From the Archives: My Top 10 Holiday Catalog Favorites

Now that many of us have had a chance to create and see more samples using products from the Stampin’Up! Holiday Catalog, I thought I would re-share my original Top 10 Favorite Things in the Holiday Catalog.  Do you have any new favorites?  Please leave me a comment below 🙂

My Top 10 Favorite Things in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog!

I truly believe Stampin’ Up!
has set the “paper crafting standard” for the holidays with their
latest Holiday Catalog.  Enjoy a splendid mix of new products ranging
from clean and simple to vintage.  You’ll have everything you need to
create cards, dress up gifts, package treats or set an engaging table.  DON’T MISS the the savings on nine different holiday product bundles (p. 2).

Let’s take a tour through the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog together and I’ll share My Top 10 Favorite Things:

1.  Ornament Keepsakes Bundle (Wood-Mount Bundle 129949, $49.95 OR Clear-Mount Bundle 129950,
$42.95), p. 3.  This is proving to be one of the most popular holiday
choices by my customers.  You save 15% over buying the stamp set and
framelits separately!Ornament keepsakes stampin up rubber stamps2.  Merry Minis  (Wood-Mount 127916, $14.95 OR Clear-Mount 127919, $11.95) & Merry Minis Punch Pack (126882,
3 mini punches for $16.95) p. 6.  Tags, bags and everything else.
These little coordinating cuties will warm your heart and stoke your
paper crafting projects with their endless possibilities.

3.  1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (127811,
$15.95), p. 7.  Expand your scallop circle punch family (can there ever
be enough?) with this new size.  Works great alone or layered.  Try it
as the perfect mat for the 1″ Circle Punch.

4.  Greetings of the Season (Wood-Mount 128030, $15.95 or Clear-Mount 128033, $11.95), p. 8.  A sentiment essential for the holidays.  Just add paper, ink and ribbon.  Done!

5.  Snowflurry Bigz Die (127813,
$21.95), p. 14.   Set the stage or set the table.   In addition to
holiday cards, this 3-piece set of snowflakes adds a fresh touch to
gifts, ornaments or place settings.  I love them cropped with our new
Champagne Glimmer Paper (127885, $4.95), p. 18.  Bada “Bling!”

6.  Scentsational Season Bundle (Wood-Mount Bundle 129945, $36.95 OR Clear-Mount Bundle 129946,
$32.95), p. 16.  It was love at sight when I spotted these adorable
Scentsational Season stamps and coordinating Holiday Collection
Framelits.  Emboss with either the Sugar & Spice (127829) or Peppermint Sticks (127830) Scented Stampin’ Emboss Powder for a multi-sensory experience!

10.  Perfectly Preserved Bundle (Wood-Mount Bundle 129943, $44.95 OR Clear-Mount Bundle 129944,

on a harvest theme offers a variety of autumn images to stamp, crop and
share with or without the jar.  Looks impeccable with the Orchard

  4. i have the tulle and have seen beautiful projects. i just haven’t used it yet. soon . . .

  5. My all time favorite is the new tulle ribbon that SU is selling. I’m hoping that it will be one of those fabulous carry over itmes that they continue to sell and makes it into next years catalog. Would love to see it in EVERY SINGLE SU COLOR!

  6. I’ve got all the items on your list, apart from Toxic Treats (we don’t really do Halloween, but I love this set and it’s on my list for ordering in October along with lots of goodies from the Annual Catalogue), so I guess we’re on similar wavelengths too! I also love the Tulle ribbon, and Snowflake Soir?e and the ribbon slides and …….. Well, you get the idea – if it’s SU I usually like it all!!
