Taylored Expressions RELEASE DAY!!

All of the new products you've seen over the last couple of days are NOW AVAILABLE in the TE Store.  I have two projects to share with you today using some of those products!

The first is a little camp book using the Happy Trails set.  Happy Trails was concepted by Jami and illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line.  It is ADORABLE and is all about camping!!  I used it in coordination with the Notepaper & Clipboard Dies to create this little camp book.  It's ready to be filled with little pictures and jotted down memories of camping. 

I die cut multiple pages using the Notepaper & Clipboard Dies.  I added pieces of patterned paper from the 9 to 5 Collection from October Afternoon to the inside.  Trees from the set were stamped onto the cover of the book and then I added a chevron stripe using the Chevron Border Dies.  I spelled out "camp" with the Tall & Skinny #s Dies.  I punched holes in the upper corner of each page and connected the book with a binder ring.  I stamped the porcupine and campfire onto scrap pieces of cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, cut them out and mounted them to the front of the book.  After diecutting the clipboard part of the die, I stamped "Happy Trails" in white craft ink onto the tab before attaching it to the book. 

My next project for today is a scrapbook page.  I used a picture from last year since I don't yet have pictures for this year.  This page uses the Moka Gwen set.  Moka Gwen was illustrated by Nancy McKinney and is all set for the coming school year! 

I used papers from the 9 to 5 Collection from October Afternoon again.  I die cut a library pocket using the Library Pocket Die and stamped the front of it with the Hexagon Big Background stamp(also designed by Nancy McKinney) before assembling it.  I stamped the Library Card A la Carte, die cut it with the Notepaper & Clipboard Dies and after stamping a sentiment on it, tucked it into the library pocket.  I used the Chevron Border Dies along the bottom of the page and the Notepaper Border Die along the top.  I die cut "2011" using the Tall & Skinny #s Dies and glued them to the page.  Gwen was colored using Copic markers, cut out and mounted to the page with foam tape. 
I hope you've enjoyed the creations you've been seeing!  You can see more by visiting the rest of the Baker's Dozen!  Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Shopping!!
