TE Sneak Peek Day 2: Tucked In and Love Struck

It's the second day of sneak peeks for the December release from Taylored Expressions!  Today I have a little gift box that is perfect for any time of the year!  And a new addition to the Clearly Planned line of stamps. Everything you see in the next two days of sneak peeks will be available on Thursday, December 7th. Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

I am not particularly good at 3D type projects - but when a die is available that does all the work - I'm in love!!  The new die All Tucked In is one of those dies.  It makes an itty-bitty box (it's the size of a few squares of Ghiradelli chocolate).  To make it extra special there's a scalloped flap and a little cut out to tuck the flap into.  (You can't see the cut out because that's where I adhered the heart.)

I was trying to decide what to put in my sample boxes.  I really wanted to avoid Ghiradelli chocolate squares because I have zero self-control and I would have been lucky to get the picture taken before I started munching.  For an entirely different reason, I had these bracelet sets on my desk that I had seen on a random shopping trip to Hobby Lobby and I knew they would be nice for my little nieces at some point.  Guess what?  These boxes are just perfect for my little gifts.

I got totally giddy over this project when I found the stamp "Filled with Love" in a previously released set called...Filled with Love!  How perfect for these bracelets!

The other peek on this project is the paper.  I've shown you four different patterns - the outside of the lid and the inside liner - all part of Playful Patterns - Valentine.

Of course, we need an addition to the Clearly Planned line of stamps for Valentines Day!!  The new set Love Struck is full of sweet treats, an envelope and a heart - plus 6 "love" sentiments.  I am using the little "treat on a stick".

Taylored Expressions Love Struck

My first thought on the treat was that it was a chocolate-covered marshmallow - yum!!  But I was totally locked into using a pink and mint color scheme and every time I colored the chocolate part, it just seemed to dark.  So strictly for the design purposes - I created a treat that's mint green with a toasted marshmallow topping!!

The shaker is made with a new addition to the Inside Scallop series.  The newest addition is the Inside Scallop Oval Stacklets.  I cut the scallop into the front of the card.  Then I cut a frame for the opening using the same scallop and the larger Stitched Oval Stacklet. The patterned paper in the background is also the new Playful Patterns - Valentine.

Your little shaker is adorable; your gift boxes, beautiful! Your nieces will love receiving their Valentine Day bracelets, tucked into the pretty packages!. You've given me a springboard of ideas for my niece and nephew and their classmates (although I should get the Christmas shakers done first, right?)...
