It’s time for another Key Ingredients Subscription release at Taylored Expressions! If you’ve purchased our subscription service, you may have already received your May kit. That’s just one of the perks of being a subscriber!

I wanted to show you a little sneak peek of one of the cards I made with the May kit. The Fresh Flowers stamp set coordinates wonderfully with the whimsically elegant patterned papers included in the kit. You know those clear gems that you put inside vases for a little extra decoration? I thought I’d try to achieve that same look with the dew drops included in this month’s kit.

If you’re not familiar with our Key Ingredients Subscription Service, you can read on for all the details. Or if you’re already familiar with the subscription service then skip to the bottom to check out the lastest Mondays in May Sale!

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
3 month Subscription price = $15.95 per kit + shipping
6 month Subscription price = $14.95 per kit + shipping

º 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 30th of May 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.

If you purchase the 3 month or 6 month subscription before May 25th you’ll receive the May KI Kit on your doorstep soon!
