New Celebrate YOU from TE!

Taylored Expressions has a new Cardmaking Kit in town today and it is called Celebrate You! It is a super fun one because you can make infinity shakers galore! And foil! And stamp! And—well, there is a lot of fun to be had in this one! 🙂

First up, I wanted to use the Easy Strips to create a background that I die cut with the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklet and the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stacklet. I then tucked that panel inside the Infinity Shaker panel with the Shaker Dots included in the kit.

The words are created with the foiled Acetate Panel “Let’s Celebrate You” that is also in the kit. I foiled that with the Silver Stars foil. I put that on the background, which ultimately made taking photos hard, but in person, it is fun!! Ha!! 🙂

This next card includes the previously released Bits and Pieces-Confetti Dots which look good enough to eat–But DON’T! haaaaa! They are made of clay and that would be bad. I love these though. I need to order more because I might have used all mine now. 😉

I white heat embossed with Let’s Celebrate You stamp on Blueberry Cardstock and framed that out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate.  I can’t wait to make more these—so simple and yet, it is a party in a card!!

Also, can we just talk about the stickers for a minute?! LOVE. THEM.

Here’s the scoop from TE:

You’ll have everything you need to commemorate all the special occasions in life with our exclusive Celebrate You Cardmaking Kit! From anniversaries, birthdays and retirements to making the grade, earning a spot on the team or achieving something big, show them just how special they are with a card that celebrates that big accomplishment!

Our Celebrate You Cardmaking Kit retails for $62, comes in a zippered pouch with a custom sticker, and includes:

  • Let’s Celebrate You stamp
  • Foil it Acetate – Let’s Celebrate You panels (12 panels)
  • Mini Strips – Let’s Celebrate stamp
  • A2 Infinity Shaker Panels (5 panels)
  • Confetti Maker die
  • Mini Pot of Shaker Dots
  • A2 Envelope Pack (6 envelopes: Lollipop, Lemon Meringue, Candy Corn, Key Lime, Plum Punch, Sugar Cube)
  • Envelope Seal Pack (6 seals)
******Limited quantity available******

Most items are not available to purchase individually. You will be able to purchase additional envelope seals (pack of 10), additional A2 Infinity Shaker Panels, and the Mini Strips – Flags die (not included in the kit) separately.

The vast majority of the individual items included in our cardmaking kits will not be available to purchase individually in the future. While we may, on rare occasions, release a kit item into our regular inventory at a later time, this will no longer be an option for the majority of the products. Instead, they will remain exclusive to the kits and may only be purchased as part of a kit while supplies last. Since our curated cardmaking kits can sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase the kits you love when they are released, as they will not be restocked once they have sold out. We intend to release a kit the last Tuesday of each month at 9am (Central), and a sneak preview will be posted on the TE Blog on the Saturday prior to the release.
To be notified of new kit releases, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram! Stay tuned for another fabulous kit next month!

Happy Half Birthday, TE!

Taylored Expressions has a Half Birthday and is celebrating today!! The New Release today includes a new CREATE IN QUADS Stencil. My son celebrated his half birthday yesterday, so super enjoyable week on the Half Birthdays!!

For this card, I used the new Create in Quads-Birthday! Quad stencils are awesome because you get four panels in one swoop! You can make them all right away or save a panel for later and add a sentiment when you need one. Let’s get on with the cards shall we!

For these cards, I used all the fun bright colors–Lollipop, Cookie Monster, Pineapple, Granny Smith, Candy Corn. I made all the panels first on the Create in Quads Sugarcube cardstock. and then I trimmed them down to size. For some, I then used different stacklets.

The next one includes the other new goodie that is sent with qualifying purchases. Be U-nicorn and he is super cute!!! Gah!! I colored him with Copic Markers and added some Happy Medium Iridescent Glitter in the cloud.

The Wish Big sentiment is from the new It’s Your Day set (+dies).

The outside is created with the Frame in Frame 2.

My last two cards, I tried to keep things very simple and didn’t even add any stitching. I truly don’t know that I will do that again because the card doesn’t feel complete. ha!

The little bits are the new Clay Confetti Dots. The frame is created with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stacklets.

There is a coordinating die to cut out both the party hat and the packages. I didn’t use them for these cards, but thought I would mention. 🙂

I used the same method for this cards as well. Party Time!! 🙂

The critters are from the Mythical Grumplings set and the sentiments are Simple Strips from both Simple Strips-Birthday and Simple Strips-Snarky.

Here’s the scoop from TE:

Right now through 11:59PM CT, Sunday, March 20th when you make a purchase of $100 or more in the TE webstore, you will receive the Be U-nicorn Clear & Die Combo set FREE! This adorable unicorn critter floating on a cloud is perfect for sending a little magic and good luck to the special people in your life! Please note that this promotional set replaces our March incentive set during this release week. Offer valid while supplies last.

4th of July Release from Taylored Expressions!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today and it is full of Summer Goodness–it’s the 4th of July Release! 🙂 It not only celebrates all things patriotic, but it also gives us products to thank those who are serving and have served. And of course, if you take a step back and imagine all the things in different colors, they can be used for many occasions beyond the patriotic theme. 🙂

First up, we have Mr. Uncle Sam. Can we call him Mr. Uncle Sam? Not sure, but either way, these cutie little images in the Uncle Sam Stamp & Stencil Combo that Heather whipped up are perfect to celebrate!

This set is similar to those in the past, with a larger red rubber background stamp and then the stamps to fill in all the little things super easy. You do NOT need to color–love that! I mean, I love to color, but there is something satisfying about just stamping in all the fills and done! 🙂 And there are A LOT of fills to choose from. I stamped out a whole bunch, and then I ended up using three with the same top of hat fills in the uppermost row. How does that happen? haaaa! I finished this off with some stitching and some Drip Drops for added 4th of July sparkle and done! 🙂

I created the background with the Full Circle-Patriotic stamp white heat embossed. I die cut that circle out with the Stitched Circle Stacklets. To create the card base, I cut strips of cardstock and then die cut that with the Petite Scallop Square Stacklets. I popped everything together with some foam tape and added some Drip Drops for interest and boom, Happy 4th of July! 🙂

Next up, there is a SUPER fun new Rotating Stencil called: Superstar Rotating Stencil…go figure! 🙂 This gives the look of several layered stencils but with only ONE stencil! You just blend in your colors and rotate. Repeat four times and whammo! Done!

I thought it would be fun to veer off the patriotic path and make a sweet card, perfect for our son! Of course, I pulled out Gus & Gertie to help this task be executed. The NEW Building Blocks sentiments from the Building BlocksBrave Editions helped this come together in a flash!

I used lots of colors to make this extra STARtastic! Cherry Pop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Cilantro and Blueberry.

To finish off the panel, I used the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, along with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stacklets. I love how sweet this turned out! ❤

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions. See my links below to make things easier. 🙂
