12 Kits Of Occasions {March 2014}

Monday, March 31, 2014

Welcome to the March edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions!
The theme, "In like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb"
This month Kelly has put together a kit for us that has us all ready for spring!
Be sure to stop by The 12 Kits Blog for a full list of supplies and projects by the other designers as well as this month's guest, Karen Stein.
For this card I took a stamped image included in the kit, colored it with my copics, and then sliced a line with my craft knife right at the top of the basket.  That way I could insert these large die cut eggs.  I love the look of the over-sized eggs in the small basket.  The eggs that were stamped in the basket are concealed behind the large eggs.  Didn't even know they were there, did ya? ;)

This little guy was so cute
 I added the sentiment on the inside instead of the card front.
That little bird paper clip was one of my favorite things in the kit!
So cute!
And finally, a festive spring wreath!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Here's hoping spring will be here soon!

  11. When putting together the kit, wanna hear something? Those birds were a last minute addition with you (and Jeanne J) in mind! I just knew you both would do something fantastic with it! Love it with the flower in the little collage! How funny that the bunny is ending up in the big egg. Not gonna lie, I was stuck on a bow after seeing your creation behind the ribbon one just ended up on the top on my card :)! I cannot even wait to try a WREATH like yours with my dies! It took my breath away when I saw it on the blog this morning. Don't even get me started on the big eggs in the basket. I am so psyched that I own all this stuff already, LOL! I have so much inspiration to pull from now! Super-dee-duper congrats again on your new DT position at WPlus9, soooo happy for you!
