12 Kits of Christmas {December}

Sunday, December 30, 2012

This is our final kit of the year.  This kit was sent to us by Sharron.  What I love most about this kit is the variety of styles you can create from just one kit!  My first few cards are light and simple.  My last two are vibrant and modern.  The last card is my absolute favorite Christmas card I have made this year!


Sorry about the photos on the last 3 cards.  I wanted to send them out before Christmas so I had to photograph them after work (terrible natural light by the time I got home).

Even though this is the final kit of 2012, it is not the end. 
The 12 Kits will continue in 2013, but with a few changes!
I look forward to sharing these new changes with you on the last day of January!
If you'd like to see ALL of the cards from this year check out this Pinterest board.  Renee has kindly pinned all of this year's card there!


Supplies are too many to type here:)
If you have any questions about a particular product, let me know!

For this week's inspiration file I went back through the year and re pinned *some* of my favorites........{2012 Favorites}   The file is filled with amazing and innovative designs that you have created! I loved going back and seeing elements of your designs that have really become standard card making techniques or design elements.
Looking forward to 2013!

Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

After a wonderful day, like yesterday, I am feeling thankful!  We had so much fun, good food, and good times spent together!
For this card I layered on the texture to add interest to this white on white card. 
 I heat embossed, scored, glittered, and  die cut to add layers, shimmer, and shadows. 
My favorite is the glittered 'flower' that is really part of the quilt cuts die from WP9.
 Everything else (except the glittered bling) is PTI.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!
I can't wait to see your white on white creation!
