Taylored Expressions August Key Ingredients Blog Hop!!

Hello! Welcome to the first Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Blog Hop! Today, we are showcasing the August Key Ingredients kit! Each month, we show you 6 days of projects on the Key Ingredients blog to get your creative juices flowing. In case you missed any of this, please be sure to check out the Key Ingredients blog HERE.

With the fun, whimsical patterns and great embellishments (including letter stickers) in this month's kit, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a scrapbook layout. Sabrina just started 3rd grade this week, so I made a first day of school layout (layout is 8.5" x 11"). I added a couple of felt clouds (die cut with the Clouds Duo Die) and popped them with foam tape.

For the title, I first die cut a label using the Take Note 3 Die. Next, I added my title using a combination of letter stickers and my own handwriting). Here's a detail shot:

I also stitched on a sticker ("you're the best") onto my photos, tied ribbon and added a few rhinestones (all included in the kit). The Dr. Seuss quote is from The Places You'll Go (which is currently on sale!).

Please be sure to check out the other Key Ingredients designers for some wonderful inspiration! Here's the complete hop list:
