My Top 10 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog Favorites

Yup, it's that time of year, kids are heading back to school, summer is just about to wrap up, and we start planning our holidays! I can say that I am both happy and sad at the same time. I love, love, love the summer. I would rather be too hot than too cold. It is a tad funny that I live in the Seattle area because we are not known for our heat :-) In fact just the opposite and this summer was the summer that wasn't any different or at least until now. We are now on tap to start breaking temperature records!!

I am looking forward to Fall and Winter this year for so many reasons: Snowboarding with my son, sister, & hopefully my nephew, a trip up to the great north, Halloween in general, Christmas visits with family I barely get to see, and last but definitely not least our new Holiday Mini Catalog!!! It has really put me in the holiday mood!

I challenged myself a few posts ago to pick my favorites from the 2011-2012 Big Idea book and catalog so I am doing it with this mini as well. Who would have thought that this little book would have so many things I want! This is the first catalog that I truly want everything in it.

Here they are:
10. Stampin Card Keeper 124107 $8.95.
I now have a box that I can decorate anyway I want. It even has divider tabs to separate the cards.

9.  It's a Wrap Holidays 122772 $19.95
So much fun to wrap little Hershey Nuggets in or make a great tag! I love this set.
8. 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler 124105 Early Espresso 124104 $7.95 each
I am a ribbon junkie and when I saw this ribbon I literally yelled Yippee :-) It is so wonderful and looks stunning on cards!
7. Frostwood Lodge DSP  124002 $10.95
Nothing says Holidays like this set!!! I love it. I can't wait to make bows, cards, and even ornaments with it!

6. Stitched Stockings builder punch 124095 $16.95
Who doesn't love a coordinating punch? This set is so versatile, Christmas stockings, baby booties, witches feet and more!

5. Stitched Stockings Stamp Set 123784 $19.95
Christmas stockings, a child's socks, even a rocking horse! Yup all of those can be created with this set!

4. 25 & Counting 123794 $32.95
Advent calendars never go out of style and this stamp set is the perfect set to help us make a new one each year. It is also great for cards, tags, or a fun December Calendar.

3. Halloween Creeps 123829 $16.95
I love this set because it makes me smile every time I see it. I am thinking of making a frame for my bathroom and leaving it up all year long so every time I see I will be quaranteed a smile!

2. Christmas Lodge 123769 $25.95
WOW is all I said when I saw this set. That lodge is stunning and if you just add a little crystal effects and you have snow!

1. Simply Scored 122334 $29.95
It is amazing how much a tool can really change your life and this one doesn't disappoint! Scoring is so easy and the stylus stays on the track! Something my "other" board didn't do.

Whew! That was a tough choice; you could just add every other item in that book to my 11+. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you are interested in purchasing any of these items please visit my store or email me today and we can set up a workshop or have you join a club or class!

Happy Creating!!
