TE Sneak Peek Day 3: Lit Candles and Welcomes

It's the second day of sneak peeks for the September release from Taylored Expressions!!  It's another birthday and autumn day.  These are my favorite cardmaking themes so I'm in seventh heaven!!

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 of the products that I have used are linked at the bottom of this post, but remember that new products aren't available until Thursday, September 1st, 7 a.m. PST.

The birthday celebration includes some fun party favors! These include everything from the exclusive WISH BIG stamp & die combo set to patterned paper packs, ink, and more! Visit the TE Blog for all the special offers and for your chance to win a fun prize!


This month's release includes a fabulous new die set that cuts dimensional numbers and that can be used for candles!

Isn't this fun!!  They are the Candle Numbers. I can see them on cakes (and there's also a cake die set this month!) or just as numbers to signify the birthday, or a year in school, or any other numbered event.  The sentiment is new too - Bright Birthdays - all about the candles.  Not all are sarcastic like the one that I used - but they are all "bright".

This month also includes a fall addition to the door to door series.  Have you been following this growing set of dies.  First was a door and steps.  Basics followed such as a roof and door molding. Then the seasonal sets started with wreaths and hanging planters and snow over the doorway and so much more!  You can find all of them here.  Each set is wonderfully detailed - for example, the door has panels and even a knob and key.  Now we have Door to Door - Fall Decor!

TE Welcoming Doorway

There's so much more detail that you could use in each die set.  I chose not to get too detailed because I wanted the new fall products to shine.  The pot and bow are from the previously release summer set. But the autumn plants, leaves and the wreath - not to mention the squirrel are from the new Fall Decor. Definitely check out the other designers today because there is so much more in this set.  You should see the fabulous autumn swag that goes around the entire door!!

  3. I like the "Light your Candles" card. Great idea! Great job on both cards.

  4. The fire department alert card made me laugh so hard. Love a good sense of humor.
