Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 3

Hello again everyone and welcome to the third day of sneaks for the big release bright and early tomorrow morning!! That's 8 AM PST Thursday, March 3!! So I promised some more 3D projects, and I'm delivering on my promise with this post! I have a couple of projects that make great, sweet gifts for anyone with a sweet tooth in your life...who doesn't know one?! :)

The first set I am just THRILLED to show you is actually a brand new banner stamp called the Pennant a la Carte. And yes...there is totally a coordinating die!!! Check it out!

Ack!! I can't stand it, it's so adorable!!! Ok, let me first start by saying, that I saw these little chocolate carrots in a box at my local grocery store a couple weeks ago and knew I need to alter it for a release project. :) I did NOT make the box that they are perched in...it totally came that way, so score one for not having to do much work!! I simply covered the front with more patterned paper from the Spring Project Pantry...and here's my favorite part....created a fence with last months Picket Fence Border die (so cute!!) and adhered a line of grass in front of it with the Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch.


So I inked up each pennant with the Pink Pastel Chalk ink and the Ice Blue Chalk ink, both in the cat's eye pads for better detail. I then went over the pink pennants with a white gel pen to make little polka dots. I used the Butterflies die again just because...it's spring and spring brings pretty butterflies! :) Pretty darn simple here to put this together and just keep it right in the packaging it's in!

My next project features the new set A Tweet for You, which features the CUTEST favor frame images that, of course, coordinate with the Favor Frame die! Oh my, there are so many adorable little spring images in this set, and I tried to use as many as I could in my project. :)


Can you see all the different frames I used (4 adorable ones!!) and a glimpse of some of the images and sentiments? I love it!!! I used more of the Spring Project Pantry here and simply poured some more of those same Easter jelly beans (are you surprised there's any left?? me too!), into the Test Tubes available right in the store! I topped each tube with a tied bow and then tied my tags right to it. Easy peasy!! Ok, I hope you have gotten some great ideas and be sure to check out more from the Bakers + Taylor!

And here's a list of some of the dies used today!




Thanks so much for your visit and see you bright and early tomorrow morning for the release post!

OMGosh...your little carrot garden is AMAZING!! I love that you inked the banner in two different colors! And your test tube treats as adorable too. The patterned papers in the center of each label and the little icons are a special touch!
