Hi guys, I’m so excited to share a sneak peek using some new products for Clearly Planned!  Jolly Holiday and Candy Cane Numbers are so sweet and I wanted to show you how they can be used for your planner and also for something not planner related, Christmas Tags!

I used both of these sets for a monthly layout.  The images in Jolly Holiday are so sweet and the sentiments are really cute.  I used the coordinating dies to die cut them and placed them in my layout.  There are also dies for Candy Cane Numbers and I really love how they look in my planner!

I also used Jolly Holiday and the dies to create some fun Christmas tags.  I love all the layers of the Build a Tag dies and used Build a Tag 3 for my project.  I also used Sweet Season for the candies and just love the little accents they add to my tags.

All of the new products and Clearly Planned products are being released on Thursday October 5 at 11AM PST….you won’t want to miss it!


Hi guys, I’m back with another sneak peek and to learn more about a special promotion using today’s sets, keep reading!  Today I wanted to share how I like to use inspirational quotes or Bible verses in my planner as a way to focus on what’s important.   A short verse or quote is a great reminder to focus on the good and to keep a good perspective.  I used Yahweh and embossed the sentiment in gold and also embossed the super cute pineapple from Super Sweet.  I love how my page looks with the gold embossing.  I also used another new set, Sassy Alpha with Sticky Situation – Two to create my “List”…I love the font in this alphabet!

Guess what?  There’s an awesome promotion on some of these stamp sets.

Hello!  I’m back today with a sneak peek for Clearly Planned and I can’t wait to share what’s coming later this week with you!  Today I used Fun in the Sun for my weekly layout and I love the images in this set.  I used the flip flops, swimsuit, drink, watermelon, grill and lawnmower, and I love how they are perfectly sized to fit in your pages.  There are also some fun and cute sentiments to coordinate with the images.  I also used Cheery Banners.  These banners are such a cute way to decorate your pages without losing any writing space.

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a card I made for Word Art Wednesday’s Anything Goes Challenge!  If you’re interested in an uplifting challenge and for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Taylored Expressions, check out all the details HERE.

For this card I used Notable Blooms Background stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder onto watercolor card stock.  I dug out Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and filled in most of image with these gorgeous colors.  I really enjoyed watercoloring this background, the white embossing really makes the color pop.  The sentiment is from So Very Blessed and I used black embossing on vellum for “simply” and Blessed Script die cut for “blessed”.  I framed it with one of my favorite frame die cuts, Stitched Frame Stacklets and added a few blooms from Build a Bookmark.

I’m so happy you stopped by, thank you!  I’d love for you all to play along…hope you all have a great week!


Hi everyone, I’m back today with my second sneak peek for Taylored Expressions Clearly Planned.  Today’s weekly layout incorporates two super fun sets, Make a Face and Today’s Mood.  

I think Make a Face is the cutest set, perfect for tracking moods or just noting what kind of day it was.  Paired with Today’s Mood, I was really able to customize my faces and loved “Hangry”.  Have you ever been hangry?  lol!  

I stamped the faces onto sticker paper, colored them and cut them out (so fast to do!).  I think they look adorable with Little Bits Mini Frame 1 and I loved how I was able to stamp the mood on the frame.  I will be making some of these fun faces for my daughter’s planner as well.

I also used a new alpha, Playful Alpha, to stamp out my daughter’s birthday.  I love the font so much!  Having the individual letters means I can space my letters exactly how I want them.  

There are so many awesome new products being released, I can hardly wait to share my last sneak peek tomorrow!  All of the new products will be available Thursday, November 3 at 7am PST.  Has anything caught your eye yet?  🙂


Hi guys, I’m back with a super sweet card that shows how easy it is to use pattern paper to create a scene.  For today’s project I used Door to Door, Door to Door Roof, Door to Door Winter Decor, Door to Door Decor and Door to Door Molding, and Build a Scene Christmas Paper Pack to create my cozy look.

I really love how Door to Door Molding has the cut out windows.  I chose the tree and fireplace pattern paper so we would be able to get a ‘cozy view’ of the living room.  I always find it cozy in the winter to drive by homes and see the Christmas trees lit up.  I also used the green polka dotted pattern paper from the same paper pack for the garland and the layering piece on the wreath.   It may be hard to see, but I really like how the roof and molding have the embossed lines on them.

I hope you all have a great week, thanks for stopping by!


Hi guys, it’s Release Day (YAY!) and all of the new products are now available at Taylored Expressions.  I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this month’s release.  

I am not one to usually use pink as a Christmas color but I wanted to step outside the box and give it a try.  I used an previously released stamp set, Simply Stamped Pinecones along with a new release, Ornamental and Die Combo, for my card.  I used Playful Patterns paper pack and Stitched Oval Stacklets to frame my images.  I stamped the pinecones and pine branches and put vellum over the image.  I love how it softens the look! 


I used a sentiment from Ornamental and stamped it directly onto the vellum, then added a few sequins and the ornaments.  


I finished the card by adhering the ornaments with foam tape.  I love dimension in my projects!  I hope you’ll go take a peek at the new goodies being released today.  Thanks for stopping by!
