Fun in the Sun...TE July Sneak Peek!


Yep, that's right...it's still June, but Taylored Expressions is so excited to show off their July Release that we're doing things a little differently by sneaking ALL of the new sets today! PLUS, keep reading for info on how you can win a fab prize...


I am originally from southern (and sunny!) California and now that I live in San Francisco, I get a lot more fog than sun. I was excited to get to play with the new Beach a la Carte stamp (illustrated by Ms. Taylor herself!) featured on today's project -- a card to remind me of sandy beaches and sunshiny days.


I used the Wave Border die on some cool patterned paper and created a little beachy scene. I colored in the word "BEACH" with Copics and added a bit of glitter and dotted "sand" accents.
