Hi All! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Haven't you just Loved ALL the AWESOME Sneak Peeks the last few days!! I know I sure have!! Talk about LOTS of Amazing New Goodies!! Whoo Hoo! ;-) Well I've got some Really Great News!... All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the New Department. Yay!! Time to do some Shopping! Whoo Hoo! ;-) 

And today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple Fun New Release projects and the first one Features the Adorable Brand New A Lovely View stamp set  that  Coordinates Perfectly with TE's Brand New Display Window Die and all TE's previously released Window Stamps, Dies and accessories too! For my project today, I paired them both with TE's Blooming Hearts Cutting Plate as well. This is such a Darling set & I know you are going to have as much fun as I have, putting together all sorts of Fab projects for friends and family throughout the year! 8-)
I stamped my Sweet A Lovely View scene with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE's Choice Snow White CS & colored it up with my trusty Copics. I cut it out by hand and adhered it with a bit of  foam tape to TE's Brand New Display Window Die cut that I shaded with a touch of W1 and my Colorless Blender, for some Fun dimension... 8-)

My Mats and BG were created with TE's Choice Kraft CSTE's Choice Snow White CS, TE's Brand New Blooming Hearts Cutting Plate & Pebbles' Yours Truly 6x6 collection.  To finish it all up I stamped my Love Makes the World Go 'Round sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a hand cut banner tag and topped it all off with a layered heart embellie created with a few left over heart die cuts I had in my stash from a previous TE project.( Love when I get to use up some left overs! Yay!)...8-)

Next up for 'Designers Choice' I am featuring the Fun New Big Bold Valentine stamp set, TE's Brand New Marly Stamp set w/ Coordinating Die includedTE's New Love Makes the World Go 'Round stamp set along with TE's New Heart Stacklets Dies  & TE's New January KI Kit as well!... 8-)
OMGosh, can I just tell you, I Love how these turned out lol!! This was one of those projects that I knew all the elements I wanted to use, but had no clue how I was going to put them all together, lol.  Has that ever happened to you??.. Well I know the final layouts are pretty simple, but love how they show off the Fun Big Bold Valentine sentiments along with the Sweet Marley stamp & die set and he Darling Little Piggy's from the Love Makes the World Go 'Round set too! Yay! 8-)
I stamped my Sweet Marly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE's Choice Snow White CS & colored her up with my trusty Copics. I cut her out with the included coordinating die and adhered her to a TE Heart Stacklest Die cut I stamped & embossed with one of TE's Big Bold Valentine sentiments, then popped them both up with a bit of  foam tape. My Mats & BG layers were created with TE's Choice Kraft CS, TE's Brand New January KI Kit & TE's Medium Scallop Border Die... 8-) 
I went through pretty much the same steps & supplies with my Sweet 'So many Smiles' card, lol. I just fussy cut out my Adorable little Love Makes the World Go 'Round Piggies and used a bit of Pebbles Yours Truly 6x6 collection as well, which I was thrilled to see coordinates really well with TE's January KI Kit
too! Yay! Just Love when that happens! 8-)
