Fresh Start to the New Year - January '17



Can you believe it is the end of January already?
Time for another new post at The 12 Kits of Occasions!

The lovely Lindsey Larsen, Occasional Crafting, is our hostess this month and she sent each of us an absolutely gorgeous kit full of love and kindness! The colours, the stamps, the die cut and the embellishments--oh my!

Moving right on to what you are here for. I made 5 cards for today using all the fun supplies in the kit...

I always enjoy seeing all the combination of different cards put together by the 12 Kits team. This months kit definitely has some amazing stuff packed into it judging by your lovely cards, Tracey! (And "yay!" for the end of January ... that much closer to Spring) ;-)

I always enjoy seeing all the cards you make in one take, Tracey ... I can just sit and admire them in one view ... though it makes it impossible to chose a favourite! They're all gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

Kathy Mc said...

Beautiful, Tracey! Hard to pick a favorite from your five cards, but I'm smitten with the "Hey, sweet thing" sentiment and bicycle. It was a blast participating with you gals this month.

Marybeth said...

Ohhh these are all so pretty , Tracey! I love how you added the bicycle on the card with the pretty blooms you colored. You made Lindsey's kit shine!

Linda said...

Lovely cards Tracey.

Maria said...

Awesome collection of cards, Tracey!! I especially LOVE the gold embossed sentiment on the first card...so sweet!!

Lisa Elton said...

Wonderful job with Lindsey's kit! All of your cards have that special Tracey touch. Love that we both put the cake on the polka dot paper and colored the cake plate gray!!

Tracey you have crafted a lovely quintet of cards from this months kit. All are fabulous.

Sharron said...

Oh, you used the bicycle! Love how you added the flowers and the sentiment is perfect! And your cake with the soft colors is so pretty. Love all these fabulous beauties! Your designs are always fantastic!!

Jeanne J. said...

You made 5 amazing cards Tracey! I Love how you put every element in exactly the right place.. like the leaves and heart on the "in a world", and the placement of the flower and leave on "I adore you".. it just draws my eye around the card - beautiful accents!

Happy Dance said...

What a great collection of cards you've made with this kit, Tracey! That green/flower card is soooo pretty! I love how it's full of pattern, but remains a CAS card. They're all pretty sweet! Those pineapples, the gold 'kind' card, and the cake...just wonderful! I'll bet this kit was a blast to work with! Bev

Kim Heggins said...

Miss Tracey...so many beautiful cards! Love that gorgeous cake card, just stunning and I love the soft sweet colors you used, so beautiful. What a great use of the bicycle, I really struggled with that, but you are so clever! Great use of the patterned paper too, you really made each piece shine!

Bobby said...

What fabulous cards, Tracey. The more I see of that cake the more I love it. And the bike is pretty cute too.

Lindsey said...

Just lovely as always!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the kit. My favorite is the last one...meaning the last photo with ALL of them in it! The pineapple card is adorable, and I love the bicycle card. You always thing of ways of combining things differently than me and leaving me wondering, why didn't I think of that? You are amazing!

Karen said...

These cards are simply gorgeous! Love the gray and the turquoise with orange is stunning!

Joyce said...

It is so fun for me to see what I missed this month. Love all your beautiful creations.

The Paper Parade said...

Tracey, this kit was really great, but you made it look even better :) Look at these beautiful pieces of art! Its hard to decide on a favorite, but I think I'm partial to the cake one. So sophisticated and pretty in pink :) I love the one with the kind sentiment, simple yet stunning and really shows off that wonderful embossed sentiment. The pineapple one is so fun!
