The 12 Kits of Occasions - October




It's the last day of the month and that mean time for this month's edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions. Thank you and welcome to all of the newcomers on our blogFacebook and  Pinterest page!

Kara is our hostess this month sending all of us a gorgeous kit full of lovely papers and goodies with the Thanksgiving table in mind.  Although the Canadian Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago I am inspired with so many ideas for next year.  I hope you enjoy seeing what the entire team has for you this month, including Kara's giveaway. Details are on The 12 Kits of Occasions blog. So let's get on with the show...

What a beautiful place setting ensemble Tracey!!! I loved every single picture and the buffet labels looked as yummy as I bet the food will!

Renee said...

As always you just simply amaze!
I love them all...
especially the tree in the stitched circles...
swoon!
And fabulous place setting and how you used the die cut for dishes...
love it all! :)

Joyce said...

Oh, gosh. You really took this one over the edge. How do you have time for all this fabulousness? They are all wonderful--a few highlights for me--the 'grateful on the brown background with the glitter strip, the cards using the retro sketches and deconstructed sketch (need to check out that challenge--I love sketches), and most of all, your incredible Thanksgiving ensemble. Makes me (almost) wish I were hosting Thanksgiving this year.

Sharron said...

They are all gorgeous, Tracey! The dark brown cardstock really makes the stamped leaves stand out! And I love your framed tree. I totally forgot about the LI dies when I cut mine out. Adore your table elements! How perfect to use the place cards to name the dishes you're serving.

Lisa said...

Well you rocked the challenges with your kit cards!! Really love the tree in the circle card. Your place settings are pretty fabulous too!!

Kathy Mc said...

I thought Joyce was the queen of challenges, but you're giving her a run for it with this post using some of your kit. Your place settings are wonderful & love the lacy napkins. Your grateful & blessed cards are my favs!

Barb Ghig said...

Oh my, so much beautiful 'eye candy' today! Your cards are gorgeous, as always, and I love your Thanksgiving gathering ensemble! Looks like you've been a busy crafter and knocked it out of the park, Tracey!

maria f. said...

Um, can you say "busy as a bee". Lots of lovely stuff here. I just love the feel to the first card - leaves and that die cut sentiment. So rich.

Colleen said...

WOW is all I can say! Absolutely fantastic...all of it Tracey!!

cm said...

It's all been said, so I'll just add my applause and awe to the chorus. You. are. amazing.!

KayM said...

What a gorgeous line up!! These are beautiful Tracey!! I love all the papers and the colors! You did an amazing job with this kit!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey...I just love the look of all your cards/projects on your window sill, it is so nice to see them all in one spot. Each and everyone of your cards is fabulous, simply fabulous! I love them all so I do not have a favorite but after seeing what you will be serving next year I would love to join you and your family...just beautiful.

Christina said...

Tracey, WOW! First of all, your ensemble is amazing. I want to come to your house for the holidays! :) I especially love the napkin rings, they are so clever. You were so smart to use the sketch challenges for your card designs. They are all so beautifully balanced and make great use of the elements in the kit. My favorite is the "blessed" card. I love the skewed panels of patterned paper, then leaf tucked behind the sentiment, and that gorgeous woodgrain texture.

Barb said...

wow!!! i've noticed that i use the word 'perfect' almost every time i leave a comment for your Tracey ;) i hate being repetitive but it bears repeating here...PERFECT!!!

Amy Kolling said...

Oh dear....this is just gorgeousness! Lovely layering of papers and that fabulous gold leaf over the woodgrain paper!!! You are all set for Thanksgiving next year!!!
