The 12 Kits of Occasions: My Little Chickadee April 2018

Birds and more birds! Wooden birds, stamped birds, bird sentiments. What a great themed kit we got this month from our hostess, Lisa. All images and supplies I'd never worked with before, which is such fun and a great challenge, too. I made 3 cards this month and am looking forward to seeing what the other ladies made so I can be inspired by some of their ideas, too! Make sure to go check them out yourself at the 12 Kits of Occasions blog.

The 12 Kits of Occasions: March 2018

Welcome to my hostess month for the 12 kits of occasions! I am so lucky to always be in need of Thank You cards, so that is what I based my kit around this month...thanks! I used a bunch of stamp sets, some that have been well loved, and others that had never seen ink. I found some fun watercolor patterned paper that helped me to come up with the color combination that I used. The stamp sets come from Concord & 9th, Mama Elephant, My Favorite Things, and Paper Smooches. I can't wait to see how the girls used these kits I put together! Here are the cards that I created:

12 Kits of Occasions February 2018

This month was SO FULL of dies and fun things to use, especially from Concord and 9th (which I love!) Thank you, Lindsey, for such a bright, colorful, and floral kit with some wonderful sentiments. I knocked out 6 cards in no time and could have made so many more!

12 Kits of Occasions January 2018: Snow Day!

This month Jeanne gave us a fun kit full of colorful patterned papers, sequins, bling, and embellishments galore as well as an assortment of cute and fancy images. It was so fun and easy to work with this kit, there was just so much! I swear I got half a pad of patterned paper alone :) I don't think I own a single thing that she sent so that made it extra fun, too. Thanks, Jeanne, for the awesome snow day kit! (and interestingly enough we have snow forecasted for today, too!).

The 12 Kits of Occasions December 2017

Wow, I can't believe this concludes another year of the 12 kits group! What a fun year it has been, and Tracey sure didn't disappoint with her gorgeous kit! I didn't have a single thing from the kit, so it was super fun to work with. And the bright and cheerful colors were just what I needed :) Thanks for a wonderful kit, Tracey!

The 12 Kits of Occasions November 2017

This month was my month! I had so much fun putting together this kit full of cute images. When I saw this adorable yeti stamp set that Mama Elephant came out with I just knew I wanted to use it, and that's when the kit started coming together. I bought several new stamp sets to use and these icy blue patterned papers  to go along with him. I just can't wait to see what the girls did with this kit! Unfortunately I suffered a loss in the family and just wasn't able to get to my own kit. The ladies in my group, however, jumped in and set the whole thing up for me. I can't tell you how thankful I am for each and every one of them, and how honored I am to be in this group of talented women! Here is the one card I was able to make this month. I will definitely be borrowing some of the ideas put forth in the other 12 kitters blogs :)

The 12 Kits of Occasions: October 2017

Happy Halloween! This month's kit is from Nancy, and man was it cute! I don't have any of these images, so it was fun to work with these adorable cats :) I moved where my lightbox is and my pictures turned out crooked (new angle) but I had already sealed these cards in envelopes to send, so oh well...we'll say it gives them more interest, haha. Make sure to check out the 12 kits blog to see what everyone else made, too, and here's wishing you a spooky and fun Halloween!
