My Occasions Catalog Favorite Things Revealed!


With the official launch of the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Promotion on yesterday’s post, I thought I would reveal my list of favorite products.  It’s not easy to narrow things down with so many product choices.  However, I look for what will be easy to use, on trend, versatile for many occasions and just plain amazing when making my final decisions.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?  Do you have a favorite on the list or, perhaps, something I didn’t mention?  Please leave me a comment HERE.  I love hearing from you!

  1. That’s really interesting – I did my own favourite things on my blog, and we only have two overlaps. It was pretty hard to choose and no doubt my favourites will change over time…

  2. You are SO spot on, Kelly!

  3. Mary our lists are similar and my top item is also the number of years and large numbers framelits. I’ve used it for three occasions already!

  4. Thanks all! I enjoy sharing these with you. However, this list is known to “evolve” over time!

  5. Mary Lou Glick

    Mary, I look forward to seeing your favorites when a new catalog comes out!

  6. Awesome list! You’ve included such a great variety of products here.

  7. Glad you are enjoying the favorites!

  8. LOVE your top picks Mary. Rethinking the decision to not get the ‘Nice Cuppa’ set. Can’t wait to see some samples with all this goodness.

  9. I always love your favorites when a new catalog begins. Thank you for sharing
