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!

12 Kits of Occasions: September 2017

Did I love this kit? YES! I LOVE fall. I love the colors, I love the weather, I love these adorable images. And there were more, too! I'm hoarding them because they are all just too cute. This scarecrow is over the top...I may just have to get him! Marybeth did such a great job with this kit, and I can't wait to see what the other ladies created with their kits. Hop on over to the 12 Kits blog to see for yourself as well!

The 12 Kits of Occasions August 2017: Teacher's Pet

This month our kit comes from Lisa who put together an adorable back to school themed kit. I really hadn't worked with any of the supplies in the kit, so it was a fun new experience! There were several adorable critter images, but I didn't have my markers with me on vacation, so those I will save for later. Here's what I was able to create without coloring!

The 12 Kits of Occasions July 2017

Kim put together an adorable Christmas in July kit for us this month. The paper was over the top cute. I hoarded some of the designs because it was so cute :) We got a seasonal campground this year and have spent every single weekend there since Mother's Day. Let's just say I haven't had much crafting time. I put these 3 together this afternoon when we returned from the campground. I totally could have made more if I'd been home more! Thanks for an awesome kit, Kim :) It feels wonderful to have a head start to my Christmas card making! Now don't forget to go and check out the awesome cards made from the rest of the group at the 12 kits blog!

12 Kits of Occasions June 2017

Michele sent us this "its a guy thing" kit. Besides the paper I had never worked with anything in it, so that was super fun! I actually gave out this first card today as a birthday card, it totally fit the person perfectly :) I never really have enough manly cards, so this was a great kit to have, thanks Michele! Now go check out what the other talented ladies made, too!

The 12 Kits of Occasions May 2017: Happiness is Homemade

Hi everyone! This month was Birgit's first kit and wow-ee!! She sent a LOT! Seriously, I didn't even brush the surface, and these cards practically fell together. She also had a story to go along with it about her mom, so that made the kit even more special and fun to work with :) Thanks, Birgit, for such an amazing kit, I know some new stamps I need to purchase now!

The 12 Kits of Occasions April 2017

This month the fabulous Sharron sent us this "Hello Friend" kit. There were some sets in here that I've always thought I'd love to own, so it was so fun to work with! This month I only managed to get 3 cards made, but man oh man, if I had a bit more time I could have made so many more, and I will! Sharron, thank you for the awesome kit :)

The 12 Kits of Occasions: March 2017

Can I tell you how much I LOVED this kit? Everything was sooo adorable. Jeanne put together the most amazing kit. I made a LOT of cards, but there are so many supplies left I could even double this amount. I have a couple of these stamp sets that haven't seen ink yet, but now I've got the stampin' bug to use them some more. Thanks so much, Jeanne for this amazing kit! Make sure to go to the 12 kits blog so you can see all the cards the other girls made, I know I will and can't wait :)

The 12 Kits of Occasions February 2017

So I've been overly busy this month, and on top of that I have what I'm pretty sure is a sinus infection, but I could not let a month go by without making some cards for our monthly post, especially with such a great kit! All stamps and dies I don't own, so it was fun to work with. I made 3 and they are below. Please make sure to go and check out the blogs of my fellow crafters on the 12 kits of occasions team!

12 Kits of Occasions January 2017

This fun kit was from our very own Lindsey this month! She sent all things I didn't have, so it was great to work with! I loved the pineapples, especially. And the fun patterns and colors that she sent. I had SO many die cuts leftover...I really can make many more cards with this kit. Good thing, too, because this year we'll be having a leftovers month :) So expect to see more! Lindsey has all the supplies listed over on the 12 kits blog as well as some of the spotlighted cards that the other girls made. Make sure to go over there to check it out!
