12 Kits of Occasions: January '17 'Snow Day'

I'm so glad you came by today for a visit. There's so much to see!
It's time for 12 Kits' January post, and our hostess this month is 
the fabulous Jeanne Jackna. (A Kept Life)
Jeanne's kit is all about winter, full of sweet happy papers, snowy 
images, and die cuts, and of course because it's 'Queen Jeanne', lots
of accessories! Honestly, she's the most generous crafter I know and a genius with dp!
So get cozy and let's take a look at Snow Day!

Oh those Memory Box skates! Love them to bits! Gave the blades a silvery tone with a pen,
and matched them with one of Jeannes' silver snowflake charms.

Poppystamps Wintertime Fairies fly over a PTI Mix & Mat: Snowflakes die.

Oh yes, Jeanne included the twine, a color I didn't have in my stash.

These sweet friends from Pretty Pink Posh just look better together.

See that little muffled bird on the banner? A piece of leftover dp Jeanne included, cut 
with a scrap from a Poppystamps die.

I guess you can imagine what fun it was getting this kit and putting everything together.
This sledding cub just seemed to go with the sentiment!

Memory Box snowflakes: Evangeline

No way did I use all the papers and elements and bling in Jeanne's kit.
Plenty leftovers for More!

Can't wait to see what my teammates made with their kit.
We have 2 guests this month, 
Cathy Weber from Empty Nests Crafter, an original member of the group that Jeanne
invited back.
Richard Breaks - That's Mister Cardmaker to You
and the winner of last month's comments: Marcia Hill - Marcia's Stampin' Pad.
Please go by for a visit and leave some love on their blogs! 

Thank You, Jeanne! Loved every single bit!


  1. LOVE every single card Nancy!! Every one is so bright and cheery and FUN!! Especially love how you used the fairies on your shaker card...too CUTE!! Definitely going to have to CASE a couple of these with my leftovers...thank you for the great inspiration!! :0)

  2. Oh, Nancy. Your cards are so bright and happy, and your use of the kit was just spot-on! I love your skates card so much. Tying them to the branch? GENIUS! Your coloring is wonderful as well. I have some great ideas to employ when I go for my leftovers, now!

  3. Holy Cow ! Look at all the beautiful cards you made Nancy! I love how you colored up the dies - I think you're brilliant with coloring! The purple hair on the faeries is candy for my eyes! Beautiful inking too - the ripples in the pond, the skates, even the snow on the top of the Brrrr die cut! In awe of you!

  4. Each one of your cards is a feast for the eyes! I love how you have taken a kit and put your personal mark on it! Fantastic!

  5. I just knew you'd blow this kit out of the water Nancy, and you sure did! The icy snow fairies card is just the sweetest! Has me wishing I'd saved mine out. You always seem to think of every details to make each card special like the little bird banner on your ice fishing bear. That is such an extra touch of fun! Ice skates hanging from the branch.... genius!!

  6. Nancy...oh my goodness, 7 simply amazing and incredible cards. Love all your wonderful coloring, so beautiful and so very striking! Your ice skate card is my favorite, just love how you hung them from that branch, so clever!

  7. Swoon, love them all Nancy! Hanging the skates on the branch is such a fun idea and I like your silver blades. I'm with you on the white skates you mentioned on my blog. I don't even like it when they wear the flesh colored skates in the competitions on TV LOL!! I just adore your card with the fairies! You made Jeanne's kit shine!

  8. Oh, Nancy, love every one! They are all so bright and cheery--with amazing colors. And you used the papers so well. The skates design is especially wonderful and so creative! You added so many charming little details making every card special so I could never pick a favorite!

  9. Never one to choose favorites, Nancy, but those darling Pixies have sprinkled their magic-dust on my heart! OH I'm seeing so many more precious possibilities for my leftovers! Each and every card is a charmer, my friend!

  10. Each of your cards is so well done...what blew me away was all the coloring you did. I especially loved the way you added the silver to the skates and the subtle shading on them. I think you really made good use of every element of Jeanne's kit.

  11. Oh my goodness what a treat to come visit and see so many beautiful cards <3

  12. All seven are adorable and oh so creative Nancy! I just cant express how much I love each one, your coloring and layering are beautiful! They are so colorful for winter cards and I love that!
    Sorry I am so late in commenting on the 12 kits, its been so busy around her. Hugs to you and hope you and your family are all happy and well.

  13. I can't tell you enough how gorgeous all 7 of your cards are--LOVE LOVE LOVE!! The first card where you added colour to the skates and the winter looks fabulous, then the gorgeous shaker! On all your cards the colouring and the layering are fabulous. Totally inspired by your card so glad to have leftovers!
