Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks: Pockets & Pages and Blooming Heart Cutting Plate

Hello everyone and welcome to day 2 of the Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks!!! Didn't you just love all the fabulous projects the Baker's Dozen created yesterday!!! I hope you are ready to be inspired by all the gorgeousness today!!!

My first project is a Pockets and Pages Scrapbooking page of my hubby, George.  In February 1998 he bought a new boat....I know it doesn't look like February but we live in Texas and we only have a few weeks of winter each year. Our spring starts the last of January...I gotta tell ya....It can't get here any too soon because today it's 16 degrees outside this morning...LOL!!!

I used one of the new stamp sets and several new dies for my project....

The arrows are from the previously released set called Cupid's Arrow

From left to right.... the first pocket: 3x4 Pocket - Part of My Heart cut out of MME Cupid's arrow 6x6 paper pad,  Pockets and Pages - February Script cut out of regal rose cardstock, the small heart from the Heart Stacklets cut from regal rose card stock and an enamel heart is the finishing touch. The second pocket features the 3x4 Pocket - XOXO cut from choice Black card stock with tiny enamel hearts details. The script was written with a Project Life Journaling Pen

The string of hearts was made with one of the smallest Heart Stacklets and they were sewn together.

The heart was cut from one of the largest Heart Stacklets and one of the arrows from the Cupid's Arrow die set was cut in half and adhered under the picture.

From right to left....the 3x4 Pocket - You are Loved die was used with Prism Iced Cobult card stock and the blue enamel heart was added. The next pocket features the 3x4 Pocket - XOXO die cut from Choice Black card stock and the sentiment from the new Love Makes The World Go Round was stamped with Memento Tuxedo enamel dots were added and all the pockets feature papers from the MME Cupic's arrow 6x6 paper pad. 

My second project features the new Blooming Hearts Cutting was used to cut three different diecuts: pink pirouette, Choice Black, and Pretty in Pink. The light pink diecut was adhered on top of the black one just a touch off center so the black shows as a shadow. The darker pink hearts were added and the larger Heart Stacklets were used to cut out the Robin's Egg Blue felt heart and the pretty in pink heart. 

The hemp cording and Cupid's Arrow diecut arrow were adhered to the back of the pink heart cut with a Heart Stacklet die after it was pierced and stamped with the sentiment from the new A Lovely View stamp set.  Yeaaaa... one more valentine completed!!!!

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design are going to love what they created for you, today!!!!

Thanks for visiting today.....we will have more fabulous sneaks for you tomorrow and then the Taylored Expressions January Release will by Thursday morning at 9:00 CST...Woot!!!!
