Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration!


Hello! How is your summer going so far? It has been HOT down here in Florida, so popsicles have been a popular treat around here:) For my card today, I was inspired by Wanda's gorgeous card which you can find on the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards HERE

I love how she used the white cutting plate with the green background, so I chose to use the Hexagon Cutting Plate to cut my Sugar Cube cs and layered it over some Peapod cs. I then used the Build a Tag 3 die set to cut my scalloped tag and embossed it with the Bead Board Embossing Folder. Finally, I cut out my popsicle using some Doodlebug Sunkissed dp and the Popsicle Stacklets Dies. The sentiment is from Little Bits of Summer and the layout I used is the Deconstructed Sketch #204.

So this little guy has been keeping us quite busy! This is Oliver and we have been having so much fun with him!



Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure you check out the TE Pinterest Boards for tons of inspiration! Have a great weekend!

Taylored Expressions Release Day: Build a Scene-Underwater


Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that you can start shopping!!!  All of the new products are available HERE!

For my final card from this release, I used the fabulous Build a Scene Underwater Dies to help me create this adorable scene:) I cut out the seaweed and coral using these dies, and then combined them with some darling images from the Under the Sea Stamp Set. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black , colored with Copics, and then cut them out with the new Under the Sea Coordinating Dies.

The bg was created by embossing some Sprinkles cs with the new Bubbles Embossing Folder and the top was cut using one of the new Build a Scene Rolling Waves Dies. Finally, I used some Carta Bella Soak up the Sun dp for the top, and stamped a sentiment from Under the Sea onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.

Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: Summer Sunnies and Little Bits Fruit Basket!


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

I have a couple more cards to share with you today. The first uses a fab new die called Summer Sunnies! Aren't these sunglasses so cool?! The die is built so you can easily turn these into shaker sunglasses if you want, but I chose to go the traditional route by cutting the frame out of Cookie Monster cs and the shades out of Poppy Seed cs. The sentiment comes from the Big Bold Summer Stamp Set and I used some Carta Bella Soak Up the Sun dp. The border was cut with the new Rainbow Scallop Border Die.


For my next card I created a fun little scene which was so easy to do with the new On the Line Cutting Plate! This fun plate cuts out the trees, and comes with the additional dies to create the textured leaves-LOVE!!!! I added some grass using the Wispy Grass Border Die and the clouds were cut with a Build a Scene Rolling Clouds Die. Finally, I used the new Little Bits Fruit Basket and Little Bits Fruit Dies to create my basket of fruit! I embossed the bg using the new Bead Board Embossing Folder and stamped a sentiment from the coordinating Berry Special Stamp Set! So fun! All of the new TE Dies this month are amazing!!!
