The 12 Kits of Occasions - November '14 and RetroSketches #143



It's that time again, the 12 Kits of Occasions November edition, or in the case this month Holiday Edition!  Kim Heggins of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim  was our hostess this month and she sent us all a kit filled to the brim with Santa inspired goodies. Isn't timing everything?  Lots to see today from all the girls so lets get started...

I layered the two snowbanks with foam tape.

Kim sent us the cutest Santa sleigh that she cut with her Silhouette Cameo.

For my next card I used this week's and RetroSketches sketch #143.
Kim sent us the Santa embossed in red.

The great big Santa is the star of the show for me. I love everything about this image.

Of course I could not resist making another tag. The metal rimmed tag came with our kits, ready made.

It's especially fun to see what you made this month, Tracey ... Kim put part of the kit together at the Lake House, so seeing it turned into such wonderful cards is fabulous! I especially love the Lucy-cut sleigh ... it's so bold and striking! Anita :)

Barb Ghig said...

Each and every card is just beautiful and I love your charming tag, Tracey! You did an amazing job on this kit!

Jeanne J said...

I couldn't wait to see what you would do with the little bunny - he looks fab on the embossed hills. And so smart to use your little tag. I thought it was so pretty and was trying to think of how to sneak it into my designs as well. Should have known that the Queen of Tags would know EXACTLY what to do!! I spy some new dies here too - been scoping out that scallop matt myself!

maria f. said...

"peace, love and sparkly stuff". How great is that sentiment!!!

Sharron said...

These are all just awesome, Tracey! And how much fun to see your tag using the little one Kim enclosed. Love your hills cut from the embossed cardstock--perfect scene with the bunny. Glad to see your great design with the sleigh too. I still have mine! And your Santa designs are wonderful. I think those images were the scene stealers of the kits--so very wonderful!

cm said...

A gallery of fabulous cards, Tracey; you've infused Kim's marvelous kit with your amazing creativity with results that are swoon-inducing. The Santa: crushing over that! And your tag...oh my! Love 'em all, my friend!
Hugs~c

Kelly S. said...

EEK, I just love what you did with the fun sparkly Christmas tree tag, so CUTE! Your bunny is so sweet sledding on the embossed hills...perfect with the grey snowflake paper. And your Santa with the silvery believe is pure Christmas! Awesome card set as always, Tracey!

Lindsey said...

Love, love, love them all. And I'm pretty sure I will be CASEing the middle two exactly because I have all the supplies left...so happy about that! :) You are seriously the best!
