Taylored Expressions January Release Day!

Hi All! Today is Release Day at Taylored Expressions!  Another great release and great products for Valentine Day or any day you want to make someone feel special!

Today I am working with the new Dachshunds in Love, part of the Animals in Love Series, and the new Heart Favor Box die.

To create my card I used this month's Valentine Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit. All my ingredients are from the kit except for the twine.

We're offering our Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit along with additional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it!

Valentine Basic Recipe Project Pantry Kit includes:
20 sheets of double sided patterned paper (American Crafts With Love Collection)
12 sheets of 8.5 x 11 solid cardstock
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

My puppies are colored with Copics and their sweaters are paper pierced. I added a button from the kit. My border is cut with the Large Scallop Border Die.

To create my favor box I used the new Heart Favor Box Die.  It is quick and easy to put together and makes such a sweet gift.

I created a quick and easy, but oh so cute tag, using the Totally Tags Valentine Stamp Set and the Totally Tags Dies. I tied it to my favor box with ribbon for the Project Pantry Kit.

 TE Release Day!
