The 12 Kits of Occasions - April 14

What would you do if, magically at your doorstep, was a box filled with wonder
of all of the above?
First gasp…
then giggle…
and then, make cards!

Good morning and welcome to a guest post for 12 Kits of Occasions!
I was asked to be their guest this month.
And by 'their' I mean all the wonderfully talented designers of 'The 12 Kits'

Jeanne Jackna is the sweet elf who left these gorgeous goodies above on MY doorstep!
Here are my cards!

All in my box of goodies, die cuts, ribbons, jewels, and designer papers!

The center of this set of cards was also included, a gold embossed on white card stock.
So elegant a look needed an equally elegant setting!

…with matching envies and stickers.

There's more!

Die & papers, & jewels, oh my!

This die cut of a navy parasol was also in the box!

How did Jeanne know I'm about to be a grandma again in just 22 days?

Well that's it folks, I could have done many more, but if you like to see more of the 
magic set of wonders done by the 12 kits (and 2 guest designers this month) check 
it out here:


  1. Nancy, we are so excited to have you as a guest this month! Yes Jeanne's kit was absolutely 'gigglelicious', I have so much leftover. I'll use it once I see what everyone else has done. Your cards are all stunning, and I am not surprised at all. Love how you used the gold embossed pieces and turning the parasol upsidedown was brilliant! Congrats on the forthcoming arrival of another grandbaby!

  2. Oh Nancy! I am in heaven here! You made everything look elegant and decadent! All they layers and layers are gorgeous! And then bam you hit us with all the clean and elegant white and gold in the center... swoon! Every time I look I see a little something more.. the washi peeking out on the blue flower and little bit of stitching. ... and the fancy umbrella that you dressed up is wonderful. Congrats to you on your new grandchild!

  3. I am so excited you joined us this month Nancy...I am a huge fan of yours and what a package we received...right? Love all you have done, especially the umbrella card...great idea to tip it upside down, that is adorable and congratulations in advance of your new grandchild! I also love the gold card elegant especially with the matching envelopes and stickers. So glad you joined us this month!

  5. Wow, your cards are gorgeous! I'm so glad you were able to join us this month. Jeanne's kit could make one giggle, couldn't it--such fun! Love your layered beauty and those gold embossed images with white. They are stunning! Your card with the raindrop paper and inverted umbrella is so sweet. Love your design and the added embellies on the umbrella!

  6. Yay! So glad to see your fabulous cards using Jeanne's kit. I can't think of anyone who would be more perfect to guest design with a kit created by Jeanne than you. You took my breath away several times today, Nancy!

  7. You have been one busy girl! These are gorgeous! I agree with Lindsey you were perfect for Jeanne's kit.
    I love what you did with the gold embossed images, I need those stamps. They look great with the PTI kit. Love the dots you added to the umbrella such a sweet card, and I bet you cant wait for the baby.You rocked this kit as I knew you would. Sorry I am so late to comment, but you know yesterday was crazy with the fires.
