12 Kits of Occasions Guest Designer ~ August 2017

Hello, friends!  I'm so happy to be here today as a Guest Designer for The 12 Kits of Occasions August edition, with the kit designed by the lovely Lisa Elton of My Paper Tales.  Lisa put together a fabulous school-themed kit entitled {Teacher's Pet} and I think it is chock full of goodness!


{Teacher's Pet}


I knew as soon as I received Lisa's invitation that this kit would be amazing, and I was so right!  I spread out all the pieces on my desk and once I started creating I couldn't stop! Every day I'd go back and think of something else to make with what was left.  Her color combinations are so perfect, and I didn't want to leave anything unused!  I made seven projects to share today, and a few more I'll share in the coming days.

So, without further ado, let's get to what I made!  First up, a card I will certainly be sending to one of my son's amazing middle school teachers this fall.  I'm entering this one in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where "Anything Goes!"

Supplies:
Stamps: Precious Remembrance Shop (School Days)
Dies: Papertrey Ink (Enclosed Apple, Pencil Blooms), Pretty Pink Posh (Stitched Labels 1), EK Success (Round Binding Edge border punch)
Papers: October Afternoon (Sidewalks), Lawn Fawn (Let's Polka in the Meadow), Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise)
Other:  Papertrey Ink felt (Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse), black brad


Next up, another teacher appreciation card.  With four school-aged kids, I can never have enough of these!

Supplies:
Stamps: none
Dies: Papertrey Ink (Enclosed Apple), Impression Obsession (Hugs), Mama Elephant (Index Card Creative Cuts)
Papers: October Afternoon (Schoolhouse, Sidewalks), Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy), Bazzill (Juicy Pear)
Embossing Folders: Darice (ABCs Alphabet), Cuttlebug (Gingham)
Other:  K & Company (chalkboard label), black and white twine


I was so excited to see that Lisa included a one layer card with the sweetest Purple Onion Designs image stamped on the front.  What a joy it was to color and add a birthday sentiment for one of my little nieces!  (I had to add a few sequins from Lisa's own mix, Sweet Pea!)  I did a lot of coloring on this card, so I am linking it up to the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge Challenge #257: Make Your Mark.

Supplies:
Stamps: Purple Onion Designs (Wishing), Simon Says Stamp (Birthday Messages)
Inks: MFT (Black Licorice), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Other: Pretty Pink Posh sequins (Sweet Pea), Wink of Stella  


I have several nieces and nephews in college now, so I thought this might be a good card to send to one of them right before exams.  It's always a good reminder to believe in yourself!

Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Script Sentiments)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), distress ink (Tumbled Glass)
Dies: Papertrey Ink (Spiral Notebook Page, Seeing Stars, Pencil Blooms), Pretty Pink Posh (Stitched Tab), Spellbinders (rectangle) 
Papers: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy), October Afternoon (Sidewalks)
Other:  Cuttlebug embossing border, black brad, black pearls


Next up...a sweet milk carton that I hope to fill with goodies.  This might be sitting at my youngest son's seat at the kitchen table after his first day of school...yep, that might happen.


Here is the back...
Supplies:
Stamps: Purple Onion Designs (Mia), Rubber Soul (School Bus), Precious Remembrance Shop (Positive Thoughts)
Dies: Lawn Fawn (Milk Carton), Pretty Pink Posh (Scallop Circle Tag)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Papers: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy), Lawn Fawn (Lat's Polka in the Meadow paper)
Other: Papertrey Ink ribbon (Harvest Gold), Tim Holtz (tiny paperclip),  black & white twine, DeNami Designs (red button)


Well, this sweet Purple Onion Designs bunny reading a book stole my heart!  Paired with an encouraging sentiment from Precious Remembrance Shop, I see another card heading off to a young student in my life!

Supplies:
Stamps: Purple Onion Designs (Zoey), Precious Remembrance Shop (Positive Thoughts)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Dies: Lil' Inkers (Stitched Rectangles)
Paper: Lawn Fawn (Lat's Polka in the Meadow paper)
Other:  Sizzix embossing folder (Framed Tulips), twine


Finally, my favorite Purple Onion Designs image and sentiment banner in a color combo that I adore.  This card is heading to a certain lovely lady who invited me to play along.

Supplies:
Stamps: Purple Onion Designs (Sweet Offerings)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers, distress ink (Spun Sugar)
Dies: My Favorite Things (Stitched Oval Stax)
Other: Darice embossing folder (Oblong Doily) 


Phew! Thank you so much for sticking around through all of that!  Big thanks to Lisa for inviting me to play along with this month's kit, I had a blast!  I hope you get to check out all of the amazing cards made by this month's 12 Kits of Occasions team!

Take good care,
Judy
