The 12 Kits of Occasions - April 2017



Welcome to The 12 Kits of Occasions! Our April 2017 kit,"Hello Friend', comes by way of our hostess-with-the-mostest, Sharron! It's full of amazing patterned papers, and a plethora of stamped/die cut images from Papertrey Ink, Mama Elephant, MFT, SSS and much more. This 'friend' themed kit has SO many fantastic ingredients, all of which can be found HERE on the 12 Kits blog!
I've only touched the surface of this fabulous kit, and have a bit more up my sleeve (especially after seeing all of the inspiration from my teammates). Lots of color, fabulous embellishments, and many outlined images. And.... love, love all of those beautiful succulents! 
Be sure to hop around to see ALL of the projects from the fabulous DT, and our guest designer, Marcia Hill!

Always delighted to see this blog hop show up in my reader, and as always, love your CAS interpretation of the kit materials. I especially love the last two. Those succulents on the green striped paper with the red mat are really striking, and the delicate wreath and flowers on the last one would work for so many occasions!

Oh Michelle, I'm in love with your sweet little birdie card! All those birds lined up and perfectly colored is so adorable. Great job coloring that darling cat too! What a great idea to cut the cactus paper out to use as a focal point. Pure genius! Wasn't this a fun kit to play with?? Hope you have a fabulous week!

Michelle I always love to see what you do with your Kits! After I saw your first card on our DT blog I was so mitten with the way you die cut it with the Wonky Stitched die and with the birds I could, imagine anything else to do with it that would do it justice. I will file it away for another day. You coloured the cat beautifully and so smart to cut the succulents from the one patterned paper to,put on another! Beautiful cards, thanks for the inspiration!

It's super inspiring!

Michele, you have such a gift with these kits! Your cards make me wish I still had all my supplies left to CASE them. I am smitten by all your potted plants cards (brilliant idea to trim out the paper) and just love how you've combined everything.
