From the second I saw the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers at CHA I was in love! I knew I had to use it for one of our Key Ingredients subscriptions and I’ve been waiting patiently for October 20th to arrive! If you’re one of our Key Ingredients subscribers then you’ve probably already received your kit…just one of the benefits of becoming a subscriber! I issued a challenge to the Baker’s Dozen girls and today we’re sharing our creations using the October 20th Key Ingredients kit, available at the TE Store today! Once you receive your Key Ingredients kit, we’d love to have you play right along with us so here’s the challenge:

Focus: Use the elements of the October 20th Key Ingredients kit to make a card, 3D project, or scrapbook layout.

Required Element: Dimension (anything that adds a little pop to your creation…foam tape, pearls, rhinestones, etc.)

If you choose to take our challenge, just link your creation with Mr. Linky below and you’ll be entered into a random drawing to receive our monthly prize! You know what? I can’t even remember the last time I scrapbooked! Amy, my friend who visited over the weekend, created 5 layouts while she was here and I found myself in the mood to scrapbook! I have lots of pictures of our nephews including this sweet photo of the newest addition. This month’s kit includes coordinating cardstock, patterned paper, and ribbon along with a package of Maya Road chipboard birds and a mini spritzer of Avocado Metallic Maya Mist. You can see the chipboard bird covered with the Avocado mist in the bottom corner of my layout. I also added some Kaisercraft Pearl Pearls and American Crafts Thickers for my ‘sweet’ title. I wanted to show off the fun chipboard bird pieces again so I decided to mist another bird. The birds and wings are separate so this time I spritzed the bird with Avocado Metallic Mist and the wing with Lime Metallic Mist. I added an old Stampin’ Up rub-on and sentiment, colored the flowers with Copic marker, and added a few pearls and a satin bow. And last, but not least, I thought the Earth Love collection would be perfect with our Beary Special stamp set. So I grabbed my October Copic Kit plus the E74 Cocoa Brown marker to color the teddy bear image. The image was cut out with Spellbinders Labels 1 die and then I hand-cut the 1/8″ brown layer behind. I added some more buttercup satin ribbon and a string of pearls as an accent.
And here’s a picture of all of the contents included in the October 20th Key Ingredients! We’re proud to offer the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love collection of patterned paper along with coordinating cardstock, ribbon, chipboard birds/cages, and Avocado Metallic Maya Mist spritzer!
