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!)

The 12 Kits of Occasions April 2014

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 :)

12 Kits of Occasions February 2014

Hi everyone! This month Renee was our hostess, and oh my! This kit was so her :) I know that I tell you every month that I could have made more cards with the kit, but I am not kidding... Renee sent SOOO much! I had planned to make more, but it didn't happen, but I still got 3 :)

12 Kits of Occasions February 2014

Oh my how I loved this kit put together by Sharron! The colors were so soft and sweet, the images were even sweeter :) I actually had to order this Mama Elephant Angel set because I loved it ever so much :) I was able to get four cards made, but man on man do I have a lot more left over! I swear she gave us a whole pack of patterned paper! I've definitely got to find out where she got those adorable little elephants, too because they are too cute! Thanks for an awesome kit, Sharron :)
Now to see what the other gals created!

12 Kits of Occasions December 2013

Hi everyone! Guess what? This month was MY month to host the 12 Kits of Occasions! And I got my favorite occasion...Christmas :) This year I didn't do solely Paper Smooches like last year, but you know I couldn't go without some of the adorable characters and sentiments from my favorite company :) I also added in some Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn for a fun mix up. Sadly I just sat down to work on my cards yesterday so I didn't get as much done as I could have, but hey I've already got 5 Christmas cards done for next year! Make sure to scroll to the bottom for info on the PRIZE!! ;)
First off I couldn't resist making an "ugly" sweater, since those are so in trend. As a card this is pretty cute, though. I made it extra tacky with a huge corduroy button nose on the reindeer!
Do you like the word dies you see in this next card? Want a chance to WIN them?? Well that is this month's prize, so make sure to leave a comment ;)

Well that does it...for now! I save all my reminants from the kits and boy am I glad that I do because I was about 15 cards short this year, so I pulled out my leftovers and knocked those cards out in no time! So now I have plenty left over for next year's cards, too. Now for my supplies used:
