TE Sneak Peek Day 1: Cozy Cottages


February1
Welcome to Day 1 of Sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  Today we are sharing projects made with our new set in the TE Giving Tree program!  I love that Taylor releases a new stamp set every quarter to donate a portion of the sale to various charities!

When you purchase Cozy Cottages (which was illustrated by Nancy McKinney, from Feb-April) you'll be helping to support the Habitat for Humanity!
Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Churches, community groups and others have joined together to successfully tackle a significant social problem – decent housing for all.  Habitat for Humanity is a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing, having  built more than 350,000 houses, sheltering more than 1.75 million people in more than 3,000 communities worldwide.  Please visit http://www.habitat.org/ for more information on this incredible charity.  Remember the TE Giving Tree stamp sets are the only TE sets that come in sheet form and need to be trimmed.  This allows us to donate more to charity.

Here is the card I made using Cozy Cottages and 3 Taylored Dies: Whimsy Tree, Picket Fence and Cloud Duo.  This card was a lot of fun to make, especially when I started adding glitter with stickles to the dies!  I used my new Grand Nestabilities Scallop Square die (the smallest) which measures 4.5” so now I have more options for square cards!
