The 12 Kits of Holidays February 2013

Yay! Its the most wonderful time of the month! Time for my 12 Kits of Holidays post :) This month Renee sent us a kit JAM PACKED with supplies! Seriously, I could have made about 10 more cards! I think she sent us every pattern in the paper pack. It was so fun trying to choose what to use.
Here's a picture, compliments of Kara, that shows you the beautiful array of supplies that we received in our kit:
 Here are the cards that I created this month:

So my favorites are the first card and the reindeer card, what about you? I loved the vintage feel of the kit this month, and the fact that some of the sentiments said "ya'll!!" This is something I still sometimes say, being from Florida, and I can definitely picture Renee saying it :)
Now I can't wait to hop around and see what everyone else made, and you can too!

Paper Smooches Sparks Cool Shades Feb. 2013

Paper Smooches Sparks Cool Shades Feb. 2013

Notice any new dies?? Oh yeah, I got my Paper Smooches die order! I used three different dies on this card for the PSS Cool shades challenge :)  The Hot Spots Small Set 1 is the cool star die on the left side, the clipboards is the clipboard binder on top, and isn't the scallop notebook die adorable? I used the "I Heart Art" set because I knew I wanted to incorporate the colors into the paint splats :) The heart and arrow are both from SU punches. The patterned paper is PTI, and so is the cardstock. Here is the color story we were given for this month:

You have a whole week to play along for an awesome prize. Check it out here. Now I know you want to see what the other DT gals created, right? Check out their creations here:

Cloudwplus9 Blog Hop Feb. 2013

Cloudwplus9 Feb. 2013
Due to a blizzard this weekend, I was able to get some extra crafty time in! So I decided to play along with the Cloudwplus9 blog hop that's going on. Here is the inspiration photo that we were given this month:

I was inspired by the brown bags (I used burlap instead for some texture) the items popping out of the bags (that's why I used the pocket with the letters and heart popping out) and the patterned background (hence my chevron background). This was a great inspiration photo and was fun to create the card :) The stamps are from wplus9, the paper is Studio Calico and My Mind's Eye, the twine is from the Twinery and the burlap is from 7Gypsies.

Paper Smooches Sparks Trend Watch February 2013

Paper Smooches Sparks Trend Watch Feb. 2013
Paper Smooches time! This month's trend watch challenge was to use polka, huh? Who doesn't love polka dots? So I used the cute newer set "Bee Mine". The polka dot paper is from PTI, and so is the polka dot ribbon. The scallop punch is from SU. The heart punch I used is also from SU.

Did you guys see all the awesome new dies and stamps that Kim came out with the other day! I have a huge order I'm going to be placing tomorrow, I can't wait to get my hands on those dies! You have a week to play along with this challenge, and you could win a gift certificate to get some of your own dies, so I hope that you'll join in :) Happy Monday!
