12 Kits of Occasion ~ December

Where did 2019 go?  It whizzed by so quickly for me this year, but I for one am glad to say goodbye to it and I hope that 2020 brings better, and more joyful events.  One thing that always brings me joy is when the 12 Kit's of Occasion gals post their projects using monthly kits put together by each member of our team.  This month our hostess was my dear friend Marcia from Marcia's Stampin' Pad and she made the most adorable tag kit for us aptly titled "The Tags of Christmas". 
 Just look at all the goodies she included.  I could have created for days and days, if I'd just had more time.  

These tags went together so quickly and they've already been put to good use on my Christmas packages.  Aside from a little coloring using Copics, these tags almost made themselves.  

Just look at that little snow globe tag.  Isn't it darling?  I left the embossed floral tag uncolored and just let the Joy die cut work its magic.

Sorry for the poor quality of my photo's  It's been dark and dreary here and I didn't realize the pictures were coming out blurry when I was photographing them.  Guess I need to have my eyes checked again and get some new glasses.

These little polar bears are super cute.  I wish I had more!  I may just have to add that stamp set to my collection.  

All the tags make me smile, but I think this one is my favorite.  Marcia sent this beautiful vintage printed tissue paper from Tim Holtz that I added as a background to a tag.  I added the greens and jolly ol' St. Nick.  

I was able to make 7 tags and I still have lots of left overs to make even more tags for next year.  Thank you so much Marcia for a darling kit!  You've helped make my gifts look amazing.

I hope you'll stop by the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how my talented teamies were inspired to use Marcia's sweet kit.  I have no doubt they'll make you smile. 

I wish you all a healthy, happy and blessed New Year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the vintage Santa you added to the tissue paper, he's fun! I'm thinking why didn't I use the HO HO HO on a separate tag, yours is so cute! They all are Birgit. I've loved being on The 12 Kits team with you and can't wait to see what 2020 brings for the team. Happy New Year XO

Wonderful tags, Birgit! I love how you added that vintage looking Santa to the tissue paper tag, and the Ho Ho Ho on a different tag looks so cool! The gold and white is perfect with the nativity scene - it just sparkles! I hope you have a blessed new year!

Hi Birgit! To say I am late is an understatement!! I have been dealing with heart problems and have had to put much of my usual routine activities aside. I've scrolled through all your posts though but just haven't felt like doing comments.. Loved every one of your 12 Kits tags! Wasn't that a fabulous theme!! I still have supplies left so I know I'll be doing more little tags later!! I'm still doing tests and more doctor's appts. but I'll give you a report soon! HUGS
