Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: P&P Insta Squares & Gathered Blooms Cutting Plate

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks! This release is HUGE!!! We are releasing 13 new stamp sets, 12 dies, 9 Little Bits dies and 3 cutting plates! All products will be released on Thursday, June 5, @ 7 AM PST.

Today is all about new Pockets & Pages stamps and dies as well as some fun new Doodle stamps! My first project is a continuation of my 2013 Insta album. Here are my June pages:


Here's a closer look at the left side. I used Danielle's Pockets & Pages Doodle Months for June, stamping and adding color with Copic markers.


For the right side, I used the new Pockets & Pages Insta Squares, Pockets & Pages Fab Frames - Summer (cut out the portion that says road trip) and added a wood veneer car (using the new Transporation dies). This page documents our trip to Zion National Park last year.


In July, we went to MN for our family trip.


On the left side I used Pockets & Pages Insta Squares to create the speech bubble. The photos are top: Brina's first 5K and bottom: an impromptu family photo that covers both lower squares.


On the left side I combined the word "fun" (from Pockets & Pages June Script, "July" (from Pockets & Pages Doodle Months) and "memories" (from Pockets & Pages Fab Frames - Summer).


Next up is a whimsical anniversary card for my parents, who will celebrate their 62nd anniversary this Sunday! The background is the new Gathered Blooms Cutting Plate, which I cut out of polka dot vellum. I added rolling hills. My focal image is a bicycle built for two, embossed and die cut with the new dies, Bikes & Trikes, which coordinate with this previously released, fun set!


Detail shot:


Finally, I have a super simple frame for Father's Day. I printed out the photo (taken just a few weeks ago on Brina's birthday). I used Pockets & Pages June Script to die cut "dad" and stitched it directly onto my photo. I added the cork heart and slipped it directly into this We R frame.

    3. Love the idea of cutting on vellum with the cutting plates. Just the right effect on a pretty card.
