Our 12 Kits of Occasions team can always count on Ms. Heggins, of Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim!, for darling additions to our annual set of Christmas cards!  Kim includes such a cute variety of goodies for her Christmas kit... here's a peek:


Kudos to Lindsey for another fun composite photo!

I nearly turned on some Christmas music!  Oh YOU can, too... I'll wait!

Ready.  Set.  Go....

More layers, and papers, than I'm used to using - but don't they all look good?!

A special memory from my childhood!

Who doesn't like to shake their Christmas packages?

Kim HAD ME at Houndstooth!

Hmmm .. think I have a FEW coffee-loving friends who might enjoy this one!

HAD to make a CAS Christmas card!
 
You'll find tons of inspiration for your own Christmas card-making days at the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog - and all the details about the kit contents, too.  I'm off to be amazed... won't you join me? 

Thank you, Kim for this adorable kit ... it was a true Christmas gift!

What a wonderful collection of cards Michele! The sledding card is so darling!! What a great way to create a scene using the printed paper like that. Sweet, sweet cards my friend! Happy Christmas in July!

As usual, inspiration on steroids... Wow! Angles, and never before seen dies (the simple white snow hills), all wonderful. LOVE the soft aqua blue of the little miss' outfit, and how her pointed downhill position just seems to match her startled facial expression. Making note of several ideas from Michele this morning. Hugs!

Jeanne said...

Oh my goodness gracious, Michele! Wow! All of these cards are fantastic. You have done a stellar job with this kit. You've used your pattern papers so well and gone from cute to elegant so seamlessly. I'm always in awe of your creativity! Thank you so much for sharing! Hugs!!

What a fab group of Christmas cards girlfriend! I seem to have lost the gift of mixing patterns (if I ever had it to begin with) but you've proved to be a master at it.

Kristie Goulet said...

Oooooohhhh! - yes that is what I was saying each time a new card scrolled on by! ;) LOVE these so much! Hugs!!

Kim Heggins said...

Michele...as always you did not disappoint! So many incredible and creative cards, love them all and can't wait to pull out my leftovers to do a bit of case'ing! Your sweet trio of critters is my favorite of your collection, they look so sweet. And your cup of coffee, so yummy with the bits of cinnamon sprinkled on top! Love you use of all that patterned paper, you totally rocked it! I really do love them all. Wishing you a wonderful day!

Marybeth said...

Goodness, Michele, you've outdone even yourself with this fantastic collection ... I scrolled down wondering how each could be better than the last! Got to the Bethlehem one and thought it couldn't be topped ... and then came to the silver and white CAS last one ... be still my heart, it's a stunner! Hugs, Anita :)

This is a perfect plethora of prettiness!! I love the way you've colored those lil' critters and your sledder. Your Bethlehem card is as pretty as can be and the shaker is delightful. Another incredible collection from our kit!

Sharron said...

Oh my, look at you! The layering on your first card is amazing. Adore the coloring on your kitty! The little PI girl is so adorable too, Hasn't it been fun to see all the different papers. The array of ornaments with a shaker is such a great design. And I love your last elegant design--stunning with CAS perfection!

All so lovely Michele, I really love how you added character to your furry friends with their spots and patches. Lots of lovely colouring and great use of all the patterned paper and all still very CAS! Crank up those tunes!

Michelle Murray said...

Michele what wonderful and cheery cards you've created!! That CAS card is so elegant, and that HO3 made me chuckle :)

Jeanne J. said...

Lots of beautiful cards Michele but the one that steals my breath is the Let it snow! Wow is that stunning! I think it's true that opposites attract because I would never in a billion years make a white card but swoon.. so elegant and clean - jaw dropping! Loving your card with the pups too.. the coloring of the spots .. I mean a calico kitty? so clever and imaginative! Wonderful visit again my clever friend!
