12 Kits of Occasions!

YES!!!  January has come to an end, and we rejoice, as only the 12 Kits of Occasions do - with another gorgeous Kit!
 

Lindsey Larsen of Occasional Crafting has started our 2017 off with a beauty!  the colors, the products, the sentiments - all as sweet as can be ... thanks, my friend - it was truly a pleasure to play cards with this fabulous kit!

Now, get comfy, 'kay?  I have a few cards for you!  ;]

First up ... those cute little h.e.a.r.t. letters - stamped?  I'd like to know, Lindsey!!

 
Most of the time, a card is all about the words ... these hit the mark beautifully...
 

Lots of beauties to color in this kit - I've reserved a few for another day ... but this guy?  I couldn't resist him!


These Altenew blooms are among my favorite - so happy I've made them mine, at last!  Lindsey's were stamped in the most gorgeous salmon pink!


Lindsey you know my love of all things gray ... so many shades of gray in this Kit ... I couldn't believe my luck!

 
NEVER one to ignore the negative cut ...
 

That's it ... an even half-dozen, and plenty of left-overs for another play day!

Join me at the 12 Kits of Occasion's blog to see what each and every one of the gorgeous designers have made for us ... there is sad news [we'll miss you Joyce!], and a new member to welcome to our group!  OH and you may want to leave a comment  ... there could be a giveaway for one of the March kits!

All of your cards are as lovely as can be! I totally love the first one with the "HEART" letters. I'm so glad I haven't used mine yet as I might have to CASE this card. You always design the most perfect cards Michele! I wish you could send me some of your creative juices. I loved how you used the negative cut too with that beautiful floral printed paper. Everything is fabulous. YOU are FABULOUS!

I always look forward to these posts to see how everyone has interpreted the kit. Your cards are all gorgeous; you have a terrific knack for putting the elements together in a striking way!

Michelle said...

A beautiful display FULL of all the loveliest of flowers, polka dots and the most fabulous grays! Every card is a masterpiece (although I'm partial to #1)!!

Gray perfection, gorgeous coloring, layouts and arrangements stupendous... use of kit elements, unmatched! ~sigh...

Michele, it was a blast "playing" with you gals and hope to get the opportunity again sometime. I so wanted to use the gold embossed Kind sentiment but struggled with elements to fit. You made it look so easy. Each card is a work of art with such unique layouts. I'm in love with all six cards!

Brenda said...

Wow, wow, wow! I am in love with each card you have made with this kit Michele! What a kit too!!! Love, love, love!!! Hugs, Brenda

Lindsey said...

Oh, Michele...where do I even start?! I made the mistake of pulling up this post just before my cake was about to be done...and I think it may have burned a tad because I couldn't pull myself away from the screen. How glad I am that I have these stamps and a teeny bit of leftover paper to CASE you. The fun alphabet is from WPlus9, and i adore how you cut them in blocks. Never would have thought of that. I love grey, and I love it even more because it reminds me of you. :) I thought that sentiment was so perfect with the little fox and I'm glad you did, too! You even colored him grey! And the way you turned the "in my heart" sentiment into a banner...brilliant! Oh, how I love all of these, Michele, and I love you most of all!

Marybeth said...

I so love all your cards Michele! So many CAS beauties! I love the card that says.... I think you're pretty!What a fun way you used the Heart alphabet, can't wait to use that one now! You made Lindsey proud, I just know it!

Lisa Elton said...

FAB...U...LOUS job with Lindsey's kit!! Each and every one makes me happy happy. I have some great ideas now for my leftovers, thanks!

Cat Craig said...

Michele what a scrumptious sextet of cards. I too love gray and you are a master at showing it off.

Sharron said...

Wow, so much inspiration!! I always love your slant on our kits! Your HEART design is fabulous! Luckily I still have mine. And your little gray fox--so precious--love all patterns on that one too. And I would never have thought to use the stamped paper like you did on the last one, so clever and such a perfect card!

TaeEun said...

And more dotted backgrounds here :)!!! Love the tropical colors and as always your fantastic use of grays. They are all awesome but my favorite is the last one! Love the monochromatic stamping on the bold sentiment!

Nora N. said...

Oh how LOVELY!! I love everyone of your cards-could not pick a favorite!! STUNNING design. I so wish I was part of this group!! The kits are so pretty!!

Barb Ghig said...

A stunning collection of cards, Michele! I can see that you had a great time, and how much you loved the color palette! Beautiful coloring and designs on every one of your cards...WOW! Thanks so much for the eye candy :)

Kim Heggins said...

Beautiful cards Miss Michele...just beautiful. I love that you have an amazing clean look to your cards and the way you place all your wonderful little details, you have an amazing talent!

Anita in France said...

Wow, such loveliness, Michele ... each card is so beautifully detailed and gorgeous ... your style always has me oooh-ing and ahhh-ing! Favourite in this delicious line-up (oh it was hard!) ... the last one, it's clean, crisp, wonderfully understated and completely chic ... I love it! Hugs, Anita :)

Bobby said...

What can I say? I love them all, Michele. You do have a way of putting things together in a most remarkable way.

LeAnne said...

These are just divine. The colors are so soft and pretty and yet right on trend....especially YOUR trend, Miss Gray! I could never pick a favorite, they're all amazing.

Joyce said...

Love all the beautiful creations you made with your kit. Very fun to sit on the sidelines, watch and admire.

The Paper Parade said...

Michele...wow, just wow. There is so much I like here! First of all, the way that you have the flowers stamped in the "hugs" die cut? OMG, I want to try that! Then the hugs card above that is amazing, too. I love the color scheme and the way that you have the same paper, but with that added frame it gives it so much dimension! The pretty fantastic card has the most gorgeously colored flower...seriously! The fox card is simply adorable. I love how you colored him that soft grey.

Tracey McNeely said...

Michele you really rocked Lindsey's kit! Love that you separated HEART, makes it really stand out. Your pineapple in delightful and the fox coloured perfectly! Positive and negative, never water! xoxo
