Hi everyone, its Jessica here....the excited hostess of this month's 12 Kits of Occasions! I had a blast putting together this kit for my favorite occasion of all...Christmas :) I included images from some of my favorite stamp companies including Paper Smooches (of course!), Lawn Fawn, and Mama Elephant. I not only want to share some of my favorite products with my fellow 12 Kitters, but with you as well, so here's your chance to win an awesome prize...the Paper Smooches Christmas Words dies that I used in this month's kit! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on any or all of our blogs. I will choose a random winner on Thursday and post the winner here on the 12 Kits blog, so make sure to come back to see if you are a winner. Good luck and enjoy hopping along the way! If you would like to see the rest of the supplies included in the kit make sure to stop by my blog as I have a list of supplies there.

Be Merry

Wow..... I'd love to be a 12 Kits guest designer for January 2014! I follow the DT each month and am always amazed at the lovely projects!

We are all so excited to have you as part of the team for next month. 
Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations. We know you will do a fabulous job!
Just email your mailing address to me at 
I will be sending out kits within the next few days.

Want to Be a 12 Kits Guest Designer?

Would you like to receive one of our 12 Kits of Occasions kits in the mail next month? Here's your chance to join with our group and be a Guest Designer. We all love getting our "happy mail"! It's even more fun than getting something you have ordered because it is a total surprise. We don't even post a list of supplies until everyone has their kit in hand.

The theme is "I Think I Love You" and it can be anything love related. I tried to pick things that could be for anyone---from a note for one of the kids to a card for hubby or note to a special friend. Do you do something special for Valentine's Day? Leave a comment and let us know. The contest will run until December 29 at noon. The winner will be announced on December 30 when we post our December reveal.

Good luck! We would love to see what you would do with your very own kit!

The 12 Kits of Occasions - November Kit

Welcome to the November edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions!  It's Kelly and I am so excited to be your hostess this month!

First, I want to welcome our special guest Karen Stein!  Karen and I live in neighboring towns here in upstate New York and our husbands work together at the local fish hatchery.  We share a love of stamping and whenever we get together, I talk her ear off about the newest papercrafting supplies on the market :)!

When I began searching for the papers for my Christmas kit, I didn't have to look long to see that the chalkboard theme was going to be popping up everywhere for the holidays.  I found this adorable collection from Echo Park called " 'Tis the Season" and used this sheet to set the rest of the elements for my kit:

Christmas trees, holly, ornaments, reindeer, stockings, snowflakes, and even a tiny Scottie dog!  You will see some old and new favorites stamps and dies from Waltzingmouse Stamps, A Muse Studio, Pink Persimmon, Hero Arts, Whipper Snapper Designs, Memory Box, L'il Inkers, and Papertrey Ink.  The full list of supplies can be seen at the top of the blog under the "Monthly Kit Supplies" heading.

Special thanks, as always, to Kara for taking those amazing photos of my kit and making a wonderful collage.  I hope that you enjoy the projects this month!

 I have included treat bags that could be used to create favors.   Die cut place cards can be used to show where your guests should sit or to label meals on a buffet table.  Paper and embellishments included could be used to create napkin rings or dinner menus.  The kit could also be used to create a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner invitation or an autumn birthday card.  I can not wait to share with you what we have created this month.  Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see every project and enter the GIVEAWAY!
