TE Sneak Peeks Day 3: Flowers and Grumplings

It's day 3 of sneak peeks for the February release from Taylored Expressions! I have a unique mix today.  A fun new stitched pocket that perfectly holds cheerful flowers which is a unique contrast to an addition to the Grumpling collection! Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

This release includes the cutest little stitched pocket - Little Bits-Pocket.  I found it a perfect holder for a flower from Faith in Bloom (dies for Faith in Bloom are new with this release - I'll have more on these tomorrow.)

I love the details on this pocket.  Stitching is always a great look.  The top is a separate panel so you could do it in another color or patterns.  And the heart button adds a great final touch!

I also used more of the brand new Enamel Shapes - this time in Lemon Meringue.  For the background, I brushed on a very light layers of Salt Water Taffy.

Here's what is 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 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!

Taylored Expressions is known for their Grumplings series.  There are Grumplings for holidays and for weddings and new parents and for dozens of other situations.  Who would have thought they could come up with a set for spring?  Who could be grumpy over spring?  But they did it - and I love it!

This is just one of the fun sentiments in this cute set.  There's also "sneezin's greetings" which definitely fits me!  And my favorite is "Finally! My winter fat is gone. Now I have spring rolls."

The other new items on this cards is the Lattice Frame Cutting Plate. It also comes with multiple ovals that layer perfectly with the previously released Stitched Oval Stacklet.  I love the look of it and am looking forward to some less grumpy cards with it - I want to add layers of flowers and leaves up the lattice!

These are fantastic Kim! I LOVE that you have the flower combined with the little pocket - that is such a great idea and the sprigs of leaves on the Grumpling card make the whole thing!
