Deadline is Monday, July 12 at Noon CST.  I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, July 13.

  • Picture This Clear Mount Stamp Set
  • Clear Block G (the perfect size for the stamp set above)
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 35 sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper


1.  Hostess set:  Cute by the Inch (Wood Mount 116992, Clear Mount 120130).  This was a tough decision because I thought the hostess selection was the best ever.

Cute by the Inch

2.  Single stamp:  Baby Steps (Wood Mount 117092).  Simple and sweet.

Baby Steps

3.  Holiday:  Greeting Card Kids (Wood Mount 119887, Clear Mount 120633).  Surprised about this one coming from me?  I'm not a watercolor kind of girl but am ready to commit for these adorable kids.

Greeting Card Kids

4.  Got Treats (Wood Mount 119114, Clear Mount 120627).  Yep, gotta have it!  Cute, multi-purpose and killer with the Milk Carton Bigz L Die (117310)

Got Treats

5.  Funky Four (Wood Mount 113738, Clear Mount 120438).  It's the hip,  "new" version of Trendy Trees (another of my all time favorites).

Funky Four

6.  Just Believe (Wood Mount 116948, Clear Mount 120453).  If there's one set that will work beautifully for most occasions, this is it.

Just Believe

7.  Sentiments:  Curly Cute (Wood Mount 117014, Clear Mount 120510).  The new greeting stamps knocked me out. I picked Curly Cute for my list because it's affordable, versatile and the font is seriously cool. Word Play (Wood Mount 120308, Clear Mount 120651) and Fabulous Phrases (Wood Mount 117002, Clear Mount 120501) are headed this way in the UPS truck, too. 

Curly Cute

8.  Designer Series Paper:  Elegant Soir?e (117163).  Love the modern style and how it coordinates with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (119277)

Elegant Soriee

9:  Jewels.  My favorite new accessory without hesitation.  I have been waiting (and begging) for stick-on rhinestones (119246) and pearls (119247) since I began as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Thanks, SU!

Jewels and Pearls

10.  Two Step Extra Large Owl Punch (118074).  I have gotten incredible mileage out of my Two-Step Extra Large Bird Punch (117191).  I'm confident that my relationship with this adorable punch will be equally rewarding.

Owl Punch




  1. My absolute favorite has to be the big circle scallop punch. Can’t wait to get my hands on it! There are plenty more, including quite a few of the stamp sets you picked too.

  2. I love the new rhinestones and pearls. Fabulous phrases is on the top of my list. Now you got me thinking about Greeting card kids…

  3. Why do I always miss these contests? Anyhow, I LOVE the greenhouse gala DSP and the pear pizazz color. OH but my absolute favorite is the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.

  4. I love the new punch format and the fact that Stampin’ up is moving towards unmounted sets! My husband is in the Coast Guard and we move around frequently and to lessen bulk, not stash is great!

  5. I have not yet received my new catalog, but I KNOW I want the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, the butterfly punch and the new two step Owl Punch.

  6. I love the new colors, the Simply Scrappin’ kits, and the choice of clear or wood mounted on most of the sets!
    Thank you for your blog! I check it everyday and LOVE your ideas.

  7. Love the new DS paper, stamps, colors, & punches and accessories. Can’t wait until I can play with them.

  8. So much to choose from – but the first thing that comes to mind is the returning colors and the new ones. I think I am going to like the color change (when I get use to it).
    thanks for all your beautiful card ideas every day.

  9. I’m kicking myself for not getting delightfully decorative christmas ornament punch set – so I’m really happy that one is back.

  10. I LOVE the new catty. I have already highlighted everything I want, but my first order was for the new clear block caddy. Wonderful idea as I always have trouble keeping up with those things!

  11. Megan Karetny

    Definitely the Owl Punch πŸ™‚ How cute! Can’t wait to starting using it a whole “lotta” times πŸ™‚ Thanks for this!

  12. Carrie Simpson

    No one would want to read my entry if I listed ALL of my new favorites! Just a few are the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, extra large scallop circle punch, jewels and designer buttons, and the stamp sets Word Play and Notably Ornate. My wish list is a mile long! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas with us each day.
    Carrie Simpson

  13. I am really excited about the new catalog, the best ever! I right away loved the Perfect Punches and the Greenhouse Gala designer series paper. I am crazy for punches so the new extra large scallop circle is on it’s way to my house!

  14. Hi

    I love the new Sentiments stamps set #120510

Happy stamping, and thanks for the chance to win!!!

  18. I’ve looked at the New Catalog so much and there are just too many to list, however I was so impressed by the new layout of the catalog – different and easier to use in coordinating colors. The layout was just perfect. Love the “IN COLORS” sorry to see some of the old colors go, but replacement is great. So wish we would have had some new die cuts this year. I’ve started my wish list and it will take me all year to get them in my collection. Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win Blog Candy

  19. Hi Mary! Thanks for sharing your To 10 list! I love lots of the new products in the idea book but here are my favorites: the new Owl Punch, the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, the new button assortmens, Hello, You stamp set, Have a Seat stamp set, and the Aviary stamp set!

  20. I love it all, but I really like the new punches and dsp papers. I especially like the owl punch and the elegant soiree dsp paper.

  21. I’m on pins and needles waiting for the new ” Just Believe” stamp set!
    And the new DSP variety really challenges my decision making skills, I just don’t know which to get first!

    Vicki A.

  22. The new patterned papers, Brown is bringing me Blueberry Crisp and Sunny Garden. But I must have Sweet & Sour, Presto Patterns, Play Date, Lap of Luxury and Newsprint

  23. Wow – so many great new SU products! I guess if I had to pick it would be ALL of the new DSP paper and the bling – love the pearls! The embossing folders are great too…so are the punches! Thanks. Cindy

    You know you are asking the impossible question. My funds do not match my wants from the new catalog.

I couldn’t resist the new Broadstreet Alphabet! I ordered the Qwik Accents for PLAY DAY DSP, hope to create a card class. But most of all I am looking forward to seeing your creations on Stampinpretty!
    Hugs…..Love the freshness and boldness of your combinations and challeges. Miss you on split coast stampers.

  61. Janet Languidey

    I MUST get the punch cases! The first 3 on your list are also on mine! I also want Style Beautiful and EVERY color of the ribbon! I started out putting tabs on the pages where I wanted something, and found it was better to put them on the pages I didn’t want something. (I think there were 4!)

  62. My must haves from the new catalog are the two step owl punch, the funky four stamp set and the Greenhouse Gala DSP. LOVE THEM!!

  63. Hi Mary!

  76. Loretta Neighbors

    I love the new style of punches. They are so much easier to handle. The Because I Care Hostess stamp set is gorgeous! And the Greeting Card Kids stamp set is another keeper!

Got treats, Make a Monster, Aviary ..I could go on and on. I’m soo glad the catalog lasts a whole year now πŸ™‚ Liz

  79. I always have trouble saying goodbye to favorites and starting over again with something new, but then the new becomes my favorite and I’m back in the cycle. Picking 10 is pretty hard. The greeting card kids are my favorite new stamp. I am a watercolor person!

  80. Love a chance to win blog candy. Thanks.

  81. Love that razzleberry paper!!!

  82. I think my favorite thing about the new catalog is the increased number of cling stamps! I love those and am only interested in them from SU because their price is MUCH more in my budget! I also really do love the bling and several of the new colors. To the point where I started with just one thing in my shopping cart…and then before I knew it had blown $100! LOL! I’d ADORE winning your blog candy, so maybe just maybe comment #101 is going to be a winner! (wink)

  83. I can’t even begin to think of just 10 items I would like from the new catalogue. Love the paper, would like the new punches. Love the new in-colors and their sets. Stamp sets and bling and of course I need the rest of the blocks and the holder. My head is whirling just thinking about it.

  84. You inspire me! I’m just getting into scrapbooking and enjoying your blog!

  192. My number one favorite is the owl punch… How cute is that???!!

  193. I have to say I LOVE the blink and pearls…What’s a girl with out pearls- but I have an addiction to punches – I do love the low profile punches and the outline in the catalog to help you know what punch goes with the stamp. FAv new punch the 2-3/8 Inch Scallop – LOVE to layer. I love how many new clear mount stamp sets there are now – but I LOVE the Butterfly Prints – Clear-Mount Stamp set. Thanks for sharing.

  194. You hit on my two favs as well. I HAVE to have the new greeting cards kids set. I am not great at water color either, but they are tooo cute. I also love the owl punch. The card using them in the catty is adorable.

    I am so excited that so many of my favs that I did not get a chance to order are still in there too and that so many of the things I do own are in there still to show case…almost makes me consider rejoining. πŸ™‚ Loving this catalog!

    Peggy N.

  199. I agree with your choices, and always love to see whatever you choose. I’m SO WITH YOU on the rhinestones and pearls finally making an appearance in the catalog! “Cute By the Inch” can be used with the scallop square punch, or just square matted, and then added to so many DSP backgrounds, or graphics custom-made to coordinate with them.
    Thanks for sharing your creativity, Mary! I’ve learned so much from your clean graphic style. I check your blog almost every day and am never disappointed!

  200. I love so many things. I am going to have a hard time narrrowing things down for my first order. For sure some jewels and the new colors are going to be on my order. I’m trying to decide on a stamp set still, but I’m thinking Grunge Rock as I love that look and with my teen kids, it works great for cards and scrapbooks for them. Thanks for the chance at the great candy!

  201. Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy. I love your blog and visit daily to see your wonderful creations. My wish list seems endless…so many great, fresh new items it is hard to decide. I love the build a monster set, but many of your top 10 made my wish list too!

  202. We have more bling!! I am so excited abou that. I love the pearls and the rhinestones. The new DSP is great, my favorite has to be the Sunny Garden. The new stamp set that I love is much harder. There are so many. Every time I open the new catty I find something else that is new that I didn’t notice before. I love my punches and use them a lot so stamp sets that go with them are the best. Perfect Punches (pg 131) lets me use my punches.

  213. I love that not only do we have Riding Hood Red and Wild Wasabi back, we can now have the Stampin’ Markers! (Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette too!)

The owl punch is a given and going to have some clever “alternative” uses, I’m sure. I see great potential for the Three Leaves in the individual stamps. It’s difficult to stop, but that’s enough to keep one happy for a while. Thank you for your generosity with your blog followers!

I love the new pearls embelishments. I gotta have the walpaper or whatever it was called embossing folder too. I am looking forward to the new colors of watercolor crayons when they are available.

  243. The owl punch was my favorite from the very beginning.

  244. Teri M. Smith

    I love the whole book! When I got my new book it was like the whole world just kept going and I was in another world! It was filled with beautiful colors and I’m so in love with the clear stamps.

  252. Lourdes Gonzalez

    I really am in love with the texture embossing folders! Although the assortment of DSP of in-colors will be on my list soon. The Cross set with the simple sentiment is also beautiful. I have marked all my favorites, but I ran out of sticky notes so I need to get some more – there are so many choices. There are some great items in the Celebrando Creatividad too – I love that I can send those sentiments to my extended family.

  253. I love the owl punch and the stamp set Cute by the inch.

  269. I think they did a great job with the new color revolution and my first new stamp set will probably be “have a seat” but there are several that I really like.

  270. Cheryl McAskill

    WOW I do not know where to start. I believe there is not enough room to list all my favs, but there is one thing that hit my happy space…Patterns DSP asst for the color groups you get 10-12X12 (2 ea color,double sided Patterns DSP of each color group) It’s nice to get the asst instead of all just ONE color! This will help alot and save some $$. The new Specialty DSP is a beautiful Collection, Love Woodland Walk and Blueberry Criap. Cute owl punch and LUV the bat punch! Also the asst Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack is a good choice too! It’s not Ten but these are my next buys!!!

    Now to narrow it down to a few.

    Received the catalog and love it! Thank you for sharing and always being so prompt!

  291. Veronica Correa

    Word Play
    A Word for you
    Greenhouse Gala DSP
    Blueberry DSP

    I want to order everyhting now … πŸ˜‰

  297. It’s hard to pick just one, but I’ld have to say my favorite item in the new catalog is the Tag Alongs stamp set. I usually put gifts in a gift bag and the first thought I had when I saw this set was how perfect it would be to make a bunch of tags to add to gift bags. To add icing on the cake its part of SU “making a difference” program and a purchase of this set also benefits the Ronald McDonald House programs. A big win, win.

  409. I am most excited to update and fill out my card stock and ink colors. I’m also excited about a lot of the DSP… I just love DSP. I have a hard time making a card without it! Woodland Walk will be my first out of this catalog… it looks like it will be great on masculine cards.

  410. I love all of the new punches – especially the scallop ribbon border, bitty bat and the extra large scallop circle! Thanks Mary!

  411. Thanks for offering the blog candy. I love the new Color Coach, because it helps so much with the new color palette, and it is easy to use. It has helped me learn and adjust to the new color groups. Thanks again.

  412. Love the new owl punch! I am also really excited about the “Take a Sip” wheel and matching mug! Thanks for all your daily inspiration, you work is fabulous. Thanks you also for this chance to win!!

  413. I’m loving so many of the new things in the catalog that it’s hard to narrow it down, but I’m with you on the Just Believe set and I’m also really liking what I’m seeing being made with Artistic Etchings. This is a terrific new catty.

  414. Thanks for the opportunity to win some great blog candy! I really like the Just Believe stamp set. I’m also excited for the new color change, and the way to purchase just the colors I need to switch over. Plus, glad that there are rhinestones and pearls made by SU now πŸ™‚

  415. The antique brads are number one and the owl punch.

  416. Kathy Rittler

    Mary, I love the new Greenhouse Gala paper, it has wonderful colors and bold designs. I have SU punches and I love it when stamps sets work well with the punches.I have ordered Butterfly Prints and Perfect Punches to assist in quick card assembly.

  417. Awesome list! TFS! My favorite things would be the new punches and embossing folders.

  418. There are so many I want it’s hard to say, but Word Play for sentiments and Just Believe for figures, and let’s not forgt the the new IN colors…they are WOWEE! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy blog candy too.

  419. Some of my new favorites are:

    1. Homemade & to Die For along w/coordinating punch

    2. Contempo Christmas

    3. Perfect Punches

    4. A Word for You

    5. Broadsheet Alphabet

    6. Self adhesive rhinestones & pearls

    Thanks for sharing your list and the chance to win your blog candy.

  420. I just love the new owl punch. The new catalog is a really good one…8-)
    Thanks for all you share and for the chance to win.

  421. Jewels are my favorite. Now I won’t have to go to Michaels to buy them. The ribbons are my second choice. And the Just Believe stamp set is a good choice. Thanks for all you do each day.

  422. Gotta be the owl punch!!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  423. I’m loving the new colors that will be around the next two years. I also love that owl punch…not sure how I missed that while going through the catalog like 100 times! Can’t wait to decide what to order.

  424. I love the items in the new catalog! I can’t wait to order the stamp set Greeting Card Kids!

  425. Lillian Child

    You had me at Four Chairs! There’s just something about an inviting chair or bench that beckons us to stop and sit a spell. LOVE this set!

  426. Mary – I like your list to…but I would have to throw in the Perfect Punches stamp set and the Aviary is tickling by fancy too!!!

  427. I agree with you completely on the 10 gotta have list. I would have to pick the Just Belive as the top. I have been eyeing on that stamp set and can’t wait to see what you come up with. And the hostess set, cute by the inch, is to die for. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

  428. Your list is great! I agree on the Jewels, they will be on my next order! For stamps sets Aviary, Four Chairs, Come to Bethlehem (on it’s way) and Funky Four are on my have to have list. The Big Shot Die storage and the clear block storage are also on my list as soon as I can get them. And I can’t tell you how happy I am that Smooch Spritz made it to the catalog, I love that stuff!

  429. Kellie Cavallaro

    Thanks for sharing your top ten list. The owl punch and Just Believe are at the top of my “must have” list, as well as the new Color Coach.

  430. My favorite stamp set is Just Believe. But there are so many nice new things in the book. I really like most is how each stamp set is coordinated with what punch goes with what stamp. Lat of all, LOLOL, all the new colors are wonderful! Have a great weekend and thanks for a chance to win blog candy.

  431. Mary great list! We definitely have some overlap–the first thing I ordered was the Owl Punch, but I’m really excited for my next order, when I’ll be getting Have a Seat–there’s something about those chairs that I just love. Happy Stamping!

  432. I love Just Believe, Style Beautiful, Love Letter DSP, Newsprint DSP, saving money by getting the Color Kits, and the fact that it’s so easy to match punches to stamps now!

  433. Gotta have the new carrying case for the clear blocks!!!

  434. Just to list a few of my favorites: the new owl and big scallop punch, clear block storage,pearls and rhinestones!

  435. Kelley Roganowicz

    I just made my first order from the new catalog last night, and it was my “hostess night” too. What fun! I ordered the Owl punch, and the new double scallop ribbon border punch (I think it looks like ribbon!), and the Tag Alongs at the very back of the book. I’m so excited and will be counting the days until they arrive. Thanks so much for the candy offer – it really got my “juices flowing!”

  436. There are so many new products I like but the one thing I like the most is that they listed the punch that coordinates with the stamp set. That has made our lives much easier in our stamping world.

  437. Michelle Schreck

    I didn’t think I’d like that owl punch but it’s so cute! p.s. your blog is so fun to check everyday!

  438. There are many new things I NEED to get from the new catalog! I really love some of the new phrase sets that are available and I’m really glad they are selling the rhinestones and pearls.

  439. Linda Spengler

    Hi Mary-
    This is tough, but I did find some “must haves”. I agree that Just Believe is going to be a ‘go to’ set for me, and even though I have lots of sets with sayings, Word Play is so darned unique that I just have to have it! Greenhouse Gala is bold and eye-popping, but I’ve seen some cute stuff made with it on SCS–need that as well. Christmas in July–what fun! Linda

  440. Thank you Mary for the offer! I love that the vinatge is back. I am buying mostly new colors in pads and markers and the color coach this month and then on to the vintage stamps like Notably Ornate. Also I am looking forward to playing with the Marnia Mist some of the color combos with it in the new catty. Have a great weekend!

  441. Love, love, love the inchie hostess set!

  442. Okay Ms. Mary, there is so much to choose from….so many choices. My favorite would be Holiday: Greeting Card Kids. I can see so many possibilities with that set. I also love Morning Cup. I like so much of the stuff. I can I will be ordering lots….I can’t wait to see what your ideas will be. Take care…

  443. Hi Mary! I’ve been a lurker on your blog for a while, but I’ve finally decided to post! You make the most beautiful things and I love visiting your site everyday to see what you’ve created! My favorite thing from the new catty is that Rich Razzleberry is a returning color!!!! YAY!!!! I need the ribbon….lots of it!!!

  444. Just Believe! Just Believe! Is so awesome! Also loving the new Owl Punch. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy!!!

  445. I fell in live with the owl punch the second I saw it!


  446. Colleen Moreland

    Okay Ms. Mary, there is a ton to choose from. My favorite is Holiday: Greeting Card Kids. I love them and I can see how many possibilities you can have with them. I love the new stuff…. I guess I will be ordering soon. So much stuff….. I can’t wait to see all your new ideas too…. Take care!!!

  447. Seriously now, only one new favorite thing??? I love it all! I really like the way Stampin Up is now selling single stamps. I too love the new single stamp set “baby steps.”

  448. Can’t wait to see what you create with your top picks–This catalog is one of the best yet-many of my favorites are still offered but then there are SO many MUST HAVES. I am partial to Just Believe and Baby Steps

  449. I agree with you on the Hostess selection in this catalog! I am concocting all manners of ways to qualify for the Hostess set you chose. That’s my fave. I am really happy with the new catalog – love the fact that many of the sets were retained. That means YOU will come up with more and more wonderful ways to use them, and I love the changes to the paper pallettes.
    There will be fun times ahead!

