Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peeks: Wine!

I'm playing along again for the second day of November sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions. This release has so many fun dies that coordinate with new and existing sets, but today I decided to combine the Pockets & Pages Bubble In die with another favourite of mine—wine! This die is perfect for framing pictures and almost any sentiment you might want to include on a scrapbook page or card. I thought these Witty Wine Quotes were just cheeky enough to stand on their own with very little embellishment.

For my second card, I flipped the die to point the quote bubble in the opposite direction and tipped it slightly to fit the sentiment. I also included the corkscrew and one of the wine glass charms to the frame.

Have fun seeing what the TE Baker's Dozen baked up today...

Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peek: Pockets & Pages

It's the first day of TE sneak peeks for November and I'm playing along tooTaylor is introducing a new line of products designed for pocket scrapbooking—Pockets & Pages. I was first introduced to scrapbooking when my twins were born. Today they turned 15 and I have so much to catch up on—important events, celebrations, trips...but also with daily life and pages dedicated to telling them who I am. The essential elements TE is releasing this week are perfect for quick and meaningful scrapbooking. Once I get my photos and thoughts organized, I will be back with scrapbooking inspiration in my hybrid style, but for today I used a few Pockets & Pages dies on this card:

I've framed a fun picture of my gorgeous niece with the 3"x4" bubble callout die and stamped "InstaLOVE" from the Pockets & Pages {InstaFun} petite stamp set, which I highlighted with a touch of smooch. The background is cut with layers from the 4"x6" collection of Pockets & Pages dies. An instant birthday card for Morgana today! Imagine these same elements popped into a pocket-style scrapbook page protector.

Check out today's talented line up...
