Here are my projects created with the Make it Market: Don't Forget to Write kit:


This kit is really a card makers dream. Make beautiful cards to send to loved ones or create a beautiful set of stationery to give as a gift.


First up are these sweet cards. I mainly used the die cut elements in the set to put this card together. The preprinted elements are just so pretty and fun to put together! I did stamp the "my love" on a strip of kraft cardstock that I notched the end to add to the card. The card base is a die that is included in the kit and I know I will pull it out again to use - the scalloped edge is so pretty.


How about that great pen that is included in the set? You would give it as a gift with a stationery set... or keep it for yourself for writing out heartfelt messages and addressing envelopes.


For this set of cards, I pulled out my inks and stamped the elements. The kraft cardstock based is stamped with Fresh Snow ink flowers and that was just perfect for adding the main stamped piece.


The flowers are really easy to stamp up in the multiple colors and I love all the extra details like the striped border and the fancy flourishes for the corners on the die cut piece. 


I put together a stationery set for my Hana - her 13th birthday is actually today! She very much has been falling in love with paper crafting and stationery too (we might have a little bit of this around the house!) and I thought it would be fun for her to have her own personalized set that is a bit more grown up. Her favorite color is purple and so this set fell together just perfectly.


I made up some cards for her to send a sweet note with a combination of Winter Wisteria and Amethyst Allure. There is a purple combination of flowers in the preprinted elements that was just perfect to include.


I also made up some flat notecards using the flower stamps and the Journal Accessories stamp set to add lines. The stencils included in the kit are perfect for adding a monogram and I did that on the stamped note cards. I also made up some monogram stickers on a white adhesive sheet that I punched out with a circle punch. The label stickers that I included will be perfect for adding an address onto for the envelope.


You definitely need a box to fit all of the stationery set elements into and there are some templates included in the kit that are easy to assemble. I added a monogram element to the box band to personalize it for Hana.


Everything tucks perfectly inside the box for storage and you really don't even need to wrap up the box for a gift.


Remember that there is only a limited amount of kits available so be sure to log on to order on May 1st, 10PM ET so you don't miss out! You don't want to miss this!

Thank you for stopping by today - I will be back again very soon with more stamping inspiration to share!
