Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Welcome Home and Shade Tree Scripture

Good morning everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks!!!! I always get excited for the first week of the month to arrive because I love showing you all the new TE goodies and believe me...this release is going to blow you away!!!! We will have three days of sneak peeks and then the release will be Thursday morning, March 6, at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 AM CST). 

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 card features the super cute stamp set called Welcome Home and the coordinating dies called Build a House. I absolutely looove these sets....sooo many possibilities!!!! 

The little houses were stamped with several different inks, cutout, and adhered between the *grass* layers which were created with the TE Build a Scene Rolling Hills dies. The doors to the houses were cutout and replaced with scraps of cardstock. 

The trees were cutout with the tree die and I used the same die for the clouds. The sentiment is from the same set and the button, hemp, and sewing finish it off. 

My second card features the beautiful previously released Shade Tree Cutting Plate and the new Shade Tree Scripture set which has several long sentiments that fit right under the cool is that!!!!

The tree was cut from chocolate chip cardstock  and adhered to the pretty peach paper from the We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard 6x6 paper pad.  The sentiment was stamped on the hand cut banner and then it was curled a little so it didn't lay flat...the pearls, button, and twine finish it off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design Team...they have created some fabulous projects for you today!!!!

Thanks for visiting sure to stop back tomorrow for more Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks!!
