Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Wine Journal & Rock My World

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks! Today we are featuring Wine a Little, Witty Wine Quotes, Rock My World, You're My Hero/Rock On Dies, Label Stacklets 7, plus all of the Pockets & Pages dies that we previewed yesterday! We are having a Facebook preview party tomorrow @ 6 PM PST. Hope you can join along hereAll products will be released on Thursday, November 7, @ 7 AM PST.

I have 2 projects to show you today. The first is a wine journal that I made using our new Wine Journal Download, Wine a Little and Witty Wine Quotes stamp sets, and a few new dies.

My journal is 5.5 x 8.5. I used sturdy chipboard for my covers and opted to attach the journal with a few loose leaf binder rings. This will allow me to add pages as I need them. The cover was decorated with paper from the November Key Ingredients (patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky collection). Wine Journal and the second generation stamped wine glass were stamped onto Choice Buttercream, then die cut with the new Label Stacklets 7 die.

The wine bottles were stamped and die cut with Wine & Dine dies as were the silver wine glasses. The Kraft wine charm (tied with ribbon and hemp cord onto the top binder ring) and silver corkscrew were created with the new Wine Charms.

Here's a look at the inside of the book. The quote is from Witty Wine Quotes. You can get a better look at the wine journal here. The download comes as a 8.5 x 11 PDF with 2 pages side by side. I printed front and back onto Matte Presentation Paper, which is a little nicer than just printing onto copy paper.

Next up is a card using Rock My World. I stamped the phonograph and attempted to make it look vintage. A felt bow was added (using the Mix & Match Bows). The musical notes are from the fun new Just a Note dies. I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #125 for my layout.

Here's a detail shot:
