Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day One!

Hi there!  It's day one of the Taylored Expressions Sneak peeks!  It's an exciting month at TE as Taylor is releasing something brand new.....Taylored Dies!!  Today the Baker's Dozen will be showcasing a new set from the Whimsical Wishes Line called Take Note along with it's coordinating dies!  This set was concepted by Jami Sibley and was illustrated by our own Nancy McKinney!!  This is a long post, so let's get to it!!


I made a cute grocery list for my project today!!  I'm notorious for making a grocery list, setting it aside and then forgetting where I put it or just forgetting it all together!  My hubby was thrilled when I showed him this project...he just hopes it gets put to good use!  It will!  LOL!



I used the Take Note Frame 1 along with it's coordinating stamp from the Take Note set.  Did I mention there are THREE frame dies that coordinate with THREE different frame stamps?  Heaven.....and these dies cut like butter!!  But I digress....
I stamped the frame in Dark Chocolate ink and cut it out perfectly with the Take Note Die in my Cuttlebug using the same sandwich as I would for my Nestabilities dies or other metal dies.  I used some October Afternoon Farm Fresh DP that I thought worked perfectly with my Grocery List theme.  I stitched around the dp with my sewing machine.  I felt the list needed something else and while searching through my Taylored Expressions stamps I remembered the vegetables from last month's new set, Weigh To Go!  I used the carrot and the broccoli!  Isnt' it cute?  I finished off with some buttons from my stash and some Farmer's Market Twine in Chocolate.



I also finished off the inside by adding some of the same DP to make a pocket to hold my coupons!!  I bought these notepads at Papertrey several months ago.  The measure 2 1/2" x 8".  To make the folder for the notepad I cut a 6 1/4" by 8 1/4" piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock, scoring at 3" and 3 1/4" on the 6 1/4" side. 

This next card shows how you can use the die without the coordinating stamps!!  I love to have different shaped dies in my arsenal and this one is SO PRETTY!  Love the soft scallop shape!  I paired it this time with my favorite Garden Party Blooms set.  The DP and ribbon are from the Summertime Project Pantry kit.  The sentiment is from the TE Extra Credit set.  I sponged all of the Kraft with Tea Dye distress ink and finished it off with some adhesive pearls.

I hope I've inspired you with my projects today!  Now it's time to take a peek at what the rest of the girls did with today's set!


Thanks for stopping by!
