Bonjour!...A Special Taylored Expressions Release!

Today is a fun day of surprises, as we have a mid-month Release for Taylored Expressions! TE is bursting at the seams with so many wonderful new goodies that there is just too much to wait for until next month's release. So, happy, happy I have two projects to share and these three fabulous new sets are already available at the store!
My first project features the lovely new set, Labels of Love, full of gorgeous images that coordinate perfectly with the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3 dies. I chose to use the very French "Bonjour" sentiment with a pretty label and used some of the included flourishes to create easy background paper. Pssst! If you like my little 3-D scene of Cuppie strolling along the boulevards of Paris, you might like to know that it is a FREEBIE at the Taylored Expressions Splitcoast Stamps Member Company Forum (It's a great place to get the latest news on TE and chat with other TE fans!)

By the way, a few months ago, Spellbinders was kind enough to give all of the Baker's Dozen a Grand Calibur die-cutting machine -- pretty sweet, yes? I use mine for everything from cutting a bunch of dies at once to running through the uber cool Grand Nestabilities, which are great for scrapbooking and 3-D projects. I thought I'd show how easy it is to stamp and line-up the coordinating die I used on this card:

a piece of removable tape holds the die in place perfectly
of course, the die would be flipped when running it through the machine
 My second project showcases two new sets from TE that I am really excited about, You're My Type - Upper and You're My Type - Lower, font sets that are so utterly cute! They happen to fit perfectly inside the new Spellbinders Pennants dies!

For my second project, I thought I would make a page for the rugrat's scrapbook, and I chose to do a school page. I used You're Just My Type - Upper, punching out circles and popping them up over some fun red pennants, which I then strung on some baker's twine. I created the seal using the recently released Dream Big set (I know, Class of 2026 is so hard to imagine!) and another of the nested pennant dies.
