All-Through-the-House-Webview

The All Through the House stamp set just has a wonderful retro-vintage vibe about it, a special collection of images that evoke the charm of holidays in the past.  From a sweet Santa, to a stylish snowman and even a fireplace with all the trimmings, every traditional holiday icon is covered here.  The multi-step options give you the ability to do tons of mixing and matching.  With so many combinations, you will never tire of this set!  A few measurements for you:

All-Through-the-House-dies

The main die collection gives you a few of the essentials, such as the main house shape, side windows and interactive door.

House-tags3

Here you can see how the door just scores on the left hand side so once cut it can really open and close.  The door measures 1-3/4" x 7/8".

All-Through-the-House-Base-dies

Then you have the base set of dies which includes the main matchbox base as well as all kinds of other fun goodies nested inside giving you more bang for your buck. 

Gift-cards4

The base of the box once assembled measures just under 2-1/2" wide, 3-1/2" long and 7/8" deep.  A great size to hold small trinkets or even gift cards!

Mouse-house5

Also included in this particular die set is a foldable miniature gift.  You can use customize the small package with patterned paper and a few stamps or keep things really easy and cut one of the pre-printed options from the patterned paper collection.  The cool thing about this is that they aren't just for the holidays, it will work for birthdays and other celebratory milestones as well!  Check out this video that Betsy put together for the miniature gift assembly!

 

The assembled mini gift measures 5/8" on all sides.

All-Through-the-House-Box-Top-dies

The main part of this next die collection is the box top wrap that goes around the outside of the main matchbox base.  It's so helpful to have the wrap perfectly cut and scored with just one pass!  The box top wrap measures 7-1/4" x 3-1/2" before being assembled, and there is specifically 2-1/2" 3-1/2" on the top once assembled.

Gift-cards7

When you start pairing things like the window dies, door die, etc. with the box top wrap, you can see all kinds of interactive possibilities.  This video from Betsy shows you how to do some basic assembly with the matchboxes as a whole, as well as give you some options as to how you can adapt the box for different types of projects!

 

Doesn't Betsy open up so many possibilities here?  But wait, there's more!

All-Through-the-House-Frame-dies

Check out this beautiful frame and other elements included in this fourth die collection!  It measures 3-1/2" x 4-3/8" and features slits on the sides that you can run ribbon through.  You can choose to cut out the center of the frame with the included rectangle tool, measuring 2-1/4" x 3-3/8".

Shadow-box-house-dtl

The matchbox base will tuck in perfectly behind it and of course it looks beautiful as a card mat as well!  The sky is the limit with all of this!

 

Kit-Papers

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

Fancy-top-boxes5

Besides the festive patterns, the pad includes dozens of pre-printed images that you can use with the coordinating dies.  These are wonderful for quick and easy holiday creations!

Here are a few details about the All through the House paper pad…

  • The pad measures 8-1/2" x 11"
  • There are 24 sheets included, 2 sheets each of 12 designs.
  • This is printed on our signature high quality white linen cardstock.
  • The colors used in this collection are New Leaf, Pinefeather, Classic Kraft, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Ocean Tides, Smokey Shadow and Soft Stone.
  • This paper pad includes our signature wrap around cover for easy storage and reference.

NOTE: Additional pads of the All Through the House paper will be available for sale separately beginning the night of the kit release and forward, for $15 each.

The following items are included in the separate All Through the House Trimmings Kit. 

Shadow-box-tree-dtl

One of the most amazing things that Betsy sourced for the Trimmings portion of this kit collection is these amazing Petite LED Lights!  They hold so many possibilities not only for the creations made with this kit, but for the Petite Places series as well.  The lights are just thin discs that can be turned off and on with the push of a button, measuring a mere 0.75" inch wide, 1.75" long and 0.0625" high.  They even feature four different modes (steady on, fast flash, medium flash, and off).  Check out this video Betsy created that tells you a little more about using these lights with the kit.

 

You will get a minimum of 12 hours per light if left on, but many we tested ran much longer.  Four lights total come with the Trimmings kit.  You can also purchase additional sets of 4 for $8 separately in case you have some mass producing you would  like to do.  So, are you as excited about these lights as we are?!?!?

Cardinals

Betsy has truly thought of everything with the Trimmings Kit, including these miniature cardinals, sisal trees and sisal wreaths.  You get a two of the cardinals in the kit, measuring 1-1/8" long, 5/8" wide and 5/8" tall.  They are made out of a delicate felt paper with hand painted features.  The kit also includes three wreaths (1") and four trees (1-1/2" x 3/4").  After analyzing all of the projects from the team, it's little details like this that really make handmade creations so special.

Mice

Also included are these sweet little miniature mice,  Handcrafted from wood, leather and seed beads, these are a great way to make sure not a creature is stirring in your holiday house.  

Mice

You get a total of three mice and they each measure 1-3/8" x 3/8".  Look how cute they are tucked in next to the fireplace!

Lamposts

These charming lamp posts practically steal the show!  Made from a mixture of plastic and resin, these are the perfect scale for many of the elements in this kit.  Two of them are included in the kit and they measure 2-3/8" x 1/4" each.

Santa-jar1

The new cotton snow shown here is perfect for the "open" nature of many of these projects, where traditional glitter style snows would be messy and impractical.  The cotton flakes naturally bind together because of the fibers in the material, so it's easy to create snow drifts, etc.  If you want more a sparkle to it, you can add a bit of glitter like Betsy did here.  You get a whopping 0.75 oz. of this with the Trimmings Kit, which will last for LOTS of projects!

Simple-matchboxes3

It's easy to jazz up the drawer/main box portion of the matchbox with the knobs and large eyelets included.

Eyelets

The eyelets come in a set of four colors, including ten of each color (40 total).  They measure 3/16", which is perfect for threading with ribbon as a pull handle.

Knobs

A set of six miniature silver knobs can also be used on the drawer fronts.  They each measure about 3/8" once assembled and give such a polished look to the final box.

Trims

There are LOTS of trims included in the Trimmings Kit as well.  You know from seeing Betsy's work in the past that special little trims like this take her projects to whole new levels and just add that extra little something.  Includes:

  • 3 yds. 1-1/2" Red Twill Chevron Ribbon
  • 3 yds. Red Shimmer Baker's Twine
  • 1 yd. Parrot Green 1/8” velvet ribbon
  • 1 yd. Red Scalloped Trim
  • 1 yd. Light Blue Velvet Ribbon
  • 1 yd. Red/Silver Pom-pom Trim
  • 1 yd. Silver Tinsel Trim

Fancy-top-boxes6

 

The wide 1-1/2" twill ribbon works especially well with the slits in the frame die that are included in the main kit!
