November 5th, 2014
Hello friends! How can it possibly be November already? As we were working in the church office yesterday, one of the girls commented that there are only 8 Sundays left in the year! WHAT? Wow! Well, today I’m happy to play along with the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks for the November release. All the new products will be available tomorrow morning, November 6th, at Taylored Expressions.
A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a baby shower for my niece who is expecting her first baby. Her nursery will be decorated with woodland animals, so that’s the theme I used for the shower. Everything was soooo cute! I’ll be back in the next day or two with lots of photos, but for today I’m going to focus on the food labels I created with the new Take Your Place and Napkin Ring Dies. These two coordinating dies hold a plethora of possibilities! That being said, I created my labels the night before the shower, in exhaustion mode, so I kept them super simple. I lterally created 16 of these in about half an hour! I absolutely love tools that help me create special touches in very little time!
See that cute frame shape at the top? That is integrated in to the die, so you just die cut and fold and that pretty shape pops out! Cool, huh? The smaller layered shape is a piece from the Napkin Ring Die. I used Doodlebug Happy Camper 6×6 and Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn 6×6 patterned papers along with dark brown and kraft cardstock to create this cute little labels for the buffet table. The glittery leaves are stickers I had picked up when gathering decorations for the shower and some of them were scattered on the table as well.
The Take Your Place Die and Napkin Ring Die work equally well to create place cards, escort cards, buffet labels or even cello bag toppers and napkin rings. I’m sure you’ll come up with even more projects. There’s also a new stamp set called Set the Season that coordinates and allows you to stamp an image along the bottom. There are a ton of great things in the release tomorrow and this was one of my absolute must-have’s! I know I’m going to be using these dies for years to come!
