Here are some additional details about each of the fabulous products individually!


The Nostalgic Notions stamp set is filled with images inspired by fabrics and linens popular in the 1940s.  There are lots of layering and pattern building options in this set which includes several multi-step florals, a large scalloped frame which layers nicely over a standard A2 card base, a fun graphic corner element, a pretty scalloped border, and several mix and match sentiments. 

  • large scalloped frame, 3-1/2" x 4-5/8”
  • largest flower, 1-7/8” x 1-1/2"
  • corner element, 2-1/4” x 4-1/8”
  • scalloped border, 5-1/2” x 1/2”
  • “on my mind” sentiment, 2” x 7/8”
  • “hoping your day is” sentiment, 1-5/8” x 1/8”




The coordinating dies for the main stamp set make the images that much more versatile!  The large scalloped rectangle will definitely get a lot of mileage as well!  Such a wonderful basics.  Here are some basic measurements for your reference:

  • scalloped rectangle,  5" x 3-3/4"
  • largest flower, 2" x 1-5/8"
  • smallest flower, 3/4" x 1/2"
  • largest leaf, 1" x 3/4"
  • smallest leaf, 5/8" x 3/4"


The little elements in this set coordinate with the Button dies in the kit and allow you to add colorful details to the diecut buttons, much like those from the 40s and 50s. Just imagine how fun it will be to cut the buttons from coaster board for extra dimension or even add glossy accents for a realistic shine!



Not only can you use the stamps above with these dies, there are also sheets of pre-printed buttons that coordinate with them. Each button die has a little “guide” on the backing of the die which can be lined up with printed guides on the papers, making it easy to get perfect cuts.

  • large circle buttons, 1-1/8"
  • medium circle buttons, 1"
  • small circle buttons, 3/4"
  • heart button, 1-1/8" x 1-1/4"
  • scalloped trim, 5-5/8” x 5/8"
  • corner border accent,  4-3/8" x 2-1/2"



The patterned paper collection included in this kit looks like it came right out of your grandmother's linen closet!

Papers 1

Betsy has only selected the absolute BEST for this kit, so she selected a high quality linen paper for her vintage style patterned paper collection to be printed on!  

Papers 3

Besides the gorgeous patterns, the collection even includes 6 pages (2 designs, 3 sheets each) of pre-printed elements that can be used with the coordinating buttons dies and scalloped border die!

Button & trims papers

Here are a few details about the Nostalgic Notions paper collection…

  • 6 of the pages feature pre-printed elements that coordinate with the button and scalloped border dies also included in the kit.
  • The gorgeous colors used in this collection are Tropical Teal, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, Hibiscus Burst and Pure Poppy.



Letter writing was a huge aspect of life during the 1940s with so many loved ones separated due to the war.  The kit includes some papers that can be trimmed and scored/folded to create pretty airmail style envelopes.  Just cut them out and score on the designated lines.  


These Fold & Go Airmail Envelope Sheets are printed on the same high quality linen cardstock as our other patterned papers!  

The kit includes a total of 12 Fold & Go Airmail Envelope sheets:

  • (3) A2 floral flap Fold & Go Airmail Envelopes (finished size: 5-3/4" x 4-1/2")
  • (3) A2 plain Fold & Go Airmail Envelopes (finished size: 5-3/4" x 4-1/2")

  • (3) Enclosure plain Fold & Go Airmail Envelopes (finished size: 4-1/4" x 2-5/8")


Paper lace trim

These paper lace strips are reminiscent of the papers that ladies trimmed their kitchen cupboards with during the 1940s era.  They are made from thin paper similar to the paper doilies you can find at the store nowadays.  The delicate and intricate details are the perfect finishing touch for any project.  In the kit you will receive two of these white paper strips, each one measuring 3" wide and about 39" long.  This gives you just shy of 6-1/2 feet of trim to play with!


Blue trim

This printed bias tape with a real crochet edge detail is just the perfect thing to bring a 1940s touch to your projects.  The fabric is printed with a pretty floral in blues, greens and reds.  You will receive a full yard of this trim, measuring 5/8" wide.



These sweet resin buttons are similar to embellishments you would find on a variety of items back in the day.  The pretty aqua color is the perfect complement to the other elements of this vintage-styled kit.  Three of these bows are included, each measuring about 1" x 3/4".


Red trim

There is a second style of bias tape with crochet edge included in the kit, this one a beautiful, vibrant red polka dot!  One yard of this is included as well, measuring the same 5/8" wide.



This sweet little 1940s style button collection is assembled just for you by Betsy!  The colors are the perfect thing to be used along with the pretty papers.  The different styles are truly unique and will be a great thing to have in your paper crafting collection!  The collection includes a total of 15 buttons (3 each of 5 colors), each averaging about 1/2" in diameter.  



Something about these charming mulberry flowers just makes you smile.  The detail and colors are a great addition to this kit.  Each individual flower measures about 1/2" in diameter.  The colors are in bouquets of 5 flowers each.  Here is an overview of how many of each color your receive.  

  • (1) Red Mulberry Flower bouquet, 5 flowers total
  • (1) Yellow Mulberry Flower bouquet, 5 flowers total
  • (2) Denim Mulberry Flower bouquets, 10 flowers total
  • (2) Light Blue Mulberry Flower bouquets, 10 flowers total

Now that we have gone over many of the details of the "Nostalgic Notions" Kit, let me share a few projects with you that that the team has created!



Betsy says,"I simply love almost anything from the 1940s era.  I find it fascinating in many ways — from the monumental historical events, to the kitschy design trends.  Many of you enjoyed the 1940s Stamp-A-Faire mini kit from last year and requested that it be expanded into a full kit.  I was more than happy to oblige that request!  This kit is just filled with pretty little things reminiscent of that era — inspired by vintage linens, fabrics and notions from that time.  There are some intricate button dies that I think you’ll have fun embellishing, pretty floral stamps, and more!"

    While I didn’t participate in Stamp-a-faire, I was excited to learn that each decade’s stamps and dies might be available for purchase at a later date. I checked each following month for the 1940s stamps and dies, and was happy to purchase them when they became available. I love that this theme has been expanded with Nostalgic Notions. Betsy, as always, has done a superb job of creating a fantastic kit, and the designers have created exceptional projects showcasing the wonderful designs and elements of this kit.

  • 342
    Nancy M says:

    Betsy evoked the feeling of the 1940s so well in both the kit and her card descriptions that she has convinced me to “make do and mend.” Yes, that means I am going to use the supplies that I already own, but work with the kit’s color scheme and pretend that I’m using Nostalgic Notions. If I win the gift certificate, though, I wouldn’t have to pretend. Thank you for the chance.
