12 Kits of Occasions: May '18 You're a Good Egg

Hello everyone! Welcome to the last day of May, and 12 Kits of Occasions, where you
are treated to 12 designer friends and their creations! 
This month I'm hostess, and my kit is themed 'You're a Good Egg'.
My husband and I live on 2 1/2 acres and raise chickens for their eggs.
By day they roam the homestead, and at night are snugly tucked into their coop.
To say they've won our hearts is an understatement! We affectionately call them 'the girls',
and have to say, we smile each time we crack open an egg!
And with that in mind, may I present this month's kit... full of chickens and eggs and 
hopefully a few 'cluckles'!
You'll see lots of Lawn Fawn this month, especially their set, 'Hay There', and some of 
their wonderful papers.
I've invited 2 friends this month, Colleen Foelker, and Linda Snodgrass.
Be sure to drop by and give 'em some love!
So get comfy, put your feet up, grab a cuppa, and enjoy. There's a whole lot of 
crafty country to see!
Remember, all products are listed on the 12 Kits' products page.
And one more note: I'm an affiliate for PapertreyInk. All their products I used are
hi-lighted and are a direct link to their shop. If you like something I used, I'd love it
if you use my link up. Thanks!

It's all about farm life with my box card made with Lawn Fawn's sweet images!

The scene was made using Lawn Fawn's Scallop Pop Up Box Card die set.

Included in the kit was Lawn Fawn's Simple Grassy Hillsides...
can't wait to see how my teammates used it!

Adore these sweet Lawn Fawn ducklings!

These 'farm fresh' images from Carta Bella are mounted around

Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper. I had the stitched square and rectangles left over from 
the pop up box. Skillet & egg carton: Cottage Cutz.

I saw these chicks from Stampin' Up on Pinterest and had to add them to my stash. You can 
still get them on eBay, but be forewarned... they're pricey. See the one with the funky hair?
That's chick attitude. LOVE it! Oh, and btw, Those are real feathers off my girls, discarted
not plucked. The grandkids love to collect them from the coop.

Chicken Wire, hen & egg also Stampin' Up.

Last card is some ombre inking over a Cottage Cutz die set. 

Hope you enjoyed a bit of card making country style, and hope you
visit the 12 Kits designers for more fun on the farm!

Hugs, y'all!


  1. Nancy! Your cards are just as fun as your Kit! LOve the addition of the feathers - in fact, I was truly surprised that a few didn't fall from the package! Lots of cluckles, indeed... I'd just love to see all of your girls strolling around your yard someday! Well done, my friend!!

  2. Nancy, your kit and cards are all so fun! I had the best time playing with the images in this kit. All of your cards are amazing as always and I especially love the addition of the chicken feathers. I'd love to come spend time with you and your girls!

  3. Nancy I just absolutely loved your kit this month, it was actually just the cheering up that I needed--thank you! Each of your cards, as usual, just wows me. I love your creativity so much. I have that exact same LF box almost done on the table in my studio because I thought the image you shared were a natural for it--I just ran out of steam. Is that photo of one of your girls? she is beautiful. Thank you for the wonderful kit! xoxo

  4. many festive and fun cards, really love them all! I almost made that LF box too, but at the last minute decided to go with a mini card set. Your scallop box is just so much fun, makes me feel like I am on the farm, just love all your wonderful little details! All of your cards are so sweet and so colorful, just love them all and so much inspiration for the few leftovers that I have. Thank you again for the fabulous kit!

  5. Oh my goodness, Nancy! I enjoyed each one of your cards and seeing all your wonderful papers and images come to life on your cards! It was so much fun to hop along and see how everyone used your clever kit! A true tribute to your "girls"!

  6. Oh.What.FUN!! Your cards are ALL absolutely FABULOUS my friend!! But the pop up've stolen my heart and I think I need to CASE you Nancy! My granddaughter Addy would absolutely LOVE a card like that! And to think they were all inspired by your "girls"!! I'm about halfway through seeing how every one used your kit and am just loving all the creativity!! I'm sure every one smiled big time when your kits arrived and it's showing in all their cards. Thank you for so much fun inspiration my friend...absolutely loving it!! :0)

  7. Oh these are SO FUN!! I love all the fun finds in this kit!! Your cards are amazing!!

  8. Goodness, what a wonderful treat to see what you created with your awesome kit! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! Your pop-up box is so precious and a perfect way to show off the adorable little critters. This is the first time I ever saw the Stamping' Up set and just love all the chicks. It would be wonderful to see all your girls too!

  9. LOVE those box cards, and yours is perfection! The chickens are just adorable, too.

  10. My goodness these are amazing! I loved your kit and so fun to learn more about your girls. :) Your box card, the darling ducks splashing in puddles, the real feathers, and the stampin’ up hens are favorites. So much inspiration here!

  11. Nancy I just got home last night from my week up in the Seattle area with Linda and seeing her heart is full of joy and love, they are perfect little beings...a true gift from above! Darnell and Marybeth joined us and we had so much fun just talking...not a lot of crafting, we gabbed too much! but Marybeth was only with us one night all one not enough time to get too inky! But we loved learning about each other and sharing our stories! Thank you again friend for thinking of me and asking me to be your guest...this was a lot of fun, I loved all your elements in this kit and YOUR cards are out of this world cute beyond words! So much creativity, you are amazing! I loved playing with what you sent and have lots left over, so more cards can be made! Thank you sweet friend...wish we all lived closer together to meet more often! have a wonderful week! Heart Hugs, Colleen

  12. Real feathers ~ how nifty is that! We need a photo of the whole flock! Thanks ever so much for an extra fun kit. All of your cards are as equally as amazing as your kit Nancy. Can't wait to make more with my leftovers after seeing all of your inspiration!

  13. Nancy I so enjoyed your kit! I would love to raise chickens , yard probably not large enough. The thought of cracking an egg from my own hen.....I will have to be happy about about each lemon and lime we use. I’m sure you know that feeling too.
    Your cards are just darling each one,love the real feathers ! I saved some items and you have inspired.
    I had the best time with Colleen ,Darnell and Linda......we planed a trip years ago that had to be canceled.
    One day we will meet but blessed to be friends now.

  14. First you hit me with that explosion box and wow.. it just keeps getting better and better as I scroll down ! I didn't know you had chickens! How cool! The feathers added to your card are so pretty I wish I could touch them! You even ended on a bang.. I love how you colored up that "rise and shine" word die cut! Your kit was amazing and I really enjoyed working with it! I feel like I had a visit with you today reading your post!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
