At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a
passion to share the art and joy of paper crafting. In keeping with this idea,
we are proud to announce the Share Joy Challenge! This inspiring weekly card challenge will feature sketches designed by our very own Jen Shults.

With weekly prizes and a monthly Grand Prize, we’re aiming
to have tons of fun! Most important, we want you to share the joy of
cardmaking by sending your creations out into the world.

Join us for the inaugural Share Joy Challenge on Thursday, September 3, 2015!
