12 Kits of Occasions - August 2017

It's back-to-school time for our 12 Kits of Occasions group!  Lisa Elton is our host this month - such a fabulous kit, and wonderful, timely theme:  Teacher's Pet!

Lindsey is our photographer - thanks, Lindsey!!

I have six grand-kids going back to school this Fall!  you know what that means, right?  I'd better get these in the mail!!

Are you ready?  Let's go with the boys first:

You always do... In the very best way you can!
 

... corn on the cob!!!
 
Clean and simple designs are best for boys, right?  Now, for the girls:
 
Luck really isn't needed - you've got this!
 
Hope you have a day that is balloon-kind-of-happy!
 
[Lots of positives tucked inside this file!]
 
One thank you... you know, for the 'apple polisher!'  I won't mention names...
 

 
Lisa's Kit was so jamb-packed with goodness... I used one project for my CAS[E] this Sketch card - you'll see that at 10 a.m. today ... and ANOTHER was given to my husband on Tuesday for his birthday... might have been full of chocolate!
 
 
Of course, I had to add my own sentiments -
you'll forgive me holding a few back?
These were attached to the inside of
this 2 1/4 x 8 1/2 inch wrapper.
 
 
By now you must be tired of me ... I'll warn you that I have several posts today ... yikes!
 
I would be remiss if I didn't end by thanking Lisa for this darling kit ... and thanking you for the visit!
 
 
 Let's go see what my friends made, okay?  Meet you at the

What a wonderful array of fabulous cards, Michele! Looks like you had a marvelous time creating away. I really like them all! That last one, though...really make me smile big. Love the vintage feel of it. Thanks for sharing. Happy belated birthday to your hubby. Hope it was an awesome day for him. :) Hugs!

All so fabulous Michele just like you! I love how you added that little extra inside to all of them! Happy Birthday Tom and I know you loved the chocolate! You added all the right little extras and kept them CAS! xo

You are a true TALENT, Michele! And what a wonderful grandma! Sending all those fabulous cards to your grandkids...WOW! I also love the gift bag you created for Tom...bet he loves it, too!

Lisa Elton said...

Sure wish I had brought my kit when we visited last month so we could have created together!! I just adore everything you made Michele. I especially like all of the little 'tabs' you tucked in with the file folder panel. The ribbon as the road for the bus, too clever. Tom's darling chocolate box was I'm sure a hit with him!! The bunny with the flower balloon makes me smile. And your last card has me swooning! I love the stitching you added. Isn't that paper the BEST!! Wish I had a whole box of it!! Well shucks, I love them all to bits!!

Michele, wow! Look what you have done here! I am amazed by all the amazing cards and milk carton project you have shared! Your grandkids are going to love these cards! (And so is one lucky teacher!) I adore what ou have done with all these amazing goodies from Lisa...I sure was lucky to be asked to play along as the guest this month! Jackpot! I adore your last card, the sweet flowers and thank you banner paired with my favorite patterned paper on the earth! So much beauty in one post!

Sharron said...

What amazing creations from Lisa's kit! Every one is wonderful and I love them all. All the pull out tabs on the 'so proud of you' card are such a fun idea and so clever. And your card with the reading bunny looks fantastic with that bright green and red. Tom's gift is adorable--so sweet in more than one way! Love that idea!

Birgit said...

Oh Michele, I didn't want to see this post end! Each and every projects was as sweet as the next! I don't even know where to begin... your created personal sentiments are all so amazing and so fitting for each project. You're so clever and great with words! That file card with all the encouraging pull outs is over the top darling! The flower balloon.... YES! And the layered floral card??? YES! Yes! and YES! I'm always excited to visit your blog and see what you've been up to. This was such a treat for the eyes this morning.

Um, picking my jaw up, WOW!!! You rocked this kit, lady. From the milk carton to the felt flowers, to the red card file fill with goodies, I am in awe... where's my gold sticker... Your grandkids must be over the moon. PS, happy bd to hubby!

Lindsey said...

Michele, where do I even start?! You've blown this kit out of the water. Your added stitching to the flowers has me veerryy happy that I still have those leftover. In fact I pretty much want to copy that card. Love it. Your carton is darling...on my CASE list as well. And I LOVE that you created cards for your grandchildren! Oh, they are going to love them. The file full of positivity, the darling balloon you created, the little "road" behind the bus...you are just chock full of brilliant ideas!

Anita in France said...

If I wasn't typing, I'd be speechless, Michele! My goodness, you've worked even more than your usual magic with this kit ... your cards are all awesome! Some of my particular highlights ... your beautifully coloured, sweet POD images ... the little button flower balloon ... all those special positives tucked into the 'file' ... Tom's scrumptious milk carton (hope he had a delicious day!) ... those oh so pretty layered felt blooms ... I could go on! Thank YOU for all this gorgeous inspiration, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

Patti said...

Eeek! I love them all but I have to say the last one with felt flowers is my FAV!! Sweet designs and I agree - Lisa goes to the front of the class with this kit! : )

Bobby said...

So FAB-U-LOUS, Michele!! Lucky grandkids to receive these masterpieces. Hate to pick a fav but that all aqua one with the flower balloon stole my heart.

TaeEun said...

They are all so adorable and unique!!! I love the red "proud of you" card for the design idea! The apple card is one of favorites, too!!! The purple onion critters are so cute!!! Today is the very first day of school for my little girl and I think I'm more nervous than she maybe is!

Marybeth said...

Ok , milk carton with stripes I'm in love! So many amazing projects and so well thought out! Loving that little file full of tags that are over the moon darling! Each card is truly a work of art and your creativity is amazing me! Can you share some of that with me.
