12 Kits Of Occasions Nov. 2019 - All Is Calm

Hello friends.  Hard to believe it's the end of the month (AGAIN!), but I hope all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful day on Thursday (and maybe are enjoying a 4 day weekend??!!) and now are gearing up to celebrate Christmas!

Lindsey Larsen is our hostess this month at 12 Kits Of Occasions and she sent out the most incredibly BEAUTIFUL kit entitled All Is Calm for us to enjoy this month!


Just look at all the gorgeous papers and die cuts Lindsey included in her kit!!  I could have created for days and days if I'd had more time!  But I do have 5 cards to share with you today, so sit back and relax, and enjoy!


I think this is probably my favorite card of the 5...probably because I absolutely LOVE the word JOY and Lindsey die cut it from the most wonderful copper and shimmery paper!  I added some white acrylic paint to the leaf die cuts included in the kit, and then adhered to the lovely stamped geometric paper along with a strip of the darker green cs and a thin strip of the copper paper.  A simple copper bow completed this card.


Lindsey did all the work on this card with the die cutting...I simply added the stamped sentiment, a red scarf to the snowman, and adhered all to a CAS white and black card base.


This is probably my next favorite card...I love red, black, and white together!!  Although this card is whimsical with the reindeer, I just love the embossed sentiment on the circle ornament and had fun combining the two!  Can you see the shiny gems on the reindeer's noses?!


I loved this simple strip of trees that Lindsey stamped and also the lovely piece of vellum she included in the kit...I think they paired up just beautifully!!


I'm sad I didn't have sunshine this week to photograph this card especially, as it's once again using the beautiful copper paper Lindsey included in the kit, and IRL, this whole card just shimmers!!


And here's a photo of all of them together!  I can't wait to see what my teamies made with this kit, and I know you will enjoy seeing all their creations too!  You can check it all out right HERE and click HERE to see a list of all the supplies Lindsey used in her kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and a BIG thank you to Lindsey for her lovely, lovely kit...it truly was a piece of calm creating with it!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  1. A fantastic collection, Marcia ... as I saw each one I thought 'ha, that's my favourite' ... then I scrolled up and down, down and up ... and decided they're all so luscious that I couldn't possibly choose! That little red scarf'd snowman was calling my name though!! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. The neutral nature tones is soothing to look at in your group. I love the spattered leaves, the plaid background, the creche and especially the snowman's red popping scarf!

  9. I am fascinated by your designs and details, Marcia! The snow you put on the leaves looks amazing, and that little red scarf on the snowman is fantastic! Your reindeer in red with that red bow on the ornament look great on the black and white, your gems are a wonderful touch on the row of trees, and I love your copper/white/cream color combination on your large ornament card! You did Lindsey proud I'm sure!
