12 Kits of Occasions

 It's the last day of the month!  You know what that means right?  Well it's time for the 12 Kits of Occasions reveal!  The 12 Kits is a group of 12 friends who like to paper craft!  We each take turns creating a kit for the rest of the group - everyone gets the same materials to work with.  On the last day of the month we all show what we made with our kit.   We all see the kit through different eyes and it's fun to see how our kits are similar or sometimes very different.  Our hostess this month is Kim Heggins from Cupcakes Cards and Kim blog.    And here is the amazing kit she put together for us.... 




Lots of die cut stamped images from MFT, and colorful polka dot paper from Echo Park.   She included a sprinkle of sequins, some washi, and pretty twine.   This kit was very clean - a good reflection of Kim's style.  Honestly I think its sort of fun to think of the kits and the senders at the same time - because let's be honest here.. the kits really are a reflection of us - the images we choose, the papers, etc.  They are all things we love and want to share with each other.

I confess.. I'm addicted to die cuts so - I added more than a few. I know my projects will look different from the rest of the group, I hope you can still see Kim in these.  


Ready to see more?  You can get a list of all the 12 kits designers as well as a sneak peek of ONE project every month from them here at the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog.  We hope you will stop by and stay hi!  Maybe make some new friends and see all the great projects that were made with this kit.

Hi Jeanne! I am so happy to see that beautiful sentiment here in all its glory, in that gorgeous gold frame! I totally dropped the ball on those, but will save for later. Each card a charmer, Jeanne - but that last one, with those fabulous scalloped layers is a favorite, for sure!

Oh boy oh boy!! Your love of dies cuts shines through Jeanne, these are amazing!! The first one, in all of it's it's regal golden glory, is divine. But the last card has me smitten. Love the scalloped layers and the triple rows of twine with that sweetheart of a little mouse!!

You are so right, Jeanne, about how the kits reflect each of us. And, I can totally see JEANNE in your cards. You put your stamp and layering magic to work and I absolutely adore everything you did.

It always makes me smile to see your version of the kits. They are always absolutely gorgeous and so you! I love that you add those special additions that make your designs shine. The banner sentiment designs are both stunning and the mouse love card so precious. And then there's the fabulous bright colors. Love the orange polka dots & scallops--and the purple vest!!

Oh ,Jeanne these are all adorable! I really love that red one with the oval behind the cute mouse! The gold one is very fancy and I am thinking I lost that page of stamps because I don't remember it. You did a wonderful job on the layers of the last card....soooo you!

Just remembered it was '12 kits time, and your's was my first stop. Definitely Jeanne all the way. Layers and lovely die cuts. coloring beautifully done, and yes, I still see Kim's style. But I'm going with the group, the first card, with the gold frame is just gorgeous! Love the snowflakes on the corners. Richness wherever I look!
