A Grain of Sand...Taylored Expressions Release Day!

It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions! Today, I get to share a project I made featuring TE's very first Alphabet Die set, the new Tall & Skinny Alphas. I love to use alphabet die-cuts in my layouts and when I saw this font, I pretty much swooned!


For my layout, I chose some photos from a very special day that we spent at White Sands National Monument. I knew I wanted to use this great quote from the poet William Blake. I die-cut the entire title and chose to create the title in white on white to pay homage to the incredible white sand dunes that we experienced that day. I wanted the entire page to be very graphic and modern looking and I was so pleased with the results!


When we left the park, my little rugrat had an entire sand dune in his shoes. I collected some of it and applied it to the word "sand" in my title for a subtle, special memento.

Wow! What a stunning layout. I love the white on white and how clever to use the sand. TFS

What an awesome page! The white lettering on white background is so perfect with the pictures, especially the added touch of the sandy "sand". Love the layout of the pictures. His red clothes add the perfect punch!

What a great layout. Love the crispness. I'm a New Mexican and love visiting White Sands. :) It's quite surreal.
