The 12 Kits of Occasions - It's Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by! Today I'm posting for The 12 Kits of Occasions. Not familiar with The 12 Kits of Occasions? We're a group of 12 friends who all love to paper craft. Every month we take turns making a kit for the rest of the group. We all receive the same kit with the same items. On the last day of the month we reveal what we each made with the kit. It's fun to see how we used the product in different ways. Sometimes the projects are similar and sometimes they are very different. 
Our hostess for November is Tracey McNeely from In My Creative Opinion. I love Tracey's clean style and seamless way of putting her cards together. She has a great style that will make you smile. Her lovely kit included pretty papers, and lots of cute images with lots of holiday critters! You can see a complete list of ingredients on The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog.

Normally we post on the last day of the month, but due to some delivery delays we decided to post the November kit a little later to give the team more time to play!

There were no tricks - really the only thing I had left when I was done playing with the twine. Maybe Tracey's clean style is rubbing off on me? Here's what I made..

I was excited to get 5 cards from this kit! Want to see what the rest of the team made? Click here to head on over to The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog where you'll see a sample from each of the designers and get links to their blogs!

All cards finished size 4.25 x 5.5"

Love seeing how you mixed all of those fabulous patterned papers! They are all so festive. Your purple moose is especially adorable! Of course I'm partial to the designs with pups--my favorite part of the kit. Each of yours is precious!

Adorable! All your cards are over the top, amazing Jeanne! That purple moose is so out of the box and as cute as ever. I wish my mind did better thinking outside of the box. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
