Hooray! It's time for another 12 Kit of Occasions
. Our host Jessica (from The Paper Parade
) put together the cutest Halloween kit, and I loved every single thing in it! Make sure to hop over to The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog
, so you can get all the details on the kit and see a peek at the other awesome designer's creations.
|Here's a peek at the kit.|
When I first opened this kit I was a little giddy with excitement when I saw the color scheme and the super cute papers. The little orange monster was my favorite, so I decided to make him the focal point on my first card. I only have two Halloween sets with me at the moment, but I kind of loved how the little bat from one set looked perched atop the "boo" from my other set.
I thought the embossed spiders on this next one were so neat that I didn't want to cover them up, so I kept it super simple. After just typing that I realize how odd it is that I felt that way considering I can't stand spiders in real life. Eww...the little creepies do just that...creep me out. Still love 'em on this card, though.
This next one is my son's favorite. I intended to color my mad scientist, but when I was playing around with the layout, I decided I kind of liked the contrast of the white...kind of like color blocking, so I went with it. I love how the different shines of the purple stand out against the big blocks of color.
I'm entering this one for the CASology Cue Card: Science
Challenge. It ended up being a bit more layered than I intended, but I just loved the teal and had to use it.
My final card is my favorite. I adore this spooky row of houses, and this card came together so easily. I'm pretty sure this fuzzy yellow brad was always meant to be a moon and this paper was definitely meant to be a sky. :) And yes, I even snuck a little vellum on this one. It seems to be making an appearance on a whole lot (like the last five in a row!) of my cards lately.
And guess what? I have a few more cards to share, so stay tuned. We've had SO MUCH rain the last few days. It's been pretty continuous and school even got cancelled today because of the amount of flooding in this area. As soon as I get a hint of light outside, I'll take some pictures and share the rest of my cards. Make sure you take some time to hop around see all the other designer's fabulous creations. (This kit is seriously so cute!) It will definitely be time well spent and you'll finish with a smile.
