Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: You've Got Mail Halloween and Witch's Brew!


Hello! It's been a long time! I took a nice little crafting break for the summer-busy working and hanging out with my kiddos, but it sure felt good to get back into my craft room! Today is day 1 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available on Thursday, August 6th at 7AM PST!

For my first project today, I used the adorable new stamp-You've Got Mail-Halloween! This image is so cute! I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I layered it over some of the new Taylored Expressions Build a Scene-Halloween dp and added the fence using the new Wrought Iron Gate and Fence Dies. I used the Wispy Grass Border Die for the grass and then added the sweet pumpkin from the previously released Little Bits Halloween Scene Dies. The bats are from the Gothic Window Accessories Die Set.


For my next project I used some really fun new sets-the Witch's Brew stamp set along with the new Drink if You Dare die set! I thought it would be fun to make little drink labels/signs that you could place in front of a punch bowl at a Halloween party:) I started with the Take Your Place Die for my base, and cut them out of Pumpkin and Oreo cs. I then embossed the base with the Tangled Webs Embossing Folder.

The fun bottles and spiders were cut using the fab new Drink if You Dare die set and the then stamped using sentiments and images from the new Witch's Brew stamp set. I just love how these came out!

Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration!


Hello! How is your summer going so far? It has been HOT down here in Florida, so popsicles have been a popular treat around here:) For my card today, I was inspired by Wanda's gorgeous card which you can find on the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards HERE

I love how she used the white cutting plate with the green background, so I chose to use the Hexagon Cutting Plate to cut my Sugar Cube cs and layered it over some Peapod cs. I then used the Build a Tag 3 die set to cut my scalloped tag and embossed it with the Bead Board Embossing Folder. Finally, I cut out my popsicle using some Doodlebug Sunkissed dp and the Popsicle Stacklets Dies. The sentiment is from Little Bits of Summer and the layout I used is the Deconstructed Sketch #204.

So this little guy has been keeping us quite busy! This is Oliver and we have been having so much fun with him!



Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure you check out the TE Pinterest Boards for tons of inspiration! Have a great weekend!

Taylored Expressions Release Day: Build a Scene-Underwater


Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that you can start shopping!!!  All of the new products are available HERE!

For my final card from this release, I used the fabulous Build a Scene Underwater Dies to help me create this adorable scene:) I cut out the seaweed and coral using these dies, and then combined them with some darling images from the Under the Sea Stamp Set. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black , colored with Copics, and then cut them out with the new Under the Sea Coordinating Dies.

The bg was created by embossing some Sprinkles cs with the new Bubbles Embossing Folder and the top was cut using one of the new Build a Scene Rolling Waves Dies. Finally, I used some Carta Bella Soak up the Sun dp for the top, and stamped a sentiment from Under the Sea onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.

Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers:) Happy shopping!