  450. Erin Drislane

    Hi Mary, the new jewels and color matching buttons are my favorites. All those great colors of buttons are just calling out to me to be used. Thanks for a chance to win that awesome blog candy.

  451. Great taste, as usual, Mary! My favorite is Awash with Flowers – I just love it which is a lot coming from me as I’ve never been a flower stamp person. I also like the Greenhouse Gala DSP. Cannot wait to place my first order at my Stampers 10 group.

  452. Awash with Flowers is my favorite and the Sunny Garden DSP–so cool that they made a stamp set to coordinate–I’m gonna get a lot of mileage out of all of these!
    I love your website, Mary–thanks for all the work you put into it.

  453. The Two Step Owl Punch will be coming to my house to play along with the Play Date Paper!! It’s so hard to choose! The new punch design makes storage easier too! I, too, love the jewels! You get so much more per pack than at the Hobby Stores! Ok, I’m rambling…. Have a great day.

  454. Mary, this is so fun! I do like too very different stamp sets. Aviary and Notably Ornate. I am so glad that it is on some lists, but Aviary caught my eye on my first round through the catalog–it is the bird cages. I also love the double ribbon punch. SU has such versatile punches and I hope this becomes one of those “go to” punches. [Yes, I think the owl punch is cute and fun.]

  455. SU outdid itself with this catalog! Too much fun and awesome inspiration! I really like the “Punch Potpourri” hostess set, the “Tiny Teacup” single stamp, and the “Take a Sip” wheel. I also am TICKLED PINK to see the tiny pearls! I am going to have to pace myself in the “color renovation”…markers, pastels, papers, pads…

  456. It is hard to list only a few favorites, but I think Aviary and the 2-step Owl punch to mention just a few. I like the fact that more single stamps are available such as On the Green, Friends never Fade, and Ornate Blossom and of course all of the new colors and DSP

  457. Mary I love your list. I think my favorite new stamp set is the Got Treats one. I think it is just perfect for the die. But there are so many great new things in this catalog that I will be ordering.


  458. Mary we have some of the same favorites in common. My favorites are Just Believe and Curly Cute. I am still perusing to decide on my wish list. Thanks for inspiring us every day.

  459. I love the alphabet stamp that highlights HI. Love it!

  460. I also like the the jewels and pearls. The new colors are nice too! Thanks for your blog and the chance to win! As always, your blog is my favorite too! I still check it everyday.

  461. I love the DP Elegant Soiree, the hostess set Punch Potpourri, Printed Petals stzmp set and the Aviary set. Thanks for the chance to win!

  462. Kelli Fletcher

    Owl punch – no contest. I love to use my owl chipboard for projects and cards. So much fun with these birds. Thanks Mary for providing daily inspiration!

  463. I love getting the new catalog and this one is one of the best. It has been a sad time, my friend who got me started in stamping died this April of cancer. When the new catalog came out, we would go page by page making our wish list out. She would have loved this catalog.

  464. Oh there is so much that I want from the new catty. The first things that I want are the new colors plus the in-colors. That means the paper, markers and ribbon. Now I am out of money until the next month.

  465. I lovethe new jewels! I have been waiting sooooooooooooooo long for them also. My wish list is so long. Everytime I look at the book I add something else.

  466. It was great to see that some of my favorites made your list as well. Just Believe and Elegant Soiree are on their way to my house as we speak. I love the stick on jewels as well! I think the single stamp called “Elizabeth” is quite elegant and can’t wait to give it some ink!

  467. Lots of great stuff in the catalog, but my favorite for sure is the Elegant Soiree’ DSP…and the clear block storage case.

  468. Your list is different than mine. My first two sets to be ordered were Artistic Etchings and Studio Sketches. My first hostess set is Because I Care. I love the new stick on bling, the vintage brads, some of the new ribbons, and the list goes on. Of course my first order included new colors and new card stock. I am not a demo so i had to wiat till July 1 and my demo was glad to have my order!

