Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Pockets & Pages

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks! First off, I'd like to thank everyone for all of your kind words via email, my blog and on Facebook regarding my DT coordinator news. I really appreciate your support and encouragement!

The Baker's Dozen is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). Today we are featuring an all-new collection of products, Pockets & Pages by Taylored ExpressionsI have been looking forward to this release ever since Taylor, Nancy and I began brainstorming ideas for this new product line. Pockets & Pages is a line of stamps and dies for pocket scrapbooking (aka Project Life). Our initial release includes 4 stamp sets and 9 dies! All products will be released on Thursday, November 7, @ 7 AM PST.

Before I get to my projects, please welcome our newest designer... Courtney Kelley! Courtney was a TE Guest Designer last summer, and now she is joining the Baker's Dozen. She is super talented, and you will definitely be inspired by her creations! Pattie Goldman returns this month as our fabulous Guest Designer!

I've gotten a bit behind on my 2013 Project Life album, but no worries, I will keep working on it and will slowly get caught up. I am especially excited to incorporate Pockets & Pages products into my album! I picked up where I left off in May. My pages are 12x12 and use PL page protectors, Design A. I used several of the new Pockets & Pages products and have done my best to highlight when I have, so please be warned - this post is picture heavy!
