The stamping world is buzzing with excitement about the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.  Narrowing the field to My Top 10 Favorites wasn’t easy. I selected the following items that I feel really define what makes this mini special.


1.  Red Glimmer Paper (121790, $3.95, p. 7).  Add glam without the mess.  Perfect for punching out glittery shapes.  Remember Red Glimmer Paper from my Mojo Monday Post?  See sample below.

2.  Valentine Defined (WM 121941 $26.95, CM 123057 $18.95, p. 9).  This set will prove versatile for not only Valentine’s Day but weddings, anniversaries or more.  Here’s a sample from my sneak peeks!

3.   Build a Blossom (WM 121923 $25.95, CM 121994 $18.95, p. 12) and Blossom Petals Punch (121808, $16.95, p. 12).  The combinations are endless and the Blossoms Petal Punch offers quick and pretty results.  My clear Build A Blossom card HERE used both!

4. Vanilla Rosettes (118774, $5.95, p. 16).  Get to stunning in seconds. These Rosettes transform into any color you want with a few touches of a Stampin’ Write Marker.  Details for my Rosettes card.


5.  Create a Cupcake (WM 121915 $22.95, CM 121982 $16.95, p. 22) and Build a Cupcake Punch (121807, $16.95, p. 22).  I think this duo will be the “Grand Poobah” of the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Here’s a finished cupcake project.

6.  You’re a Gem (WM 122268 $14.95, CM 122270 $11.95, p. 25).  From clean and simple to vintage collage, this set will go the distance from clever and charming.  Take a peek.

7.  Nature Walk (WM 121925 $25.95, CM 121997 $18.95, p. 27).  The entire Botanical Gazette Suite (the designer paper is stunning) is on my radar.  Here’s one of my favorite samples using Nature Walk stamp set.

8.  Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (121809, $7.95, p. 25).  Stampin’ Up! Textured Impressions Embossing Folders always make it to my “must-have” list and this one is no exception.  Watch for tomorrow’s post for a new example.
