12 Kits of Holidays - June Edition

I am so excited to share with you my post for the 12 Kits of the Holidays this month.  If you are not familiar with my blog - the "12 Kits" is a group of 12 designers.  We each take turns supplying the others with a "kit" of supplies.  On the last day of the month we all post what we made with the same package of ingredients.  It's always fun to see the different ways each of us approach the kit - sometimes our creations look similar and other times it's crazy how different they can look.  


I am excited because this was my turn to host the group!  I put together all sorts of goodies - paper from Basic Grey and stamped images from WPlus9.  I am always worried that what I consider "awesome goodies" the rest of the ladies might have a hard time with so I made lots of things to show how "user friendly" this kit was - well for me anyway.... for the other ladies you'll just have to visit them to find out!!!  

So here goes.....




 
 
Now it's time to see how the other ladies did with this kit.  Just click on their names to jump to their blogs.  There is a special treat this time too... an alumni guestie is joining in on the fun!

Kara said...

So many beautiful projects!! Love the treat box and the glittered reindeer!! Thanks you so much for another beautiful kit Jeanne! I had so much fun creating with it!!

Renee said...

Well of course you just put me to total shame. :(
What amazing creations...
all of them...
but then they always are!
You amaze me how you mix and pair papers and embellies...
I'm constantly in awe when I visit!
What a fabulous kit you sent...
so many incredible goodies...
that I AM going to use...
and try and change my procrastinating ways while I'm at it! ;)
But I probably wouldn't place a bet on me just in case you think of doing it...
I still have the eating habits of a 3 yr old so I'm not real good at change...
but I'm gonna try! :)

Jeanne, this was one fabulous kit! So many wonderful ingredients to play with too. Each and everyone of your cards is a masterpiece! So beautiful and very elegant. My favorite is your sweet reindeer card, he is just so cute and your coloring is just amazing. Your bow with that Christmas tree button is genius! So many amazing details to each one of your cards. A fun kit to play with too and I still have plenty of leftovers so I will be CAS'ing lots of what I see today. Thank you again for a wonderful Christmas kit!

Well, Jeanne--your creations with your kit are stunning, of course. Your kit was so amazing and chock full of beautiful and fun things. I made so many cards, and I feel like I just barely scratched the surface. I love everything you did with your own kit, and have a couple of 'aha' moments about some of the bits that had me stumped. I think that thing that stands out the most for me is your glittered reindeer, and now I am super happy that I saved mine.

Jeanne oh my each and every single one is just gorgeous! I am having one "wish I could have done that moment" after another. Your kit was full of the most fabulous pieces and I wish I could create like you. Thank you and fabulous cards!

The Paper Parade said...

First of all, Jeanne, this kit was so gorgeous and had SO much to work with! And of course you made the most gorgeous projects to show it off! Your coloring on Rudolph is superb...wow! Your ornament/treat box is so beautiful, it would look amazing on the tree :) And I think my favorite is the little girl card, loving that cool paper and the way you used the lace to accent it!

Sharron said...

Every one is just awesome, Jeanne! I love seeing what wonderful magic you did with all those gorgeous supplies. Your kit was so amazing and fun to use. I still have so many things left to use for CASing. Your card with the little reindeer and the heart die cut will be on the top of my list to play with! Thanks again for a fantastic month!!

Jinny Newlin said...

So much to love about each and every one of these beautiful creations, Jeanne! I just love all the Wplus9 goodies you all include. So fun to see them work to their full potential. Hugs!

Cathy Weber said...

First, a great big thank you for including me this month...it was such fun and I have really, really missed this group! Your cards are beautiful, love the Santa on that neat red frame with the red/cream ribbon. Your glittery deer is fabulous (I didn't have any glitter with me, but that is just what I had wanted to do too!) My favorite is the postal reindeer, I was not brave enough to attempt coloring him, but you did an amazing job with it. Thank you again for thinking of me!

Marybeth said...

First , a big thank you for another beautiful kit! I have so much left to make many more cards. You always send the best dies.
Love everything you have made here. Love your little girl card,can't wait to make that one . Love your box and the way you photographed it with all the jewels. Your reindeer card is gorgeous too! I see more detail on your deer for next time I color him. Gorgeous and thanks! Sorry I am late at commenting but I looked right away.

Getting a Kit from you, Jeanne, would be like Christmas morning!! You were the hostess extraordinaire with this Kit! I love setting aside time so that I can make the whole hop in one sitting and really see all the differences. I get such a kick out of it, too! And your own card creations, as ever, are the bomb!!

Fuzzy Slippers said...

I came over from Jessica's blog to see the hostess in action. :) LOVE this kit you put together- gonna have to get some of those stamps after seeing everyone's beautiful creations!

Christina said...

I am always in awe of your eye for beautiful design! Your cards are amazing this month, and the kit was such a joy to work with. I wish I could layer and embellish as fearlessly as you, but your kit gave me so many options to choose from and still keep things CAS. :) For the rest of the supplies I have left, I'll just be coming back here to CASE you! Thanks for such a wonderful box of goodies!

Oh my the Kitleader (kind of like the Ringleader at the circus ;)) shows us all how it's DONE! These are so amazing, Jeanne! Like jaw droppingly out of this world! I so enjoyed your kit this month and am sorry it took me so long to get around to commenting and thanking you. My fave images were that sweet little girl and the reindeer...which I saved! Love you awesome dove ornament/tag! The little silhouettes in the kit stole my heart, too...love your little girl at the tree card!

Amy Kolling said...
