Taylored Expressions July Release Day!

Hi all! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions! Yay! 
8-)  All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department.
And today, I'm back today to share a couple of Fun projects with you! So be forewarned this Post is a bit a picture heavy, lol 8-)
My first project features the new Bon Voyage set designed by Emily Berger for the Embracing Grace stamp line. Bon Voyage features 20 images and sentiments, is die cut and comes on a full color storage panel that fits perfectly into one of Taylor's Mini Binder Boxes for easy storage! 8-)
I decided to create a Sweet little card set and coordinating box to store them in. It's always good to have a few of these note card sets on hand, all boxed up and ready to go, just in case you need a quick last minute gift. 8-) 
I stamped a few of the Darling Sea Vessels with Memento Tuxedo black and colored them up with my trusty Copics. I fussy cut them out and popped them up with a bit of foam tape and added the fun waves with the Wave Border die and matted them up with the help of my Classic Circles Nesties sets.  My card bases were all embossed with the Wave/Bubbles Impression plate and all my mats and BG layers were created with a combination of kraft CS from my stash and Echo Parks 6x6 Paradise Beach collection. To finish them all up, I stamped my sentiment onto the Fly Your Flag 2 die cut tags, added a bit of Yummy bakers Twine. The Fabulous sketch is Jen's DS58. I just flipped it and made it a little smaller, lol 
Also I  Decorated the Window Box up with the same elements I used for my little Note Cards so everything would be well coordinated and all ready for gifting! 

Here's a a few more pics of this Sweet little card set... 8-)


Here are the Taylored Dies and Impression plates I used for this project..

And here's Jen Shults' Awesome DS58 sketch...

My next project features the Beach A la Carte Stamp Designed by Taylor Van Bruggen. And this joins our ever-growing series of Word A la Carte stamps and will be perfect for cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, party decor and so much more. I chose to create another Sweet little gift set with mine, cause It's just so perfect for Summer Celebrations! 8-)
I stamped my Beach A la Carte image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it up with my trusty Copics. My image was cut out with the help of my Classic Ovals and Scallop Ovals Nesties Sets and popped up with a bit of foam tape.  I stamped & colored up the Palm tree and Surfrboard a couple more times and fussy cut them out to pop up on both my card and gift card holder too!  My card's mats and BG layers were created with a combination of kraft CS from my stash and Echo Parks 6x6 Paradise Beach dp's. I finished up my card with some Champagne net ribbon, a shell button and some Yummy baker's twine.  
For my Gift card tin I also used the Cute little Coconut Umbrella drink, and sentiment stamps from the New Coconut Cove  set, wich I will get to show you more of tomorrow 8-), and the previously released Enjoy stamp set and coordinating Gift Card Frame Die too!. 

Here's a few more pics of this Fun gift set..

And here is the Taylored Die I used for this project...
