The 12 Kits of Occasions - February Kit!

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  It's reveal day for The 12 Kits of Occasions Group.  If you're not familiar with us, we're a group of 12 friends who like to papercraft.  We each take turns making a kit for the rest of the group and on the last day of the month we share what we all made with the kit.  We all get the same things and it's fun to see how are projects turn our very similar or oh so very different.
I really love getting to know each of group members better by the kits they assemble.  We each have our own unique style, and choose different themes each moth.

Our hostess this time is Michelle Leone from Pretty Periwinkle blog!  I'm not even going to try to "classify" Michelle's style.  She's clean with layers and likes techniques. She's a  fancy stamper but she knows her way around layers and die cuts too!

Check out this beautiful kit she put together for us!  Pretty Papers, lots of die cuts and pretty flower embellishments.  I think the only thing in this kit that I already owned was the papers.  Every other thing in this kit?  Totally new for me!  I'm happy to be introduced to some new things and I think there's going to be a little shopping in my near future so I can add some of these to my stash. 

I'm always telling you to look out for the "trixies" in the pack.. things that are left over in my tray when I'm done putting together my cards for the month.  No trixies here.. interesting items you might want to look out for include the pink canvas tag in the photo, and the colorful enamel dots in the kit.

I made 7 cards.. so let's get to it!   It's a walk through the garden on a spring day this month! 

I made little bow ties for the bunnies so you could tell "him" from "her" from the little pieces that came out of the fancy frame on the above card.

 
 Here's those enamel dots I told you about!  
Want to see what the rest of the team made with this beautiful kit? Hop on over to The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog where you'll see all the designers and guests listed along with one sample of their projects made with this kit!    You'll want to leave a comment there so you can enter to win a chance to receive a kit and play along with us!


All cards Finished Size: 4.25 x 5.5"
A complete list of supplies provided is listed at The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog.

Jeanne, your cards always blow me away! I just love your style and your ability to layer patterned paper. I have lots to learn to be able to keep up with you gals so I hope you don't mind me taking notes. ;0) Your first card is so stunning and so much eye candy to take in. The canvas tag adds such great texture to your layered card. The bird on the branch is so adorable too! Bows on the bunnies??? How clever of you to see bows in the negative pieces of that lovely frame! The bunnies are too cute! People who receive your cards must treasure them. They're all so amazing!!

So much inspiration here! I think my favorite (if I had to choose just one) is your Fabulous card--the flowers, the die cut and the design are just delightful. I also love those little bunnies with their bows!

'A walk through a garden on a Spring Day...', couldn't have said it better! Gorgeous, as usual, and full of so many wonderful layers. Adore how you shaded the cake, and gave your bunnies a bow tie and bow. Always fun to see what the fabulous Jeanne does with her kit! xxx

I knew you would do amazing things with this kit and you did not disappoint! Love all the pretty layers! I always scroll through several times to take in all the wonderful details on your works of art! I especially love your birthday cake, so charming! And because I'm always drawn to anything with little critters, I absolutely adore the his & her bunnies with the giant bloom! Looks like they're sitting under a giant sunflower!
