12 Kits of Occasions - November '16

Good morning!  I'm absolutely delighted to be able to share my November 12 Kits of Occasions projects with you.  Kim (from Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim) sent the cutest, most cheerful kit to us, and I can't help but smile every time I look at it.  I think I love it a little extra because the colors are the same colors as our Christmas decorations. :) The stamps she used are darling, and I was extra excited to see Lawn Fawn's Happy Howlidays since it sold out so quickly during Simon Says Stamp's Stampbember event.  I had SO much fun creating with this kit and made both cards and tags.  First up...the cards.
My husband thought this Santa was great.  I think the name of this Avery Elle stamp set - Oh What Fun - is absolutely perfect.  Who doesn't have fun trying to catch snowflakes?  And I was happy to be able to use a rejected watercolor panel that I've had sitting around since July.  "Don't lose it. Re-use it." ...my Paw Patrol loving kiddos would be so proud. :) 
 
I really loved the papers Kim sent.  I can't believe I didn't use more of them!  But they did make an appearance on the next two cards.  On this one I used Concord & 9th's Joy stamps and die.  These super fun candy dots were also part of the kit.  I had to hide them from my kiddos because they looked good enough to eat. 
Okay, I love this shaker card.  So simple, but I can't get over how cute this dog is.  I paired him with my NBUS (never-been-used-shtuff) Clearly Besotted Window die and a sentiment from a retired Clearly Besotted set called In Stitches: Christmas. 
Our fabulous 12 Kitter Tracey put together the most incredible 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.  Sadly my whole family got hit with the most vicious stomach bug this month, and I haven't been able to play along very much, so I made sure to make a few tags when I was creating with this kit.
My first tag is a CASE of my friend Leigh Penner (love her!) from Day 22 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  It uses this super cute car from Avery Elle's Dashing stamp set.
My next tag is a case of Lindsey's tag on Day 6.  I loved the blue behind her cute penguin, and I may or may not have been partial to her name. :)
My final tag uses Lawn Fawn's Happy Howlidays again and is a case of Samantha Mann's Tag on Day 15 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I adored her tag, so I didn't change much, and I was pretty happy to be able to pull out PTI's Journal Card 5 die.
And one last shot of them all together...my personal favorite way to look at them.  In fact, I love this view so much that they are still sitting like this. :)  I cannot wait to see what the other ladies made with their kit.  I'm sure it will be amazing.  Make sure you head to the 12 Kits of Occasions, so you can see their projects as well.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
