Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek 1: Love Lifts You

It's day 1 of a love-themed release from Taylored Expressions!!  I've had so much fun getting ready for this release. Cards came together easily and I like the results! That definitely says something about the products because I typically struggle over my cards.

All the products that I have used are linked at the bottom, but remember that new products aren't live until Thursday, March 5th, 7 a.m. PST.  Also, be sure to check all of the other designers starting on the Taylored Expressions blog because we all were assigned different products to show off.

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win.

My first card uses the set Carried Away along with its coordinating die for the balloons.  This is such a fun and unique set - I've never seen anything like it!  There's a flying bicycle, a flying house and a kissing couple - with masses of tiny balloons!

Taylored Expressions Carried Away

I'm using the previously released Build a Scene - Rolling Cloud die.  The cardstock is Salt Water Taffy, Sprinkles and Cherry Pop.

Check out these tiny balloons.  And if you hate the idea of cutting and gluing that many balloons - the stamp set comes with tiny balloon stamps instead!

Continuing with the love theme, the next card is a more elegant.  I'm using the new Little Bits - Party Dress die along with the Little Bits - Hanger die.  For the background, I used Toffee on Toffee with the new Bold Lace Cutting Plate.  You're getting a sneak of sneak with the frame - it's the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate which won't be introduced until tomorrow.

Taylored Expressions Party Dress

The other exciting new products on this card are the Metallic Neutral Cardstock.  It has a wonderful, elegant shimmer but isn't glittery.  The paper pack includes five metallics - I'm showing the silver and gold here, along with the coordinating Wedding Sequin Pack.

The sentiment is from the previously released Many Minis - Occasions and the Designer Mini Tags.

I hope you like what you have seen so far - be sure to check out all of the other designers starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.  There is so much new product in each release that everybody has a different assignment.  If you stop with me, you won't see it all!!


Love Lift You Up

Two fabulous cards, Kim. One rather whimsical and yes, I'd say the other is elegant. I'm loving that sneak peak frame. Can't wait to see more of it.

Using all those balloons attached to a bike is so fun and whimsical. I love that Bold Lace Cutting Plate and the metallic cardstock. I sure wish I could buy it while I'm Blog Hopping--I don't want to forget.
