12 Kits Of Occasions {November 2013}

Saturday, November 30, 2013

It's time to share this month's 12 Kits of Occasions with you!
I love this kit from Kelly.
Not only was I able to make several cards and tags, but it was the inspiration for the 'theme' of my gift wrap this year.  I like to change it a little each year.  Last year was silver and red.  This year something completely different, kraft and gray/silver.  You'll see as you get towards the end of this post.  This month we not only have a special guest, but also a giveaway.
The special guest designer is Karen Stein!
I don't know Karen so I'm excited to check out her blog and get to know her a little bit.
To win an Echo Park paper pad from this kit visit the 12 Kits blog to enter!



I love that even though the papers I used are gray, black, and white, there is still some green and red peeking out from underneath!  All of my tags and gift wrapped packages have been spritzed with shimmer spray and have a wonderful shine to them!

Don't forget to see what everyone else has created and enter the giveaway here!
