Good morning, crafty friends! It’s the last day of sneak peeks before all of our new products are available for purchase at the TE webstore! Set your alarm for 7am PST tomorrow and come check out the latest goodies! I know some of you aren’t ready for Valentine’s Day yet,  but if you think about it, any day is a good day to tell someone how much you love them! Today we’re taking a blast to the past to revisit some of our favorite love songs. I’m willing to bet you’ll leave today’s blog hop with more than a couple ear worms to keep you going throughout the day (you can thank me later *grin*)!

Just in case you’ve missed out on the last two days, let me start by telling you about our December Release special offer which includes this beautiful, new cutting plate design:

And now on to the sneak peeks for today! Melody Rupple designed a beautiful shaker card using the new Musical Background and one of the sentiments from our new set featuring love song lyrics:

I love how she stamped the Musical Background in Toffee ink for a more subtle, aged look. I think this card would be perfect for a momentous anniversary or of course, Valentine’s Day!


Jean Manis also used the Musical Background stamp along with two of our new music themed Little Bits:

The black, white, red, and grey is such a striking color combination. This would be simple to mass-produce a stunning set of ‘just a note’ cards for any music lover!


In keeping with the music theme, designer Kim Singdahlsen is throwing it back to the era of records with our new Little Bits – Record die!



I love her clever layout and how the inner circles of the records match the outer squares! Another clean and simple card that’s sure to put a smile on the face of the “oldie but goodie” in your life!


Next up, we’re continuing with the Little Bits dies, but heading in a little different direction with the adorable Tandem Bike.

Melody paired up her glittered bicycle for two with yesterday’s feature set How Sweet It Is and Loved Script die. And you don’t want to miss that fun pattern in the background created with the new Loopy Loops embossing folder!


The versatile Falling Hearts Cutting Plate will be a go-to for so many occasions…bridal/baby showers, Valentine/love theme, and now that I’ve seen Jen’s fabulous card below, I’ll be using it for ‘congrats on your new home’ cards too!




There’s one more thing I don’t think I’ve shown you yet and that’s our latest ink colors. This month, Sprinkles, Potato Chip, and Lavender Glaze are making their debut in full size pads, mini pads, and refills!

I’ll be live on the Taylored Expressions Facebook page today at 2pm so if you’re around come spend a little time with me in the TE Studio as I walk through a few of my favorite products, create our release party make and take with you, and answer any questions you might have!

And before you head out, I have one more Question of the Day for you to answer. After featuring love song lyrics today, I thought it would be fitting to ask…
