TE Sneak Peek Day 3: Grumplings and A Big Hello

It's day 3 of sneak peeks for the January release from Taylored Expressions!! We have new Grumplings - YAY!!  (I always wonder if it says something about my personality that I am always excited over new Grumplings.)  There's also a new edger die that works perfectly with a new Hello die.  Everything you see in the next four days of sneak peeks will be available on Thursday, January 12, 2017.  Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

So even if haven't related to all of the other Grumplings - there's no way you won't relate to this one - Exercise Grumpling!!  There are fabulous, and absolutely perfect sentiments, in this set - you have to be sure to check out the rest of the creative team to see them all.  I chose to use "diddly squats"!

The Grumpling in the chair? NOT in the Exercise set.  I got him out of Clocked Out Grumplings because he perfectly represents my first choice of activity - preferably with a good book and a glass of wine!

I was going for a cartoonish look for these guys.  I added some very light gray on their faces and on ears/arms/feet.  Then I picked a color from the scraps of patterned paper for just a pop of color on each of them. I picked a variety of sequins that would work from my stash - it was easy!!

Here's what's on this card - but be sure to keep reading for a chance at prizes and another sneak peek.


Before I share a peek at another new product, I'm excited to tell you that Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!

My next projects show off a new addition to the Edger collection - Let's Talk Edger 3.  I also hadn't used the just released set - The Birds & The Bees with their dies.  So I pulled out an itty-bitty bird to go with a great big speech bubble!

The "hello" is a new addition to the script words that have been coming out.  I LOVE the font that is used.

That big speech bubble edger is going to come in handy - oversize sentiments and big word dies certainly seem to be in - and this is a fabulous way to show them off!
