On Display: Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Hi there, crafty friends! I can’t believe it’s already November. Where did this year go? Since it is November, that means some really fun new products from Taylored Expressions and I got to play along today! I am showing off one of the awesome new dies that are releasing today. It’s called the Display Easel and I have been pining for something like this for a while.

The Display Easel is super easy to assemble. I have seen it put together several ways -- depending on how large of a piece you want to display, you can widen the top based on where you adhere it together. I have smaller, lighter things to display, so this worked for me.  I cut the Display Easel from Sugar Cube Cardstock and then a second time with the new Playful Patterns - Bold 6x6 Paper Pad and covered the front and the lip -- I love that I can decorate it however I want!

The Display Easel is a great way to show off calendars like this one that I made using the 2018 3x4 Calendar. It's the perfect size! 

I decorated the calendar with a super cute snowman from the recently-released Quick Critters Stamp & Die Combo, coloring with Copics and adding a bit of pink behind the cut-out heart.

I placed the snowman on a bit of hand-trimmed Sugar Cube Cardstock covered in Snow-Tex for some fun 'snowy' texture.

Next up, I created a photo display for the easel.

I take lots of photos of my husband and my kiddo, but I'm not very good about printing them out and putting them on display. I think that will change now because this was so much fun to do and so easy.
I simply printed one of my favorite pics and adhered it to a bit of trimmed cardstock. 

I framed the photo with the brand new Inside Scallop Rectangle Stacklets dies and the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets. I just adore the little detail! 

So now I can easily display a calendar (or maybe even give it away as a gift) or a photo on the new Display Easel and I am so excited! 
I hope you will visit the TE Blog to check out more Release Day fun!
