Taylor Expressions 10th Birthday Celebration

Yayyyy! I’m so excited to celebrate with Taylored Expression on their 10th Anniversary! They’re having a HUGE party. Almost 40 designers are involved in this celebration!! All of the links to this hop is listed on Taylored Expressions Blog. Follow along as to not miss any of the designers amazing work.

Taylored Expressions new released went live last night and is available now!! Check it out here.

I designed for Taylored Expression from July 2016 to August 2017. I was apart of the Clearly Planned design team. It was amazing to be apart of a brand new team working with brand new stamps and dies. I fell in love with my planner because of this team. I am grateful to Taylor for believing in me.

This planner spread is one of my favorites. It’s from February 2017. I used Clearly Planned Love Struck  stamp set.

What better way to show my love for Taylored Expressions then to make a card!!!

Let’s take a look:

Bloomin birthday

Clean and simple is my style and this stamp set made it easy to accomplish that! This stamp set is called Bloomin Birthday. The simplicity of the flowers is fun.

Take a look inside:

Bloomin Birthday

What’s a greeting card without the sentiment inside. That’s why I added one. It completes the card.

What do you think? I would love to hear in the comment section below.

This week’s cue card:


Take a look at my card:


For this week’s cue card, I went with Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs die and fun foam!! I used a scrap piece of watercolor paper and die cut the word hugs once. Then I die cut a piece of white fun foam three times.  I adhered them together and adhered them to the card front.  I used Altenew Celebrate stamp set to stamp the sentiment in black.

I rounded one corner of the card to finish it off.

Second Post for today
If your looking for the Mix and Match post, click here

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 195 - Sprinkle

Take a look at my card:

Celebrate (CAS)

When I saw the cue card I thought of cupcakes right away!!  I couldn’t find my cupcake stamps but I ran into this Papertrey Ink Good Times stamp set that I never used.  I think I bought this last year and never inked it up.  So I thought this was a perfect time!!

Here is how I created it:

  1. Using the Mini Misti, stamped the dots on the top of the card base using Hero Arts Ombre Butter to Orange Ink.
  2. Using Versafine Black Ink to stamp the sentiment right under the ombre sprinkles.
  3. Round the bottom corners using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Super easy, clean and simple!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Kymona Tracey ← You’re here!

Now onto the dies I did get to play with!!


Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die SetHappy Birthday (TDD)

This was the first die I played with as soon I received my happymail!!  Its the Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die Set. If you follow me, you’ve seen this card before.  I was given permission to showcase this card before the release.  That was exciting.

This die contains 7 dies, but one of the dies have 5 small cupcake toppers.  Super cute and versatile die set.  I love the different frosting topping.


Top Dog Dies Balloon Die SetGo and Celebrate (TDD) Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

Up next is the Top Dog Dies Balloon Die Set!!  How super cute are these cards?  I used the biggest balloon die to create all of my cards. This set has 6 dies ranging from big to little.  I showcased these balloons last week to get you excited about the new release.

I will showcase the other dies on my Wednesday Series!  So stay tune for that.


Now onto the last die set and card!!  This set and card is my favorite of them all.

Take a look:

Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set

Unicorn (TDD)

I just love this card.  I love the colors, the shaker pocket, the splatters and the unicorn!!  I’m super please with how this card turn out.

I used Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set to create my unicorn.  I cut the mane and horn out of my watercolor panels that I created weeks ago.  I have so much of these panels left.  If you haven’t seen them, take a look.

Watercolor pieces

These panels have gone a long way!

To create this card, I die cut the unicorn out of white cardstock and the mane and horn out of the watercolor panel you see above.

To make the shaker window I cut out the white panel.  I used my Fuse tool to create the circle pocket.  I added Lucy Adams Cherry Blossom Sequin Mix to the packet panel.

I used Mama Elephant Sightseeing Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I put my card together using foam adhesive.

Once everything was in place, I used my WPlus9 Bloomsberry Spray Mist to create the splatters on my card.

I have to admit, I sprayed wrong and I thought I messed up the entire card.  The big splatters that you see happened because the ink was seeping through the top.  I didn’t realize it until I went to shake the bottle up and it spilled all over my card front.

It turned out to be a Happy Mistake!! I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Wait!!!!!  Before I go I have a giveaway!!

All you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know if you like unicorns.  This giveaway will end 11:59pm August 7, 2015.

I’m giving away the unicorn die set!!

So what do you think of my card?  Please let me know below.

Don’t forget, the full release is will happen tomorrow, August 9th!  Please be sure to come back so you can see what my fellow DT members and myself have created for this release!!

a2z Scrapbooking Birthday Blog Hop Bash

a2z Birthday

Hello everyone, and welcome to a2z Scrapbooking Birthday Blog Hop Bash!!! You should be arriving from the fabulous Kristina’s blog . If this is your first stop you’ll want to begin at a2z Scrapbooking blog so you don’t miss out on any of the fun and beautiful creations we are sharing today.

I’m super excited to share my card with you today.  I’m bursting out of the seams with excitement.  You want to know why?  Well, check it out:

(Photographing this technique was a bit of a challenge because when I stood the card up the foil looked black so I had to lie it down.)

Happy birthday foilHappy Birthday foil 2 Happy Birthday Foil 3

Yes, Foiling!!!  I did some foiling!!  It was super easy after I got the hang of it!!  I messed up a couple of pieces of cardstock but what is perfection without errors!!!!

My first mistake was putting the foil on my image upside down.  LOL!!!  I ran it throught the laminator a bunch of times and couldn’t figure out what to do.  Then it dawn on me to turn the up face side up!!

Magic!!!  I ran it thought the laminator a couple of times to make sure I was doing it right and BAM!!!  It was!!

Now I need every color they own.  Especially since I bought a laser printer and laminator just for this technique!! Don’t judge me!!!!  I’m addicted to crafts.

So how did I create my card:

1. I printed my Hero Arts Special Birthday Digital image and sentiment from my new Brother Laser Printer. There is a newer model to this printer but I didn’t need up to date since I will just use it to foil.

2. I cut my Deco Foil sheet to fit the size of my sentiment and image.  I place each piece on top of the sentiment and images, gold side up and ran it through my Royal Sovereign 9-inch Laminator. I used regular printer paper to run my cardstock through the laminator.

Note: a2z Scrapbooking will carry the Heidi Swapp Foil which has gold and silver on one sheet!

3.  I attached my foil cardstock to my black card base and that was it!!

Super duper easy.  What do you think?  Will you try foiling now?

Now your next stop will be the talented Lisa from the Purple Place but before you go let me tell you about our GIVEAWAY!!!
