The 12 Kits of Occasions - July '14



It is July 31st and that means it is time for The 12 Kits of Occasions post!

Cliche maybe, but we are doing Christmas in July and I was the hostess this month.  I started searching for paper last fall and I picked Webster's Pages, Allison Kreft's, It's Christmas. Absolutely LOVE these patterns.  I added some die cuts, stamped images, ribbon and embellishments to the kits, but honestly I think that the paper is going to be the star of the show as you go through all the projects that the Design Team has for you.

Also this month I am pleased to introduce our Guest Designer, Lesley Croghan!
Lesley is playing along with the team with the same kit and I know that we are going to love all of her projects.

I have lots to show you today and I think the rest of the girls do too!  So grab a cup of coffee and lets get started!

I am also linking these up to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes!

Gorgeous cards! Thanks so much for such and awesome kit this month! I really loved working with it. All the elements you included made them come together so easily! I could still make a ton more!

Tracey - thank you so much for the wonderful kit!!! I really had lots of fun and so many images that I didn't have that I need now!! I love that Joy stamp - your card is amazing with the gold sequins and subtle green tree background. So cool to see your vision of the kit (to see if I'm doing it right:)) Thanks again!

You did a marvelous job of picking the elements for this month's kit, Tracey! Love your cards and all of the ladies cards I've seen so far!

these are all so great my friend!

Sharron said...

Love all your cards--each so beautifully CAS! Thank you so much for the awesome kit. It was so easy to work with! I'm usually doing cards at the last minute but this week I had most done several days early. Then yesterday I decided to add one more using modeling paste. And there's still lots to play with!

Lindsey said...

These are fabulous! I think I like the first and the last the best. I always love multicolored sentiments...why do I rarely use them?! And those foil sequins are just awesome. I going to have to check the supply list...I think you used a die.

June Houck said...

These are all so pretty and festive!

Cathy Weber said...

Thank you for a really fun month Tracey...I spent lots of time on vacation playing with your kit. I especially loved your card with the cute gingerbread man clipped to the Wishes tag. I think that tag was my favorite thing in my kit! I agree with what Sharron said...it was a really easy kit to work with!

Tracey, I have already said this several times before, but I love your kit! You put together so many festive little goodies that made fabulous cards. I can't wait to pull all my leftovers out to case a few of yours. I love all your wonderful creations but your second to last card is my favorite. I love how you used the wishes tag! So sweet. Thank you again for a festive and fun kit.

Joyce said...

Fabulous collection of cards, Tracey. Not surprising since you put the kit together AND are so super talented. I love how you even used your patterned papers! A huge thanks once again for this fantastic kit. I had so much fun creating with it, and now am having a blast seeing what everyone else created.

Oh my, Tracey - how lucky the gals are to receive this absolutely amazing, inspiration+++ kit from you! Every card is infused with your unlimited creativity; dazzling, delightful, festive and fabulous! Love those papers (I so want to find them!) and that snowman - I 'need' that snowman (is he Hero Arts?)! Jaw-dropping, breath-taken-away AWE! Another set of cards to love, love and love!
Hugs~c
