  77. Hey Mary!

    I just bought the little pom pom fringe and I’m delighted with the soft colors–perfect for Spring!

  78. To choose only one is unbeliebably difficult. But I love the build a cup cake punch because I love cup cakes and birthdays! But the enire Mini catalog is just fantastic!

  79. Build a Cupcake stamps and punch are my current favorite.

  80. I have many favorites but I have to admit that I love punches and dies. I love the new cupcake punch and stamp set. However, I can see how the punches can be used on all sorts of paper without the stamps.

  81. 44 Pages and to pick one item, oh my! The Glimmer Paper is fantastic, the book does no justice. I am so glad I ordered it. LOVE IT!

  82. Oh Wow! I can’t pick just one! I love the Build a Blossom, Natures Walk and the Sew Suite! I also love all the things that go with them. This is one of the first times that I absolutely love everything in this catalog!

  83. I’m totally in love with the Thanks for Caring set. It’s not only a wonderful set to send a sympathy card, but I think it will be a wonderful spring birthday card set. The butterfly is just enchanting.

  84. The Sew Suite set is “sew” cute. I can’t wait to try some machine stitching with this set. Thanks Mary for your sew pretty site.

  85. Love the Valentine Defined set! Great with the red glitter paper! I subscripe to your blog and look forward to viewing it each and every day! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  86. I love the cupcake punch and stamp set. I also love the eat chocolate set.
    Thanks for the chance to play!

  87. Keep It Simple Silly Or KISS! This year I promised myself I would enjoy creating and not worrying or compare myself to the ?Master Crafters?. I think a simple/classic stamp or a simple/classic punch can make a card. I love the 2 ? circle punch. It is quick and easy, no dragging out extra equipment. It is there when I need it. It complements the punches I already have and it works with the layering effect. I feel I can?t go wrong building a fabulous foundation with the 2 ? circle punch.

  88. If I have to pick one right now… it’s the Valentine Defined set. However, the cupcake set and punch with the pom pom trim are right up there too. Thanks Mary!!

  89. Loving the Baby Blossoms stamps and the Springtime Vintage DSP. Thanks for a chance at the blog candy!
    Toots

  90. I love, love, love the Springtime Vintage Suite. It makes card creation easy, with paper, stamps, and buttons that coordinate!

  92. Susan Christian

    Mine has to be the new cupcake set and punch – looks like you spent tons of time cutting out all those pieces for someone who didn’t know it was a punch!

  178. The cupcake punch for me too!

  179. I just love the Cupcake punch and the create a cupcake stamp set!!!

  180. I LOVE bolg candy!!!! Although I have never won any LOL!!! I have a hard time naming one product in the mini, but I would go out on a limb and say the Buil A CUpcake stamp set and punch!!! I am ready for bright spring colors!!!

  181. I am excited about the Glitter Paper! I make a mess with glitter, so glitter paper is much safer for me πŸ™‚ The rest of the catalog is great!

  185. Sometimes I’m not able to make cards ahead of time, so I am always looking for something that is versatile and easy for a fast, last minute card. The Cupcake Punch looks like it would perfect for that! I can’t wait to see all the different projects YOU do with it!

  186. I will say the whole Oh Sew Sweet Collection…my colors, great papers, wonderful stamps! Can’t wait to get mine.

    Thanks for the WOW videos, I love them too :0)

  191. I am so relieved that the decorative punch was also in this catalog as I couldn’t buy it from the last and was hoping it didn’t go into the abyss, but it’s back and this time I’m getting it for sure!

  192. I really like the Tulip border embossing folder. There are just so many ideas!!

  193. I can’t wait to get my hands on nature walk! I love that type of stamps and love vintage. I also love the framed tulip embossing folder – love to run things thru my Big Shot!!

  200. Mary, no need to enter me in the drawing, but I had to share with you. My favorite is the Springtime Vintage paper. It takes me back to my childhood days when Grandma & Mom would make aprons & dresses out of similar patterns. So relaxing & serene.

    Thanks for the chance to win! πŸ™‚

  203. Oh My Goodness! You have to pick ONE! That is REALLY hard but if I had to choose ONE I guess I would pick ONE I think I would choose create a cupcake and punch or does that make two! Oh well, I did good to narrow it down that much ’cause I love the whole mini!!! Thanks for the chance to win an awesome giveaway! Love your blog!

  204. I LOVE the new vintage line!!!

  205. It is hard to pick just one. I’ve used Bring on the cake the most.

  206. Hands down, it is the cup cake punch…and the stamp set, oh so sweet.
    TeriS in SO CA

  207. It’s so hard to pick just one. I will say build a cupcake punch. I just love a punch that matches with a stamp set

  208. Dennis Cochran

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Framed Tulps Embossing folder.. I love to use embossing folders for my cards.

