To celebrate our 6th year, we’ve designed a special party favor, Think Happy Thoughts. This petite stamp set includes a very “happy” coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 11th – September 21st. One free set per customer, while supplies last.

I am so excited to be a part of Taylored Expressions 6th Birthday Celebration!  This is going to be a knock your socks off week of fun, so let’s get started!  I used the Incentive Set, Think Happy Thoughts for today and I think it’s a set that you are going to love!  It comes with a coordinating “Happy” die and the sentiments combined with the die make this set so much fun!

Guess what?  Taylored Expressions is release some amazing NEW products this month…this embossing folder, Lots of Dots is one of them.  I LOVE embossing folders…a simple dot folder can take a card or project to the next level with minimum effort.  And guess what?  They measure 4.75″ x 5.75″ and were specifically designed to accommodate an ENTIRE card front!  How cool is that?  Take a look below at Lots of Dots embossing folder in action.

And there’s more exciting news…Taylored Expressions is launching Matched by Taylored Expressions.  Matched is a new product line that was made to match card stock (premium 100 lb), patterned paper packs, and multi-colored sequin bottles.  My Happy Happy Joy Joy card uses this premium 100 lb Matched card stock in Lollipop, Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster and Sugar Cube.  This card stock cuts like buttah with the dies and the colors are so gorgeous!  The sequins are Double the Fun Matching Sequins Girl.

My second card uses Little Bits Party Hat.  The Little Bits Collection has fast become a favorite of mine.  I find myself using them often and they work well with so many stamps and ideas!  Here I used Little Bits Party Hat with Up & UP & Away Cutting Plate.  How amazing is this cutting plate?  Balloon cards make me happy and so I decided the balloons needed fun party hats.  The patterned paper I used is from Double the Fun, which is a 6×6 patterned paper PACK.  This paper pack is not a glued paper pad, but includes 24 single sided sheets that come in a hang bag.  This hang bag gives you a place to store your scraps securely.  The sentiment is again from the Incentive Set, Think Happy Thoughts.
