Taylored Expressions Release Day-Sweet Occasions

Woooo Hoooo!!!! It's release day at Taylored Expressions and all the wonderful new stamp sets will be available for purchase...simply click on the Fresh Out Of The Oven tab to find all the new products. But before you go shopping, the Baker's Dozen has some wonderful Taylored Card Kits to share. As you hop along today you'll see card kits made with all three new sets, Discover Your Wings, Crafty Cuppie, and Sweet Occasions. Taylor has hand-picked a selection of patterned papers, cardstock, ribbons, and pearls to coordinate with each stamp set and has also included a Perfect Package Card Box to wrap up your set of cards.
Today I'm showing you the Sweet Occasions card set that I created using the Pretty Please Card Kit. Each Taylored Card Kit comes complete with enough supplies to create 10 cards with plenty of layering. I love love LOVE how this card set turned out...the stamp set is sooooo sweet and perfect for so many occasions and the colours in the Pretty Please Card Kit are perfectly cheery!!!!
I think it's important to note that the only supplies I added to my Taylored Card Kit were copic markers, a border punch, dry embossing folder, sewing and adhesive. Each Taylored Card Kit has endless opportunities for card design and layout. I chose to use the same layout for all my cards, but there are plenty of supplies included in the kit so you could shake it up if you wanted.

Here's a shot of each of the cards. I did a crazy wave stitch around the perimeter of each card to tie in with the wave frame around each image. I added pearls to the top let corner on each card, except for the Friend card. I added them to the actual image for that one.
And here's my decorated Perfect Package Card Box.
And I thought I'd show you all the supplies I have left after making my 10 cards...there's still plenty to work with.
It took me about four hours to make all these cards and decorate the Perfect Package Card Box...not too bad IMO! Best of all, now I have a gift ready to go for either a family member, a friend, or a hostess!
As you may have guessed, we have another prize giveaway today. Come blog hoppin' with me to see what the Baker's Dozen girls have cooked up with Discover Your Wings, Crafty Cuppie, and Sweet Occasions.

Be sure to leave some love along the way because one lucky commenter will win a Crafty Cuppie stamp set!!! How cool is that?!?

All you have to do is leave a comment on each Baker's Dozen blog today for the best chance to win! One lucky winner will be chosen at random from all of the comments on one of the blogs, but the trick is that nobody knows which blog it will be! You have until 6am PST on Saturday to enter. The winner will be announced on Monday morning on Taylor's blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
