Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peek: Butterfly Parade and Zinnia Bouquet!


Hello and welcome to Day 1 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!  This month is filled with sooooo many goodies, because we didn't have a release last month!  You are just going to LOVE all the new stamps and dies and they will be available on Thursday, August 8th! 

For my first project today, I used a fun new butterfly set called Butterfly Parade!  I just love all the cool patterns in these images:

I stamped my butterflies with some fun, bright colors and then cut them out with the coordinating Butterfly in the Sky Dies.  There are two beautiful sentiments that come with this set, and I just adore the wavy, swirly font~gorgeous!  I kept this card very CAS, but this set has so much versatility!  Wait until you see what the rest of the DT came up with!


Next up I made a card using this GORGEOUS new Zinnia Bouquet!  Isn't it just perfect with that bucket?~LOVE!!!  The image was cut out with one of the new Label Stacklets 4 Dies which is such a cool shape!  I decided to use some gingham dp from My Mind's Eye Collectable Unforgettable and I also added the pretty border with the Lace Chain Border Die.  Here's a close up:

Make sure you check out more peeks from the rest of the DT and I'll be back tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day:)
