12 Kits Of Occasions {May 2014}

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Today is a very special day.
It's the last day of the month when we share our 12 Kits Of Occasions projects.
It's also my 11th wedding anniversary!
Joyce is the hostess this month
and she put together a fun red, white, and blue, nautical/Father's Day themed kit for us.
This month we also have 2 guest designers.
Lindsey won her kit from a little contest Joyce had on the 12 Kits Of Occasions Blog.
Sherrie is a surprise guest that Joyce selected.  She kept it a secret from us for a long time too!
I can't wait to see what they have made with their kits.
This first card is a fun collage of elements for Dad.

I decided to make a shaker for this card.  Since my sequins were all different colors {none of which matched my project} I decided to use vellum instead of acetate.  This way the colors from the sequins show through, but are very subtle at the same time.  The colors didn't matter.

For this one I had a little fun with my washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Make sure to visit the other girls and see what they have made.
I'm sure it's awesome.

Your first collage card is so cool--and a great way to use a bunch of fun stuff all at once. Love the way you used the washi tape as well. And, thanks for the brilliant tip about the shaker and vellum. That's a handy one.

  16. I love these cards even more knowing the kit you used. The first collage one is brilliant and my favorite because I would have never thought to use the supplies that way.

  17. Loving how you made the birthday card a shaker card! What a fabulous idea! Then that first card with all the sentiments really reminds me of Broadway signs in New York :)
