Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek 1: Happy Trails & Lucky Lives

It's day 1 of sneak peeks for the February release from Taylored Expressions!!  This release is all about spring, St. Patrick's Day and Easter. Today I am focusing on Easter set that also has great options for use throughout the year and I'm "lucky"!

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, February 4, 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.

This card uses the new Bunny Tails & Happy Trails. It's a wonderfully designed set in that it has Easter images and sentiments, but also general images and sentiments so it can be used year-round. I went for the general image (although I'll definitely pull out the bunny in an egg car and the chick in a carrot car for my Easter cards!)  


I pulled out the Build a Scene - On the Road die and some cheerful paper from the Build a Scene Paper Pack and that's all this took.  For the right person, this image and sentiment will bring a huge smile when it's most needed!


I also used this next product in a different way - it's the Block Party - Lucky die. Given the time of year it is, this would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Taylored Expressions already has a variety of St. Patrick's Day images and sentiments (with even more this release) and dies such as shamrocks and leprechauns and pots of gold. But I have a long-standing love affair with the Potty People and decided to use the Lucky die for a love card!  


The bottom line is part of another stamp - also called Lucky. I just inked the bottom line and added it below the die cut.  I love those Potty People - I hadn't yet used the cat and dog but they are really sweet and perfectly rounded out my little scene.


As always with Taylored Expressions, it's a fun release. There are stamps and dies, cute to elegant, goofy to Christian - I LOVE it!  Be sure to check out all of the other designers listed on the TE blog and leave a comment while you are there for a chance to win prizes. Come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks.


Links to new products will not work until release day on February 4th.
