Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Take Note

Hey everyone! I survived CHA Chicago and I finally am feeling refreshed and re-energized! I had an absolute BLAST meeting and hanging out with everyone...so much so, it really deserves it's own post. :)

But I am here today, because it is that time again...time for another Taylored Expressions release this Friday!! If you were a lucky attendee of CHA, you probably already have this set (and the coordinating dies...yes, I said DIES!!) in your hot little hands! So, to whet your appetite (for those that couldn't attend), the Baker's Dozen and I are sneaking a new set called Take Note with it's coordinating dies.!

Oh I just love it!! I love the matchy matchy stamps with dies! I stamped the large label with Colorbox Olive Pastel ink. I swear, these inks are my new favorites!! They just stamp the images gorgeously! The dies are sooo easy to use! Die cutting them (after stamping your image first) is completely fail proof! You'll see when you get your dies in person. :)


I decided on creating a sketch book for my project. :) I must admit, this sketch book literally fell into my hands at CHA and I have every intention of gifting this right back to it's rightful owner! I hope she enjoys it's altered state. All the papers are from the Girl's Paperie...much like my last post! :) I hope you all aren't tired of it yet, lol.


And to switch gears, I have a totally clean and graphic card. I was able to get my hands on another one of the new dies...one that matches a previously released set, Garden Party Blooms! I only used one of the dies, but trust me, there are more! Here's my attempt at clean and simple....


I stamped the background with the Cloudy Days Background in, once again, my new favorite ink, Colorbox Ice Blue ink. I accented my die cut sun with buttons for a little bit of pop. :)

So are you as excited about the dies as I am??? Well let's check out what the rest of the team is sneaking for you...I can't wait to see! Also, don't forget to tune back in tomorrow for another sneak of another NEW set!

See you tomorrow and thank you so much for your visit!!
