Celebrating 38 Years!

Kara took the pretty photo of the kit for all of us.

 Welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions for June! The theme is Wedding and Anniversary, and I am the host for this month!

Our guest designer is the very sweet and talented Lindsey from Occasional Crafting

We are 12 friends and designers , each month one person from the group sends out a kit to everyone. At the end of that month we post the cards that we all made from the same kit. Its fun to see the same products used in different ways. 

Thought I would show you the 12  messy piles before each one got wrapped in tissue and put in an envelope.

These fun little birds above are from Mama Elephant
 The gold embossed Calligraphy Scroll below is from
 Paper Source 

The stamp below is from Impression Obsession Love Is

The Confetti  dots are from Paper Source, I stamped them 3 times in different colors.

My husband and I celebrated 38 years this June. I gave him this card below, I know lots of pink. ( I got married when I was 12, jk)

 I love this outhouse from Impression Obsession  I think it makes a fun wedding card. Its silver heat embossed.

On the card below I used the tissue the kit was wrapped in, behind the Impression Obsession heart die cut.

 Be sure to head on over to the 12 Kits Of Occasions Blog To see the list of all the designers and their sneak peeks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.

  4. Patrick and I just celebrated 22 years Friday...
    he robbed me from the cradle too! :)

    I loved it and loved hoarding it too because I don't have a lot of wedding/anniversary goodies! *wink*
    Saved that outhouse for my mom later on this year...
    it's perfect for her so I was excited about it! :)
    Just such a gorgeous kit...
    and such gorgeous creations...

  5. First, let me wish you congratulations on your 38 years of bliss. I have an anniversary coming up next I am happy to see all this great inspiration to make a card for my hubby.
    I so look forward to these each month to see what everyone has done. I'm trying to talk my two stamping buddies into doing something like this...but they are both such busy ladies...maybe at a later date.
    Almost forgot, as always, your cards are all so well done...especially like that outhouse card...must put that stamp on my wish list.

  6. This is such a fun way to create with your friends even when they are far from you. I always love ur kit creations and these are all so gorgeous :) I am so inspired :)

  7. Marybeth...this is one fabulous kit, so sweet and so very romantic. I loved each and every piece you sent. Your cards are so amazing and just gorgeous. What a wonderful collection of stamps and dies coming together to make some of the most beautiful cards ever! Thank you so much for the wonderful kit.

  8. as always you have created an amazing set of cards... i especially like the card you made for your hubby... so very sweet!

  9. Absolutely wonderful kit Marybeth. It was like one great big present - everything beautifully wrapped. Love that pic of them all lined up getting ready to be mailed. I bet you felt like one of Santa's elves. I'm thinking... oh.. that is what i was supposed to do here. Love how you used the cie cut outs for confetti in the shaker, The little curls of glitter on the last, and your clean and elegant style. You make everything look so classy. You really spoiled us this time!

  10. Congrats on 38 years, something to be proud of. All of the cards are gorgeous and I live the silver embossing.

  11. 38 years! Congratulations. Such fun it must have been to be a child bride! Love love love all your cards. They are all fantastic. Thank you so very much for this incredible kit. I had so much fun and it was so incredibly easy to create with. One of the most fun parts was that there were whimsical as well as elegant stuff, so I could do a little of both.

  12. First...congratulations on 38 years! Such an accomplishment...second, I LOVED your kit! I had such fun on vacation with it and was able to make my cards with lots to spare! I love your outhouse card...and how smart to use that soft pretty tissue paper behind the heart die cut. Sure wish I had thought of that one! Thanks for a fabulous month Marybeth!

  13. HAPPY HAPPY 38th Anniversary to you and your special guy Marybeth!! The kit you put together is just beautiful and ALL of your cards are amazing!! The last one with the bits of sparkle is so pretty!!

  14. This has been such a wonderful month. Loved all the fabulous items in your kit! And congrats on 38 years with your hubby. Love the sweet card you made for him. All your cards are just marvelous! Love them all but my favorite probably is the last one--using the tissue behind the hearts and the side sentiment and sweet bouquet in the corner all create such a gorgeous design. Thanks so much again for sending such an amazing kit. It was so easy to work with and I loved all the great supplies.

  15. What an awesome kit. Those birds on the first card are so adorable.
    Congratulations on 38 years. I'll be celebrating 40 in February.

  16. What a Gorgeous kit Marybeth!!! Love it!!!

  17. The kit is beautiful and I love all the cards from all the ladies. Congratulations and happy anniversary.

  18. What an incredible kit Marybeth! I am TOTALLY enjoying hopping around to see all of the beauty created with it! Love the picture of the kits all prepped up for mailing! And your cards are GORGEOUS! Each one so very special! I see some items I want to add to my shopping list.....then I can have more NBUS for challenges! Lol! :)
    Happy Anniversary! What a blessing each year truly is!

  19. What a wonderful collection of cards celebrating love!

  20. I loved the kit... the colors were beautiful and soft, the images so fun to work with! First I love your outhouse card :) I just loved that stamp but couldn't figure out how to fluff it up... putting the "happy" on it was the perfect choice! I love the little shaker you created with the word bubble, and then the tissue paper behind the die cut heart of hearts looks great! Happy Anniversary my dear :)

  21. I think this is the coolest group ever!!! I so wish I had friends so I could belong in something like this. It looks like so much fun!!

  22. Happy, happy anniversary, Marybeth! You never cease to amaze me with your wonderful cards--love them all, but especially the one for your hubby & the one with I Corinthians 13. I have that verse in a stamp--need to gold emboss it!

  23. How did I not actually comment on this post?! Shame on me! I thought I had. Anyway, I loved seeing how you used your kit. I've always wondered, do you just put together things first or do you have cards that come to mind as you gather items? Thank you again for inviting me this month. I love love loved it!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love it when you do!
