Sneak Peeks begin today for the Taylored Expressions June Release which will take place Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. PST.  I’m excited to play along.  It had been so long since I had stamped anything, I honestly wasn’t sure I could.  I had lots of ideas, but felt intimidated to get started.  Like…maybe I had lost it altogether or something?  What a relief, so get going and find that I couldn’t stop!  I actually made more projects than I had planned/hoped!  Oh yea!  I do love to stamp!  How did I forget that?


My job with TE behind the scenes means I get to be involved in the development of a lot of the new stamp sets and dies. So, I often have lots of ideas long before I have any actual products. This month there were several sets that I just had to make the time to play with.  One of those sets is Big Kahuna which is all about surfing and the beach.  My other boss, the Senior Pastor, happens to be a surfer and we often refer to him as the Big Kahuna, so there’s a lot of things about this set that I love!  Today I have two cards to show off Big Kahuna.

The first card shows off the cool surf wagon and coordinating die. I used TE Label Stacklets 6 to create a window in my stamped panel (after I created my own background pattern with the surfboard image).  The road is Trendy Tape. The surf wagon is popped up on foam tape.

“Your wave is waiting!”

And here’s the inside:

My next card features Big Kahuna along with another new stamp set, Big Bold Summer. All the images are from Big Kahuna and the big sentiment is from Big Bold Summer which will be great for scrapbooking as well as cardmaking.

This one just makes me smile.  I used the coordinating die for the palm trees to pop up a pair onto foam tape.  After coloring with copics I added stickles to the palm fronds and tons of Doodlebug sequins along with glass glitter to the beach. I’ve already concocted a story about the couple who owns these beach chairs.  How about you?  What’s your story?

Let’s see what peeks the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up for today:


      I’m so blessed to live so close to the ocean.  I’m not much of a beach-goer as far as sand and waves go, but I do love to sit in a restaurant over looking the ocean – there’s something so soothing about that!  These cards are making me want to go right now!

      Thanks for stopping by.  I’ll be back Wednesday and Thursday with more samples.   🙂
