12 Kits of Occasions - THE FINALE

Hello, friends!  The end of the month (and year! Can you believe it?!) is upon us, which means I get to share with you my projects for The 12 Kits of Occasions. When I received Marcia's fabulous kit in the mail I thought it was the most brilliant December kit ever and immediately wanted to sit down to create with it.  I LOVED her "Tags of Christmas" theme!  Making homemade tags is my favorite Christmas craft.  I know for many of you Christmas has passed, but I hope that my projects can still bring a smile and maybe even inspire you for some upcoming Valentine tags. :)
Marcia made everything so easy, and these tags came together in a snap.  I'll just let the photos do the talking. (If you are wondering about supplies, you can find all the details on her kit HERE.)

I made 5 tags and had LOTS of leftovers, but I wasn't sure if I'd have any more time to create.  Happily, I did, so here are a few bonus projects.  I made a couple cards for good measure.
PS The darling peppermint fillers in my shaker card were one of my very favorite items in the kit.
And one last tag to add to the bunch.
 And I know I say this every time, but seeing them all together is my favorite...
Normally the end of the month is something I look forward to, but this month I've been wishing would not come to an end.  You see not quite 6 years ago I was asked to guest design on The 12 Kits of Occasions blog.  And then the next month I won the chance to design again.  And then I was shocked and thrilled a couple months later to be asked to join full time.  My teammates have become dear friends, and I have loved receiving these kits and creating with them each month.  But more than that I have loved and been so blessed by the friendship and love and support I have received from this special group of friends.  I wish I had the words to express how deeply grateful I am for them, but no matter what I say, it could never be enough.  I suppose you can see where this is heart is so heavy as I write...but in the last 5 1/2 years we have gone from a family of 3 to a family of 5, and I just can't keep up.  I've been selfishly hanging on, but I know it's time.  And so today is my last official post as a member of the 12 Kits of Occasions.  It's been a joy!

One more tag...

Hi!  Back in November I shared a couple tags I had created for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags here.  Well, I love creating ornaments for my kiddos and my nieces, so I decided to I needed to make another one. 
My super sweet friend Lisa even sent me a cute stamped image from Pretty Pink Posh's Winter Wonderland, so I could have a cohesive set.
My sister started turning the tags I made for them into ornaments for the kids' tree after the packages were open.  We do it now, too.  Here is the set all together.  

 I hope you are having a blessed weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
