12 Kits of Occasion July ~ Best Summer Ever

Hello stamplings~  It's hard to believe that the end of July is here and that summer on the east coast will be over soon.  This month's kit was put together by sweet Marybeth from Marybeth's Time For Paper and everyone that knows her, know's she has flawless style and the most sweetest personality to match. 
Her kit is titled "Best Summer Ever" and this truly was the best summer "kit" ever! 
 Thank you Marybeth for a darling kit!!
Let's jump right in to my cards:

This mason jar from The Greetery is new to me and after using it, I wasted no time before purchasing this set.  The banners are cut using some of the beautiful  Echo Park Best Summer Ever papers that Marybeth included in her kit.  The lemons I added are from The Scrapping Cottage.

With paper as cute as this, I just had to add this watermelon from Spellbinders Fruit Salad.  The Luscious Script Hello die is from Poppy Stamps.  Don't you just love the chunky layers??

More lovely Echo Park papers and this sweet Garden Poppy Stitched Frame also from Poppy Stamps

These flowers from Concord & 9th Filled In Florals are stunning, don't you think?  

And finally, stay cool with these refreshing Cool Treats also from Concord & 9th.

That's it for my summer magic!  I have plenty of leftovers for creating more summer fun in the future.
Be sure to visit the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how my talented team mates used Marybeth's kit.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Each card is amazing, Birgit, and each one has such special little elements to it! I love your gorgeous lemons with the mason jar, and the patterned paper flags are wonderful! So fun to see your watermelon die cuts with the watermelon paper and the addition of that little gingham too! My jaw dropped when I reached the colored tulips and just stayed there through the little "ice crystals" on your snow cones! I love them all, Birgit!

I see oodles of summer prettiness in these Birgit! I like the lemons with the mason jar and the way you've colored those pretty little poppies. I still have the ice cream cones and I like your idea of adding sparkle to them. Another amazing job with the kit!

Such a great collection of summer time goodies, it's always hard when you post so many cards to pick a favorite, love the lemons and a mason jar for lemonade for a summer birthday, love how you used the I Cor. verse, pretty flowers for the friend card and the sprinkles on the ice cream is a great touch!

A beautiful collection of cards my friend. Each and every one of them perfectly paired with the papers and just the right amount of extras added to them, your snow cones are just so yummy with the icy toppings! I love the lemons too!

Oh, Birgit, I'm so sorry to be so late with comments! I only make it part way through blogs before we had to leave for vacation. All your cards are so wonderfully like summer! Love your lemons, just perfect with the Mason jar. And the watermelon with the paper couldn't be a better match. Your tulips are so beautifully colored and that is such an amazing card. Then you ended with the popsicles and icy sprinkles on your snow cones--a wonderful summer treat!
