The 12 Kits of Holidays January 2013

A new year and a new 12 Kits post! Did you notice anything different? Well this year we have a few changes...we are going to add some extra holidays into the mix! Don't you worry, there will still be plenty of Christmas cards (about every other month) but we will also have some other fun our first month... Valentine's Day cards with a kit from Joyce! Take a look at all the great supplies she sent...what fun Valentine's Day colors!

So I made 5 cards and I definitely could have made some more as well. The photos are not exactly the same :( I was having a lot of trouble with Flickr and Aviary when preparing this post, so this is what you get:

So what do you think? I think I like the bike card the best :) I loved all the different elements and the different companies the Joyce used in her kit!
I know a lot of you read about this last month, but we had two of our members leave the group, which was definitely tough, but we had two great new members, Kelly and Tracey! So I hope you'll welcome them, and all the rest of the "12 kitters" by checking out their cards for this month and leaving them some love on their blogs! So without further ado, check out everyone's blogs, here:


  1. Five absolutely fabulous how they show off your amazing talent!

  2. Jessica, each and everyone of your cards are so pretty and fun. I love all of the details you added to make them so incredible.
    My favorite of your bunch is your fourth card, those bicycles are so sweet and your fussy cut hugs & kisses so perfect!

  3. I just love them all! You clearly had a great time playing with this kit, and your cards scream 'JESSICA' all over them. So bright, playful and fun. Great job using the patterned papers, and I love what you did with those envelopes and the glittery XOXO border. So fun to cut that speech bubble out.

  4. You were a very busy girl Jessica! I love the way you mixed and matched the papers - I think the bicycle one is my fave! You added so many pretty extras and embellishments - the twine, pearls and a bit of sparkle on each of them!

  5. Love your cards!! Each card has such a cool little collage-y arrangemnt that I love!!

  6. Fabulous cards, Jessica!!
    And you got the bicycle paper too!!
    I'm so jealous...
    but I'm also loving some of that patchwork chevron on the last card too! :)
    Such fun cards...
    so many elements and little surprises to each one!

  7. so glad to see this series back! I just love those fun colours! I'm addicted to Polaroids right now!

  8. They are all fabulous, Jessica! All are so bright & cheerful--so you! Love how you used those adorable envelopes on several. The bicycle card is probably my favorite too--perfect combo of papers. I love how you used the speech bubble and cut out the sentiment!

  9. Jessica each of your cards are absolutely fabulous and so your style! Love your additions to the piestra die card, adore how you used the tree, the balloons sit so perfectly inside the camera die and beautiful fussy cutting on the sentiment! I have so much to CASE.

  10. Sorry I am late. These are wonderful Jessica! Sorry you had trouble with the pictures that can be so frustrating. But the good news is we can still see how gorgeous your cards are. Love the one with the bicycles on it… I did not have that paper. You showcased it beautifully!

  11. Jessica, here you go again! LOL You and your creativity takes these kits way beyond!! I love what you did with the polaroid die to frame the balloons and paired it with my favorite paper the chevrons! Sweet job this month!!

  12. Oh happiness! What fun combinations of the patterned papers and die the design on the hot air balloon card and the little heart banner across the Love You More sentiment. So glad to be joining this crew with you, Jessica!

  13. Finally getting to check out your awesome creations! You really knocked it out of the park, but then you always do. :) Your "hugs & kisses" card with the bikes has got to be my favorite, but the second card with the tree and XO border is close behind it. You always get the most out of all the little embellishments in these kits, and it's great inspiration for me to try using more of them!

  14. Oh my Jessica, they are all amazing! You sure did get a lot out of the kit!


I am thrilled that you have come to check out my cards :) I truly love getting comments, thank you so much for writing one to me!
