12 Kits Of Holidays {January}

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hello!  It's time again for the 12 Kits, but with a twist!
This year we have decided to celebrate many holidays throughout the year, not just Christmas.  Don't worry there will be plenty of Christmas inspiration about every other month, but sprinkled in will be holidays like Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, and of course, VALENTINE"S DAY!!
We will continue to post on the last day of every month.
Along with the format change we also have a few new faces.  We will miss having Suzanne and Cathy joining us each month, but in their places we have some wonderfully talented additions....Tracey and Kelly!

Each member will host a different month.
This month's kit creator was Joyce
She put together some of my favorite colors and images for this Valentine's Day kit.

These tandem bikes are just so sweet!

I love making tiny love notes. 
 I have made several sets in the past, like these, these, and these.
I'm sure I'll make them again:)

I decided to package '5 things I love about you' in a little red box.





I hope you will take some time to visit the rest of the ladies.
I can't wait to see what they have made!

Kit Supplies Include: Papertrey Ink, Wplus9, Lil' Inker, Technique Tuesday, Verve, Stampin' Up, Paper Smooches, Sizzix, Queen and Co.
