12 Kits of Christmas November Edition

Are you ready for another edition of the 12 Kits of Christmas? We are a group of 12 card makers / designers. Every month one of us puts together a package of supplies to mail to the other 11 members. We all receive the same supplies and post our creations on the last day of the month. It is always interesting to see the different ways we will all use the same products!   Well the hostess with the mostest this month was... gulp... me!!! 
I put together a kit with lots of bright colors (I hope that didn't throw the ladies for a loop!) , Serendipity Stamps images, classic Basic Grey Papers, and die cuts and ribbon so the gals could go crazy and pile it on!  Serendipity is also providing a little blog candy this hop!  If you like the ornament die image you will be seeing be sure to leave a comment!  One lucky winner from one of the blogs (we don't know which one) will receive the ornament stamp die set!  Mary (the owner of Serendipity has also agreed to have a special sale just for us!  TODAY 11-30-12  ONLY get 20% off all Christmas items in the store - Better Hurry! 
Ok down to business - I'm going to keep it short so you can see what I came up with and still give you plenty of time to visit the other ladies.

Love your kit and cards.

Lisa M said...

GOOD GRIEF! the colors just scream AWESOME at me. I love them Jeanne, they're all just gorgeous, but I'm gonna have to jump up and down and say, "I LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOVE that deer card!"

Marybeth said...

I knew these were going to be gorgeous, you did not disappoint! As always love your bows and the bling. I love how our deer cards are very similar. The papers in this kit are stunning and love the way you used them. Your ornament card is beautiful with the die and extra bling. Not sure how you got your ribbon on that one to lay so perfectly. Thank you again for such a fun kit! I loved working with it.

Kim said...

Jeanne, so classy and very elegant...love them all but I knew I would before I even saw your creations. Thank you so much for the amazing kit and for all of the goodies. So happy to have leftovers too. Your bows are so sweet and so pretty and add so much to each one of your cards. Thank you again for all of the time you put into making this one amazing kit.

Cathy Weber said...

I think my comment diappeared. Here it comes again...beautiful kit you sent us this month...so much to use I didn't know where to start. Your card are gorgeous, love all the doilies, plaid paper, lace and bow on the first one. Love the shading you did around the poinsettia to really set them off. You know I love the deer card, so smart to put them within the circular die cut and to have the sentiment suspended by the strings. Great cards, thanks so much!

Tracey McNeely said...

Jeanne, every one of your cards is just SPECTACULAR! And it was such fun to see how you used your supplies. Love the beautiful use of paper, layering and those gorgeous die cuts and bows. Your kit was positively amazing and you were so generous to include so much. I love having leftovers! Thank you so very much for a wonderful month!

Kelly S. said...

So the girls are saying that you spoiled us this go around! I think they are right...your kit was SO fantastic, Jeanne! I had so much fun with it and it made it even more fun to hop around today. So much inspiration for the "leftovers" in the box! I wasn't sure how to use the die cut circle, and now I am smacking my head after looking at your lovely reindeer card! Love how you layered all of the pieces for the ornament card...although your bow makes my "masterpiece" seem wilty, LOL! I'll keep trying, the bug has bit me now! BEAUTIFUL coloring on the poinsettia images. Thanks SO much for everything!

Amy McCue said...

Wow, I am having so much fun seeing what everyone did with this kit! Loving the warm plaid and beautiful traditional designs mixed in with the gorgeous ribbon!

Lea L. said...

What beautiful cards!! That kit is fabulous!!

Amy Kolling said...

Jeanne....firstly, thank you. This was such a wonderful kit...it's beyond words gorgeous! I enjoyed using things I that I've never seen or used before. Those die cuts were such beauties....I'm glad I saved them because now I can CASE the group! Now....THOSE BOWS.....HOLY MOLY! I've never seen such PERFECT bows in my whole life! There is not a crinkle in there whatsoever! Card #2 is by far my favorite because it uses so many of my favs from the kit. The velvet ribbon, the colorful seam binding, and that bold paper! But then you have that bow....have you done a tutorial on how to make one? I'd love to see it if you have! Thank you again so much for this kit. Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!

Suzanne said...

Jeanne, I bow in awe of you! The kit you put together left me shaking in my boots and I have had no greater pleasure than I've had seeing all of the truly fantastic things everyone has made with it. I LOVE the deer inside the rounded diecut. LOVE. And I love the look of the blue seam binding and your coloring. Love it all and I can't thank you enough!

Christina said...

I just knew you'd WOW me with this kit! The colors and patterns are gorgeous, and the way you mix and match them is incredible. I especially adore the gold ornament layered over the turquoise doily, and I'm so glad I saved the deer trio and frame die cut to CASE your last card. Thanks so much for this wonderful kit!
