November Card Kitchen Cards

My November Card Kitchen cards were shared on The Card Kitchen blog earlier this month, but I forgot to post them here. The November kit is filled with goodies from Jillibean Soup's fun Christmas Cheer Chowder line, plus embellishments and lovelies from other awesome manufacturers.

My friend June (at Simply Elegant Paper Crafts) and I were chatting the other day about how much we like designing with kits. It's so easy to be super productive when the papers and embellishments have all been carefully coordinated for you! If you've never tried working with a kit (card or scrapbooking), I'd encourage you to give one a try!

Happy Holidays
A few accordian-fold rosettes behind some Jillibean Soup Christmas Cheer Chowder Pea Pods (die-cuts) gives this card some fun extra dimension.

HO HO HO, Making A List
I rolled some paper around a bamboo skewer, scroll-style, to make Santa's list. Below is a detail shot:

'Tis the Season
So many awesome die-cuts in the Christmas Cheer Chowder Pea Pod Parts -- the three ornaments and the word "JOY," plus a ton more! This kit also contains a 12x12 Jillibean Soup Place Mats (Red Merry Frames), which is a fabulous collection of Polaroid-style frames.

Merry Christmas
I used the red pearls included in the kit as ornaments for the adorable snowflake trees. Also, check out that darling tree clip from Maya Road.

December 25
These merry elves (more Pea Pod Parts die-cuts) are just adorable! Not the chevron kraft bag in the background -- perfect for layering and/or holding a gift card!

Love the turquoise "fa la la" background pattern (Jillibean Soup) and the adorable wooden snowflake button (Bella Boulevard). The snow globe and the word "MERRY" are still more Pea Pod Parts.

Lots of wonderful kit elements on this card. The word "peace" is from Jillibean Soup's Wise Words sticker collection; the deer are die-cuts from the Pea Pod Parts; and I've used two of the three ribbons in this kit. Also, see that green striped rectangle with the red label peeking out from behind the blue circle? It's one of the 3x4 Bite Size Bits in the Christmas Cheer Chowder line. 

Special Delivery
Maybe my favorite card this month because of the spunky pink background and the chevron bag!
