My Top 10 Products in the Autumn Winter (Holidays) Catalogue

I have had a lot of emails and messages asking me which are my favourite products just released in the new Catalogue...

So I sat down and came up with my Top 10... which means I had to cheat quite a lot as I really do LOVE so many items in this mini catalogue... so here you go...

Click on the picture for full product details in my Online Store... Please note that I have used bundles (with 15% discount) where relevant - but the separate items ( eg stamps/dies or stamps/punch) are available separately ...

1(A). 140853 Happy Scenes Photopolymer Bundle                                                                                       
Price: £31.25

1(B) 140860 Festive Fireplace Photopolymer Bundle                                                
Price: £34.75
 Festive Fireplace Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Well I love this one (TWO!) to bits! Don't quite know what I did without them!! But none of my customers spotted these beauties when they first saw the catalogue... needless to say... they have now!

10 projects already made and 20-30 on my ever growing list! A day doesn't go by that I don't think of something else I have to try!!

Believe me - these window dies can flex out and have staying power in your crafting arsenal!!! And definitely not just for Christmas!

2. 140862 Jingle All The Way Clear-Mount Bundle                                                 
Price: £26.25 ( also available in Wood)
Jingle All the Way Clear-Mount Bundle by Stampin' Up!
This is the product that most took my breath away when I first saw them.... but again my customers didn't spot at all.... again proving that the non-stamp images don't pop out at us at first viewing of a catalogue! As these dies are a corker!

The dies are the first product I opened and got out to cut when I received my pre-order expect lots of makes when I have shared a few more Hearth & Home projects... Loving these too!!! and another all year round product...

3. 140864 Holly Jolly Greetings Wood-Mount Bundle      
Price: £34.25    (also available in clear mount)                                       
Holly Jolly Greetings Wood-Mount Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Now this one is a surprise one to me at no. 3... a bundle I changed my opinion on very quickly when I started using it...

I absolutely loved the Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies on first sight... merry, jolly & peace... but I reckoned I could wait for the stamps...

But there was an ordering glitch for pre-order - and I couldn't just order the dies on their own - and all I can say is Thank Goodness I decided to order the bundle - these stamps are continuously out in my craft room. SO SO useful!

4. Among The Branches Photopolymer Bundle                                  
Price: £19.25
Among the Branches Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Now a bit of a cheat from me here... as I don't have the whole bundle yet - just the Woodland embossing folder...however I am rectifying that situation on my next order... but don't miss this embossing is another keeper... and not just for Christmas...

5. 140844 Snow Place Photopolymer Bundle
Price: £39.75
Snow Place Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Oh this is so cute! I just think this set is adorable... the penguin is the best ever...lots of ideas for him... and the snowmen are fabulous... fabulous dress up kit for kids and big kids alike...

6. 140868 Flurry Of Wishes Photopolymer Bundle                                                 
Price: £29.75
Flurry of Wishes Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Well what can I say... such gorgeous snowflakes  - 3 of which that can just be punched out. Simples. And lovely greetings too... can't wait to get my hands on this one when my next order arrives...

And I have to add another item to this bundle.... told you I was going to cheat... but these rhinestone embellishments are fabulous! Multi faceted, sparkly and good enough for jewellery!

7. 140850 Peaceful Pines Photopolymer Bundle                                                
Price: £39.75
Peaceful Pines Photopolymer Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Now this product was probably the item that most of my customers eyes settled on first during their first viewing of the catalogue... so I pushed it onto my pre-order list rather than waiting... so glad I did.. it is a really clever stamp & die combination...already been used a lot... and so much more to come!

8. Winter Wonderland Suite
Big cheat going on here...lots of co-ordinating products in this I thought I would count my favourites as just one choice... my favourite parts being the papers, vellum, snowflake elements, stamps and embellishments

9. 140856 Embellished Ornaments Wood-Mount Bundle                                                
Price: £44.50 (also available in clear mount)
Embellished Ornaments Wood-Mount Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Again...these are a product that I heard audible gasps from my customers when they first saw them... The precision die cut baubles are stunning - the stamps are amazing - they definitely do what you see. Need baubles...these are the ones to get!

And another cheat for this list on my part- need precision cuts from your dies - then don't miss the Precision Base Plate - it does make an incredible difference for those tricky die-cuts!! ( Baubles and Butterflies too...) I do so like my life to be easier.....

And last but not least....

So that is it ... my Top 10... may you be able to make your mind up better than me!!!


  1. It is hard to choose, but I think the "Jingle All the Way" is my favorite! I just love the wavy landscapes, words and the tiny little images to pop in the scenes! ~ Donna E.

    1. Nice to see a mind more made up than mine Donna! Agree with you entirely... Jingle All the Way is such a fabulous set....
