Hi Everyone,

Today is the second day of sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions and it is filled with all kinds of yumminess to get your holiday crafting mojo going! We are peeking two sets today - Peaceful Poinsettias and Totally Tags! The Totally Tags stamp set is filled with 9 tags/images that are perfect for creating the perfect tag for your holiday needs illustrated by the awesome Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line at Taylored Expressions. These also coordinate with the Totally Tags (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions which will also be released on Thursday. I stamped  (all of which are super fast to stamp/color) and cut out my tags using the dies. And to store them, I used the Tim Holtz Configurations 5.5" x 5.5" box to keep all the dies in order - also with some extra ribbon for last minute tag/ribbon tying emergencies :) 



Here is a view of the Tim Holtz box that is Taylor's store - it is so perfect and easy to decorate - I just used some of the papers from the Holiday Wonder Project Pantry to decorate the box (which has a lid that slides off):


Here is a view from the side - I sponged the DP and then added a line of liquid pearls to decorate the edges and tied a ribbon around the box lid:


The smaller compartments in the box can be removed out and shifted around to find the configuration that you like best. I used one of the smaller compartments to store some extra ribbon:


Here is a view of all the tags that I made using the tags in this stamp set - it was so easy and quick to stamp and cut out the tag images using the coordinating Totally Tags dies from Taylored Expressions and I used both of the Project Pantry kits in making my tags: (both the Holiday wonder and the 12 Days of Christmas Project Pantries):


I loved making all the tags and can't wait for the holidays and I can't wait to check out all the amazing creations from these amazing ladies - so much awesomeness!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari
