It’s an exciting day today as we kick off 12 Days of A Handcrafted Christmas at Taylored Expressions! Over the next three weeks (Monday – Thursday) you can join me in my stamp studio as I present a variety of handcrafted Christmas gift ideas. Giving handmade gifts is one of my favorite things to do, especially during the holidays! It’s a fun challenge to figure out what each person on my list will enjoy and find purposeful. I also love to incorporate personal details like photographs into my handmade gifts and that’s where we’re going to start today! I hope you find our videos inspirational as you begin your holiday gift projects!

In today’s video I’ll be sharing how I created this photo frame for my sister (don’t worry… she doesn’t read my blog so the surprise won’t be spoiled!). Make sure you pay close attention to find out how you can enter yourself to win the holiday cupcake apron I’m wearing in the video…it’s a handmade original!

We’re offering a special sale during the 12 Days of Handcrafted Christmas featuring many of the products we’ve used! Each day we post a video new products will be added to our 12 Days of Christmas category at the TE Store. Our sale products range from 5% – 25% off. Some quantities are limited and sale prices are only valid while supplies last. Below is a list of products I used in this video and you’ll want to check out our 12 Days of Christmas category HERE!

One more thing before you head out! We’ve designed a 12 Days of Christmas blog badge and we’d love to have you join in the celebration by posting the badge on your blog. We have several blog surfers on the lookout for the badge and we’ll be giving away a few prizes to those who have shared the badge on their blog. You can grab the code from the sidebar or from the “Badges” tab at the top of the blog. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here tomorrow for another handcrafted gift idea!
