12 Kits of Holidays {July Kit}

 
Welcome to the July Edition of the 12 Kits of Holidays!  This group has OFFICIALLY been together now for a year and a half!!  Every single month we get goodies from the hostess for the month. So many new things arrive..... makes it so fun!!!  BUT WAIT.......we have added some new things to our group.......a new BLOG (The 12 Kits of Occasions) and Facebook page.  There are a few little details still to be worked out so be expecting next month to be a little more 'fine tuned' for things like a new badge (instead of the one below) and blog titles.  So please go join our following over on the blog and LIKE us on Facebook!
 
 
This month's kit was sent to us by Christina Maclaren from SeaGlass Papercrafts!  We've been rotating holidays every other month being Christmas but this month was all about Birthdays!  Christina sent so many new to me goodies that I had a blast creating with the kit she put together for us!

I had fun with some NEW to me goodies that may just have to find their way into my shopping cart somewhere......{wink}.
 
Card #1--this was the first one I made with Christina's kit.......and turned out to be my favorite!  I diecut my sentiment into a circle, added gold sequins, and foam tape for dimension!
 
Special 
 
Card #2--uses some adorable little tags that were included in the kit.  I paired them up with some gold shimmer twine, and yes.....more sequins!
 
Celebrate2  
 
Card #3--uses stamps from one of my favorite companies.....Wplus9.  This set is called Sweet Treats and well......it's sweet because it has matching dies!  Woot!  I colored in a couple of the stamped diecut images with Copics and layered together.  I LOVE this glitter tape that was in the kit.....I used it as a glittery border for the sentiment panel!

That's it from me today but let's go check out what the rest of the group made with this kit!!! Make sure to stop by Christina's blog for a full supply list!!!

You have really created some adorable cards Amy...love the kit Christina has sent you all, my favorite card is the one with the big Sun background and the gold embossing on the sentiment is so striking. I am so glad you all have a dedicated blog for 12 Kits now...so many people are going to be able to get inspiration from all your cute cards every month.

Oh Amy! I am loving that starburst card too! Looks like sunshine - and so striking on the black base. And the celebrate is wonderful with the glitter and the cool blue background - the primary colors are so neat in the different shades.

Fabulous cards Amy and I knew I saved that yellow sunburst paper for a reason! Your card is stunning and my favorite of the bunch. But all of your card are stunning and so festive!

How fun! What a great idea. Your cards are so wonderful and would be appreciated by anyone celebrating their birthday.

Christina said...

I am totally smitten with your sunburst card! So simple and so perfect. I still have my tags, so I'm thinking a CASE of your second card may be in order! Love the orange background paper. And your last card is just darling! Fabulous coloring on the cupcakes and a brilliant idea to use the glitter tape as a border on the top panel. Awesome work with the kit this month, Amy!

Lovely set of cards.

Joyce said...

Wow--these are all just fantastic. I love them all, and especially the first card. That sunburst is such a great back drop to your sentiment circle.

Tracey McNeely said...

Amy your cards are fantastic as always, I love the last one the most. How you placed the glitter tape behind the banner and the two cupcakes below--perfection!

Sharron said...

Hope you had a wonderful trip! Love what you have created with the kit! I agree about the sunburst design. It's my favorite too. But the others are pretty awesome also--great way to use the orange paper and the glitter tape was a wonderful addition behind the banner panel!

Amy, the glitter with the cupcakes is delish! And I love the sentiment cut in a circle with the sunburst on the first. What a cool way to showcase the fun tags in the second!
