Hello ~ Birgit here as your hostess this month. My theme for May is called "Happiness Is Homemade" in honor of my mom who passed two years ago this month, 2 days after Mother's Day. She made a wonderful "homemade" life for us as she loved to cook for her family and was always doing something crafty. I hope that through the contents of this kit, you get a small glimpse of some of the things my mom enjoyed. I'm happy to have two Guest Designer's this month.
Hello all, Sharron here! Welcome to the April reveal by the 12 Kits of Occasions! If you haven't visited before, we are a group of friends who have found a fun way to share our love of creating and give a little inspiration to each other. We each have one month where we prepare a kit which is mailed to all the other members. Then at the end of each month we post our creations to share. Hope you too find some inspiration as you hop along and visit each blog.
My kit this month is a tribute to all the wonderful friends I have made through my crafty adventures. One can never have too many friends, nor happy mail cards to send their way. The kit started with some wonderful papers from PTI. I love succulents! And because I am always drawn to sweet critter images, I had fun putting together some favorites for you to enjoy!
We also very lucky to have Marcia Hill at Marcia's Stampin' Pad as our guest designer this month. Welcome, Marcia! It's so great to have you join us! Just wait until you see all her fabulous designs! Be sure to visit her blog so you can leave her a little love!
Want to win a kit so you can participate in our May reveal!!

Jeanne here! I am so excited to be The 12 Kits of Occasions host this month! I put together a kit that's just Out of this World! Everything in the kit has an "outer space" theme. There's Starshine papers from American Crafts and stamped images from Altenew, My Favorite Things, Reverse Confetti and Paper Smooches. I knew I wanted to try some different techniques for backgrounds so I included some watercolor, and bristol papers too. You can find a list of all the ingredients by clicking on the "Monthly Kit 2017 Supplies" tab at the top of this page..
Whenever I receive a kit in the mail I place all the ingredients in a tray. I mix and match elements - always trying to focus on what's in the kit. When it's all over I look at what's left and call that my little "trixie". I put this kit together so there shouldn't be anything I didn't work with.. but if I have to tell you to watch for one element this time it would be the Space Needle die cut. Yes.. I know this is a Seattle landmark, but is sure looks like its from another world so I added it to the kit. I think it would look right at home in any futuristic city! Here's a peek at the kit...
I invited a special friend to play along! Richard's been my guest since my very first kit and I am so happy he keeps coming back for more. Thanks for helping me choose a theme Richard!
Hello! We are so happy to have you join us for our second 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!
Our February 2017 'Garden Party' Kit is an ode to Spring, with lots of lovely, bright pinks, aquas and greens. Because who doesn't wait just a bit impatiently for the sound of chirping birds, the budding trees and flowers and the glorious sunshine of the new season?
P.S.- Would you like to win an April 2017 Kit from our amazing designer, Sharron??
