The 12 Kits of Occasions - November '13




It's the last day of the month and that mean time for this month's edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions. Thank you and welcome to all of the newcomers on our blogFacebook and  Pinterest page!

Kelly was our hostess this month and she sent us all an amazing kit full of fabulous goodies.  I still have so much left I could do another 6 projects easily. An ultra trendy kit with fantastic papers and embellishments.  Here is what I have made so far.


I think this first one is my favourite.

For this card I used my Lil' Inker Stitched Mats but by doing three cuts around my sentiment I was able to customize the frame to fit the sentiment. It was easy to do by used the stitched indent on the first die cut--the die slipped right in. This one is for the the current CAS(e) this Sketch #55.

Of course I had to use the new Lil' Inker On the Diagonal Die. Think I am on a
new kick now! LOL

Marisa said...

I just love that paper series and you have showcased it wonderfully. Great set of cards :)

Cathy Weber said...

I feel like a total dummy...didn't even think to cut up that little Christmas light garland. What was I thinking? It looks so fabulous decked out on your chalkboard tree! My favorite is the one with the diagonal die from Lil Inker...such a great way to use some of the beautiful patterned papers Kelly sent us!

Jen said...

So many wonderful holiday cards! I love every one!

Bobby said...

I've been seeing a lot of that pen sketched tree and I love what you did with it. I also love the
CAS Happy Holidays one. But then they're all so good I hate to pick.

Michelle said...

Tracey! I came by to see what you created for FMS and...HOLY COW!!! I can't believe you created all these cards and tag with a kit!!! AMAZING!!

Linda Suarez said...

All of your cards are gorgeous! Although I may be a bit partial to the one for Freshly Made Sketches. ;-) Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Kim Heggins said...

Your cards are amazing Tracey and you have waiting til the last minute to get them done on your side, using new dies and entering in challenges, so smart of you. Your tag is just too darn cute and I love that you decorated your tree with the lights, I was so stumped on what to do and your totally nailed it. Fabulous, simply fabulous!

Greta said...

Wow--so much inspiration here, Tracey! Love all your work!

Barb Ghig said...

Narelle Farrugia said...

Oh Tracey you've created such lovely cards! I just love the gorgeous colours you've used for your Freshly Made Sketches card! Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!

Kelly S. said...

Ohhhh so preetttty! I just love the way you used the pen and ink tree with the little festive lights die, sooo beautiful!! The candy cane background is perfect. I love how simply elegant the white snowflake background with the banner sentiment and holly looks! The opera tag is right at home with that festive paper. And I adore the added bow to the holly jolly chalkboard tag!! Just stunning uses of the kit, Tracey! :)XO

Amy Kolling said...

Did you make all of these after we chatted? I barely got 3 done and was pooped!!! My favorite is that first one....love how that black tag really stands out against that pattern paper! If I had to choose another....it would be how you used more patterns with the On the Diagonal die! Love this idea!!! I so enjoy our monthly chats as we feverishly work on our projects the night before! :) Happy Holidays Tracey!!!!

Linda said...

Tracey, such lovely cards. I think the first one is my favorite too, but I like the second one and the tree on the black is absolutely gorgeous.

mypapercraftworld said...

What fantastic projects, Tracey ... such wonderful inspiration! Anita :)

The Paper Parade said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Tracey! I just love the merry and bright card, it is stunning and I love the way you layered the patterned paper at an angle. Coming in at a close second in the grey snowflake card, it looks so classic and beautiful!

Sharron said...

Gosh, Tracey--every one is just perfect! Love how you used the WMS tag with patterned paper--something I wouldn't have thought of and yours looks gorgeous. And I should have used by LI diagonal die--such a fabulous way to showcase the patterns. Your last card is just amazing. LOVE the simplicity of the design and the single snowflake!

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, these are all wonderful!

Jinny Newlin said...

So much to love in one, little post! LOVE! TFS!

Barbara Murphy said...

Every month you all blow me away with your kit creations. The diecuts are my faves I think. You manage to find such original uses for them every month! Beautiful cards Tracey...and so much holiday inspiration!

Katie Ann Brooks said...

soooooo much fabulousness here! I love everyone one of these, especially the chalkboard stuff! You rock girly! Hope to be lucky enough to meet you one day!

Joyce said...

Good grief. When you get cranking, you are unstoppable. So many fantastic cards and ideas. Now I am wishing I had saved a little something for casing. I'm still not sure how you made that smaller stitched rectangle, but it is a brilliant idea however it works.

Lyndal said...

F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.!!!

Jingle said...

Holy awesome cards, Batman!!! These are all fantastic! Wow! Thanks so much for playing along with us over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Boy, I could have sworn I left a comment on all your gorgeous 12 Kits cards, Tracey! ?? Well, don't know what happened there, but I'm popping back to congratulate you on being the Queen at FMS for the card you entered there!! Yippee!! Hugs, Darnell

Lindsey said...

Oh, WOW! I love, love, LOVE all your cards/tags with this kit. Seriously love!

Christina said...

Beautifully done, as always! It will be hard for me not to just recreate your first card exactly as it is--it's just perfect! I love all of the white with the crisp red frame and holly accent on the second card, and you've rocked the angles on the third one! The candy stripes work perfectly behind the chalkboard tree with the simple embellishments, and I'm loving the use of the sketch on your last card. All that and a gorgeous little tag, too! Such an inspiration!

IamUniquelyImperfect said...
