12 Kits of Occasions: Baby Edition

Christmas has come and gone and the new year is almost here...time for our monthly 12 Kits of Occasions blog post and after waiting almost a year...it's finally my turn to play hostess.  Our "baby" month theme could not be more perfect for me, while I was waiting for our first grandson to be born I have been collecting all kinds of papers, stamps and dies for my kit with almost "zero" guilt involved.  I am sure I can use every item I bought later on when I make baby scrapbooks...right?  I am sticking to that rationale!  I started my kit off with digital patterned papers from Echo Park, Bundle of Joy boy/girl editions and built the rest of the kit from there.  As always, a complete list of kit ingredients can be found on our 12 Kits of Occasions blog under the tab titled 2014 Monthly Kit Ingredients.

I made seven cards this month...my favorite one up first:

I always tuck a gift card into nearly every baby card I make...the little envelopes in the kit are perfect for adding a gift card.  This is the boy version.

Of course I had to make a Baby Girl edition of the same card...loved that pink elephant!
Wouldn't this be a sweet mobile hanging over a baby's crib?

 This piece of patterned paper made it easy to complete a card...just add a die cut sentiment.

The Bundle of Joy digital elements kit has lots of cute little images that match the patterned paper.

I used my silhouette to turn a cute train image into a Print/Cut image...I could never have cut that train out so perfectly on my own!

I loved the sweet duck image and added a pinked rectangle cut from some of the matching patterned paper.

That's enough from me this month, but there are 12 other designers who have also made fun baby cards with our December kit.  This month, we have a special guest joining us...Lynn Mangan of The Mango Boys & Me.  I have always loved Lynn's cards and the fun blog stories she tells about those four boys of hers!  Please be sure to stop by her blog and see what she has made from my kit this month.

So many beautiful cards!! Thank you so much for such a jam packed kit! I'll never need another baby product again! The elements were so cute it made putting together the perfect card so quick and easy!!

Well isn't this the perfect theme for you! Love every detail, crazy about that sweet train running on washi tracks, and oh that darling yellow smoke! Happy New Year Cathy, know it will be a specially happy one for you!

Cathy your cards are all precious and how lovely and fun to be collecting sweet baby lines to use! Love all the adorable diecuts with these fabulous papers!

Lindsey said...

I'm not even a little bit surprised that every single one of these cards is completely fantastic! Your kit was incredible! Thank you so much! I totally wanted to use the bags for a gift card pocket, and now I know I must! My cousin is due any time now, and as soon as that baby comes and we find out the gender, I'll be CASing your cards. :) I had so much fun creating with this kit, and you sent so many darling things I was really tempted to make a scrapbook layout for my little ones. Their cuteness paired with the cuteness in this kit seemed like it would be a perfect match. :)

Lindsey said...

PS adore the mobile card! I'll be CASEing that one, too. :)

CAthy, you hit this one out of the park! So many sweet and adorable wee bits in your kit and you knew how to make each and everyone of them shine! I left all my leftovers out to CASE everyone today, and I can not wait to get started. I love all the beautiful paper too, so sweet and just perfect for all the ingredients you added. Thank you so much for the fabulous sweet baby kit! Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!
