Here is my first project for the week... I made miniature easel-fold cards and turned them into our Thanksgiving place cards! I am so pleased with how this idea turned out. Normally, an easel fold card would end up being an A2 card size. I cut my paper down so that my finished cards are 3x3 square. I used two new stamp sets and the new mini leaf dies. These were just so much fun to make!
Here is all the information on the three main parts of my project:
Thankful - the newest set in the Lasting Impressions line. Concepted by Jami and beautifully illustrated by Doug, this set is all about thankful thoughts and counting our blessings. These traditional images can go super cute or very elegant and are perfect for this season and beyond. (set of 15 - full size set)
Mini Leaves Taylored Die set – a set of 4 miniature leaves. Each die also has impressed veins for extra detail! I am going to use this again and again...and not just for fall!
Labels of Love II - To follow up to the popular Labels of Love, we have a new set of labels/frames and the sentiments cover almost every holiday throughout the year. This will be a great set for any stamper to add to their stamping arsenal. This will also make a great Christmas gift for your stamping friends! (set of 27 - full size set) Coordinates with Labels of Love and Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3
Here is my little happy pile of leaves! I used three images from the Thankful set today and I will use another image from that set on Thursday. It's wonderful!
The Labels of Love II set is part of the TE GIving Tree program, which is a program designed to raise funds for a different charity each quarter. For the months of November, December and January, Taylored Expressions will donate $5.00 from the sale of each Labels of Love II stamp set to the Union Rescue Mission. The URM's Mission is to embrace people experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Christ - giving hope and healing for a changed life and helping them find their way home. Taylor's husband, Jon, served at the Union Rescue Mission when they lived in California and saw first hand the impact it had on the lives of the homeless.

As always, some things to remember about TE stamps: They are always pre-cut for you on high quality pink rubber for a great impression. The sets come on a full color panel and store perfecly in specially designed Binder Boxes. CLICK HERE to see the awesome storage system!
