Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Pockets & Pages May Script


Hello! I wanted to share this fun gift set I made using some fabulous Taylored Expressions Dies! I started with the little bag using the Sack It To You Die and the new Sack It-Dress For Success Dies. The pieces were cut out of Oreo, Sugar Cube, and some Metallic Neutrals dp. I finished it off with the "Congrats" sentiment which was cut using the Pockets & Pages May Script Dies.

For my gift card holder, I used one of the Small Hinged Tins that you can find in the TE store. I used the Gift Card Frame Die and the Tin Topper Die to decorate the top, then added the Grad Cap and the sentiment using the May Script Dies once again. These dies make it so easy to whip up a nice gift set and they are so fun to play with! Hopefully I've inspired you to create your own:)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!

Taylored Expressions April Pinterest Inspiration


Hello! I wanted to share a card I made for this month's Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration Project:) You can find so many inspiring projects in the TE Pinterest Boards HERE!

I used THIS fun card by Kim for my inspiration today. I used the fabulous Bistro Lights Cutting Plate to cut my strands of lights, and then cut out several colors of TE cardstock with the included circles and adhered them into place. I added some Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle. I then used the Up, Up, & Away Cutting Plate for the top layer. I cut it out of Toffee cs, and then cut the balloons out of Doodlebug Sunkissed dp. Finally, I decided to cut the strings out of some Poppy Seed cs. The sentiment is from the Rock My World stamp set. I love how these two cutting plates look together!

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Taylored Expressions April Release Day: Little Bits of Baby


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

I have one final project to share with you today. I made a couple of tags, one for a baby boy and one for a baby girl:) I used the Build a Tag 2 die set for the layers and the super sweet Little Bits-Onesie die for the onesies. The sentiments are from the new set Little Bits of Baby. I just love these sets because you can mix and match to create your own sentiments!

The base of the tags were cut out of the new TE Double the Joy dp and I embossed the white panels with the new Cable Knit Embossing Folder. Super sweet and so much fun to make!

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 blog roll of our participating designers! Have a great day and happy shopping!

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Bloomin' Boots & Dies and Lavender Bouquet


Hello! It's Day 3 of peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available tomorrow at 7 AM PST!

My first card features maybe my favorite stamp set from this release-Bloomin' Boots! This set comes with some adorable boot and cloud images and some fun coordinating sentiments! I created a little scene using the Grass Border Die and the raindrops were cut out using the Little Bits-Weather Confetti Dies. I cut out the images using the Bloomin' Boots Dies and the boots were paper pieced using the Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead paper pack. So cute and I ADORE that sentiment! 



For my next card I made a pretty Mother's Day card for my mom:) I used previously released Lavender Bouquet stamp set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I then cut it out with the new Lavender Bouquet Die. I used a mix of dp on my card and added some ribbon and a border cut with the TE Lace Chain Border Die. I just love how it came out!
