Happy Leap Year Day! Spring is definitely coming and, to get myself ready, I'm sneaky peeking two projects today for Taylored Expressions featuring the soon-to-be released set, Totally Tags Spring, and a fabulous new Taylored Die, A Tisket A Tasket.

For my first project, I created a frame for one of my favorite photos of my little rugrat, which is from his first Easter. I picked up this frame for $1 at my local giant superstore that will remain nameless but is easily recognized for its target-shaped logo (wink! wink!) and trimmed some happy patterned paper to fit. 




After coloring three of the adorable tags with Copics, I die-cut them with the coordinating Totally Tags dies. I just love that the tags can be used for treats, cards, and home decor projects for spring and Easter!


My card for today features the absolutely adorable new Taylored Die, A Tisket A Tasket. How cute is that 'lil basket? I really wanted the die to be the star of my card and I used the bright, happy paper to create a card that just screams SPRING! I die-cut a window frame in the patterned paper and included some grass. The sentiment is masked from the new Spring Cottage set and placed inside a previously-released Banner.
