Sarah's TOP TEN Favorite 2013 Holiday Catalog Items 


10. Joy to the World Stamp Set [131796 (w) $21.95, 131799 (c) $16.95]: A bold sentiment set great for use as focal images and as accent sentiments.


9. Christmas Collectibles Bundle (stamps + punch) [133282 (w) $31.95, 133283 (c) $27.95]: Really modern in design.  Perfect for cards, scrapbook, and gift tags.  The coordinating punch makes crafting super easy!


8. Build a Banner Simply Created Kit [133507 $19.95]:  All you need to create lovely home decor banners.  You are only limited by your imagination!  (And if your lacking in mojo - there are Simply Created Accessory Kits to help you out!)

7. Halloween Hello Stamp Set [131718 (w) $18.95, 131721 (c) $14.95]: If you know me, you know how much I love Halloween.  Remember how gaga I was last year with the gogglier????  This year Stampin' Up! has even more Halloween goodness.  The Halloween Hello stamp set has a bunch of really cute little Halloween images - perfect for cards and to make little tags for favors.

6.  Color Me Christmas Stamp Set [131742 (w) $20.95, 131745 (c) $15.95]: Um, have you seen that reindeer wearing a sweater and scarf??? I don't think I need to say any more.

5. Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape [132156 $4.95]: Have you tried washi tape yet?  I'm new to it too, but let me tell you - once you start using it, you won't want to stop.  It's so easy to embellish all of your paper crafting projects.  How easy is applying a piece of tape to paper?  Simple, right?  That's how easy it is to use washi.  Plus it's for Halloween! Spooooooky!

4. A Banner Christmas [130252 (w) $21.95, 130255 (c) $16.95]: This is a really, really cool Christmas set.  It has a very modern, stylish look to it.  Banners and chevrons are so hot right now, your cards will be super chic.  My favorite stamp?  HO3 just because it reminds me of scientific shorthand!

3. Silver 1/8" Ribbon [132137 $4.95]: Super shiny silver ribbon that adds sparkle to your cards without the mess of glitter. 


2. Winter Frost Specialty [132341 $12.95]: All of your favorite shades of aqua (Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo) paired with cool Smoky Slate and silver foil make this paper wonderful for Christmas, Hanukah, and winter projects.
1. Festive Flurry Bundle [133284 (w) $54.95, 133285 (c) $46.95]: My favorite stamp set out of the whole holiday catalog.  Who doesn't love snowflakes.  They have a fun, geometric design to them which makes them really bold.  Cutting them out is a snap with the coordinating framelits.  You can purchase them in a bundle for a 15% discount.

My Top 10 Picks from the 2013 Spring Catalog

Do you love the new Spring Catalog?  It's chock full of great items.  Here's a list of my Top 10 items from this catalog!!!

10. Delicate Details Lace Tape (130966) $9.95
I have been in despair since one of my favorite lacy punches was retired...this is a great replacement!  Plus it's tape so the adhesive is already on it!  Saves you the mess of having to pull out the Tombow Mono glue!
9. Cuddles & Kisses Stamp Set (127314 [c] $18.95, 127312 [w] $25.95) 
A much needed stamp set for New Arrivals and Baby Shower cards, invites, etc.   If you are coming to the Brides and Babies Stamp a Stack you will get to try out this set!


8. Swallowtail Stamp (129216 [c] $13.95, 129213 [w] $17.95)
 I am a butterfly fanatic, so you know this had to make the list.  It is such a large, beautiful, detailed stamp.  I can see this as being the focal point for a lovely coordinated card set.  Wouldn't that be a lovely gift for Mother's Day?

7. Make a Wish Stamp Set (129222 [c] $17.95, 129219 [w] $23.95)
I love new birthday sets. Sometimes you just need something new for your birthday cards.  I like this set because you can use it to make invitations as well!  Check out this post for a sample I made using this set.



6. Henry Says Stamp Set (128093 [c] $21.95, 128090 [w] $29.95)
As soon as I saw this guy, I knew I had to have him! I love that he can be used for serveral different holidays.  You can easily make him any color by just stamping on colored cardstock and cutting out!


5. Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels (129324 $4.95)
My new favorite embellishment!  Add lots of sparkle, super-sized, to your cards and projects!

4. Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (129378 $7.95)
I have been waiting for something with hexagons!  It's finally here!  I love this folder. It adds an awesome pop of modern looking texture to your projects.  Check out the Spring Catalog for lots of samples using this folder.
3. Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406 $15.95)
Once again with the butterflies!  Had to have it!  Layer a Bitty Butterfly on top of an Elegant Butterfly punch for a lovely effect!

2. Hearts a Flutter Bundle (131097 [c] $36.95, 131098 [w] $42.95)
Valentine's Day is my second favorite holiday to make cards for (after Halloween, of course) so when I saw this bundle, I knew I had to have it.  The bundles are so great because you get both the stamp set and the coordinating framelits at a discounted price. Not only is it great for Valentines, but think of all of the adorable little banners that could be made with this set!

1. Ovals Collection Framelits Dies (129381 $26.95)
This is another item I have been waiting for!  I love ovals!!!!  These are the perfect dies to make great focal points on your cards.  I was just so happy to open up the catalog and see these right there on page 4.  It was #1 on my to buy list and therefore it's #1 on this list as well!  A must have!!!!

I hope you have enjoyed my Top Ten list for this catalog!  Have I helped you focus your wishlist or have I added more on to it?  :-)
