

My card incorporates both the colors and the geometric landscape of the room. And with Christmas only a few week's away, I pushed the creative envelope and created a pastel winter scene instead of using traditional Christmas colors.

JAS Challenge...Celebrating Veterans' Day

Happy Thursday Fellow Scrappers and Crafters,

Happy Veterans' Day! I want to write a heartfelt Thank You to the men and women who defend Democracy. Equally, I want to write Thank You to the silent warriors on the home front (spouses, children, friends and family) who keep life moving back at home. We Salute you ALL. Thank You for your service.

Taylored Expressions' November Release

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Happy Thursday Taylored Expressions Fans!

The November Release is here! I hope you have enjoyed stopping by the Taylored Expressions blog all this week to view this month's awesome new dies, stamps, embossing folders and other crafting goodies.

This month, I am showcasing In Other Words--Tea, a lovely stamp set that can be used for both birthday celebrations and encouragement. I created this card by embossing the stamped image using VersaMark ink and Zing black embossing powder and then quickly heat setting the image. Next, I pulled out a variety of Tim Holtz Distress ink pads to watercolor my image. I love using this technique.
