Card Kits aren't too bad!

My friend Carmen, aka ScrapperDelighted, sent me a Basic Grey card kit a few months ago. I was rather upset with her for it since I would only be able to make one of each card *okie is so obsessive about making multiples* and told her I would never be able to use it. She told me then I could just look at it! HOW RUDE IS SHE??

Well one night I was wanting to make something to use up my stash and I decided to buck up and do the card kit. I was really pleasantly surprised! I enjoyed making the cards and even though there is only one of each I figured I could use them as my own personal stash or give them to my boss for our stash at the office.

The kit included pretty much everything. I think I did add a few embellies here and there but for the most part it is all from the kit.

Here are the pictures of the cards.


  1. Pretty darned cute! I think you did a great job!

  2. I actually have 4 different of these from different collections! I love them... I bought them wholesale thinking I was going to sell them and I haven't put them up for sale! I LOVE THEM!!! I have the Eerie, Wisteria, Marraket and nook and pantry!!! Beautiful collections!!!

  3. Great cards Okie, I have a card kit pack in my drawer and haven't taken it out to try it yet. Maybe after seeing these I will TFS

  4. Very Cool kit! You did a great job, you did the card kits proud!

  5. Shame on you for being rude to Carmen! ;) Just kidding. I actually am the same way. I sell cards for missions for my church so I usually make 8 of one design or the packaging is too difficult! These turned out great!

  6. I feel the same way. If I use the kit, it's gone! It's got to be a paper user disease! LOL!

    My card kit from the LSS is still in the package because I can't decide which embellishments to use.

    If I put the ribbon on one card, what if I need it on another one?

    Guess I'll have to bit the bullet and just DO IT!

    Quit picking on Carmen (Thang II) or she's going to quit sending you goodies!

  7. WOW! These look Great Okie! My sister likes to buy these types of kits too... I told her she was CRAZY! Cause you can just make your own.. but I have to admit... I really Like how these turned out... For a kit and all! LOL I may think my sister is on to something.... But don't tell her I said that! :o)

  8. Those kits are so cute. And, Linda's right so watch it!!!
