Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Spooky Trees Accessories!


Hello! I have a fun little Halloween tag to share with you today using the fun Spooky Trees Accessories Dies from Taylored Expressions:)

I started by cutting out my tag using the Build a Tag 5 Dies. I cut the base out twice, once with Oreo cs and once with Build a Scene Halloween dp. Next I cut out the sky layer using another one of the Build a Tag 5 Dies and some more Build a Scene Halloween dp. I added the wolf cut out of Toffee cs using the Spooky Trees Accessories Dies and sponged around it with tea dye distress ink. I then used a circle dye to cut out the moon and added the bats from Spooky Trees Accessories to complete my scene! Super quick and easy, and I love how it came out! These would be super easy to mass produce!

Thanks for stopping by today:) I've been busy working on projects for Taylored Expressions Release Week next week! You are going to LOVE what we have in store:) Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Taylored Expressions August Pinterest Inspiration-Home is Where the Haunt Is


Hello! I wanted to share a card I made using some fabulous inspiration from the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards! I used Taylor's amazing Frightful Night Card for my inspiration today. I just love her sponged (or maybe airbrushed) sky!

I decided to use this awesome die called 13 Dead End Drive as the focal point of my card. Love this die! It creates an instant scene! I layered it over a sky sponged with purple ink using the Cloud Border Die as my template. I added the fence using the Spooky Fence Border Die and some gray grass using the Wispy Grass Border Die


The bats are from the Spooky Trees Accessories Dies and the pumpkin is from the Gothic Window Accessories Dies. The sentiment is from the A Spooky View stamp set.

Make sure you check out the TE Pinterest Boards for more amazing inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday:)

Your Next Stamp August Release Sneak Peek!



Hello! I'm joining the Your Next Stamp crew this month for a special Birthday Blog Hop! The hop will begin tomorrow, August 9th, but today I have a fun sneak peek to share with you:)



I made a darling card using the super sweet new set, Phoebe With Wagon! This set is so fun, because it comes with different images that you can put in the wagon. I couldn't resist this darling puppy, and then I wanted to use the birthday cake since we're celebrating YNS's 6th Birthday!

I stamped all my images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut them out and popped them up with foam tape. I created a little scene by die cutting some grass using the Spring Grass Die and the sun from the Summer Fun Die Set. I stamped the sentiment inside:


Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to see more peeks, head on over to the YNS Blog and I'll be back tomorrow for the birthday hop!

Taylored Expressions August Release Day: Eventful-Halloween/Eventful-Fright Night


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

I have one last project to share with you today using the new Eventful-Halloween stamp set and the Eventful-Fright Night die. I started by using a piece of dp from the Build a Scene Halloween Paper Pack. I added the moon by cutting out a circle nestability and then added the spooky scene cut with the Eventful-Fright Night Die. Such a quick and easy way to create a scene-perfect when making invites! I also added the fun witch using the Little Bits Witch Die. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using one of the Eventful-Halloween stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 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!

Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Sack It-Spider and Toil & Trouble


Hello! It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available tomorrow, August 6th at 7 AM!

For my first project today, I used the adorable new addition to the Sack-It series, Sack It-Spider! This little guy is so fun and so easy to put together! 

I cut the body out of Jelly Donut cs using the Sack It To You Die and the legs using the Sack It-Spider Dies. I then embossed them with the new Weathered Embossing Folder. I added the eyes and mouth cut out of Oreo and Sugar Cube cs and then the little pumpkin and the sentiment are from the new Tag-a-long Halloween Stamp Set. The web is from the new Spooky Arbor Accessories Dies. I just love putting these little characters together and people love receiving them!



For my next project I created some spooky Halloween tags using the new Build a Tag 5 Dies and a previously released set called Toil & Trouble along with the new coordinating Toil & Trouble Dies



For my first tag, I cut the base out of Oreo cs and layered it over some Sugar Cube cs. I stamped the candelabra with purple ink and cut it out with the coordinating die. I then stamped the skull and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and hand cut them out. I layered them over some Build a Scene Halloween dp, added the ribbon and twine and it was complete! Love this one!


For my second tag, I cut the base out of Pumpkin cs and layered over Sugar Cube cs. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut the bottles using the coordinating Toil & Trouble Dies and hand cut the raven. I popped them up with foam tape over more Build a Scene Halloween dp, then added the ribbon and twine. So fun!
