Hey there, today is the kick off for the TE March release!  Are you excited?  All of the products you see over the next few days will be available in the Fresh Out of the Oven section of the Taylored Expressions store.  To get things started, I'm going to give you a sneak peek of the From My Window stamp set and the Arched Window die.  Love, love, love this window die and all the different scenes you can create with it!

It was a lot of fun creating this cozy little home!  I found the perfect "wallpaper" and decided to do a little wainscoting on the lower half of the wall.  It was embarrassingly easy but looks awesome on the finished card!  I used a Scor-Pal to create the lines every 1/4 inch then used a horizontal strip to complete it.  The one thing I did to kind of set it off, was to use a couple Copic markers to add in some light shading.  That little bit of shading just makes the whole thing pop!  Ok...confession time!  My stamping room is a huge (and I mean huge) disaster!  I know I had some acrylic sheets that would have been perfect for the glass in the window, but I couldn't find any of it.  *sigh*  I just HAD to have glass in my I looked around and guess what I, er, well...I dove in my trash and recovered the packaging from the stamp sets.  Yikes!  I keep my stamps in Binder Boxes so I don't have a use for the packaging and they end up getting tossed.  They sure came in handy for this project though!  *grin*

Here's the inside...clean and simple yet it ties into the front.
