Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks Day 1

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions August Release. I have to say that this release is of one of my very favorite releases!! I love how all the stamps and die work together and the dies this month are just the cutest!

All new products will be available in the store on Thursday August 9th at 8:00 am PST. Be sure to join us on Facebook for the Preview Party Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm PST. You will get to see the full sets at that time and that there are lots of prize drawings.

It is hard to believe that it is already time to think about kids going back to school! I have a couple of fun ideas for little ways to make your child felt special. First I used the new stamp set, Doodle Notes and the new Notebook Border Die to make a few quick and easy cards to sneak in lunch pails or backpacks.   This amazing set full of doodles was concepted by the Jen Shults and brought to life by Nancy McKinney.

The papers for my cards are October Afternoon 9 to 5. On each card I used the Notebook Border to create a little piece of notebook paper. Then I colored by doodles with Copics and added a little glitter.

On this card I added some Burlap Twine.

 And on this card Tangerine Doodle Twine.

Next I used Doodle Notes to make these little treat bags to surprise your student with! Taylor has these darling little bags in the store in a variety of colors and styles.
