The 12 Kits of Occasions - May 2020
April Showers Bring May Flowers

Oh Happy Day! t's the last day of the month and you know what that means right? It's time for The 12 Kits of Occasions! The 12 Kits of Occasions is a group of 12 friends who all love to paper craft. Every month we take turns making a kit for the rest of the group. We all receive the same kit with the same items. On the last day of the month we reveal what we each made with the kit. It's fun to see how we used the product in different ways. Sometimes the projects are similar and sometimes they are very different.
Our hostess this month is Marcia Hill from Marcia's Stamping Pad! And here's a peek at the kit! It included LOTS of beautiful florals from Papertrey Ink, Stamping bella, Simon Says Stamp, Impression Obsession and more! I had lots of fun coloring all the florals! So pretty! I made SIX cards in a snap!  
Ready to see more floral inspired cards made with 's wonderful kit? Check out The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog where you'll see a sample from each of the designers as well as a complete list of ingredients that were supplied. You can also click on these links below to jump to other designers with projects to share today! 


Hugs and have a great day!

Simple Stories Vintage Coastal Collection

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great day! Memorial Day weekend is always the start of Summer in my mind. The days are longer and it’s time to take life a little slower. DH is working the grill and the tropical drinks are on me! 
And while lots of us will be having staycations this summer this collection can be your sweet escape to your favorite tropical hideaway and a little island living. 
This collection is beautifully color coordinated in shades of turquoise, coral and greens. The prints include map prints, bamboo and weathered wood, as well as flirty flamingos and gorgeous orchids.
There are two packs of bits and pieces with pretty orchids and hibiscus, water birds, and different palm and banana trees! 
I love the juicy pineapples and realistic looking flowers and sea shells. There are lots of sentiments perfect for summer greetings or invites.
If you look close you’ll also notice the decorative brads in this collection. The sheet has several different sizes – some with images under the glossy bubbles, others solid and shiny for a little eye candy. 
The washi set includes three different prints – one with orchids, another with a map print and a third that is a printed roll of pineapples. You’ll find a brad as well as a bit of washi on each card shown today. Can you find them?
I love the chipboard pieces to add dimension to my cards, and the sticker sheet for bitty sentiment strips. They’re fun to mix and match for one of a kind card creations! 
Wishing you sunny days and thoughts of your happy place as you explore the Vintage Coastal collection!
