The 12 Kits of Occasions - October '14



It is time once again for the 12 Kits of Occasions, with Halloween tomorrow we are posting today. A bit early, some of the girls will be posting on the 31st so you are getting two days of inspiration!

Jessica is our hostess this month and she sent out the most fabulous kit full of goodies for fall and Thanksgiving cards! Loaded with die cuts, patterned papers and other fabulous goodies.  I could make so many cards with it. I have three today, more tomorrow.  No excuses I totally procrastinated this month. There has been a lot going on at home and in blogland. It seems I really do believe I can either get 25+ hours out of a day or that sleep is totally not necessary!

I will have more cards to post tomorrow.

I hope that you find some inspiration here today, happy hopping!


My first card uses the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #160

My second card uses The Paper Players #219 Sketch Challenge

I am absolutely wild about the ink pad that Jessica used for the sentiment on this next card! It looks so fabulous against the purple background.

Beautiful cards Tracey! I've been looking for the bark ribbon and love it here. - so much texture and dimension. I dont know how you do it. Your cards are always so clean, but never plain. You have a great eye for the space you are working in and know exactly when enough is enough. Wonderful! Love the tag on the first, and all the extras - the sequins, and that bitty clip!

Anita in France said...

Me too, Tracey, I believe in the 25+ hours a day and no sleep rule too! Gorgeous cards ... the rich autumn colours in the 'thanks' against the DP and bold background is a real stunner! It was so good to meet, see and chat with you online last week, my friend ... it felt as though you were right there with us at the Lake House ... lovely! Anita :)

Barb Ghig said...

Really gorgeous cards, Tracey! I'm really loving the sentiment on the last one...so unique!

Joyce said...

Your cards are just gorgeous. I cannot believe that you could just whip these up, and that there will be more. Yikes. Love how you used the new book mark die, and that we both used the Paper Players sketch for completely different cards.

Virginia Lu said...

Love all of your cards from this kit! You have been on a creative overdrive, Tracey! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

Jen said...

Lovely fall inspiration! I love these warm colors!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey...I am with Joyce, I can not believe you just whipped these babies up, they are so amazing and I will be cas'ing them later this month. I love all, so full of fall.

Shelly said...

Love these, Tracey! So pretty!

Lisa said...

Tracey these are all just lovely. So very warm and soothing, love them!

Sharron said...

Gorgeous cards, Tracey! I can't believe you did them all at the last minute. You are amazing! Love how you used the bark ribbon (something I totally forgot about)--it looks fantastic!

laurie said...

All your cards are terrific!

I really like the pumpkin card, those sequins add just the right touch to finish the card. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

cm said...

A collection of gorgeous cards, Tracey, each one infused with your abundant creativity. I can see why you're crushing over the ink pad in the third one...so pretty! And the leaves in the first...and the sweet pumpkin in the second! So many details to adore...

Alanna said...

What fun cards. I love each of them.

The Paper Parade said...

Oh my Tracey...I love all three!!! The first one is absolutely stunning, I just love that sketch and the way you used the paper and colors... the thankful stands out so beautifully on it! The placement of the sequins on the second really make a statement for the pumpkin, and the clip on the side of the last one was a great finishing touch!

Cindy Hall said...

Wow! These are all such beautiful cards! Your attention to details is fabulous. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
