June Key Ingredients

Hi there! In case you haven't already heard and checked it out, the June Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions has been revealed and the Design Team has been busy sharing sample projects over on the Key Ingredients blog all week - be sure to stop by and check it out (today is my day to post over there -hint, hint). So I'm sharing a little glimpse of my project as well as some exciting information about a special {AMAZING} Promotion for Key Ingredients subscribers so be sure to keep reading for all the details!!

This month's kit featured the Basic Grey Sweet Thread papers and they are so yummy and fun to play with! Several weeks ago my Mom and I enjoyed a nice Spa Day together at the Grand Wailea Resort and they had THE cutest cupcake solid bubble bath bombs in the gift shop and I just had to pick up a few - I had a project exactly like this in mind! I knew one of these adorable cupcakes would fit perfectly in the Mini Kraft Bakery Bags and it would make the perfect gift for a special friend! Of course, a gift just isn't complete without the perfect tag...

I really kept the entire project relatively simple - the whole thing came together in about 15 minutes! I just made a little "frame" for the window on the bakery bag using some circle nestabilities and that was it for the bag (I didn't want to distract from the pretty cupcake inside). As for the tag, I simply altered an old Maya Road chipboard luggage tag I've had in my stash for years with little strips of paper from the kit. The sentiment is from the Sprinkled with Love set and I also used the Small Scallop Border Die along with a couple of the flowers included in the Key Ingredients kit. I grabbed a ribbon from the kit and tied the tag to the bag and it's ready for giving! Here's a look at the project with the cupcake out of the bag (doesn't it look yummy!?)

Now, how about that Big Promotion I mentioned earlier!?

If you are not a current Key Ingredients Subscriber, now is a great time to join the monthly kit club! You will have so much fun creating with all the coordinating elements right at your fingertips! Perhaps you've been sitting on the fence thinking about it for awhile. And if all the regular subscriber benefits aren't enough, we might have just the Special Offer you need to take the plunge!

OK, that's it from me today! Don't forget to check out the Key Ingredients Gallery throughout the month for even more inspiration and ideas using this month's kit from our DT!! And do stop by the Key Ingredients Blog - there is so much information about the kit, inspiration, and fabulous other links to check out!

Also, be sure to stop by the Key Ingredients DT Blogs throughout the month to see what they've been up to - their blogs are listed in my sidebar over there on the right!
