Announcing the SJC Creative Team!

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!

Blog: Note to Self
With a style that is clean and simple, this busy mom of two turned from scrapbooking to cardmaking in 2010 for its quick, creative outlet. When not crafting or spending time with her family, Lindsay enjoys hiking, biking, camping and loves to read. She loves creating by accenting white space with pops of color.

Blog: Designs by Simone
A longtime papercrafter, Simone began stamping in 2007 by creating invitations for her engagement. A fan of both stamping and die-cutting, her style is crisp and clean. When not creating cards, Simone enjoys creating home decor items with paper, keeping  busy with her identical twin girls, and reading.

    Blog: Handmade by Yuki

    Originally from Los Angeles, Yuki recently relocated to Washington where she trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, hiking, and spending time with her boyfriend. A huge fan of cute critters, her projects feature her coloring skills to really make them shine. After admiring a co-worker's handmade cards, Yuki created her own and has been hooked on cardmaking ever since.

  9. This looks like fun and I love Jen's card "Thanks" Supper cool way to add a sentiment.

  10. I love challenges and what a great idea to have two. I made a sympathy card for a friend who's mother recently passed away. I liked how it turned out so I made another one to have on hand. Sympathy cards are so hard to make, it's nice not to have one on hand.
