Taylored Expressions – 2018 Display Easel Calendars

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Taylored Expressions November 2017 Release Sneak Peeks. The November products being sneaked will be released Thursday, November 2 @ 7 AM PST!

Today the focus is on calendar gifts and the introduction of a new Display Easel die set.

I have created calendar displays for January, February, March, and April 2018. I have shown four different colors for the Display Easel. (In reality, you would probably only use one easel and tear off the calendar each month.) The Easel die includes a ledge die on which each month’s scenes rest.

Let’s start with a look at January!

I stamped and colored the Calendar Critters image and added him to a scene created with Build a Scene – Calendar – 5 x 7 and the Little Bits – Snowflake Confetti. The Build a Scene Christmas patterned paper was cut with the rectangle die in the Display Easel set, as was the scalloped frame. These dies make creating the scene a breeze.

From month-to-month, I changed up the colors and patterned papers to coordinate with the season. For all of the scenes, I added die-cuts for texture and visual interest. These calendar scenes came together quickly following the formula – Copic-colored critter, background patterned paper, die-cut scene pieces.

I followed the same formula for February. I used Build a Scene patterned paper, a die-cut grassy hill, and a tree cut with the Build a Scene – Trees set.

For March I used Build a Scene – Calendar – 5 x 7,  Build a Scene patterned paper,  Build a Scene – Trees set, and Build a Scene – Calendar 2.

For the dark April skies, I used patterned paper from a new set being released Thursday – Playful Patterns – Savory. I added pieces from the Build a Scene – Calendar – 5 x 7 set and the Picket Fence Border.
