April 12 Kits of Christmas

April is my month to host the 12 Kits of Christmas. I am blessed to be in 
this group of very talented women of card makers. Each  month one of the 12 
will send out the same kit to all the women in the group, and then 
 we all make Christmas card. It's so fun to see what we  each comes up with. So many
different ideas. The reason for the club is so we will have some cards made ahead of time.

This is the kit I sent out

  1. You sent such a wonderful kit this month. I see you had no trouble making lots of cards! My cards literally put themselves together. Everything was so perfect. That was the first Christmas tree I have ever trimmed, and no one ever told me I couldn't do it with yarn! Really stunning cards this month, and fabulous kit.

  2. I saved looking at your blog for last...I wanted to see your kit through everyone's eyes first and it was worth the wait. Your cards are all just so fabulous, so beautiful and elegant. Such a wonderful kit...that is why I love doing these challenges to see how differently we all look at the kit and use products that we don't have, your kit hit both of those for me and I really loved the challenge. Thank you so much for making this month's kit so wonderful.

  3. Marybeth, this was such a great kit that you created for us, thank you!! I love all the different cards you were able to create with it! I think my favorite is definitely the window scene...I just love the colors you chose. But I also love the holly vine up the lamppost, and the way that you used the leaves inside the Christmas cleaver!

  4. First...
    fabulous kit! :)
    I loved all the different elements included in it...
    and so elegant!
    And yes...
    my favorite card is the first one too!
    They are all gorgeous...
    but I love the simple elegance of that first one!
    The ribbon treatment...
    just perfection with those adorable angels!!
    Love, love, love!! :)
    A fabulous month Marybeth! :)

  5. Oh Wow Marybeth! You really out did yourself! What an amazing collection of cards I don't know where to begin. I think it was brilliant that you left the angels uncolored - they look stunning with the bit of bling on their outfits - very clean. I love what you did with the holly too - dressing up the lamp post and WOW - the last one with the Christmas tree all decked out with the lamp post - AMAZING! I loved seeing the kit through your eyes - You made everything just shine! Thank you for being hostess this month and for all the goodies to try - I've bought a few of them already - the angel girls, the eyelash yarn and most of the dies!!

  6. Oh, Marybeth, this has been such a fabulous month! You sent such a wonderful collection of goodies. And your cards are all so gorgeous! I agree about the first one. The angels look so sweet and perfect without any coloring. The touches of bling is all they need! Love how you used the holly on the lamppost but your tree is-well, stunning! Awesome job with all of them! And thanks again for a wonderful kit and very special month!

  7. WOW! Marybeth, you sent out a beautiful kit! I love all the papers you choose and the embellishments, the two angels, oh I can't forget your favorite tree, all of it. Your cards look absolutely beautiful!!! You are so lucky to be in this group getting all these cards done ahead of time and having so much fun doing it. I am off to check out the other ladies that received your kit. Have a good day.

  8. Wow! Your kit was a gigantic success MaryBeth, you did a really great job coming up with the ingredients and your made so many too! My favorite is the last one with the lampost and of course, the window with the village scene. I love that window die and I can't believe I didn't picture the village behind it. Thank you so much for a great 12 Kits month!

  9. What a fantastic kit Marybeth and your cards are outstanding. I wouldn't have expected anything less. You made so many cards and they are all fabulous.

  10. Wow Marybeth, You have been busy. Love all the cards you made. Definitely a hard time picking out a favorite. Love all your different bow treatments. You did a great job with the sparkly fringe/twine. Nice kit too!

  11. You did an amazing job this month, Marybeth, both with the kit and your beautiful cards! My favorite is the first one with those sweet angels and all of the gorgeous sparkles you added. I can't wait to use the lamp post I have left after seeing everyone's creations with it, and yours looks so pretty with the vines trailing up it. The window scene you created is gorgeous, too, especially the snowy border at the top. Thanks so much for the fabulous supplies and inspiration this month!

  12. this was such a great kit!! so many cool die cuts!! thanks so all of your beautiful cards!! I think the Lamppost one is my fav!!

  14. Wow! Look at the goodness you sent out and look at what you did with it! Thank you for hosting this month.....I enjoyed working with those Memory Box die cuts. I like how you've layered the holly vine over the lamppost. Great job!!

  15. Your kit and cards are fantastic Marybeth! I'm just smitten with your musical angels:) That card is pure perfection! And I love how you've combined your diecuts with your stamped images in your other cards!

    I don't know how you ladies do it every month (but I'm glad you do it;)!

  16. Marybeth, thank you SO much for such a fun kit! Your cards are all sooo very elegant. Stunning, especially that last tree! I LOVE how you layered the leaves over it!
