My Top Holiday “Must-Haves”

Each new catalog I like to do my top 10 list. When it’s the annual catalog I do the top 10 stamp sets and then another list for accessories. Because the holiday catalog is so much smaller I decided to combine them but then I couldn’t limit it to 10 no matter how hard I tried. So here is my top baker’s dozen list.


Merry Christmas to All (p. 5)  This is a perfect word set for Christmas and the die cut words are beautiful. Such a pretty font.

Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder (p. 5)

Signs of Santa (p. 19)  When I first saw the catalog I thought this was cute but didn’t plan on ordering it. After seeing so many cute cards I did order it and it has become my favorite of all. Many of the framelits will cut out designs from the DSP too. I love that Stampin’ Up! is doing this with so many papers now. What is hard to see from the catalog is that the DSP has lots of white flocking on it. So darn cute!

Santa’s Workshop Memories & More (p. 21)  Memories & More packs aren’t just for scrap booking. They make quick and easy cards too. This is one of the best packs ever. For just $10 you get 50 cards in two sizes which includes sheets of stickers. Many of the cards are glittered. I will be doing a class using this pack along with the red coordinating envelopes.The class will be making 20 Christmas cards (you will have plenty of leftovers for other projects) and is $35.  More details to come on time and date.

Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (p. 29)  Six of the sheets have beautiful copper foil accents on one side which coordinate beautifully with the glimmer paper below.

Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper (p. 29) I love that the new glimmer papers no longer flake off bits of glitter. The rich colors in this package coordinate with the Joyous Noel DSP

Take Your Pick (p. 30)  I highlighted this new tool in the previous post. It is amazing what all is included and what it can do and it’s only $10!

Timeless Tidings Project Kit (p.33)  Project kits are a quick and easy way to make a lot of cards. This designs in the set are beautiful. It coordinates with the Timeless Tidings stamp.

Buffalo Check Background Stamp (p. 38)  Doesn’t look like much here but it does make great backgrounds. I just haven’t had a chance yet to play with it.

Country Home Stamp Set (p. 43)  Another set I didn’t think I wanted until I started seeing card samples. Now I am in love with it.

Tin Tile Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder (p. 43)  May be my favorite embossing folder of all time. Use our new Galvanized paper with it and it truly does look like an old tin tile ceiling.

Country Lane Designer Series Paper (p. 43)  What can I say, it’s the perfect paper to use with the Country Home stamp set.

Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon (p. 49)  I am a glitter girl. Love anything that sparkles and shines so this ribbon was a must.

What are some of your favorites?

I’m getting ready to go stamp and craft for four days with friends. It will give me the chance to start using some of the new holiday products without any distractions. Well, maybe a game or two of mahjong will be thrown in. We truly work from early morning until late at night crafting with mahjong breaks.
