Our Key Ingredients kits have been hugely popular as our customers love getting coordinating patterned paper, cardstock and embellishments all in one value-packed kit handpicked by me just for you!
The next big thing at Taylored Expressions is the debut of our Key Ingredients Subscription! We will be releasing a Key Ingredients kit on the 20th of each month and we’re excited to share how you will have the opportunity to subscribe to our auto-ship program and have these kits shipped right to your doorstep each month! It is important to note that the Key Ingredients subscription does not include the KI showcased during our monthly stamp releases. The subscription kits will be released separately on the 20th of each month.
You know the excitement of opening your mailbox and finding a surprise package? Well now you can experience that excitement on a regular basis – it will be like your birthday EVERY MONTH when you subscribe on either our 3 month or 6 month plan.
Here’s just some of what you’ll LOVE about your Key Ingredients Subscription:º Tons of creativity in a box! Everything you need to make at least 16 cards (including 6×6 patterned papers, 8.5 x 11 cardstock, ribbon, and various embellishments) in a different color palette each month. The subscription kits will coordinate well with the TE stamp sets, but you can also use them with the many other stamp sets you own. Simply add the stamps, ink and adhesive to cook up a batch of coordinating cards.º Key Ingredients savings
Regular KI price = $16.95 per kit
3month Subscription price = $15.95 per kit + shipping
6 month Subscription price = $14.95 per kit + shippingº You get them FIRST! These kits will debut in the store on the 20th of each month, but they will be shipped out to our Subscribers on the 15th, so in most cases you’ll have the product in your hands before anyone else even sees it!º Monthly Challenge. Each month there will be a KI Subscriber’s Challenge included in your kit and you will have until the 25th of that month to upload your card and link it back to my blog to be entered into the monthly prize drawing. Of course playing is totally optional, but we just can’t wait to see what you come up with!º Baker’s Dozen Samples. Each month when the KI’s are debuted on the 20th, half of the Baker’s Dozen will share a creation they’ve made with elements from the KI Subscription kit so you’ll have plenty of project inspiration!º Storage. Subscriber kits will come in a plastic storage case. This $3.00 value is a FREE and exclusive benefit to Subscribers only. Non-subscribers purchasing the kits on regular orders will receive their Key Ingredients in the acetate envelopes they’ve always been packaged in. The plastic storage cases will not be available for separate purchase in the store for at least the first 6 months of our subscription program.º Store Discount. Subscribers will be given a special discount code to save 10% on any order placed between the 10th – 14th of the month to be combined with your KI Subscription auto-ship.The Key Ingredients Subscription service can be purchased at the TE store today! If you purchase our 3 or 6 month plan on or before the 25th of the month, your subscription will begin with the March Key Ingredients. Any subscriptions purchased after that date will begin with the April 20th kit. I’ll be debuting the full KI kit on my blog tomorrow…a tad early this month. Just to whet your appetite, I have a card to share with you that I made with elements from the March 20th KI Subscription kit! This KI kit goes great with our new Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates sets. I started by stamping the leafy part of the tree onto a piece of patterned paper and cutting it out. I used a Copic marker to shade the leaves and then added a little bit of Parisian Mist glitter to them. Then I stamped and cut out the trunk of the tree and covered it with Espresso Liquid Pearls. I added a few trimmings to the scene (the birds nest and eggs, the swing and bird, and the squirrel and nut). I also added some leaves from the green leaf trim included in the kit. I wanted some matching brads so I heated a silver brad with my embossing gun for about 3o seconds. Then I promptly dipped it into clear embossing powder. Because the metal is so hot, the embossing powder will melt onto the brad quickly. You need to have your glitter ready to go and then just dip the brad into the glitter and let it cool down. The embossing powder will hold the glitter in place on your brad. I have one more announcement to share today! From now until Sunday, anyone who places an order that includes a 6 month KI Subscription will receive free shipping on their entire order. Once you’ve added the subscription to your cart, just enter the promotional code KIFREESHIP to receive the free shipping. We’ve got lots new products in the store (be sure to check the Fresh Out of the Oven category!) and this is a great way to get free shipping on all of the goodies you’ve been wanting! Are you still looking for a little more information? Check out the KI Subscription items in the store for all of the teeny details.
