It's Day Two of sneaky peekies for Taylored Expressions and I have two projects to share with you today that showcase two new sets from TE -- Wreath of Luck and Fashionista. Both are terrifically fun, and let's jump right in!
In honor of this greenest of green days, I decided to make a St. Patrick's Day candy box using a repurposed container. I love reusing something that would have gone out in the trash or the recycling bin, and for this project I used the box that came with my new wireless mouse.
I covered the whole box with green cardstock before adding the darling images from Wreath of Luck. Do you recall the seasonal wreath die from last month's Wreath of Love? Well, this lucky wreath fits in the same die! The leprechaun hat and lucky horse shoe were the perfect touch, and I used the accents from the new Lucky Sampler. A ton of liquid pearls later, I filled the box with the appropriately green chocolate mints for a lucky someone to get ready for a lucky kiss!

My second project is a card I made with Fashionista. It's the perfect set for all those shop-a-holics you know (moi, being one of them!) and I went for a bright pink and black color combo, complete with blinged out frame and tiny gems on the shoes. I love anything patent leather, and a bit of glossy accents turned those heels into shiny fabulousness. My sis-in-law has a birthday coming up in a couple months, and I know this will be perfect for her as she is the ultimate fashionista!
