12 Kits of Occasions ~ February

I can't believe how quickly February flew by!  This month's kit was creatively put together by the amazing Michelle Leone of Pretty Periwinkle, who also just recently was offered a position on the amazing PTI design team.  She's incredibly talented and has such a great eye for color and design.   Congratulations Michelle!

 It was a joy working with her kit this month!  The colors were so fresh and springy and all the element she included in her kit were over the top, adorable and easy to work with.  

All of the images and dies Michelle sent were new to me.  What fun to play with goodies that I've admired but never added to my stash.  This scroll frame is incredibly detailed and oh, so pretty!  I fussy cut the flowers she stamped and added them with a couple of leafy twigs which were included in the kit.

She sent the cutest printed papers!  These papers look like they were made to go with this image and sentiment.  She sent the most colorful array of candy dots too!

  I think this card is my favorite.  The little bird makes my heart smile!

I added three brads from my stash to the centers of these sweet little flowers.

Well, maybe this card is my favorite.... you can have more than one favorite, right?  I loosely water colored these die cut flowers using Zigs and tucked this adorable little bunny in the center.  That stitched background panel is AWESOME!! (Insert singing voice here)

These flowers made a sweet and simple card.

Another cute bunny and this pre-printed image.  So fun!  I added a tiny die cut butterfly from my stash.

I love the texture on this canvas tag Michelle sent.  The brad in the center of the flower is from my stash.

This bird image is totally adorable and goes perfectly with the printed paper and wonderful lacy scalloped white card stock panel that was also included in the kit.

This sweet pre-printed panel was included in the kit and I simply attached it to a green gingham & kraft gift bag for gifting.  Easy peasy and as cute as can be!


I colored this fun cake image using Copics and added it to the top of this sweet polka dotted tag Michelle sent.  Two more fun flowers and yummy candy dots in the centers.

Even after all these cards, I have more than enough supplies left over to keep me going for a long time.  Thanks so much Michelle!  What a fabulous kit and so much fun to create with.

  1. What a marvelous array of cards! I love each of them. The flowers arranged around the sentiment and mounted on that beautiful die cut is just stunning. I love the way you combined the patterned papers for the "umbrella card," and another stunning card is that CAS one with the three flowers! You've given me all kinds of ideas for the left-overs from the kit as well as further card making!

  16. Birgit, I'm in awe of all these fabulous designs! I've been by to visit a couple of times but am just now getting to post a comment. You're amazing to have made so many! Love how you used so many of Michelle's supplies and added wonderful details so each one really shines. Fabulous arrangement of the small blooms on that intricate die cut. Leaving some of the pieces in was a great idea. And your birdcage design is especially sweet. Love the cluster of flowers with the adorable bright yellow bird!

  20. Yes, absolutely you can have more than one favorite because I can't choose just one. I LOVE what you've done with this kit! I'd like to add to your two favorites the card with the scroll frame and the card with the cute bunnies and flowers. And I love your idea with the gift bag. I didn't know what to do with that large panel. What an amazing collection of projects you've created!
