Hi and thanks for stopping by! Can you believe it's that time already? Gosh August has just sped by in a flash - I'm actually posting LATE today because I didn't realize it was the last day of the month. Why in the world did I think that was tomorrow? Better late than never and I hope you will forgive me. Not familiar with the 12 Kits of Occasions? We're a group of 12 friends that love to paper craft. We take turns making a kit for the group. We all get the same supplies, and get to work. On the last day of the month we share what we made. SO fun to see what we did the same and what we did differently.
Our hostess with the mostest this month is Michele Ferguson from I Card Everyone! Michele put together an amazing kit full of wonderful images from Avery Elle, Verve and My Favorite things. You can get a complete list of all the products featured as well as a sneak peek from all the designers with projects here on the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog. Our theme this month is "A Spoonful of Sugar". So get ready for get well and friendship cards. No one makes us feel better than our crafty friends.
There is usually a tricky element included in the kit that I want to keep an eye out for - something that I had a hard time coming up with ideas for. This time for me it would be the clear Kiss Kiss stickers. Michele told us there was a "secret ingredient" in the kit - I can't wait to find out what that was!! Maybe the wood spoon?
I had no trouble with that!! I painted mine pink, wrapped it with some washi and dipped it in some giltter "sugar". I'll be using this as a tag on a little gift basket filled with tea, honey and some other "necessaries" for a sick friend.
I made another little pocket tag to stuff with goodies. Michele gave us a little package of green tea - so tempted to make it and drink it myself.. but did behave in the end, tucking it it the tag and adding a wood spoon from my own stash.
Have a great day and thanks again for having a look around!
