12 Kits of Occasions - Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

It is hard to believe that another year has simply disappeared before our eyes, isn't it?  But we're ending the year of 12 Kits of Occasions on a delightful note!  Lindsey's December kit was truly a "Winter Wonderland" of darling supplies ... thank you Lindsey!



I know you all have parties to prepare for, so I'll get right to the cards - but before I go ... my wish for the New Year undoubtedly is shared by all:  Peace to you and yours!




Be still my wood-grain loving heart!

 
I'm so happy that Lindsey included the negative/positive die cut snowflakes:  we've got to accentuate the negative when it's this gorgeous, right?  A few drops of Stickles in all the right places makes it all good!






We have TWO guests this month... Anita, and Bhvana - welcome ladies!!  So be sure to check out all the fabulous team cards, and those of our guests, too, at the 12 Kits of Occasion home page.

Thanks, so very much for all your visits this year.  I so adore this wonderful blogging community, and each and every one of you keep my heart happy ... I'm so blessed by your friendship!


Cheers to a happy, healthy, New Year!
 
=]  Michele

Gorgeous cards, Michele! I think the last one is my favourite.... I love that little bird -- and got all excited when I realized that I own that stamp set! LOL!

Hi Michele! So many wonderful cards! I love them all! The first with the houses and the sequins falling is stunning. Love the natural look of the one one with the pine branches.. very clever to use the negative of the snowflakes too.. I think my fave is the last.. the purple just pops off the page. The white background is so subtle and delicate - really gorgeous!

Bhavana said...

All cards are fabulous :) LOve them.. Wish you and your family a happy new year!

Anita in France said...

Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous, Michele! I've been waiting to see what you would do with the woodgrain paper ... knew you'd create something awesome ... and you did! Well, actually, they're all awesome ... and it's impossible for me to pick a favourite ... unless I have seven choices! New Year Joy to you, my lovely friend! Hugs, Anita :)

Kay Miller said...

Wow! Michele each and every one of these are just amazing! I'm scrolling up and down trying to pick my favorite and I can't do it! The colors are lovely and your designs are perfection!

Charlene said...

Lots of beautiful eye candy!!!! Love the colors of the kit and all your designs! Happy New Year!

Marybeth said...

Each one is stunning Michele! You sure have a knack for CAS with a twist of fun on each card!
Happy New Year to you my friend, bet you are cooking up something good!

Lisa said...

SWOON~there's a whole lot of eye candy here Michele!! I'm smitten with the first card and love that you Tracey & I used the snowflake trio and the same sentiment on our cards. You rocked Lindsey's fabulous kit. Wishing you and Tom a Blessed and Happy New Year!!

Joyce said...

Wow, Michele. Your cards are all amazing. I knew that you would pull all these supplies together in ways I could never dream of. Love that first card so much. Those colors looks so pretty together, and they are all really so very peaceful. Brilliant idea to use the snowflakes as well as their negative bits. And your 2nd to last card--just by putting that black circle behind those houses, you have really changed up the entire scene. So many things I want to copy from you, my friend. Thankful for my leftovers.

Lindsey said...

Alright, Michele...you've officially blown me away!!! Your W&W collage of goodies is gorgeous, downright gorgeous. The supplies you paired on your woodgrain card were seriously a match made in heaven...why didn't I think of that?! The way you created the scene with the inlaid die cut circle on your peace card is amazing and gorgeous I can hardly stand it. And I was so hoping someone would use the negative space of the snowflakes (that is one of the reasons I included them)...and I'm so glad you did! I started making a card with them that unfortunately got ruined by a serious stickles mishap. AND I totally wanted to mask the houses in the N&T winter scene and add the die cuts and you did that, too! I can't tell you how fun it is to see the ways you used my kit. Love them all (and you!) so much!

Dana & Glen said...

Fabulous collection of cards Michele! I have to say that I am partial to the wood grain card - STUNNING! Happy New Year to you.

Kristie Goulet said...

These are all gorgeous! I LOVE the color combos! So fresh and fun.
Happy New Year to you, my friend. xoxo

Sharron said...

Every one is just gorgeous, Michele! You really worked magic with Lindsey's kit! The pine branch on the rustic wood background is so awesome. The perfect place for the little woodcuts too. Wonderful idea to use the negative snowflakes. Luckily I still have mine! Love both of the cards with little houses. The circles on each of them are so great for more dimension. Your last card may be my favorite even though it's hard to pick just one. The colors, background and polka dot sentiment are all stunning! Looking forward to more fantastic posts in 2016. Wishing you a VERY Happy New Year!

Darnell J Knauss said...

As always, you rocked this kit, M!! Each creation is gorgeous and has your impeccable "style" written all of it!! Happy New Year Hugs back at you!! D

Barb Ghig said...

You did an absolutely STUNNING job with your kit, Michele! Jaw dropping beauty on every one...in fact, this time, I can't even pick a favorite...and that's the truth! Love how you played with the positive and negative snowflakes and how your designs really made the elements in your kit pop...WOW!
Wishing you a Blessed and Happy New Year, my friend!!!

Happy Dance said...

Wowzers! Oh so much goodness from this kit of goodies! You've really outdone your own creative self on this kit. Fantastic cards, each and every one. LOVE that woodgrain paper with the pine bough. A delicious collection. Blessed New Year darlin'! Celebrate your party pants off!! Bev

Bobby said...

I love everyone of these creative lovelies, Michele. The woodgrain. Stunning for sure. And I know you love your little neighborhoods.

The Paper Parade said...

AHHHH! Michele, there are many cards that I want to make from your post! First of all I love how you put the three little houses right next to each other with the circle in the background on the warm winter wishes card :) The negative space of snowflake dies was such a cool idea and I love how you laid it out on the card! The seasons greetings card is beautiful with the branch and the woodgrain paper, and that first peace card is stunning, I love how you put the same pattern on top of itself, it looks so neat!

Renee said...

A gorgeous kit and such gorgeous cards...
love them all!!

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Oh, Michele, such awesome colors, and designs, just love every single card and all together!
Happy 2016 to you!

JULIE EBERSOLE said...

Each of these are just so awesome, Michele! I love them! And, I kinda went agog over how you used the Hearth & Home dies on that polka dot background--oh LOLLY! So charming and adorable!

TK said...

What a lovely bunch of coconuts (er, I mean cards)! These are awesome, and I'm stilllll drooling over that last one!
