  1. Just got my catalog, now to choose which items I like best. Trying to figure out how I missed the framlits.

    Looks like I will have to put those on my list.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I love the combination of Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding. Both are subtle takes on some of my old favorites. Played with the Mosaic Madness bundle yesterday. There are so many creative options in this stamp set and then when added to the embossing folder and punch…wow!!!

  3. WOW Mary, some of your favorites are mine too. First of all, those Candy Dots!! I love them, they look awesome on the pictures but they must be even better in person, I also love the Hexagon punch,(I’m so darn happy SU finally came out with this item, I’ve been after one for the longest time) the Polka Dot pieces and the Birthday Candles wheel among others.

  4. Thanks, Mary, for sharing all of your faves! Special thanks for the “Helpful Stampin’ Pretty Charts” which are so useful.

  5. Hands down the Magnetic Platform for the Sizzix is my absolute favorite tool. No more taping and hoping it doesn’t move while you roll – Great idea!!! With this goes the circle and square framelits. My favorite stamp set is the one that includes, “Gee, thanks” and “And it’s all REALLY good!” Feel Good?

  6. Thanks, Mary! I’ve been waiting for your discerning eye on the new products!

  7. Thanks Mary for sharing your favorites. I’m afraid I just want it ALL!

  8. Spot on, Mary! 🙂

  9. I cannot wait to play with my magnetic platform! My new order came yesterday but I wouldn’t even let myself open it because I didn’t have time to play last night. And SO excited to play with the new punches!! I just love SU! punches :o)

  10. Thank you Mary for sharing….

  11. Oh YES, yes, I do. The Pansy punch and it’s co-ordinating stamp set Flower Shop – oh and don’t forget about the Candy Dots – I think I am going to be going through a whole lot of these 🙂 SO much fun!!!

  12. I love your list–mostly because I chose a lot of the same products!

  13. I also love the list! Do you know the dimensions of the Big Shot Magnetic Platform? Can it be used in a Cuttlebug?

  14. I am so thankful for your lists. Most of your favorites are mine also. I have an order coming tomorrow with the hexagon, the dots and the magnetic platform. I’m so glad they thought of that. It will make things so much easier cutting out the bundle sets. Picture me happy! I have printed out your lists and they are very helpful also. Thank you so much.

  15. Hi Debbie: The Magnetic Platform is approx. 6 1/8″ wide x 8 7/8″ long and 5/8″ high. My understanding is that it is too wide for the Cuttlebug. However, I don’t have a Cuttlebug to personally test it. Hugs, M

  16. Mary,

    Does the hexagon punch coordinate with the honeycomb embossing folder? It would sure be nice to be able to punch hexagons to fit inside the embossed honeycombs.

    thanks!
    Angela

  17. Debbie Herron

    Thank you Mary! Yes, the Magnetic Platform is too wide for the Cuttlebug, which measures 6″ wide. I love using the Framelits, but not the post-it notes to keep them in position. So buying a Big Shot with the Magnectic Platform will be my next SU purchase. 🙂

  18. I recently discovered your blog! Such beautiful ideas for cards. I’m getting the “bug” big time. Thank you for sharing!
