12 Kits of Occasions...My Spring Kit!


It's the last day of March and time for another kit with the 12 Kits of Occasions!  This month I am your hostess, and my kit is to celebrate spring and Easter!  Kara made this lovely collage of all of the kit goodies which included flowers, bunnies, Easter eggs, and lots of lovely papers from the Pebbles "Front Porch" collection.

Up first is a CAS card featuring the Horizontal Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink over a sheet of Soft Stone cardstock embossed with the Woodgrain Impression Plate from A Muse Studio.



Love these Nestie Eggs from Waltzingmouse Stamps and a sweet bird paper clip from Prima.  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Spring Baskets."

Next up is a little watering can die and some mini flowers called "Perfect Petioles" from Memory Box.  You can use them alone or stack them up to make layered blooms!  The sentiment is from A Muse Studio's "Kindred Spirits" set and the tag is cut with PTI's newest Tag Sale die.


This card was inspired by a sketch by Jen Mitchell at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  I used my picket fence as my "horizontal" strip toward the bottom :)!



The tulips are from PTI's Flower Fusion #11 and the sentiment from Take Three:  Spring.  The mini leaves are from Memory Box, as well as the little bunny with his bitty cottontail!




The bunny from Waltzingmouse Stamps "L'il Buddies" is one of my favorite images and I paired him up with some more WMS "Nestie Eggs" and little printed epoxy dots from Heidi Grace.  Added glossy accents to the heart on the mini egg to match.  The sentiment is also from "L'il Buddies."



This last card is a case from Melissa Phillips way back in February 2010 when "Take Three: Spring" debuted at PTI.  I have always wanted the set because of her cards that release, and finally ordered it this past February.  Here is Melissa's original card...


And here is my version...



So there you have it!  A little bit of spring...we need it here since we got 8 inches of heavy wet snow on Saturday! A big welcome to my friend Karen Stein who is our special guest this month!  You can see the links to Karen's blog and all of the "12 Kitters" HERE.  Our blog  has a lovely new look thanks to the sweet stylings of Tracey McNeely!!  You will find my supply list there, as well as links to our Facebook and Pinterest pages.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Kelly, your kit has been incredible! Loved everything!! All your cards are fabulous and your tag is A+ gorgeous. The flowers are amazing! Of course my favorite card would have to be the bunny one. He is so sweet nestled next to that big egg and the bow is perfect. Lots of inspiration here. Thanks so much for such a wonderful kit!

Kelly--that was one amazing kit you sent out, and I had such fun playing with it. Thank you so much for all the care and love (and crafty supplies) you put into your kit. I love looking at your projects, because I can see the 'right' way to use some of the items that either stumped me or I didn't have time for. I sure hope we have a CASE your leftovers month soon.
