Taylored Expressions July 20th Key Ingredients

Now available at Taylored Expressions is the July 20th Key Ingredients Kit! Taylor issued a challenge to half of the Baker's Dozen to use the key ingredients to create a Home Decor item or something you could give as a housewarming gift. Since I've started fulfilling my husband's request of creating framed scrapbook pages to hang on the walls of the entryway in our home, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to add to our collection!

I used a picture from our family vacation last year to Cape Cod for this framed page. The Key Ingredients Kits also comes with chipboard elements and a bottle of Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls. I used the Liquid Pearls to cover the "sun" part of the chipboard. I stamped the sentiment from the Beach Bum set onto Choice Buttercream cardstock (included in the key ingredients) and punched out the sentiment and attached it to the chipboard circle that fits into the center of the "sun". As far as the photo, I used the Antique photo option on my printer to get just a hint of color so I wouldn't have to worry about the colors in the photo not matching the colors of the patterned paper and cardstock.

I'm excited to see what the other girls created for this challenge, hope you are too! :

Ana Wohlfahrt, Donna Baker, Jodi Collins, Karen Giron, Laura Fredrickson and Taylor VanBruggen
