Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peek: Totally Tags - Occasions & Big Bold Birthday


Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks! We are celebrating 5 years of TE with a BIG birthday bash! We'll be partying all month long and there will be lots of fun games and prizes to be won during this release week! Today the Baker's Dozen kicks off 4 days of projects (2 days of peeks, release day and spotlight day). All products will be released on Thursday, September 5, @ 8 AM PST.


Today I am previewing a few new stamp sets and dies! My first 2 cards use Totally Tags - Occasions. This is the 6th set in the collection that coordinates with the Totally Tags Dies. As the name implies, this full-size set is perfect for all of your all-occasion papercrafting projects. I've used both of the birthday-themed images today.


My first card uses only a portion of the entire image, which I cut with a 1.5" circle punch. I made a shaped card with the new Bloomin' Stacklets 1. I used it both for the base of my card and also to mat my punched image. I stamped the sentiment (from Many Minis - Occasions) onto a Fly Your Flag 3 die cut. The flag was wrapped around a trimmed Doodlebug Pixie.


Next up is the fun balloon birthday image. I colored the birthday balloons and die cut the mini tag with the Totally Tags Die. My layout is from Mojo 301.

Since today's party game is Tic Tac Toe, my next cards use the bottom row (use a button, use 2 or more dies, use ribbon) of the fun Tic Tac Toe board that Taylor created.


Both cards feature the new Big Bold Birthday and 2 new dies, Labels Stacklets 6 (the sentiments use this) and Party Banner Border. Both cards were inspired by Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #113. Big Bold Birthday is a mini set full of fun BIG birthday sentiments and a mix of fun fonts... LOVE it! Here's my red version:


and a turquoise version:


You are invited to play along by creating a card using the Tic Tac Toe board and uploading your card to Splitcoast Stampers using the keyword TETICTACTOE. TE stamps are not required to play. The prize is 5 TE gift certificates! For all the details, please visit Taylor's blog.
