The 12 Kits of Occasions - November Kit



Welcome to the November edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions!  It's Kelly and I am so excited to be your hostess this month!

First, I want to welcome our special guest Karen Stein!  Karen and I live in neighboring towns here in upstate New York and our husbands work together at the local fish hatchery.  We share a love of stamping and whenever we get together, I talk her ear off about the newest papercrafting supplies on the market :)!

When I began searching for the papers for my Christmas kit, I didn't have to look long to see that the chalkboard theme was going to be popping up everywhere for the holidays.  I found this adorable collection from Echo Park called " 'Tis the Season" and used this sheet to set the rest of the elements for my kit:



Christmas trees, holly, ornaments, reindeer, stockings, snowflakes, and even a tiny Scottie dog!  You will see some old and new favorites stamps and dies from Waltzingmouse Stamps, A Muse Studio, Pink Persimmon, Hero Arts, Whipper Snapper Designs, Memory Box, L'il Inkers, and Papertrey Ink.  The full list of supplies can be seen at the top of the blog under the "Monthly Kit Supplies" heading.

Special thanks, as always, to Kara for taking those amazing photos of my kit and making a wonderful collage.  I hope that you enjoy the projects this month!
