TE March Sneak Peeks: If Dogs Could Talk

Hello Hello!

I’m excited to pop in today with a sneak peek at a set I illustrated for the Taylored Expressions March Release. I actually have two sets this month: If Dogs Could Talk and If Cats Could Talk, but I’m only sharing a peek of the first today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a couple of cards that use the second set.

I used the set and the previously released Build A Tag 2 die det to create a cute set of tags. I was in the mood for texture so I cut five white tags and then cut five more from various texture-y stuff: felt, wood veneer, and cork. I then layered the texture-y stuff to the white tags and added a jumbo eyelet.


After that I stamped the pups on white cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. I then stamped the pups on designer paper and paper pieced the images. I used a different face stamp on each dog. You read that right – there are 8 different faces so you can give the puppy a variety of moods. :) I was so excited when Taylor okayed the concept. And, as usual, the Taylored Expressions team came up with some great coordinating sentiments.

I thought you would like to see each tag close up. First, we have a pup who was just told something mind boggling…


This one has had a bad day…


This little guy is just extra happy to see you…


And sometimes you just need to sport a cheesy grin…


Of course, there are also those days when you have a tummy ache…


So which is your favorite? I’d be delighted to know.
