Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Pockets and Pages Layout and Decorated Tin with Little Bits - Teacups

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 1 of the Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks!!!! This month Taylor has some fabulous new stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, cardstock, and preprinted items to inspire your crafty selves!!! 

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. 

I created a page full of new TE products....the pictures are of my Grandson, Cody. Last December he had his first violin concert with all the grade schools, middle schools, and the high school orchestras. It was an awesome concert!!! 

The new Preprinted 2015 3x4 Calendar was used as my journaling card and the date of the concert was circled. The new red round Preprinted Punchable - Christmas sentiment was used to ground all the star borders from the new Skinny Mini Borders die set on the Salt Water Taffycard stock base ....Cherry Pop, Peapod, and Granny Smith cardstocks were used for the borders . 

The previously released Mini Caps Alpha and #'s were used for Cody's name and the Skinny Mini Borders die was used for the fun border along the right side. 

The new  Pockets and Pages 3x4 Medallion Showcase die was used to cutout the Granny Smith diecut and the sentiment is from the  new Small Packages stamp set....the background paper is from the TE Gingerbread Lane 6x6 paper pack and the Skinny Mini Borders diecut was also cut out of Granny Smith card stock. 

The new Pockets and Pages 3x4 Banner With Bonus was used to cutout Cody's red Cherry Pop frame and the Granny Smith die cut on the right. The "Sweet" sentiment is from the Small Packages set and was stamped on the banner diecut from the previously released Label It set. The "Bonus" with the P&P 3x4 Banner set is the "dec" was cut out of Peapod cardstock as were the previously released Sweet and Simple #'s used for the year. The previously released Sheet Music Embossing Folder was used to emboss the Sugar Cube card stock and it was sponged with Soft Sky ink. The red enamel dots finish it off. 

 My second project is a gift card tin was decorated with the sweet Little Bits - Teacups that were cut out of pink and brown polka dot paper. 

The card base was cut out with the previously released Scalloped Notecard die....the Girls Paperie dp was added along with a scallop cut with a Skinny Mini Borders die. The Little Bits - Teacups were cut out of the same dp and the twine and sentiment from the new Small Packages stamp set finish it off. 

The polka dot paper was cut out with the previously released Gift Card Frame die and the new Tin Topper die was used to cut out the brown top layer.  The little sentiment tag was cut with the previously released Banner Stacklets 3 die and the sentiment is from the Small Packages set. 

The white layer was cut out of Sugar Cube card stock with the previously released Label stacklets 3 die and the cute Little Bits - Teapot was cut from the same dp. The On Display Tin Insert die set was used for the gift card holder and the words. 

This shows how the gift card holder looks before the gift card was added....

and after...this makes such a fun gift!!!
