TE Sneak Peek Day 3: A Little Dimension

It's day 3 of sneak peeks for the March release from Taylored Expressions!  This is a very fun day. Just wait until you see the dies and coordinating stamps soon to be available to help with dimensional crafting!!  Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

There's a fun new trend and Taylored Expressions has now come out with the dies to make it easy!  A Matchbox!!

Can you just picture all of the fun things that can go in that little box?  Little candies. Jewelry. Money. Or I just went with a greeting that might be the inside if it were a card!

I love the surprise of this!  The little scallop piece and the white piece on top comes with the Matchbox die.  The stamps comes from a perfectly sized matching stamp set called Matchy Matchy with coordinating Matchy Matchy dies. The set has a variety of images and sentiments so can be used by many occasions.

I am all thumbs when it comes to dimensional products and I have to say - this was EASY!  Perfectly sized, nice score lines - a little adhesive and it comes together cleanly!

And we have another dimensional product - check out this charming little house!!

Taylored Expressions Home Sweet Home

This is Home Sweet Home along with Home Sweet Home Accessories.  The accessories set comes with so much more than I am showing you here - there are curtains and window boxes and more. (This is definitely a day to check out all of the other creative team members' blogs!)  I deliberately didn't add all of that because I had the idea of putting two battery operated tealights inside for the warm glow of a house at night and I didn't want it blocked by curtains!

I wanted this little house to be used - so I added the ability to change it up for holidays and occasions. (Just ask my family - I am all about seasonal and holiday decorations!)  Did you notice its "happy new home" banner.  That part of the roof isn't adhered so the banner can be slipped in and out to match your needs!  Here's how I lined it all up.

You can see the roof clearly on the last picture - that's the new Subway Tile Embossing Folder. I also pulled out the previously released Woodgrain Background stamp to add texture to the walls.

Such a fun day, isn't it??!!  Be sure to head over to the TE blog for links to the rest of the creative team and to enter the question of the day contest.
