Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1


Welcome to the new year everyone!  I'm excited for what this new year will bring, and I'm even more excited about this jam packed January release at Taylored Expressions!  There are a bunch of new products being released, and all of us on the Baker's Dozen will be showing bits and pieces of it, so you will definitely want to hop around and see what we have to offer!  In a nutshell, you will find: 2 new stamp sets, 2 a la Carte sets, 7 new dies and die sets, plus a brand new Project Pantry!  That's a lot to show, right?!  Well let me just dive right in with my project for today. :)


This month, the TE release has a focus on Love, and let me tell you, Valentine's is one of my favorite holidays for the year.  Oh who am I kidding?  It's another excuse to eat more candy and chocolate, LOL!  Anyway, I am featuring the new a la Carte called, 1 Corinthians 13:13.  I just adore this verse.  It can definitely be used for any kind of projects beyond just a nice Valentine sentiment.  The font on "love" is so delicate and pretty and I love how large the entire stamp is...just perfect as a focal point!  This a la Carte comes to you from the Lasting Impressions line of stamps. 


I stamped the verse on Choice Buttercream cardstock with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and then die cut with Labels 14.  The patterned paper came from the lovely Authentique Splendid Bundle.  I also got inspired by Sankari, and used a Cream Viva Decor Pearl Pen to make accent dots all around my card.  Don't laugh...I haven't mastered dot making yet, LOL!


So that is all that I have for you today, but be sure to see all the various projects we have to offer you!
