12 Kits of Occasions August 2013

 
 
Hi all! Our kit this month came from Amy and it was another Christmas themed kit (love those :) She sent some cool supplies for us to try out, and I didn't own any of them, so that made it a lot of fun! She sent two tiny cards, too, with tiny envelopes so that was fun to change it up (the second and third card are the small cards). Check out what I made here:

So my favorite of the bunch is the first one or the first mini card. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what everyone else created with their supplies, though! So why don't you hop along with me? There is a prize up for grabs along the way! Check out the 12 Kits blog for more details.

  11. These are FANTASTIC, Jessica! Love how you combined all the patterned papers. You did amazing things with the stripes! Great use of those little red banners too! i couldn't find just the right place for that tag with the green and I love how you used it for your mini card--really cute design!

  16. Look at all of this festive loveliness! The burlap one may be my favorite, love the whole layout and how you paired it with the fancy striped paper. Reminds me of something that you would see at an old fashioned store :) The mini wreath card is darling with that silver snowflake (which I hoarded!) and the cut out sentiment. The layered tags on the last look so sweet together that way!

  17. You always do such a beautiful job with the kits! I especially love your mini cards and how you split the banner to use on both. Your last card is probably my favorite, though. How smart to cut out the sentiments and layer them over the tags! I will definitely be trying that.

  18. I just love to see what you make with these kits! Your first card is just amazing....I love all the vertical stripes and pattern pairings. The best part is the frame that is turned vertical too! I thought the mini cards were a fun little addition to the kit.....you turned them into mini works of art! Thanks so much Jessica for working your magic!!!
