The 12 Kits of Occasions - May '14

Hi everyone.  Joyce here as hostess for this month's 12 Kits of Occasions.  My theme this month is  'In the Navy'--all things nautical and masculine.  I found some fabulous nautical themed paper from Fancy Pants, and built my kit around it.  It's big on primary colors, and I thought it would work well for Father's Day and masculine cards in general.

My stamps are from a variety of companies--PTI (of course), WPlus9, Waltzingmouse, Verve, Mama Elephant and Altenew.   I also included lots of die cuts, and even cut a few things other than paper--cork and balsa wood.  As I was aiming for the testosterone set only--there is not a ribbon nor rhinestone in the kit.  I had such fun putting this kit together, and I hope that my fellow crafters had as much fun playing with it.

We are so fortunate this month to have two incredible guest designers.  In alphabetical order, they are Lindsay from Occasional Crafting and Sherrie from A Little Bit of Everything Me.

Lindsay, who said:

I can't get over how gorgeous this kit is! LOVE the colors and all the florals. My favorite things about May are the things we celebrate - my husband's birthday and mother's day (I've been blessed to have a lot of mother figures in my life).

Congratulations, Lindsay.  I am so happy to invite you to be our Guest Designer for May.  I will be contacting you to get your address so I can send you your kit.

See you all at the end of May, right here on this blog.


P.S.  We will actually have 2 Guest Designers during the month of May, as I had already invited a surprise guest.  When Christina stepped down from the group, that opened up a second spot.
