Is this kit amazing?  I used my stitched mats again--a lot. I had such a tough time deciding which project I liked the most. What about you?

Oh my gosh, they're ALL cute! Of course I am partial to the Paper Players one--LOL! But the little banners with the cupcake is the SWEETEST one! Super fun cards!

Marybeth said...

Love all the cards....C...Tracey! Not sure how you found the time to get them all done. Love the cupcake card too cute. Love the layout on the last one and the way you colored it. I might go back and color mine in a bit. Beautiful cards!

I love them all! Maybe the fortune cookie card my favorite because its both cute and masculine, a hard combo to pull off. I'm off to get those fabulous stitched mats I keep seeing in your cards....

Janet Zeppa said...

Wow you have been busy!! I love them all Tracey.

Kara said...

It really is a fun kit! I love your cards this month! I love the card using the rs layout. That little row of cupcakes...yum! Thanks again for all your hard work :)!

Barb Ghig said...

So many fabulous cards, Tracey...WOW! I love the stitched tags and mats on your cards...they always finish a project off so nicely! My fave would have to be your "Celebrate" card. The yellow embossed background and color combo is perfect!

Alanna said...

These are all so fabulous Tracey. I think my favorite is probably the first one but it's a close call.

Renee said...

Cathy Weber said...

I guess I am saying similar things to everyone in the 12 kits group, but I sure do love the fortune cookie cards! Such a cute idea...love your cupcakes lined up in a row too with the stitched mat sentiment. You really came up with some great cards this month and I LOVE that you made a blog for 12 Kits. Thank you for doing that...800 inspirational cards, WOW!

Annette Allen said...

Lisa said...

What a delightful post today, super cute cards!! This looks like a fun kit, loving all of the cupcakes. They're all just super but I think the 1st one is pretty darn sweet!!

Deepti said...

Indeed Tracey, it is very difficult to pick my favorite, each and every card is a master piece :)

Jeanne J said...

I can't believe you got all this done! WOW Tracey! I love them all - the first - so clever how you used the banner without fussy cutting it, The balloon pattern paper, and that colored up row of treats is wonderful! You did a fabulous job - and really showed off your style at the same time. So clean!!

wandaguess said...

I love them all!!! SOOOO nice - what a great post! Amazing job Tracey! :-)

Michelle said...

Wow! You sure were busy! I LOVE them all, honestly couldn't pick just one!!!! Completely awesome, Tracey!

Kim Heggins said...

Fabby bundle of cards Miss Tracey...love them all! And I know I am starting to sound like Cathy, I love your chinese take out card and your choice of patterned paper, it just seems to go so well! I may just have to send you my strip of cupcakes at that in your spare time you could color mine too...they are so yummy looking and go so well with the gold sequins. I was stumped on the hot air balloon paper and after seeing your card and Joyce's I am inspired, both your cards are so fun and very festive. Tracey all of your cards are amazing, just amazing!

Kelly Griglione said...

Yep, of course, all wonderful here! OK, so favorite? Well, I have to pick the fortune cookie card. Love the background patterns, and the shading on the cookie (which I think may just be from the paper).

Christina said...

Tracey, I would never guess that you procrastinated. :) These are all fantastic! I love the simplicity of your first design with the glittered cupcake in one corner. Great use of the sketch on the second card, and those colorful ice cream cones make me happy. I'm so glad I still have my hot air balloon paper for CASEing your third card! I love the stitched mats and the wooden stars. Your cupcake coloring is amazing, and the little strip of glitter next to the sentiment is a brilliant detail. Great choice of papers behind the fortune cookie, too! Thanks for all of your hard work getting our new blog and FB page up and running this month!

Lindsey said...

There is a simple reason you had a tough time deciding on a favorite...they are amazing! Love how you used so much patterned paper, love how you used the sketch challenges, and love those stitched mats...ugh...I've been resisting those but I have a feeling I'm going to give in soon. They add such a fun touch, huh?

Darnell J Knauss said...

Sweet, sweet makes with the super fun kit, Tracey! I love how you managed to combine some of your wonderful cards with other challenges, too!!

Barb said...

Fabulous kit indeed! What fun birthday cards. My fave is the one with the 3 wood stars...it's perfect! Thay all are, but I just love how placed the stars so perfectly!

carol (krillsister) said...

Darling cards. The pattern papers in the kit are amazing. Youd did a great job with them

Joyce said...

I really think that you do your best work under pressure, because this is a fantastic grouping of cards. I love them all, and cannot even try to pick a favorite. I love how you put that small cupcake underneath your banner, and your row of colored in treats is just amazing. And, I love you you made a patterned paper background with your fortune cookie card, and I think you picked the two best patterns for that.

Sharron said...

These are all so fantastic, Tracey! You have been one busy lady with the new blog and all your posts!! Love every one of your cards. The CAS design on the first is wonderful--so sweet with the single cupcake! The colored cupcakes look awesome. And I'm so glad I still have the balloon paper. Love your design with the sentiment and the stars--must CASE that one!

Amy Kolling said...

Wow wow wow!! Tracey, these are all fantastic!! I'm sorry I've waited to see them! Great minds think alike on the banner card...hehe. I just adore the cupcakes all in a row though.......beautiful coloring paired with that paper!

The Paper Parade said...

First of all, its cracking me up that we did a very similar layout and I almost used both of those papers for my fortune cookie card! Very cute ;) I love that you added the little cupcake to the bottom of the first one, what a "sweet" touch ;)I love the balloon paper card with the little wooden star accents. You did an awesome job this month, as always. Its hard to choose!
