Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks - Totally Tags Occasions & From Me to You! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Tuesday to you! Welcome to our September Sneak Peeks! 8-) I'm SOOO Excited to Share TE is Celebrating its 5th Birthday! Whoo Hoo!! We'll be having lots of Fun classic party games that you can play along in every day! Yay! Sure hope you will all play along with us & join in the celebration 8-) Not to mention, we've also got Lots of Awesome New Goodies this month & tons of Fun inspiration to share with you too, today through Friday. All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, September 5th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
Today I am sharing a couple of Fun Projects and the first one features the Brand New Totally Tags - Occasions stamps set, the 6th set in the Totally Tags collection & coordinates with the Totally Tags Dies too! & I Absolutely LOVE these Super Sweet stamps & dies!! They make it so easy to make such Fabulous gift tags for all kinds of occasions! Yay! 8-)  I Know I will Definitely  be reaching for them again & again!!... 8-)
Well, for my project today, I thought I'd put together some fun Dog treat bags for a couple of my neighbors Sweet pups! They (aka: Adorable little Fur-Balls Sparky & Rags) are always dashing over to share some love, licks and happy wagging tails with me and my Hubby. So this Fun New set gave me the Perfect Inspiration to create these Fun treat bags filled with yummy Organic Peanut Butter Doggie snacks just for them!... 8-)
I stamped my Adorable Totally Tags Occasions Dog Treats images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto TE's Choice Snow White CS and colored them up with my trusty Copics. I cut them out with the help of the Totally Tags Dies, matted them up and popped them up with a bit of Foam tape. The Mats and BG layers of my Bag Toppers and Tags were created with Basic Grey's Max & 
Whiskers Collection..Have had it in my stash Forever, but thought it was too perfect not to use for my Fun Doggie Treats lol. I also used TE's Banner Stacklets 1 Dies & TE's Label Stacklets 4 Dies too. To finish them all up I just punched a couple of holes in each of my bag toppers, threaded through some ribbon from my stash and tied them both up with cute little bows! Pretty easy peasy, huh?... 8-) I sure hope they like them!

Next up I am featuring our Fun New From Me to You Petite Stamp & Die FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE SET...This Fun set is NOT available for sale at this time. Only your order of $50 or more (before tax and shipping) qualifies you to receive this Darling petite stamp set and die combo! (a $17 value Yay!).

Such a Fun set too! So great for all types of occasions! And my project featuring it today, Also kicks off our Very 1st Party Game to commence the Celebration of our 5th Birthday!! Whoo Hoo! Sure hope you can play along!...8-)

Well for my project today, I chose to go with the Diagonal! Use Rhinestones, Make a Birthday Card & Use Ribbon... 8-)
I stamped my Sweet From Me to You sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black onto TE's Choice White CS and cut it out with the help of the included coordinating Die too! I added a touch of shading with my Trusty Copics, matted it up and popped it up with a bit of foam tape.
My Mats & BG Layes were created with TE's Choice Kraft CS, TE's Brand New Bloomin' Stacklets 1 Dies, TE's Poster Graphic #'s, TE's From the Desk Of Dies & Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 Collection. To finish it all up I added some pretty ribbon from my stash, a Fun flourish created with TE's Curly Swirlies Dies, a Sweet layered Flower created with TE's Friendship Blooms Dies, Petal Pop Up's 2 Dies, all topped off with a pretty iridescent rhinestone & TE's Mini Leaves Die cuts too... 8-)
