Hey there, I'm back with more sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions April Release...I'm really excited to share my projects today!  I just LOVE these new stamps and dies!  So without further ado...I have two projects to share.

Here in my neck of the woods, people bleed purple and gold!  You might have already figured that out though.  *grin*  I used several new products for this card/gift bag combo.  To start with, let me introduce you to this cutie pie, Moka Jerome.  Adorable, huh?  He was stamped with Tuxedo Black on Neenah card stock then colored with Copic markers.  The Instant Photo Frames die that was released last month is perfect for this little guy!  Check out that glittery, gold's the larger of the new Ric Rac Border dies.  The sparkly border is just what this card needed!  The background was embossed with the Stars Impression Plate and to tie into the star theme, a couple stars from the Seeing Stars die were popped up.

Here's the inside...more Bazzill paper to match the front, another gold Ric Rac Border and the Poster Graphic #'s was used for the year.

SKIN:  E11, E01, E00, R30  HAIR:  E44, E43, E42, E41  CAP/GOWN:  V17, V15, V12  TASSEL/TIE:  Y17, Y15, Y11, Y0000  DIPLOMA:  Y17, Y15, Y11, Y0000, C3, C1, C00  SHIRT:  C1, C00  SKY:  Y17, Y15, Y11, Y0000

Next up is the gift bag...more specifically, the tag for the bag.  Did you notice the awesome new Tag Stacklets 1 dies?  Awe-some!  I can already tell I'll be using them a lot!  The same Bazzill paper that was used on the card was also used to cut out the tag then Graphic Greetings Graduate was embossed in white.  A second tag was cut from Neenah card stock and embossed with the Stars Impression Plate.  The gold Ric Rac Border and popped up stars match the card.  The Grad Cap die was cut from Neenah then colored with Copic markers.  I had so much fun on this project!
