Christmas In July - July 2017


Hello....Kim here, I am your hostess for Christmas in July. I love this holiday and look forward to spending my summer being crafty, watching all the new Hallmark Christmas movies and seeing what this years ornaments will look like! My Christmas shopping is not finished but I do have all the supplies for all the gifts I will be sewing up for friends and family. 

I put together a mish mash of stamps, dies and paper for my kit, no real theme other than Christmas, I tried to keep it simple. Scroll down to see all the holly jolly cards from the rest of Santa's elves.

July Guest Designer

My Guest Designer for Christmas in July is Ardyth from MASKerade.  Ardyth has an wonderful style that she gives her cards, it's like she weaves magic into each one! I have had the pleasure of meeting and crafting with Ardyth twice and have seen her in action, it is amazing to watch!

It's a Guy Thing - June '17


Hi all, it's me, Michele!  I'm so happy to be the Host for our June 12 Kits of Occasions Blog!
My little kit "It's a Guy Thing" is full of pun-y sentiments, and gorgeous PTI papers, for all those wonderful guys in our lives.  I hope my team-mates used the kit for Father's Day, but I'd bet we all have sons, nephews, and husbands who may have a birthday, graduation,
or are celebrating life in any number of special ways.

 Lindsey [our fabulous resident photographer] has shown a sneaky peek at my Kit.  If you want to know each and everything about any of the Kit contents, it is shared above under the Monthly Supplies 2017 heading.

OH! I also have a guest this month:  Bobby Hagen, of Bits & Pieces fame... she was dying to get her hands on one of our kits - I know she'll do wonders with it... here is Bobby's fabulous, fun, fishy featured 12 Kits card:

Happiness Is Homemade - May 2017


Hello ~ Birgit here as your hostess this month.  My theme for May is called "Happiness Is Homemade" in honor of my mom who passed two years ago this month, 2 days after Mother's Day.  She made a wonderful "homemade" life for us as she loved to cook for her family and was always doing something crafty.  I hope that through the contents of this kit, you get a small glimpse of some of the things my mom enjoyed.  

I'm happy to have two Guest Designer's this month.

April '17 -- "Hello, Friend"


Hello all, Sharron here! Welcome to the April reveal by the 12 Kits of Occasions! If you haven't visited before, we are a group of friends who have found a fun way to share our love of creating and give a little inspiration to each other. We each have one month where we prepare a kit which is mailed to all the other members. Then at the end of each month we post our creations to share. Hope you too find some inspiration as you hop along and visit each blog.

My kit this month is a tribute to all the wonderful friends I have made through my crafty adventures. One can never have too many friends, nor happy mail cards to send their way. The kit started with some wonderful papers from PTI. I love succulents! And because I am always drawn to sweet critter images, I had fun putting together some favorites for you to enjoy!


Guest Designer

We also very lucky to have Marcia Hill at Marcia's Stampin' Pad as our guest designer this month. Welcome, Marcia! It's so great to have you join us! Just wait until you see all her fabulous designs! Be sure to visit her blog so you can leave her a little love!
