The 12 Kits of Occasions - December



Happy New Year!

It's time for the December 12 Kits of Occasion's post! New Mama Jessica is our hostess this month and what an incredible kit she sent out! Full of fantastic papers, die cuts and images. I could have just kept on going, but I know I will want to CASE the other girls, I always do.  Jessica is offering a giveaway this month.  She has a set of the Christmas Word Dies from Paper Smooches.  All you need to do is leave a comment on any or all the blogs for your chance!  Also don't forget to take at look at who will be Sharron's Guest Designer for January!

I have taken a bit of a blogging break this week and focused on family. It has been busy with one having strep throat and the other needing clothes suitable for the arctic to head back to school with and hubby off work for three weeks. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year! Wishing you all good health and happiness in 2014!

Now on to the fun stuff!


Love this Winter Bunny, a hazard of the 12 Kits is that you usually end up shopping after you get your kit. I know that this bunny and die are coming home to me. I topped the snowbank, the scarf and the bunnies ear with my Wink of Stella brush.

Tracey, these are all adorable! How Fun!

Sorry to hear about your sick kidlet...that's no fun.

I sit here commenting on blogs and actually don't have a blog post scheduled for any day except Wednesday...that's so unlike me. I've been spending quality time napping and playing board games with the kids, it's been a ton of fun:)

Cathy Weber said...

Oh Tracey...these are so good! I love all of them lined up on your window sill...my favorite is the one with the cute Christmas tree and snowman... love how you cut out the tree and the cute snowman next to it. I also really love your shading on the Christmas trees...so cute to add that little ribbon tab. Hope your daughter is all well now...strep is no fun, especially when there is so much delicious food around to eat!

Marisa said...

Joyce said...

Well, you pulled off a fabulous bunch of cards. I am constantly amazed at what you can do under pressure. I love them all, but have to admit to a slight favoritism with the owl and the bunny. Super way to use all the patterned papers, too.

Bonnie said...

Looks like you've had a lot of fun, Tracey! And a good start on next year's Christmas cards!

Lindsey said...

Love 'em! Great job, Tracey. Hope you have a fabulous new year.

Happy New Year!!

Tracey....I love it, we have twin cards with our sweet little snowmen, I love it when this happens! My favorite card of yours is your first card...love the bright red scarf flying in the wind while riding down the hill on her sled. All of your cards are amazing and as always, I love how you wait til the end and have so many challenges to enter, need to remember that for next month. Wishing Brooklyn better days and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Leigh Penner said...

These are all so lovely, Tracey! Great job with the kit and the sketches!
Wishing you a wonderful 2014, my friend!

Sharron said...

Fabulous collection, Tracey! Love what you did with the kit. Your trees in bright green are stunning and how wonderful to add that little ribbon tag. My favorite is the Love Will Keep Us Warm! All that snowy white is perfect for your sweet snowman! Hope your daughter is feeling better. A very happy New Year to all of you!

Greta said...

Terrific makes, Tracey! That green one is such a delicious assortment of bright greens!! I hope you are enjoying New Year's Eve!! Hugs, Darnell

Kelly S. said...

I love the bunny and owl cards...maybe 'cause I picked the same paper to use with those images, giggle! Your snowman card is absolutely adorable with the little vintage tree all cut out. The trees are so bright and vibrant with that Kelly green paper :) Don't you just love lining them up in a row at the end? I always love to see how coordinated they look (and I manage to feel quite accomplished too :)!

Janis said...

LOVE these cards you made for this kit. They are all so clean, simple, and cheery.

The Paper Parade said...

Oh man Tracey, there is just oodles and oodles of cuteness in your cards!!! I have to say that I am in LOVE with the snowman/tree card :) That is such a great pairing and sooo darn adorable! The owl is super sweet, love the paper choices, and you're right the bunny is so great, I'm glad that you decided to get him!!

Amy Kolling said...

I think I will miss our late night chats the most about whether or not we've got our kit cards done or not! haha I know we will have many more since I will be joining a group with you soon! I love all your cards lined up for me to see....I know the one for me to CASE is the sleigh/bunny.....that layout is fabulous and I love that you layered it onto the chevron "sky". Happy New Year friend!!! This is not goodbye! :)

Christina said...

You always choose just the right elements from the kit for your CAS designs. The sledding bunny with the chevron sky is adorable, and I love the poinsettia off the edge on your second card. Your clean approach with the snowman and tree is so pretty and definitely needs CASEing, and the owl with his red scarf looks fantastic. Inspiring designs, as always!

Michelle said...

Tracey, I know I am very late, but hope all is well with your family! Love these cards. Especially the owl...how adorable!
