Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peek: Christmas Doodles and Sack It Reindeer

Hello!  It's New Release Week at Taylored Expressions, and we are kicking the week off with some sneak peeks!  All of the new products will be available on Thursday, October 3rd.

For my first project today, I used a new stamp set called Christmas Doodles, along with a couple of fabulous new dies~the Snowflake Cutting Plate, and the Mix and Match Bows Dies!

There are so many fun and whimsical images in this stamp set, and I adore this sentiment! I decided to make it look like an ornament hanging down, so I used some Circle Nestabilities and added a felt bow with the new Mix and Match Bows Dies. LOVE these amazing dies!!! I made the bow out of some Red Hot Taylored Felt and added some Baker's Twine

The gorgeous border was cut with the new Snowflake Cutting Plate.  This cutting plate is absolutely STUNNING and you are going to swoon when you see some of the Baker's Dozen projects using this plate!  The dp I used is Doodlebug Home for the Holidays

Here are my supplies:

Next up I have a project using the new Sack It Reindeer and Tag Pocket Die!

Isn't he adorable?  Taylor is introducing a fun, new collection based around a gift bag that you can cut with the new Sack It To You Die!  You can decorate the bag with the new Sack It Reindeer, Sack It Penguin, Sack It Snowman, and Sack It Santa Dies.  You can also decorate this awesome Tag Pocket Die with these fun characters like I did today!

I decided to make a tag/gift card holder using the Tag Pocket Die.  This was so quick and easy!  I cut the die and sponged around with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I cut the nose with some more Taylored Felt and added some Kaisercraft Black Pearls to the eyes.  I added a sentiment from the new set Baby, It's Cold Outside which I stamped onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  The snowflake was cut with a Make A Snowflake Die and I added a Kaisercraft Rhinestone to the center.   

To make sure my gift card doesn't fall out, I used a little Poster Putty to tack it into place. Here are my supplies:

Make sure you check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen Blogs for more peeks today, and thank you for stopping by!  Have a terrific Tuesday!
