What is your favorite product from the new catalog?  Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? I can’t wait to read what you like.  What?  You don’t have a new catalog? If you do not currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and would like a new catalog, please email me today and I will make sure one is mailed to you.  Until next time…


  1. I love, love all the in-colors too. Here are some stamp sets that really caught my eye: Too Kind, Kind & Cozy,Polka Dot Pieces and Flower Shop. Lots to like. I agree with the magnetic platform, but find the price a little high as my post it notes really work well. Dar

  2. It is so hard to pick just one new product from the new catalog….several are on your list but I have many more….and not able to order just yet…will make the getting more exciting!

  3. I haven’t really had time yet to pick favorites from the new catalog, but I know I am excited about the Magnetic Platform.

  4. I have no idea of what to expect with this card but I like what I see with lots of color, layer, texture and pearls! Favorite products will I don’t know yet but I think that magnetic platform thing is going to be really great to use. I love those candy dots. I like some of the new punches too. I was a bit miffed about not having holiday stuff in there so I am really looking forward to the holiday vesion!

  5. I can already count at least four layers!! Can’t wait for the full reveal!!

  6. I am in love with the new In Colors…and I got them all!

  7. I love the Tape It set. i don’t have it ordered yet, but I do think it would be very versatile.

  8. I really can’t pick 1 favorite. I like a lot of the new things.

  9. Wow I can alot going on even in the peek.. can’t wait for the reveal.
    I have WAY too much I like in the new catty. Already got the vintage buttons but I’m loving the chalk talk dies and matching stamp set. I make so many table favors and I can see this one already completed! hugs.

  10. Well, you know me…our choices are SO alike it’s crazy!! Except I did put the magnetic platform as my #1 thing I like most from the new catty!! I can’t wait to get mine!!!!

    Can’t wait to see your card!!

  11. Can’t wait to see your card, love the colors! I know I am going to love the new magnetic platform, it’s a must have! My favorite sets are Kind & Cozy, Wildflower Meadow, Gifts of Kindness and Six-Sided Sampler! And I love the new Candy Dots too!

  12. I am so liking the candy dots!

  13. Hi Ann. It was fun to read your favorites and it will be even more fun to see what you create with them. My must-have stamp sets were Kind & Cozy, Wetlands, and Simply Sketched. Favorite accessory: Candy Dots! I ordered them all!

  14. Ooooh, cannot wait to see the full card. I have a feeling I am going to love it. Favorite product(s)? Can I just say “ditto” to what you listed? The easier question for me to answer would be what do I not like. The answer to that would be nothing! Well, if I were being honest, my answer would be I don’t like not seeing any holiday sets in the new catalog – I miss that – but I digress. 🙂

  15. can’t wait to see that – after yellow,white, and green, my favorite color combination is pink, white, and green : )…look ma, no blue : ) Oh darn – Wetlands almost made it to my final cut but not quite – interested to see what you do with it, maybe I’ll get it later. Happy day!

  16. Card looks interesting. I think the new magnetic platform is going to end up being a favorite. Love the new in colors!

  17. Oh, your card looks very interesting and beautiful as always and has red in it. :} Can’t wait to see the reveal.

    Have a great day and better day tomorrow
