12 Kits of Occasions - a grand finale!

Yes.  It is the end of the year, and with our host Tracey's gorgeous Fashionista kit, we 12 Kits of Occasions gals are going out with a bang, and well dressed, to boot!

Without further ado... here is a peek at all things fabulous about Tracey's kit:


Thanks, Lindsey, for the photo!

I was able to make four really fun cards, with lots of pretty leftovers for other projects!

First up is my card from the 12 Kits of Occasions blog... there is a little surprise to share here! 


With a little ingenuity, and a penny-slider, you can have a quick costume change:

Tres jolie, oui?!
 
Next, a little mantra for the New Year!


Inside: 
Say aloud, and repeat each day - you can do anything!!
 
One day, I will see this one of a kind landmark!!!
 


Lastly, I leave you with a classic beauty, whose words describe my 12 Kits of Occasions family so well:

"True friends are families you can select" -
Audrey Hepburn
 


Thank you, Tracey, for this wonderful kit!  Cheers to you and all of my 12 Kits sisters!  I'm off to visit each of you now!

To all of my faithful friends who visit me here at I Card Everyone, thank you, and happy, healthy New Year!

Stunning cards, Michelle! This looks like a 'must have' kit, and your first card with it's unexpected costume change is magical, Jo x

Jeanne said...

Adore your cards, Michele. Love the costume change. So clever! That spa day looks fun. The Tower amidst the flowers is lovely and that last card. Mwah, magnifique!

Birgit said...

Oh Michele. I'm blown away by your stunning and super creative cards!!! The card with the gal with the cucumbers on her eyes cracks me up! I love your homemade sentiments. Seriously, I think you should think about going in to business creating sentiment stamps. I'll be first in line! Each card is such a fun representation of you, my dear! You're beautiful in every way!! Have a happy new year my friend!

Lynn said...

Oh my gosh...these are so fabulous! I love them all. So very fun!!

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...simply over the top fabulous here! Love how you used those flowers with Audrey, just genius! And your sweet spa gal, simply adorable. And you are correct, I would love those those papers as fabric, I would whip up all kinds of little goodies for my 12 kits teamies. So happy you like your gift, I was inspired by all your gardening gal cards and when I found that fabric, it just screamed your name! Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!

Michelle said...

Aaaah..... tres jolie indeed! Each beauty is clever, crisp, clean and lovely in every way! But that slider/wardrobe change card? Genius I tell 'ya!
Wishing you and your family a fun-filled New Year and a happy, healthy 2018!
I am so grateful to have you as a 12 Kits/CTS teammate (and friend!). Mwah!

Darnell said...

You brought excitement with your kit makes, Michele! Now I want to go to Paris, try on all my pretties, go play with makeup, and pretend I'm Audrey!! A fun way to start the new year! Happy New Year wishes back to you! Hugs, Darnell

Michele I love all of your cards, the coin slider is absolutely brilliant and so much fun!! Spa lady is always awesome and Audrey Hepburn with the flowers is just fabulous. So glad you enjoyed the kit and Happy anew Yesr to you and Tom. Best wishes for a wonderful 2018. xo

Linda Callahan said...

Charming....delightful.....and oh so chic......just like you!

Lisa Elton said...

Your quick change card is beyond brilliant (with those sweet polka dots to boot)!! How fun that we both gave our Eiffel Towers a dose of those sweet little flowers. Looks like April in Paris for us both! But I have to say that Miss A peeking out from behind those flowers is my absolute favorite. What a cute idea! Wishing you and Tom the Happiest of Happy New Years filled with many many Blessings!

Bobby said...

Your cards couldn't be more fabulous, Michele. That slider is so creative and the spa gal done all in blue is so soothing as a spa should be. Adding the flowers to Audrey's hands was such a wonderful idea. You've outdone yourself with this kit. Happy New Year and may it bring you much happiness.

Nora N. said...

AS always, your cards are amazing!! I think I like the way you used the flowers on the last one the best. GREAT design!!

Sharron said...

Wow, these are so over the top creative, gorgeous--and fun! Audrey peeking out from a bouquet of blooms is so clever. And the slider is so very cool. Love that design--the polka dots make it even more fabulous! The collection of sentiments go perfectly with spa gal too. I think we all really enjoyed Tracey's awesome kit! Is your year off to a good start? Sending wishes to you and Tom that this new year is happy and healthy, along with a good dose of fun! And hope to see you in person again before the year is over!

Lindsey said...

Michele, a costume change?!! Get out! You are seriously the best. I’ve gotta do this with my leftovers. My nieces are both little seamstresses and love designing clothes. They’d get a kick out of it for sure. And Audrey peeking behind the flowers...brilliant! I have the best time seeing how you use these kits. Love you and your overflowing creativity!

Lindsey said...

PS I wanted to cut those sentiments with speech bubbles, too! I thought it would be a perfect little boost to send to my sister, but I just couldn’t quite figure out how to finish the card. I may have to follow your lead on that one as well. :)

Anita in France said...

A collection of loveliness, Michele ... each of them. Love the quick change ... so ingenious ... and elegant! Cool, soothing blues for spa day ... delicious blooms to show off Audrey's style ... and you just know I'm smiling all over my face at the Tour Eiffel! One day, my friend! Big hugs, Anita :)

Barb Ghig said...

Four really FABULOUS cards, Michele! You nailed it, for sure, and I have to say that I think you've become the 'Queen' of the penny slider!!! I love how you've showcased all the lovely images, papers and dies with your feminine and classy cards...WOW! Thanks for all of the awesome eye candy!

Anonymous said...

inspiring - thanks for great ideas!

artful-notions said...

To be on the same team with you is a joy! Always inspiring, always innovative, ALWAYS FABULOUS!!! the slider, the dies you used, colors, and oh, Audrey with the blooms... well done lady! (Can you hear the applause?)

Jeanne J. said...

OMG! You did it again.. Audrey with the hand full of flowers?!! Never saw that coming.. so cool and clever.. or should I say .. "So Michele"??? The slider for the dresses is brilliant too! I confess interactive cards scare me.. they seem too complicated for this brain.. so I'm doubly in awe of you today! Amazing post as always! And Happy New Year!!

Donna said...

I echo Jeanne's comments completely about those 'peek a boo' flowers and just love that slider card with those very pretty dresses.
Awesome job, woman. x
