The 12 Kits of Occasions!

Hey there! I'm guest designing once again this month with the fabulous ladies of The 12 Kits of Occasions! Joyce is this month's hostess with the theme of "Let's Go...". She sent out oodles of travel themed goodies in her kit.



First up I have a cityscape layered on a black panel and PTI Vintage Cream card base. I die cut the sentiment with my PPP Stitched Banner Duo then topped it off with one of the large suitcases. Love the pop of rich burgundy! A few black gems as accents and this one was complete.



My next card makes use of some of the fun patterned papers from the kit. I die cut the navy paper with the PPP Story Book 1 die then backed it with the airplane paper and a sentiment. This panel was adhered to the striped paper (Mama Elephant die cut) then onto the PTI Vintage Cream card base. I popped up the small suitcase in the last opening then accented it with a trio of rhinestones.



And finally I have a New York cityscape that I colored with colored pencils, matted with my fave Mama Elephant dies and accented with the prettiest light aqua rhinestones. Our niece and her family live in NYC, so this will be saved for them!




I still have goodies from Joyce's fantastic kit and will share more for sure! Thanks so much for visiting today. Be sure to check out what the super talented 12 Kits ladies have to share. Until next time...~Lisa

Oh, Lisa--I really love everything you did with this kit. I squealed when I saw how you used the suitcase on your first card--so clever and a fantastic way to anchor a banner and sentiment. Love the collage you made on your second card, and the brilliant coloring of your New York card.

Hi Lisa great cards! The first is so clean and formal with the peek of black on the corners, and then BAM all that color - great mix of papers and patterns. I think the last is my fave. You added such soft color to the skyline and just the right amount of bling!
