12 Kits of Occasions July Summer and More

Hi, and welcome to the July post for 12 Kits of Occasions!
Our hostess this month is Marybeth Lopez from Marybeth's Time for Paper.
She sent us a wonderful kit full of summer goodies! And a bit of 
vacation too!

Settle back, grab a cuppa, and enjoy a bit of summer fun!

First off, Best Wishes and Fuchsias. Do you grow them? The day we hit 100, it's only 
a matter of time until my fuchsias say good-bye! Folks we in the Central Valley 
 broke a record for 100+ 21 days in a row... no happy fushsias here!

I tore the paper card with flip flops and added the palm tree and surfboard to 
a PTI die cut I had on hand. (Do you save your extra die cuts? Think I need another 
room to hold all of mine!) Marybeth included the darling tiki paper.

Tucked this little guy into the embossed wreath Marybeth had in our kit.
Popped up outer paper and added the tag cut from one of the sentiments included.

These bunnies from Purple Onion just might be my favorites. Added them to the
Poppy die cut.

Once again, with a ready made PTI die cut, the lemon lime duo goes with
one of my favorite PTI sentiments.

All these summery cards came together so quickly.
Easy breezy and fun!

Be sure to stop by and give some commenting love to each of the 
designers. Can't wait to see what they all did with July's kit!

Thank you, Marybeth!


  1. Oh Nancy, where do I begin?? All your cards are over the top, stunning! The brightly colored fuschia's stole my breath away (especially since I think I kind of ruined mine with my coloring)... anyway, yours are beautiful! Putting the little bunnies together on the one card is such a sweet idea and that little sleeping mouse nestled in among the flower frame is just darling! Your cards always make my heart swoon. Stay cool in the heat my friend!

  2. these summery cards are absolutely awesome! I loved every one that you put together! What a fabulous kit Marybeth gave to you all! I love your sweet bunnies too...they are just too cute, and the one holding the flower is precious! Oh and thank you for letting me know I won MIM last week, I forget to look! What a wonderful surprise! I won't have any problem spending that GC plus more! hee hee!

  3. These are ALL beautiful and definitely make me think Summer Nancy! Marybeth did a great job putting this kit together and it looks like you had a blast with it!! Those little bunnies from the Purple Onion are probably my favorites too, and absolutely LOVE the card where she is resting amongst the floral wreath...SOOOO cute!! :0)

  4. Nancy , you did magic with this kit each card is bright and full of summer fun! Love the mouse/ wreath with the pink stripes and the lemon lime card.... I think I smell fresh citrus! The background sky of the swing card is absolutely gorgeous! Each one a work of art.
    I know the heat has been so bad here I don't even want to see the bill. My hydrangeas have not been happy either.
    Thanks for making the kit shine!

  5. What a perfectly pretty array of summer cards! Wan't this a fun kit to work with. I am in love with the way you've colored the fuchsia, what a beautiful card that one is. I also love the way you've used the sweet little mouse and bunnies. All fabulous Nancy!

  6. I was not surprised you'd take this Kit and create A2 sized masterpieces, Nancy! LOve the fuchsia, the torn edge on the tiki paper, and OH don't we wish we had another room-full of these darling Purple Onion images to play with? Your bunnies are playing so sweetly together... xx

  7. Nobody does color like you Nancy!! I can't tell you how much I love seeing what you come up with every month! The fuchias are outstanding! I could stare for days!

  8. Oh my, your fuchsias are amazing--so beautifully colored! Love seeing all the little touches of color you have used on each design and your wonderful layering. Your bunnies is so adorable, so sweet when used together. And I adore the stripes, the wreath and that darling little mouse nestled inside! I think we all have fallen in love with Purple Onion! BTW, our granddaughter just came to visit tonight. Her birthday was last week and I gave her the card I made with 'It's PASTURE birthday' from your kit! She loved it!

  9. Five of the sweetest designs Nancy, love the whole flip flop thing you have going on this week, lovely colouring of the fuchsias and the sweet bunnies. There are a few things on your cards I just might have to CASE. Wonderful as always. xo

  10. WOW.....an a-mazing display of card LOVE - full of beautiful detail/layering and fabulous color/coloring!! Your bunny card is just THE sweetest and the fuchsias just jump of of the page!


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