August Key Ingredients are here!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!

I am so excited to be able to show you the August Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions. Each month, Taylor puts together a kit consisting of handpicked cardstock, coordinating DP and ribbon with accessories for embellishment. She has a subscription program of either 3 months subscription or 6 months subscription  so you don't even to think about it because these beautiful kits automatically come to your door! And now have you seen the news? Now, Taylor is offering these subscription plans on a monthly charge basis rather than paying for it all up front - which is totally budget friendly!!!!! You can read more about all the details here. There is so much paper and goodies that are packed into one kit that you can make all kinds of projects and cards and still have left over ingredients for more projects! I think that the August Key Ingredients are my most favorite one because of the colors and because of the COOLEST rub ons in the pack! As soon as I saw them - I was sooooo ooohin and aahhing!!

These rub ons make it a snap to put together a card - and Taylor has challenged us to use the August Key Ingredients to create 10 minute cards!!!! And I have to say that each of these cards can totally be replicated in 10 minutes - because of the papers and because of the rub ons! So here is the set that I created:

Card #1 - Thinking of You :

These papers are aso awesome - all I did was cut them into three strips and matte it (that took 2.5 minutes) and then add a sentiment Thinking of You from the Branching Out stamp set and rub on (2 minutes because of some sponging on the edge) and then cut it out with spellbinders - (less than a minute) and then ribbon and bling (2 minutes) and rounded the corners - and stopped voila :)  

Card #2: Thanks for your Kindness:

Here is another card with my FAVE rub on: Can you believe that this image is a rub on!?!!!! This card was so easy - add the rub on, cut the bottom DP, stamp the sentiment and a little mini rub on and cut it out with spellbinders and add ribbon and bling - its crazy - how quickly this came together!! The sentiment Thanks for Your Kindness is from the Beary Special stamp set

Here is a closer look at the rub on: isn't this just the prettiest rub on!!!?!!!

Card #3 - Hope Tree

One of my other favorite images from the rubons in the August Key Ingredients is this little tree: isn't it so cute!?! All I did was add a little bit of  Flower Soft to give it a spring blossom look. The sentiment Hope is from the Beary Special. All I did was cut three strips from the different papers in the kit. Rub the tree image on the cardstock - cut it and the sentiment Hope out with Spellbinders and add ribbon, flower soft and bling - I was so amazed at how quickly it all came together!

Here is a closer look at the Flower Soft on the tree:

Best Wishes for A Speedy Recovery!

And here is the last card in the set: This was the quickest card - one sheet of the DP the sentiment: Best wishes for a Speedy Recovery is from the Doctor's Orders Stamp set which I then cut out with spellbinders. I added some big eyelets to the corners for the ribbon and added some bling to the rub on image. I still had some time left - so I crissed crossed the ribbon in the front  and rounded out the corners - its crazy how quickly it came together!

Wow...that is an amazing rub on! I love it!!

And you did great work with the Flower Soft! I had 5 tubs of that stuff...ended up on the BST of SCS because when I tried to use it, it looked as if I had a blotchy mess of nothing!! I know it was my technique! Obviously you don't have that problem!
