12 Kits July '16: Christmas in July

12 Kits time everybody! And just look at our goodies from
our hostess, Marybeth Lopez from Marybeth's Time For Paper.
Thanks to Lindsey for another gorgeous graphic!
The perfect way to cool off during the hot summer
is to play in the cool craft room. Turn up the air, and get lost in creating!
Beautiful papers, gorgeous die cuts, and then there were these darling critters...
Here's what I did!

Red and White! My favorite for Christmas. 
Loved Marybeth's die cut sentiment, might need to get this one!

Marybeth gave us double sided papers, and this one with the gold dots
had the green diagonal stripe on the other side. After I watercolored the 
holly and berry, I lined the image with gold pen to match the gold dots.

Love this little whimsical guy! Had to do a snowy scene for him.
MFT's Wonky Stitched Circles, and PTI's In the Meadow (hill)
PTI: Confetti Toss made the embossed snow.

Put a bit of glitter snow on his nose, pocket & hill.

These 3 elegant buttons were also in the kit.

PTI's Twig wreath just went perfectly with this  happy holiday paper.
A few die cuts from Make It Market: All Through the House too.
I colored the reindeer red and added wink of stella to his antlers.

Marybeth sent these die cuts, colored and gold embossed. Went with the 
floral paper perfectly! (So glad I have this Make it Market set to case
this bouquet!)

Finally, I had to make a tag set with the critters included in the kit.

Thanks to Marybeth, I've got a great start on the holidays!
And thank you for visiting.
Can't wait to see what all the others did with this kit!
