April TE Sneak Peek Day 2!


Good morning doodlebugs!! I'm baaack!! Smiley from millan.net
Did you just looove yesterday, or what??  Well get ready because today is going to be another awesome day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!!

I better get right to it!! So..among all of the awesomeness of the stamps being released this month Taylor is giving us the absolute perfect solution for gift-giving!! You may have seen the Card Kits Jackie, Melissa, Karen and Taylor shared yesterday using the Mini Motifs and CreativiTea stamp sets (stunning, I know!!), and today it's my turn!

I love cute and fun, as you know!! that's why I fell in love with the Apple Jack Card Kit featuring the NEW stamp sets we are showing off today!!  If you are always looking for the perfect gift for your child's teacher (mug SO NOT included!! lol..), or special cards to share with friends, you will love our Make the Grade, and Extra Credit stamp sets!!  Of course, you can't have cute and fun without throwing in some Cuppie!! and this time we debut three A La Carte Cuppies - you can get just one or score all three!Smiley from millan.net  whoo-hoo!

SO, what do you get when you combine all this fabulousness?? 

You get a super-cool and EASY gift to put together!!  Here's what I did with my new stamps and my Apple Jack Card Kit:

This is the top view of my Perfect Package Card box.  I stamped my Report Card Cuppie using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in using Copics.  Easy and SO very cute!!  Keep in mind that EVERYTHING I used to put all of this together is included in the kit - but more on that later!!!

Now I will show you the front flap of my Card Box:

isn't that stinkin' fun, and so cheery??  Who would not love to get a gift packaged up like this?? Besides, once the cards are gone, your recipient can keep this wonderfully sturdy box forever!

Speaking of cards, here are some of the very cute and very simple cards you can create with everything included in this wonderful kit!!

For your Star (or cutest class clown :) :

This card uses the most magnificent border which is part of the Extra Credit stamp set.   The sentiment is part of the Make the Grade set, and of course, it's super versatile!  (I'm loving it for kiddie birthday Thank You notes too!!)

My next card is just perfect for your favorite teacher!!  (or your not so-favorite-one too..might just butter 'em up!) Smiley from millan.net


Again, I used this delicious apple from my Extra Credit set and the lovely sentiment is from my Make The Grade set.  My apple also colored using Copics, and I used a small piece of Foam tape to "pop" my sentiment off my card, and my apple is adhered using glue dots.

My next card is for that very special graduate!!

Can you stand it?? How cute is this little owl?? He is part of the Make the Grade stamp set.  My little owl is also colored using Copics, and it literally took no more than a few minutes to get this card done! Easy Peasy!! Seriously, who doesn't need graduation cards by the stack come late spring??

My next card is for the extra-special over achiever!  we all have one right?? (well, not in my family, but I guess ya' never know when you might meet one...) tee-hee

Can you just believe this adorable report card??  I decided to distress this one up too since it just looks SO cool!!

This awesome kit was super fun to work with and the best part was that not only did I make all of these cards (and decorated my box!!) using ONLY items included with the kit, and I still have tons of stuff left over to make some more cards!!  you can also make a perfect stationery gift set by making at least 10 of the same cards and packaging them up in your pretty box!

There will be three card kits for you to choose from this month, and don't worry about running out of ideas to put your goodies to use because with any kit you choose you will also get an
inspiration sheet (via download) featuring the designs of all of the Baker's Dozen!  How cool is that??  Now, if you're curious about the card kit's price -super budget-friendly!! only $14.95 Smiley from millan.net yup!! seriously!! isn't that awesome??? 

You will NOT believe everything that's included in each kit:

10 Choice Cardstock card bases (with 10 matching envelopes!)

15 sheets of patterned
paper  - already cut to the perfect for cardmaking! you get 3 sheets each of 5 double-sided

20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5
1/2" cardstock (4 sheets each of 5 colors!)

1 full package of
Kaisercraft Pearls(As you can see from my samples, I have these all over! OMG, I am in looove!!). 

You also get 8 panels of our favorite Choice
Cardstock (love it!)

5 yards of coordinating ribbon (2 styles), and of course 1 Perfect Package Card

whew.. told you it was a ton of yummy goodness!! 

Seriously, these kits are wonderfully put together, and the product is (as always) top-quality! It is a fabulous thing to be able to put together a nice stack of cards in a short amount of time where everything is basically done for you!  I plan on taking a few of these kits to my next Crop and just putting them together to give as gifts!  I can't imagine anyone NOT putting these gorgeous kits to use!  

Just wait until you see the rest of the images in the stamp sets we are
previewing today! I am telling you they are sheer genius!!  When I first saw them I squealed like a little freak! I {heart} them BIG time!! I know you're going to feel the same when you see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has in store for you today, so get ready to be inspired when visiting these gorgeous ladies:
