September Release Wrap Up + Make It Market: All Through the House Sneak Peek...

Good morning!  Well, we've made it to the end of the September Papertrey Ink countdown!  It's definitely been a whirlwind and I think I need to go clean something now.  :-)

I have a few more projects to share with you today, but before I do, I have a little peek of something that I'm pretty excited about...this year's full Make It Market holiday kit! 


This year's full kit is called All Through the House.  There are so many different uses built into the kit.  It all starts out with a basic Matchbox die...then build a scene, inside or out.  Or use it as a gift card holder, ornament, package topper and more.  Plus, everything was designed with card and tag applications in mind as well.  Like last year, there will be two kits.  The main kit has all of the stamps, dies, and papers.  The All Through the House Trimmings kit is filled with some fun miniatures, trims, and embellishments.  The scene building options alone will have you busy crafting for hours!  I can't wait to show you everything in full in a few weeks.  The full reveal will take place on September 30, and the kit will be available to purchase on October 1st from Papertrey Ink.  There will be lots of projects and a few video for the reveal on the 30th!

Now that we got that out of the way, here are the rest of my September release projects...

First up is a card using Dawn's new Deck the Halls set.  I did some inset diecutting on the wreath and the bow.  I also created a tag using the new Square Petite Ornament die.


I diecut just one section of the ornament and trimmed along the score lines.  I sandwiched two of them together, with the solid rectangle in between, which was stamped with a sentiment and bits of the wreath from Deck the Halls.

Next up is something kind of fun made with Maile's new Treetops Glisten set.  This set is super fun to play around with.  Here I stamped a few of the different trees around that cute sentiment, which was diecut and popped up with some foam.


I really like all of the multi-step details that are included in the set.  I added a strip of the kraft dot paper along the top, which is from the Treetops Glisten paper pad.

Here's one more card using the Make It Market Holiday Folk Mini kit that I forgot to share the other day.  It was one of my favorites and I can't believe I missed posting it.  Oh well, you get to see it today instead.  :-)


I used the In the Meadow hills dies to create some snowbanks for the polar bear.  I diecut and stamped a couple of the trees from the set and planted them in the snow.  I added a little cardinal to the bear's nose and stamped a sentiment from the set.

And last, but not least, we're going to just out of holiday mode and into get well mode.  Here's a card made with the new Keep It Simple: Surgery and Tucked In: Get Well, along with the previously released You've Been Framed: Oval set.


I started off by stamping the "healing wishes" sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink, then added several different elements from the You've Been Framed: Oval set above and below the sentiment.  After I was finished stamping, I embossed the You've Been Framed: Oval die, so that the frame was impressed around the sentiment and around the edges of the panel.


The inside is stamped with one of the sentiments from Tucked It: Get Well, along with some elements from the You've Been Framed: Oval set.
