June 20th Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions

Good Morning Everyone,

I have to say that I am a HUGE fan of the papers that Taylor has over at Taylored Expressions. Every month, Taylor puts together fabulous kits (called Key Ingredients) where she combines cardstock, coordinating Designer Paper, Embellishments and Ribbon all into one set! Today half of the Baker's Design Team are featuring this month's wonderful kit: the June 20th Key Ingredients! woo-hoo! 

Taylor challenged us to give some dimension to our projects and to also not use Copics! So I had fun paper piecing and created each project with some sort of popping up on dimensionals :)

Seriously - these papers are just so much fun! I love all the different papers and I wanted to showcase some of the wonderful pieces in this beautiful set - so here is a very simple simple card with some snippets of the patterned paper:
I used the Saturday Sketch over at Paper Craft Planet for the above card and the sentiment is from the For the Love of Cupcakes set from Taylored Expressions. I love the white brad like candy dot embellishments and the the yummy Primas in this awesome kti! And the scalloped ric rac ribbon is perfect for a scalloped border :)

This card is for a very dear friend who is sweeter than cupcakes (yes! its true!!) I wanted to make a special card for her and used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch for this one using Taylor's For the Love of Cupcakes Stamp Set. I love these papers and had to paper piece them on the cupcake - and of course since I couldn't sprinkle them with real sprinkles, I had to cover them with stickles :)

And one last one using one of my favorite papers! My friend is having a going away party tomorrow and she is one of my fave people :( so sad she is leaving - I LOVE shopping with her and wanted to make something special for her going away present - so I created a little shoe that I am going to put a little gift certificate in - as soon as I can choose from which store :) I was also going to fill it with some yummy candy - but guess what? somehow - it all seems to have disappeared!!! hmmmm  ;)

I used the template from the 3D12 challenge from PaperCraft Planet for this shoe from a few weeks ago and paired it with the DownTown Diva set from Taylored Expressions - a perfect fit! 

Please make sure that you check out the wonderful creations using this same kit from the rest of the crew who are featuring it from the Baker's Dozen:

Sankari :)

Hey Sankari! You sure create beautiful things working on the floor! LOL! Well, I hope you are comfortable nonetheless. What a great idea to listen to Christmas music when making Christmas cards. I think I may just do that too. . .it sorta gets you in the mood, huh!

Wow. .your Christmas card is just awesome. Those cupcakes are yummy looking and you colored them so beautifully. Your cards are always so spectacular. Love that you followed the sketch but changed it up a bit!!

Your second cupcake card. .again, a materpiece! I love all your cards. . the colors, the layouts. . .everything. Just gorgeous!

Okay. . that shoes is so cool. Love the pretty dp that you used. What a fantastic project.