  209. The Build a Blossum punch with matching set is awesome!

  210. Hi Mary. My favorite is the Easter Blossoms stamps. Thank you for sharing all your great ideas.

  211. I appreciate your beautiful card designs Mary. My favorite (cupcake punch) is also the most mentioned.

  212. I always love your blog candy! It’s always so fun! My favorite new product on the Occasions Mini Catalog would be the Botanical Gazette Suite! I just LOVE the birdcage in the Nature Walk set and the coordinating DSP is perfect!

  213. I love the glimmer paper, wish it was in other colors besides red. Also really like the buttons in springtime vintage.

  214. I really like the Build a Blossom stamp set with coordinating Blossom Petals punch. I think I could a lot with those!

  215. There are so many fun things in this mini that is difficult to choose just one…my wish list proves that! Top on my list is the Eat Chocolate set. SU! had me in mind when they created this set. Thanks for the chance at some great blog candy. jmniffer

  216. I love so many items in the new mini, it’s hard to pick just one. But if I have to…it would be Nature Walk because of my love of nature. This stamp set is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy!

  217. Linda Carrell Davis

    Cupcakes or chocolate …. hmmmm how does a girl choose? I choose cupcakes!!

  218. I am totally torn between the Build A Blossom set (along with cordinating punch) and the Button Button set. They both are really my style. Can’t wait to see you do some samples of them.

  219. Hi Mary, I love everything about the new mini catalog, but the first thing that caught my eye was the Nature Walk set and coordinating paper. I can’t wait for my order to come in to use that beautiful set. Truly a work of art.

  220. I also love the cupcake punch and Bring on the cake stamnp set.

  221. I have already made a list from the catalog so it’s tough to pick my favorite. But something about the Chocolate stamp set makes me happy. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win!

  222. Valentine Defined….love it, love it. Thanks for offering blog candy. It is so nice of you!

  223. I’m loving the Sweet Fabric Buttons – you can never have too many embellishments. Your picture has me ready for spring with those colors!!

  224. One?? Impossible! But a favorite is the red glimmer paper which is so versatile. Thanks for your daily dose of inspiration!

  225. I love your blog – it’s given me so many ideas! If I’d have to pick one thing – the glitter page is awesome! it’s just what I needed to make Valentine’s day cards…

  226. I love the cupcake punch. Heck I love anything cupcakes.

  227. Usually, there is always one stamp set that keeps calling to me each time I look at the catalog or mini. This time it is Nature Walk- I love the botanical, natural look and the versatility it will provide!

  228. My favorite new item is the Baby Blossoms stamp set. I was thinking I’d wait until SAB to order it as well but I’m a little hesitant – only because I think it’s a 2 step stamp set, but it doesn’t say. Do you know if there’s a guide to which little stamps work together to creat the layers? Any way around it – I’m madly in love with the frame that comes with it!

  229. My favorite is definitely Easter Blossoms. Thank you for your blog. It is the second one I visit every day just after visiting my best friends blog. Your videos are very helpful too. Thank you for the beautiful work and for sharing. And blog candy is always nice.

  230. Tracey Hartje

    Love, Love, Love the Build a Blossom! I’m trying to pace myself on buying the rest…so I have time to savor!

  231. My favorite set so far is the Valentine Defined. I love the versatility of the set. I was able to create a whole set of cards in no time. I think the tree is my favorite image from it. I also like the hearts on the long stems. They make a great stamp for the inside of the card.

  232. I haven’t ordered yet from the Occasions mini, but I’m a punch nut so I’m thinking the new cupcake punch will be in my first order.

  233. My favorite item from the mini catalog is the new cupcake punch!

  234. Whoo Hoo for BLOG CANDY!!! Create a Cupcake is hands down my number one pick from the Occasions Mini. However, absolutely have to have the complimenting Build a Cupcake Punch to go with it! And, you are absolutely right, this set is the “Grand Poobah” of the Occasions Mini Catalog!
    Mary, Thanks for all your wonderful creations and ideas!

  235. It is always SO hard to choose a favorite product. I love ribbon and I love pom poms so I will have to say it is the pom pom trim – in ALL colors!

  236. Lynne Wascher

    I really like the Build a Cupcake Punch and Create a Cupcake stamp set. These set items are first on my list when Sale-a-Bration begins.

  237. Mary, that you so much for all of your inspiration everyday. It is so hard to choose 1 item from this mini. So, if I have to choose, I will say “Easter Blossoms”. I have been using the tree branch for several b’day cards with several techniques. Thanks again! Sheila

  238. Absolutely, without a doubt, the Cupcake punch and co-ordinating stamp set! You have just gotta love it!

  239. I love the combo of Create-a-cupcake and the Build-a-cupcake punch. Both of them are so versatile and can be used in many occasions.

