Papercrafting with Taylored Expressions – more new products and a chance to WIN!
It’s that time again, time for another round of new papercrafting product releases from Taylored Expressions.
But this latest release is extra special – wanna know why?
It’s their birthday this month!
And the best part?
You get the presents!
Check out their newest products, and follow the giveaway rules, and you’ll have a chance to WIN some fun new goodies!
More on that as soon as we take a look at the newest stamps and dies Taylored Expressions has to share…
The Taylored Expressions September release is fun, fun, fun!
It’s all about birthdays and Halloween – who doesn’t love birthdays and Halloween?
Here are just some of the fun stamps and dies,
and other supplies, they’ve created for YOU!
I love the name of this stamp set – Mischief Maker Carried Away!
And doesn’t that little girl look like she could cause some mischief?
Looks like she already has – she tied balloons to her pup and he’s about to float off into the sky!
If you have little ones to make cards for then this And Many More stamp set is sure to make it easy and fun!
I love the little bird with the balloons and the “SUPER Tweet” sentiment that matches him perfectly.
Of course that little penguin is cute too – he’s perfect for delivering the message “Chill on your birthday.”
If balloons are your thing, then this Little Bits Balloons dies set is a must-have.
Grab your paper scraps and start die-cutting your little heart out and you’ll soon have a stash of balloons for cards and pages for your favorite birthday girl or boy (and a lot less scraps to store!).
I LOVE the “EAT CAKE” sentiment in the In & Out Birthday stamp set!
Of course that could be because I’m trying to lose some weight and cake is off-limits right now!
But of course, it’s not off-limits for birthday boys and girls and this collection of sayings are perfect for making cards for both of them.
How about some “bitty” sayings?
This collection, Little Bits of Birthday, is just the thing for happy party decor – imagine a paper tablecloth stamped with these sayings.
O.K. admit it, you laughed out loud when you saw these little Party Grumplings stamps, right?
Well if you didn’t, you need to take another look at them…and at the funny sayings that go along with their grumpy expressions!
My favorite saying?
“Woo Frickin’ Hoo!”
How perfect for someone who’s not exactly delighted about having another birthday!
Of course, those little Party Grumplings above would be even better if they could be easily cut out and popped up.
Well, luckily, they can be!
Just grab this matching set of dies, the Party Grumplings dies, and you’re well on your way.
If “make party invitations” is on your to-do list, then the Up, Up & Away Cutting Plate should be on your shopping list.
How quick and easy would it be to cut this design out, apply it to card fronts and add “You’re Invited?”
Quick invites for sure!
If bling’s your thing, then these Double the Fun Girl Sequins likely have you giddy!
And there’s a Double the Fun Boy Sequins version as well!
I’d love to have a whole line of colorful bottles like this one staring back at me from my shelves – how about you?
Heck, I might even use them! 😉
And finally, there’s a festive collection of patterned papers and matching cardstock – the Matched Kit Double the Fun Papers.
Who doesn’t love 6×6 paper pads?
Wow, who’s ready to celebrate a birthday?
We are, we are!
And the collection of stamps, dies, sequins and papers above will do the trick whether you’re making cards, layouts or party decorations.
Now don’t forget to check out the rest of the birthday-themed products (yes, there are more!).
And now, it’s time to celebrate Halloween!
I love the collection of words in the Little Bits of Halloween stamp set.
Can’t you see creating a “subway art” block of text with these and placing it on a scrapbook layout?
Or, using some of the adjectives to describe your little ghosts and goblins dressed in their Halloween costumes?
These Little Bits – Halloween Scene dies are just the thing for creating lots of little page or card accents.
And, they’re small enough to be used on that collection of scraps we all have – time to crash your stash!
The Halloween Treat Toppers dies are just the thing for making cupcake toppers – just add a toothpick to the back and voila!
But don’t stop there – slip a piece of baker’s twine through the opening in the die cut and you have quick and easy treat-bag tags!
If pumpkins are your thing then the Sack It Pumpkin die set is a must-have!
Just like the other Taylored Expressions Sack It dies, this die set is designed to make it easy to create sacks, sacks for treats!
Be sure to check out the sample projects for this fun die set!
I know the Spooky Trees Cutting Plate is meant for creating trees for Halloween projects, but I think it’d be perfect for so much more!
I can see cutting out the trees and adding multi-colored Fall leaves to their branches, or cutting the trees from dark red paper and adding punched pink hearts for Valentine’s Day projects.
Or, creating “stained glass” by cutting this out of acetate and adding alcohol inks to the sections.
What do you think?
Perhaps you have even more ideas for using this cutting plate?
I bet you do!
I have to have this Tangled Web Embossing Folder!
Besides the many possibilities for using it on Halloween pages and cards, I see it being used as a framework for Zentangles!
I can’t wait to get my hands on this and fill it with repeated shapes and patterns!
The Zig Zag Embossing Folder is actually a part of the birthday products release, but I think it’d be ideal for Halloween as well.
How about embossing pieces of orange cardstock and inking the raised zig-zags with black ink?
Or, embossing some of the Hocus Pocus papers below?
Lots of creative options for this new product!
More bling! Again, if bling’s your thing, then Taylored Expressions has you covered!
These Hocus Pocus Sequins NEED to be added to your Halloween papercrafted projects!
The colors are perfectly suited to the papers below, but I see other uses as well.
The green sequins, when lined up appropriately, could become a lovely Christmas tree!
And again, we have a perfectly matched set of 6×6 papers and cardstock – the Matched Kit Hocus Pocus Papers.
How fun are the patterns?
I’m partial to the paper with the candy on it. 🙂
O.k., I’ll admit it, I have a definite sweet tooth and staying away from sweets at this time of year is hard!
If Halloween is a time for partying and fun in your house, then the newest Halloween-themed products we shared above (and the other new Halloween products on the Taylored Expressions site) are just the ticket – the stamps and dies, embossing folders, and sequins and papers are sure to make marking the occasion even more fun!
