I am over the moon with the Taylored Expressions Dies I used for my layout today!!  I chose the Pockets & Pages Circle Words thin steel dies from Taylored Expressions for my project.  I paired these fun words with the Simple Stories DIY Boutique and DIY stickers.  Take a peek...

The Circle Word Dies are perfect for the DIY Boutique collection!!  Take a look at the layout I created...

I used the solid sides of the patterned paper from DIY Boutique to cut the die words out.  I found the words much easier to read with the solid patterns.  I have to say these dies work like magic!!  The cuts were super clean and detailed.  They released easily from the dies even though they are delicate.

I hope you can see how clean the cuts are in this image!!  To finish off the words, I simple punched 2" circles from solids again and layered them.  The DIY stickers were the perfect compliment to the dies.

Here's another look...

I have always been a fan of die cuts and I love that many of the Taylored Expressions dies also come with matching stamps!  I will be checking out more of their products...these circles have me hooked!!!

Head on over to the Taylored Expressions blog and check out what their Design Team has created using their stamps & dies and our Simple Stories products! They’re also hosting giveaways as well, so what are you waiting for – head on over!
