August Key Ingredients Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions

Hello and welcome to my blog for the August Key Ingredients and Stamp of the Month Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions.  I hope you have a great time on the hop with us today!!  I am excited to get to share one of the cards I created this month with these two wonderful kits.

I used the fun papers from the Happy Camper 6x6 paper pad from We R Memory Keepers that is included in the August Key Ingredients kit.  I love how retro the images are from the papers in this kit are as well as the trailer image that is stamped from the August Stamp of the Month, which is called S'more Fun.  

I stamped the camper onto some of the patterned paper from the KI and paper pieced the trailer together.  I then used the coordinating die set called Around the Campfire to perfectly cut out the trailer image and mounted it onto the oval that was cut with my Large Oval Nestabilites.  The stitching is done with my sewing machine and I finished it off with a tiny clothes pin and some hemp twine tied to it.

Did you know that the Key Ingredients kit comes with enough cardstock, paper, and ribbon to make at least 16 cards??  Just add stamps!  Each month the Stamp of the Month coordinates with the papers in the Key Ingredients kit, so they pair together perfectly.....which is why Taylor has combined them in a Deluxe Subscription that comes at a special discounted rate plus a BONUS .  Click HERE to get all the details on these kits and details on how to sign up.

Now it is time to hop on over to Carole's blog to see what project she is sharing with us today on the hop.  Here is a look at the blog hop line-up for today: (you are here)
