Pumpkin Spice December kit - Cards


Look what I made with my
The kit includes the Stickles I used on the icing and the Glossy Accents on the cherry, as well as all of the papers.  All of these flowers and this gorgeous brad and paper are included too:
  I have really come to love monthly kits:
  • It is a nice way to attain varied and new stash 
  • Versatile; can always create cards that are quite different from the overall kit theme
  • The papers and embellishments coordinate (saves time shopping my stash)
  •  It is A LOT less expensive than trying to purchase all of the items individually
  • Sometimes I am overwhelmed by all of the supplies I own and I don't know where to begin a project.  That is when I grab a kit and find a good sketch or (cut I wish to create on my Cricut.)
I have to admit I have amassed more than a dozen kits in the past year.  I have made at least 4 projects from each kit I own, and yet there are still tons of supplies left to play with...love that!

The December 2012 "Winterland Fun" kit at Shop Pumpkin Spice is definitely at the top of my favorite kits.  Check it out:
Two 6x6 pads (Carta Bella and My Mind's Eye), an assortment of brads, primes, washi tape, twine, seam binding, Stickles, die cuts, card stock, and more for only $24.95 (and FREE SHIPPING for orders over $50 to US residents.)  Drool...for more inspiration using this kit, please check out the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog.

I hope you will treat yourself to this kit.

But my husband and my favorite brother-in-law (hi, James!) both have December birthdays, so I needed a thank you card for my hottie husband to write for his birthday gifts and a birthday card for James.

My stamped sentiments both came from the "Girlie Doodles" stamp set.  I have used these two sentiments in particular countless times; I find they work very well for masculine cards.  For the birthday card I also used another color of crinkle ribbon from Shop Pumpkin Spice.  The cupcake is from the "Sweet Treats" Cricut cartridge p. 27 cut @ 3".
You may have seen my earlier posts where I used this kit to create some fun winter-themed cards to use as either a Christmas card or a Christmas thank you card :

I hope you found this post helpful; Shop Pumpkin Spice is my favorite online store.

Happy Monday!
