12 Kits of Occasions June 2020 - Love Is In The Air...

Hello friends.  Hard to believe another month has gone by in this year already, isn't it?!!  June has typically always been a BRIDES/WEDDINGS month, and our sweet hostess Michelle has put together a beautiful kit for us this month at The 12 Kits of Occasions celebrating all things LOVE.


Michelle's kit was so thoughtfully put together and I was able to create 5 cards and a couple tags so quickly and still have plenty of supplies left over to make lots more!  (I'm always inspired by my team mates, so I've learned not to use the whole kit at once so I can CASE the other gals!!)

Michelle had a whole panel stamped and embossed in bright gold that I had to play with first, and since she had used a larger square envelope to send some of the kit elements in, I decided to use that and make a square card to match....


I used a SU! embossing folder for my background and also the envelope flap, and then cut out the gold embossed tree and sentiment and layered it with the blue cs Michelle included and also some gold mirror cs I had on hand.  Had to decorate the envelope and also the inside of the card...


Easy peasy and I have a very elegant card to use for the next wedding I go to!



I just LOVE the flowers that Michelle stamped and die cut, and thought they looked perfect with the lacey background paper she included.  I die cut the white oval frame from my stash (Pinkfresh Studios) and layered it on top of the dsp and gray card base, and then added the flowers and the small ribbon wrap from The Greetery's Fit To Be Tied set.  I think this card would be perfect for wedding, anniversary, or bridal shower.



This card would work for a wedding or anniversary too, but I was thinking bridal shower when I made it because of the soft pink color.  Lots of Greetery goodies on this card plus some of the sparkly clear sequins Michelle included that have no holes in the centers...I love them!!  :0)



I thought this card would work well for an anniversary card and I think it took me a whole of 10 minutes to put together!  Michelle stamped the pretty pink flowers, and then I made a frame using the piece of cardstock that Michelle used as a folder to hold all the goodies she sent in this kit.  I used PTI's  Pierced Feature Frames dies to cut out the frame and added foam tape to the back, tied a piece of the yellow & white bakers twine that Michelle used to tie the folder together around the side of the frame, and then added a small tag (PTI).  Another easy peasy and done card.



Michelle included this beautifully stamped background from The Greetery's Print Shop: Fresh Floral Background Stamp and all I did was adhere it to a gold layer and white card base, and then add the sentiment, some gold thread, the die cut flower, and a few more sequins from the kit.  This card will definitely be for a wedding!



Michelle also included a couple tags, and of course being the tag lover that I am, these were the FIRST things I worked on!  The "happy" tag is obviously not for a wedding, but I already have a recipient in mind for this tag, and couldn't resist blinging it up with a few more of the lovely sequin mix that Michelle included.  The other tag could definitely be used on a wedding or shower gift.



And here they are all together, and I couldn't be happier to have a stash that I can use for weddings, anniversary's and bridal showers.  Thank you Michelle for such a BEAUTIFUL kit...it was a true joy to work with it!  And now I'm going to hop along to the other gals sites to see what they came up with using this same kit, and you can too by clicking right HERE.  You can also click HERE to find a full list of all the supplies that Michelle used in her kit.

Your tags are so sweet as well. I should have separated mine and made two. You're always so clever how you use these kits. What a wonderful post using Michelle's darling kit!
