Here is a peek at my projects:
 This kit just makes me think of my grandma, and how she still corresponds with me via mail.  She always carefully picks out a beautiful card, and then proceeds to tell me what her & grandpa have been up to on the farm, and how the weather has been.  I like to think that my love for cardmaking, and still sending them to family & friends is a trait that I've gotten from her.

The Nostalgic Notions kit is full of feminine patterns & beautiful color combinations.  I am in love with just about every piece of it, but my favorite is the patterned paper.  It has a lovely linen texture to it, and each sheet is just gorgeous.

Here is a look at each of my projects for today:
Another favorite in the paper are the pre-printed buttons that can be diecut with all the different button dies in the kit.  They make for great embellishments & clusters!

I used the same design on this card as the first, but changed the color scheme.  Because you get multiple designs of each patterned paper, you can easily create some matching cards to make into a gift set!

There are also these gorgeous envelopes included that you just trim & adhere together.  They match everything perfectly (of course), and look beautiful decorated as well!  For this one I just added a little bit of patterned paper, and then created hook using a diecut button & real button.

I've had so much fun using the Make It Market: Nostalgic Notions kit, and foresee using it often in the future.  The sentiments are classic & beautiful, and the possibilities of the layered flowers are endless!

I know that I can't wait to check out what the rest of the team created, so be sure to check them all out! 
Thanks for checking out my post today!  I would love to hear what you think of the kit & my projects.  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Until later,
