Love Shack!...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2!



Just a few days into 2012 and we are on day two of sneak peeks for Release Week at Taylored Expressions! Valentine's Day is just around the corner and TE has a slew of darling Love Day sets releasing this week, including this fun set, Love Shack. For my project today, I thought I would create a Side-Step Fold Card (for a terrific tutorial, click HERE.) Keep reading for info on some fun giveaways!

TE is also releasing new dies this week, including this fun Jumbo Heart Border die. I used cardstock and patterned paper from the new Project Pantry and created this cute border, adding just a bit of glittery Stickles.
The "love shack" really is a sweet little house full of love. I colored mine with Copics, glittering up the happy hearts adorning the cozy cottage. The set also includes a sweet little picket fence and a cute tree, which I added to my side-step card.
I included three of the sentiments on my card -- I love the song that inspired his set and I couldn't resist putting some of the lyrics on this card! Love Shack is the first of a series of cozy little cottages, a fun concept from our DT Coordinator, Jami Sibley.
