The 12 Kits of Occasions Happy Howlidays!

It's the last day of the month!  You know what that means right? It's time for The 12 Kits of Occasions! The 12 kits is a group of 12 friends who love to make cards and papercraft.  Every month we take turns putting together a kit for the rest of the group.  We all receive the same things in the kit, and on the last day of the month we all reveal what we made with the kit.  It's fun to see how our designs are similar or different!

Our hostess this month is Kim Heggins from Cupcakes Cards and Kim.   Kim is a total sweetheart...she loves to going to concerts with her daughter, baking cupcakes, and Mickey Mouse!   That alone should tell you what a big heart she has!  

Here's a peek at the beautiful kit she put together for us... stamped images from Avery Elle and Lawn Fawn.. and some gorgeous papers!   No trixies in this kit.. (these are things I might have left over that I couldn't figure out what to do with).  I only have a few sheets of paper left over this time!

Here's the cards I made.. I added only a few die cuts from Pretty Pink Posh!

The pretty tree die is from Poppystamps - its' called Grand Pine Tree.

Layers of cuteness as only you can do sweet Jeanne!! They are all so darn cute. But my favorite is the last one with all of the crisp white and bright holiday green!!

Sharron said...

So much cuteness!! Your layering is awesome, as always! You definitely have a special talent when it comes to mixing patterns. Love all the bright colors but the last card in all white against the green is a really amazing design. I think it's my favorite!

Tracey McNeely said...

Jeanne just as I expected, you rocked the layers and the patterned papers! That first card with the Santa and the subway art and role call is so cute! I see you even snuck in a few extra layers, so festive!

Joyce said...

Gorgeous bunch of cards, Jeanne. I love how you used all the goodies Kim sent. And, your last card--with all that white is so very dramatic.

Oh my Jeanne...just love your use of my kit. Your are so much fun and so festive too! I just love all your incredible layering, just really made all the ingredients pop off the cards! Your first card is my favorite, just love how you used what was stamped on one piece of card stock, you are just too darn clever and creative!

Lindsey said...

Jeanne, I'm so amazed! I bet you used every last bit of this kit! Your green and white card is awesome, and I am so so happy that you used the words as a backdrop for your Santa. I wanted to use them in a similar way but totally forgot. It looks fantastic! Inspiring as always, Jeanne!

Cindy Beach said...

Jeanne,
Your way of mixing patterns and bright colors is masterful and unique! It never looks to busy, it's always just right!
The white on white is beautiful too. Love that pine tree die.
Your cards with this kit are fun fresh and so beautiful!
