Where did the summer go? August is just coming to an end and it's already felt like fall here on the east coast, waking up to 40 degree mornings. I'm so glad I had Michelle Leone's kit for 12 Kits of Occasion to keep me warm in my craft room. She called it "End of Summer Soiree" and what a perfect ode to summer it was!
Michelle has a great eye for color, patterns and style. Her style is clean and classy. I loved all the red, green and blue jewel tones paired with touches of gold throughout her kit. These cards came together so easily. Thanks Michelle for an amazing kit this month!
This is the first card I made using the kit and it's also my favorite! Just look at those gorgeous papers, touched with gold accents, the large blooms in jewel tone colors. GAH! There always seems to be at least one printed paper in every kit that I want to hoard, and this is the one. I wish I had a stack of it!
Michelle included these fun airplanes complete with banners to create some great masculine style birthday cards, which I'm always in need of.
More beautiful papers and gold accented elements Michelle included in her kit. The "Hello" die is from Honey Bee Stamps.
I had been playing around with Ken Oliver Microburst Powders and had this piece sitting on my table when Michelle's kit arrived. The die cut panel she sent was perfect over the top. I simply added the pierced and scalloped ovals from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The large die cut sentiment was included in the kit.
Finally, more of the beautiful papers and this wonderful cake die. I simply added a Happy Birthday circle die.
I hope you enjoyed todays cards using this months 12 Kits of Occasion. Be sure to visit my talented teamies over at the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how they were inspired to use Michelle's kit.
