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 conscious.  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 Pin-Ups!


Create adorable treats, wraps, cards, and favors with the Holiday Pin-Ups mini kit, designed to turn simple clothespins into an assortment of adorable holiday characters!  These cuties are sure to bring a smile to your recipients’ faces — not to mention yours when you see how quick and easy this kit makes it to create adorable projects.  Use the stamps, dies, and papers included in the kit to embellish the included clothespins — but it doesn’t stop there, because you can use them on holiday cards and tags, too!

Here's a short video that Betsy put together showcasing how easy it is to assemble these amazing holiday beauties!


Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Elf Mail Ensemble

I don't know about your house, but here the Elf on the Shelf is a *big deal*.  So I thought it would be fun to use the new little elf included in the Holiday Pin-Ups kit to create an Elf Mail ensemble!


I designed these postcards that could be left throughout the month of December with notes from our elf.  I was able to create an entire North Pole scene by using the elements in the Petite Places: Holiday Lane set.  I also added the air mail arrow from Postmarks.  Note that the focal point layer was adhered to our new Pure Poppy + White Basics diagonal stripe paper for that perfect postcard look.  


I accented the back with some additional stamps from Postmarks, leaving plenty of room for a note.

Elf clip


This little clothespin elf is the perfect thing to hold the postcards to the fridge when they arrive.  A little piece of magnetic tape on the back did just the trick!  

Now that you have seen a few of my creations, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!
