Day 1 of TE Sneaks for March

Today the Taylored Expressions Baker’s Dozen is showing sneak peeks for March. I’m not part of the design team but today’s set, You're My Hero, is one of two of my Whimsical Wishes sets being released this week. It’s also coming up to one year of Whimsical Wishes so make sure you check out Taylor’s blog later this week for something special! All sets you see today and tomorrow will be available in the TE Store on Friday at 8am PST.

You’re My Hero is the newest set in the TE Giving Tree Program, which donates partial proceeds from sales of a special stamp set to a different charity each quarter. Taylor wanted a “rock star” set in memory of her neighbour Darrin Zimmerman who bravely fought cancer but passed away last fall. You can read more about Darrin on Taylor's blog today. We designed this set with tweens and teens in mind (I have two of them myself)…and the Rock Star in all of us. I expect my 11-year-old twins will get their hands all over this set. It’s perfect for their occasions and projects. I’ve used black and grey ink and masked two of the images from the set in my You Rock in PINK! Card with copic highlights, stitching, sponging and Kaiser pearls.




Please keep in mind that Giving Tree sets (unlike other TE sets) need to be trimmed when you get them. They are the same deeply etched rubber on EZ Mount. Taylored Expressions will donate $7 from the sale of each set to CureSearch: "CureSearch unites the world's largest childhood cancer research organization, the Children's Oncology Group, and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation through their mission to cure childhood cancer. Research is the key to the cure."

Thanks for stopping by! Now go and see how the Baker's Dozen rocked this set...
