What better way to bid farewell to August than with a 12 Kits of Occasions post! I have the pleasure of being the hostess this month. I put together a "Teacher's Pet" kit for the team with some of my favorite items included. You can find the complete supply list on the 12 Kits blog here.




I am completely smitten with Stacey Yacula's stamps at Purple Onion Designs! I added this happy little owl to a couple of PPP Stitched Tags die cuts.



I adhered 4 or 5 extra layers to the top layer of this PTI die cut apple. The sentiment (PRS) is on a PPP Stitched Labels die cut. Everything was added to a note pad!



I was over the moon excited when I found one of my all-time favorite October Afternoon papers online! I bought the last four 12 x 12 sheets from a store in the UK. It was like Christmas morning when that package arrived!




Doesn't this little bunny look confident as he marches his way to the bus for his first day of school! The tires on that little bus are big black brads. I also added tiny rhinestones for the red flashing lights and headlight!



I just love this milk carton to pieces! It's such a cute size. I fussy cut the bird and sentiment before adding them to the PPP Stitched Essentials tag.




I tucked a snippet of leftover paper featuring a big red A behind the PPP Scallop Square Tag along with leaves, flowers and the hand. When the little flap is opened there's a sweet mouse hiding inside! 



That's all I have to share today. But stop by tomorrow for more projects made from my kit! I used every single item in the kit and then some! Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm headed off to visit my teammates. I hope you'll do the same!

Oh, my, oh, my, oh, MY! I am sitting here in awe of your lovely projects, Lisa! I knew when I saw all these goodies that you were going to have the most adorable cards on the planet! Yep, YOU DO! Love, love, love what you did with every little piece of this kit! You know, I have fallen in love with this October Afternoon paper and could not find it available anywhere on line...now I know why! Thanks for sharing it with us, it is so precious and sweet. I also love what you did with these adorable Purple Onion Designs/Stacy Yakula images...they are all so sweet. I can't wait to see your cards tomorrow, although I'm on cuteness overload right now and am not sure how much more I can handle! Thank you again for inviting me to play along this month, my friend, it was a real pleasure!

Lisa, my sweet friend, your kit was over the moon! And so are you amazing projects! You gave your cards and milk carton so much thought and love, I adore the tag with the blue bird and felt flowers on the milk carton. I wanted to hoard it so much. Looks like I'll have to order the die. Every project you did, a feast to study! I loved every bit and button. Used so much for my creations, but still have so much left over! All my cards and projects were for my grandkids, and they loved them!!! Hugs, and thank you!

Birgit said...

Oh Lisa I'm speechless. I adore each and every one of your projects just as much as I adored working with this darling kit! I wanted so much to hoard those October Afternoon papers. I can see why you were so excited to find some. I saved out some goodies because I knew I'd want to CASE you all and now I want to CASE all of yours! Thank you so much for such a fun and inspiring kit!

Love the brads for wheels & the gems for the lights--brilliant! Love the felt flowers & that darling notepad! I'm guessing school starting makes one grandma I know pretty happy--haha! Kisses for Sweet P & hugs to you, my friend!

Lisa what an awesome and certainly timely kit that you sent to all of us. I have lots left and hope to make some more projects in the next couple weeks. All of your cards, are as I expected, super sweet and layered perfecty. The scene you created with that owl is too fun, then the layered apple (in my cart at PTI now), love the way you coloured the strip of pencils, then how you coloured the bunny is perfect, the milk carton is darling then finished your peek a boo card. Love! xoxo

What a FABULOUS kit you provided every one with this month Lisa...loving every one's cards and especially yours! So much detail and love poured into every card!! And those milk cartons are so darn cute! I would love to go check that die out but since I just made a bit of an expensive order to The Purple Onion Design Co. I guess I better hold off! I was not familiar with the stamps and every one of them are SO cute that I just couldn't resist filling up my cart! Thank you for enabling!! Loved all the buttons you included in your kit too...can I ask where you found those? Thanks so much for all the inspiration...loved it!! :0)

Goodness, Lisa, I can't say enough about your fabulous kit--loved it so much! And you've done such magical things with your cards. I've scrolled through them several things to not miss a single wonderful detail. Your layering looks fantastic! Love all the Purple Onion images and the adorable school buses. This one is even more fun with the brads and rhinestones. Thanks so much for a truly awesome month!

Lisa, I think I've made it pretty clear that I was head over heels for your kit, and now I'm head over heels for your projects! Oh, that little tag on your carton! Your bird is colored perfectly! And I wish I could CASE your apple card. I loved the enclosed apple...I might have to pick that one up. It's too fun. And all the darling images you've used. You are so good at the collage look! Thank you so much for the fantastic kit. (PS I just love the softness that is always reflected in your projects...I just know you must be the loveliest person in real life. :) )
