I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend! The weather was beautiful here and we enjoyed sharing Easter brunch with several of our neighbors and family members. And now it’s time to gear up for release week at Taylored Expressions! We have a HUGE release planned for you this month, but before we start sneaking peeks at the new stamp sets and accessories tomorrow I want to share a must-have product now available at the TE Store! This is one of those tools I’ve been searching for and I’m so excited to have finally found just what I was looking for. It’s actually easy to use (no manuals required) and at just $5.99 it’s not one of those items you’ll spend a ton of money on and then wonder what to do with it. So what is this must-have tool? It’s called Embellie Gellie….fun name for a fun product. Check out my video below to see just what Embellie Gellie can do for you and your embellishment collection (especially those Tiny Twinkles!). I’m tickled with how this spring card turned out. It started with the idea to decorate my own eggs. I cut out two eggs with the Spellbinders Nested Egg die and then decorated them with Doodlebug rub-ons. Then I grabbed my Embellie Gellie stick and used it to place Tiny Twinkles perfectly on the eggs. To finish it off I colored and cut out several of the spring creatures from the Favorite Peeps set and used them to create a spring scene.
