A Tweet Thank You

I am very excited today to share my first project with you as a member of Taylor's Key Ingredient Kit Club Design Team!!

I love this month's kit! The DP is from the Restoration Crate Paper Collection, full of rich, beautiful colors and fun and elegant embellishments. Everything in the kit goes so well together! So pretty and time saving as well!

You can find all the the details about the Kit Club Subscription HERE.

On the 15th of each month, when then Key Ingredient Kit comes out, Taylor comes up with a challenge! In keeping with the name of the Crate Paper collection, our September challenge will be Restoration ... making the old new again! I hope you will play along! Cover an old picture frame or re-purpose the Starbucks corrugated coffee sleeve! The possibilities are endless and we are looking forward to seeing your trash to treasure projects!

Here a my take on the challenge, a Tweet Little Thank You Gift!

First I made a thank you card using the Tweet Hearts stamp set. I stamped out my little scene and then punched out the circles and added brads from the Kit to the centers of the circles. I sponged distressing ink on the edges. Notice the doily? They are included in the Kit! I just love them!

I added stitching around the edges, a sentiment from the stamp set, and a bow with ribbon from the kit.
On the inside I used the "Thank You" sentiment from the Branching Out stamp set and used a piece of the doily I had left from the front of my card.

So here is the Restoration part of my project using a leftover jar and a wooden knob.

Using the Tweet Hearts stamp set, I covered the jar to coordinate with the front of the card. I painted the knob brown and used ribbon from to the kit around the jar top. I filled the jar with chocolate and my little gift is ready to go.

Be sure to stop by the other designers blogs to see what they have come up with:
