Stampin Up -- Top 10 Faves

Catalog arrived yesterday.   I remember when I would carry it around like a kid's security blanket, examining every page for hidden gems.  I miss those days.  I miss hanging around Splitcoast all the time and knowing folks.  I hate change! 

Enough with the memory lane.  Here are my top ten fave products from the 2014 - 2015 catty:

10.  Little Buddy Birthday -- the cuteness speaks to my inner child. 

9.  Handcarved Background -- imagining it embossed and watercolored.  I have a million ideas on how to use this.

8.  Tag A Bag Gift Boxes -- comes with a clear acetate slip off cover, for my imaginary gifts of cookies that I may make someday.  It could happen!

7.  Polka Dot Impressions Folder -- love the large dots. Inking the inside of the folder would work.

6.  Forever Florals --  I'm a sucker for flowers and the sentiment is "normal" (you know what I mean!)

5.  Kind Koala -- one stamp.  cute, no issues with lining up and the sentiment is perfect.  And I can color it.  Or not.  Paper piece.  Etc. 

4.  White Vellum Cardstock -- the best I've found. Thick enough to emboss.

3.  Clear Mount Blocks -- (I have one and it is sooo comfortable)

2.  Cardstock -- still my favorite.  easy to hand cut, die cut, fold, crease, stamp, and cut with the silhouette

1. And my favorite product in the catalog is:

Draw The Line

It's is photopolymer!  It's photopolymer!  Make plaids, backgrounds, color, emboss, etc.  Love this set.

Enabler!! I need to order some dimensionals and I have a feeling, now, that I'll have to add a few things.

I know what you mean! I used to pore over the catalogue for hours, take it to bed for nighttime reading, ogle the pages with friend, the whole bit. I still opened it immediately when I got it in the mail, but it wasn't the same now that I am not a demo anymore.

I did find quite a few things I liked in it, some of the florals, including the chrysanthemum you found here. Then there is the hunt for the stamp sets that are not to my taste (unibrow owls fell into this category). I liked the new In Colours and think I will be getting some of those, especially the new green. Happy New Stampin' Up Year!

I know exactly what you mean -- the company is changing, as is the industry. hopefully, all to the good. I see SU reaching out to a range of stampers and I like that.

I have always enjoyed seeing the faves others would list. Yours are interesting. I forgot to look at the new colors. There are new colors this year? I always love that! I have to say I love the koala stamp, too. Image and sentiment in one. Easy. Yes, I do know what you mean about "normal" sentiments. I do love a well-turned phrase and beautiful quotes, but prefer a sentiment that sounds like something I would say.
