Happiness is Homemade - May 2017



Well he we are on the last day of May, and that means it's time for this month's edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions.  This month we have teammate Birgit Norton, Crafting Wile I Wait,  as our hostess. We are excited because this is Birgit's first time putting a kit together for us and what a kit she sent to us all. A beautiful array of fabulous homespun and vintage papers, stamped images and die cuts all in honor of her mom who created in Birgit's words a 'homelife life' for her and her family growing up. I had so much fun designing with these beautiful, rich colour tones.

I created five cards with Birgit's kit but I have enough left over to create at least five more.

Birgit said...

Tracey, these are all so darling! That tulip card is simply stunning and speaks volumes with its CAS style that is so you. <3 I love how you colored up the Newton image so sweetly and paired with that quilted background paper, is just perfect. I love the sugar cookies card. They go perfectly with that sentiment. How fun it's been to see my first kit being used by all you amazing and talented gals. Thank you so much for letting me join your fabulous group! <3

It's so fun seeing all of the different cards that are created. Awesome cards, Tracey. We had a similar thought on your tulips. I like how you added the pearls.

Lindsey said...

Fabulous, Tracey! I love that so many of us paired the tulips with that white embossed paper. You used the patterned paper marvelously, pairing the perfect images with the perfect papers.

Oh Tracey! You've colored that little sleepy kitty so beautifully - Birgit is bound to recall her Mom's cozy quilts immediately! Just love that embossed cover plate - guess who is saving it for a bit?
Every card is a charmer... xx

So fabulous, Tracey! Love how you so perfectly used the patterned papers. Your kitty on the quilts was so wonderfully colored. And the pearl accents with the tulips are extra pretty. So happy to see you used the cookies. I wasn't sure if I should punch out the small pieces--lol! Looking forward to using mine soon!

Miss Tracey...love your wonderful collection of homespun goodness! Love your sweet card with those yummy cookies and that fabulous sentiment. Your apron looks so amazing on that fabulous gingham background, you really rocked all the beautiful patterned paper in Birgit's kit!

Look at the pretty cards you made! You were inspired! I love that you used the cookies. I didn't use mine and now I have a good idea what to do with them! I love your colored kitty too! But the classic... elegant Tracey is the tulips on that embossed background with the sprinkle of pearls. CAS and GORGEOUS!
