Our Make It Market Mini Kits are designed for those who love the idea of Betsy Veldman's popular kits, but are a bit more budget conscience.  As another perk, these new kits will NOT be limited edition, they will be a regular item carried in our store.  These will be released throughout the year randomly, not on a set schedule, so it will be a surprise each month as to whether or not there will be a new one to collect!

Now a little bit more of the Make It Market Mini Kit being released this month, Holiday Folk!


The Make It Market: Holiday Folk Mini Kit is filled with classic holiday images with a folk art twist.  The gorgeous multi-step tree and large evergreen boughs will create striking focal points on your holiday cards and tags.  The papers in the kit feature pre-printed elements that can be easily diecut for quick and easy  holiday projects.  The tiny wooden stars and colored twine are the perfect finishing touches for this rustic, yet elegant holiday mini kit. This is an excellent one-stop-shop collection that will give you hours of holiday crafting fun!

Holiday Folk Kit

Holiday Folk Kit includes:

  • Holiday Folk stamp set
  • Holiday Folk die collection
  • Holiday Folk paper collection (nine A2 sheets)

  • 100+ small wooden veneer stars (1/4" to 1/2")

The Holiday Folk Kit will be available for purchase on September 15th!

Here is a closer look at each of the individual items in this kit!


The stamp set , even alone, is just so beautifully done.  The detail and multi-color options for the evergreen accents are just incredible!  And all of the animals have so much detail built in, they can really stand alone if need be!  So much mixing and matching can happen here!  The set contains a total of 28 images.  

  • large evergreen bough, 3-5/8” x 1-1/4”
  • tree, 3/4” x 2-1/2”
  • “joyful holiday greetings” sentiment, 7/8” square
  • large bell, 5/8” x 3/4”
  • polar bear, 1-5/8” wide 1-1/4”


There are dies to coordinate with nearly every image in the set so you can layer to your heart's delight!  There are even little stars that can be added to embellish the tree, the garland and more!  

Paper and dies

Many of the dies also coordinate with images found on the papers.  Betsy included outlines on the sheets so you can easily place the dies on top and run through your die-cutting machine for perfect cuts every time.


To go along with her stamp set and dies, Betsy has designed a paper collection that draws from the images found in the stamp set.  The detail is just breathtaking in person!  The Holiday Folk paper collection contains 9 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") sheets, 1 sheet each of 9 designs and it is printed on our signature white linen paper.

Coordinates with the following colors - New Leaf, Pure Poppy, Pinefeather, Ocean Tides, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist and Soft Stone.


You will love using these little wooden stars to accent all of your projects!  They are the perfect thing to help carry through that folk art look!  Made out of a thin wood veneer, they vary in size from 1/4" to 1/2".  You will be getting over 100 of them in the kit, so you will be able to get a lot of use out of them!


These rustic twines are a great addition too.  In classic red and green holiday colors, they coordinate well with the papers in the kit.  You can wrap it around cards, accent a tag or whatever else you dream up!

Holiday greenery, the cutest, wee little ornament images you’ve ever seen, as well as fun little folk art design elements will allow you to build your own holiday folk art projects with ease!"

Betsy says, "Ever since the Wee Folk kit was released, I’ve been itching to have a holiday version, so I’m excited that it’s finally here!  All of the things I loved about stamping with the Wee Folk set…the animals, the pretty laurel, and all of the little details with their mirrored companions…are also in the Holiday Folk kit, but with a holiday twist, of course!  I have lots of projects to show you — I hope you’ll stop over and check them out!"

Danielle says, "Once again Betsy makes cardmaking so easy with her Make It Market Mini Kits! These pre-printed papers are just adorable, but if you know me, I need a little dimension. Simply die cutting a few extra pieces from the pre-printed papers and popping them up with a foam tape did the trick, and look what fabulous cards it makes! Whether it's a quick and easy style that you prefer or trying out many techniques, this kit has it all for you."
