Hello friends. My dear friend Birgit is hosting this month's 12 Kits of Occasions challenge, and has asked me to Guest Design with her using her Happiness Is Homemade kit. How could I say "no" to a kit with that name?! Birgit is honoring her mother (who sadly passed away 2 years ago) who loved everything "homemade" with this kit, and I am so honored she asked me to celebrate her mom along with the other designers from the 12 Kits of Occasions team.
This kit was such a delight to work with...everything was right up my alley! I loved the papers, the colors, the images, the die cuts, the accessories, EVERYTHING!! I limited myself to just 6 cards, because I've finally learned that I always see FABULOUS ideas from the rest of the team, and wish I had saved some of the kit to CASE! So here goes...
This kit was SO easy to use as Birgit did all the hard work putting all the die cuts together, like this apron! Don't you just LOVE it?! The little pocket was left open at the top so I could add the oven mitt and spoon. And don't you just love the DSP? (Bo Bunny "Kiss The Cook")
I had a hard time refraining from using ALL the die cuts Birgit sent with her kit, but really like the way this CAS card turned out using just a few of them! Hard to see in the photo, but I colored the "Enjoy" with a Copic marker and then embossed it with clear powder, so IRL it's really shiny!
Another case where Birgit colored the die cut, so all I had to do was add the DSP and some trim...easy peasy!! :0)
Gotta LOVE Stampingbella images, and this one is no exception! I colored the chicks up with my Copics and then matted with a stenciled background I had found in my pile of "saved" stuff. Added a little banner (MFT) with one of the sentiments Birgit included and finished...another easy card!!
Absolutely LOVE the DSP on this card, and how can you go wrong with strawberries?! Once again, Birgit included everything to make this card other than the die I used to cut out the sentiment and the baker's twine.
And last but not least, a card (and envelope!) using the beautiful Tulips that Birgit stamped! I loved the delicate look of the white border die cut piece, and thought it was so pretty with the yellow cardstock and the Tulips. Loved the die cut "Hello" too!
You can find links to all the 12 Kits Of Occasions DT members and the winner of this month's kit (Linda Snodgrass) right HERE to see what they've done with this WONDERFUL kit! I'm so glad I saved a few things from the kit because I'm always so inspired by what the rest of the DT comes up with and then want to CASE them! Make sure you leave comments, as they always pick a winner to receive the next months kit, and I tell you, it's like having Christmas delivered to your door!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! And a BIG Thank You to Birgit for asking me to Guest Design this month...I LOVED every minute of it!! :0)
