Taylored Expressions September Release: Think Happy Thoughts

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions September Release Day! It's TE's sixth birthday! To celebrate, along with new stamps and dies, we are releasing our very own line of patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, as well as our own Embossing Folders! All products are available in the TE store now!

Before you head over to do some shopping, I have a couple more cards to show you. Both cards use Think Happy Thoughts (our special birthday incentive set) and patterned paper and cardstockfrom our new Double the Fun Matched Kit plus TE sequins from Double the Fun girl collection. The first one is a fun shaker card. Shaker cards always take me forever to make and typically there is a mishap or two when I'm making one, and this one was no exception! Still, I wanted to use some of the sparkly fun sequins!

My shaker was made with Pockets & Pages 3x4 Circle Showcase. The "happy" die cut and stamped "for you" are all a part of Think Happy Thoughts. I used the new Zig Zag Embossing Folder on my white background. Here's a detail shot:

My next card uses the "happy" die cut and different stamps from Think Happy Thoughts. I used the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder on this one.

I used the sketch for our Triple S Challenge (more on that below) for my final card. One of the S requirements is a selfie, so here's my selfie with my card:
