Well, hello strangers! Did you think I was never coming back? The last several months have been absolutely crazy around here, and crafting has definitely not been at the top of my priority list. But I have tried to escape from my responsibilities for a few minutes here and there this month, and so I have 5 cards to share with you for this month's edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions.
Our hostess this month is Sharron, and the theme is love and Valentine's Day. Sharron sent such a fantastic kit with a color combo that I absolutely adore as an alternative to the usual red, pink, and white. And many thanks to Kara for creating our beautiful graphic once again this month, giving you a peek at all of the goodies packed into our kits.
My favorite card was the first one I made, shortly after my kit arrived. I love the striped paper and the pretty script in the sentiment. It's hard to see in the photo, but the Sahara Sand cardstock was debossed with a music score impression plate.
Sorry for the shadows on the next card, but I popped up the die cut "happy" with teensy pieces of foam tape in a few spots. I used another of my favorite papers and some of the cute die cut accents from the kit.
How do you like these cute elephants? I think they're adorable, especially paired with the matching paper. Such a cute sentiment from Mama Elephant, too (of course!).
For my next card, I layered the pretty heart doily with the word "love", along with a couple of stitched die cut hearts and gold sequins.
My last card is sort of a work in progress, and maybe you can help me finish it. I've had it sitting on my desk for at least a couple of weeks just like this, and I feel like it needs something else. I've tried buttons, twine, sequins--nothing quite works. I think it's ok the way it is, but it's just a little blah. Any suggestions?
That's all from me, but I have so many cute supplies left to use. I can't wait to see what the rest of the 12 Kit Designers created with them:
And our Guest Designer for this month, Michelle from Pretty Periwinkles.
