Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Crafty Petites


Welcome back everyone! So glad you have stopped by for Day 2 of sneaks for the big December release of Taylored Expressions stamps tomorrow, Friday December 3! I hope you were excited about yesterday's sneaks and fully surprised of the new texture plate. Didn't see it coming, did ya!? :) Well, Taylor has yet ANOTHER new concept with this month's release and that is of new Petite Sets! Today, the Bakers Dozen, along with Taylor and our lovely Illustrator for these sets, Nancy McKinney, are going to show you FOUR variations of the Crafty Petites sets...a set focused on Sewing, Knitting, Baking, and our beloved Papercrafting. Now, I just KNOW you know SOMEONE that is into any (or all!!!) of these hobbies, and these little sets make the perfect gift for them! Great little stocking stuffers too, right? :) And with a price point of only $7.95, it will be hard to resist! And if you are new to Taylored Expressions, Taylor has created a video for you highlighting the different sized sets that she carries as well as showing that deeply etched high quality rubber! You can view it HERE.
Now you are probably itching to see some samples now, yes?


I just HAD to make something with the Sew Happy Crafty Petite set. :) A little card with coordinating dress form made with all the girlie things I just love. Yes...more Thrift Shop papers...I can't help it, I love them!


I created a little 4"x 4" card using some fun embellishments from the TE store as well as two other TE stamp sets...the border from Take Note and the faux stitching from Borderliscious. My metal flower was originally a white one, but I simply colored it with a Copic R83 marker and made it my own kind of pretty pink. :)

And finally my favorite little 3D item....created from a dress form I cut off my Silhouette. I adhered it to some chipboard to give it some sturdiness and then embellished from there. I think it's a nice little touch to go with the card...maybe even a tag to add to a bag?? And yep, more Thrift Shop paper here. :) So what do you think? Pretty cute?? Let's check out what everyone else has created with the four different petites...I know they will knock your crafty socks off!
