12 Kits of Occasions: Tickled Pink!

Hello!  It can't possibly have been a month since I last posted, but somehow it has.  The good news is that I am back and ready to share some happy cards oozing with all things spring and pink.  Tracey sent the most cheerful package that kept me smiling the whole time I created.  You can get all the details on the kit and see the other designers' cards on the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog, so make sure to head there next.  I made what I needed (I remember Marybeth saying that about her kit cards once), so I have lots of tags to share today.

Tracey's kit had so much fun patterned paper and a few of the pages had these great sentiment squares and rectangles.  They made for really quick and easy tags, especially when paired with Papertrey's Fabulous Frames dies.  And I think they turned out pretty cute, too. :) 
And here is the line up all together.  Don't these just make you so happy for spring?
Next up is a super simple card, but it is so nice to make those sometimes, especially when you have something as cute as these feathers to showcase.  It also reminded me that PTI's Linen & Canvas 
Impression Plate is still one of my all time favorites.
My mom loves pink.  This kit had an abundance of pink and some great mother's day sentiments, so it was perfect.  This card was made entirely from items in the kit.  All I did was sponge a little ink on the flowers and put it together.  
Some of the goodies in our kit came packaged in a darling kraft polka dot bag.  I decided to dress it up.  It will be perfect for slipping in a small treat or gift.  My flower was built with the tulips Tracey included in the kit.  I loved them all.
And last is the card for my grandparents.  My grandma loves flowers, so I thought she'd appreciate the sentiment.  I was having so much cutting the frames for the tags and using all the cute papers in the kit that I made one more and stuck it on a card.
Thank you, Tracey, for sending a kit that was so easy to use!  I added just a couple stamps and dies and that was it.  We have an incredible guest designer this month...Suzanne Dahlberg!  Make sure to head to her blog to she what she's done with the kit.  I am certain that you will be amazed.  And while you are out and about, make sure you check out what all the other designers did with their kits.  You are in for a treat.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful sunny weekend!

Your tags are so bright and fun, and your cards absolutely perfect. Have a look at my feather card, and you will laugh. I sure do love yours.

  13. Hi Lindsey! I am in love with those adorable tags, and my CAS loving heart adores that feather card...at the same time, though, I LOVE the last one on kraft - it's CAS, but not - the patterned paper and the flower die cut are perfect for one another. A match made in heaven!
