Walking in a Winter Wonderland - December '15 + GIVEAWAY

Hello, friends!  It's Lindsey here, and I'm so excited to be hosting this month.  It's my first time hosting, and I've been working on my "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" themed kit for over a year now.  I chose a color scheme that made me smile and gathered supplies that would depict things that I might see on a typical winter day from my favorite view...the view from my parents' front porch :)

I'm thrilled to have two guest designers this month.  My very first time being a part of The 12 Kits of Occasions was when I won a spot to guest design.  I knew I wanted to give someone else the same opportunity, and I couldn't be happier to have Bhavana from Blending Art and Craft joining us this month.  My second guest is a dear friend...Anita from My Papercraft World, affectionately known as Anita in France.  Isn't she just wonderful?!    

I hope that you have the most wonderful time hopping around to see how each designer has used the kit.  Thanks so much for sharing some of your day with us! PS Make sure you scroll to the bottom...I have another giveaway. :)

I love giveaways, so last year when I started purchasing supplies for my kit I bought an extra stamp set of In Stitches: Christmas from Clearly Besotted. 
I think it is such a cute set and it was recently retired, so if you'd like to win it, just leave a comment below. :) The giveaway will be open until midnight on January 5th.  Thanks so much for visiting today!  We look forward to seeing you in the new year!  We have some exciting announcements in store, so stay tuned. ;)

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas & a Festive Fall - November '15

Hello...Hope all my friends in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had so much fun putting this kit together. I fell in love with these 2 fabulous stamp sets from My Favorite Things - BB Cool Day and Harvest Mouse, so I had to use both. I kept my kit pretty simple with just polka dot patterned paper and a few other goodies to play with.  I invited 2 special guests to join us this month too.

Let's Go... - October '15

Hello!  Joyce Mehrberg here from Cards-by-the-Sea and I am our host for this month's festivities. It's the end of October, and that means that it is time for our regular 12 Kits of Occasions post. 

I went rogue and chose my own theme this month....Let's Go.  I used papers, stamps and dies all around the theme of travel and far away places. Last year, I purchased 2 pretty expensive sets from PTI, Get Lost and Pack Your Bags, and they had not seen much (any) love, so I decided to base my kit on those sets.  I also used a few stamps from Penny Black and Tim Holtz and paper from Echo Park.  You can see a complete supply list under the heading 'Monthly Kit Supplies - 2015 on the tab above.

We are joined by 2 additional crafty friends this month.  Kara from K and R Designs and Jacquie from What did I do today?.

Welcome to My Nightmare - September '15

Hi everyone! What a fun kit this was to put together. Although this month's theme is "welcome to my nightmare" I had fun putting together a kit full of Halloween cuteness! I have a lot of Halloween stamps and what I used in the kit didn't even really brush the surface, but I was so happy to get to share some of my stash with my very talented friends. I just can't wait to see what they create!

We want to welcome Lisa Elton who will be joining us for the remainder of 2015. Lisa is stepping in for Cathy who is taking some time off to tend to some family matters as her mom has just passed away.
