The 12 Kits of Occasions - December '14

I sincerely hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your families and wishing you a Happy New Year and all the best for 2015! We had a lovely Christmas and I was so blessed to have my whole family here and under the same roof at the same time. I don't know why it was easier to gather everyone together for a selfie than the usual posed family photo, but here it is the McNeely family selfie!



Now it is time for December edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions and the last kit of 2014!





Cathy was our hostess this month and she sent us the most fabulous baby kit full of papers and embellishments for both boys and girls! I have six cards to share with you today but I could have kept going, I have enough to make lots more cards, which is good as I usually want to CASE cards created by the rest of the team. We often joke that the kits are self assembling but honestly this one was. The ideas just kept flowing. 

Thank you Cathy for the fantastic kit!

Hello - such cute ideas!
Are your kits for sale, or is this more a kind of membership club where everyone works with a special kit prepared by one of the members each month?

Love all of your cards. What a fun bunch. They must be self assembling, because couple of mine are similar to yours--programmed at the factory, perhaps? And, fantastic family selfie.

Jeanne J said...

Beautiful family photo - it's going to be a wonderful 2015 starting off like that! You have a beautiful family! I can't believe you made so many cards. I love your style... the train is AMAZING! My fave card here because it is so you... so clean... isn't missing a single thing. That white space still scares me. Love the color coodinating too - the giraffe with the yellow paper, and the SHAKER!!!! Ok so I love them ALL! Can you blame me?

Making a shaker card behind the word die? Genius! I wish I had thought of that! There are so many things to love in this kit this month. The owl card is adorable :) And the train card with the enamel dot smoke? I just smile when I see it :)
