Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Little Bits Picnic Basket and In Other Words - Travel

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to Day Two of the Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks!!! Didn't you just love all the wonderful stamp sets and dies you saw yesterday!!! We have more awesome goodies to show you today.....and remember....the August release goes live Thursday, August 7 at 7:00 AM PST!!

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

My first project features three of the new Taylored Expressions  dies....the Little Bits Picnic Basket, the Little Bits Ants, and the new Apple Stacklets. . 

The picnic basket was cut out of Choice Kraft card stock with the TE Little Bits Picnic Basket die and brown ink was sponged around the edges. A piece of gingham dp was added to look like a napkin and the apples were cut with the smallest Apple Stacklets die. The black ants were created with the Little Bits Ant die and the Taylored Expressions previously released Grass Border was used for the grass. The clouds were created with the previously released TE Cloud Duo dies and the sun was punched with a circle punch.  The sentiment is from the new Taylored Expressions Talk Nerdy To Me stamp set and the twine and sewing are the finishing touchs. 

My second project is a travel gift set for a friend who will be traveling to Paris this month. Stamps from the new Taylored Expressions In Other Words - Travel stamp set were used along with stamps from the new TE Every Wich Way stamp set and the new TE Mini Caps Alpha Dies.

The suitcase image from the In Other words - Travel set was stamped on the Paper Journal dp which was also used for the background. The image was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. The background map paper from Smarty Pants 6x6 paper pad was added and sewing was done along the side. The arrow image from the new TE Every Which Way set was stamped on the tag and colored with Copics. The Mini Caps Alpha Dies were used for the month and year and ...

the wooden pieces, corrugated cardboard, hemp cording, burlap ribbon, ticket, and envelope finish off the journal and the card.  

The bookmark was created with the previously released TE Banner Stacklets 2, the Every Which Way stamps, and the Mini Caps Alpha dies. Copics were used to color the arrow image and wrinkled seam binding finishes it off. I sure hope she likes her gift!!!

How about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen DT...they have created some awesome projects for you today!!!!!!
