Taylored Expressions September Key Ingredients Blog Hop!!

Hello! Welcome to the September Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Blog Hop! Today, we are showcasing the September Key Ingredients! Each month, the team shows 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. This month's kit features patterned paper from the October Afternoon Campfire collection, coordinating cardstock, ribbon, buttons and Buttercup Liquid Pearls.

I have two projects to show you today. The first is a 11" x 8.5" scrapbook layout. As much as I love to make cards, my true love of paper crafting roots lies within scrapbooking and preserving family memories.

The colors in the kit were perfect for a scrapbook page to show some photos from a day trip that we took to Sedona last year. I used Celebrate Life, which is full of whimsical images and sweet sentiments that I compliment the rich fall colors in the patterned paper and cardstock included in the kit. The letter stickers are left over from the May Key Ingredients. They were originally white, so I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist to match my colors. Here's a detail shot of my sentiment panel. I added some stitching and Liquid Pearls around the scalloped circle, then popped it on my layout.


My next project is a card using the same stamp set and more of the patterned paper included in the kit.


I clear embossed a couple of the leaves onto my striped patterned paper. Here's a detail shot:
