Hey there, it's the first of two spotlight days for Taylored Expressions January Release.  Did you know that all of the stamps and dies you've been seeing the Baker's Dozen use over the last few days are available in the Fresh out of the Oven section of their store?  Yep, head on over and check it out!  Oh, but wait...don't you want to see my projects first?  *wink*

Today I'm spotlighting not one, but TWO projects!  The first is a super fun stamp set called Valentine Doodles.  It makes perfect, quick and easy Valentine's...especially when they're teamed up with the new 3" x 3" Tuck & Close Notecard die.  Have you seen them made up as sucker holders?  ACK...why didn't I think of that!?!  So clever!  Anyway...I made a set of three note cards with a matching box  (perfect to give as a gift).  The box is just big enough to hold all three cards and envelopes, which are available for purchase in the TE store.  I used more pattern papers and card stock from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit.  I love that everything matches perfectly!

Here's the inside...each of the three are exactly the same.  Simple with plenty of room to write!

The next project is a card that spotlights the set called Stuck on has the cutest little hedgehogs EVER!  I shared yesterday that I had narrowed down my list of favorite stamp sets to two...yeppers, this is the other fav!  He was so fun to color and dang it if I don't want to just pinch that rosey little cheek!  LOL!  Check it out, more pattern paper and ribbon from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit!  The heart Nestie was sponged with Lady Bug and Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink while it was still in the die.  Both the hedgehog and sentiment were stamped on the sponged heart then it was ran through a Xyron and sprinkled with Glamour Dust.  It spah-kles!  The hedgehog was stamped a second time, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The heart balloon is covered with Glossy Accents.

Here's the inside...the heart bouquet is the perfect touch!
