In Loving Memory of Sharron Gregory


The world is certainly seeing some very difficult times these days with the COVID-19 pandemic and I hope that everyone is staying well. Here in Canada we are, like most of the world, being asked by our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to stay home to help Flatten the Curve.

We will not be posting cards for the last day of the month at the 12 Kits of Occasions for March.





It is with a very sad heart I am letting you know that we have lost a member of the design team at the 12 Kits of Occasions. Sharron Gregory, On Papillon Wings, passed away after complications with her heart in the morning, yesterday (3/30). Our hearts go out to her husband Harry and family at this devastating news, and we hope you will join us in sending prayers and heartfelt sympathies their way. 

Please check back in a couple of weeks to the 12 Kits of Occasions as we will be doing a tribute post for our dear friend Sharron.

Stay well!

Light Up the World

Crafty Friends are the Best - February '20



It's the last day of the month and that means it's time for the February edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions! Fabulous Jeanne Jachna, A Kept Life, is our  hostess this month and as usual the kit she sent to all of us to use was over the top! Gorgeous Vicki Boutin Kaleidoscope patterned paper, stamped sentiment and images, die cuts and embellishments! We have all made so many friends through this wonderful hobby and what a better way to celebrate it than to create with a kit themed after crafty friends!

I have been in a bit of a crafty slump these past couple of months but working with Jeanne's fabulous kit full of lots of new to me product was just the boost I needed. I still have ideas for at least five more cards, maybe on our next leftover month!

Here they are...
