Hello sweet peeps! It's 12 Kits time! I'm so excited about this month's kit {My Little Chickadee} because I'm the hostess ~ squeal!! I created my kit as a nod to my hubby who's hobby is photography. He has so many amazing photos of birds. Some of my favorites are those of the chickadees. I just love those chubby little guys! More reason for excitement is the special guest designer I've asked to join us this month. Who's that...my amazingly talented friend and PRS teammate Rosemary Dennis of Hey there...rosigrl!

I have several cards to share and special photos by my talented guy too. You can find all of the supplies I included on the 12 Kits blog. Just click on the Monthly Kit Supplies tab. All of the other die cuts I've used for my own cards are by Pretty Pink Posh.



Aren't they a sweet pair!


I fell in love with this October Afternoon paper and knew it had to go into my kit.
The reverse side is the pretty yellow you see on the border.


More OA paper here, isn't if FUN!


I do love this teeny nest. 
What better sentiment that a definition for nest!


Most of the images in my kit are from Impression Obsession, like this gorgeous sentiment! But this particular bird came from an Esty shop.


Isn't this little choir boy the sweetest! 


This pretty lilac branch will be set aside for my mom's birthday!

I'll leave you with these. The first is my hubby holding out his hand for one of the little chickadees fluttering along the trail with him. His other hand is holding his camera that captured this shot!




You can find more of his photography @ shawnsgallery.com


Don't forget to visit the team and my special guest to see what all they have to share. Thanks so much for visiting!

Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for the beautiful kit ! The images are all so romantic! I am a birder so of course I love the Chickadee and all the birds in this kit! I love seeing how you arranged each element. Your attention to detail still amazes me.. the inked sentiment edges, beautiful coloring always eye candy!

Celeste Goff said...

Lisa, I just love the theme! All of your cards are just so precious! And I love the photos that your husband took! I can’t believe he gets them to sit in his hand! Wow!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Awesome job of creating both theme and cards! I do love me some birdies ☺

Vikki H, southern Oregon said...

Your kit is outstanding and your creations equally! When I reached the end of your post I couldn't believe the chickadee shot! Wow! I had to share this with my husband who travels around the world with friends on bird watching trips. His gallery is splendid and we'll be back often to check it out!

Sharron said...

I knew you would create many awesome designs with your charming kit. You do such an amazing job of mixing and layering. Love every one of your cards! I have such a love for birds so your kit was very special to me. We feed our local populations throughout the year and plan every trip away to coordinate with places to go birding. Shawn's photos are stunning! I loved going through the gallery and enjoying each one. Some like the warblers are difficult to see let alone photograph so I really admire his work. Does he go some place special? I also shared them with Harry tonight. Tell Shawn thanks from both of us! And thank you again for a wonderful kit!!!

Greta said...

Wowzer--what amazing bird photos your hubby takes! I love your kit, Lisa--so sweet with beautiful papers! The first card is so unique & beautiful! Your mom is going to love the lilac card! Just got a bouquet from my neighbors--so fragrant & beautiful. Couldn't have picked a better GD!

Birgit said...

Hi Lisa~ What a darling, darling kit you've put together and each of your cards is pure perfection too! I'm always in love with your style and how you pair printed papers. The scalloped edges on your first and second card add whimsical movement to your designs and I adore the card with the tiny nest tag. Your kit was a delight to work with and I can see where your sweet inspiration comes from. Your hubby's photo's are fantastic! I enjoy feeding the birds and watching them from our window. Two Christmases ago a chickadee flew into the window on our door. He was ok, just stunned. He sat on my hand for quite some time before he felt well enough to fly away. I was so glad I got a photo of that on my phone. I'd love to live in Snow White's world. ;0) Thanks for a great kit!

Ivana Camdzic said...

Lisa, these cards are ALL so beautiful and sweet. I adore the darling kit you put together - the colors, patterns, stamped details, accents...Really all of it! And your cards are simply magical! I especially love the way you used the scalloped dies on your first card and second card - so pretty! All the little birdies throughout are such a sweet tribute to your husband and his stunning photography. That image with him holding the little bird is absolutely precious. Such a lovely collaboration of your hobbies!

Sue Lelli said...

Each card is Prettier than the next! LOVE all of the birdies you used and the photos Shawn took! FABULOUS post my friend!

Lindsey said...

This was the loveliest kit, and though late, I am so thrilled I was able to create some cards with it. Thank you! Time permitting, I could have made many more. Loved all the pretty images and chickadees have definitely jumped to being one of my favorite birds. They are just as cute in the illustrations as they are in your husband's beautiful photos. Your cards are just beautiful, each and every one!

Joyce said...

Such an amazing kit you sent out, and I love all of your projects. The photos taken by your husband are stunning.

Misty Elam said...

Each one of your cards are darling. I love all of the different elements. Those pix that your hubby took are amazing!! You can see the food in it's mouth!!! What a talented photographer he is. Those birds are adorable!!

Mona Pendleton said...

Oh wow Lisa! What a fabulous post! All of your cards and photos look fantastic! I can't believe your husband had that little bird perch right on his finger! Thanks for sharing!

Bobby said...

What a talented family, Lisa. Your choice of theme and the stamps and papers in your kit are wonderful. Shawn's photos are spectacular. I'm an avid bird lover and could look at his slide show all day although that owl in the tree stole my heart right off the bat.

Tracey McNeely said...

Lisa I just adored the kit that you sent to us. You chose the perfect colour palette for all these tweet images and sentiments. I didn't use the whole kit and I am glad I didn't because I am being inspired by your post! You always seem to know just how to layers your pieces while still keeping your designs CAS-well done. Your hubby must be the bird whisperer what a fantastic shot of the sweet Chickadee on his fingers no less! Thank you so much for the gorgeous kit! Off to check out Shawn's work.

Anita in France said...

A gorgeous Kit, Lisa ... it's been so lovely to browse through some of the other 12 Kits girls' cards! Yours are an absolute delight ... there's a wonderful charm and delicacy about each one ... just beautiful! Your DH's photo's are amazing ... thanks for sharing them! hugs, Anita :)

Michelle said...

Lisa, I am so sorry to be late in thanking you for such a lovely kit, full of beautiful patterns, colors and new-to-me stamps! Your card creations are equally beautiful....loving the soft, scalloped edging, the subtle coloring/inking and the pretty layering of patterns and stamped images! So, so pretty and detailed!
Many thanks too for some fabulous photos from your husband and the amazing creations from your GD, Rosemary!

Jen Camara Mitchell said...

I love these cards! And I love that you were inspired by your husband's hobby. Each card is sweeter than the one before it. I love the soft colors you've chosen - what better way to show off our fine feathered friends!

Annette Allen said...

all of your cards are just gorgeous.. this kit is amazing and you totally rocked it. I am sure the renovation is coming along. I have been there and know you will be so happy when it is done. I can't wait to see pictures.

Aileen said...

Wow Lisa what an amazing collection of cards, so love the layers and softness of your cards. Those pretty die cut edges all look so pretty I love them all.
