The autumn inspiration continues today, with a bit of a focus on gratitude.  No matter how good or bad things might be going in our lives at any given time, we've all got much to be grateful for and so, today's new product introductions will make it easier than ever to foster a grateful heart, by creating cards and gifts that say thank you as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday.  We're grateful for you and we're happy to be bringing you products that will allow you to express your gratitude to others.

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, Color Pop: Autumn!


Whip up some pretty autumn projects that really pop!  Start with one of the neutral-colored papers in the kit, and add pops of color using the included multi-step stencils.  Create pretty patterned papers and accents in any color combination your heart desires!  Add even more color and detail using the Color Pop: Autumn stamps from the kit.  Coordinating dies and some pre-printed cut outs offer up even more layering options!

Color Pop: Autumn Kit includes:

  • Color Pop: Autumn mini stamp set + label
  • Color Pop: Autumn die collection
  • Color Pop: Autumn paper collection (14 A2 sheets)
  • Color Pop: Autumn stencil collection (set of 4)

The Color Pop: Autumn Kit will be available for purchase on August 15th!

Check out this video Betsy put together showcasing how many of the items in the kit work together!


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


This little stamp set packs a lot of punch!  You can layer them right on top of the designs you create with the coordinating stencils.  You will love the results you get with these! They literally make your projects pop! The sweet little sentiments are fantastic too! Here are some measurements for your reference…

  • Bountiful, 2-3/8" x 5/8"
  • Blessings, 1-1/4" x 1/4"
  • Largest leaf veins, 1-3/8" x 1-3/8"
  • Smallest leaf veins, 1/4" x 1/2"


Betsy created a die collection to coordinate with the stencils & stamps, 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.

This kit includes a total of 9 dies:

  • Bountiful, 3-1/8” x 1"
  • Berries, 1-3/4” x 1-1/5”

  • Acorn, 1/2” x 1/2”


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 and stencils.  The detail is just breathtaking in person!  And the pretty autumn color palette? Nothing short of amazing! The Color Pop: Autumn paper collection contains 14 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") sheets, 1 sheet each of 14 designs and it is printed on our signature white linen paper.

This unique three layer stenciling system is sure to be one of your best craft purchases EVER!  By adding each layer in a different color, you build a beautiful background!  Think of the endless color combinations!  You can even use these with the reverse papers included in the patterned paper collection!