  240. I love the build a blossom stamp set and coordinating punch. A close second is the new cupcake punch and coordinating stamp set. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I win the blog candy! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with us.

  243. Shannon Bee Auberson

    Can’t wait to get the Nature Walk stamp set. It is going to be so versatile. Love your daily posts. They keep me inspired.

  244. Mary – I love the whole “button” suite! Embosslits, paper, fabric, rub-ons and lets not forget the stamps! I am going to get some serious free SAB sets as a result =)

  245. how can you decide on one?? the best mini ever I love the BEE paper actually all the paper it is awesome!~

  246. I really like the Sew Suite collection! I am anxious to see what fabulous projects YOU will create from it! I check your blog every single day and love all that you share! Please know how much you and your work are appreciated!

  247. It’s so hard to pick which is my favorite – it’s a wonderful mini. If I had to pick one, it would be the Framed Tulips embossing folder. Very pretty!!!

  248. Hello Mary: It’s so hard to pick a favorite thing but, I think the “Take a Spin” stamp set is fabulous!!!!! I got it yesterday, along with the “Game Spinner Hands” and I am using it today for a super cute Baby Shower card I’m making for my daughter’s friend party this afternoon. This set got here just in time. Thank you for always sharing your talent with us.
    Maria.

  251. There are several items that I really like. My fav is the Nature Walk set. But, I also really like the sewing themed products. Have a great day!

  252. You have so many sneak peeks before we even get the mini, it’s hard to pick just one! I love the tulip embrossing folder and cant wait to receive my order.

  253. Enjoy reading your blog and all your fabulous ideas. You’re right–it’s hard to pick just one. I love the new cupcake punch and the matching stamp set.

  257. Sandy (redstampinsam)

    Hi Mary My favorite is the birthday set “Bring on the Cake.” I stamp mostly birthday cards and this one has so much to offer for the front of the card, the inside, and the envelope. I think it will make me very happy to own it! Thanks for the colorful blog candy opportunity!

  262. Just one favourite?!! Okay…if I can only pick one item it would be the cupcake punch. This is SO versatile and when I embellish with glitter for sprinkles and scoring for the creases on the cupcake wrapper, my wee cupcakes will almost be as cute as the ones in the matching stamp set. I can’t lie though…I can’t buy one or the other, I’m getting both!

  263. Being the practical stamper that I am, I would say my most preferred item would be the Textured Impressions Framed Tulips embossing folder. Love my Big Shot!

  268. I found it hard to pick my favorite but I have to say that the Valentine Defined was the first set that I added to my order. I see it being used for so much more than just Valentine’s Day! Thanks for your daily inspiration!

  269. Cupcake punch, hands down! Although the flamingos kissing is pretty darn dute, too!

  270. The cupcake punch is my ultimate fave, runner up is the buttons embosslits, you will never run out of buttons. πŸ™‚

    The Eat Chocolate set is my favorite for the moment. Ask me again tomorrow and it will probably be different! I guess I will have to provide my own chocolate smeary fingerprint on the cards – one would think that would be included in the set! Love your blog, videos and all! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  389. I think that my favorite will be the new Nature Walk stamp set, but I also like the Medallion Medley cards and the Be My Valentine stamp.

  390. I have a hard time picking just one thing, but I would have to say Nature Walk followed closely by Baby Blossoms. This mini with all the beautiful papers is wonderful!

  391. a fave! i would love the nature walk!!

  392. You’re right, I can’t narrow it down to 1 item. Like most people above, I have to have the new cupcake punch and matching stamp set. Plus, the new bringon the cake stamp set will be fantastic for birthday cards, which I seem to make so many of. Thanks for the blog candy offer…it looks delicious!

  393. love the new mini – I can’t honestly pick just one thing as my favorite … so I’m going to say that the cup-cake punch and Sew Suite are my favorites IN THEIR CATEGORY … how’s that?! and the new designer fabric, and the brads … sew cute!

  400. I think the Stampin’ Sound Card is a neat idea. Why not do a WOW tutorial.

  401. It is so hard to choose, but if I have to it would be the Create a Cupcake set. My girls are all crazy for anything cupcake. The glimmer paper is wonderful too.

  402. Build a Blossom Punch is my favorite and of course I had to have the coordinating stamp set. I agree this is one of the best mini catalogs that I’ve seen so far.

  403. Glitter Paper! I love the whole romantic series with trinkets and the newsy paper. But that glitter paper adds just the right touch to sooo many different projects. I wish they would make it in all colors!!

  404. I read your blog every day! You keep me inspired. i must have that vintage designer paper!! It reminds me of my grandmother’s aprons…
