The 12 Kits of Occasions--September 2013


Welcome back for another month of The 12 Kits of Occasions!  This month's theme is Halloween, one of my favorite holidays.  Our hostess, Kim, sent an incredible kit just stuffed with supplies, and the packaging was almost too adorable to unwrap!

My favorite part of this kit was the haunted landscape, so I put it right to work with some striped orange paper, chevron ribbon, and a jack-o-lantern candy bucket.

My next card showcases a few of the papers from the kit along with a spiderweb border.  I love how the yellow and orange pop off of the black card base.


I love this adorable bingo card, so it had to be used with the spiderweb paper, die cut spider, and a Halloween greeting punched into a ticket shape.


For today's last card, I wanted to use this fun paper but found it too busy to use all over the card front, so I die cut a label from the black panel to let the pattern peek through, then stamped a sentiment from an old dollar bin mini set.



I have a couple more cards to share later in the week, and tons of supplies left that I hope to use in the near future.

In addition to the rest of the 12 Kit crew, we have a special guest this month, but you'll have to head over to the 12 Kits blog to see who it is!  While you're there, you can also check out the full list of supplies Kim included in our kit this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my cards!  Have a great day!

That spider card ROCKS! Love it with the layered bingo card and the spider holding the sentiment :) The layered banners are adorable hanging from the webs, and such cute snippets of the patterned paper you chose! Can't resist the Halloween Hill (added to my 12 Kits Must Have List of the Year!!) with your cleverly created sentiment. So awesome, Christina!

What a fun set of cards you made. And, how wise of you to save some of them to share later. Wish I had been so thoughtful. I love what you did with that haunted house die cut. The ribbon, banners and jack o lantern are the perfect embellishments. I love your bold patterned paper flags, and they look wonderful with that black background. And, your bingo card is just too fun. Great idea to use the ticket die.

How will I ever be able to choose just one as my favorite? Not an easy choice, but that haunted landscape with the cute little banners and pumpkin bucket really jumped out at me. Big fan of the bingo card too with the cute little spider on it! Christina...you outdid yourself with Kim's kit...loved it and so glad I got to play along with you this month.

Sorry to take so long to get here to comment, busy week. Your cards are simply amazing, you did so many wonderful things with this kit that I can not wait to CASe! One of the things I just love about 12 kits is how different all of our cards are and yours are just fabulous. My favorite card is your second one with the banners, what I love it that spider web in the lower right corner, just too cute!
