The 12 Kits of Occasions
Periwinkle Party

It'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.

I'm sad to see two friends go this time.  Michele Ferguson from I Card Everyone has taught me how one's personality can shine through in all they do.  Her love of life and amazing sense of humor is always winking at you if you look close enough. 

And Jessica Davis from The Paper Parade has taught me to embrace life.. the good and the bad - and make it an adventure.  I know she'll always be there to share kindness  and keep making this world a better place.
Our Hostess this month is Michelle Leone from Pretty Periwinkle Blog! She put together a gorgeous kit of periwinkle and coral with images from Right at Home, Concord & 9th, Flora & Fauna, and Altenew. The kit included swoon worthy gold embossed die cut sentiments, foil papers and pretty ribbons. Everything was a treat to work with. I had lots of fun making these 4 cards!

I just knew you would layer all of Michelle's beautiful papers to perfection. Your first card is amazing and I like all of the playfulness happening on the second. They're all pretty Jeanne! Happy New Year!

Jeanne, your cards are always super terrific, and I love all 4 of these. Leaving the llama and florals uncolored was genius over the pattern paper and white die cut mandala. Loving that big beautiful bloom too. I'm in awe at how you can combine patterns and textures and always make magic. All lovely! Happy New Year!

Beautiful work Jeanne, as always! That stunning polka dotted peony card is a real show stopper and there's so much to love about the thinking of you card. I love the black and white images layered on the printed papers with that funny little llama making her appearance. So fun!! I hope you have a marvelous new year!
