Taylored Expressions Release Day: Season of Giving

Woo-hoo! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions and I got to play along with my friends on The Baker's Dozen. I have some fun tags and a Christmas card to share with you today! 
For my first project, I created some fun tags with the new Build a Tag 1, which just may be my favorite new die. It makes the sweetest little tags!

First up is one for the holidays. I used TE's Gingerbread Lane patterned paper for my background and I absolutely love how the die cuts the "stitches" in the frame. I also used TE's new Punchables - Christmas pre-printed sheets and punched out the "Spread Cheer" sentiment. It was so easy and made the tag go fast, fast, fast. I finished off with the "Just for You" sentiment stamped inside the die-cut banner from Small Packages. And don't forget the pretty ribbon!

My next tag is similar, but this time, I created a tag for a birthday (you can never have enough of those around!) I again used a sentiment from Small Packages and then added one of the new Skinny Mini Borders along the bottom. So wee and cute! I also added a Little Bits Present to really make things Festive, matching it to the Double the Fun patterned paper from TE.

My next project was a Christmas card. I chose bright, bold colors because I really wanted it to pop. I used the new Pockets & Pages 3x4 Banner w/Bonus die - the bonus? That cool "dec" die cut! 

I paired the banner frame with the new and very chic looking Loop-de-loo Cutting Plate and added a Little Bits Holly for just a pop of green. The numbers and the "No Peeking" sentiment are from the previously released Christmas Countdown

All new products are now available in the TE Store! Be sure to visit the TE Blog for a list of all my buddy designers for tons of Release Day inspiration!

Sweet tags Regina. Love the fun papers. The card is so pretty. Love how you used the banner die and made it look so elegant with the basic red and white.

Love the colorful and bold tags, Regina. Perfect embellishments for gifts this holiday season. Great use of the Pocket & Pages Journaling die as the focal point of your card. Thank you for the inspiration.
