The 12 Kits of Occasions - January 2021


Hello friends!! After a brief hiatus, we are back to business! Tracey McNeely is the hostess with the most-est for the 12 Kits of Occasions January 2021 ''A New Year of Birthdays' kit. The beautifully crisp, clean and colorful ensemble includes some lovely stamped images/sentiments, a-mazing die cuts and celebratory collection of pretty, pretty patterned papers!

I used Kraft card stock as my 'neutral' on all of my cards... as a balance to all of the vibrant hues in the patterned papers and the stamped images. I love that three out of four projects (with the exception of the pink b'day sentiment/sparkle-y cupcake!) are unisex, as I am always scrambling at the last minute when it come masculine birthdays. Lots of lovely papers and die cuts are left over, so you and I will surely be inspired once we see what the DT (and guests) have up their creative sleeves!!

Please be sure to enjoy all that the DT has to share with you!! AND.... as a special bonus, we have some fabulous guest designers joining us this month: Lindsey, Carol Mayne, and Joyce Mehrberg. Many thanks for joining us!

You will find the January 2021 supply list here.

A stunning array of cards, and I really love how you used kraft as your neutral and made unisex/gender neutral cards. So smart to build up your stash. I love everything you made, and am only sad that I didn't save too much from the kit to use to CASE other designers.
