Taylored Epressions: Give Thanks!

Hello! The Baker's Dozen was challenged to create a card this month using Paper Piecing! I always love the look of paper piecing and it gives me a chance to use my beloved dp :)

I chose to use this darling stamp-You've Got Mail-Fall for my card today. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Sugar Cube cs, and then paper pieced it using TE Build a Scene dp and some TE Build a Scene Halloween dp. I also used some Earl Grey and Watermelon cs

I added the grass using the Wispy Grass Border Die and some Peapod cs. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and popped it up using foam tape. The Toffee background was embossed with the Scattered Leaves Embossing Folder and the sentiment is from the Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins Stamp Set. Such a fun technique!

That's it for me today:) Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your hump day!

Taylored Expressions November Release Day: Little Bits Mixer

Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new products you've seen over the past few days are now available in the TE Store!

For my final project today, I used several new products. I started by using the new Basketweave Cutting Plate to create my base-LOVE! What a cool look! I then used the new Stitched Banner Stacklets to cut a piece of Echo Park Simple Life dp. I added the square and circle panels using the new Stitched Square Stacklets and the previously released Stitched Circle Stacklets. I embossed the circle with the new On the Spot Embossing Folder and then added the darling Little Bits Mixer as my focal point. I used the Stitched Banner Stacklets once again for the sentiment which comes from the Life is a Kitchen Stamp Set. Finally, I added the sweet border using the Lace Chain Border Die and finished it off with some red pearls. I love the vintage feel of this card:)

Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Calendar Critters!

Hello! It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and all of the new products will be available tomorrow, November 5th at 7AM PST!

For my project today, I created a calendar using the ADORABLE new set Calendar Critters along with the coordinating Calendar Critter Dies, and the awesome new Build a Scene Calendar Dies! This stamp set includes a super cute character for each month of the year along with some fun sentiments!

I used the TE 2016 3x4 Calendar and added the stitched frames and scenes using the Build a Scene Calendar Dies. For January I also added a tree using an Evergreens Die and the snowflakes using Little Bits Snowflake Confetti. For February I used Little Bits Love Confetti.

For March I used Little Bits Rainbow's End and Shamrocks and for April, the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds and Little Bits Weather Confetti along with the Build a Scene Calendar Dies.

For May I used Little Bits Flip Flops for the flowers, and for June the Wave Border Die.

I used the Build a Scene Calendar Dies for July and August.

For September I added the tree using the Build a Scene Tree Dies and October I added the bat using Gothic Window Accessories. The grass and fence are from Build a Scene Calendar Dies.

Finally for November I added the pumpkin using Little Bits Halloween Scene and for December the tree is from Little Bits Christmas Tree.

This is such a fun project and would make such an awesome gift!!!  I found the cute holder at Hobby Lobby and thought it was perfect with the clip and the basket for holding the other months:)
