Brighten Your Birthday Class with Taylored Expressions

Taylor VanBruggen

On Friday night, my local stamp store was fortunate to have Taylor VanBruggen, owner of Taylored Expressions, teach her Brighten Your Birthday class. She was in our area visiting family and came by the shop to provide us with a fun evening of cardmaking using her products.

Here are photos of the four cards we made during the two hour class. Feel free to click on each photo for a larger view.

All of the cards, with the exception of the shaker card, used Copic coloring for the focal image. To keep things simple, we used basically the same colors on all these cards. Here are the colors we used:

I want to share one last photo before I sign off. It’s a close up view of the Presents Cutting Plate we used for the shaker card. Aren’t the details on that tower of gifts amazing?! It also shows a wonderful view of the sequin mix we used for the card. I absolutely adore the square sequins and love the swirling detail on some them!

The class went by so quickly and everyone had a great time. If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from Taylor, I definitely recommend it!

Until next time …
