Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks - In OtherWords - Read & Little Bits Schoolhouse! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Monday to you!! Welcome to our August 2014 Sneak Peeks! 8-) We've got Soo many Fabulous New Goodies this month! We'll be sharing tons of Awesome inspiration all the way through Thursday! Whoo Hoo!! 8-) And I just know you all are going to LOVE Everything! I know I sure have! ;-) & 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. 

Also, All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, August 7th at 7 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 In Other Words - Read Stamp set (which coordinates with TE's Mark Your Spot Bookmark Die too! )... ;-)

I seem to be on a big bookmark kick lately, lol! So when I saw this fun set, I just  had to create a couple more, lol...;-)  If you are an avid reader like me, you can never have too many bookmarks on hand! Plus they're fun to tuck into a card for an extra 'little something' for a friend or loved one! ;-)
I stamped my Fun In Other Words-Read  stack of books image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE's Choice Snow White CS, colored them up with my trusty Copics & cut them out with the help of TE's Banner Stacklets 2 Dies. I inked my edges with a touch of Vintag Photo Distress ink and adhered them to my bookmark bases created with Larger Layered Banner Stacklets 2 Die cuts. 
My Mats and BG were created with TE's Choice Kraft CSSimple Stories Good Day Sunshine 6x6 collectionTo finish it all up I added We R Memeory KEepers Wide eyelets and a bit of ribbon from my stash! Pretty easy Peasy, but oh so much Fun!...;-) 

Next up I'm featuring TE's Brand New Little Bit Schoolhouse Dies along with the Brand New Pencil Topper Die as well to create some Super Fun Back to School Goodies!... ;-)
Can I just tell you I LOVE how these Darling toppers turned out! 8-) And I had so much Fun putting their Sweet Back to School scenes together too! I'm Loving  TE's Sweet Little Bits Dies! I tell ya!...;-)
To my Fun Back to School Pencil toppers I used TE's New Little Bits Schoolhouse Die, TE's Little Bits Sun & Cloud Dies, TE's Grass Border Die and popped them all onto my Layered Topper base created with the help of TE's Brand New Pencil Topper Die as well. My Mats and BG were created with Various Bazzil CS's TE's Choice Snow White CS & American Crafts DIY Shop and a bit of shading with a touch of Tumbled Glass Distress ink. To finish them all up I just popped them onto a few Brand Spanking New #2 Pencils!... 8-)

We have lots more Amazing Goodies in store for you this morning, so hop on
