Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 3: Napkin Rings, Take Your Place and Perfect Blend

HI Everyone,

Taylored Expressions will be celebrating Release Week with some Fabulous Giveaways!! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak peek Day this week for Details on how you can enter to win!!!


Today I am so excited to show some super cool new dies that are so awesome!!! Taylor will be releasing a couple of dies called: Take Your Place (which is awesome for creating place holders at the table for dinner parties, birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas etc. and Napkin Ring die set that allows you to make awesome personalized napkin rings!!!

Here is a project that I made using just Take Your Place die with the Small Packages stamp set: I created a placecard with the sentiment: "You are appreciated" and then in the Napkin Ring die set - I stamped the sentiment "Give Thanks" : I love the way that this personalization of the table can make the table look so whimsically decorated:

Here is a close up of the Placecard with the sentiment from the Small Packages stamp set:

Here is another look of the napkin ring and the placecard setting: I also used the soon to be released Bon Appetit die set that allows you to die cut forks, spoons and knives:

Here is another project I made using the Napkin Ring die set - I created 4 personalized Napkin Ring Holders by using the Napkin Die set and then die cutting the center of a sheet of names that I printed out with the center of the Napkin die set. I die cut leaves from felt using the Tag Along Autumn dies and cut the owls out of the Carte Bella: Perfect Autumn papers:

Here is a closer peek at the Napkin Ring Holders I created for our family - hopefully more of a reason for my kids to actually have fun using the napkins :) :

I was thinking that one individual napkin can be arranged like this during the place setting:

Here are all four of them - my children are so so so so beyond excited about their napkin rings!!! Who knew napkin rings could be so exciting!! My daughter wants to have tea parties so I can make them for her friends - its pretty adorable! I love the leaf die and this sweet paper:

For my next project, I created a card using the stamp set: Perfect Blend - such a perfect card to make for your coffee buddy - I know exactly how to give this card to!!! I colored the image and then cut it out and embellished it with a heart and spoon (from the Bon Appetit die set):

Here is close up of the card - love these two friends having coffee - they are so cute! I added some ribbon made from twine to the top right corner and the spoon cut out from a metallic gray paper:
