The 12 Kits of Occasions - January '14



Happy Friday!

It's time for the January 2014 12 Kits of Occasion's post! Sharron is our hostess with the most-ess this month bringing us a kit that is all about LOVE, Valentines Day and the ones we love. Our kits were loaded with gorgeous papers, die cuts and stamped images as well as lots of embellishments to play with. So here we go...

My next card is for Seize the Sketch #12, those darling elephants are perfect for a shower or new baby card.

My last card was totally inspired by a card done by Nichol Magouirk on the Mama Elephant blog showcasing the Love From Above stamp set.

Gorgeous cards...love those sweet little elephants and the bold black/white stripes.

I really look forward to your "12 Kits" posts, Tracey. I haven't quite worked out what it is all about (I should probably pay more attention), but I really love the concept! You always come up with the most amazing cards from the kits, and these are no exception. I especially love that elephant banner. :-)

Mary Pat Siehl said...

all these cards are simply amazing!

The Paper Parade said...

Oh my Tracey! Look at all you created this month! First of all, I love that diagonal card and how it also has the indented stitching... is that a die that does that? If so I need to know where they sell it so I can get it! The angel card is very sweet :) I just love how you had the sequins coming out of the typewriter :) And the card with the bold black and white stripes is just stunning!

Sheri (a.k.a PaperCrafty) said...

WOW...Amazing batch of cards!! Love them all!!

Kristie Goulet said...

I always look forward to your cards that you create with your kit. These are all awesome.

Marisa said...

Great papers and lovely mix of creations :)

Alanna said...

So many great cards Tracey. I think the third one from the bottom is my favorite.

Jeanne J said...

Lots of cute ideas, the hearts coming out of the typewriter, those little elephants hanging like banners, and that sweet little angel on the cloud! Lots of wonderful cards Tracey!

Darnell J Knauss said...

As I'm saying to all of you this month, I've been waiting to see the February kit coz I knew you girls would just fill Blogland with lots of hearts and love and you didn't disappoint me! These are all shazambam, Tracey, and seriously, a hanging elephant banner? Who thinks of that? Only your brilliant creative brain!! Hugs, Darnell

Jill Norwood said...

Oh my goodness Tracey! These are ALL wonderful! And I love the ME card at the bottom! I almost ordered that set and dies yesterday! I am trying to be good though! It is so hard! :)

Lisa said...

Tracey these are ALL terrific!! The banner of little elephants is just too much fun and I adore the last card with the sweet cherub and layered stitched borders!

Joyce said...

These are all fantastic. I cannot believe how much you can get done when you are under pressure. I love them all, and see lots of good ideas that I did not think of, including an elephant banner.

Deepti said...

I always look forward to see ur card kit creations coz u work wonders !!

Lindsey said...

Oh, wow! I just love these. I especially love how you use patterned paper paper. I'm still learning how to use it in CAS ways.

Marybeth said...

OMGosh….. you have some wonderful and amazing cards to look at. Love the black and white striped card.On the last card is that a new cloud edge die? I love the way you used it. Love the banner card too… you know I love them all my friend.

Renee said...

They are all incredibly perfect!!
I couldn't pick a favorite if I had to. :)
All I can really say is...
"Whoo-hoo...I have leftover's!" *giggle*

Cathy Weber said...

I don't even know where to start Tracey...my favorite...the cute angel perched on the cloud with the arrow pointing down to those fluffy cloud like scallops. Cute! I also really love your version of the typewriter card...we all seemed to love that image and also your triple banner card with the XOXO sentiment. You sure did make the most of Sharron's great kit!

Sharron said...

Aw, how cute is that elephant banner! What a clever idea. Love all your fabulous cards! The neutrals with the black & white stripe and single red heart look amazing. And I love the angled design--again with neutrals and just a bit of color--so perfect. Fun idea to have sequins and hearts popping from the typewriter too. And of course I LOVE your little angel--so sweet!

ScrapaDiddle said...

Are these actually kits we can purchase and if so, from where? Love them!

Kara said...

love your cards! the elephant banner is so cute! love your diagonal card too!! awesome!

Bobby said...

That elephant card is so cute and creative. All the cards made good use of the kits. Great job!!

Judy1223 said...

Tracey! What amazing cards you have made with your kit! WOW!!! I am absolutely in love with that floral patterned paper, and your cards are all wonderful!

Lyndal said...

WOW, a SUPER gorgeous collection of cards Tracey - just FABULOUS!!!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey...so many amazing and beautiful cards! I love them all. My favorite one is with the hanging elephants...just too cute and so clever! And your sweet little angel card is precious with that arrow and I see you used those fabulous Mama Elephant dies for your clouds...so fun!

Katie Melhus said...

Tracey there is just too much goodness here to choose a favorite! So many lovely cards, thanks for all the inspiration :)

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, these are all lovely! Fabulous job with the kit, Tracey!

Jen W. said...

Oh my gosh how am I supposed to chose a favourite here? These are all so awesome! I adore the elephants on the second card. I said to Joyce that I bought that punch because of a card Melissa made last year. They're so cute! The third card is a fantastic masculine card. Your CTS card is awesome! I love the little cherub layered on the sentiment.
Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

Barb Ghig said...

OMGosh, Tracey...one card after the other of absolute beauty! My apologies for my late post, but I wasn't getting my email notices. Evidently they were going to my spam folder...yikes!

cm said...

A gallery of pure delight, amazing creativity and outstanding talent! I'm so dazzled by the way you and the others make such diverse cards using the same kit. Impressive indeed. Love them all, but the baby elephants have stolen my heart!

Christina said...

These are all so fantastic, Tracey! I love the variety of layouts you used, especially the one with the patterned paper banners and the one with the diagonal strip. Such a cute idea to put the cherub in the middle of the "o" in love, and the row of elephants on a string is lots of fun. You always do such fabulous things with the LID stitched dies, too!

Kelly S. said...

Okay, so in love with the Bold, Italic type sentiment paired with the stripes and that simple red heart...and the cupid in the middle of the LOVE! Such creative uses of the kit contents. Don't even get me started on the darling elephant banner!! EEK!
