Guest Designer: 12 Kits of Occasions


Post 2 of 2 for the day....click HERE for my Your Next Stamp Guestie post




I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer for The 12 Kits of Occasions!  The April kit, hostess -Tracey McNeely, designed the Crazy for Coffee kit.  How appropriate, eh?!  Thank you Tracey for asking me to share in the fun of your super awesome kit!

Here's a quick explanation of how the kits work HERE.  I follow many of the girls on the Design Team and it is absolutely amazing to see the different projects they design based on the same kit!  So.much.fun!

The ingredients of the kit are HERE.  Let's get started, shall we?

I couldn't wait to make a shaker card when I saw the Pretty Pink Posh sequins!  I combined them with the Essentials by Ellen - Oh Frappe + All Inside stamps.  Gah, how cute is the bear holding the mondo coffee mug?!


Next up is the Lil Inkers Coffee Cozy die set with the Reverse Confetti Be a Barista sentiment!  That awesome coffee sleeve is made of cork, I love cork.  The PTI Aqua Mist base makes everything POP!


I wanted to incorporate an ABC project - anything but (a) card.  I love the kraft coffee bag and altered it with a tag!  The frap cup is from Essentials by Ellen - Oh Frappe and the sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's For the Love of Latte.


My tag was inspired by the current, Tag You're it Challenge:


Thanks to Tracey and all of the Design Team...I'm going to be able to make several more cards/projects over the next several weeks!  I can't wait to hop around and check out how everyone else was inspired!
