Spring into Easter Taylored Expressions Fun Pack Project Kit!

Hello Happy Crafters!

So happy to be sharing my latest project kit with you today. Taylored Expressions has done it again with all the holiday cuteness.

The tag-pocket die is an instant favorite and that little basket die is just too cute! (And both are the perfect size for gift cards!) So easy to assemble, too. Then I picked up We R Memory Keeper’s 1-2-3 Punch Board (for making boxes, envelopes, and bows) and where has that been all my life?  Add in some sunshine-filled, hippity-hoppity cute cards and envelopes, and this is the perfect Fun Pack Kit as we get ready for spring and the Easter bunny’s upcoming visit!

As I did with the Valentine’s Kit, I wanted this Fun Pack of goodies to celebrate the coming spring and the Easter holiday with cards and treat boxes that are perfect for the kidlets, your besties, co-workers, teachers, grandparents, siblings…pretty much anyone who could use a smile and a happy hello!

Check out these fun treat boxes made with WRMK 1-2-3 Punch Board! Both boxes come pre-cut & scored for you. All you have to do is fold and attach, then decorate with TE’s adorable critters, and you’ve got instant cuteness in a box!

The larger box is 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” x 2 ½” and the smaller is a 2 ½” square. Tuck in some Easter grass and add in some sweet treats, or other fun surprises like movie tickets, friendship bracelets, gift cards, a personal note…or all of the above! The possibilities are many. (Gift cards will fit in the larger box.)

But wait, there’s more!

In addition to the two treat boxes, the cute chick tag pocket, and the Easter basket, your kit also comes with five cards & an envelope for each!

I love her new set of wee critter cars, and the roadway die is so much fun to use! You’ll notice the bunny dies showing up a few times in this Fun Pack, each one with a different expression. I love TE’s stamp sets that come with an array of wee face stamps. It’s like having a whole new stamp with each adorable expression.

And, of course, we couldn’t say hello to spring without a visit from TE’s hilarious and always adorable Grumplings. I also loved getting to play with her fabulous banner die cut set (eight sizes in one die pack!) and her little speech bubble dies.

Taylor makes wonderful envelope décor stamps, so every envelope has a fun stamped goodie on it as well.

BONUS GOODIE! Each kit also comes with my little Easter giftie to you. You’ll notice the puffy clouds and cheery sunshine dies used on several of the cards. You’ll get that Little Bits die set to keep as a little present from me to you!

New Digital Tutorial Available!

YAY! I’m excited to announce that I have another digital tutorial available in my Etsy Shop.

I’ve had a wonderfully amazing response to the Graphic 45 Winter Wonderland File Folder Folio tutorial so I am working on adding digital tutorials for a few of the previous File Folder Folios I’ve done over the course of this year.

And today, I’m happy to announce that the File Folder Folio #9: Field Study digital tutorial is available in  my Etsy Shop.

Check out the YouTube walk-through to see the full project!


AND! To celebrate Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday, ALL of my Etsy shop tutorials are 20% off. For the other tutorials, enter the code THANKS2017 when checking out. It wouldn’t let me add this tutorial, so I just made it 20% off, no code needed. The price will adjust at checkout. Sale is good though December 1st!

There will be two more NEW File Folder Folios projects coming to finish off 2017. The next one features Graphic 45’s gorgeous (and I mean gor-JUSS) Seasons paper collection.

The File Folder Folio 11: Seasons project will be offered as a digital tutorial. AND, yep, it’s true, I do offer a limited number of full kits for these File Folder Folio projects as well. Kits are only available to my newsletter mailing list (as supplies are VERY limited.)
