The 12 Kits of Occasions - August '14


Can you believe that it is time for another 12 Kits of Occasions post?

Kara was our hostess this month and he kit was full of bright colourful papers, dies cuts and embellishments not to mention that there was a fabulous WPlus9  mini stamp set in all of our packages. There were some cool shaped dies and some awesome glossy white cardstock that I don't have anything to share with, after a few epic fails I decided to discuss techniques with the master--Kara! Kara is offering one more stamp set to one lucky winner of this months contest. The details are on the 12 Kits of Occasions blog! You will also see when you get there who our fabulous guest designer is! There was also a beautiful card in our kits, handmade by non other than Kara herself!

You have lots of looking to do so I am going to get started....

Bobby said...

Love all the bright colors. The first one with the little houses might be my favorite, but I love the number one, too.

Joyce said...

Wow Tracey--what a fantastic collection of cards. They are all so fun and colorful and make such good use of all the supplies in the kit. If I didn't know better, I would have thought that you spent all month putting this collection of cards together. Hmmm, I think my favorite might be the love birds card, although I do not see a close up of it. Is that because it is already tucked inside James' suitcase?

Kim Heggins said...

Fun...fun...fun! I love them all and I always love the way they look on your window sill, I need one of those, such a fun way to display all your sweet cards. Your final card is my favorite, I love how you paired the stripes with the bright pink patterned paper and those sweet posies, just so fun!

Renee said...

Oh, I can't pick a favorite--they are all so awesome! Love what you've done with Kara's kit. The houses look adorable and I adore the splats on the pink paper. There is something so special about the single balloon--love that one. Well, I LOVE them all!

Jeanne J said...

Sorry I'm late to the party. DH had 4 days off in a row and I was getting the stink eye! LOL!! Wonderful cards.. where to begin? I love that you used the houses (they had me stumped), and you snuck in so much color everywhere. I will pick my favorite - I bet you can guess... yep! The one with the flowers and the rainbow stripe paper - lots going on - busy patterns, but it totally works!

Jill Norwood said...

Wonderful cards my dear!! Love all the happy colors! :)
