The 12 Kits of Occasions--March 2014


Hello, friends!  Another month has come and almost gone, believe it or not.  I hope it's beginning to look like spring where you are.  This month's hostess for the 12 Kits of Occasions, Kelly, has certainly set the mood for the coming season with this beautiful kit:


As wonderfully filled to the brim as this kit was, I'm sorry to say I only managed two cards, and I just barely squeaked those in!  I'll share more on what I've been up to instead of card-making in a future post.  For now, I hope you'll forgive me for leaving so many lovely supplies unused (yet).


Full supply lists of every month's installment of the 12 Kits of Occasions can be found on the group blog.  You can also find links to each designer, special guests, and sneak peeks of each month's kit!  Be sure to stop by and become a follower if you haven't already.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Christina...both of your cards are fabulous! I love your Easter basket filled with so many beautifully colored eggs! And it looks so pretty with the striped paper too.

These are so pretty, Christina! It's warm and sunny here today in PA (a high of 60, woohoo!) Hope it's warming up where you are; I know that New England has had a brutal winter!

I only had enough time to sneak in 3 cards...
so you're not alone, Sweet Friend! :)
But as always...
you create such gorgeous beauties...
and make it look effortless...
I'm in awe! :)

Your card is beautiful Christina...love how you decorated your basket of Easter eggs and the combination of patterned papers and cute eggs on your second card. Anxious to hear what you have been up to...great job with Kellys kit!

Happy Dance said...

Two sweet cards! Love the little basket filled with the colorful eggs, and in my world, you can never go wrong with stripes, polka dots, and gingham! Love these. Bev

Beautiful projects Christina!!

Oh Christina, I'm really going to miss your always perfect monthly creations. You have such a wonderful sense for placement and colors! Love today's cards--those colorful eggs are such a joy. And your 'good egg' card is so sweet. Enjoy your break from stamping but if you have a quiet minute when you want to make a card, I would love if you share it. Wishing you lots of happy family time. HUGS, Sharron

Well, if you only were going to make 2 cards, you certainly made them stunning. Love how you colored patterns on all of the eggs. I wish I had thought about that. And, great use of the eggs and patterned papers on your second card.

Christina, you could make one card with the kit and I would get excited!! And you used my favorite gray gingham paper (which I hoarded) so you get triple extra credit bonus points for that ;)! SO sweet and homespun with the layered eggs and the "embroidered" floral paper at the bottom. Your Easter eggs are colored to perfection! So cheery with the striped paper! Thanks for all of the months of inspiration your have provided, always a joy to stop by your blog!! ((HUGS))

Christina I love your cards, I always do. I adore how you coloured all the eggs in your basket. I can CASE you because I didn't touch mine. You do what you can do, stay tuned for a post from me on those lines. :)

The Paper Parade said...

Christina, did you do all those patterns on the eggs in the basket free-hand? I love the patterns! I can't believe that you said you just "squeaked" out the cards because they are just as beautiful as always!
