In Memory Of Our Sweet Friend Sharron Gregory

Welcome and thank you for stopping in today for the last day of the month and our usual 12 Kits of Occasions posting day!




The world is certainly seeing some very difficult times these days with the COVID-19 pandemic and we hope that everyone is staying well. It is also with a sad heart that we let you know that Sharron Gregory, On Papillon Wings, passed away after complications with her heart in the morning, yesterday (3/30). Our hearts go out to her husband Harry and family at this devastating news, and we hope you will join us in sending prayers and heartfelt sympathies their way.

Please check back in a couple of weeks as we will be doing a tribute post for our dear friend Sharron.

Stay well!

Crafty Friends Are The Best - february 2020

Hello friends! It's Jeanne here, and I'm the hostess with the mostest for the February 2020 - 12 Kits of Occasions kit that I'm calling "Crafty Friends Are the Best!" This month I thought it would be fun to celebrate the friendships we've made through our love of crafting because this kit wouldn't be here today without them!




I've loaded up this month's kit with colorful papers from Vicki Boutin and stamped images and die cuts featuring crafty supplies and critters from lots of my favorite brands!

And because crafty friends REALLY ARE the best, I invited some special friends to play along!

January Leftovers




  Happy New Year!

The first post of the new decade. This month we are sad to say we are losing a couple of members of our design team. We hope to see them back again, but for now we are saying goodbye to Lisa Elton, Lindsey Larson and Kara Lynne Pogreba! Former 12 Kits member Kelly Schirmer is coming back to the team this year!

For January some of the cast of crew of the 12 Kits of Occasions are hosting a leftover month! Goodness knows that with all the gorgeous kits that we send to each other every monh there are always some things leftover or even hoarded--lol! So this month we are digging through those leftovers to create some fun new cards! We are lucky to have some of our alumni designers playing along with us this month using their leftovers too! Enjoy!

The Tags of Christmas


Hello friends.  Marcia here, and I'm hosting this month's The 12 Kits of Occasions with a fun kit I'm calling "The Tags of Christmas".  For those of you that know me, you know I just LOVE making tags, and especially at Christmastime!  Tags are not only fun to make, but also quick when time is short, which it is for most of us during this time of year!  So anyway, I thought my teammates might like a kit that was filled with quick and easy tags to make to use on their own gifts, or even to give away as a quick gift for that someone special!  I've included lots of fun AND beautiful images and die cuts to create with as you can see from Lindsey's AWESOME photo above, so sit back and enjoy what all the gals have created with this kit.

All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Hello!  It's Lindsey here, and I'm excited to share with you my kit "All Is Calm, All Is Bright".  I think that Thanksgiving is the perfect transition to the Christmas season as a heart full of gratitude recognizes and focuses on what matter most.  This year I have greatly appreciated the simple yet magnificent beauty of nature as well as sources of peace in my life.  With that in mind, I designed this kit to hopefully reflect the beauty and peace that nature...and more importantly...that the birth of the Christ child brings. At least for me, when I think on these things truly all is calm and all is bright.  I hope you enjoy!
