Hey there, I'm back with more sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September Release.  All 21 of the new stamps and dies will be available for purchase starting tomorrow at 8am PST.  The Birthday Bash Preview Party is happening tonight at 8pm PST at the TE Facebook page.  You'll see many of the new products revealed and learn how you can win one of four $25 gift certificates to the won't want to miss it!  Today's game is i-Spy..all of the details, including how to win a gift certificate, can be found on Taylor's blog.

My first project is a card made with Too Cute To Spook.  This set comes with nine sentiments and eight images, so there are lots and lots to choose from!  I went with this image because it reminded me of my son's first Halloween...he was the cutest little pumpkin-head ever!  He was stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  The pattern papers are from the Halloween Project Pantry Kit featuring Doodlebug's Halloween Parade.  The plaid paper was cut using the new Label Stacklets 6 and the bats are from the new Gothic Window Accessories.  Did you catch that?  There's a new window die!  Eep!  The Spooky Fence Border is an oldie but a goodie and was the perfect touch for this card!

My next project uses the Bag It & Tag It set.  The idea for this set came from Taylor wanting to make little muslin treat bags for Halloween.  I love the idea and think they will be perfect for my littlest trick-or-treaters.  When my son was too little to go door-to-door, we would dress him up and drive to visit family members.  My in-laws lived on the lake and NEVER saw trick-or-treaters.  Since we drove that far, we would go and visit a few of their neighbors too.  He was too little for candy, so they would give him money.  I thought it was a wonderful idea and have done it ever since!  So these "money bags" will go to three very special little goblins.  Remember my great-nephew from yesterday?  Well he has a little red-headed brother, Josh.  One of these bags will be for him, and the other two will be for my neighbor's little ones.

They were super easy to make.  I've been wanting to try stamping on fabric for a while and was excited to give it a try.  I put a scrap piece of card stock inside the bag then stamped on them with Tuxedo Black.  Each of the bags has a sentiment on one side and an image on the other that was colored with Copic markers (if you color directly on the bag, make sure you have card stock inside so the markers don't bleed through to the other side).  Ribbon from the Halloween Project Pantry Kit complete the bags.
