12 Kits of Occasions - Hello Fall - 2017

It's always a pleasure to welcome Marybeth's Kit into my craft-room!  Her Hello Fall 2017 Kit is just what we'd like Autumn to be: full of cool stuff, plenty of orange in the palette, and pretty galore! 

Here is a little peek at what we had to play with:


Another fabulous collage from Lindsey, our resident photographer extraordinaire!  Hmmm... I'm seeing a few little treats in her kit that I didn't have in mine - that is always the trick while putting these kits together, my friends - but also what makes our play date more fun!

So, without further ado... here are my cards!

I actually left the sequin mix in the acetate envelope Marybeth sent them in -
undoubtedly this card will go to another card maker- a treat for them to use!

 Simple water coloring of the lovely leaves she sent - but OH do I love them in glorious white...
 
I actually found this paper panel in my snippets bin... thought it worked beautifully with Marybeth's cute pumpkin, and frame-like journaling card.
 

 So scary for me - to mix patterned papers!
 
... I got a bit braver as I went along!
Could these little buddies be any cuter?

Marybeth makes such gorgeous cards with her PTI goodies!
I was so happy to find this little Market Wagon in my kit! and the dots!

That's it for me for this month ... thank you, Marybeth, for this gorgeous Kit! 
 
Thanks for stopping in today... let's go see what my 12 Kits friends have made - it's always a feast for the eyes!

Wow! A definite feast for the eyes, Michele! You've created so many wonderful cards. I really like the one with the bead mix. Smart to leave them in the baggie so someone else can use them. You did a marvelous job mixing your patterns! That not so scary scarecrow is wonderful. Each card is delightful. Thanks so much for sharing! Hugs! :)

Good morning my friend! You're up bright and early this morning and totally got the jump on commenting today. Your cards have blown me away! I'm so in love with your shaker card and what a grand idea to leave the contents in the package for someone else to enjoy. You're always so clever and thoughtful!
Your mixing and matching of patterned papers is pure perfection. That's one that I struggle with too but you do it like a pro! I'm also loving the scalloped card with that woodsy frame and large pumpkin. Wonderful, wonderful cards from Marybeth's sweet fall kit!

FABULOUS cards Michele! I'm kinda partial to the shaker card too, but don't send it to me cuz I wouldn't be able to bring myself to tear apart the card to get to the sequins and beads!! :0) And you did a wonderful job mixing your DSP's together!! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! :0)

All wonderful, as usual, Miss Michele! Card making always looks so effortless in your clever hands. Such a little thing, but using the leaves in the sequin window stole my heart! Hugs and have a great fall weekend!

Marybeth said...

Gosh , Michele you made the kit shine! Thank you! So many absolutely darling cards, and love the way you left the sequin mix ready to be used by another crafter! Your scarecrow card is simply too cute! Nice use of patterned paper too!

Sigh...the splendor of autumn right here on your lil' ol' blog!! Each and every one is a feast for the eyes Michele. Your shaker with the intact shakes is a great idea!! And I like the sunshine you added to the cycling duo!

You did an amazing job with the patterned papers, Michele! You always have a wonderful way with colors and now you can add patterns to your talents. I love the coloring on the scarecrow and the added sun for the bicycle pair is brilliant. The bright green is the perfect background. What a great way to make your image pop! You've also given me inspiration for a shaker card!

Michele...so much fall beauty on your post. Love all your wonderful cards but your sweet scarecrow is my favorite, so happy I still have him to play around with. Your coloring of him is simply fabulous.

You sprinkled your usual magic onto Marybeth's kit, Michele ... such a delightful collection of cards! The blending and layering of patterns and colours is fantastic ... I especially love the little fox with his (french?) frog friend ... they're so cute ... and that's such a perfect background for them! Hugs, my friend, Anita :)
