Fresh Start to the New Year - January '17 + a GIVEAWAY


Hello!  We are so happy to have you join us for our first kit of 2017!  As most of you know, these kits are just a fun way for 12 friends to craft "together" and inspire each other...and hopefully you, too! :)  And because we are friends, we understand that life changes.  Our dear friend, Joyce, has decided it is time to step down.  We love her!  And miss her more than you know.  We're guessing you know where this is headed...we have a new friend joining the 12 Kits team!  We are delighted to announce that Birgit Norton from Crafting While I Wait is our new 12 Kits Designer.  We already love her lots and know that you will, too!  We also have a bit more good news to announce... 

A Giveaway!!! 
The fabulous Jeanne will be our hostess in March, and she has two kits to give away.  If you'd like a chance to win her "Out of This World" themed kit (and trust me, you do!), please leave a comment below by 11:59 pm EST on February 12.

Okay, now on to our January kit!  I (Lindsey) am this month's hostess.  My kit started out with a color scheme, one that I love and makes me happy...and actually this kit is full of things that I love and make me happy. :) With the fresh start of a new year still in mind and knowing that Valentine's is around the corner, I built a kit that embodies those two things--freshness and love--at least the way I view them. ;)
Guest Designers... 


We're extremely lucky to have two guest designers joining us this month.  The first is Kathy McCloskey from Bdlakebum Stamps.  She was the winner of my kit, and she is absolutely wonderful!  I'm thrilled to have her join us.  Just look at her fabulous card!

Our second guest, is my friend Leigh Penner from To the Full, whom I have followed and admired for more years than I've even had a blog.  She inspires me both by her creations and especially by the person she is.  Here is Leigh's beautiful card...

December '16


Hi everyone, Jessica from The Paper Parade here! Here's wishing you a Merry belated Christmas and a Happy New Year! I am so lucky to need lots of thank you notes all year (I send those more than any other type of card) and especially around the holidays. Knowing that my kit was in December and would post after Christmas, I decided that I didn't want it to be a Christmas kit, but a Christmas thank you note kit! (Or any time of year, really, since I tried to make it not too Christmasey). So I got to work with my silhouette to cut out some fancy words, and dug out many of my thank you sentiments from my stash. And of course I had to use some adorable little creatures to help adorn the cards. I hope you enjoy what I've made, I can't wait to see what the girls did with this kit!

Let's Be Thankful - October '16




Hi all!  It's Michele - one L!  Welcome to the October 12 Kits of Occasions, where I have the pleasure of being your hostess ... for that, and so many reasons, I am

thankful, grateful, and blessed!



This month I've filled my kit with pretty papers, and words of thanks - Let's be Thankful! - is my theme, and just look at the way my team-mates have shown their gratitude,

in so many ways!

We have a guest this month - isn't it something that she and I chose the same element for our cards? ... it's easy to see that we have a way of making each other smile!

Thanks, LeAnne, for joining us!
