12 Kits of Occasions - November with Kelly

***There's a prize up for grabs - Read about it on The 12 Kits of Occasions blog***

It's the 30th of the month and time for November's edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions.  You can find us on our blog, Facebook and our Pinterest page (I especially love seeing all the cards made this year grouped together all in one place).  This month our hostess is Kelly of Gingham Girl and wow did she come up with a great kit for us this month!  In true Kelly style, our kit was packaged in a gingham bag...I won't be surprised if I see that bag or pieces of it included in someone's project this month.  Here a peek at the cute kit we all received from Kelly.

Can't you just imagine all the fun we had with this one?  I love the color combinations Kelly sent us...red and black as well as the traditional red and green.

My first card is my favorite.  I love the little dog and matching sweater.  I also added a little bell and red sparkly collar to go with the cute sentiment.

My second card uses some of the beautiful patterned papers and one of the PTI One-Liner die sentiments.

My third card took advantage of the snowflake embossed panel that Kelly sent us and I added some Lil Inker glittery snowflakes.

This fourth card has one of my favorite Christmas sentiments all stamped in white with the chalkboard look.

My last card also uses some of the beautiful patterned papers and bright red Waltzingmouse ornament.  I used my Lil Inker Stitched Mat Circles for the base and I'm loving the gray, white and red combination.

Didn't Kelly send us a great kit?  You are going to be amazed at all the creations the other girls in our 12 Kits of Occasions group have made.  In fact, I heard Joyce made 15!  Can you believe that?  15 cards and who knows how many more she made before she was finished! 

Thank you Kelly for a great kit this month!

Everyone is just blowing me away with their creations! Cathy! I am in love with your last card...I didn't know how to incorporate that Nordic deer ornament with that paper in my own kit yet you did it perfectly! Your scottie is adorable, such an awesome layout for him. Your snowflake card is positively icy!! A brilliant idea to pair the joy one-liner with all those fancy patterned papers. And your holly jolly wreath card just makes me smile! Absolutely fantastic creations with this kit, WOW! Hugs! :)X0

Hi Cathy,hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your sweet family.
You did a great job with Kelly's kit! Your little dog is adorable and I love the design . Love the neat way you wrapped the twine around the buttons. The snowflake card is another favorite of mine.....you know I love them all!

Cathy, your baby its cold outside and merry cards are blow me away stunning! I love everything about them :) I also love what you did with the joy card. What a great way to showcase the patterned paper and then have the cool die go across.

Cathy your cards are all so beautiful!! I love them all so much! I especially love the snowflake and Scotty dog cards! But it Is impossible to choose any ONE as they are all fantastic!! What a wonderful kit Kelly made and how lovely it is to see everyone's gorgeous creations!!!

Joyce said...

You made quite a lot with your kit, and everything is just stunning. I love how you incorporated those different word dies, and really used that incredible patterned paper.

Cathy I totally expected your post to be awesome, and it is. Al fabulous card. I love the glitter collar and the jingle bell on the doggie, my Sam tags on his collar jingle when he walks. A reminder he is always under my feet. Love how you glittered your snowflakes! Great job.

Christina said...

Everyone's cards are so much fun this month--what a great kit! I still have my little Scottie dog and will be CASEing your first card with him! I had the same idea to put a bell on his collar with that sentiment. I love the patterned panels with the crisp black mats and die cut word on the second card. Your snowflake card looks perfectly wintry with the silver, white, and black and the glittered snowflakes. Your last card is especially gorgeous with the double bow, bold mixed patterns, and clever sentiment treatment. Totally inspiring!
