Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Pencil Toppers and Talk Nerdy To Me

Hello everyone!!! I am so excited to welcome you to the Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks!! You are going to love this new's packed full of fabulous new stamps and dies...Woot!!! The August release is Thursday, August 7 at 7:00 AM PST (that's 9:00 CST) so mark your calenders!!!  

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. 

Ok...get comfy and enjoy the show!!!

My first project is the ultimate back to school gift for your favorite teacher!! I used the Taylored Expressions Pencil Topper die along with several of the new Little Bits dies ( Little Bits Crayon, Little Bits Globe, Little Bits School House) to create the pencil toppers. The new TE Apple Stacklets and Apple Stems and Seeds were used to create the apple on the front of the previously released TE Sack It to You box, the apple card, and the three little apples on the Pencil Topper. 

The Pencil Toppers were cut out of Choice Kraft and stamped with sentiments from the new TE Mischief Maker - Back To School stamp set.  The Little Bits Schoolhouse, Globe, and Crayon Dies along with the Apple Stacklets were all used with different colored card stock and adhered with foam dots. 

The previously released TE Sack It To You Die was used with Choice Kraft and Smarty Pants dp to create the container and the apple was created with the TE Apple Stacklets and Apple Stems and Seeds Dies

The apple card was created with the TE Apple Stacklets and the Apple Stems and Seeds Dies...the sentiment is from the new TE Mischief Maker - Back To School stamp set and the button and hemp cording finish it off. 

My second creation features two new Taylored Expressions stamp sets: Talk Nerdy to Me for the sentiments and Smarty Pants for the owl.

The owl was colored with Copics, cutout with the coordinating Smarty Pants die, and popped up with foam tape. The branch was created using the previously released TE Around the Camp Fire dies and the previously released TE Say What? Conversation Bubbles were used for the sentiments. 

The only other detail was a little sewing around the edges.....I can't believe I didn't even use a little twine...LOL!!!

Check out what the Baker's Dozen DT has created for you today!! 

Thanks for joining us sure to check back tomorrow for another day of Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks!!
