The 12 Kits of Occasions - Christmas in July


Good morning! I'm so thrilled that my friend Kim asked me to be the Guest for the Christmas-in-July edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions!

This is a group of 12 crafters who trade 'kits' each month and make several cards using the goodies included. The photo above gives you an idea of all the amazing products that were included in the kit this month and I really felt like Christmas had come in July! I had so much fun creating several cards!

As you can see the kit included quite a bit of patterned paper - this is something I don't use very often, so it was fun to come up with different ways to incoprorate it into my cards.

Welcome, Ardyth, to our little 12 Kits group this month! Lovely to see your use of patterned paper - it's part of the beauty of this group for me, as I don't often use it either! Kim's papers truly made it easy though, right?
Darling cards!

Ardyth...welcome to the 12 Kits group! So happy you agreed to play along with us this month. Your cards are simply fabulous and they all have your incredible look! Your first card is my favorite, so in love with that adorable trio of critters. You totally rocked all that patterned paper too, can't wait to pull out all my leftovers! Thank you again for being our 12 kits guest!

Ardyth these are all fabulous! You are such a natural at this. I love the first card and how you use the paper with the buses and how you combined the coffee die with the dashing by sentiment! That you for joining us this month!

So happy to have you joining us this month Ardyth! Your cards are all fantastic. You should use patterned paper more often, you did an amazing job with it! I love your Dashing by card and the sky you created for the Bethlehem card. Wonderful work, all of them!

These cards are all so festive and fun. Exchanging card kits is a very clever idea.

It's so wonderful having you with us the month, Ardyth! Love all your fabulous cards! You really did an amazing job with Kim's pretty patterned papers. I also had the one with the vehicles and I thought it was so cute but couldn't think of anything clever. Your design is just perfect! And your Bethlehem sky is beautiful!

Oh you lucky girl! How much fun did you have with that kit? Looks like a bunch and while that pp is not your go to thing...you rocked the kit each card has your distinctive stamp on it. Love them.

oh Ardyth these are amazing - love your 'signature' CAS style and die cuts on these wonderful cards - especially the Little Town of Bethlehem one.
