The 12 Kits of Occasions: July, 2016


It's time for our July 12 Kits of Occasions post.  This month, Marybeth is our hostess and her theme is 'Christmas in July'.  She sent a wonderful package full of all sorts of wonderful stamped images, die cuts and patterned papers.

I really had a lot of fun with this kit, and it was just perfect for me, as I have not made a single holiday card yet.  This kit really gave me a head start to building my stash.  Even though I do not celebrate Christmas, I really enjoy getting into the holiday spirit and making Christmas cards.

Of course, I have lots of leftovers as well. I can't wait to see what everyone else did with their supplies so I can CASE them with my leftovers.

Here is a peek at the kit Marybeth sent out.

Here are the cards I made this month.














I used so many of the elements in this kit, but still have so much left over.  Thanks so much, Marybeth, for sending such a wonderful kit.

That's it for me today.  Please visit us over at the 12 Kits of Occasions blog, where you can see a list of all the other designers and click over to their blogs. 

Thanks for Visiting

  10. Sorry I'm late - I get distracted easily! Flipping out over the fact that you cut the gold paper in stripes - how cool is that? So many different styles here.. starting with elegant to cute then back to sophisticated. Love them all!

  11. Joyce you made so many gorgeous cards! I can't believe with all you have going on that you were able to do so many. Love that very first card with the bright flowers and white scalloped die cut and the way you cut the grey/foil paper into strips, it ended up just awesome!
