My Top 10 Picks from the New August-December Mini Catalog

Hello and welcome to my blog today I am here to share with you my top ten favorite new items from the August-December Mini Catalog.  I have been through the new catalog many many times and wanted to take a few minutes and share my favorite new items with you.  All the images that you will see are copyrighted by Stampin' Up!.  Let's get started with my favorites count down shall we.  

Number 10:  Real Red Braided Linen Trim


One of my new favorite ribbons has to be the Real Red 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.  This thick rustic ribbon in festive Real Red can be unwoven easily if you want a frayed look or leave it as is for a fun and unexpected reveal.  

9.  Yuletide Paster Stamp Set: 

I fell head over heels with the Yuletide Pasture Stamp Set because of the little long horn bull with the ornaments on him.  And not to mention the other cozy critters in this fun little stamp set.  But the bull just made me giggle.  



Create Christmas cards and other paper crafts with the Yuletide Pasture Stamp Set. The set includes Christmas greetings and cute pasture animals, decorated and ready to celebrate Christmas! 


8.  Tag Buffet Project Kit 

Tag Buffet Project Kit

Create stunning seasonal gift tags with the Tag Buffet Project Kit! This kit is perfect for new crafters, busy crafters, or crafters on the go. Pair with the Tag Buffet Photopolymer Stamp Set (sold separately), ink, and your choice of adhesive for complete tags.


I adore the Tags Buffet Project Kit not only do I love the tags that's in the kit but I love the little box that everything comes in.  It's like a little Christmas Mini Paper Pumpkin Box that's ready to put a tag on it and give as a gift.  Which is a perfect gift for any crafter.  The tags in this set are not only great to put tags on gifts at Christmas but you can use them as elements on card fronts.  You could totally make thrity easy cards for Christmas.  Which is why it made my list.  

7.  Sequins for Everything 

SEQUINS FOR EVERYTHING

Decorate your handmade cards and other paper crafts with a rainbow of colors. The Sequins For Everything are no-hole sequins in 4 color groups and 3 different shapes: faceted circle, flat circle, hexagon. Each color group has 3 different shades.  I love the fact that I can purchase one embellishment and have some for four different seasons or holidays.  I also love that these sequins have no hole in the middle of them. And, they are perfect for shaker cards as you can see below.  

6.  Gift Wrapped Bundle 

GIFT WRAPPED BUNDLE

The Gift Wrapped Bundle includes the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set and the Gift Bow Builder Punch. This bundle is perfect for other occasions not just Christmas!  What other occasions can you think of to use this for?  I can think of Birthdays, baby showers, and so many more occasions that you may give a present for that you could use this set for above and beyond just the holidays.  

GIFT WRAPPED PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET
A thoughtful gift (or a handmade card) is made even more thoughtful when it's thoughtfully wrapped with a bow on top. Stamp images of beautiful ribbon bows and finish it off with any of the sentiments included in the festive Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. This stamp set is also available in French.
* 12 photopolymer stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d

GIFT BOW BUILDER PUNCH
What's a gift without a bow? Incomplete! The Gift Bow Builder Punch will be the perfect touch to complete any project you're working on. Whether it's for Christmas, tag-making, card-making, gift-giving, or something else, this punch is perfect. Talk to your demonstrator about coordinating products.
* Largest punched image : 2-1/4" x 1-3/4" (5.7 x 4.4 cm)

5.  Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper 

MAGIC IN THIS NIGHT DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

The Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper was one I wasn't sure about until I got it.  Once I got it I fell instantly in love with it.  I have a number of projects coming that I have used this paper for. 

Dress up your Halloween projects with elegant watercolored designs and florals from the Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper. This high-quality printed paper is an excellent scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more. The pack includes Halloween-themed images such as spiders, spider webs, bats, and florals.  With all the little elements in this paper there's a lot of ideas that you can come up to use this paper for during the year besides just Halloween.  Which was another reason that I added it as one of my top ten favorites.  


4.  Plaid Tidings Suite Collection 

PLAID TIDINGS SUITE COLLECTION

The classic images and patterns of the Plaid Tidings Suite Collection are ready for any holiday project whether it is Christmas, Halloween, or any paper craft you create during the year. You’ll love what you can do with these fresh designs and beautiful collection. The Plaid Tidings Suite made my top ten list because of two major reasons.  One was because the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper was designed with so many different colors that you can find a use for it for so many different holidays.  The second reason was it was plaid.  And I just adore plaid in cloths and when we had plaid in the past papers I always went to them first.  

The Plaid Tidings Suite Collection includes
* Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* Celebration Labels Dies (10% off)
* 3/8" (1 cm) Embroidered Ribbon
* Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper

I love the dies in this suite for the fact that they make great bag toppers and have a wonderful edge around each one.  


3.  Coming Home Bundle

Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set

Add whimsy to your Christmas projects with the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Let these sweet gnomes bring a smile to your face.  The Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set was one set that I knew that I had to own as soon as I saw it.  I thought the little Gnomes in this set were so cute and versatile.  You could do a little masking with them and make the images in this set go for many more occasions then just Christmas.  


1.  Have a Hoot Bundle 

My number one pick from the NEW August-December Mini Catalog was the Have a Hoot Bundle.  I personally loved this bundle as soon as I flipped to it's page in the catalog.  I loved the fact that they were Halloween and Christmas in the same set.  I also love the dies not just because they the stamped and colored images but they have dies that could be used for other cards.  I the tag dies that you see here in the top right of this picture can be used to create a shaker card or a window card.  

HAVE A HOOT BUNDLE

The Have a Hoot Bundle includes the Have a Hoot Stamp Set and the Peek-A-Hoot Dies. This bundle is also available in French.
