My 10 Favorite Things from the Holiday Catalog


The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog officially began yesterday and I can tell from my customer orders and feedback on Day #1 that you are giving the new products a big “thumbs up!”  With the launch of each new Stampin’ Up! catalog, I like to share my favorite stamps, accessories and tools based on versatility, style and what I personally think will be the most popular papercrafting goodies.
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!  Take a peek and leave me a comment if you agree with any of these or think I missed a product you love!  I have my longest wish list EVER for a Stampin’ Up! seasonal catalog!


1.  Favorite Halloween Stamp Set:  Halloween Bash.  Beware!  May be simply too cute!  Coordinates with many Stampin’ Up! punches, Labels Collection Framelits and the Witches Brew Washi Tape ($4.95, 132156).


 2.  Favorite Fall Stamp Set:  Magnificent Maple.  Simple design and luscious when heat embossed!



3.  Favorite Holiday Sentiment Stamp Set:  Christmas Messages.  I’m diggin’ the mix of fonts.  How about you?


4.  Favorite Holiday Images Set:  Festive Flurry Bundle.   Snowflakes that don’t melt!  Save 15% when you purchase the stamp and framelits as a bundle.



Most Versatile Stamp Set:  Tags for You.
  Coordinates with the Label
Bracket Punch ($15.95, 132153) or buy it as a Wood-Mount Bundle ($30.95, 133293) or Clear-Mount Bundle ($26.95, 133294).




6.  Favorite Designer Series Paper:  Season of Style Designer Series Paper.   Don’t forget the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape ($4.95, 132155).  Frankly, I got all the Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalog . . . you won’t be disappointed with any of it!

  1. I would put #4 as my number 1 on my wishlist!! I just love snowflakes and this bundles depicts them perfectly!!

  2. I just love when your ‘favorites’ are on my list as well . . . I know I can look forward to you sharing some great ideas :o) I did place my order yesterday so I am anxiously waiting for it to arrive. I think the envelope lines will get play-time first!!!

  3. Mary, I can’t wait to see how you use the new ornament punch. The “old” one used to make a vase was genius. Now I’m looking forward to another innovation with this new shape. I can’t wait to get my envelope liner dies. Thanks for sharing! Nancy B

  4. I’ve got a list a mile long, too! I’ve circled almost everything, lol <3 = Expressions thinlits and Seasons of Style paper deck.

  5. Mary, I got my catalogs and can’t wait to get some holiday stuff! LOL My fav’s are the mini-muslin bags and the tag kits! 🙂

  6. Thank you Mary for your Favorites, I look forward to your post on every catalog launch….not to mention i am a great big fan of yours…….

  7. Oh Mary how could you leave the Bow die out of your line up, I think it is great!

  8. Nikki Cochran

    Yesterday I place my order from the Holiday Catalog. You forgot the bow die. I watched a video before I ordered it to make sure it was as easy as it seemed. Looking forward to trying it out!!

  9. I love getting your emails every night I can’t wait until we receive the holiday catalogue in Australia

    Mary, I read your blog every day. I expecially enjoy “your favorite things” Thanks for sharing.

  11. I like the Christmas Messages stamp set, the beautiful designs on the Season of Style DSP, the Pretty Print EF from your list, Mary. Some of the things you didn’t mention are the Sweater Weather DSP, love the colors. I also like the Tags for You stamp set and the coordinating Label Bracket Punch, as a bundle is a great deal!!
    Thanks for sharing your favorites.
