It's Your Birthday! -Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday Mega Party & Designer Reunion

Hello there, TE fans!
I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to play along with Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday Mega Party and Designer Reunion!

I've been a Taylored Expressions fan since 2010 and hopped along with the Key Ingredients designers as a guest way back then!  Needless to say, I'm super excited to be hopping along with TE again as they celebrate 10 amazing years!

There are almost 40 designers involved in the hop today, so click this link to Taylor's blog, you don't miss a beat!

Check out these brand-new products that just hit the shelves at Taylored Expressions!

Here are the darling TE products that I used on my card today!

I stamped, colored and die-cut the adorable cake image from Party Pals to take center stage of the card.  Notice the background has been embossed with the Sprinkles embossing folder for added texture and dimension. After cutting one of the circle Tag Stacklets 3 and one of the Double-ended Flag Stackets, then stamping the sentiment, I layered this fun birthday card up for a whimsical look, adding some baker's twine and sequins for a little extra flair.

How adorable is that cake image from Party Pals?!  LOVE!

Share Joy Campaign

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign. Will you join us? Find out how to participate by viewing their Share Joy page here:

Thanks so much for stopping by and hopping along with us for TE's 10th Birthday Party!

Just a Note to Say Hello - SugarPea Designs

Hey there! 
Long time, no see!

After a basement clean-out and reorganization of my craft space, I couldn't wait to play along with some of my favorite stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs

There's a challenge up and running over at SugarPea Designs, too, so I just had to attempt "mixing it up" using both the sketch and the photo inspiration from the Mix It Up Challenge #46 - Fresh Inspiration!

Old habits die hard as you can see from my layering and and added texture!  The sentiment stamp and Hello die are from a previously released SugarPea Designs.  After looking through the shop, it seems that there are many new stamps and dies that are calling my name!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
