Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek 1: Be Mine with PB&J

It's day 1 of sneak peeks for the December release from Taylored Expressions!!  Today's featured products are all about love and Valentines.  I have love banners, coffee and donuts, bacon and eggs, and PB&J!

Be sure to check out all of the other designers starting on the Taylored Expressions blog because there is just too much for one designer to show off in just a few days.

All the products that I have used are linked at the bottom, but remember that new products aren't live until Thursday, December 10, 7 a.m. PST.

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.

As I was planning all of the cards that I wanted to make for this release, I realized that none of them were masculine.  Men and boys get Valentines too!  So to show off the new Love & Be Mine Banners (and also one of the new Skinny Mini Valentine Borders), I added a cute little image from the previously released Love Makes the World Go 'Round.  (This is an older stamp set, but it's making an appearance this release too since matching dies are being added!!!)

TE Love & Be Mine Banners

The Love & Be Mine Banners come in a single set. The heart banner is one of four banners called Skinny Mini Valentine Borders.

Now for a card that is super silly and completely sweet!!!

TE We Go Together 2

The basis of this card is the new set We Go Together. The set not only has these single sentiments, but it also has some full sentiments, but all with the go-together theme, for example, "you're the burger to my fries"!  LOVE them!  But I wanted to play with all of the Little Bits so I opted for a very tall card (fits in a legal size envelope), just so I could use a variety of them.

TE We Go Together 1

The first is the new die set Little Bits - PB&J.  BTW - although I didn't use them here, be sure to check out the new die set Little Bits - Spare Parts which is full of little arms and legs and faces for the little bits. The packaging shows the spare parts on these slices of bread - SO cute!

Then there's the new die set Little Bits - Bacon & Eggs.

The donut is an existing die, Little Bits - Donut, but the coffee is a new die set Little Bits - Coffee To Go.

Did you notice the stitched hearts at the bottom? Those are new too - Stitched Heart Stacklets. They are particularly nice because the previously released Heart Stacklets layer inside this set!

Those are my Valentines for today!  I hope you are inspired to come back tomorrow and be sure to head over to the Taylored Expressions blog to see all of the sneak peeks for today and be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a prize.


Remember that links to new products will not work until the release on Thursday.
