Taylored Expressions July Sneak Peek

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions July Sneak Peek Day! Yes, we realize that it's still June, but we were just too excited to wait for July, so you get to see everything a bit earlier than normal... :)

Today I am peeking a new petite set (sold with coordinating dies) from the Whimsical Wishes collection, illustrated by the fabulous Nancy McKinney! The set is called Life Saver, and Oh.My.Word is it the sweetest set!

I paired this set with paper from the Echo Park Paradise Beach collection. Fair warning... you will be seeing more of this collection over the next few days. :) I stamped, colored and cut out the sweet little dolphin image, then I popped him on top of my layout with foam tape. See that embossed background? That is one of the sides of the newest TE Impression plate called Waves/Bubbles (this is the "waves" side)!

I used the coordinating set of dies to cut my anchor out of some Spellbinder's foil and added it as a charm. Here's a detail shot:

This petite set includes 2 images and 4 sentiments, and it comes on a 3" x 5" panel. The stamps are deeply etched pink rubber. You may also want to consider a Petite Storage case as a storage option (6 petite sets fit perfectly inside!). This set also comes with the anchor die and a lifesaver die that fits a lifesaver stamp (you can see a photo below of everything that is included).

I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #57 for my layout.

These are the Taylored Dies that I used today:
