Thanks, Linda

  99. Hi Mary!

    I just love your blog! Thanks for sharing your beautiful ideas and artistry.

    Debra

  100. Congratulations! And thanks for the chance to win!! My favorite is the My Digital Studio…can’t wait to play with it!

As far as my favorite item from the Holiday Mini, it is my latest “go-to” set, Autumn Splendor! And Mary, here’s to the next million! Hugs back at ya!

  102. Wandering words is my favorite, or more specifically the “Happy Christmas to all …” stamp in this set. The Santa and reindeer stamp bring back so many memories of Christmas’ past – it’s so vintage looking. I so excited to use it on cards, and scrapbook pages, especially the old ones of years gone by.
    Congrats Mary on over 1,000,000 visitors.
    Michelle

Digital Scrapbook – that will be a great new challenge. There are just too many wonderful new ideas to pick just one! Congrats!

  105. Wow Mary. Congrats on a job well done. My favorite item in the Mini is the My Design Studio. A lot of bang for your buck!

  106. Mary, Mary … how can I choose but one fav item?! My choice is ‘Yuletide Christmas’ stamp set. My son has been collecting nutcrackers for 25 years and I cannot wait to make his Christmas card using this set. Keep up the awesome work!

  112. barbara j fiereck hudak

    I would have to say the elegant Snowflakes stamp set is my fav…and the shimmering paint which I havent’ ordered, yet. Thank you for the candy! My sweet tooth is hungry for it! Have a safe holiday!

  113. Mary,

    I recently subscribed to your blog and love getting updates on all of your posts. Your work is always beautiful!

    Congrats on reaching 1,000,000 visits…that is awesome! And thanks for offering the blog candy, very generous. This holiday mini is absolutely great with so many things I love, but I would say that my favorite is the patterned pines stamp set that is a level one hostess set. This is a must have for me.

  114. Marlene Heringer

    I don’t know if I can choose only one! The texture and subtle color of the Christmas Cocoa paper however swayed me to choose it as my favorite. The red gives it just enough pop to brighten anyone’s holiday. Love your blog.

  115. My favorite from the Holiday Mini is Wandering words. Thanks for the offer and the inspiration. I’m more thankful for the inspiration.

  116. I love everything in the new mini!!!! But if I have to pick a fav it would be the christmas tree die. It is too cute!! Love, love, love your blog.

  117. This is the best Holiday Mini catalog I can remember. 40 pages of beautiful new products. But if I have to choose one it would be the Patterned Pines hostess set.

  118. The favorite..can I have more than one? Since it’s a new item (new toy to play with!), the favorite has to be the treat cups. Thanks for all your fantastic ideas!

  119. Wow… Congratulations on so many hits! Obviously, you are a hit πŸ˜€ As for my favorite thing in the mini, that’s a hard one because there are so many awesome things in there. If I HAD to choose, it would probably be either Serene Snowflakes or the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper… Love them both!

  120. Mary, thank you for sharing all your wonderul ideas with us.
    My favorite in the holiday mini is the christmas card on the front cover that uses the sweet treat cups. I love to see all the different ways they are being used.

  121. Your blog is awesone. Congrats on a million hits. My fave in the holiday mini is Snow Buddies. Thanks for all you do.

  122. Sarah Bradford

    My favourite thing in the new mini is the decor element blocks. I love reading your blog! Sarah

  123. Thank you for continuously sharing and creating! I always visit your blog to learn more… My new favorite from the Holiday Mini is the Night & Day DSP. I love black and white – it’s about time SU came out with black and white DSP! Congrats on your million (and counting) blog hits!

  124. Hi Mary, I came on to thank you for the holiday mini and saw that you had offered some really neat goodies to some lucky stamper…

    But you do have a dificult requirement, because this catalog had so many things in it I liked and it’s hard to choose! The Beary Best Friends set is so cute. I really like the Gifts of the Earth and Autumn Splendor sets and some of the Grateful Greetings… but I think I like best the Sweet Centers and the accessories. It would be so neat for school treats.

    Congratulations, love your site and am glad to have been among those 1,000,000 visitors!

  125. congratulations mary!! you’ll reach another million in no time. thank you for the examples and the inspiration. oh, and my favorite thing in the holiday mini is definitely the sweet treat cups…genius!!

    Congrats on 1 million visitors! I know I’ve helped contribute to that number, because I love seeing your new creations and I know that you’ll keep me up-to-date on the latest SU! happenings.

    If I could buy only one thing out of the Holiday Mini, it would be Delightful Decorations. Okay, and the coordinating punch. But that’s two things. πŸ™‚

  131. It is very hard to pick a favorite because I love all the Halloween Stamps… but if I have to choose ONE Twick or Tweet (116497) and of course Night & Day designer stationery to go with it (116768)

    Love in Creativity!!

  134. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creative work! I am always impressed! There’s lots to love in the holiday mini! On the affordable end, I really love that new ornament punch! On the more expensive end, I can’t wait to try out the new Digital Studio! I got frustrated scrapbooking & quit when I discovered how much more I enjoyed cardmaking. But I’m wondering if I’d be happier & more productive digiscrapping! Becky K

  171. Chris R. from Iowa

    Congratulations – I know I have sure visited your site a lot! Here’s to many more! My favorite item in the mini catalog – ohh that is hard. I love the snowflakes, the Day & Night paper is fantastic but something about the little bird with tweet or treat or whatever it says just makes me giggle. Plus the skeleton withe dog would make a fun little pack of dog biscuits for my guys to give to the neighbor dogs. I adopted a basset hound from a rescue league last month and this would be fun to give his foster dad and the other canines he has and fosters. To think, I am not one for halloween at all!

    Chris R. from Iowa

  172. Amazing milestone Mary, CONGRATS! You are showing Stampin’ Up! how it is done πŸ™‚ Christmas Cocoa DSP tops my list of faves in the holiday mini, though like every addict, I want it all!

    Cindy S.

  182. Congratulations on your milestone! I’ve admired your work for a long time! My favorite product is the Night and Day Specialty Design Series Paper because it has a houndstooth page, which is the signature design for my alma mater – the University of Alabama. Roll Tide, and thanks for a chance to win!

  183. Bonnie Hooker

    Congratulations, Mary,on reaching the 1,000,000 heiress club! I really like your blog, and return at least a couple of times a week, even with the demands of a full-time family and a full-time job!

    My favorite item in the Holiday Mini has to be the stamp from the Gifts of the Earth set which says: “For all the good gifts that your kindness imparts, remind us, dear Lord, to give thanks with our hearts.”

    Thank you, Mary, for your kindness and gifts, and thank you, Lord, for Mary.

  184. I like Twick or Tweet the best I think! Hard to decide. Congrats on all the hits. I love your blog and check it out regularly for inspiration πŸ™‚

  185. A million! Wow. If only you had a dollar for every visitor πŸ™‚ Keep bringing on the good stuff and we’ll all come back a million more times. I know I will.

    My favorite product from the winter mini is the treat cups. Many years ago, I started saving the blister packs from product packages, but at that time, there weren’t things like nestabilities to make those perfect circles. I had the idea, I just couldn’t make them look nice. I’ve had those saved so long that even though I now have my nesties, I forgot all about my blister packs. It will be nice to have a whole set that matches for when I give treats to co workers etc.

    Can’t wait until I get mine. There are always those awesome sizzix dies and embossing folders as well. Oh, lets face it, I could make a list that goes on and on with all my ‘favorites’

  186. Donna Coffman

    My favorite would have to be the serene snowflakes. I don’t like the real things but do I ever love the samples I have been seeing. Thank you for all your lovely ideas on your blog, it is very helpful to me.
    Donna

  187. Mary, Congratulations on such a milestone. It won’t be long before you hit 2,000,000. How do you pick just one thing as a favorite from the holiday mini. I love all of it. As I am sure you do too! I guess if I was limited and could only purchase one thing from the mini it would have to be the Sweet Treat Cups. Oh my you can run a muck with endless ideas. I am having a lot of fun creating cards and gifts for my friends and family using the Sweet Treat Cups.

  188. Congratulations, Mary! I’m a loyal fan.

  189. Congratulations on the blogging milestone Mary! You are officially a member of the millionairs club! That and your new studio are as good a reason as I can think of for a party. Thanks for providing the party and the gifts πŸ˜€

    You do love to ask the tough questions though. Favorite Product? O Christmas Tree die, Holy Family, Charming and of course the new MDS all caught my eye and had me jumping up and down when this mini surfaced. I love pretty much everything in it! And what didn’t strike my fancy at first has through the samples out there in blogland captured my heart in the end. Good think we have this mini until January!

    Thanks for taking the million hits on our behalf :D!

    Hugs and blessings – Jean

  198. Jacquie McCully

    Oh, no, Mary! It’s like Lays potato chips where you can’t eat one….I can’t pick just one! I love the Patterned Pines and Snow Buddies Hostess Sets, and I love the Day & Night and Autumn Meadows papers! SU’s papers are gorgeous this year! I also love Berry Christmas and Delightful Decorations with the coordinating ornament punch. How fun! Serene Snowflakes and the snowflake rub-ons are just beautiful! I’m feeling glittery just looking at them! It’s one of SU’s best minis ever! Congrats to you on your 1,000,000 counter. I think I’ve got to be 1,000 of those! hee hee Happy stampin’ everyone! :o)

  199. It’s very hard to decide which is my favorite item. I love the paint, the paper, the ornament punch w/the matching rubs and stamp set.. which one to choose.. I would have to say the Designer paper since the possibilities are endless.

