Here are my projects created with the Make it Market: Garden Gate kit:


I love all the options to create that this kit offers from the stamps to the printed papers to the stencils to the die cuts. There are so many great things to play with and the mail theme is just so much fun and so perfect!


Here is the card that I shared a peek of earlier in the month. I used the preprinted papers and die cut out the mailbox and then added some fun details with other preprinted elements. I love the little slit in the mail box so that you can tuck hat ever you want right into it! The snowfall in the background in done with one of the stencils and I added some fun elements from the trimmings kit: the teeny screw on the mailbox flag and then pine sprigs that I cut from the pine garland.


This cut mini mail box is a part of the trimmings kit as well and it is just the cutest! I perched the cardinal on the top of the box and added a little note tucked under its beak. How fun to tuck some of the sweet little tiny messages into to send some holiday cheer in a unique way to someone special.


What is even more fun is the little letterbox that you can assemble. I did mine up in kraft and Pure Poppy cardstock with some added details done with the coordinating stencils and some Fresh Snow ink. Besides the preprinted papers, you can stamp your own images with the coordinating stamp sets to add the perfect custom touch. I did that here with the candy cane, ornament, pine spray, and mini Season's Greetings sign.

The slot that you can add at the top of the letterbox is perfectly sized for the mini envelopes and notecards that are included the kit.


There are some envelopes that have spaces for you to stamp your own designs and messages onto like I did here or you can choose from so many great pre printed options - or do a mixture of both!


The little notecards have an option to die cut a ribbon that allows you to tuck a gift card into it. I know we will have a number of gift cards to give away and so this quick and easy solution is perfect and so much fun at the same time.


Remember that there is only a limited amount of kits available so be sure to log on to order on October 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!
