TE Sneak Peek Day 3: Beavers and Penguins

It's day 3 of sneak peeks for the June release from Taylored Expressions! Today I have a card that includes a charming beaver (so definitely not nautical or tropical!) and a card that features a penguin tumbling through a big wave using a new product that creates slider cards!  All of the new products that you see today will be available tomorrow. Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

And now for a quick sidetrack from the tropical/nautical themes - we have the Busy Beaver Stamp & Die Combo!

Taylored Expressions Busy Beaver

This new little guy is in honor of our Canadian friends.  Canada Day is July 1st. Did you know Canada is 150 years old?!  One of the sentiments in the sets is even "Heard it's your birthday, eh?" 

The trees in the back are from the previously released die set Build a Scene - Lakeside.  I love their quirky look behind this guy.  I gave him a Little Bits - Party Hat cut in an outdoorsy plaid so he could celebrate a birthday! Check out this cute face!

Here's the supply list for this card and be sure to keep reading for a chance at prizes and for 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!

Now for something to make your crafting life SO much fun!!  Track dies to make slider cards!

Taylored Expressions On the Right Track

I wish I had better video capabilities because this little guy goes tumbling down that wave - and you can't help but smile!

Taylored Expressions On the Right Track

The new On the Right Track series of dies allows you to cut the channel on which sliders move!! Then I followed the penny method - one above, one below, dimensional adhesive in the middle - glued my little guy on top - and he starts sliding!!  There's a Basic set of tracks - and I've used the set that coordinates with our mountain dies and rolling hill dies.  SO many options - definitely be sure to check out the rest of the creative team today to get a good look at the potential in these dies - they will definitely make our lives easier!

Tomorrow I go back to a nautical/beach theme but with widely different styles on my two cards.  I go from silly crustaceans to keeping God at the helm!  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.

Hi Kim! I was in the TE studio and saw your penguin floaty card. I have to say, I couldn't put it down and showed it to some of the gals who came in. It is by far my favorite card from this release. It's ADORABLE! The way he spins down the water reminds me of Adventure Island water park in Tampa. I'm going to make a similar one to send to my grandkids who live there. I'm sure they'll play with it as much as I did! Great job!!!
