Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

It's just about time for another release from Taylored Expressions and I have something very exciting to show you!  Taylored Expressions now has their own line of dies called Taylored Dies!!  For today's sneak peek, I have a couple of projects to show you using a die that coordinates with a new stamp set, Take Note
For this project, I used the die unconventionally and created this face to go on the front of the notebook!  I picked up this notebook in a dollar bin somewhere.  The papers and stickers are all from the Summertime Project Pantry.  The "big" in the sentiment is from the Animals in Love Sentiments and "book" is from the new Take Note stamp set. 
To create the face, I used the die and cut a piece from some Blush Blossom cardstock.  Then I used the pink Oval Marvy Uchida punch to punch a piece from brown cardstock and hand cut the "bangs".  The eyes, nose, mouth and ears all used various circles punches!


The next project I have for you uses the die conventionally as well as a frame and sentiment from the Take Note stamp set.  The Take Note stamp set has different sentiments that you can piece together to create the title you'd like.  It also has frames which have coordinating dies.  I used a magnetic notepad that I picked up in a dollar bin and added the "Grocery List" label to the top.  All of the sheets can be torn off from underneath the label. 
You can visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to get a peek at some of the other dies that will be available Friday, August 6th at 11am Eastern
