The 12 Kits of Occasions - May '14

Well it is the 31st and that mean time for The 12 Kits of Occasions post and can you believe that it is for the month of May already?  There is lots going on in my house this weekend.  Everyone is home and which is nice after it just being me this week.  Brooklyn is home from leadership camp, James is home for a few days and Ben came in on Friday after he finished work.  So the boys are repairing our fence tomorrow, 12 years of winters has caused the posts to heave so much it is almost falling into our neighbour's yard!

Joyce was our hostess this month and she sent each of us a fabulous nautical, masculine kit with lots of opportunities for Father's Day, birthdays, thanks you's and just because.  There were perfect papers from Fancy Pants and lots of die cuts and stamped images to play with.  Have a look at the kit...




A full list of supplies that Joyce sent to us is on The 12 Kits of Occasions blog.
Joyce has two guest designer's joining us this month--Lindsey and Sherrie. 

I had so much fun putting together cards with the kit.  Once started I couldn't stop and I ended up making 8 cards. So lets get on with why you are here...

Finally here they are all lined up on the window ledge.  The only window left in the house that doesn't have shutter's on it, only cheap blinds we put in when we moved in.  LOL

Thank you so much Joyce for the fabulous kit!

Tracey all of your cards are just great - so many different aspects that are special: the rope-y happy stamp; the windows cover die; tiny flags!!! You're introducing me to another new thing today, my friend - thanks!!

Bet your happy as can be to have everyone home at the same time. I bet just a tiny part of you is missing your alone time as well :)

Joyce said...

These are all fantastic. I cannot believe you made 8 cards--you must have stayed up all night. They are all CAS and just fantastic. You are giving me great ideas for how to use the supplies.

Cathy Weber said...

I always look forward to your cards lined up on the window sill Tracey...you really must have loved Joyce's kit...can't believe all the cards you made! I especially love the salt in the air patterned paper card...just a gorgeous card and one I wish I had made myself! Great job this month!

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...what a wonderful collection of fabulous and fun cards. I love each and everyone of them! As always, I love your clean style and that super hero washi tape is just too darn cute!

maria f. said...

Just love this nautical theme - those flags are superb. And I'm lovin' the life preserver on woodgrain (coming from a harbor town, ya know). Happy weekend.

Tenia Nelson said...

Awesome cards!!! :)

Sharron said...

Wow, what a great collection of cards! Wasn't this an amazing kit? Love your design with the life preserver on the woodgrain and your great card using the flags. The last card with the birthday die cut on the dotted background makes such a fun design--a great card to have on hand, perfect for anyone. Enjoy the rest of your weekend with the whole family!

Janet Zeppa said...

A gorgeous assortment of cards Tracey!
Enjoy having your family all together.

Deepti said...

Just like every other kit.... You nailed this kit too, superb nautical creations !

~Tammy~ said...

They turned out fantastic Tracey! What a great kit!

Anita in France said...

Oh my, Tracey, what a great line up! These are all fabulous ... I just love the modern quilt die one with the ship ... so striking! Hope your having some wonderful family time! Anita :)

Jeanne J said...

I love them all Tracey. Its so cool to see the different ways we all interpreted the kit The washi on the first is the perfect touch and it grabbed my eye immediately. The banners set on their side with the bitty twine bow.. and the stripes mixed with the chevrons so unexpected and daring - and it works!! So smart to use the striped pattern paper - letting it all show with a few embellishments, and you're going to laugh, but that sentiment die totally had me stumped. Looks wonderful - like a party with the polka dots peeking through.

Bobby said...

A truly wonderful group of cards, Tracey.

Maria said...

Wow! What a fabulous collection of awesome cards! You did wonders with the kit! Love every one of them!

Sherrie M. said...

JD/ Jill said...
