Hey there, crafty friends! Can you believe it’s March already? It’s Taylor here today and that means it’s time to start sneak peeks for our new product release! Our March Release is always particularly exciting because we have an opportunity to explore themes that aren’t tied to a particular occasion and this month we’re exploring good ol’ Home Sweet Home! So stick with me to see how some of the things in my very own home inspired new card-making products!

All of the new products will be available for purchase at the TE webstore starting on Thursday, March 9th at 7am PST.

Before I get started with the sneak peeks, I want to make sure you know about our special offer for the month of March. For a limited time, you can earn DOUBLE CRAFTY POINTS when you purchase our Matchbox Die Set! I’ve fallen in love with matchbox crafts and I can’t wait to share more about this new product with you a little later this week. For now, I’ll whet your appetite with this little sneak peek from designer Jean Manis:

So now that you know about our special crafty points offer, let’s get started with today’s sneak peeks! I mentioned that some of our new products were inspired by things in my very own home so I’m going to start there. If you were to walk in our front door the first thing you’d see is this:

This probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but I’ve always loved getting our girls dressed up and having their pictures taken for each milestone. My father-in-law made my gallery wall dreams come true by building and installing these custom ledges where I can display my favorite photos and easily switch them out when we have new photos taken.

As I was looking at looking at our gallery wall recently I had a thought that it would be cool to have a ledge with a set of frames and accessories sized for cards. And so Sitting Pretty and Sitting Pretty Accessories were born!

If you’re looking for letters and numbers sized to fit inside the Sitting Pretty Frames as you see above, make sure you check your stash for the previously released Mini Caps Alpha & #s or add them to your cart when you shop the new stamps and dies this month!

Next up, we decided to put a smile on your face by turning one of the most dreaded household chores into a cute set of dies and sentiments! No, it’s not cleaning toilets… it’s LAUNDRY! I have to say I’m one lucky lady because my wonderful husband does all the laundry at our house. Even if you’re not in charge of washing the family duds (and especially if you are!) I’m sure you can relate to some of the cards you see below:
