Happy Sunday and welcome to The 12 Kits of Occasions - July 2016! Our lovely hostess, Marybeth,  has put together an amazing kit with a "Christmas in July" theme. LOTS and lots of beautifully colored/foiled papers and die cuts! I can't wait to see the lovely projects from the DT. You (and I!) will surely be inspired and I hope to use this creative opportunity to get a head start on holiday cards.
So..... be sure to head on over to the 12 Kits of Occasions blog and take a peek at some fabulous projects!

CAS(E) this Sketch #183

Happy Thursday and welcome to CTS #183! This beautiful sketch is designed by Chrissy... and, oh, just take a peek at the lovely little bird that is this week's inspiration. There are lots of fabulous creative cues from the CTS design team too!
Since I have no larger birds (stamp or dies.... can you believe that??) I've subbed in the adorable little Paper Smooches birdhouses and a few teeny, tiny birdies. Totally CAS, using only green (PTI's Green Parakeet... how apropos!) and black inks, and the perfect little sentiment.
We hope that you'll be inspired and will join in the fun at CAS(E) this Sketch #183!

CAS(E) this Sketch #182

N@Ali has designed a beautiful CTS #182
sketch to inspire one and all! As always, there
are many lovely projects from the CTS DT......
I always find a technique, color combo or design
that is pin-worthy and/or sparks some bit of creativity!
We hope that you'll feel the same and will join us
at CAS(E) this Sketch #182!
We have a few weddings are coming up soon, so I've
created a very simple white/gray card - with a snippet
of ribbon and some tiny pearls.
P.S. - please welcome our GD,  Daša!

CAS(E) this Sketch #181

Happy Thursday and a big welcome to CTS #181, where you'll find a fantastic sketch from Leigh! So versatile and so perfectly CAS.... I could've made a collection of cards in one sitting using this sketch. Oh, wait, I did! All variations on the same theme, using my new-to-me SSS dies and many different sentiments. This grey/multi colored one was my favorite (although I created a bunch with a black bg and colorful blooms that were pretty cool too).
We hope that you'll be inspired to create and play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch #181!
P.S. - A happy hello to our fabulous GD, Sandy!

CAS(E) this Sketch #180

Happy July and welcome to CTS #180..... and another beautiful sketch from Sam!
I was totally inspired by these perky patterned papers and a few perfect dies from Frantic Stamper (Elementals #14, Stitched Rectangles and Accessory Words #3). LOVE this aqua/yellow combo! Don't this just make you wanna have a pina colada by a pool (or beach) right about now?
We hope that you'll find the time to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch #180!
And....please welcome our a-mazing GD, Gemma!

The 12 Kits of Occasions - June 2016!

Yikes! I am waaaay late for the 12 Kits of Occasions/June 2016 party. My apologies to all, most especially our hostess with the most-est, Joyce, who has packaged a beautiful Birthday themed kit entitled "A Birthday to Die (CUT) For"!  SO many happy and brightly patterned papers, lovely dies and perfect party sentiments! I've created five cards, but have an abundance of wonderful leftover bits to create many more, which will surely be inspired by many of the fabulous projects from the 12 Kits DT.  Many thanks for taking a peek!
