Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks! The Baker's Dozen is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). All products will be released on Thursday, November 6, @ 7 AM PST.

My first project is a 12x12 layout using some new Pockets & Pages products. This will be a page in my 2012 Project Life album. The photos from this page are from the Nutcracker production that Sabrina participated in a couple of years ago.

Here are some closer looks. I used P&P Essentials - 4x6 for all of the 4x6 pockets. "Be Merry" is from Punchables - Christmas. There are 30 color labels that are printed on white cardstock, You just use a 1.5" circle punch then add it to your project with your choice of adhesive (I used foam tape). Below that I used the new P&P 3x4 Banner w/ Bonus (the bonus is the Dec die). After die cutting the 3x4 banner out of Sugar Cube cardstock, I adhered it to a 3x4 die cut of vellum and stitched Dec over the top. 2012 die cut from Mini Caps Alpha & #s. I used the P&P 3x4 Photo Frame in the pocket next to it. The heart is from P&P 3x4 Circle Showcase.

The next detail shot shows a ticket stub. Below it I used the new Loop-de-Loo cutting plate (trimmed) as a frame for the ticket. Below that I used the P&P 3x4 XOXO along with a photo I took in the dressing room. I added a couple of sequins from the Gingerbread Lane sequin assortment. The next pocket features another new P&P product - this one is P&P 3x4 Medallion Showcase. "You Rock" is from the new Small Packages stamp set.

In the last detail shot, I used the new Skinny Mini Borders on both photos. On the left, the small scallop was die cut directly from glitter tape, then I added it to the side of the photo. On the right, the star border was stitched onto my photo. "Spread Cheer" is also from Punchables - Christmas.

My next project is an altered gift tin. I used the new Tin Topper die along with the Gift Card Frame. When layering these two, they fit perfectly on a hinged tin. The cork coffee cut was die cut with the new Little Bits Coffee Cup. Let's Do Coffee is from Perfect Blend and the hearts are from A Hug in a Mug.

I also decorated the inside of the tin. I used the Gift Card tin to cover the inside top with some chevron patterned paper. I used the new On Display Tin Insert to create a holding area that allows my gift card to sit up inside the tin. This die also comes with pieces for jewelry so that you can hold a necklace or earrings inside. The To & From are also part of the die. The sentiment and coffee cup are both from A Hug in a Mug.
