A New Year of Birthdays - January 2021

Hi there crafty friends! After a bit of a break we are back again this month with another monthly installment of the 12 Kits of Occasions! It's Tracey here and I'm your hostess for the January 2021 Kit! I thought that all of us could use a fun and upbeat kit this month so I sent all the ladies on the 12 Kits team a birthday themed kit. For all the details of what was in the kit, check the Monthly Supplies tab up top. 

 I invited three friends to be my guests this month and play along with us.

So let's get things started and on to the hop. Follow the links below each card to see all the projects they created with this month's kit--you won't be disappointed!

Simple Leaves August 2020

Hello there! Welcome to the : 12 Kits of Occasions . 

Marybeth Lopez, here today as I am the Host for the month of August.

Keeping this kit very simple as many have lots going on during these crazy times.  My hope with this kit is that it won't take up too much time to create a simple card and that it would be fun.

This ended up being mostly leaves so I kinda kept with that theme.
Blessings to you all.

12 Kits of Occasions June 2020 - 'Love is in the Air'

Hello friends!! It's Michelle here and I am the hostess for the June 2020-12 Kits of Occasions kit that I am entitling 'Love is in the Air'!  The month of June may include more that a few LOVE related occasions...... bridal showers, weddings, anniversaries (Happy 63rd to my in-laws!!) or perhaps another heartfelt celebration! With that in mind, I've created a kit in hues of mauve, gray, my favorite periwinkle and a touch of gold,. In addition, there are a few newer items from Concord & 9th, Pinkfresh Studio and The Greetery, some classic Papertrey Ink and The Stamp Market stamps/dies and more than a few additional goodies from the stash (since the pandemic necessitated a bit of 'in house' shopping)!
So, let's celebrate all the beauty and love in our world today.......and sit back and relax and enjoy all that the DT has to share with you!! You will find the June 2020 supply list here.
P.S. - As an added bonus, I have an extra kit to give away! Please leave your comment here on the 12 Kits/June 2020 blog and I will choose a winner by 7/10/2020 (US residents only please)!!
The winner of the June 2020 kit is JOYCE!! Many thanks for taking a peek at the DT creations.... and for all of your generous comments!!

12 Kits of Occasions May 2020 - April Showers Bring May Flowers...

Hello friends.  Marcia here and it's my turn this month to be hostess for the 12 Kits of Occasions and we're celebrating all the flowers I see in my neck of the woods in May...snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, lily of the valley, lilacs, cherry blossoms, etc.  Life has been very different for most of us lately, but the seasons are right on schedule (well mostly...little bit too much snow in May for my liking!!), so let's celebrate all the beauty and color in our world today and sit back and relax and enjoy what all the DT has to share with you today!