  200. Congratulations Mary! That’s amazing! Thanks for a chance to win. My favorite product is the Pawsitively Prints DSP. Super cute paper is always a weakness!

    Gladys

    My Favorite new product would have to be the new Stamp Set; Serene Snowflakes!!!!

  204. Congrats I love your blog! My favorite item in the holiday mini is the new ornament punch!
    jennifer

  205. Wow, nice candy πŸ™‚ I can decide my favorite but it is nerrowed down to Sweet treat cups and shimmer paint.

  206. Hands down winner is the new black and white (Night and Day) DSP! I’ve been waiting for that for ages, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

    So, 1,000,000 hits? I’m sure I’ve been responsible for at least 600,000! I adore your clean lines and use your projects for inspiration on a daily basis. In fact, your comment about experimenting (in Stampin’ Discuss) and “just look at your trash can” made me feel so much less inhibited to try something and not worry about wasting paper!

    Thanks for all you do!

    Priscilla

  207. Connie Van Hooser

    Congrats Mary!
    Since I am a”Paper Addict” I love the paper in the “mini” the Christmas Cocoa is to die for! Also the Night and Day is great too. The value is there too, little boutiques around town get $2.00 a sheet for the “flocked” and specialty paper. When you can have everything coordinate like Stampin’up papers just makes it easier to use. Evertything in the book this time is on my “wish list”
    Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
    Connie

  208. Barbarta Comfort

    I think Delightful Decorations is great with the matching ornament punch and rub-ons! Too cute!!
    Keep up the great blog!!!

  210. Congratulations! That’s awesome! I love the new Holiday Mini Catalog! I love so many things but my favorite is the Sweet Centers Stamp set & cups! Too cute!

  213. Wow, that is so cool 1,000,000! But you definitely deserve it. Your blog is stupendous. My favorite item is the Christmas Cocoa DSP. Yes, I know I should say the Digital Studio but I am apprehensive about it till I learn more. Then I bet I won’t ever want to do anything else.

  250. I LOVE cold and cuddly! What can I say, I have a 4 year old and almost 1 year old and the 4 year old always wants to stamp with me…or do whatever crafty thing I am doing.

    It came as a shock to her the day she realized that she did not actually have to craft each and every day!

  251. Oops, me again! I forgot to tell you my favorite holiday mini item. I have ordered the leaf set. I love autumn, and anything to do with the trees. thanks Kathy N.

  252. Congratulations on over 1 million viewers although I am not surprised. You are so talented. I enjoy viewing your website on a regular basis to see what beautiful creation you have come up with next. My favorite new product is the ornament punch with the coordinating delightful decorations stamp set. This makes for quick and easy holiday cards. The blog candy would be amazing to win.

  253. Mary,
    I enjoy viewing your art work. One million, wow! Thanks for the chance to win the super cool blog candy. Kathy N.

  254. Oh my goodness, congrats, Mary! I’m still buried in a mountain of boxes, but I try to take a peek at your blog whenever I can to stay inspired. This might be odd, but my fave from the new Mini is the single stamp “A Brand New Year” – I rarely see any really nice New Year’s stamps and, with my big move this year, I can only imagine what the next one holds for me! Thanks for all your support and amazing projects!

  255. Congratulations! Your Blog is AMAZING and I check it out frequently for inspiration. What isn’t my favorite in the Holiday Mini! I think the Build a Bear products are my fav, there are so many things you can do with them.

    It’s a tie between Cold & Cuddly or Gobble, Gobble, but Gobble, Gobble has to be the winner. There aren’t very many cute turkey stamps and this one is hands down the best I’ve seen. I love the woodcut look!

  295. Jessica Davis

    My favorite new set from the Holiday Mini Catalog is definitely Twick or Tweet. This year, I adopted my first dog ever, and fell in love with him. I never understood the love that people had for their dogs until Boz came into my life πŸ™‚ I loved Boz so much, that only a few months later, Nando joined our little family. They are both rescue dogs. Boz from Tennessee and Nando from Puerto Rico! So after I saw the stamp with the Skeleton and the dog hanging off his leg, I just HAD to have it! I will color the dog to look exactly like Boz (he’s too small to look like Nando) and send it to all my family and friends. I can’t wait, I just got the set in the mail!

