Hi everyone, it has been a fun week of sneak peeks and releases! Everything is now available at Taylored Expressions and I hope you’ve had as much fun as I’ve had this past week! I’m back to share this tag from Hey Sweet Tea, an adorable and must have set! If you watch Duck Dynasty, then you probably already know about Sy and his never ending love affair with Sweet Tea. He always has a glass or the whole pitcher of it with him!
For my tag I used Label Stacklets 4 and die cut the coordinating die to Hey Sweet Tea, Mason Jar Glass & Lid. I cut the first layer in Choice Snow white card stock and the second layer in vellum. I colored the first layer with Copics to look like iced tea and added the ice, lemon, and straw. Of course, I had to add Stickles to the lemons for a little added sparkle. I just LOVE this set!
Did you know that adding a pinch of baking soda to iced tea takes the bitterness out of it? I follow a recipe I found on Pinterest a long time ago. I add 1/4 tsp baking soda to my tea bags while they’re steeping (12 tea bags in 4 cups boiling water, add sugar @ 3 cups or to taste, then add enough water to make a gallon). It makes a huge difference and makes the tea so smooth. You can also add lemons, peaches, raspberries, mint…whatever you fancy. My kids are crazy for Sweet Tea! Yum!!!

It has been a fun week of previews and today is Release Day! What I love most about April’s release is that all of the stamps and dies are perfect to use year round. My tag card today uses Windy Tree. It’s gorgeous on its own and as a negative. Be sure to check out everything in the Fresh Out of the Oven department, you won’t want to miss a thing!
The background paper is Doodlebug Flower Box (I LOVE this paper pad!) and I love it with this die. Tag Stacklets 1 made my image pop and kept it CAS. I had fun scattering the leaves around. I added simple stitching around the border and added a sweet bow to the trunk. I hope you all had as much fun as I’ve had, can’t wait to share one last card tomorrow!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week. I’m so excited to share an adorable new image called Sassy Flower Fairy, which is party of the September Club Kit 2012. All the images in this kit are so sweet and it was hard to pick just one for today!
The challenge this week was to use a tag, so I made a card with a pull out tag to use as a topper or a bookmark. For my card, I used Wildflower dies (Lifestyle Crafts), Library Pocket die (Taylored Expressions), vellum, a Pergamano butterfly I made a long time ago, Copics, and of course, some Stickles!
Be sure to see what the rest of our very talented DT has to share, they really rocked it!
Have a fan-tabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
