Taylored Expressions July Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!

Hello! I'm excited to be participating in the July Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylor invites her customers to participate in this fun hop and feature Taylored Expressions Stamps! The theme for our hop is Sending You Sunshine.

If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!

I chose to use the sweet cupcake house image from Cozy Cottages. Wouldn't you love to live in a cupcake-shaped house?! I added a bit of vellum (to tone down the print) and some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles from my stash. My sentiment is from For the Love of Cupcakes. I painted a chipboard flower white, stamped my sentiment on the pink cardstock, punched a circle and popped it over the chipboard.

All other supplies (patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon and chipboard flower) are from the Taylored Expressions July Key Ingredients kit. If you are unfamiliar with these kits, you can learn all about them on the Key Ingredients blog, HERE.

I used Sankari's fun sketch for my layout:
