Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: You've Been Framed-Christmas and Mischief Maker Pilgrim


Hello! It's Day 3 of peeks from Taylored Expressions! Tomorrow is release day and all of the products will be available at 7AM PST!

For my first peek today, I used the new You've Been Framed-Christmas Dies! These coordinate with the Test Tube Caddy Die that was released last month:) I just ADORE making these fun little gifts!

To start, I cut the Test Tube Caddies out of Chocolate Truffle, Peapod, Salt Water Taffy, and Cherry Pop cs. I embossed the back with the new Winter Flurry Embossing Folder and used the new Ice Border to add icicles to the top.



The large snowflake was cut with a die included in the Mitten Garland Die Set and I added a button to the center. I cut the frames with Peapod, Sugar Cube, Chocolate Truffle, and Salt Water Taffy cs then layered them over various Gingerbread Lane dp. I added some pearl and rhinestone accents.



Finally, I cut some tags using Tag Stacklets 1 Dies, and stamped the sentiment from Little Bits of Christmas. I then embossed the tags with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder and sponged with green and aqua ink. I tied them on with some Red/White Baker's Twine.


Next up is this cutie, Mischief Maker-Pilgrim! I stamped her and the pumpkin with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I then cut them out and popped them up over an oval cut out of Sugar Cube cs and embossed with the Zig Zag Embossing Folder. I used some Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn dp and the layout I used is the Deconstructed Sketch #170

Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks: Poinsettia Bouquet Die and Little Bits Holly


Hello! It's Day 2 of peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, October 2nd at 10 AM PST:)

For my first project today I used a previously released set called Poinsettia Bouquet along with the new coordinating Poinsettia Bouquet Die. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I put it over a panel that was cut with Label Stacklets 6 Dies and embossed with the TE Zig Zag Embossing Folder. The bg was embossed with the fabulous new Sheet Music Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment onto a new Label Stacklets 9 Die. Here's a close up:


I added some Stardust Stickles to the centers for a little shimmer which every Christmas card needs, don't you think?


Next up I have a set of tags that I made with a new sentiment set called Little Bits of Christmas along with the new Little Bits Holly Die

The tag base was cut with a Tag Stacklets 2 Die and I lined the bottom with some Gingerbread Lane dp. I stamped the sentiments with green and red ink and added some ribbon. The circular panel was embossed with a snowflake using the Winter Flurry Embossing Folder and the holly was cut with Red Hot and Grass Green Taylored Felt. I also used the Tag Reinforcements Dies to make my hole and added some ribbon and twine to the top. So festive!
