Little More Summer

Photo by Lindsey!

Hello and welcome to the July 12 Kits of Occasions!

 I am the host for the month of July. I wanted the kit to be 
 easy to create, with fresh bright colors and
 images of summer. 

Something about this fresh lemon and lime stamp that I just love!
I bought it with , Linda, Colleen and Darnell at Impress Cards and Crafts
Keeping this card simple , I added the new "Best Wishes " die from Poppy Stamps

 For the card above I used : Carta Bella : Summer Splash, along with Papertrey Ink 
Bitty Big and On the Wagon for the surfboard and palm trees. 
I added Glossy accents to the boat, pink bush, surfboard and palm tree.  

Card above I used Purple Onion Design Stacey Yacula  : 
Floral Wreath and Sleeping Mouse.

This card I colored in with Zig brush pens . Stamp used : 
Pretty Pink Posh Flourishing Fuchsias. It's layered on top
of the Poppystamps : Delicate Branch Collage

 This one was so fun! I used another scene form Carta Bella paper. 
The Bus is from Purple onion along with the snail . Palm
tree from Papertrey Ink : On the wagon. 

Thanks so much for the visit today. 
Don't forget to see the rest of the teams creations!


  1. Oh Marybeth what a wonderful array of cards here using your over the top, adorable kit! Your little friends on their road trip is so cute with the little turtle trying to keep pace and that little sleepy mouse nestled in the floral frame is so darling too. What a delightful kit this was! Thank you so, so much for such sending so much sweetness in the mail. I loved every bit of this kit and can't wait to use the images and pieces I have left over.

  2. Such fun, wish I could do it all again. Your kit was the sweetest reminder of summer's joys. Thank you, thank you! We had the same idea with the wreath and napping mouse, so cute! And your vacationing critters in the van gives me ideas for my left overs. All lovely, as usual!
