Exclusive gift for SCT readers from Taylored Expressions!

Exclusive gift for SCT readers from Taylored Expressions!

"Hey there, SCT friends! I'm Taylor from Taylored Expressions and I'm excited to be sharing with you some of our latest Clearly Planned products on a layout I designed for the month of December. This month, we released all new clear, photo-polymer stamps and coordinating dies designed for planners and I was so excited to get inky with them myself! Plus, for fans of Scrapbook & Cards Today, we’ve designed a fun, FREE Holiday Gift Planner download just for YOU!



For my layout, I chose to use our new Christmas Critters stamp set with the coordinating dies to adorn my December layout. I like to color my images with Copic markers, however, these markers will bleed through most planner pages, so I first stamped the images onto cardstock, colored them, and die-cut with the coordinating dies to place in my planner layout.


The Christmas Critters set includes several cute, cuddly critters that are helpful for planning those things we do during the holidays like trimming the tree, baking, taking photos, making lists, and more. I also used our new Mark Your Calendar Holidays to mark December holidays and New Year’s Eve. I can’t wait to start filling in all our Christmas activities like parties, shopping days, and family photos from our vacation!


I was able to download and print the exclusive Holiday Gift Planner and insert it into my December Calendar layout by punching the side with the punch that coordinates with my planner (The Happy Planner.) The gift planner is a great way to record gift ideas and keep yourself on track with purchasing, making, and budgeting for all the gifts under the tree!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you would like to download your FREE Holiday Gift Planner, please visit Taylored Expressions HERE.


But wait! We know that SCT readers are the best crafty friends in the world, so we’d love to giveaway some prizes to help a couple lucky winners get their planners ready for the holidays! Up for grabs are two prize packs, each containing our Clearly Planned Christmas Critters, coordinating Christmas Critters Dies, and Mark Your Calendar Holidays (each prize pack valued at over $50!).


How to Enter: You’ve got two chances to win one of these prize packs! Leave a comment below by Thursday, November 24th. For another chance to win, download Taylored Expressions' FREE Holiday Gift Planner HERE. Two winners will be chosen from all eligible entries! Good luck!

Thank you for joining me today! Wishing you the happiest of holidays!" ~ Taylor VanBruggen

Thank you so much Taylor for this amazing exclusive and a wonderful prize too! SCT friends be sure to download this wonderful holiday resource even if you don't use a Planner! How perfect is it for keeping track of all those holiday purchases.

    So adorable – I am really loving stamps with matching dies – it takes away the fussing cutting that I was never very good at.

    I absolutely love the winter issue of the magazine. I don’t know how I would survive my daily commute to work without it! The Scrapbook and Cards Today is a beautiful thing…
    The Pink Fresh Studio collection has really caught my eye. It has an artsy feel to it, it’s modern and refreshing. I love everything from the colour scheme, the patterned paper with hand-drawn elements, the acetate stickers and washi tape.
    However there is one thing that I love even more, the We Are Memory Keepers’ typewriter. Oh, I want it very badly! It has a very nostalgic meaning to me. It brings me back to (must admit) my distant childhood memories of my dad taking me to work with him. Typing on the typewriter and playing with office stamps used to be my favourite activity. In the child’s eye there was something whimsical about it, the magic of letters popping on the piece of paper, the clicking sound at the end of the row….
    I wish everyone a fun and love filled holiday season!
