My Top 10 Favorite Accessories in the New Stampin’ Up! Catalog

The new 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is loaded with smart, trendy and beautiful paper crafting products.  After much deliberation (and lots of feedback from my Stampin’ Pretty Pals), I wanted to share what I believe will be the most popular tools and accessories.  My decision was based primarily on versatility, innovation and my personal experience in observing market trends and sales.

  1. My sweet husband made me a “ghetto” fix for my broken Stampin Scrub… he made two “hinges” with black electrical tape over the old hinges. Works pretty great for over a year now. But I’m quite sure my customers will be more impressed when I get the new one. Great list, Mary!

  2. My only substitutions are the Fancy Fan embossing folder instead of the Chevron and the Floral Frames framelits instead of the Apothecary Accents 🙂 Otherwise, I concur! And I’m glad I am not the only one having issues with the Stampin’ Scrub– I thought it was me! I dropped mine on CARPET the other day and it broke and now the two halves don’t stay together…

  3. FYI . . . they aren’t in any particular order . . . OK, maybe the ink pads need to be in first! hugs, m

  4. Since I have had to purchase three Stampin Scrubs in the last year or so because they keep breaking the I would have to say the new Stampin’ Scrub would be my favorite. But a close second is the new Paper Piercing Pack because I don’t want to get my sewing machine out to do it. lol 🙂

  5. Can’t wait to order my new Stampin’ Scrub. My old one has been a champ but it is definitely time for a replacement.

  6. I’m in all agreement w/what you’ve shosen, but I’m not the only one who feels this way………..thanks for a great blog day!

  7. Mary, My list is the same as you. I am afraid I am going to have to find a way to put these on my wish list to my need to buy list. Have a great day Mary. Thanks for all your creativity. Hugs, Ellen

  8. Wonderful list Mary!!! I already had most of these items on my planned order but I think you have convinced me to add Polka Dot DSP! I was curious if they were in order. I certainly think 1 and 2 are!

  9. LOVE LOVE LOVE the NEWLY DESIGNED STAMPIN’ SCRUB – Thinking SU couldn’t improve on a fabulous product – and saw all the great new features makes it a MUST HAVE on my new product order. Many thanks for sharing your top ten with us.

  10. 2,5,6,8 and 10

    Can’t wait to play. My SU box should arive on my birthday. The best birthday gift.

  11. Wow, I think we have all the same favorites only in a different order. I have been cleaning my craft room to make way for the new, can’t place an order until it is finished!
