Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks -Day 1 !!!!


Happy New Year! A new year means a new release from Taylored Expressions and today we are peeking 2 new stamp sets and 2 new A la Carte stamps, 7 new dies and die sets, plus a brand new Project Pantry.
Today, I am excited to peek a sample of the Love A la Carte stamp that is part of the A La Carte Word Collection! This one is designed by Taylor herself and is perfect for Valentines, Weddings, gifts for children, anniversaries and the size work perfectly for your larger projects including scrapbooking!


I made this card using the Project Pantry kit from this month's release (which features: designer papers, cardstock and beautiful coordinating ribbons and accessories. The Project Pantry comes as a Basic Recipe Kit or also has a Spice it Up option where you can build your own kit just the way you want! Gotta love options!)  I stamped the image and cut it out with the  Gift Card Frame Die  from Taylored Expressions. I cut out the hearts from the DP in the Project Pantry using the new Hearts A Plenty dies that will also be released on Thursday and then tied them into a pennant with some baker's twine
Card Ingredients:
Paper: January Project Pantry from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Love A la Carte from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
AccessoriesHearts A Plenty dies and  Gift Card Frame Die  from Tayolored Expressions, copics, bling, ribbon and heart pins from the Project Pantry,  baker's twine

These dies are seriously awesome and plentiful! I love that they come in different sizes! I cut out the heart in the center and added some dimensionals to it and then added some glaze after coloring them with copics. The ribbon and heart pins are from the project pantry - love those accessories (and you can get more of one accessory when you spice up the Project Pantry your way!).
I loved this sweet Love A La Carte, that I made one more little project with it for my DH for Valentine's Day: a little small hinged tin decorated with the pennant edge border and the Gift Card Frame Die from Taylored Expressions that makes it so easy to cut paper that covers one of these tins perfectly! I stamped the Love A La Carte first and popped up the heart and then stamped the " 4 daddy" sentiment using the 
Your My Type - Lower & # stamp set from Taylored Expressions


When you open it, I cut out a picture of our kids on the top and then folded some notes into a trifold and decorated some chipboard birds using the DP for the kids to write him some love notes that he can keep with him at his office desk :)
I love all of these gorgeous dies and new stamps - check out all the release details this week:
