Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 3!


Welcome back everyone! So glad you are here to see Day 3 of sneaks of all the goodies that will be released Friday morning at 8 AM PST! I'm especially excited for today's sneaks as we are showing off sets that celebrate my most FAVORITE holiday....Halloween!!!! I've already gotten some Halloween decor pulled out and I am just itching to put it out! Think my neighbors might think I'm crazy?? :)

There are TWO sets that the ladies are sneaking for you today, and I get to sneak another addition to the "Hangin' out" line of stamps called Hangin' Out - Wicked Wardrobe!! I LOVE IT!!! This set is going to be great for cards, treats, AND scrapbooking! Let me just show you, yes? :)


Isn't that just the cutest witch and witch's dress you've ever seen?!! I love her!! And this can't go without mentioning, but the extremely talented Nancy McKinney also illustrated this! I used the coordinating Fright Night Project Pantry kit on this card and it features the Halloween line of patterned paper from Echo Park....yep, you won't be able to resist this kit and stamps...in my personal opinion! :) Ahhh...I just love everything about the set AND the kit. The ribbon is new and in the kit and it is scrunchy (just the way I like 'em!) and just ties GORGEOUSLY! Am I gushing?? Ok, maybe a little bit, because it just doesn't stop there!

You see, while I was on one of my (many) trips to Michael's, I picked up this most adorable little wood coffin...just screeching at me to alter and make pretty. Ok I said to myself, I am up for the challenge!

I used more of the kit (paper and ribbon) to embellish it up and a leftover spritzed up doily from my stash....easy peasy! Now....what to put inside this little package of wicked cuteness?

Why, more stamped and colored pieces from the set!! You see, you can dress your witch in a couple of different outfits and accessories and I thought it would be fun for my little Catie to play with. :) Ahhh....remember playing with those dress-up paper dolls as a kid? I remember that my most FAVORITE one as a child was the Princess Di one. Oh, I held those papers delicately and loved dressing her in her ginormous flowing wedding gown.

So yeah...can you tell I adore this set AND the coordinating kit?? I can't wait to play with it more...be prepared for more Halloween, MUAHAHAHAHA!! :)

Now, I can't wait to see what the rest of the talented ladies have to share with us! Let's check it!
Thanks so much for your visit and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for the release and shopping!!! :)
