12 Kits of Occasions April '16

It's the last day of the month, and that means time for
12 Kits of Occasions.

'Crazy for Coffee' is our theme this month,
and the lovely Tracey McNeely (In My Creative Opinion) provided us with
all the goodies above.
Honestly, I LOVE beginning my day with java, 
and love sharing a cup with my favorite people!
So let's get right to it!

I just ordered some watercolor pencils from Prima, and used them 
along with inks for my projects.

Donuts and coffee? Yes, please!

Tracey sent us this tag wrapped with twine.
I just loved this little guy with the die cut open arms.
Inserted the heart, included in our goodies, and added the 'expresso thanks', 
also in our package.

Another of the cute coffee die cuts together with a fun sentiment!

Tracey's papers were double sided, and I loved this one with the car's 
dashboard approaching "E". 
Couldn't resist arranging the sequins as coffee spilling out.

And last is this coffee bag I gave a die window, filled with beans
and added some more coffee dies.
Loved all the sentiments Tracey gave us, but this was my fav!

Our guest is Amy Tsuruta, drop by and give her some love.
Can't wait to visit all the designers of 12 Kits,
and see what they've done with all their coffee goodies!

Hope you all have a great spring weekend!

  18. Where to start Nancy, all of your cards are just fabulous. I love how you coloured the coffee mug and added the sequins, the pretty sprinkles on your doughnuts, the coffee cup full of sequins and your fabulous decorated coffee bag are just a few highlights from so many sweet projects!
