Today you're going to see a recap of all the sets the Baker's Dozen has been previewing the past three days, and it's going to be a FUN recap because the sets are all so adorable!

I worked with Woodland Winter again and used supplies from the 12 Days Project Pantry, along with the Trim the Tree dies. I adore the little critters in this set and decided to use the raccoon. He cracks me up holding that little candy cane, and with his raccoon mask it makes me think he's going to steal the present under the tree or maybe beat it open like a piñata. LOL!!!

The images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics, except the tree which is all done with patterned paper thanks to the Trim the Tree dies. I added sparkle to the candy cane and the red bow with red and green Spica glitter pens. Oh, and I gave the raccoon some dimension by popping his head up on foam tape. I used my swirls impression plate on the patterned paper behind the tree to add a little texture the added some rhinestones to decorate the tree. The small scallop border die was perfect to cut out the green strip just below the ribbon. The layout is Jen's October Sketch For You To Try.

Before you head off to Taylored Expressions fill your shopping cart, be sure to hop over to the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs for more inspiring projects.
