The 12 Kits of Occasions September 2014

I've been busy finishing up my kit for next month (thank goodness my parents are visiting... put my mom to work to help me finish up!) so I didn't get to put as much time into this month as I normally like to. And then my camera stopped working... tonight! Ahhhh! So these are on my cellphone, but hey they don't look that bad, actually. Anyway, here are four cards from four different kits from the year. I could have made at least four cards from each kit from the whole year, though, because there are SO many leftovers! (which is a great thing :) Make sure to stop by the 12 kits blog this month to see the work of my friends and also for the announcement of our newest member of the group!
See you next month for my kit!

The 12 Kits of Occasions August 2014

Hi everyone! Kara sent us the most awesome and colorful kit this month! She even sent a wplus9 stamp set to go along with it! It was so fun to stamp out the paint splatters...I see this set getting a lot of use in the future ;) She also sent some cool glossy paper but silly me....I couldn't figure out how to use it... I'm sure its some fancy technique, but when I stamped on it I just made a big mess, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the other ladies created with it so I can put it to some good use! So anyway, I didn't have as much time as I hoped this month, but I still have three cards to share with you :)
The first is for my niece who is celebrating the big 3 in October! I know that she'll love this colorful card:

Next month is a left overs month but then after that its my month! I have fall...I love fall. When I grew up we didn't have fall (I grew up in FL) so now, living in New England, I really cherish it! Hope you all enjoy your labor day weekend, we'll be camping in NH enjoying the great outdoors :)

The 12 Kits of Occasions July 2014

Its Christmas in July! I really need to build my Christmas stash...I think that this time last year I already had over 30 or more Christmas cards.. this year I need to get with the program! Thank goodness Tracey sent us an adorable kit to work with this month :) I just love the snowman on the second card, and that cool star confetti paper on the third. I actually had to hoard some of the paper to save for my Christmas Project Life pages because it was SOOO cute! And those gold sequins? Die cuts!! Thanks for such an awesome kit Tracey! :)

12 Kits of Occasions June 2014

What a "love"ly kit this month, Marybeth! We had some awesome images to play with and fun colors and shiny papers. I didn't get around to making quite as many as usual (although there were definitely enough supplies to do so!).

12 Kits of Occasions May 2014

Back for my monthly post! Its 12 Kits time and this month Joyce was our hostess! What a great masculine theme. I just loved working with the fun colors and the rope stamps...I need to get the set with those sentiments and the rope borders... love it! I was able to make 7 cards that will really help with my stash (I needed some birthdays and thank yous!)

Its time for our April kit and I sat down to make cards...I was loving the colors and all the different elements that I had to play with. I made what I thought was just a few cards... but then I counted them and totally shocked myself...I made TEN!!! Thanks for this simply gorgeous kit, Jeanne, as you can see I really enjoyed it ;)

The 12 Kits of Occasions March 2014

This month's kit was put together by Kelly, Gingham Girl!  The Easter and spring colors, images, and sentiments were so fun to work with. Kelly must have been die cutting for a year for our kits, though, because wow, there were a LOT of die cuts in there, and some of them were itsy bitsy! Thanks for the great kit, Kelly, it was a lot of fun to work with :)
