12 Kits Of Occasions {September 2014}

New DT Member
Not sure if you've noticed, but we have been a member short for awhile.  This is why we have had a guest every month, to be our twelfth.  Finally, we have invited someone to join us permanently and she said, "Yes!"
Lindsey of Occasional Crafting.
Welcome Lindsey, we are so happy to have you join us!
The fact that we have been a member short also leaves us without a hostess for this month which is why we decided to do a leftovers month.  We are all revisiting old kits and making new projects.

I had intended to get a ton of Christmas cards done, but I just couldn't get into it.  I'm still not ready for summer to be over let alone start thinking about winter.  So I made a compromise, fall!
I put together a kit last year that was Fall/Thanksgiving themed.
I have used colors, images, and sentiments from that kit for my card today.


At the last minute I was able to make a project using papers from another one of our past kits for this week's Make It Monday.  I loved the paper so much I bought 2
more pads of it to make all of my Christmas tags last year.

We have invited our Past Guest Designers to pull out their leftovers and join us again this month. Here is a list of the past guest designers who are joining in the fun.  Thanks, Ladies!
