September 20th Key Ingredients

Another Key Ingredients kit is available at Taylored Expressions today! Half of the Baker's Dozen has some wonderful eye candy to show off the September 20th Key Ingredients! Taylor challenged us to be inspired by the name of the patterned paper. . .Kitchen Spice, and the only required element was to use distressing.

I decided to create a recipe book and jumbo paperclip magnet. For the recipe book, I used some index cards, chipboard and my Bind It All. I covered the chipboard with the papers and punched the different pieces (covers and inner pages) using my Bind It All. Remember those Orange Glittered Alpha Chipboard that the Baker's Dozen used during the last release as part of the Halloween Bundles? Well, I covered mine using Jumbo Java VersaMagic ink and clear embossing powder. It worked out really well because it gives them a distressed look since a tiny bit of the orange still peeks through.

The jumbo paperclip simply has a big round magnet attached to the back. It's perfect for holding recipes that you may have clipped out of a magazine, or even for reminders for the day (like I use it).
In case you didn't know, Taylored Expressions is now offering a monthly charge program. So instead of paying for all 3 or 6 months upfront, you will be charged on the 15th of each month of your subscription. The 6 month subscription breaks down to just $14.95 a month plus shipping! That is a fantastic value for all you get in the package! I have to say, if I'm at a loss as to how to start a card when it comes to colors, I always reach for my Key Ingredients kits because all of the coordinating products are right there. . .no thinking involved! I know if you try them, you'll LOVE them! :)
Be sure to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you today!
