Happy May 5th! It’s Cinco de Mayo, National Day of Prayer, my niece’s birthday, AND it’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions! I’m excited to play along with the TE Creative Team today in showing off all the new products available today in the TE Webstore!
If you’ve visited my blog much in the past, you know that we have a 5th wheel trailer that we LOVE! So, I was especially enamored with the idea of this adorable little trailer die – On the Road Camper, along with the coordinating petite stamp set RV We There Yet?
Friends gave us these little salt and pepper shakers that usually sit on my kitchen table. I used them for the color inspiration for my die cut trailer here. Patterned paper is Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes. Usually when I plan to use patterned paper, I start there to choose what colors to use, but in this case it was just serendipity that this new paper pad happened to have a sheet that went perfectly with the trailer I had already put together!
I mentioned that today is my niece’s birthday. She has gone on a camping trip to the Grand Canyon to celebrate, so I thought this card would be the perfect birthday card for her! And isn’t that sentiment so true?
I have to point out that I made a couple of “mistakes” when putting my little trailer together. Do they matter? Nope, I don’t think so. The only reason I point them out, is to show that despite any little
foibles, it’s all good! Can you find my two mistakes? Well the main one was that there are 4 little stripes that go on the awning and I started by adhering them at one end. I later realized that they were designed to go in the opposite spots. Oh well. The other thing I did – I noticed several other designers did as well – I put the curtains on the outside of the window frame. Oops! Haha! Live and learn!
Mistakes aside, I think this little trailer is DARNED CUTE! I’m anxious to play with it in lots of different color combos. Wouldn’t it be great on the cover of a travel journal?
