Today the Baker's Dozen is sharing samples created using Wreaths of Joy, and the set I used, Glad Tidings.

Glad Tidings is illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink collection and is a mini set on a sturdy 4.75" square full colour storage panel. There are 10 images for just $12.95. This is an adorable nativity set that allows you to build your own scene and combine it with animals from other sets in the Apple Doodle Ink collection.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with copics before cutting it out with rectangle Nestabilities. I paired the image with another new set, Banner Holiday, which is a perfect holiday sentiment set that coordinates with the popular Banner Day 1, 2, &3 sets. Banner Holiday is designed and illustrated by Taylor for the *te* collection. It's a mini set of 15 holiday sentiments for just $12.95. The banner day 3 die was perfect for cutting out the sentiment and I used the small scallop border die to cut out the green strip.

All the papers are from the Holiday Wonder Project PantryWhen you want to bake up a yummy dessert you head to your pantry for the ingredients.  When you want to create a sweet papercrafting project, you can head to our Project Pantry for all the coordinating elements.  We've found that some of the best cake and cookie recipes are the ones based around a basic batter or dough recipe with lots of options to spice it up according to your tastes.  Taylored Expressions is offering our Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.

The Holiday Wonder Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:
Authentique Wonder 6x6 pad
10 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in coordinating colors
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:
  • Decorative Brad Mix
  • Red/Green Paper Roses
  • Christmas Glitter Assortment
  • Red Pearls
  • Coordinating Copic Markers
  • Additional Cardstock Pack
  • Additional Ribbon Bundle

Here are the dies I used:
