Hi All! And a Very Happy Wednesday to you! Today I'm back to share more June Sneak Peeks! Yay! 8-) And just in case you didn't get a chance to stop by yesterday, All of the new products will be available for purchase Tomorrow, Thursday, June 5th at 7 am PST. You'll find it ALL in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions StoreYay!! 8-) & for a little Extra Fun...  

***Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win.

Well, today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple more Fun Sneak Peek projects and the first one features TE's PReviously Released Zinnia Bouquet stamp set along with the Brand New Zinnia Bouquet Die & the Brand New Lattice Cutting Plate as well!...8-)
Well, I'm not exactly sure who I', going to send this Cheery Birthday card too, but it's good to know I have it on hand when I need it, lol... I started off by stamping my sweet Zinnia Bouquet with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White CS and colored it up with my trusty Copics.  I cut it out with the help of the Brand New Zinnia Bouquet Die & popped it up with a bit of foam tape onto an SB Scallop Oval Die cut. 
My Mats and BG's were created with the New Lattice Cutting PlateAuthentiques Flourish 6x6 Bundle, American Crafts DIY Shop 6x6 collection, TE's Choice Buttercream CS and a little inking of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. To finish it all up, I  stamped my Many Minis Occasions sentiment directly onto a TE Mini Tags Die cut and added a Sweet little Burlap Twine bow... 8-)

Next up, for 'Designers Choice' I'm featuring TE's Brand New Big Bold Summer stamp set along with the Brand New Little Bits - Flip Flops Dies as well!... 8-) I just knew these two sets would compliment each other Perfect too! Yay!..8-)
Can you tell I was having lots of fun with my Distress Markers again LOL!! ;-) I must confess, once I get started with them, I have a hard time putting them down, lol.. I just love how easy they make it to get dreamy, summery watercolor looks! And then add in the Brand New Big Bold Summer Stamp set & Bam, talk about a match made in heaven! ;-)
I don't know about you, but I do a lot of summer reading and am always in need of Bookmarks, not to mention I love to give them out as well to my fellow bookworm Buddies. And I thought These would make Awesome Bookmarks for just such an occasion.. lol  I started off by doing a  little scribbling onto TE's Choice Watercolor CS with my Distress Markers and a mini mister with water and set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped my Big Bold Summer Sentiments with Colorbox Frost White ink and embossed with White EP...
My mats and BG layers were created with Basic Grey's Kneehighs 6x6 collection, a Woodgrain EF, TE's Choice Kraft CS, TE's Choice Buttercream CS , a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink, Bazzill CS & TE's Mark Your Spot Die as well. To finish up my Fun Summery Bookmarks, I added WeR Memory Keepers Wide eyelets, a bit of ribbon from my stash and Darling Flip Flop embellies created with TE's New Little Bits - Flip Flops Dies, popped it up with a bit of foam tape for little bit of fun dimension... ;-)
