Taylored Expressions Release Week: Day 3

Welcome to Day Three of Taylored Expressions AugustΒ Sneak Peek Week! If you missed my other two posts earlier this week,Β  I’ll link you up down below. πŸ™‚

Today, I am sharing a fun Halloween card featuring Flip the WebΒ andΒ Handlettered Halloween sets.

I love simple Halloween cards because that means I can make several and actually send them! ❀

I outlined the web with Copic Markers to create a different effect. These Handwritten Sentiments are just the best! πŸ™‚

Next up, I have a card I made with the new Flip the Script–I am looking forward to making some Tags with this in Fall!

Behind the vellum, I added the TE Halloween Sequins–it’s super fun, but doesn’t show up in this photo. πŸ™‚

So fun!

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Day 2

Welcome back to Day Two of Taylored Expressions August Release Week! If you missed my post yesterday sharing day one, I’ll link you up down below. πŸ™‚

This first card features one of the cutest new sets:  Simply Smitten. ❀ ! This little bear is so sweet!

I thought it would be adorable if he held a sign. πŸ™‚ This sentiment is from the Simple Strips: Friendship. LOVE.

This is one of my favorite cards from this release. Such a little cutie!

Next up, I have these Autumn Treat Boxes!

These were so fun to make and now to have on hand for the fall! πŸ™‚

I embossedΒ  these before using the die to cut the little boxes. After cutting the boxes, I stamped them. They are simply adorable and perfect for giving little treats this fall–or changing up decor and giving anytime! πŸ™‚ So quick and easy to put together–truly!

Halloween Treats!

Happy Friday! If you are looking for my Paper Smooches October Pep Rally Blog Hop post (phew! That’s a title!), please click HERE to get THERE! πŸ™‚


Today, I’m sharing these super-duper fun treat bags I whipped up for Halloween! I made these pretty quick and easy, so they could be mass-produced for giving! These all used Paper Smooches spooky new Halloween Card dies! As you can see, “spooky” is also translated to *super cute* here. πŸ˜‰

I’m still looking forward to making a few more of these and some quick little Halloween cards to mail. Check out the Paper Smooches shop for really fun examples! I freaking love Savannah O’Gwynn’s little ghost card! Oh my word! And then Kim made a cutie monster Frankenstein! Gah!! And Laurie Schmidlin created the most lovable little green monster! Seriously inspired! Soooo stinkin’ FUN!! πŸ™‚

All the new Paper Smooches can be found over at theΒ  PS online store! And get ready, because the NEW Release will be available Tomorrow NIGHT, Saturday at 8pm PT! πŸ™‚ Weeeeeeee!!!

Have an awesome weekend!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Happy Halloween!

Popping in quick, to say Happy Halloween!!

hawkins_jill_happy-halloween_wmThese Monster stamps and dies are all from Avery Elle! Soooooo fun! I have been pining to get my hands on them, and I took the opportunity to borrow a friend’s at our recent crafty retreat! Love these little guys! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_happy-halloween_00_wmI colored them with Copic Markers, die cut, and then pieced it all together. This AE Burst die though! πŸ™‚ Top of my AE wishlist. I used it at least 10 times while there. Fantastic!

Ok…gotta blaze the day! Have a fun Halloween! πŸ™‚ ❀
