The 12 Kits of Occasions: November, 2016

It's time for our November12 Kits of Occasions group post.  Our host this month is Kim from Cupcakes, Cards and Kim  and her theme is "Happy Howlidays ".  How cute is that?  Kim sent out a wonderful kit with the most adorable images and pattern papers I fell in love with.  I love collecting pattern paper pads, but rarely actually use them.  You will see that I used these patterned papers in every card.  That is how much I loved the papers.

Here is a peek at the kit Kim sent.

There is a lot to see, so I'll get right to it.


When I thought I was done, I still could not stop using those patterned papers, so I made a bunch of tags that I am also using to play along with Tracey's 12 Tag's of Christmas Challenge.

I still did not use everything that Kim put in the kit, but I really tried.  At least I think I have fewer leftovers than usual.  Thanks so much, Kim, for sending such a wonderful kit.

That's it for me today.  Please visit us over at the 12 Kits of Occasions blog, where you can see a list of all the other designers and click over to their blogs.  You can also see who is our special Guest Designer this month.

Thanks for Visiting

  13. Joyce...your cards are so much fun! I love how you used this kit and all that patterned paper as well, totally surprised me! Your tags are so sweet and that paper looks amazing as a snowflake quilt, just beautiful, would love one like that in real life. Your cards are so sweet and that spotted puppy is adorable, so clever, you will have to show me how to do that. My favorite is your card with the car driving over the mountains and those are the prettiest mountains ever. Just so much fun in one post! Love them all.

  16. Joyce, these are outstanding! I felt the same about the papers, but instead of putting them to good use like you, I hoarded them. I adore your car card and the patterned hills, your Santa card, your all white with the peekaboo window of paper card, and especially your last tag...and bonus is that I can actually CASE that one. Hooray!
