The 12 Kits of Occasions ~ October 2016!

Hello!! The end of the month brings with it another 12 Kits of Occasions post. My especially sweet friend Michele is our hostess this month. Her {Let's be Thankful!} kit was packed full of prettiness and practically self assembling goodies!!



First up is one with some FUN patterned paper! Those typewriters were just too cute to cover or cut up, so I made use of the whole sheet!! I added three small pieces to the corner that were die cut with my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs dies. File folders, typing...perfect together! And who doesn't love a good office supply like these itty bitty paper clips I added!



This polka dot gatefold card was included in the kit as well. The thanks is part of the actual card base, cute huh! I just dressed it up with this BEAUTIFUL floral paper along with the glittery green tape. I punched out  two tiny Martha Stewart butterflies and this baby was complete!




I dressed up the inside too!



More of the floral paper (that I am swooning over) was die cut with a PTI bookmark die. The PPP sequins from the kit match this paper perfectly!!



Finally I watercolored...well, smooshed and die cut (Mama Elephant) a panel to add a little fall color to the die cuts. I love how artsy this one looks!


There will be more to come from this kit when I get them photographed! Don't forget to pop over to the 12 Kits blog to see what the team has to share. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us!!

Have a delightful day! Thanks for spending a bit of it with little ol' me ~Lisa

Love every one, Lisa! Your typewriter card is just awesome! The file folders and paper clips are such cool additions. And what a wonderful idea to trim the bottom of the 'thanks' card and finish the inside. Love your watercoloring too!

These are all so lovely, Lisa ... fun typewriters, gorgeous florals (inside and out!), and deliciously, artsy watercolour background to those wheatsheafs! Hugs, Anita :)

Jeanne J. said...

So sorry I'm late Lisa! Gosh what a beautiful post.. not knowing where to begin.. how about with that watercolor? - what a stunning background for the die cut wheat? I LOVE the double border on the thanks split card - and oooh.. the bitty glittery butterflies!! And the little die cut files and clips with the typewriter paper have me grinning! A real treat to visit today!
