Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 1: 2018 Calendar Love

Monday, October 30, 2017

Happy Monday Taylored Expressions Fans!

I hope you are ready to have a little fun with us this week as Taylored Expressions prepares you for the upcoming season of gift giving. Whether you enjoy boxed card sets, fancy envelopes sealed with love, or display calendars, there is something for everyone.

Today, I am sharing with you the new Display Easel die and 2018 Mini Tear-Off Calendar. I know crafty friends who enjoy creating calendars for loved ones for the holidays. I think this versatile is perfect for you.


The Display Easel die allows for a variety of calendar options. The ledge can be used to hold a decorated panel with the calendar underneath (as featured), a 3 x 4 calendar, or the 5 x 7 calendar version. Also you can pair the Display Easel with Taylored Expressions watercolor panels for monthly inspiration.


To create this monthly display, I die cut Toffee cardstock three times using the Display Easel die and then dry embossed one of the panels using the Woodgrain embossing folder. I inked the embossed panel with Toffee and Mocha dye ink, then adhered all three display pieces together. Adding the ledge and 2018 Mini Tear-Off Calendar completed the display.

The Display Easel Die comes with additional dies to complete a monthly display (scalloped rectangle mat, rectangle and circle dies). The Display Easel die pairs nicely with other stamps and dies from the TE Calendar Collection. For my displays, I used the Flowers for a Year stamp and coordinating die set, along with Blooms Overlay, Bloomers Greenery, Inside Scalloped Circle Stacklets and others. Below are a few more examples to inspire you...
