Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Take Your Place with Napkin Rings and A Hug in a Mug

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 3 of the Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks!!! I have a Thanksgiving table set to show you today along with a coffee gift set. But, before we get started, remember......

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 Thanksgiving table set includes napkin ring  and personalized place cards. 

The Napkin Rings were created with the new TE Napkin Ring die....Toffee cardstock was used as the base and another layer was cut out of dp from A Perfect Autumn 6x6 paper pad. 

The leaf stamps from the new Tag Along Autumn stamp set were used to create the leaves.

 They were stamped with green and orange ink, cutout with the new Tag Along Autumn dies, and adhered to the napkin ring..... the sentiment is from the same set. 

The place cards were created with the new TE Take Your Place die....the A Perfect Autumn paper was used in the background along with a Skinny Mini Borders die cut.  The plate was created with a round die as was the copper ring.
The silverware was cut out of the copper shimmery paper with the new Bon Appetit dies and the leaves were created with the Tag Along Autumn stamps and dies like the napkin rings.  The names were created with the previously released Mini Caps  Alpha and #'s dies and the new Sweet Basil card stock. 

I tried to get a side view so you could see what the Take Your Place diecut looks like. 

This set is for my son and his wife...hopefully, by Thanksgiving, I will have a set for everyone!!!

My last project is a coffee set that includes a card and a jar full of instant coffee packets. Now I will be prepared when my friends drop by for a quick cuppa!!!

The card features the cute little cup and the heart steam from the new A Hug in a Mug stamp set. It was stamped on a piece of  patterned paper, cutout, and popped up with a foam dot. The card base and layers were cut with the previously released Label Stacklets 7 dies and the sentiment is from the same set. The border from the new Skinny Mini Borders die set and the twine finish it off. 

The jar label uses the coffee label stamp from the A Hug in a Mug set and the enamel dots were added to finish it off.  The label layers were adhered to the jar with 1/4" Sticky Tape. 

Thanks so much for visiting today.... If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers! Remember, the Novenber release is tomorrow, Nov 6th at 7:00 AM PST!!!!
