So here it is!  The following is a list of My Favorite Things (all new products) in the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog which began June 2.  There are 10 fabulous stamp sets followed by 10 terrific tools and accessories.  It’s never easy to narrow down my favorites (and it’s my prerogative to find more favorites in the future, right)?  However, I hope this list inspires ideas and drills down to those products that I believe will be popular, versatile and smart additions to your paper crafting supplies. Thank you to my Stampin’ Pretty Pals for their helping picking favorites at our virtual catalog stroll last month!

What new Stampin’ Up! products make YOUR heart go pitter pat?  Please leave me a comment below.  I would love for you to share!

3.  No Bones about It.  This photopolymer set will be a grrr-reat to layer and perfect for the kiddos, boy or girl.   I have images of pink dinosaurs dancing in my head!

4.  You’re So Sweet.  Foodies rejoice!  These darling images and sentiments dress up goodie bags as well as cards, tags and more.  Coordinates with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies (p. 171).

5.  Watercolor Wings.  For those of us who are watercolor “challenged,”  here’s a simple solution for creating the look.  Photopolymer makes each step a snap!  Images coordinate with Bold Butterfly Framelits (new) and Butterflies Thinlits Dies, both on p. 172.  Save 15% when you purchase the Watercolor Wings stamp set and Bold Butterfly as a bundle!

6.  It’s Wild.  This background stamp reflects one of the hottest fashion and home décor crazes–animal print.  Layer it tone on tone for a subtle effect (love the pink framed sample on p. 101) or go “wild” with a more dramatic contrast.

7.  Happy Happenings.  If you are looking for the perfect all occasion stamp set with uber cool fonts, this set should dash to the top of your list.  Images work with many Stampin’ Up! punches and dies–especially dishy with the coordinating Label Bracket Punch.

8.  Tin of Cards Stamp Set.  This set of 20 photopolymer (clear) stamp sets is my #1 “must have” choice.  I love the simplicity and versatility.  Let’s face it . . . we ALL want to get the Tin of Cards Project Kit (p. 110) and File Tabs Edgelits Dies (p. 172) to organize and recreate the look on the catalog cover.  Tin holds the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cards from the kit.

9.  Garden in Bloom.  Fresh, modern and simple to layer.  It works beautifully with the English Garden Designer Series Paper (p. 142) and English Garden Coordinating Cardstock Pack.

10.  Definitely Dahlia.  This background stamp (I think Stampin’ Up! rocked the background stamps in this catalog) helps you become an “instant” artist with just one statement stamp.  Soft and pretty layered or solo.
