Four-of-a-Kind #17 (April, 2013)

Can you believe we are already half way through April?  I know I am having a hard time believing it, especially as the weather today is rainy--something that is only supposed to occur here in the winter.  The good news about mid-April is that it is time for our quarterly group post for Four-of-a-Kind--or "The Big Reveal". 

This is the first month that Marybeth from Marybeth's Time for Paper will be joining us.  I'm so excited to be playing with Marybeth--she is a fabulous addition to our group. Our hostess this month is Kim, from Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim, and she sent us this enormous and beautiful kit featuring stamps from Paper Smooches and Family Ties patterned paper from Pebbles. Here is a picture of Kim's kit.

Here are my cards.  As usual, I have plenty of leftovers, even though I made 7 cards.  

Well, that's it for me.  Thank you so much, Kim, for sending such a wonderful kit.  And, my cards were almost all pretty much self-assembling, so thanks also for sending me the magical kit.    I still have leftovers from my kit, so I am excited to see what everyone else did, so I can CASE them.  And, here is a link to my pinterest board where I pin everyone's Four-of-a-Kind creations.

The other three members of Four-of-a-Kind are:
Cathy Weber:  Empty Nest Crafter
Kim Heggins:  Cupcakes, Cards and Kim
Marybeth Lopez: Marybeth's Time for Paper

Please stop by their blogs, if you haven't been there already, and see what they have created for their April Four-of-a-Kind projects.  
Thanks for Visiting


  1. Lovely cards, Joyce! You are always so creative in your card designs-- they are so unique!

  2. These all look fabulous. What a great idea.

  3. Joyce, each and everyone of your self assembling cards is amazing!! And you made 7 cards too, wow. I love your first card with the conversation bubbles and those leaves behind the negative one, it gives the illusion that there are lots of sweet little birds chatting about there worm selection for the day. Your fussy cutting it amazing too, so perfect and precise. I love how you cut the cutting plate apart, very clever and a great way to more use from it. As always, incredible cards Joyce!

  4. What a fun kit & great set of cards - LOVE the birdhouse paper get well card and the conversation bubble card!

  5. They're all fabulous...
    love those speech bubbles on the first one...
    but that simply perfect Get Well may be my fave!!
    Kim always send the most amazing kits and I think this one takes the cake...
    I'm dying over that paper right now!! :)
    I also know how you love the "self assembling" kits...
    YAY that you got another one!! :)

  6. Joyce your cards are all just fabulous! The conversation bubbles with the inverse one is so creative. I love that green flower die cut panel and how you wrapped the twine around the butterfly frame. What a great kit!

  7. Gorgeous cards, Joyce! i especially love that first one, with the patterned paper filling the speech bubble negative - great design!

  8. Hey Joyce, I peeked earlier, and now I am back to tell you how wonderful your cards are. Your first woodgrain card is adorable, with the speech bubbles. We were on the same page cutting out the butterfly and the tail. Love the way you used the green die only on the side of the page.You are a pro at putting together patterned paper!

  9. I am always so blown away by how different our cards always are with the same ingredients. Joyce, you did such a good job with Kimm's kit. I love card with the banners, that's my favorite. I also really love the one with the birdhouse paper...that is such a striking card, a perfect get well card that would make anyone feel better!

  10. What a pretty kit!! Love the colors and the birds! Beautiful cards!

  11. Gorgeous cards. I love that green thank you card. The get well card is sure to brighten up someone's day as it is so cheery.

  12. These all look so different! You totally had me with that first one ... the negative speech bubble with the two other sentiment bubbles is so trendy and FUN!

  13. I can't believe I almost missed this. You "4 of a Kind" ladies are the best and the inspiration you provide between the four of you in this one monthly post is incredible! Kim did a fabulous job with the kit and your cards are a delight, Joyce!! Thank you for the amazing card ideas!!
