August 20th Key Ingredients Kit

Good Morning!
Wow it's been a busy few days but today I can relax! I'm really looking forward to getting some more stamping time in :)
This week I received the August 20th Key Ingredients in the mail....such a HAPPY DAY! I love these kits! They take the guess work out of putting a card together and this month it's EXTRA easy because there are rub-ons included!!! I don't often use rub-ons but really should ;)
Yesterday, Taylor made an awesome video on the August KI kit that you can see HERE.
This month Taylor challenged us to make 10 minute cards. I don't know about you all but the easy cards seem to be the hardest to make for me. As I was working on my cards I wanted to keep adding to them but realized that would be more than 10 minutes. Those of you that know me well, know I am not much of a rule breaker...lol!
So what do you think? Aren't these fun!


Also have you heard the news about new subscription service?
Taylored Expressions is offering both of these on a monthly charge basis rather than having to pay it all up front. So now you can craft on a budget with fabulously coordinated supplies! How cool is that? Sign up for the subscription service to receive the Key Ingredients kits released the 20th of each month for just $15.95 a month plus shipping for the 3 month subscription. Or for the best value, you can purchase the 6 month subscription for just $14.95 a month plus shipping and as a BONUS Taylor will include 2 Perfect Package Card Boxes ($5.95 value) FREE if you order by August 25th! Of course all of the KI kits are also available for individual purchase ($16.95 each) while they last. Click here to read about all the benefits for Subscribers.

AWESOME cards, my friend! You have an incredible eye for matching up papers, papers, and images. I love that tree with that particular pattern. The owl card is probably my fav though...love the dark brown with the soft yellow.
