12 Kits of Occasion - April 2018

The wonderful Lisa Elton of My Paper Tales is our Host for April!  It's Spring, and the card-making was easy ... thank you Lisa for your My Little Chickadee!  homage to your hubby!

Here is a peek at all the lovely goodies we received from Lisa:


Hope you like my cards - let's start with the one from the 12 Kits blog ... you'll find a cute connection with all but one of my cards today... see if you can find it!

Happiness means lilacs, and YOU!  Happy Summer!
 
Now I'll just add the others... hope you enjoy!  OH all Lisa's supplies will be listed on the 12 Kits of Occasions site!
 
Even more wonderful because you are in it!
 
... the egg has hatched!!!  Congratulations on your new arrival!
 
... peanut butter & jelly, Laurel & Hardy... you get the picture. 
I wouldn't be ME, without YOU!
 
Last but not least - I'm so happy to finally own this PPP die!!
 
You'll fill it with love, I know it!
 
So... have you found the connection?  That PTI twine was the only thing I added to Lisa's supplies!  BUT it's those darling little wooden birds that brought the flock together!  Thanks for including them, Lisa!
 
Now, off you go to visit my 12 Kits of Occasions sisters ... they never disappoint, and ALWAYS make me smile!  We also have a wonderful guest this month!

Wow...I could not wait to see what you created with Lisa's incredible kit and I was not disappointed! So many wonderful and beautiful cards. My favorite is your final card using that nest, I had no clue how to use it and now I can't wait to case you on this one!

Patti said...

At "12 Kits" time I just grab my soda and prepare to be impressed!!

Darling cards every one. That, "we go together like birds of a feather", sentiment is to too sweet!! Great job friend.

ooh, these are all so beautiful Michele, I only just found my wood veneers that other day and thought that I will get them out, I adore the look and texture that they add to any card design (and these birdies are perfect)!

Rosemary said...

Really beautiful set of cards, Michele! The coloring on the first one is just gorgeous!

Jeanne J. said...

Beautiful cards Michele! I love the way you mounted each one on a pretty background! I think my favorite is the one with the little hand made nests and tree woodgrain background. What do they all have in common? Well twine of course! I love the natural accent with these pretty images!

Barb Ghig said...

It's always a treat to see how you play with your kit, Michele...and this month is no exception! I love that you included a birdie on all but one card :) I also love how you played with all those pretty papers and darling die cuts! By the way, your PPP die has been on my wishlist for ages...great minds, right? Thanks for sharing all of your lovely eye candy with us!!!

Lisa Elton said...

Oh Lordy, would you just look at those pretty lilacs on those lush green polka dots. Happiness indeed! What a pretty die you used on the egg has hatched card. I've never seen that one. And I am completely smitten with your two birds of a feathers card. Those little twine nests are the cutest and once again I like the scallop die. You worked your magic with my kit sweet friend!!

Cat Craig said...

I love seeing how you play with a kit, super cards Michele.

Birgit said...

Beautiful, beautiful cards here Michele! I just knew you'd rock Lisa's kit and you sure did that! I would stand in line to buy your sentiment stamps. Just sayin... The scalloped rectangle with the little nest of birds is so darling and I love how you paired the Wonderful World sentiment with that sweet little boy. I love the vintage feel! Every card is sweet as can be my friend. Have a happy day!

Sharron said...

Love each one, Michele! I knew you would do an amazing job with Lisa's kit. You always add such wonderful die cuts and sweet touches. The choir boy with that sentiment could not be more perfect. And I adore your precious baby card with the soft color and that fabulous border. Love the touches of twine and of course your awesome creative sentiments that make each design so you!!

LeAnne said...

These ALL make my heart go a-flutter! The images, the colors, the sentiments....so, so sweet and springy! I am heading right over to that 12 Kits blog and check out the list...might have to go shopping!

Ivana Camdzic said...

These are gorgeous, Michele! I love the little birdies and all the Spring touches :) Love that PTI die too - it's one of my favorites! And the scallop border die on the little birdie told me card is soooo pretty! What kind of die is it?! I agree with Lisa, I don't think I've ever seen it before. Oh and the background stitches on the we go together card...So beautiful! Love all of these :)

Bobby said...

You have a way with tags, Michele. Is that the connection? All of these are so beautifully put together and your inside sentiments are perfect.

Eliz Stewart said...

Love all... but truly the new nest card is just adorable!

Anita in France said...

I'm doing some catching up (at last!), Michele ... have been checking out all your recent cards ... and had to stop here to let you know what a bevvy of beauties you created here! Each one is so perfectly put together ... and each just lovely! My favourite? Honestly, after scrolling up and down, up and down, I couldn't choose ... they're all a delight (though I am rather partial to the scalloped edged one and do love the wonderful world sentiment)! Hugs, Anita :)

Sorry to pop in so late Michele, I as out of town this week. Of course I knew that I would not be disappointed when I stopped by your blog today. I wish that I could harness just a bit of your creative spirit because you always do the most wonderfully unexpected things with your kits with the way you arrange and cut your images. Beautifully coloured lilac, choir boy, the birds nest and the eggs. Swoon swoon swoon! xo

Hi Michele! Every little bitty bird and feather put together so perfectly! Loving the little nests under the 2 wooden birds. Your flock is beautiful, as usual!!!

Michelle said...

OH.... love, love how you've tied all of your beautiful cards together (pun intended!!)- such pretty blends of kraft and soft blues/yellows/greens! Your die cut vellum card front is just so lovely, as is the curved card with subtle coloring and the perfect circular sentiment. Hard to pick a favorite from this amazing and beautiful bird-y collection!
