CHA Make and Take: Taylored Expressions
The second best thing about going to the CHA Supershow (after getting to meet so many amazingly talented people) was the make and takes!! Several of the stamp companies had free make and takes at their booths (and many also had make and takes at the splitcoast booth!!) I think the company I did the most with was Taylored Expressions, since they had 6 different ones at their booth, plus one at the SCS booth. I did a total of 3 of theirs (would have done more but Jackson was not that patient!!)I had never bought anything from TE before CHA, but don't worry...I fixed that right quick!! In fact, I bought several of the stamps they used for their make and takes (yes, their marketing worked great on me!) and can't wait to get them inky!! This card is one of my favorites, and I just love the sentiment that goes with this goldfish bowl. My friend Rachel helped me color the image (since Jackson was VERY fussy during this one!) and I love how it turned out! She did a fabulous job considering this was her first time using Copic markers. I can't wait to give this card to my husband - he'll love it!I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. We aren't peeking anything for Paper Pretties this week since we combined our January and February releases into one...so our next release will be March 1st. But be sure to check out the great sale going on (all acrylic stamps are currently 35% OFF - but this won't last much longer!) and the new DIGI stamps we have. Some of our older sets are being retired out of acrylic and rubber, but will stick around as Digital stamp sets, so you can still have all your old favorites.
