The 12 Kits of Occasions ~ July Kit!


Hello lovelies! Summer seems to be flying by at lightening speed. Can you believe it's the last day of July? The only good thing about that is we have our The 12 Kits of Occasions post today. The delightful Marybeth Lopez is our hostess this month. She has given us a {Christmas in July} kit!! 


I used my fave Mama Elephant dies to cut the panels on this one. I think this shows up every month on one of my kit cards! Isn't this snowman fun!! He's standing on a checkered snow mound die cut with a PPP Stitched Borders 1 die.


I finally picked up this PTI tag sale die and I love it so much! The gold stripe paper is actually a bag from the kit. I used MFT circle dies for my focal and a PPP bow to top them off. I added the tiny word joy (Morning Star Stamps) to the Christmas sentiment.


This card is my favorite!! I love the pretty paper and die cut florals paired up with this frame. I used a Reverse Confetti sentiment. This card would work for Christmas or any other occasion. Can you see all of the sparkle on the little bird? I layered on several coats of Wink of Stella!


An inlaid circle die cut and some PPP border dies (Stitched Borders 2 & 4) brought this one together quickly!


I embossed some snowflakes onto vellum here. Isn't this minty green gold polka dot paper PRETTY!! I used a PPP Stitched Borders 2 die on it and the floral paper for added interest. A sprinkling of PPP Marshmallow sequins (4mm & 6mm) tie the vellum into the design.


And last but not least, I layered up some snowflakes from the kit along with this beautiful sentiment then added some Champagne rhinestones.

I had so much fun playing with this pretty assortment of paper and images. Thanks Marybeth!! Hop on over to the 12 Kits blog to see what the team has posted there. You'll want to pay each one of them a visit too, they are crazy talented ladies!! Thanks so much for stopping by today ~Lisa

In awe! Always amazed at how all of us come up with such different results. Your critter in the middle of the double circle die cut is a favorite! Especially love how you used the tag sale bag to cut the most elegant frame! Beautiful!
