Last week I played along with the Viva la Verve Sketch. I LOVE when I get to play along because I LOVE sketches and I love creating. Sketches make it much easier for me when I'm short on time! I had also been dying to create something with the fabulous Latte Love Digital Freebie Julee made!
I just LOVE the coffee cups she created. It really puts me in a Fall mood. :) I used some papers from my scrap stash. These papers are from the Apple Cider Collection from Imaginisce. I also used some of the NEW Fall Fancy Shaker Mix from Verve. The little metallic leaves are just adorable!
If you're looking for some inspiration to get a card started, head on over to the Viva la Verve Blog! Tomorrow a new sketch will go up! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hi there! It's time! Everthing you've been seeing over the past few days is NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store!! I do have another project to share with you today! It uses the NEW Build a Scene - Winter Trees dies. Build a Scene - Winter Trees is a fun set that helps you create a scene. For my card, I paired it with the Critters on Ice set to create this little iceskating scene.
I started by stamping and coloring the polar bear. Then I covered the polar bear in Glossy Accents and let him dry. This provided a way for me to "mask" the bear and add an inked background. Once the bear was dry, I sponged on Picked Raspberries, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. After that, I flicked water onto the paper and it gave those white spots that almost look like falling snow. I cut around the bottom of the skate so that I could tuck the "ice" from the Build a Scene - Central Park Dies under the skate and give the appearance that the bear is actually ON the ice. The trees completed the scene as well as the snow that was added using Liquid Applique.
Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers! Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SHOPPING!!

Welcome back for another day of sneak peeks for the October Release at Taylored Expressions! I hope you're enjoying all of the sneak peeks! I have two more projects to share today! The first uses the NEW Critters on Ice! This set is absolutely adorable! I created my card with the moose image.
I started by embossing the background with the NEW Nordic Holiday Embossing Folder. Then I created a shaker using the Picture Perfect - Horizontal die. This is the smaller die in the set. I added some Build a Scene Christmas Sequins inside the shaker. The moose was stamped, colored with Copic markers and then die cut using the coordinating Critters On Ice Die Set and adhered to the outside of the shaker element.
My second project for today uses the NEW Peek-a-Boo Squares. Peek-a-Boo Squares is just like the previously released Peek-a-Boo Circles. I used it here with some new Little Bits dies! Again, I made a shaker element by using the Peek-a-Boo Squares and filling them with snowflakes that were die cut using the Little Bits - Snowflake Confetti die.
On each "window" I added an element. . .Little Bits - Snowman, Little Bits - Tis the Season and Little Bits - Reindeer. The sentiment and snowflakes that are stamped on the card are from the NEW Peek-a-Boo Christmas set.

Welcome back for Day 2 of the October Sneak Peeks! I hope you are enjoying what you're seeing! I have two more projects to share with you today! The first uses the NEW Roly Poly - Santa. The new die line of Roly Poly are made to be built on a 3 inch circle, which is included in the NEW Stitched Circle Stacklets. I used the NEW Season's Greetings Banner Die for the sentiment.
Isn't this Roly Poly Santa the cutest? Actually, all of the Roly Polys are CUTE!!! I die cut the pieces out of Cherry Pop, Sugar Cube, Oreo, Strawberry Milkshake and Cupcake cardstock. On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the NEW In and Out - Christmas set and "prettied" it up with some Little Bits - Christmas Confetti.
My second project for today uses the NEW Eventful - Holidays set. I used some papers from the Build a Scene - Christmas Matched Kit. The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white. The little "village" was die cut using the NEW Night Before Christmas Die. I thought these would make fun and simple invitations to a Christmas party!
Inside, I used the previously released RSVP as well as other sentiments from the Eventful - Holidays set.
