Summer is flying by at lightening speed. It's the last day of July, how can that possibly be? The only good thing about it is that it means it's time for our 12 Kits of Occasions post! Kim Heggins is our hostess this month. Her kit, called "Christmas in July" was filled with lots of goodies to help build up our Christmas card stash. Mine is in desperate need! 



Isn't this a fun little trio! I fussy cut the image then framed it with a PPP Stitched Photo Frame die. The pups have glossy accents on their noses.




Isn't she a prim and proper kitty! 



Kim had elements for the kit tucked into this cute bag. I think I'll add a coffee shop gift card to it. The sentiment was die cut using a PPP Mini Tags die. I thought the whipped cream was begging me for a good dose of glitter. Love the way it looks!



The vellum snowflakes here were made with a PTI die.





















This one is my favorite! Isn't this little girl cute! I used a PPP  Scallop Borders die for the snowy hill. I loved the candy cane paper Kim sent. This chevron ribbon was the perfect accent for it. I'll add a sentiment to the inside when I decide where this one will go.

That's it for me. Be sure to visit my teammates for loads and loads of inspiration. I'm headed there now, want to tag along?

Adorable Christmas in July inspiration here Lisa! Each of your cards are so darling. I especially love the glittered whipped topping on your coffee cup. What a clever idea to enclose a gift card in it. Wasn't it fun playing with Christmas in the heat of summer?

Love your cards! My fave is the cute animals poking their heads through that photo frame!

Oh Lisa, as usual, it's impossible to pick a favorite. Your sweet little sledding miss is right up there at the top, so adorable. But the shine on the pup's noses made me grin! We both gave our whipped topping some sprinkles, just couldn't resist. All so merry! Hugs!

OH my darling delights!! I love seeing the different papers from the ones I received - LOve that candy-cane print, and how you've used it for my own favorite of the kit! Look at her stylish glitter-cuffed snow-pants! Each card a charmer, Lisa!

Lisa...you totally rocked this kit! I love all your wonderful and festive cards. Your sweet gift card holder is my favorite, just love all that wonderful glitter you added to your holiday coffee, so sweet! Your adorable little sweetie sledding across the snow dreaming of candy canes is as cute as can be. Just love all your wonderful cards!

Lisa what a beautiful collection of Christmas cards! That first card is so cute and your fussy cutting is fabulous. Love how you dressed up the sassy cat, coffee and glitter is so pretty and sparkly. So many ideas that I didn't have and have filed away for another time. Well done!

Greta said...

I knew this was going to be a wonderful 12 Kits & oh boy is it! You made fabulous cards, Lisa--so love the darling papers! The last one is so darling, but have to say my very favorite is the mocha cup--can't stop looking at it! Have to say, these days all my mochas are frozen! We hit 96 today & hopefully the 109 predicted tomorrow is wrong!
