Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks - Day 1

It's time to introduce new stamps and dies coming to Taylored Expressions!  Today I have the extreme pleasure of showing you Doodle Notes and the A la Carte Notepaper sets!!  Doodle Notes was concepted by Jen Shults and illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  It was created to use in coordination with the A la Carte Notepaper set along with all of the other "school-related" products we'll be showing you over the next couple of days!  ;)

Doodle Notes is the perfect set for those quick little notes you'd LOVE to leave in your child's lunchbox as they go off to school!  Using it together with the A la Carte Notepaper makes it perfect for school!  :)  I used papers from the Happy Day Collection from Simple Stories.  I created the library pocket using the NEW Library Pocket Die.  Then I stamped the A la Carte Notepaper onto white cardstock and die cut it using the new Notepaper and Clipboard Die.  Next I stamped the image and sentiments onto the notepaper.  I stamped the image again on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it and mounted it with foam tape over the original stamped image.  It is ADORABLE once tucked into the library pocket!  :) 

I die cut the clipboard part of the Notepaper and Clipboard Die again out of gold cardstock and stamped it with the new Chevron Big Background stamp and created a tab behind the library pocket.  I stamped the arrow and sentiment from the Doodle Notes set, cut it out and mounted it above the library pocket.  The card was finished with some hemp and some stitching. 

If you like what you're seeing today, all new products will be available in the store on Thursday August 9th at 8:00 am PST.  Join us on Facebook for the Preview Party Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm PST.  You'll get to see the full sets at that time and that there are lots of prize drawings!!
