June Subscriber Key Ingredients


Hello Sugarbunnies!!

I am back today showing off what I made using this month's Key Ingredients Kit! 

As you may know these particular monthly kits are *exclusive* to subscribers, but don't worry, if you're not already subscribed, you can still snag the fabu goodies in this month's kit, simply by singing up, and it will be shipped to you "speedy-quick" (a la Junie B. Jones)!!

So lately I have been pulling at my hair trying to come up with fun little thank you gifts for the teachers and the office staff at Nick's school, so when I got this month's kit I just KNEW that it was just what I needed for some fun cards and gifts!  

This kit is perfectly coordinated and features October Afternoon patterned paper paired with coordinating yummy buttons, flower cut-outs, ribbon, and tons of cardstock - absolutely delish!! you'll love everything in it, and besides, who doesn't need a flashy new purse for summer??

UGH, could you just spit at the sheer adorableness?? (yes, that's a word)  I totally went all Kate Spade on this one.  I had gotten the instructions to make this little purse from Becky Roberts eons ago, and I finally had the purrrfect "ingredients" to make it, just the way I wanted it!!  Look at all these patterns!! sheer heaven I tell ya!  I basically just pieced together some of the patterns in the kit and stitched them up to give it that "patchwork" look.  I made the adorable flower embellishment in the pocket using some of the different flower cut-outs, and topped it using one of the buttons in the kit.  I finished it all up by adding some distress ink, and voila! 

Oh but wait!!  That's not all! I then used a few more goodies from my Kit to make a few simple cards to package up in my bag!

Aren't they gorgeous (and easy to put together!!)  For my card on the left I used one of the verses from my new Summer Afternoon stamp set, and punched out three circles from the
patterned papers and embellished them using buttons from the kit.  For my card in the center and the one on the right, I used sentiments from my Hangin' Out at the Beach set, along with some fun ribbon and more of these adorable blooms from the kit.  Super easy, but SOOO cute!

I just love it! I'm not so sure how I'm going to part with it!! Smiley from millan.net Lucky for me, there is plenty more of everything in this awesome kit, so I can easily whip up a couple more of these sets!! 

Did you know that every month there is an inspiration gallery of projects made by the Baker's Dozen using only items in that month's kit??   You can browse June's gallery HERE.  How's that for knowing you can easily recreate any of the projects you see, and you'll have everything you need right at your fingertips! 

For me, one of the things I love most about these kits, is that I can grab my kit and get crafty anywhere without having to worry about finding matching ribbon or cute embellishments -  they're already included!! and together with Taylor's monthly challenge and gallery, even if my mojo takes a little vacation I can just take a peek at the gallery and start creating! 

This month Taylor has an awesome promotion for both new and current subscribers, that I am just SOOO excited about:

Starting today though the 19th, anyone who purchases a 6 month subscription,
renews a 6 month subscription, or extends their current subscription for
6 months will receive a FREE stamp set designed by Taylor! The stamp
set will be exclusive to subscribers and sent out
upon completion of your 6 month subscription. YAY!!  I am so excited about this, and since I already have a subscription, I will definitely be extending it to make sure I get that stamp set!!!Smiley from millan.net

(BTW, a 6-month
subscription is just $23.95 a month and shipping is included!! how cool is that??!!)

Anyhoo, now you must visit my fellow Baker's Dozen chicks to see the yummy goodness they created using this month's kit!
