( because she doesn’t have enough to do) :)
Thank you!!

Hello and welcome to The 12 Kits! Marybeth here today and I am the host for the month of July. The theme is “Christmas in July”.When I saw these papers I felt they could be used for other occasions as well. I fell in love with :My Mind’s Eye: Christmas on Market Street and On Trend 2 patterned paper . I started my theme from there.  
Cant wait to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.

A Birthday to Die (CUT) For...June 2016

Hello and welcome to the June post for The 12 Kits of Occasions.  Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea here, and I am this month's hostess.  I love to make birthday cards and find that they are the cards I most often use.  I have so many wonderful birthday themed dies, so I decided that my theme would be birthday, with an emphasis on die cuts.  I found some fun birthday themed paper from Pebbles, and that is how I chose my colors.

I am excited to see what everyone created using the kit I sent out.

Here Comes the Sun - May '16

Welcome! Sharron here and I'm this month's hostess for the 12 Kits of Occasions blog hop. The theme for this month's kit was "Here Comes the Sun"! I didn't start with this theme but after planning to focus on florals only, I decided to feature products from several companies and include some tropical images. I love the watercolor look and found some pretty papers called Color Splash by Recollections. I also included images stamped on watercolor paper in the kit. A complete list of supplies can be found above. Just click on Monthly Kit Supplies 2016. 

It's amazing how many sunshine related products are currently available! Hopefully by now, things are greening up practically everywhere and those of us in the U.S. are looking forward to more time outside in the sunshine! 

We don't have a guest designer this month but I have prepared an additional kit that will be mailed out to one lucky winner. Be sure to comment below and along the way on your visits to our members' blogs by Wednesday, June 8. The randomly chosen winner will be announced here.

It's perfectly okay to sing along as you visit all the blogs to see the summery creations!!

Have a Happy Summer!!!

Crazy for Coffee - April '16

photo credit Lindsey Larsen

Hello, Tracey here as the hostess for the April The Kits of Occasions! The title for this month's kit is Crazy for Coffee. For quite a while now coffee themed projects have been trending and most if not all stamp companies have been creating unique stamps and dies that are coffee themed. I pulled together stamps, dies and patterned papers to give to the team so that they could put whatever spin on them that they wanted. I realize that not everybody is crazy for coffee, like I am, but there are opportunities if you are a coffee lover, a tea lover or maybe you are not a lover of either but enjoy the challenge of making a project using these fun elements. Likely there is someone you know that you can make coffee themed projects for!

The papers I used for the kit are Authentique, Durable collection and I added cardstock from Bazzill, Tim Holtz and Papertrey Ink. All the dies and stamps I used can be found in the Monthly Kit Supplies 2016 link at the top of the page on the 12 Kits blog. The theme being what it is I asked the 'queen' of coffee projects Amy Tsuruta to be my guest for this month.

Now all that being said, let's get on with the Blog Hop. Each one of the links will take you to the designer's personal blog where they have showcased all the projects that they have made with this month's kit. 

Make sure you comment here and along the way, I have a little surprise to send out to one lucky commenter this month, chosen randomly from one of the blogs along the hop!
