Party in the Park - February 28, 2019

12 Kits of Occasions: February 2019

Greetings from (not so) Sunny California, 12 Kits fans! Nancy here, and I'm your hostess this 
month, bringing you a 'Party in the Park'.
The theme for February centers around a celebration of the hope of Spring; outdoors, birthdays, 
lots of fresh clean air, friends and flowers in bloom.
12 friends with the same kit... ready? Let's open the windows inhale fresh air and celebrate!
Maybe it's a birthday or a church picnic. Maybe a stroll with friends along a park path or 
imagining the warmth of the sun as blossoms begin to open... Ah, Spring!

A list of this month's supplies is available at the top of the blog. Hope you enjoy!

Good Fortune - January 2019

Welcome to The 12 Kits of Occasions!    I'm so excited to be kicking off the new year  with  an Asian themed kit filled with wishes of love, laughter and friendship!   I tried to include a little something for everyone..  dancing lions, ninjas, pagodas, girls in kimono's and of course, some Chinese take out!    You can find a complete list of everything that was included in the kit by clicking on the Monthly Kit Supplies tab at the top of the page. 

Here's a peek at the kit...

I invited a few special friends to play along because crafty friends are the best!   Click on each designer's name to jump to their blog to see EVERYTHING they made with the kit.    I know you're going to be glad you did!

Periwinkle Party - December 2018

Welcome to The 12 Kits of Occasions...... the December 2018 edition! The DCWV 'Serene and Elegant' paper collection was the start of our latest kit, with it's beautiful shades of blue and coral, lovely gold accents, pretty patterns, PLUS some wonderful journaling cards that can be de-constructed and added to cards/tags or can stand on their own as the focus of any project. A few floral-y additions, a trio of adorable llamas, the cutest little squirrel and an abundance of elegant sentiments are the finishing touches!
Please be sure to hop along and take a peek at all of the creative inspiration from the fabulous DT! The lovely December 2018 kit supplies can be found here.
P.S. - We will be saying 'au revoir' to two of our long standing, and much loved, teammates- Jessica Davis and Michele Ferguson, both of whom will be terribly missed. All of our very best wishes to these two lovely ladies!
However, this also means that we are welcoming our newest DT member, the oh-so-talented Marcia Hill, who will be joining us in creating with our December 2018 kit!

A New Year

Happy New Year!

As the end of the year has passed and we start out a new one we are sad to be
saying goodbye to a couple of our team members.

Our so sweet Jessica Davis, who was one of the original member of the 12 Kits of Occasions team is stepping down as she and her family are moving on to the next phase of their life. We will miss Jessica and her talent but we hope you continue to follow her blog at The Paper Parade where maybe she will share some of her new adventures with us.

We are also saying goodbye to Michele Ferguson from I Card Everyone. Michele has brought us fun and fabulous creations for the past few years and we will miss her witty sentiments Michele's signature style is to complete the sentiment on the front of her card with her own brand of humor on the inside!

Best of luck to both of these amazing ladies! You will definitely be missed!

With that we are saying hello to our newest member of the team, Marcia Hill of Marcia's Stamping Pad!

You may know Marcia from her fabulous creations on her blog and her obvious love of papercrating. I hope that you head over to  her blog and have a look, you will love what you find there.

Marcia, is starting with us today with the December kit that goes live at 6:00 am (EST)!

It`s Christmas!

Hello it's Tracey here and I am the hostess for the November edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions!

As I posted at the end of November because of the Canada Post strike my kit to share with my teammates, who all happen to be in the United States, did not get to them in time to create for the last day of the month. So once the whole team received their kits we chose a new date to post and today is the day! You will be getting a double dose of the 12 Kits this month as Nancy is the hostess for December and we will be posting creations from her on December 31st! We don't have a full house participating today--the team has been busy moving, having a baby, big deadlines and lets not forget Christmas--doing life, which always comes first!

As soon as I saw the this year's 'Celebrate Christmas' collection by Echo Park I knew that it was going to be perfect for my November Kit! I included the 6 x 6 patterned papers and some of the 4" x 6" and 3" x 4" journaling cards from the collection as part of the kit. If you have a look in the Monthly Supplies tab above you will see everything that I included in the kit. This is a farmhouse style kit and I hope that not only the girls on the team had fun with it but I hope that you enjoy browsing through our creations!

I have invited former 12 Kits designer Joyce Mehrberg to join us this month!
