Yahweh – Clearly Planned Sneak Peek

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.

Fun in the Sun – Clearly Planned SNEAK PEEK

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.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more sneak peeks and the next two days for information about a special promotion we’re running!  All of the new Clearly Planned products will be released on Thursday May 18, 2017 at 7AM PST.  Thanks for stopping by!


Word Art Wednesday

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!


It’s Release Day!

It’s release day at Taylored Expressions and all of the new Clearly Planned products are now available!  I had so much fun with these products.  Christmas Critters was one of my favorites as the critters are truly sweet and so fun to color.  There are some awesome list stamps that I’ll be using throughout the year and I love the new Flag It dies.  Did you see anything that caught your eye?  

Be sure to come back next week as I’ll have a new twist on how to use Clearly Planed stamps in your planner.  Thanks for stopping by!


Choose Happy

Hi guys, today is the last day for sneak peeks and I have one final layout to share with you.  This one uses Happy Girl and I love how sweet she is!  I stamped her onto cardstock and colored her with Copics, then cut her out and placed her exactly where I wanted her.  I stamped confetti around her and her happiness is so catchy!  

I used Sign Me Up for her banner and “give hugs” note.  I also used two new alphas, Doodle Me Alpha and Playful Alpha, I’m crazy about these fonts!  Last but not least, Day by Day and  Sticky Situation Three proved to be helpful with my menu planning for next week.  I’m loving how versatile the sticky notes are!  Release day is tomorrow, Nov 3rd, at 7 AM PST…it’s going to be exciting!


Make a Face

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?  🙂


Christmas Critters Monthly Layout

Hi everyone, I’m back with a super fun sneak peek for your planner!  I’m so excited for this month’s Clearly Planned Release!  Sneak peeks start today (yay!) and everything will be available Thursday, November 3rd at 7AM PST.  

Christmas Critters is simply put, a must have, for your planner.  The little critters are adorable and didn’t take much to get me into the holiday spirit.  This set comes with dies that are purchased separately, however, I loved using them so I could put my critters exactly where I wanted them . There are so many words for lists and reminders to stamp in the signs of the penguin and bear.  It’s a fun way customize your signs.

I’m super excited about this release, there are so many goodies you’re not going to want to miss!  I hope you come back tomorrow to see another sneak peek!
