Happy Saturday! I actually slept in this morning and woke up to the smell of cherry turnovers in the oven! I can’t think of a better start to the weekend…well, I suppose waking up to cherry turnovers in Hawaii would be just slightly better. *wink*

Today I want to share with you “The Best of the Best”, my favorite release project from each of our fabulous Baker’s Dozen designers! Each month our team uses TE stamps to create beautiful works of art and inspire you to do the same!

Jodi’s ‘pick of the patch’ card was my pick among her fabulous patch of cards. Her coloring on the pumpkins from Gobble Gobble is beautiful and I love that she popped them out for dimension!

If you missed Regina’s Thanksgiving table setting using Gobble Gobble you simply must check it out! Her pop-out project is complete with pilgrim Cuppie’s in the Mayflower…how cute is that!?

Karen G.’s Winter Wonderland card is stunning! The simplicity makes it easy to mass-produce, but it packs a big punch with the beautiful bow and die cut snowflake embellishment!

Donna captured simple with her Winter Wonderland creations too. I love the non-traditional color combination and the sweet little peek-a-boo treat that she packaged up!

Danielle created the most amazing Christmas organizer with the Take Note Holidays set! I love the pearls dots around the frame! And the inside of the organizer is even more fabulous than the outside!

Karen M. got clever with her Merry Little Cocktail set and created a peppermint candy wreath with holly accents. I love her out-of the box thinking and the rich color combination on her card!

Tori’s Penguin Pals card is so cute! I love the music notes stamped in the background and the holly and berries is the perfect touch!

Jackie’s smoochey Penguin Pals are just the cutest with their sparkly accessories and she paired them so fabulously with the snowflakes from Winter Wonderland!

Sankari always creates such amazing scenes with the Hangin’ Out stamps! I love the embossed polka dots (looks like falling snowflakes!) and her signature liquid pearl dots put this card in the fabulous category!

OMGolly…check out this sweet card by Charmaine! I love how she used the Hangin’ Out set with such non-traditional Christmas colors! So bright and cheerful, yet icy and wintery at the same time!


Melissa captured the beauty of Sparkle and Cheer with her chic vintage creation. I love how she stamped right over the ledger patterned paper on the image panel!

Our Guest Designer Barbara put her own chic spin on Sparkle and Cheer with her beautifully decorated tree and a fancy bow!

We also had two special guests joining us this release:

Our Whimsical Wishes illustrator, Nancy, created this beauty using the reindeer image from Sparkle & Cheer. I just love that fun sentiment shaker with seed beads inside!

Our marketing coordinator, Jami, created this adorable Penguin Pals card! I love the sparkly Christmas tree lights and the rhinestones she added to the sentiment!
