Summer Engagement...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day Three!

Day Three of Sneak Peeks for Taylored Expressions! Today we switch gears a little (as hard as it is to give up those babies!) and turn toward summer and celebration.

The first of my two projects today features the lovely new Summer Wreath petite set that coordinates with the fabulous Seasonal Wreath die that you've seen here on TSB before. I love how perfectly sunshiny the flowers and butterflies are and I created a clean and simple card to usher in my favorite season, which is just around the corner!

My next project is very special because someone very close to us has just gotten engaged! I can't spill their beans for them, but I could make them a fun card to help them celebrate.

So, I was so excited to see one of the most innovative and unique sets I've ever laid eyes on -- the new It's in the Bag, which has a coordinating dies that makes the most darling, adorable shopping bags and labels, just perfect for gift tags and gift giving. I have to admit that I am a sucker for that beautiful little blue Tiffany & Co. box and bag, and that I was lucky enough to get something in one for Valentine's Day from my little rugrat and his daddy. I save everything, so the ribbon and the tissue paper are actually from Tiffany! The sweet little wedding bells fit perfectly inside the die-cut label (which, incidentally, have coordinating frame stamps in It's in the Bag!) There are icons for many, many occasions and sentiments to match.
