Taylored Expressions - Preview Day 1


card & sweets

I’m so excited (well, I say that every month) to bring you some samples using the new sweet & delicious Taylored Expressions Whimsical Expressions set called Berries & Cherries and yummy key ingredients!! For my first project, because I love strawberries (and they’re even better covered in chocolate) I made a box of chocolate covered strawberries and matching card. I decorated the card & box identically with all elements of the key ingredients kit. The box, you may recognize is the Perfect Package card box, available at Taylored Expressions. I used my Upper and Lowercase Times New Roman JustRite font for the top of the box. I forgot to get pictures of the strawberry close – up, I actually covered the chocolate with crystal lacquer for some great shine on it. I love the sentiment, “Why eat fruit when you can eat fruit covered in chocolate?

Here is a picture of the yummy strawberries! I lined the bottom of the card box with wax paper.

On my second project, I used the yummy pie image with swirly steam to represent a strawberry pie—hhhmmmm. I used Jen De Muro’s sketch for you to try (SFYTT) which showcases this delectable Doodlebug pattern paper in the key ingredients! I just adore the images & sentiments in this set as well as the Doodlebug strawberry braddies I used by the sentiment. Taylor will have full color photos & details on her blog on release day.

Be sure to check out the sweet creations the rest of the Baker’s Dozen Design Team have to share with you! And be sure to come back tomorrow and Wednesday (Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. CST all the new products will be available for purchase!) YEA – I think I may be buying 2 of the key ingredients packages, I love it THAT much and know you will too!) See ya tomorrow with another preview!

Ohhhhhhh, gf, you have one of my VERY favorite desserts in your post today...chocolate covered strawberries! For valentine's day, I ask for just ONE thing...and that is chocolate covered strawberries from Gertrude & Hawk from DH...oh, now I totally WANT them...but darn, I'm on a diet. Poo!

Love your cards and your decorated box. I'm going to have to try the crystal effects on my next TE card. Love the look of it on the chocolate.

Man, I just wrote a book there, huh?
