Taylored Expressions April Pinterest Inspiration


Hello! I wanted to share a card I made for this month's Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration Project:) You can find so many inspiring projects in the TE Pinterest Boards HERE!

I used THIS fun card by Kim for my inspiration today. I used the fabulous Bistro Lights Cutting Plate to cut my strands of lights, and then cut out several colors of TE cardstock with the included circles and adhered them into place. I added some Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle. I then used the Up, Up, & Away Cutting Plate for the top layer. I cut it out of Toffee cs, and then cut the balloons out of Doodlebug Sunkissed dp. Finally, I decided to cut the strings out of some Poppy Seed cs. The sentiment is from the Rock My World stamp set. I love how these two cutting plates look together!

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Taylored Expressions April Release Day: Little Bits of Baby


Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new products are available NOW in the TE Store!

I have one final project to share with you today. I made a couple of tags, one for a baby boy and one for a baby girl:) I used the Build a Tag 2 die set for the layers and the super sweet Little Bits-Onesie die for the onesies. The sentiments are from the new set Little Bits of Baby. I just love these sets because you can mix and match to create your own sentiments!

The base of the tags were cut out of the new TE Double the Joy dp and I embossed the white panels with the new Cable Knit Embossing Folder. Super sweet and so much fun to make!

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Bloomin' Boots & Dies and Lavender Bouquet


Hello! It's Day 3 of peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available tomorrow at 7 AM PST!

My first card features maybe my favorite stamp set from this release-Bloomin' Boots! This set comes with some adorable boot and cloud images and some fun coordinating sentiments! I created a little scene using the Grass Border Die and the raindrops were cut out using the Little Bits-Weather Confetti Dies. I cut out the images using the Bloomin' Boots Dies and the boots were paper pieced using the Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead paper pack. So cute and I ADORE that sentiment! 



For my next card I made a pretty Mother's Day card for my mom:) I used previously released Lavender Bouquet stamp set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I then cut it out with the new Lavender Bouquet Die. I used a mix of dp on my card and added some ribbon and a border cut with the TE Lace Chain Border Die. I just love how it came out!

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Pockets & Pages Stitched Essentials and Shining Star Sentiments


Hello! It's Day 2 of peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, April 9th at 7 AM PST!

For my first project today, I made a fun layout using sweet pictures of my youngest as a baby.


I layered my pictures over some mats that I created using the new Stitched Essentials Dies. The panel with the onesie was made by cutting out a Stitched Essentials mat, then embossing it with the new Cable Knit Embossing Folder. The onesie was cut with a Baby Treat Toppers Die out of Toffee cs and some Double the Joy dp. The banner comes from the Stitched Essentials die set and I stamped a sentiment from the new stamp set Little Bits of Baby. Finally, I added the safety pin using the Little Bits-Baby Confetti Dies.


On this page I also used the Stitched Essentials Dies and once again embossed it with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. I added the banner to the top using the Stitched Essentials Dies and spelled out "Carson" using the Whimsy Alpha Dies. The buggy was cut with the Baby Treat Toppers Dies out of Toffee cs and Double the Joy dp.



For my next project, I made a card using the new Shining Star Sentiments! I started by using the new Shining Star Cutting Plate to cut a piece of Cookie Monster cs. I then layered that over some Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead dp. I used the same dp for the rest of the card. I cut out the larger stars using the TE Star Stacklets, added some ribbon and it was complete! Very simple!
