It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year - July '15

Can you believe we are half way through 2015?
Oh my goodness where does the time go.



It is Christmas is July and today we are celebrating the most wonderful time of the year at the 12 Kits of Occasions! Cathy Weber of Empty Nest Crafter was our hostess this month and what a fabulous kit she put together for the team. Loaded with gorgeous papers and die cuts and trinkets. I had to have my cards and post done a week ahead of time or else I don't think I would have had time to do it as the move got closer. I was able to make four cards this month and once I have my new craft room set up I will be able to go back and CASE the rest of the team.








Here is the last window shot from this house, I will have to figure out a new spot at the new house...

Gorgeous collection of cards Tracey and I will say that I will miss your beautiful window shot but I know you will find a new perfect place in your new home. I love your deer card, so stunning to have him jumping on the red, a magnificent look! Fabulous use of Cathy's patterned paper too, love that you made the beautiful paper shine.

Barb Ghig said...

As always, you've done an amazing job with the kit, Tracey! I love how you paired these pretty papers and die cuts so that each card is unique!
I'm looking forward to seeing your new 'set up' ~ Best wishes for a really smooth transition into your new home :)

Cathy Weber said...

I really will miss that window shot too! I can't believe you found the time to make four cards...love the deer silhouette in front of the big red circle...also the two Christmas tree cards looked so elegant...especially with the die cut sentiment on the large tree card. I hope the move is going well...good luck in your new home!

I imagine that you're starting to get things in order at your new home. I just know that you'll take plenty of breaks in order to keep your strength up and avoid YKWs! You've made a lovely quartet of cards with this kit, Tracey. That leaping stag is amazing, and I do love all those darker patterned papers that were in the kit. Very sweet cards. Thinking of you...Bev

Sharron said...

Beautiful job with Cathy's kit, Tracey! Gosh, you were even able to get four cards done with all the moving pressures! Love all your designs! The tree is gorgeous with that background paper and the white 'merry christmas'. And the black & red against the plaid looks awesome.

Maria said...

A fabulous collection of Christmas cards, Tracey! Looks like you had lots of fun with the kit! Each card is full of Christmas joy!:-)

Joyce said...

Fantastic line up of cards, Tracey. I cannot believe you were able to do this much with all the packing and moving also. Love them all--I think my favorite is the leaping deer.

Nora N. said...

Melody said...

So rich and rustic, Tracey! Love this month's kit with all the darker colors. Good bye old window, can't wait to see your new house! (Virtually of course!)

Jeanne J said...

Thinking of you and hope you are doing well. I know you have so much going on right now and still FOUR beautiful cards for us today! My favorite is the reindeer silhouette on the red circle - really striking! Your cards are beautiful! Seeing more layers than usual Tracey! I love it!!

Thinking of you while you move... There will be a new window for sure! Who knows, maybe you'll be spoilt for choice?? 😉Have to say that these create such a stunning set, and I cannot pick a favourite among them! A thoughtful commenter before me referred to your cards as being rich and rustic! Such a perfect description! These twelve kits always get me so inspired! Each of you talented gals blow me away.

Lisa said...

These are all simply fabulous Tracey!! I always loved seeing them all lined up on your window. Looking forward to that new spot!! Hope everything is going well with the move and the unpacking ~ HUGS!

Fabulous cards Tracey. I have been trying to email you regarding the CASE challenge we have you down for at TO but my emails keep getting returned. Perhaps you could email me at sandiesandie16@gmail.com so we could chat about it as I like to give the team a month to prepare. Thanks Tracey xx
