April Key Ingredient's Release - Taylored Expressions


Good Morning Everyone,

Is there a paper lover that is reading this? Well, today I am psyched to show you some of the awesome new paper and other fun elements from the April Key Ingredient's Kit from Taylored Expressions. Taylor has been putting together some awesome Key Ingredients kits (seriously - she has such an amazing eye to coordinate it all!) that include designer paper, coordinating cardstock, matching ribbon and then some fun accessories like: brads, rhintestones, glitter, etc. that allow you to make 16 cards from just one packet of the Key Ingredients kit. Last month Taylor introduced her Key Ingredient's subscription program on a 3 month or 6 month basis - where you will receive a Key Ingredient's package in the mail by the 20th of each month. I totally have been loving all of the kits that Taylor puts together - its just all so well coordinated and makes putting a card together pretty simple and fast :)

Today, half of the Baker's Dozen girls on Taylor's design team will be showing you some of the ingredients in this month's April Key Ingredient's kit. I absolutely love the papers in this kit and the coordinating cardstock is perfect. Here is a fun project that I made using this kit:

Paper Plate Wreath:
I made this little wreath and card for a friend of mine for Mother's Day. This is made using a small paper plate (like a dessert plate - I used the Chinet variety for more strength). I wrapped the plate with some plain ribbon that I had lying around so that when I adhered the flowers it wouldn't be against a plain paper plate.

I drew a 5 petaled flower of three different sizes and cut them out from the various papers and then adhered it in different combinations and arranged around the plate.

This kit comes with the delicious glitter called blue rapture: it is just yummy - I used it on the buttons, the butterfly and on the flower - it give it just an extra umph of sparkle :) I also love this ribbon of pink flowers that I put the butterfly on. The Happy Mother's Day sentiment is from the Fresh Flowers stamp set and fits perfectly onto a 1 1/4" circle punch to be on the inside of a flower.

I wanted to make a coordinating card for my friend - and so I made a quick coordinating card that I wanted to tie in the flowered theme of the wreath and so I made a flower card using the new Blossom Spellbinders nestabilities set (check out all the new Spellbinders that Taylor has in her store!) I had so much fun making this card - it was super quick and fun to make and embellish with the glitter and the sweet little flower bling embellishment. I love this DP from the April Key Ingredient's set - its so much fun and colorful.
Check out the awesome projects from the rest of the ladies from the Baker's Dozen who have also made some awesomely fabulous creations using the the April Key Ingredient's kit!


And can't wait to see your creations with this with this fun kit!
Hope you are all having a fabulous start to your week!

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner :)
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)

Gorgeous projects as always! I definitely am a paper lover but I have way way too much paper! That is so beautiful and tempting :O)

The Mama Monkey said...

What a great idea Sankari! I laughed at your Chinet comment! I vividly remember commercials for their product with the chicken leg falling to the groud off the poor soul's generic plate. In your case, it would have been blingly flowers! Yours will surely stand the test of time!

LOVE the wreath. What a fabulous idea to wrap the plate with ribbon! This would even be something I could do on a much more simple scale with my girls for holiday wreaths for our front door!
