Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks - Poinsettia Bouquet & Little Bits Gingerbread Man! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Tuesday to you! Today I'm back to share more October 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, Thursday, October 2nd at 7 am PST. You'll find it ALL in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions StoreYay!! 8-)

And don't forget, 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. Yay!! ;-)

Well, today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple more Fun Sneak Peek projects and the first one features the previously released Poinsettia Bouquet, the Perfectly coordinating Brand New Poinsettia Bouquet Die and TE's Brand New Sheet Music Embossing Folder too!...8-)

I stamped TE's Beautiful Poinsettia Bouquet with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored it up with my trusty Copics. I cut it out with the help of TE's Brand New Poinsettia Bouquet Die and popped it up with a bit of foam tape. 
My Mats and BG layers were created with Bazzill CS, TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS, TE's Brand New Sheet Music Embossing Folder, a touch of shading with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and some Festive patterned papers from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas 6x6 collection. And to finish it all up I stamped my Poinsettia Bouquet Sentiment onto a layered hand cut banner tag and added a fun little Poinsettia embellie from my stash & the Fab Sketch is SSSC238... ;-)

Next up, I'm featuring the Brand New Little Bits Gingerbread Man Die, TE's Brand New Label Stacklets 9 Dies & TE's Matched Gingerbread Lane Paper Pack & CS to create some Super Sweet Christmas tags! I don't know about you but I go through Lots and Lots of Christmas tags each year, and I always try to make a bunch up in advance so I will have them on hand and ready to go!..8-) 
Aww, I just LOVE how these turned out too! So Fun and Festive!! And they were Super quick and easy to put together too!! And you know I am Loving that!... 8-)
I started off by cutting out my Sweet Gingerbread Men with the help of TE's Brand New LittleBits Gingerbread Man Die & cut a few extras out of different colors of CS so I could give each one a different bow tie... 8-)
Next I adhered each of my Cute little Gingerbread men to TE Label Stacklets Die cuts after inking the edges with coordinating Distress inks, then stamping them with my Bushel & A Peck Sentiments and popping them up with some foam tape... 8-)
Next I created my tag bases with the help of TE's Brand New Label Stacklets 9 Die cuts & TE's Matched Gingerbread Lane Paper Pack & CS.  And to finish them all up I added We R Memory Keepers Wide Eyelets and a some fun ribbon from my stash!... 8-)
