May is quickly closing to an end and June is just about here. I'm looking forward to the warmer months spent outside - cooking on the grill, being lazy and watching the garden grow! Today I'm posting my projects for the 12 Kits of Occasions. This is a group of 12 friends / designers. Every month we take turns providing a kit full of supplies to the rest of the group. On the last day of the month we all post what we made with the kit. It's always fun to see how different our projects look, and the creative ways the supplies are used. There are always a few elements I'm not sure what to do with and look for in all the posts. This time my tricky (say that like "my pretty") was the cork. Mine kept breaking on me when I removed the adhesive. If I could do it over I would keep the adhesive backing on and adhere it "as is".
Our hostess this month is Joyce from Cards by the Sea and our theme is "In the Navy". This kit was a good reflection of Joyce's personality and style. She is a very CAS gal (you might know her from CASology), so a very stream lined clean kit this time. And Joyce is a California coast girl - so the nautical theme is something close to her heart. Here's a peek a the kit - lots of stamped and die cut images from WPlus9, and Waltzingmouse with a few wood and cork accents thrown in . I tried to keep with the elements she provided and only added a few trims (sorry! I just couldn't resist!) I made 5 cards so here goes...
Here's a list of the 12 Kits Of Occasions designers - we have a few guesties this month too!
