Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Sack It - Dress For Success and Pockets and Pages Stitched Essentials

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions April Sneak peeks!!! Yesterday I showed you lots of new baby stamps, dies, and I have switched gears to graduation  projects and some new Pockets and Pages scrapbooking goodies!!


Taylored Expressions is 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. 

My first project is a fun graduation gift includes a gift bag featuring the new Sack It - Dress For Success and a gift card. 

The Sack It - Dress For Success die set includes dies for both masculine and feminine...I used the tie die and the graduation gown dies. The Sack It To You base and tie were cut out of  Oreo cardstock, the collar was cut out of 
Silver Metallic and a golded yellow colored cardstock. 

The cardbase was cut with the previously released Bracket Notecard die out of Oreo cardstock...the golded yellow cardstock was used again as one of the background layers as was Sugar Cube cardstock. The previously released Grad Cap set of 3 die set was used for the cap and a black tassel was adhered to the top of the cap.... 

the sentiments are from the new Sky High Sentiments set

I have had these pictures of a little fishing outing on our farm for years and finally pulled them out...the new Pockets and Pages Stitched Essentials die set was used along with a couple previously released dies. 

The new Cloud Stacklets were used for the clouds, the sentiment banners are part of the new Pockets and Pages Stitched Essentials set, the date was created with the Just a Number dies, and the fish images are from the new Mama and Me stamp set. 

The previously released Mini Caps Alpha and #'s dies were used for the names and the  *fun* script is from the  previously released Pockets and Pages June Script set. 

The banner at the top was cut with one of the PandP Stitched Essentials dies as were the arrows below. 

BTW...Terry caught the first fish!!

My hubs, George, is enjoying the peace and quite of fishing in the farm tank...there is nothing better than a fun day of fishing with good friends!!
