October Key Ingredients Subscription Kit!!

It is the 15th of the month and that means it is time for the release of October's Taylored Expression Key Ingredients Subscription Kit. This months kit is full of beautiful fall papers and embellishments and instructions on how to create some of the cards you will see today!! You can find all the details about the kit HERE.

This month Taylor challenged us to make simple cards that can be easily put together. I like to make a set of coordinating cards to have one hand. They make great little gifts!

I made a set of four cards and a cute, little gift box to put them in. I used October's kit and the stamp set Gobble Gobble.

I made a simple gift box and used one of my favorite papers for the kit on the front. I stamped a sentiment and leaves and colored the leaves with copics. Then I added three buttons, tied with twine for my stash. The handle is covered with one of the ribbons in the kit. You can also cover the front of a plain gift bag for a quick card holder.

I love the papers in the kit, especially the ones with all the borders. Like in this card, I cut a portion of the paper with the border I wanted to use, tied a ribbon around the card, and added the sentiment and a button.

Taylor's kits make it so easy to put your card together! Everything is coordinated for you! And if you want you can add other items from supplies you already have at home. For example here I add a little lace and twine to tie on my button.

Isn't this the cutest sentiment! Here all the ingredients are from the kit, except I added pearls from my stash in the corners.

On this card I add a few more extras. I just wanted to show you how you can keep your card simple or fancy it up a little if you have the time with things you make already may have at home. Here you can see I used a border punch, lace and twine. The acorn border is the a strip of one of the borders on the paper included in the kit.

Thanks for stopping by! I really think you will love this month's kits. Be sure to stop by the other designers blogs to see what they have come up with:
