12 Kits of Occasions - a Little More Summertime!

Marybeth is our fabulous host for July at 12 Kits of Occasions - it's no surprise that she's extending our celebration of Summertime being from the State of perpetual Summer:  California!  Here's a peek at just a bit of the goodness in her Kit:
[thanks Lindsey!]

I had no problem spending a day with this Kit!  Ready, set - go!

 "Take a slow ride - and I hope to see you again soon!"
 "With lemon-lime, puckered up kisses!"
 "just swingin' by to say hi!"
[this guy is so cute - just have to give you a closeup!]

"We've got a groovy kind of love!"
 
Marybeth, it was so much fun spending a day tripping with your fun Kit - thanks so much!

Okay, my friends... it's time to send you all off for a delightful ride through all the wonders that are waiting for you at the 12 Kits of Occasions!!!  See you there, where you'll also find all the details of Marybeth's Kit!

Oh my dear Michele, I knew you'd think of some clever ideas using those darling purple onion images. Your little friends going to explore the world is so cute!! I love the route 66 sign... completely adorable! The little bunny in the floral frame is so darling too. Did you fussy cut the inside of that frame? You gals and your love of fussy cutting puts me to shame. I guess I'm a lazy crafter because I avoid fussy cutting like the plague. Anyway, your cards are all as sweet as can be. The pink and white scooby van.... yes please!!

Such a fun kit! So many cute images and you've highlighted each wonderfully, Michele. Those turtles in that clever first card are fab. Puckered up kisses made me smile. The oh so sweet bunnies! One on a swing! So charming. And the bus full of critters are off on a wonderfully pink adventure. LOVE each project. :) Thanks so much for sharing! Hugs!~

Michele, Michele. All a feast to behold! I absolutely LOVE your cleverness! Each card needs careful study and proper adoring so I'm going back for seconds. Honestly wish we lived closer, so I could bug you in your craft room on a regular basis. Big hugs sweet friend!

Dear heaven, does that hamster cage wheel of creativity in your mind ever stop. All these cards are so stinkin' cute and sweet, they make my teeth ache. Can we talk about your amazing use of papers and coloring of the adorable creatures? I'm so impressed, I'm just sitting here with my jaw on the floor.

Oh my gosh Michele...CUTENESS overload!! Those images from The Purple Onion are so dang cute to begin with, and you made each one even cuter with your fun cards! Love your Route 66 card and the little pink and white mini van card too...what is 12 Kits going to do without you?!! Your talent is amazing my friend!! :0)

Marybeth said...

Wow , Michele! You always amaze me every single kit! I so love the way you cut the inside of the wreath and added that sweet bunny and pretty scalloped edge. Loving that sweet play swing card too with the uncolored front..... I love that! Oh wow you did such a beautiful job with my kit! Thank You !

Sweetness abounds in this post Michele! I couldn't figure out how I wanted to use the turtle and snail, love yours! The bunny swinging in front of the pretty green plaid paper is darling and I am swooning over the gray with pink stripes for your groovy pink VW van!!

Jeanne J. said...

So much cuteness here.. that little turtle hitting the road with his bag packed has me smiling ! I love how you cut the inside out of the wreath and added the little bunny inside - so clever and sweet! .. and then that close up with the dotted scallop emboss... swoon! . I love that you cut the pattern paper with a die on the last one too! It's pretty in pink time for a road trip!

Sharron said...

So much sweetness--love how you worked your magic with Marybeth's kit! The little snail and turtle are so adorable setting off on their adventure. And I love how you fussy cut the wreath to make room for your sweet bunny. I think the little critters on a road trip have such a cool van. Bet they get lots of looks when they tootle down the highway! And I adore your die cut using the pink & white stripes!! Were there lots of hatchings today?

donna mikasa said...

Oh I LOVE them all! My fave is the VW bus with the added baggage on top--so clever!

Barb Ghig said...

You always do an amazing job with your kit, and this month is no exception! Every card that you created is so cute, Michele! It's always hard to choose a fave, but I have to say, the 'Road Trip' with those darling critters and pretty striped papers is the BEST!

Tracey McNeely said...

So many darling cards Michele! I always love to visit and see what you have done with the same ingredients I have. xo

Michele ... you've worked your special magic with Marybeth's kit ... what a delightful collection! They're all wonderful ... my particular favourites are the two POD bunnies ... your colouring on them is brilliant ... and they're set into such lovely designs! Hugs, Anita :)

Michelle said...

As always, an amazing display of lovely layering and color/coloring! Oh, but those little bunny cards are just THE cutest- LOVE every perfect detail!

Another kit used to perfection, you must have the biggest collection of amazing cards at this time. You have been so busy, I love all of these and lots of inspiration for my purple onion stamps.
