The 12 Kits of Occasions--February 2014



Welcome back for another edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions!  This month's kit was provided by Renee, and as you can probably tell from the beautiful graphic above (courtesy of Kara), our theme is everything SNOW!

Life certainly hasn't slowed down around here in the month since I last posted, but I snuck into my craft room just long enough to make 3 cards with the kit.  Like Renee, I adore the papers from Crate Paper's Bundled Up, so this kit is sure to see more love in the future.

I made a beeline for the teal chevron patterned paper as soon as I unpacked my kit.  This is such a fantastic winter color, and it pairs beautifully with the glittered silver snowflakes.


Renee included some darling die cut snowmen, so I pieced one together and popped him up on a tag.  The kit came with lovely red satin ribbon, but I wound up using some red twill from my stash because it seemed to fit the playful feel of the card a little better.


I don't often do pink and sparkles together, but I had a lot of fun combining them on my last card!

These are all so wonderful. I love the last one with all the sparkle.

Jeanne J said...

Hi Christina! Couldn't wait to see what you made. I love CAS look of the first- the colors are matched perfectly with the silver and all those yummy snowflakes look fab. That snowman on the tag has to be my fave - so cute and the red is so bright! The pink silver and aqua on the last looks so yummy too!

Kara said...

Kristie Goulet said...

So glad you found a bit of time to play with your kit. As usual, your projects are stellar, and I will be CASEing you.

Sharron said...

Oh, the patterned paper on your first card is a favorite of mine too. Love your wonderful design! Your snowman is so sweet too. And your stacked 'snows' look SO cool. I wasn't sure about the pink & glitter at first either but ended doing something similar and love it.

Tracey McNeely said...

Christina for slipping into your craft room you managed to make three fabulous cards. I am always so excited to see what you have done. So glad I still have the teal chevron paper so I can CASE you. Of course you always add that touch of stitching on at least one card--LOVE. Wonderful creations!

Kim Heggins said...

Christina...amazing trio of cards! Your last card is my favorite, I really love what you did with the snow dies, so fun and so clever and I am so happy that I still have mine to play with, just so fun.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.....happy thoughts!

Cathy Weber said...

I am kicking myself for not thinking to use those snow die cuts all together on one card...wow, that is my favorite Christina! Love the pink and silver together and I also love the little snowman on a tag...cute with the red bow and I think that is even some washi tape along the bottom...great job with Renee's kit!

Happy Dance said...

So nice to see you again in blogland! You've made some lovely cards from all your kit's goodies. I especially love the that first one with that wonderful chevron dp, and the sparkly snowflakes. Have a good weekend. Bev

Kelly S. said...

Oh that snowman card is awesome! I love the red accents and how he's placed on that tag. The Let it Snow card layout is perfection! And oh how I love the silvery collage against the teal...a cool and icy color combo just like you said! Amazing creations as always, Christina!

The Paper Parade said...

Christina, I love how we both did multiple snow words on a card. Yours looks so stylish with the glitter paper in the back. Then I'm loving the first card, it is beautiful with the glitter snowflake!

Darnell J Knauss said...
