Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Pockets & Pages Circle Words and Essentials

I'm back with Day #2 of the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks!  Today, it's all about the Pockets & Pages products and there are 5 new dies in that product line along with a new alphabet set with matching numbers!  It is a scrapbookers dream!!!

I decided to start a new 2013 Highlights scrapbook using a 6" x 8" Album, calendar pages and page protectors from Simple Stories.  Each month will just have a few pages with what we did during the month.  The products from Simple Stories pair up perfectly with the Taylored Expressions Pockets & Pages product line.  Highlighted on my first page is the brand new Pockets & Pages Circle Word Dies.  The "Sweet" die from this 6-die set, was just what I needed to showcase the scrumptious beignets we had while at the Cafe du Monde in New Orleans.  YUMMY!!!    I also used the new Pockets & Pages 2x2 Essentials Die set for the arrows ~ you'll see more from this die set on other pages in this post.

On this page, I also used the Pockets & Pages Calendar Stamp set (March) stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink; Pockets & Pages 3x4 Essentials for the photo frames.  In addition, many of the Simple Stories products in the TE Store also work great with these pages ~ Simple Stories Daily Grind 6x6 paper pad; the SN@P Typeset Stickers & the SN@P Alphabet stickers.

The supplies for this next coordinating page included: Pockets & Pages Circle Word Dies; Pockets & Pages 2x2 Essentials Die for the arrows; Pockets & Pages 4x6 Essentials for the tab; the new Pockets & Pages March Script die; and, the Chunky Alpha dies.  In addition, I continued with several of the Simple Stories products ~ Simple Stories Daily Grind 6x6 paper pad; the SN@P Typeset Stickers & the SN@P page protectors.  I also added some texture to my pages with some of the embossing folders in my stash.

Next up, I have my April pages.  This is one of my favorite photos of my daughter on this trip.  She loves to have her picture taken & will pose whenever asked!

I have many new Pockets & Pages dies highlighted on this page: Circle Words; April Script; Chunky Alpha; and Chunky #s.  In addition, I used a few previously released dies: the tab from the Pockets & Pages 4x6 Essentials and the Small Scallop Border die.

Next up, I added some paper elements from the Simple Stories Daily Grind paper pack and used dies from the new Pockets & Pages 2x2 Essentials dies, the 'smile' frame from the new Pockets & Pages Fab Frames and more letters with the Chunky Alpha.  Then I added a quick border with the Small Scallop Border.

And on my last page for today, I used the Simple Stories 6x8 SN@P Page Protectors along with the Chunky Alpha cut two ways - once as letters (YUM) and then as a cut-out.  I lined up the letters LUNCH on a piece of brown cardstock and fed it through my machine then added the whole thing to my pocket ~ Too FUN!  The last die I used was the tab with the restaurant name from the Pockets & Pages 6x4 Essentials die set.   The letters and numbers are again from the SN@P Typeset Stickers.

I had a blast creating these pages for my new album!  I can't wait to share more pages with you over the coming months!