  296. Dear Mary,

    Not surprised that you are hitting 1Million hits on your blog. It is one of my favorites and I hit it everyday for creative inspiration.

    The ornament punch and Decorative Ornaments stamp set are my favorites from the mini. I feel the creative possibilities are endless with these products.

    Thank you again for your creative inspiration each day.

Here’s to your next million hits!

  541. Wow what an accomplishment! My favorite new item in the Mini is the Shimmer Paint!!

  542. Mary:

    Your blog with out a doubt is very well written, inspiration, creative and you share so much of yourself with every project you post. You work very hard to keep us up to date and give us all the info needed to recreate and inspire our own creative flow. Thank you so much for that! I know it is very time consuming.
    I will be glad to take some credit for a ton of those hits!!LOL!! congrats you deserve it!!

  543. wow!!! you are a celebrity!

    How can a person just pick one favorite thing? I love the specialty Designer series paper on page 21, and the patterned Pines on page 4… and of course, the list could just go on and on….

    I love your blog and inspiration…. thank you for sharing so much… it seems to me we should be sending you candy!

  544. Wow! 1,000,000!!! That’s quite an achievement. I’m not much for holiday stamping….mostly birthdays, anniversaries, and other “personal” type occasions. But I must admit I *LUV* the Serene Snowflakes! Aren’t they gorgeous!!! I’m also ‘curious’ about the shimmer paint – do you think it’s like the former Lumiere? I loved that stuff!! Keep on going…love your blog!!

  545. I like so many things out of the new Holiday Mini, but my most favorite thing is My Digital Studio. Just got it yesterday and am enjoying it. Congrats on having so many visitors!

    CONGRATULATIONS! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas with us. My favorite set from the mini catalog is Serene Snowflakes. Thanks for offering the blog candy.

  547. Congratulations! It seems like yesterday when I predicted 100000 and you doubted me! Someone once said that the first million is the hardest, so the next one will be easy-peasy!

    I have a hard time deciding which Holiday Mini item to vote for since my order hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m going with Berry Christmas. I can see some non-holiday, retro type uses for this.

  548. Good for you!!! My favorite has to be the wandering words..just delightful!!!! Sara

  549. I love, love, love getting your daily posts. You are an inspiration to me as a new demonstrator! Thank you!

    As for my favorite product..It is the Sweet Treat Cups with the Sweet Centers stamps. Love it!

    My favorites in the Mini catalog are the Autumn Splendor stamps and the Autumn Meadows designer paper. Oh, I am so ready for fall. These are beautiful and I can just see them on my note cards.

    Thanks for the Mimi catalog too. I just received mine and have been reading it from cover to cover.

    Happy Fall—

  551. The Magnetic Gift Boxes on pp 33. Did you know that they perfectly match the Treat Bags on PP 159 of the SU Big catalog and idea book?

    Since I give mostly gift cards for the holidays since most of my family live in other parts of the country, I’m ordering a ton of both the Gift Boxes and the Treat Bags to have on hand for decorating.

  552. Congrats for makim 1000000!
    My favorite product (hard to deceide) is the set of wandering words.
    Congrats again!

  553. Congrats on 1 million! I would have to say my favorite is the Delightful Decoration Stamp Set.

  554. Carla Prediger

    Congratulations on making 100000!
    My favorite product (hard to decide!!!) is the set of wandering words.

  555. I love the Delightful Decorations on page 24 and that they have a punch that coordinates with it – it makes it look so much better than cutting freehand.

  556. My favorite product (although I haven’t gotten to play with it yet!) has to be My Digital Studio… I can’t WAIT to try it out!

  557. I love the ornament punch!

  558. Thank you….for being my daily inspiration. I’ve only been a demonstrator for 2 months but I have learned more by ‘watching’ you than anyone. I see your smile on every card.

    Congratulations on reaching One Million! You should be so proud!

  559. Patterned Pines without a doubt!

  560. Definitely Serene Snowflakes. Classy stamp set.

    Congratulations on your upcoming 1,000,000. I can certainly understand why you have so many hits. Love your blog

  561. Congrats Mary! very exciting!! My fave has to be the necklace/charm & chain. Very cool idea. An even better idea? …. Me winning!! LOL

  562. Congrats Mary, how exciting!!!

  563. My favorite product in the Holiday Mini is definitely the Delightful Decorations stamp set and coordinating punch. I’ve already used it and love it!!

    (I was at your blog earlier today and noticed the party blog banner that indicates blog candy, and wondered where it was! Not more than 30 minutes later, voila!)

    Congrats on making 1 million!