  469. Mary, I was instantly attracted to the Curly Cute stamp set as well as the Elegant Soiree’ DSP. These were in my first order, but decidedly not my last order by a long shot! Love the new colors too. Thanks for the chance at the blog candy!

  470. YOur list is different than mine. My first two sets to order are Artistic Etchings and Studio Sketches. Of course, the first things on the list are all the new colors and cardstock. I like several of the new single stamps in the fornt of the catalog. I love the stick on bling — pearls and rhinestones. And the new vintage brads are wonderful.

  471. WOW!! I am pretty new to SU so everything is my favorite. This is not a product but a pretty cool and awesome feature of the catalog….showing which punches go with the stamp sets. What a fabulous feature and I love it! My wish list is ready and it’s pretty long………guess what my birthday and Christmas lists have on it! Thanks a bundle Mary for your generosity.


  472. I am so adicted to Stampin Up. I love the new designer paper especially the newsprint. I also love that most of the stamp sets are in clear.

  473. I love that owl punch! I also love the stick on pearls and rhinestones!

  474. Just Believe for sure! I’ve already ordered it and can’t wait to see how many uses I can create with it. Isn’t a new catalog fun???

  475. There are quite a few things that I really like from the catalog but one of the new items that tickled me pink, is the new owl punch. How adorable is that sample using that punch?! Must have for me. Nice to see as well are the rhinestone and pearls stick-ons. Long time coming I think.

  476. A couple favorite things are the clear mount block storage case and the Believe stamp set. The rest of the “Gotta Have it” list is growing!

  477. gosh, I know what you mean about the new catalog and trying to narrow it down to just 10 of your faves.
    To chose one, I will have to go with the Aviary set. Gorgeous!!!!

  478. I love the owl punch, the clear block storage, the bat punch. All the new designer paper is awesome. Thanks, Debbie

  479. Marilyn McCree


    I love what you have chose too but I love the stamp set Aviary. Love the birdcage designs,birds and owl in this set. I think Stampin Up has made this catalog one of the best ever.

  480. I must confess Greeting card Kids and Just Believe are on my list as well.

  481. I have a pretty big list, but I love Greeting Card Kids, the two-step owl punch, the PlayDate paper… I can’t wait to get to place a second order!

  482. Gilda Fellows

    My favorite is the Owl Punch, the Play Date DSP, the Clear Blocks Caddy, the Just Believe Clear Mount Stamp and a whole lot more. I wrote down my wish list and oh my gosh, it was $1100.

  483. I love everything :), love “just believe”

  484. Mary,
    I love all the sets you have chosen too! I think the Greeting Card Kids is just adorable! Just Believe is so pretty! Those 2 are some of my favorites!
    Thanks for the chance to win an awesome giveaway! It would be an honor to win something from you! Hope I win!

  485. The greeting card kids (thank goodness it’s clear mounted) and that owl punch are a couple of my favorites too. I really love this new catty. I do believe Stampin’ Up is on top of it this time. I love evertything in it!!!

  486. The new designer paper and the owl punch!

  487. Every one of your choices are also on my list. Some I have already ordered! One of the standouts on my list is the Greeting Card Kids stamp set. It looks just like the images on a lot of the old greeting cards. I can’t wait to get it. I also just ordered the rhinestones and pearls along with the owl punch.

  488. Jeannette Dailey

    I fell in love with the new catalog. There’s tons that I want. If I had to list my top 10; they would be:
    Greeting Card Kids—-Morning Cup—Best Bots Forever—Plant Hope—Artistic Etchings—Presto Patterns Specialty DSP–Two-step Owl Punch– Bitty Bat Punch–

  489. Susan Carlson

    Mary, you’ve got great taste! I chose many of the same items as my favorites. Greeting Card Kids is a must for me – even if I have to color them! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy : )

  490. Christine Wojciechowski

    I love SO many of the new products – many of the stamp sets, the paper daisies, pearls, and the Mini Milk Carton die. But I think my favorites are all of the single stamps – Tiny Teacup, For You Flower, Baby Steps, and Three Leaves. Beautiful images.
