Live Wires & Happy Camping...TE Release Day!

It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions! I have two fun projects to share with you today featuring some of TE's newest products and I can't wait to get started.

I created these projects using the new Happy Trails, Little Schoolhouse (both from the brilliant mind of Jami Sibley, our fabulous Design Team Coordinator!), and the cool Mark Your Spot Bookmark Die.

First up is a card I made to kick off the fast-approaching school year. My little guy is starting transitional kindergarten this year and his teachers at his school are terrific. 

This set, which is part of the Adorable Abodes line, is absolutely darling. 

I made a little ribbon using one of the sentiments. I love the big quote, too! (The apple is stamped from one from a cute apple tree included in the set.)

The schoolhouse is so sweet! I added the Welcome banner from the set and fussy cut it out, popping it up over the doorway, too. 

Next is a card and bookmark set I made for a friend of mine who is embarking on a fun road trip. She's a reader and I thought the bookmark would be a fun little send off for her.

I created this little scene by masking and stamping with images from Happy Trails

After coloring and sponging, I die-cut an off-set frame in some woodsy patterned paper.

Then, I added one of the cute critters and the wooden sign (stamping one of the sentiments within.) 

For the bookmark, I kept the wood paper theme and stamped a simple scene with the bear and trees -- isn't he cute? I left things flat so that she could use the bookmark to mark her place in her book.

These are so sweet! Have to send a link to the camping set ... my sister owns an RV Park in Missouri. They would be perfect for her holiday cards! ;o)
