Taylored Expressions August Spotlight Day! 8-)

Hi All! And a very Happy Friday to you! Hope you have been enjoying all the Fabulous New August Goodies we have been sharing with you all! What a FAbulous Release huh?...8-)  Well, the Release Party continues! Yay! Today we will be Spotlight all the Fabulous sets so you'll find even more tasty little morsels of inspiration presented by the Baker's Dozen featuring everything that is Fresh Out of the Oven from Taylored Expressions! 8-)

The project I am sharing today features The New Grid Paper A la Carte Stampthe Super Fun Library Pocket Die, the Chevron Border Dies and the and Notepaper & Clipboard Dies as well!  Which gave me the Perfect Excuse to put together a fresh and funky notecard set! 8-)
Can you tell I had some fun with these!! 8-) I don't normally put so many funky patterns and bright colors together, but I really Loved October Afternoon's Whimsical Retro 9 to 5 collection and I'm really happy with how this set turned out! Plus it was a blast getting to play with all the fun New dies! 8-)

I used the Library Pocket Die to cut out the kraft pocket. Then I stamped the Grid Notepaper ALC with Memento Rich Cocoa & the Doodle Notes Sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it out with the Notepaper & Clipboard Dies & It fits perfectly inside the pocket. So Cool! 8-) I paired my Ocotober Afternon 9 to 5 dp's with Cardstock that All came from the July Key Ingredient Kit. My Borders were created with the New Chevron Border Dies. The Decorative detail on my library pockets were created with SB Classic Circles and Ovals die cuts, popped up with a bit of foam tape and I added some twine. The Fab Sketch is Jen Shults's DS63 

I used one of our New Bigger Bitty Bags to create a little bag to hold my notecard set & decorated it to coordinate! I created a closure flap too with the TE Frame It Up 1 Die. 8-)  All it needs is to have a recipents name written on the ledger section of the gift bag, a Bow and it's all ready for gifting. 8-) 

Hop on over to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you today... 8-)

Here are the Supplies I used for my Projects today and you can find them at the TE Store...
 Hope you all have a Wonderful day& thanks so much for stopping in! 8-)
