The 12 Kits of Occasions - October '15



Time for another month of the 12 Kits of Occasions!

The theme this month is travel and it seems time is what is traveling--it's the end of October people! We are posting on the October 30th again this year because tomorrow is Halloween and whether you are busy getting your little ones out or you have trick or treaters at your door--it is a busy night!

Joyce was out hostess this month and she sent us the most fabulous kit loaded with fabulous papers, amazing die cuts and really fun and unique travel sentiments! I had so much fun with this kit, I think that I have never really created travel cards. The cards were self-assembling and I think I could still make many more with the leftovers.  I have come down to the city for an appointment and to spend a few days with my parents so my Mom joined me while I as putting my cards together and as a special treat she made a card with the kit. She loves to make cards, I have saved every card that she has ever made for me. Her blog debut card is the last card on this post. I hope you will get to see more of her cards again.

So lets get going with what you are here for, the cards...







...and as promised a card by Lynn Mehak!


Sam didn't want to miss out on the post either...


This week I had a call from Brooklyn that she forgot her Halloween costume T-shirt at home. She had too Halloween parties this week on Thursday (as a Nun) and Friday (Minnie Mouse) and for Saturday her T-shirt three years ago to wear to school. So I express posted it up to her--


Happy hopping!

These are all fabulous Tracey! I love the colors and the cute suitcases! Your little dog is adorable! :)

What a fantastic bunch of cards you created, and I love that you shared your supplies with your mom. Fantastic way to use that luggage tag and map image--need to file that one away in my brain. And, love those little tickets you fussy cut, oh, and how you showed that that San Francisco sketch does not need any color at all to look wonderful.

Lindsey said...

What a great set of cards, Tracey! Your mom's is perfect, too, with the flour-de-lis patterned paper backing the scene. Sam obviously needed to see every detail. ;)

You've nailed this kit, Tracey. What fun elements in it; love those little suitcases, and the PB city scenes. Your mom did a great job with her card! How nice to be able to craft together!! Have a great weekend. Bev

Love the trimmed "tickets" on your NY card and the sliver of stripes on the "places you'll go" card - both are CAS perfection, Tracey! You mom picked a great paper to back the other cityscape image. It has been fun to play along this month and see how everyone else used the kit.

Great set of cards, I really love those New York/Paris/San Fran outline drawings! Great costume, Brooklyn!

Fabulous, Tracey! Love how you used the luggage tag with the map. You added some wonderful elements too, like the striped stripe and the cut out tickets. Love your mom's card with that very eye-catching background. And Sam's picture is adorable!
