12 Kits of Occasions August 2013

Hi all! Our kit this month came from Amy and it was another Christmas themed kit (love those :) She sent some cool supplies for us to try out, and I didn't own any of them, so that made it a lot of fun! She sent two tiny cards, too, with tiny envelopes so that was fun to change it up (the second and third card are the small cards). Check out what I made here:

So my favorite of the bunch is the first one or the first mini card. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what everyone else created with their supplies, though! So why don't you hop along with me? There is a prize up for grabs along the way! Check out the 12 Kits blog for more details.

August 2013 PTI Blog Hop

August 2013 PTI Blog Hop

I think I may have just gotten my stamping spirit back! When we got back from camping today I went in to work on my 12 Kits cards (knocked out 5!) and then I still felt like stamping! So I decided to play along with this month's PTI blog hop. I can't even tell you the last time I played along with it, so this is pretty exciting ;)
One of my close friends just had her husband go on Hospice and it has been really tough for her, so I used this challenge to create a card for her. She loves dragonflies and butterflies so I knew I wanted to start there. I used this color combo/sketch:
I used PTI's Beautiful Butterflies and Background Basics Tin Types. The circle dies are from Nestabilities. The eyelet bling is from Joann, and the other bling is Recollections. The ink is from Stampin' Up. It was a lot of fun to play in the blog hop again. Now if I can just get my act together and actually post some of the cards I've been making you'll see that I think I'm out of my crafting funk! Thanks for stopping by :)
