Crazy for Coffee April 2016



Welcome to the April edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions!

The title for this month's kit is Crazy for Coffee. I am the hostess this month for the April 2016 edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions. For quite a while now coffee themed projects have been trending and most if not all stamp companies have been creating unique stamps and dies that are coffee themed. I pulled together stamps, dies and patterned papers to give to the team so that they could put whatever spin on them that they wanted. I realize that not everybody is crazy for coffee, like I am, but there are opportunities if you are a coffee lover, a tea lover or maybe you are not a lover of either but enjoy the challenge of making a project using these fun elements. Likely there is someone you know that you can make coffee themed projects for!

For a complete list of all of the supplies that I sent out to the team this month please click on the supplies 2016 tab over on The 12 Kits of Occasions blog! 

I have a special surprise to send out to one lucky commenter this month. I am randomly selecting one person from all the blogs along the hop including the 12 Kits blog to receive it.

No on to what you are here for...

This was the perfect post to read while sipping my Saturday morning (leisurely) cup of coffee. Beautiful cards, Tracey!

I am a true coffee liver and love all the project. It's 6:20 a.m. and I'm on my third cup. So many of my friends are coffee lovers too and I could see myself crain a lot of cards to send.

Birgit said...

What a yummy kit you've put together this month, Tracey! All your cards are fabulous but I adore the third one, with coffee and donuts. The background paper on that is awesome! I also like your coffee bag. So clever and what a fun way to give a coffee themed gift. Time for me to go pour myself another cup and keep touring the 12 kits blogs!

Tracey, these are delicious! Wish I could dive into the donuts. Love seeing your combos, and how you paired with the sentiments. Your last photo with the lit 'T' is adorable!

Wonderful collection of coffee themed cards, Tracey! Love the first card with the beautiful large mug and the card with the sweet bear holding the cup. And, the yummy donuts, too! Ah...love them all!:-)

Gah! Love the colors and tones in your cards, so stylish! Amazing cards! (Still having troubles commenting on my phone, don't know why that is! I see everything in Bloglovin' and sometimes I can comment and sometimes not! Today is a good day for that!)

Marybeth said...

What a fun kit, Tracey... thank you! Love all your CAS cards and the large coffee cup is too fun! I loved the theme and colors of this kit!

NanW said...

Fun collection of cards. Coffee lovers appreciate the theme!

Lindsey said...

What a line up! This was such a fantastic kit, Tracey! Thank you so much! I almost had my bear hold the giant cup...and now I wish I had! Love the placement of everything on that card, too. I adore your cool beans card. The cork was one of my favorite things in the kit. And your giant mug turned out awesome. I colored mine totally different, but couldn't figure out how to finish the card. I wish I had colored in coordinating colors and had thought to back it just like this. Just might have to CASE that one to finish my card up. : )

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey....what an amazing kit you created! I love every little piece of it and so happy that I still have left overs to play with. Your card line up is fabulous, would look great in any neighborhood coffee shop! Thank you again for the fabulous kit.

This was such a fun kit Tracey!! I've enjoyed seeing the different ways we all used your coffee themed products. The depth you achieved on your mug is incredible!! I haven't used mine yet, wanted to see what everyone else did with it!! Love each and every one of these sweet friend!

Sharron said...

Loved your kit so much, Tracey! So many wonderful die cuts to play with and the patterned paper was just perfect. The colors were awesome! And I love the little bear. Seeing him holding a huge drink is such a fun idea--never thought of that. Can't believe I never ordered any coffee themed supplies but you've inspired me to get some soon. Thanks again for a wonderful month!!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh these are all amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bobby said...

I finished the hop and must say everyone did a fabulous job with your beautiful kit, Tracey. The colors were glorious and while I'm not a coffee drinker I can still appreciate a good coffee design. Your cards are wonderful and I'm loving that little bear.

Joyce said...

What an incredible kit you put together. I loved every single bit in it, and had so much fun playing around. I feel like now, I know how I 'should' have used everything, and especially my leftovers. Love all of your projects and loved this kit, too. Thanks so much.

Jeanne J. said...

Hi Tracey! Thank you so much for this amazing kit! I really loved working with all the wonderful things you sent - and now it looks like I need to go shopping again LOL!!!

Barb Ghig said...

Really awesome kit, and I love how your CAS style shines through, every time, Tracey! I love every one of your cards, and your gift bag is fabulous ~ In fact, it's the perfect size for a medium Latte and those 2 cute little donuts on your last card...Love it!!!
