Hi everyone! I’m back today with the third day of Taylored Expressions Previews and I have two new Taylored Expressions sets to share with you!!!
For my first project I have a brand new addition to the very cute Animals In Love A La Carte series…. Dachshunds in Love. These little guys are too cute AND are perfect for me because my parents always had dachshunds when I was little. They are just the best dogs!
I kept my card clean and simple and started with a Choice Snow White cardstock base (5.25″ x 5.25″) and layered that with another piece of white matted in cardstock from the Valentine Project Pantry kit. I colored the Dachshunds with Copics and used the out of the box technique to cut them out using a Spellbinders Circle die and matted that on another circle cut from the same red cardstock. To finish off the card I used a bit of the ribbon from the Project Pantry kit to add a bow at the top.
For my second project I made the first of a set of treats for my daughter’s classmates for Valentines day using the AWESOME Heart Favor Box and the second addition of the Totally Tags series… Totally Tags Valentines! I LOVE these tags and the set comes with NINE gorgeous tags! They make quick work of making easy and gorgeous treat boxes!
To make the boxes I die cut the treat boxes first. I was able to get two boxes out of one 8.5″x11″ piece of cardstock. Then I lined the box with designer paper from the Valentine Project Pantry kit. Then I stamped a variety of tags on Snow White Choice cardstock and colored them with Copics. I cut them out with the matching Totally Tags Dies and then to create the mattes I traced around the dies on colored cardstock and cut them out by hand. To finish them off I used my Crop a Dile to punch holes and tied the tags onto the boxes with twine. I love how cute and simple they are!
