Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peek: Birthday Treat Toppers and Big Bold Birthday!


Hello!  We have a very special release this month at Taylored Expressions because TE is celebrating it's 5TH BIRTHDAY~WooHoo!  What does this mean?  Well, we have some super fun party games that you can play along with every day this week for your chance to win TE gift certificates!  All of the new release products will be available on Thursday, September 5th:)


For my first project today, I used some FABULOUS new dies that I'm so excited about!!!


I made the toppers using the new Birthday Treat Toppers dies!  LOVE THEM!!! These were so quick and easy to make, and don't they look amazing? I just cut the images out with different colors of cs, layered them over a white circle, and then layered that over a scalloped circle that I cut with my Totally Tags Die. I attached them onto some Doodlebug Pixies~again, LOVE!

For the base, I used the new Cupcake Wrap Die!  This die is so cool, because it cuts a slot and a hook, so you don't need any adhesive to close them!  My daughter is going to be 9 next month, so this was a trial run for her birthday cupcakes:)  I used the Poster Graphic #'s Dies to cut out the 9 in the center cupcake. I just love how they came out, and she did too!



For my second project I played along with today's party game~Tic Tac Toe!



All you have to do to play along, is choose 3 in a row and create a card!  You can find the full details on Taylor's blog HERE!

I chose to Use Rhinestones, Make a Birthday Card, and Use Ribbon:



I made a couple of CAS birthday cards using the new set Big Bold Birthday and the new Bracket Notecard Die-such a great shape!  I added some ribbon (and baker's twine shhh) and a little rhinestone to the dots of the i's.  The dp I used is Doodlebug Fruit Stand.  




Make sure you check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs for more sneak peeks today, and have fun playing along with the Tic Tac Toe game!  Thanks for stopping by:)
