12 Kits of Occasions...Halloween!

It's the last day of the month which means it's time for another 12 Kits of Occasions reveal!  This month our hostess was the lovely Kim Heggins, and she created a kit for her favorite holiday...Halloween!  It was just filled with TREATS, all lovingly packaged in little kraft bags sealed with washi tape...and even a mini slider box filled with ribbon and twine!


What caught my eye first was the adorable Haunted Hill die cut scene from Impression Obsession.  And OH the papers from Pebbles "Trick or Treat" Collection, they are so awesome!!


Thought it went perfectly with this sentiment from Cicely at Halloween by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Kim sent us that sentiment, but I decided to make a "moon" and so cut patterned paper with a circle nestie and then stamped the sentiment myself.  Had to make my teeny cat's eyes green, TOO!


Another really fun die cut, a "Trick or Treat" filled with some images from an adorable set called "Halloween Hello" by Stampin Up.  


Then it was time for tags!  Love this sweet little spider (although I think he can be a bat, too ;) from "Halloween Treats and Sweets" by Papertrey Ink and a border spider web die cut by Cottage Cutz.  I cut it in two and then layered the 2 pieces next to each other.  The sentiment is from Midnight Feast by Waltzingmouse Stamps.


 I think the last  is my fave project of the month, this scaredy cat made by Lucy, cut with Kim's Silhouette (need one of those)!!  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "Spooky Sweets II."


I covered my black cat with flock!  A well-placed orange sequin on the back of the die cut made for a perfect evil eye :)!!


Thanks SO much to Kim for such an amazing kit!  I will definitely try to revisit it this month since there is so much more to use and still some time left until Halloween!  To see the full supply list for any of the kits (starting from July 2013 and on), you can go to the "Monthly Kit Supplies" button on the 12 Kits Blog HERE.

Kelly I love your flocked kitty! That cat die cut is fabulous - makes me want a cameo! Lol! Your tags and cards are wonderful as always! Love the moon you created on the first card with the wonderful WMS poem! Always a favorite every year at Halloween!

I can't believe I didn't think to flock that scarey cat ~ you're a genius! That and then putting that orange sequin "just so" - amazing, Kelly!! I also love the green eyes on the cat in the graveyard! Your unique circle card and tags are so fun! Thank you for all the inspired ways I can use my remaining delicious ingredients! Hugs, Darnell

I love the flocked black cat! Great idea! Love the tags you made and I have lots left to make some tags. Beautiful and spooky creations here Kelly! What a fun kit!

Cathy Weber said...

I can not believe how many cute ideas you had that never occurred to me Kelly! Love the circles within the Trick or Treat die cut and love those green eyes on the cat and gold on the bat. Flocking on the cat? I thought I was way out with glitter, but flocking is so much better! Just like cat's fur. Love what you have done and I am so happy to be back.

So many fabulous ideas and wonderful cards. I love your big orange moon, and the eyes you put on your cat and bat. So very clever and fun. Love your round card with the big trick or treat die cut--and am feeling pretty clever that I used the same sentiment with that one--love your crazy skull, too. Finally, your tags are both terrific.

Sharron said...

OMG, love what you did with the kit! Your flocked cat is just perfection!! The sequin eye was a wonderful idea! Your scene with the big orange moon and the ghost paper is fabulous. Love the eyes on the bat & cat! Fun way to use the Trick or Trick die cut too. And I adore your spooky tag with the giant spider!

Kelly I am in love with all of your projects! Your first card is so amazing, of course the ghosts make a perfect backdrop for the graveyard and the glowing windows and glowing eyes. Love your circle card and both of your tags are fantastic!

Christina said...

What fantastic creations, Kelly! Your first card is so awesome with the silhouette scene and big orange moon. Love that you used the ghost paper for the background. Your circle card is so colorful and fun, and your tags are adorable. I especially love the flock you added to the cat.
